On the Road Again

As soon as Lloyd's meeting is over this morning we're heading down to Lethbridge for the long weekend - back on Tuesday.   We've been making this 5-hour drive every couple of weeks this summer in order to keep the lawn mowed down there.  There's been so much rain that the grass has been growing very fast and thick.  Makes for a beautiful lawn though.  And we really don't mind going down there.  It's a beautiful drive.  We're looking forward to the time, soon, when Lloyd retires and we can move down there and live in our little home there on a permanent basis.

We'll also be visiting with son Mike and his family and with Lloyd's sisters.  Did I ever mention that Lloyd's sister, Cheryl, was my best friend before I ever met her brother.  Needless to say she's one friend I've never lost track of over the years!

I don't know if this is a long weekend anywhere else in the world, but in Canada the first Monday in August is a civic holiday - just so there's a long weekend in every month during the summer.  Good deal for us.  I hope you all have a good weekend - long or not.

That's a long way to go to mow a lawn. Wow!! Enjoy the visit. We have lots of silly 3-day weekend "holidays" too. Maybe I think they're unnecessary because we never go any where or do anything fun. Happy weekend!

Hi Pat,

It is a long weekend here in Ireland too!

I hope that you have a good trip and enjoy every minute.

Take care.

We have a place 1000 km away and needless to say we don't ever cut the lawn. There must be an easier way like special grass that doesn't grow maybe? Have a nice long week end. Too bad the gas price went up 10c/liter!

How nice to have two homes - they are both beautiful. Lucky you.

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog I will be back to visit yours often. It's always nice to be able to relate with someone else that has a large family.

Have a super break Pat! Must be great to have two homes, and how lovely that you are going to go to that lovely house when Lloyd retires! See you soon.
