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.

Not a half bad day.

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Why can't they air the new to us, unseen Christmas Shows between our visits and errands during the day. Oh No! They wait to play them at 11:30 at night so you are awake watching them until 1a.m. To top it off it's one of those that grabs your attention and keeps you totally into it until the end.

Now fast forward to 9 a.m. when your eyes are saying they don't want to open but you know it is laundry day. First trying to hit your mouth through half open eyes is not a way of having your breakfast of champions. This almost makes you feel hungover but you haven't had alcohol in ages. What is going on here? We used to watch the late late shows when we were raising our families and still be up at 5 a.m. to go to work. I truly feel it is something in the broadcasting signal it can't be anything else.

Again while I was doing the laundry the Tazmanian Devil was zipping around the apartment not leaving a speck of dust in the place. So we headed out after eating lunch at 1:30 to run an errand and stop in to visit a couple of the neighbours near the old homestead. The first place we went was Louis's place. His car was home, the paper was still on the front porch but no answer. Maybe he was having one of his afternoon siestas again. After repeated attempts we walked over to Pete and Cathy's.

Pete had just gotten home so we got caught up on what's happening and gave him our speal. Next thing you know the kids are coming home from school. At first glance I though Emily was her older sister. Then when Ashley walked in I'm wondering what happen to the two kids we saw at the beginning of the summer. Time can't be flying that fast.

After a stop at the food court at the Devonshire mall we had a quick but light supper. It was actually easier to eat there because we had a variety of different things to eat without having to drive all over town for it.

From there we headed downtown to see our daughter Rose and grandson D.J. Since we won't be getting together for Christmas day the visit was a way to deliver the Christmas gifts to D.J. He made quick work of the wrapping paper for a 6 year old. Then Grampa was put to work first installing batteries in one gift  & then  assembling of another. It was funny how the little guy couldn't understand why I couldn't see this when he had it within an inch of my face. Brought back memories of many years ago.

We were home shortly before 9 p.m. and it seems my eyes are giving me trouble staying open again. I'm almost finished the post and Kathy just told me there is another new Christmas special on tonight. Until then I am just going to enjoy looking at more Christmas Lights.

It's about time.
