Brunch at the kids house.

Today was the big family Sunday brunch over at my younger son's house.  Ben and Danielle had the honor of cleaning up so we could all come over and mess it all up again.  But we had quiche and cheesy potatoes along with sausage patties at about 11:30.  So it wasn't officially lunch time, but darned close.

We watched the KC Chiefs and the Arizona Cardinals play on the TV, and the Chiefs are doing much better this year so that was nice.  But since we spend our time in Arizona in the winters, I have torn emotions, wanting the Cards to do well too.  After all they did come from St Louis originally as well.

This afternoon I went over and hooked up the trailer out of the storage lot that it is parked in.  I towed it back to the house here and backed it into the driveway.  We have a steep hill out front, so it has to be blocked fairly well, but my friend Larry up in Greenfield Iowa made a long pipe that goes into the wheels just for this occasion. Effectively the wheels cannot turn with the pipe between them and wedged up against the frame.

The motor scooter was under its cover, and I didn't take it off.  It should be fine under there.  I loaded Loyce's bicycle and tied it off to the side wall so it can't get over on the scooter, and some of the other items we normally take.  It was in the 70's here this afternoon, and the windy conditions slacked off for a while in the afternoon, so that makes for a nice day to do these things.

Tonight we are watching the TV and reading blogs, so that ends our adventures here.

At least we didn't have any snow like our friends up in Vancouver Island!!!!

  1. Starting to pack the trailer, that's a good sign, let the trip preparations begin, bet you can't wait to get to the SW. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

  2. It won't be long before you're headed out now! Arizona sounds pretty nice especially with our cold snap and of bit of, yes, snow!!

    The temperature is forecast to be 46F by Thursday so that should be enough to get rid of this stuff for good!

  3. I bet you'll be happy to head out soon! Safe travels. :)
