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.

Time is flying.

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

My thoughts go out to all the procrastinaters that haven't finished their Christmas shopping let alone all the wrapping they still have to do. Warning Christmas is only four days away. That only leaves you 3 shopping days left. Do you know how much mental stress you & all the other procrastinaters are putting yourselves through.  I'm very lucky that both Kathy and I like to get the shopping over with early and don't have to put up with scenes that happened with some of the Black Friday shoppers. Since the end of October the only shopping we had to do was for each other and that has been done for awhile. Now when we go to the malls it's more just to walk around and people watching.

This morning turned out to be a slow relaxing time getting caught up on our reading and other things that fell to the wayside while we were away this past weekend. Kathy was finally able to get in touch with our friend Pauline Smith who we hadn't heard from for some time. They did some quick catching up  and shared holiday wishes.

This afternoon however was back to running like crazy. First we had to go for hair cuts so we'll be all spiffed up for the Holidays. After that we had to go do our laps around the mall. It's a good thing we are both retired or we'd never have time for ourselves.

Being that this is Wednesday we went over to our son's in Amherstburg. Unfortunately it was Mellissa's turn to put in overtime at work. She was just running in the door as we were getting ready to come home. The boys are counting down to Christmas and on their best behavior.

I know that we appreciate not having any snow but it is still nice to have some on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. After that all the memories of the hours I spent shovelling snow at our home kicks in and I can live with the lack of it.

In the meantime we can still Enjoy looking at all the Christmas lights.

It's about time.


This duck walks into a bar and asks the bartender, "Do you have any grapes?"
The bartender says, "No we only sell beer here".
The duck leaves, but the next day he walks back into the bar and asks the bartender, "Do you have any grapes?"
The bartender says, "No I told you yesterday we only sell beer, and if you ask me again I'm going to nail your beak to the bar."
So the duck leaves again, but walks back into the bar the next day and asks the bartender, "Do you have any nails?"
The bartender says "No."
The duck then asks, "Do you have any grapes?"
