We continue to enjoy our time with Hope,Shawn,Colt,Cade and the animals Katy,Rocky and Casey.
This month has also given us time to do updates and repairs on the iHome. John and Shawn installed our new Whirlpool Convection oven, Hope gave us a small crockpot and I bought a new 4 slice toaster. So no excuses for eating out and not trying new recipes.
There is an oven in the Motorhome, but have only used it twice..too difficult to light. John also installed the 3 alarm devices and a repeater for WI-FI. This should reduce our Verizon bill. So many campgrounds have Wi-Fi, but accessibility is very faint.
We also had the new windshield installed.
Will miss the beautiful snowcapped mountain views from our site next to the house. Sure has made it convenient to camp in their driveway. Hope and I trade off on meal preparation. She is definitely a much better cook than I. Have enjoyed fresh vegetables from their garden and eggs straight from the hen. There is a difference from fresh and store bought.

The grandsons had their last football games last week and looking forward to baseball in a few months. When we return in the Spring will get to attend these games.We took them to the Smith Rock Pumpkin Patch. They were most interested in the maze. There is a beautiful view of Smith Rock from the farm. It is a rock climber's and hiking haven.

Took the iHome into Ford for oil change,transmission service. Very reasonable..$185.00. We have used them before and feel confident in their service. Also went by Les Schwab for tire check. They are good for another year at least. Have confidence in their service and advice. Too bad they aren't nationwide.
We go over to Salem 3 November to get together with friends and med appointments. Our next journey will take us to California, Nevada back to Oregon before touring Western Canada.
