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.

Really Laid Back Day

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We are still having our restless night problems but do manage to sleep enough to get us partially through the day. After that a SNAP ( Short Nap ) seems to get us over the daily hump so we can make it until bedtime. It's also strange that when one of us has hardly any sleep the other seems to do okay, then the next night seems reversed.

We were supposed to have someone from the apartment company come and inspect our Balcony Rail to be certain it is still safe. They put a letter in your mail box to inform you of those things 48 hours ahead so you won't be shocked about an unannounced knock on your door. Nobody showed up between the times of 8 am and 4 pm so we can expect another of those letters soon. It is strange but something as simple as that will play in the back of the mind and add to the sleeplessness. Can't wait to be back on the road because that problem becomes a rariety and not the norm.

I had corresponded with Ivan from Roadtrip 2012 about a problem he was having charging the controller for his small Helicopter he uses for taking pictures. He is still able to use it at this time but doesn't think the problem has been fixed. I just hope for his sake it does not end in a crash and burn of his helicopter.

In recent posts people have been commenting on the beautiful pictures of our past travels and flowers. I have to be honest that those pictures were all taken with an HP 735 point and shoot camera, but it did make for great memories. I prefer to post most pictures unedited except the Chrismas shots where I simply crop them. I try not to post the same picture more than once but have messed up and reposted 4 without realizing I had done so. Now I have found a way to mark them so as only to use them the one time. Please don't feel like the pictures will stop in the near future as there are thousands more to use and many future shots to come.

I made an appointment with Mor/ryde to have their new Escape Ladder installed on our trailer when we are around the Elkart area in June. Heaven forbid that we should ever have to use it in case of a fire but something like this will surely increase our chances of survival.

This evening Kathy and I went for our weekly visit with our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa, but because Kathy had been busy making more of her home-made Date cookies so tonight we brought the snacks. Well you guessed it they received rave reviews and requests for more. By the time we got home there was actually a dusting of snow on the cars in the parking lot.

We'll have to start making plans for getting the trailer ready for our upcoming trips and modifications. We can start that on the first day of Spring which starts in 55 days. Enjoy!

It's about time.

We've got a drink named after you.
