One big change in our lives was the purchase of CJ's Snack Shack and Mini Golf in Rivers Provincial Park. Sue wanted something to do for the summer while we were home and we knew we would be living full time in the Ponderosa, so thought this would be a perfect fit due to the fact it is in a campground setting. We thought about a name, and decided that this would be a great place for our grandchildren to come and visit Grampa and Gramma and talk them into giving them free ice cream. We do have one grandchild who is in heaven and won't be able to physically visit us here, so we decided we would name the business after him so he would also be a part of it. Thus the name CJ's after our angel, Clayton James Green.
We began operation of the business in mid May and were open 7 days a week, 12 hours a day until mid September. We are happy to say that not only was the business a success, but as a bonus, we met and made friends with a lot of really nice people in our daily operations. We are looking forward to being back there again this summer, so if you are planning a trip to Manitoba, please stop by for an ice cream.
The other big change in our life in 2016 was the sale of our house. Although we have been living in our motorhome for the most part since May of 2015, we still parked it at "home". In September we passed our home on to a nice young couple who I'm sure will enjoy making memories there. In order to peruse the full time RV living, we just could no longer have a house that would sit empty for the most of the year. We will miss it, but our memories will allow us to visit in our minds anytime we want. We are excited to see any changes the new owners will make.
