One of our weekly trips takes us to Brandon to meet the Ice Cream delivery truck. Jamie is the driver and he is super nice so each Friday I go over to McDonalds and buy him a coffee because he is usually in a rush to get moving and the Giant Tiger Store we meet him at, is slow as mollassis in January, so the coffee calms his nerves I think. Anyhow after getting his coffee at McDonalds which is right next door to where we meet him, I am walking back and I turn around and everyone in McDonalds is bailing out into the parking lot. Definitely something going on!!
A cop car shows up with lights and sirens, and I hear fire and rescue coming down the street. As I am looking over I see a puff of white from the roof exhaust and wonder what it is until I see a McDonalds employee come out the front door all covered in white fire retardant. I guess he was trying to put out the fire and lost the battle and the automatic extinguisher got him. I of course didn't get a picture of that because it all happened too fast. Anyway the whole situation was under control very quickly and the response time of the Emergency Equipment was really quick.
About the same time the Ice Cream truck showed up and guess what. Some dummy had parked his pickup in the no parking unloading lane and went in the store. Jamie just pulled right up tight to him and we stood and drank the coffee until the guy came out. Of course the guy makes a big deal because he thought Jamie had hit him. Jamie looked at him and said "I didn't hit you this time but if you don't get in your truck and move it, I will!!!" About the same time the guy noticed the no parking sign and left quite quickly. It was rather funny.
Well one of the other things I went to Brandon for was to get some 1970's style panelling to put up in part of the new addition. It was cheap and we may paint it at a later date, but for now it will work just fine.
We put some on the old green wall of the original shack. Here is the new flooring as well. We bought one long roll so we don't have any seams.
And we did the walls in the office area.
