My parents arrived on Thursday and left yesterday. They usually only stay a couple of days mainly because my father gets bored and wants to get back to the city. It's strange that lately funny things that have happened over the years have been popping into my head. I was remembering one time they were here, my father had just spent hundreds of dollars on new false teeth (uppers). He was quite proud of them I might add. So the first morning they got up and Roger had just finished in the bathroom, washing, shaving, etc. He came out and dad went in. He wasn't in there long when he came out and said he couldn't find his false teeth. Said he had left them on the bathroom window sill wrapped in a paper napkin. Mom and I went in to look around....no sign of the teeth. I then asked Roger if he had seen dads teeth, wrapped in a paper napkin on the sill. He says that he didn't see any teeth but there was a paper napkin on the window sill and he flushed it down the toilet. Well....Dad was livid, I burst into tears, Roger tried to lighten the situation by saying that we could dig down to the septic tank, take the cover off and look for the teeth, a bad move! And, mother was in the middle of it all trying to calm everyone down. Well, my father being a rather vain man wasn't going to stay around here with no teeth in his head so he told my mother to pack her bags, he was going back to the city. Of course, now I can laugh at it but at the time it was terrible.
It was a good visit this time. Friday night we had friends in to celebrate Rogers birthday. Had a fine time although I don't think Dad heard a word that was said as he's gone quite deaf this past year and doesn't want to spend the money on a hearing aid. I think he's starting to change his mind about that now though because he realizes he's missing out on so much.
The weather has been quite nice. Leaves are changing colour and I'm looking forward to those wonderful smells that fall provides. I expect I'll be busy all this week preparing for winter. No signs of any bears as yet. Will be next month if they do decide to come around.
