Brothers - IN - Law

Where Are We Today
" The Ridge " Durham, Ontario

Each year around this time Pat and her sisters get together for a sisters weekend. This year they decided to get together from Monday to Wednesday. Their mom, who just turned 90, is facing surgery on Thursday to remove a large tumor. They will be all here to be with her as she goes thru this.

Pat and two of her sisters,there are three more
When they are together, the brothers - in - law get together for some of that time. We will spend our time here at " The Ridge " or over at " The Acreage " the other piece of property that Pat's sister Donna and her husband Gerry own near by.

 The first project I did this morning before the guys arrived was to put together a cargo carrier that I had bought at Princess Auto before we left London. It is to put on the back of the 5th wheel trailer to carry our bikes and whatever.  

All assembled

On the back of the 5th wheel
Today was the day I decided to erect the awning we bought before we left London  and the guys came over to help. That old saying, " many hands make light work " made the project an easy one to do and past the time with good company. I never thought to take pics during the process but here are a few after the fact.

This evening we were at " The Acreage" to BBQ some burgers for supper and sit by the fire for  awhile. Clemson and I headed back to ' The Ridge " just after 9 p.m. to spend some quite time before calling it a night.
Not sure what tomorrow will bring, but there is always something to do. So thanks for following along, until the next time, take care.
Gerry, Tom and John, supper is over.

  1. A project of that size is always better when there are extra hands to help in the assembly. It also makes for a casual social time. Things are looking good.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Thanks Rick and Kathy, yes extra hands sur do help and the social time is great. We always seem to have a good time when we're together.
