It's official - I'm a bachelor for the next week or so!

Brad got away yesterday. He took a bus to Moncton and then a train to Montréal and on to Ottawa. He should be in our nation's capital by now. Hope he was able to catch some zzzz's on the train. The dogs and I slept in till 9:00 a.m. this morning, then I took them each for a walk, after gulping down some coffee. I decided to take the day off on vacation. I've had a pretty productive morning. After breakfast, I loaded up the car with our redeemables and took them to the redemption centre. (Growing up Baptist, that name always sounds a bit funny to me!) Then I came back and vacuumed out the car, something that has needed doing for a while now. I also did a load of laundry and now have to grab a bite of lunch. Brad's supposed to call to let me know that he (and the bike) arrived in one piece. Will probably meet the usual suspects for drinks after they finish work. We'll maybe got out someplace for dinner as well. I'll have to remember to tape Coronation Street, so I can watch it when I get back...

Hasta pronto, amigos!

It's nice to have some time to yourself every now and then. So enjoy it.

But not too much, you hear! LOL

I'm looking forward to "intercepting" Brad in Montreal tomorrow. It's too bad the forecast is calling for 40 to 60 percent chance of rain for the next few days, but rest assured I'll force him (if I need to) to have a warm shower or bath when he gets here. I still can't get over that he's doing such a long bike trek, but then that's Brad, isn't it! :)

As for you, enjoy your "bachelor" week but, as Jim said, not too much! ;-P

Thanks guys! I'll try to behave - for the most part! ;0)

And Maurice, Brad will no doubt be ready for a hot shower by the time he gets to your place! And we'll both probably see you next month, too - we're heading to Montréal for a weekend in early November - flying this time!
