It is sure nice to have my computer back up and running.  With the damaged cord, it took me a week of fiddling to actually get it charged.  The new cord has fixed it.  I hadn’t been able to download my photos so I had quite a few to look at last night.
We went to Vancouver Island on Thursday driving the car.  We sat for three hours waiting for a ferry which made the long trip even longer.  We stayed with my sister Janet and husband John in Qualicum Beach. 
On Saturday, we attended the service for Bill who was Aileen’s cousin Gloria’s husband.   We first met Bill in about 1969 when Aileen discovered a cousin had moved to Port Hardy where we were living at the time.  Since we began our RV living lifestyle, we have parked many times at their place south of Campbell River and enjoyed many visits.  We got to know many of Bill’s friends in the area and it was nice to see so many of them at the service.
We came back to the motor home yesterday so Aileen had a day of rest before starting the next round of busy.   A couple more dental visits and Richard and Georgia are coming tomorrow for a few days too.  We are planning on taking the motor home over to the Island early next week and will probably be there for the summer.  Aileen has a follow up appointment to see the eye doctor regarding her cataract surgery last summer.  We have RV rallies in June and September and two weeks of house sitting for a cousin in June.  Not sure what the rest of the summer will yield.
