The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it isn't simple. ~Doris Janzen Longacre

On the road again ...

We just about ready to roll out, the borrowed car trailer is loaded and strapped down. Even packed the kitchen sink ...It's going to be a mission getting the wooden base off again tomorrow and it staying put where we take it off. I got one chance and that's it he says! George has gone off to bed about an hour ago. I still got a few things to do before I'm ready to get a little beauty sleep. I made some "Padkos" (food for the road)just a few rolls with roast beef and mustard. I remember the days when Padkos was boiled eggs, sandwiches and chicken drumsticks and a flask of strong coffee. You'd stopped by the roadside, pulled out the picnic basket, everyone hovering around the car hugging a mug of coffee. Do you remember those days?

Our friends Nilo and Des are also coming, It's been a interesting progress with all the help and advice Nilo has been getting on Facebook, baking Aniseed Rusks to take along. Can't wait to try them. See ya there Nilo.
Better go now and finish the packing Have a great weekend
