My "famous/infamous" To Do List

If you are a Facebook friend you have heard me speak of my dreadful to do list many many many times.  I have this "rule" that won't allow me to carry forward tasks.  I must leave them on the date they were due to be done.  So IN MY WORLD right now it is Friday, November 19th 20th.  I have a long way to go if I am going to be ready for Christmas!!

A day out . . .

Hal is home for a few days after a 14 day run.  My job, as I see it, is to get him moving around after spending so many days behind the wheel of his truck.  There were no local letterboxes to find in the short amount of time we had today before we had to pick up our "favourite" grandson.  Don't worry, I tell each of my grandsons that they are my favourite . . . LOL . . .

No letterboxes?  No worries.  We decided to try some other hobbies.  We found our first geocache today using a borrowed GPS.  Yes, we will be looking for advice on what type of hand-held GPS we should buy.
Salt Creek Cemetery


There were no "cistes" close to home but we will try that out next time we have a free weekend.

We joined the geodashing website and found coordinates nearby to check out.  We found GDAO-COAT near Aylmer, ON.

We joined Markeroni which gave me the opportunity to play with my camera.  We logged in Alma College, Jumbo, The Hon. Mitch Hepburn, Salt Creek Cemetery and The Town of Aylmer.




Alma College
And we also tried Waymarking.com.  We visited Jumbo, Barwick Street Bridge, Progression of Town and Rail, Hon. Mitchell F. Hepburn, and Alma College.

Top Movies of All Time according to IMDB ~ #17 Goodfellas (1990)

Apparently I love gangster movies.  Of course this another one that was shot back in the day when we didn't have to see all the gory...
