OLd Fort Erie GRASS FIRE fort erie fire department station crew using water and chemicals to put it out

the idea girl says

careless smoker tosses a cigarette and after weeks of dry weather, no rain, it causes a grass fire right behind OLD FORT ERIE. –911 emergency call —

Thank god there wasn’t more damage done. The grass is all BLACK and BURNT now by the bench that overlooks the Niagara River and Lake Erie VIEWING

We were there to enjoy some quiet time and go for  a walk down the path to the water and put our feet in to cool off…

Crystal Beach Fire Department Rescue Lake Erie Swimming Team 20 July 2016 Exercise

the idea girl says

we went for a drive down to the Palmwood HOtel and there was a boat in the water with several firemen and women from the Station that’s down here in Crystal Beach Ontario Canada.

They were doing some drowning victim exercises and learning how to throw out a raft to someone in the waters of Lake Erie.

Harry’s Happy 50th Birthday Coloring Sunflower Sunshine for Linda Randall Chisholm I’ll CHERISH THIS!

the idea girl says

Harry, instead of buying a boring Birthday Card, made me this lovely colored picture of a sunflower smiling up at the SUN in the sky.

Not only do I love FLOWERS (this is a cheaper way to have them without it costing any money) but the TIME it takes to color so nicely as he does is something I will CHERISH forever!

My romantic hubby gave me something I’ll never forget for my 50th Birthday – a bit of himself!

Harold Birthday Balloons Linda’s 50th Party Free from OLD NAVY Pen Centre St Catharines ONT CanadaI

the idea girl says

You see I needed balloons to decorate the house for my 50th Birthday party celebration. So I went to my favorite stomping grounds – Pen Centre in St Catharines Ontario Canada to go and buy some balloons at Dollarama.

Then I notice kids walking around the mall with these lovely “old navy” balloons.

So we go to OLD NAVY and I explain I need balloons for my 50th birthday party and could I have some, if I walk around the mall with them for awhile?

fREE advertising for them and free balloons for me…🙂

It saved me a few bucks and I had fun… I should have taken pictures of the expressions on people’s faces as we walked around the mall with a handful of balloons

I know we peaked their curiosity, because it had the same effect on me.

They were having a $1 sale that day too. I bought white flip flops for harry for a buck. Can’t go wrong when they usually are $15 each!

so I snuck a picture without harry knowing as I went to the washrooms… LOL
