Breakfast and stuff......

8:01 am - Friday - March 30th - SoCal - 58º F, 55% humidity, wind 2 mph out of the north by northeast.....clear blue skies with a forecast high today of 88º F!

Thursday we only had one appointment.....a 9 am breakfast appointment with two of our daughter's, Sharon and Katie at Nancy's 50's Cafe in Rancho Cucamonga which gets 4 stars on 251 reviews on Yelp.  It's about a 25 minute drive from the Fontana Elks Lodge so we left around 8:30 and actually arrived there at 8:55....life is good when you hit all the green lights!



The girls arrived within minutes, and for the next 90 minutes we talked non-stop as we always do.  The coffee and food were exceptional, and the conversation was superb.  It seems just like yesterday that Sharon and Kate were in grade school and now they have families.  Where has the time gone?

By 10:30 we were back in the VW headed for the local COSTCO to pick up a few things.  As is almost always the case when we shop at COSTCO we come away with a few things not on our shopping list.  I needed some new shorts, and a new 100' hose to replace the one I use when we must use our macerator pump to dump the black tank such as we do whenever we are here at the Fontana Elks Lodge where we only have water and electric and the dump station is almost exactly 150's away from the coach.  In order to reach it with the macerator pump I need a 50' hose and a 100' hose.....the 50' foot contractor grade hose we have had for close to 10 years is still going strong, but the old 100' one has developed a lot of kinks over the last 5 years, and needed replacement.....we bought it originally when we were at the INDY 500 back in 2012 for the same purpose, but it was very cheap, and I have regretted buying it from the very beginning.  I wasn't expecting to find the hose I wanted at COSTCO (had planned to stop by Home Depot on the way home), but fortunately they were selling a contractor grade 100' non-kink hose for $24, so I snatched it up......killer deal!  

You never know what COSTCO will have clothing wise on any given visit, but on this day they had exactly the type of shorts for which I was looking, so I grabbed a couple of pairs for $12 per pair....score!

Our route home from COSTCO took us directly by the local Fontana Salvation Army and Goodwill stores, so we stopped off to do a little junking.  TLE found a nice dress, but I came away with nothing once again.....that's fine.....I need to get rid of a few articles of clothing anyway.

We were home by 12 pm, and settled in for the afternoon.  I had a few small projects out in the trailer which I worked at for a couple of hours including getting my Cannondale Bad Boy bicycle put together to do some rides on the local Pacific Electric bike path which stretches from Rialto to Claremont...about 25 miles with no street riding.

That about wraps us our Thursday.....thanks for stopping by!
