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.

Ice Time.

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

When we woke up this morning Kathy had a scratchy throat and really felt achey all over. Sounded like the Flu to me. Right after breakfast she took Tylenal Flue tablets and laid back down hoping it would help her feel better.

By the time lunch was over the sparkle was back in her eyes and she was feeling somewhat better so out the door we went.

What's the big rush that would cause us to leave in such a hurry when only hours before Kathy had been feeling ill. Our 10 year old grandson's junior hockey team was playing for their divisions championship. The game started promply at 1:30 p.m. immediately after a  Jersey Cover up. In junior teams they only have one colour of uniform per team. If two teams that are facing one another have jerseys that are too close to the same colour one team will have to wear a cover up. A cover up is an inexpensive way of changing the jersey colour by simply slipping it over top of their normal jersey.

That's our grandson Tyler wearing the only white helmet on his team.

Tyler also learning  the don'ts like a payback body check
Kathy was amazed at the dexterity of the kids when they'd be checked or tripped at being back on their skates within seconds of going down. Both teams were tied by the end of the first half of the game and with only minutes remaining the opposing team managed to make the winning goal.
Our grandson is second from the left in the front row.
Tyler's dad Greg is an assistant coach for the team,
he's on the far left with his hands behind his back.
Even though our grandson's team didn't win their division they were still winners. They learned the dos and don'ts of the game as well as working as a team. Isn't that what life is all about.

 After dinner Kathy was starting to feel the effects of the Tylenol wearing off.  She decided to take an early shower and head to bed to try and shake off this bug. Guess I'll just have to hold down the fort the best I can until she's back to normal.

It's about time. 


What should you call a bald teddy?

Fred bear!

  3. Hope you both have a healthy new year and avoid that flu!

    I keep hand sanitizer in the cars and wash my hands each time I get out of any public place, and swipe a damp finger across under my nose too! I also wipe the handles of the grocery carts, because there very likely was a runny nosed toddler gumming the handle right before you grabbed the cart! LOL
