It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Big change in the weather.

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

The title of this blog says it all. Yesterday we worked on Kevin's Christmas display wearing only T-shirts to light sweaters. Today there was a bitter north-west wind. I had on a warm hoody and moderate weather work jacket. I sure wish I'd had my winter parka.

Luckily with yesterdays warmer weather, we had installed all the lights in the tree, on the house, Santa's team and the candy cane fence. Today was going to be easy, just finish wiring everything and hook-up the controllers. With the bitting wind, doing the fine tuning with no gloves was very difficult.

Kathy wanted to document us at work but was too frozen to come outside. She cheated and caught a behind the scenes view, of  Kevin and I outside playing with our toys.

In the end we were finished just before our grandsons Cameron and Matthew got home from school. Kathy and I left so the boys could work on their homework.

We went browsing at the local Canadian Tire store. We then went out for dinner at our favourite restaurant in Amherstburg a place called Maria's. We were trying to kill a bit of time, so we could go back and take pictures after dark. We still had more time till dark so we stopped in at the local Wal-mart. Now we have our new 2012 Rand McNally road atlas, ready for when the wheels start rolling in the spring.

The lights at Kevin and Missy's house were no disappointment and helped us easily find their home.

Just in case you can't find they're house, they'll leave the lights on for you.

The igloo has a red flouresent spotlight that makes it look yellow.

Now Kevin can easily maintain their display and the Grandsons are eagerly awaiting the big day.

It's about time.


  1. great job on the Christmas decorations!!!

  2. excellent job on the decorating...outside decorations just make christmas that much more exciting. There was a day we used to trim up the outside, I think I was as excited as the kids. Rick used to tell everyone the power company used to send us 'thank you ' cards at christmas..but it was sure worth it...
