Birthdays, Anniversaries and Bed Renovations

First of all, Happy Birthday to my younger sister, Margie who turned 40 something today. It was also an anniversary for us. Three years ago today we took delivery of our fifth wheel and drove it from Stittsville, Ontario to Carleton Place, Ontario so we are officially on the road for three years!

I was up at 6:00 a.m. today having been awakened at 4:30 a.m. by a thunderstorm and heavy rain. It hasn't rained here for a long time and wouldn't you know that the day we're scheduled to take the RV into Peterborough to have our bed adjusted it would rain. Lucky for us the rain quit while we were doing our outside stuff, it rained a bit on the way to Peterborough and was foggy, hazy and humid. We arrived there well before 8:00 a.m. and our appointment wasn't till 8:30 a.m.

After unhooking the truck we left to find a place to have breakfast. We wound up at what we know - the Zellers Diner and had a great breakfast. After that we ran a few errands, including Walmart where I saw this very colorful car and even though it wasn't a very nice day we decided to go to the zoo.

Peterborough Riverview Park and Zoo is a small zoo but it's free! Below are a few animals that posed for us. We stopped at Taco Bell so Gordon could have some lunch. I wasn't particularly hungry so picked at his french fries which I probably shouldn't have eaten.

We wound up back at Peterborough RV around 1:30 p.m. and waited there for them to finish. They completed the job just before 4:00 p.m. but they hadn't put anything at the bottom of the mattress so it wouldn't go forward off the bed so by the time that was rectified it was well after 4:00 p.m. By the time we got back to the RV park at Lindsay it was 5:00 p.m. but we were set up quite quickly so now we're here hopefully until our scheduled leave date of September 20th.

As far as the bed renovations, they did a very good job. The lift storage still works. It remains to be seen whether it will help. Sure hope so!
