good to hear from you growler. I usually drive to Ohio where I have family, leave my car there for the winter, hop on a plane, and get picked up at the airport by another family member who has previously been to my home and got my Florida car up and running for me. Who could ask for more? I am very fortunate and I know it. I also have emergency medical coverage insurance for my sojourn down south. that's one thing I " wouldn't leave home without it". Medical help in the states costs big time.

oh ohkay, just thought i'd let you know what i used for insurance while in the us,as i never had them even question me about what i was doing before,after or while in the us and using it ! i alway's paid for the service that was done (it isn't required that you do that) on my amex card, and sent the invoice (s) in when i got home,with a copy of the amex purchase slip,and always had the refund before i had interest due on my account !
(the one for my broken hip was a biggie to!) so now i get the rest of my family to buy it every year,so they are covered if they go anywhere out of ontario !)
have a great winter gf,i miss going to fl.every winter now, as i have a lot of people that come and go down there still! plus i still have my timeshares, if you know anyone that wants to rent or buy one,in kissimmee. (hint hint,wink wink !)

Kind of a sad day. We started the closing up procedure. Today we took down the slide and a light post. Every day something else will be put away. Boo hoo. Where did the summer go??????

Hubby asks, "What shall we do today Suzq?"
"Nothing, " is my answer.
His reply, "What fun is that? I think we should take down the cracked tree in the front yard."
And so we did. The 14 inch dead maple, about 80 feet high came down but not with a single thud, but several. It took us about three hours to bring it down, chop it up and clean up. All summer we've had the tree roped for security.
Now there's still one more that is slightly larger and is half down, thanks to a rotten trunk and a big wind storm. Currently it is wedged between two other trees. No danger of falling towards the cottage at all. Perhaps a spring job.
Oh, my aching muscles.......

Could be true Uncle Jack but the wood is at the cottage (no fireplace) and in the city our two fireplaces are gas burning.
We have two huge stacks of wood at the cottage. Several times a year we boat over to the mainland to a friend' s house and load them up with wood. They would normally purchase their wood. A Win Win for all!

Well, after a 12 hour day, we are back to the city. The cottage has been totally winterized, the docks all in /up and we are exhausted. We are home about three weeks earlier than last year, but the weather was so cold and wet, we decided it was better to be back in the city. Stayed 6 months and 1 week.
So today has been spent unpacking, washing the fishing boat we brought home (filled with 'stuff") and then took it to a local marina to winterize the motor. Next week we'll take it in for storage at a friend's place.
I have muscles that ache beyond belief. We brought the fishing boat into the dock and onto the trailer at 7Pm last night, in the dark. We are ceritifably crazy!!!!!!!!!!

Do you ever wonder why "having fun" is such hard work?

LOL Sure have observe! I guess we like the 'inbetween part' better than the opening and closing 'work' part. My bruises are too sensitive to even wash over them! But by this time tomorrow, all will be well again. Hubby says this keeps us 'young'. So does the Spa!!!

Yeah - sometimes I question how much I "enjoy" to compensate for doing what I don't "enjoy" to be able to "enjoy" it! LOL

Our philosophy is that we enjoy all that we can whenever possible as we are not youngsters anymore. Lived more life than there is left. As long as our health (and $$$) last, we intended to have fun.
