Day 359 - Dad, April, Mom2 & Larissa

As usual, I slept in until noon-ish. My Dad phoned & said he was on his way out. YIKES! I was not prepared! Of course, the house hadn’t been cleaned yet & there were all the leftover dishes from last night’s Chinese fest. He & April showed up shortly after I got off the phone with him. I tidied up a little while they sat & in the living room & we visited.

My Dad is due to retire soon & in preparation for that, he bought an RV. For those of you who don't know my Dad, that is about the most extreme thing I could think of him doing. Buying a horse. Yes. Buying a horse trailer. Yes. Buying some fancy custom made cowboy boots. Yes. An RV?!? No way! I haven't seen it yet, but they are picking it up tomorrow. I am anxious to know if it has the same horn 'jingle' as the RV in Meet the Fokkers... hee hee hee - Jack Byrnes eat your heart out! Perhaps now Dad will travel around a bit more & see some of the country side he's been missing!

The 4 of us enjoyed some tea & plenty of conversation before they had to drive home. They had helped April's daughter pack up her apartment today, as she is moving to San Diego. I joked that I should look her up when I go back to TJ. It didn't go over well. Oh well. 

They left late afternoon & shortly thereafter Jaco & I left for town to see Larissa one last time. I was feeling badly that I didn't make it to the Tattoo Festival, as it would have been fabulous advertising for her, but unfortunately it was a busy weekend for us. 

Jaco & I went to the Broken Plate for supper, but I had a migraine find me on the way into town. Needless to say, I didn't enjoy dinner much. Jaco did! He hadn't eaten Greek food prior, so it was a pleasant experience for him! We picked up Mom2 on our way to Larissa's & had a short & sweet visit. Larissa had a plane to catch & was trying to straighten out the loose ends from her weekend in Calgary. We managed to get in a quick visit & a few hugs. I'm sad to say I don't think she'll be back this way next year. Looks like I'll have to plan a trip out East! (Finally!)

We miss you Larissa! Thank you again for making my head beautiful!!! 


 Under his hat he had more hair than me!!!
Hard to believe it's been 10 years since we met! Love you girls! xxxx
