A Little Gassy

Driving home from work, my car made a noise letting me know it was hungry. Not only was my car hungry but it was also dirty. I detoured to a local Petro Canada gas station and car wash.  They have this deal that if you buy two car washes you get a discount on the gas. At my last fill up at the same gas bar, I bought a couple car washes and received a 5¢/l discount.

During this visit, I selected the wrong type of gas in error and went into the gas bar to get the clerk to fix it for me. (No discount on gas today). While waiting to speak to him, I noticed a dime (2012) on the floor under the candy bar tray. Of course, I didn't have my camera with me to take a photo of the coin in its resting place, so I snapped a photo of the area outside instead (just before I left the gas bar area for the car wash). Now, my car is not only full but also clean.

Milling about

A couple Sundays ago, a friend and I took a mutual friend out for her milestone birthday. We took her to Sunday Brunch at the Old Mill. They sat us in the sunniest part of
the restaurant which was nice but not so nice. There are no blinds on the windows which means we got to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. It also meant the sun was beaming down on us and as the late morning became early afternoon, I started melting (because I had the sunniest seat). Good thing we were finished eating our marvellous meal. 

To work off all those calories we consumed, we decided to take a walk around the premises. We checked out the Old Mill Inn and Spa - fancy smancy. There's a park in the area so we went wandering down there as well. In the park, I found a 2012 dime. Nice to finally find something after this long draught.
