Yesterday I went for a brisk walk around the lake and got some good exercise in early. Later, while I was doing some work on the computer, Pam went into town and found 'non-dairy' cupcakes and a small birthday cake at Sam's Club. That was a surprise to me, I didn't know they had that kind of a selection. Since Adam is a vegan, it worked out well for us. It is birthday number 29 for him.
After lunch we left for the 90 minute drive to Meghan's house in Petrolia, Canada. It was more like a two hour drive with some construction along the highways. It was a beautiful day for a drive. When we got there, Meghan and her mom were with someone, so Adam took us on a little tour of the town. When Adam has a couple of days off work in West Bloomfield, MI he goes over the Meghan's house and stays with them. We drove around town and went out to the city park but it is still closed for the season.
Instead we spent a little while at the Coffee Lodge. It is a Starbucks type of coffee shop with an expanded menu and has some entertainment during the evenings. Seemed like a nice place and the coffee was good.
When we returned to Meghan's (actually her parents house) the 'coast was clear' so we went and visited for a while. Meghan is into the second session of this round of chemo and we appreciate your prayers for her. Keep it up! If you haven't visited her blog please do so: The Bees Knees. She is quite a woman and an inspiration to many of us!
'We' hit a milestone on her "For the Love of Meghan" fan page on Facebook with just over 1,000 fans! Help us reach the next milestone--10,000!! If everyone posts it in their blogs, emails, .... and sends a link to 10 people....
Also, feel free to buy a bracelet online--- there are hundreds out there, but lets get some more purple wrist band wearers! It is a great way to think about her and have a reminder to pray for her and her family and Adam!
Before long, her dad Bill arrived home from work and we chatted some more and talked of the upcoming golf season. The weather is really turning nice up her and we are getting to see spring again after seeing it begin in Arizona, Texas, Tennessee, Ohio and now here in Michigan and Canada. I love this time of year! Birds are chirping their heads off! Flowers and buds are starting to bust out all over.
Since we are so close to Meghan, we didn't over stay our visit and will be back again often. On the way back to our campground, Pam and I talked about how we had wanted to try our Bob's Big Boy Restaurant, so we stopped at one along I-94. Pam had something from the Soup and Salad bar and I had shrimp for dinner. Both were very good!
We returned to the Roadrunner in time for a little baseball on TV and then we called it a day.
Thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles. Hope you are having a good week!
Sounds like you all had a great visit! Meghan is certainly an inspiration to me.:) We continue to pray for her and the family. Isn't it wonderful how this lifestyle enables us to be wherever we need to be. I am sure Adam and Meghan appreciate you all being nearby for support and encouragement.ReplyDelete
You all take care and enjoy the area.
