It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Getting There

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

This morning we were on the road at the same time as rush hour traffic without even turning on the computers. Stopped at the sub shop again for our lunchtime sandwiches.

We arrived in Amherstburg shortly after nine. We had brought the laptop with us so Kathy could continue researching different foods for our trip this year to Wyoming. Both Kathy and Bill are Diabetic and she wants to make different dishes geared towards such but also Bill's ethnic background.

I headed out to the garage to find Kevin had already finished grinding the pieces of metal that we had cut yesterday. I explained what pieces needed drilling and went back outside to finish cutting and bevelling the rest of the metal needed for the trailer project. We completed the noisey work before the assembly work because I didn't want to bother Cameron who has very sensitive hearing. He can hear you whispering from across the room so you can imagine what noisey tools sound like to him.

First thing after lunch we finished making the new clothing drawers for the rear bedroom in the trailer to replace the media drawers. Kevin went to pick the boys up at school shortly after three while I put the wood working tools away. By the time he returned I was starting to lay things out to be tacked together for the Battery Storage Racks for the trailer. Kathy had ordered pizza for everyone for a 5:30 supper and I had everything tacked together.

The way my back was bothering me I called it a day and can finish up tomorrow. Many people would question why it's taking so long? One we travel from Tecumseh to Amherstburg each day which is twenty-five miles each way. Second this is only a garage we are working in not a shop set up for this kind of work. Three we try not to impose too much on Kevin and Melissa's family because they do have their own lives to live as well.

Shoeless Joe from Travels with John and Judy Bell  from Travels with Emma commented on yesterday's post that Kathy had taken some nice pictures of spring. She unfortunately didn't think they were good until Melissa told her at supper how good they were but unfortunately she didn't take anymore today. She promises she'll try her best tomorrow.

Kevin and Sheryl from Lovin Our Life commented about watching my back as Sheryl also knows what it's like. Thanks for the concern but I have had back problems going on 5 years now and the last two years of my carreer Chiropractors and I were becoming friends. It is something that will haunt us for the rest of our lives.

Since we started new countdowns yesterday for those of you that are interested it is 91 days until Summer but it's only 74 days until Kathy and I leave on our first road trip for this year. Be Safe and Enjoy!
Kathy took the pictures of the flowers and would like to know if anyone knows what they are?

It's about time.


You might be a Redneck if

Your favourite restaurant

also has a truck wash.


  1. Glad you are having great weather there. And no need to rush your project, what's the hurry?

  2. Hard to tell from the angle but maybe your flower is a red emperor tulip?

  3. My guess.. pretty flowers?

    Love the shots you intersperse in your blog from previous trips. Sure enjoy the ones of the Grand Canyon especially--- brings me back in my mind each time I see one of yours on your blog!
