|We were definitely a traffic stopper|
|parked and setup|
We headed down to Cheryl's (my cousin's mom and my first cousin) as it was stated she was cooking supper for us all AGAIN!! this time it was cabbage rolls, garlic chicken, rice, breads and all the trimmings...We would not dare to weigh this motorhome today, especially if we are in it... because of all the good food thats been served to us this week..I'm sure we're over weight...now Rick knows where I learned my cooking traits, and why I'm also a 'large portion' server. At home hes forever saying we do not need a 'dutch oven' pot full of potatoes Elaine just for the two of us....I dont' know how to cook for just two people...so now I think he has an understanding as to why I don't.
|Hot turkey dinner-with all the trimmings - just one of the many wonderful meals Cheryl cooked-|
|My cousin Janice and I|
|Cousin Cheryl-the great cook!!|
|Andy Lisa's hubby-Breanne and Jamie Lynn hiding her face thats a 15 yr old thing :)|
|Lisa-she is so much fun!! and so funny|
While sitting out on her veranda after supper enjoying our drinks...we watched the sights of the neighbourhood...at the corner was a party of 20+ something year olds...they were all fairly inebriated and of course arguing amongst themselves.
One young lady was in pretty bad shape falling on the cement sidewalk and some guy took her down the neighbours dark driveway across the street. We immediately alerted the authorities...like come on she is someone's daughter...of course when the police arrived (two cars) he took off..and they were forever finding her in the dark backyard and getting her to her feet and into the car. At least we know she was safe for the night.
The police were pretty chatty with us all..and of course Cheryl delivered him some water, and pop to help him thru his long shift~I'm surprised she didn't land out there with a plate of cabbage rolls for him. As a joke I said to him...you should let me sit in the back of your car and get my picture taken.."I'm a tourist" home to visit..lol he said sure...talk about funny...yes we have pictures..but the wifi is too slow to load them up, so I will load up and catch up on all the missing pictures when the wifi is better...he even turned the lights on...now isn't that a story for my grandkids...I always said where theres no fools theres no fun...just seems I'm always the fool..haha...and just so you know it was my first ever experience in the back of a police car....oh well it gave everyone a great laugh...
|I guess theres one in every bunch!|
|cousin Breanne gorgeous girl|
Life wasn't so funny earlier ...Lisa and I had gone to the bank and I wanted to use the instant teller...they are not like the ones at home and I don't know why...at home you don't get the withdrawn $$ until your transaction is complete..here you get it first...due to gabbing with Lisa, when it spit out the cash I took it and left...and you know what happened next...about 6pm I realized I didn't have my bank card..yup it was still in the machine...we did go back and some good honest soul must have removed it and took it inside to the teller because I hopped on line and checked the bank and the only withdrawal was the one I made. The transaction would have been at the stage of 'would you like to make another transaction' when I walked away from it...so they might drink and fight on Friday nite but they're still honest good down home folk. I called the bank and canceled my debit card and will pick up a new one the first of the week..meantime Rick has his we can use.
Its a hot sunny day here in CB ..of course because its a travel day for us..but better to travel in the sun versus the rain...not sure where we will end up tonight, but will update if possible...
Have a super Saturday everyone, and remember
Home is where you park it
Elaine (Rick Tucker and lilly too)
