we met up with our Big Sis C and our Big Bro G, and our nearest neighbours, who really are Big Sis C's and Big Bro G's actual brother and sister (bahahahahah! try figuring that one out!!!!) a week and a half ago and had a beautiful meal, gorgeous company and a whole pile of laughter!!!! we had so much fun!!!
we rely on our Big Sis and Bro quite heavily ----- if it wasn't for them we would never know when our birthdays were....or our anniversaries!!! they never let us miss important days!
like our 16th anniversary!!!!
they gave us our new morning tea mugs and a bunch of different teas in a beautiful wood box.
we can't wait to meet up with them and our nearest neighbours E & D soon. we had such a good time - at one point me, E and D, were laughing our heads off. laughing and laughing and our stomachs were hurting! jambaloney, C and G kept asking us what we were laughing at?!?!?!? we didn't really know but kept laughing anyway! over the next 2 days i spoke to most of them personally and they either asked me, or i asked them, what we were laughing about. nobody remembered! how crazy is that?!?!?!?!
anyway - when the man goes into town to pick up his very first brand-new truck - he better bring home a gift for me!
and i know you've all been hanging by your fingernails off a ravine waiting for pics of the truck! wait no more!
it's a ford f-150XL, 4x4, 3.5litre Ecoboost....it's awesome!
the colour is called "caribou" and we love it!
we discussed what each of us needed in a vehicle and when i mentioned i thought i needed running boards - jambaloney agreed!
the inside is top of the line - no real fancy gadgets cuz we don't need 'em!
here's some more pics to bore you all to death!
ecoboost baby! at this rate Winston, Rob, Harry and PP are gonna start calling us "libtards" or worse, "hippies"! you be quiet Winston - i know when you were born!
ya baby - we're now driving a ford f-150....it's just like our last f-150...just newer and cleaner and has rust protection and an undercoating!
it's got 4 x 4 something or other....apparently a good thing when you live in the middle of nowhere. i have no idea. i just know that when we go from dirt road to pavement - if the pavement is dry, jambaloney puts it in neutral and changes the gears. and vice versa. or whatever. i have no idea - i just drove a super souped-up dodge dakota sport with tires that were a hair shy of being illegal in canada for about a year. my american friend went to germany working with a big satellite company and didn't want to put his truck in storage. anyway, that's a story for another time.
truckdura v.2 was bought at the best car dealership in the world - Canso Ford!!!
they have always treated jambaloney so well....and that's why they'll always keep our service! truckdura v.2 has seats for extra passengers!!!
screw passengers!!! we're greedy! and need room for a bucketload of things in our vehicle!
i told jambaloney that after he packs all of the essentials needed in a vehicle that you might find yourself in an emergency with, i told him - i wanted to check over the bins. i want to be 100% satisfied that he and i, and our cats if he is taking one to the vet or something, that we are safe!!! the only way to be safe is to be prepared.
i want to call the new truck "caribou-dura"...but jambaloney says otherwise. oh well...since he never reads the blog, we'll call the new truck "caribou-dura" amongst ourselves, k?
sending much love to all - old friends and new. i forgot to mention that i made a few new friends in the last few weeks. so nice to meet people that make you smile.
bye for now! xoxoxoxso
