About Me

Lee Creek, North Shuswap near Chase, B.C, Canada
We went full-time Rving in October of 2005! We retired from full time to part-time as of the end of 2015. Our present "small but comfortable" Wagon is a 2008 Camper trailer(TravelAir Rustler), pulled by a 2008 Dodge Dakota, 4X4.l. Our home base is a resort Park, in Oliver, British-Columbia, Canada. I retired in 2005 and my Life Companion, Valerie, retired October 1, 2006 from nursing. We invite you to follow and share our new adventures and mishaps. Life is but an adventure full of dreams yet to be fulfilled!

April 25 to 30, 2016; In Chilliwack and family visits

APR 25, MONDAY; Affairs
It is cloudy but the sun is breaking through.
This morning I completed that package to send to the insurance for reimbursement on our insurance while in Mexico, got my passport application and mailed the whole thing today.  I also called BELL and reinstated our service for the satellite.  At least they didn’t screw that up.
Val went for lunch with her cousin and I was left to fend for myself but Rochelle rescued me! J


APR 27, WEDNESDAY; Visit with grand-kids
We left the house by 2:40 under cloudy skies.  We drove to Coquitlam, met Joanne and McKinley at the house and when John got home, we drove to Jenaya’s school to watch the “Track & Field” competition.  This was just “for fun” competition but the kids gave it their best.  Jenaya didn’t come first in any of them but she DID give a great effort, coming second in a couple of the games. 
We went their house and John cooked a marvelous dinner of a fresh Fraser River Salmon with BBQ vegetables and couscous rice.  We had a very nice visit, gave the kids their presents which they loved, especially the shell jewelry boxes.  We were home by 10 pm; we left early as the kids had to go to bed.


APR 28 to 30; Another month gone by
On Thursday, I got my on-line accounts set up with Bell and Telus.  It is cloudy again….boring!  Val decided to do a wash today.  Kevin helped me installing the new window for the MH door.  It went very well and we had no problems.  Took us about an hour to complete the project.
Friday, Val went shopping by herself to buy some baby shower gift.  We now have a new glass on the counter, between the sink and the couch, which Kevin helped installing.  It will give protect against water splashing into the couch. 
We drove to Port Moody to visit son Jeffrey.  It is cloudy with some light rain drizzle (boring!) however it was sunny in Port Moody.  My brother Johnny came with us.  We had a nice visit, went to the Pub for dinner.  We drove back to the marina, had a night cap then said our goodbyes and drove back home.  On the way home, we got a call from Audrey that they are in Chilliwack at the RV Park so we made arrangement to visit tomorrow.  Johnny went home and we went into the house to say goodnight to Rochelle and found Hayley, Vanessa and Sean also having a visit.  A short visit then we said goodnight to everyone.
Saturday, turned out to be sunny and warm!  We had Aud & Marcel and Johnny over for dinner.  We cooked a ham and scallop potatoes and it was all a success.  We even had enough for “Care Packages” for everyone.  Both Hayley and Vanessa dropped in and Nessa even brought desert which was a surprise and devoured with ice cream.  We had an enjoyable evening and as usual, it all had to end eventually!  Everyone left by 10 pm and Nessa got to take some scallop potatoes as a “Care Package”.

That’s it for this month!
