As a follow up to the van-almost-made-it-to-the-cottage story, my Aunt and Uncle from Kingston (who are part of that family who wants to know these things!) just happened to have an older van that they were trying to sell. Not getting any offers on it, they were willing to donate it to the cause! (that would be us).
We drove over to pick it up from them, and had a visit with cousin Brenda and Steve as well. Turns out, they were given an older jeep he didn’t need anymore as well.
I’m think’n there needs to be more Uncles and Aunts like them in the world!
