HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the Fathers!
Jim has been a great father and I'm proud of him. When he was in the military, he still kept in contact with his sons. Thanks for being there for them when you could. Both boys called, that's great and we're very proud of them for the wonderful job they're doing with their own sons.
Thanks to everyone that commented about why we have icicles hanging inside the door of the freezer. We tried the paper to see if it pulled out and it does. It's like there's no tension at all. We're not real sure if the door needs to be adjusted or if the seal isn't right. We're still working on it.
I decided to look into a trip to Canada for next summer. I've been chatting with Sandra, who is in Canada, and since she isn't coming to the U.S. anymore (read her story here) I really do want to meet her, and that will require us to go north, where it's cooler in the summer. We may make plans to travel up to Ottowa, Ontario next summer, along with stays in North Carolina and Illinois to again be with family. So, if we're in Canada why not take the trip to Newfoundland or to Nova Scotia? It's only seven hours farther, and we have all summer. It's a thought that we'll work on... Jim hasn't said no to it.
We watched the U.S. Open and the NASCAR race all afternoon. The A/C in Tumbleweed is working really hard, and we also have a fan running. It was 95 degrees with 65% humidity outside, and our inside temp doesn't get much below the low 80's. We're still learning how to handle summer weather (just like we learned how to handle the cold last winter). Keeping the night shades down and running the ceiling fan helps. I think the weather forecast is more of the same for seven more days. I'm still better off in the summer heat than the winter cold.
We have some more things to do with the grandkids this coming week, so stay tuned!
