|North side is finished....and garden stuff temporarily placed behind.|
|View from the north side looking south. Vinyl siding is the same colour and style as the siding on the house.|
Our back yard sure has a barren look with all the leaves gone!
|Monday was a beautiful day. I managed to complete the west and north side siding job in about 5 hours. Not bad!|
|Soffits, eaves troughs, downspouts and a new roof (brown shingles) will be completed next spring.|
Just after lunch, Jeanette and I headed south of the 'Medicine Line' (John & Brenda's Incredible Journey) JB refers to the Canada/US border as the medicine line.
|Bellis Fair Mall in Bellingham, WA.|
We walked away with a new pair of shoes for me and a new pair of running shoes for Jeanette. My shoes (a pair of Rockport walking shoes) were at 1/2 price. Just last week, we saw the very same pair at 'The Bay' store in Langley, BC, selling for $160. I paid $79. There was a two for one (1/2 price off the sale price for the 2nd pair of shoes) sale in that very store. I only needed, or wanted, one pair of shoes so Jeanette went on the hunt and she bought a great pair of Saucony Running shoes - approx.regular price = $69 (on sale retail price of $54) for $27. What a bargain! That's a good saving.
Rockport shoes are one of my favourite brands. They fit my feet perfectly and I can walk in them all day long.
We headed back home, declared our goods at the border and we were waved on. What? We did not have to go into Canada Customs and pay the GST (Goods and Services Tax). Another saving. So, some days are just like that! WOW!
That's it. Not much else to report. Thanks for dropping by.
