My sister Carol and brother-in-law Don were up for a few days this week. We had a great time catching up on the news and shopping the local stores in Bancroft. The weather was perfect, mild and sunny and the house was comfortable with the wood stove glowing softly throughout the night.

We stopped at McCaskie's to check out speaker bars as we have reached that stage in life where the volume needs to be enhanced if we are to hear what the TV characters are saying. Don is my "go to" tech guy when it comes to this stuff. He knows all the terminology and the questions to ask the salesman so we get the right product. Thanks for your help Don.

As you can see we left loaded down with all the parts and cables needed to make the viewing experience even better.

Once home, Don went to work connecting the cables and adjusting the components so everything worked as expected. The salesman at McCaskie's (Paul) was even kind enough to give us his cell phone number to call if we had problems. Love the support and service we get from our local merchants.

Now we are off to the Maynooth market and then out for lunch to celebrate Valentine's Day.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
