Thompson

We will be leaving for Thompson, Manitoba later this morning. It is about 12 hours north of us (we are a couple of miles from the US border). Friends emailed us to say that the leaves are in full color up there already. They are a week or so ahead of us because ours are just starting to turn. Since we have to get out of the house for a couple of days this week while new linoleum is being laid in two rooms, it seemed a perfect time to head up North. We'll be back on Friday or Saturday. I'm taking the laptop but I'm not sure I'll be able to get online.
We are dropping Simba off at his real home on the way out. It will seem strange not to have Simba greet us when we come into the yard by racing around the perimeter making sure there are no monsters out there.
As for the giant bag, thanks for all the suggestions for a use for it. I have decided it is the perfect size to carry our pillows that we like to take along when we travel. We're off to test it out in a couple of hours.
Have a great week everyone!

Hope you have a wonderful trip! It's difficult to believe that your leaves are already changing! We are enjoying cooler temps...lows in the low 60s at night and highs in the mid 70s. Yay!!!!
