After all the Aussies had been in, out and about, with Portia more times then I care to mention,, I hit the books. That would be the Crabby Cabbie books. I took the time to organize July and August, with September to follow in another week's time. At that time I will enter it all onto the books if not before, and definitely before the 15th of October when the 3rd Quarter of the Year is due.
I also had to drive over to get Rob from where he dropped his one Crabby Cabbie vehicle off as it has gone in with a mechanical issue to be looked after. Never ending when one has a home or a vehicle(s), is it not?
After lunch I dropped down to see my Mother and take her a Tim Horton's coffee. They had entertainment in the common room, and I had asked her why she wasn't going down to listen to the music. She told me she doesn't care for music. Really ? my mother not liking music? that is a first.
Life changes with time, some good some not so good, but time waits for no one as changes take place.
After visiting with Mom I next stopped down to the Wiarton Chamber offices to meet the new girl who had been hired as a JCP (Job Creation Program) for Marketing. It was a pleasure to meet Grace, and great to now have 4 great staff members in the offices hopefully contributing to the growth of the the Wiarton Chamber and its lobbying for the town.
When I returned home Rob had left a parcel for me that had came in the mail. I was surprised as I was not expecting a parcel, however found it to be a most pleasant surprise.
Not too long ago a friend had posted on her Facebook page that the first 5 people to comment on her post would receive something from her within the Year. I did this same "pay it forward" a year ago sending 5 gifts out to five different people.
How nice to receive something, whether it only be a kind note, in the mail unexpectedly. Kindness goes a long way.
My girlfriend, Vicki, and I, are always entering in some kind of contest or another on Facebook. The most recent one was offered by a photographer in Alabama, Starla Doud Photography. Starla was offering a T-Shirt in support of Cancer for the person who was her 700 person to like her Facebook page.
You guessed it, I was number 700 ! Since my girlfriend, Vicki, has not just one Wiener Dog, but two, I had to gift the T-shirt to her. She just received it in the mail from Alabama today and sent me the photos ....
Thanks to Starla Doud Photography for the Contest Give Away !
Tomorrow is a busy day. A busy day calls for an early night, especially after such an eventful day, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
