We got a letter from Honda about an important service update for our car. We thought we had taken care of it in Toronto, but Honda had no record it was done. We went to the dealership in Peterborough to determine if anything needed to be done. We ARE in a foreign country. Honda Canada doesn't talk to Honda America. The source of the problem came from Canadians going across the border to buy less expensive cars then bringing them back to Canada. Rules were set up to make it difficult (but not impossible) for American cars to be serviced in Canada.
Since we had zone conference scheduled for Friday, we took our p-day on Wednesday. We took another drive, this time to Roseneath to see the famous carousel (which was all covered up - it runs each Sunday afternoon, which is typical around here). We passed by a donkey preservation farm, hiked a little in Northumberland Forrest, drove all over trying to find Balls Mill, then drove through Coburg before returning home. These are actual driving tours presented by the Northumberland County tourist office.

On Thursday we helped again at the Family History Center. Sister Wheeler discovered another of her lines that came from Canada. The Lefler's were living in Canada in the late 1700's. They lived over by Brantford which is west of Toronto. They did not join the church here as far as we can tell. We needed to update the software for our iTouches which took some doing. Sister Wheeler worked on sorting out a big box of 8x10 pictures. She found a book that uses the picture sets for special lessons with stories, but was in an unusable condition. We got a call from Brother Rowan requesting we go home teaching with him in the evening. We were able to visit with with Meheffin who had been away visiting her granddaughter.
