December 23 to 26, 2013; washing and cleaning before departure

DEC  23, Monday; Laundry day!
56*F @ 7 am; sunny & mid 70’s and windy in the afternoon!
We went to do laundry at our usual place and lunch while there.  Came home and put everything away and made the bed.  We stopped for some milk and a couple other things and I also bought some cough syrup.  I am still not feeling great so went for a snooze and Val socialized with the neighbours.  HH was at Rudiger and Charlotte but I didn’t attend.  The wind has picked up and it is quite a cold wind too.  After a light dinner we watched some TV and I went to bed by 9 pm.

DEC  24, Tuesday; Wash day!
62*F @ 7 am! Mid 70’s in afternoon!
Carlo and his crew showed up at 8:30 am and proceeded to wash and wax our rig.  They finally left around 3 pm.  All this work for $80 US, just amazing.  We gave $100, being Christmas and all!  When he arrived, he asked if he could have a coffee so we made a pot.  Val made them sandwiches for lunch.  Val went to town to pick up a couple items for tomorrow.  We spent the afternoon socializing then had HH at Franks and proceeded to party until almost 9 pm.  Yes we missed dinner but Linda put out some snacks.

DEC  25, Wednesday; MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
67*F at 7 am and sunny but we have wind!  78*F in the afternoon
After Tucker’s walk, we spent the rest of the morning setting up tables and covering for them.  I called the kids around noon but missed Graham and his friend Courtney.  At 1pm we set up tables and served the food; turkey, mash potatoes, sweet potatoes, gravy, and the rest of all the trimmings.  For dessert, we had pies, sweets, pumpkin pie.  13 people were around the tables and we had a great time.  It went on till 5 pm.

DEC  26, Thursday;
16*C @ 7 am, very windy;  22*F in the afternoon!
One thing I didn’t mention before and meant to, the flies here are really bad.  You cannot sit outside in peace; they are all over you, your food and your drinks, that is why it is a good thing to have the wind as it keeps most of them away!  We kill at least a half dozen a day inside the rig.  I washed the jeep today so now that’s ready to go; 4 days to go! 

A group of us decided to go to “FAT BOY” for pizza and cervezas.  Afterwards, Frank decided to go to the Malecon, sit out and have a beer which we proceeded to do.  We watched the traffic and people go by and fend off the vendors.  We came home and relaxed before having HH at Rudiger’s yard.  We had BBQ steaks and salad for dinner then sat outside to admire the stars
