Labor Day Drive

Riverton, Utah        High 79 Low 50

The weather has been absolutely wonderful the last few days. Neither too hot during the day or too cool at night.

Today we took a flash drive of our Canada pictures to Cindy’s sister in Orem. She couldn’t believe we had over 1500 pictures. Cindy was going to put them on discs, but found out it would have taken way too many discs, so we got a flash drive instead. Linda asked why so many pictures and Cindy told her there were well over 500 pictures the one day we went to the Bear Preserve.

We have most of our Florida trip planned and reserved. We are supposed to meet Linda and Cindy and Linda’s mom in Albuquerque after the Balloon Festival in October and then head for Florida.  

We had Devon and Penny with us and we decided to drive to Heber City. Of course, while we were there we had to stop at Granny's for shakes. It was a very busy place and the lines got very long after we stopped. Our order came out fairly quick because all we ordered were shakes.

Devon with a small. Good thing we didn't get him a large!
Coming back the traffic was awful, Partly because a lot of people had today off, and partly because of a motorcycle accident in Provo Canyon. We saw a least 5 police cars, but no EMT or ambulance for the motorcyclist, who was laying on his back in the middle of the highway. His motorcycle was tipped over next to him. For about half of the 20 miles or so we drove through the canyon, , about half of it was 10 to 15 miles per hour. 

Tammy picked up Devon before we got home, so Cindy and I decided to go to a Restaurant called the Philadelphian.  We think they have better Philly sandwiches than we got when we were in Philadelphia a few years ago. It doesn’t take much to get us to go there. They also have very good home-style fries. The six inch sandwich gave us enough for another meal. 

The only other thing I did today was to put some repair tape stuff on our large awning. It was showing signs of wear by where it connects at the top and I wanted to get the repair done before it got bad enough to replace the whole cover. It is white like the awning and looks pretty good.

Thanks for visiting.
