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.

Getting Closer

Our Location Today Tecumseh, Ontrio, Canada

Just like everyone else we all have to go through our yearly checkups with our doctors. Part of those checkups include going for blood tests before actually going to see the doctor face to face. Today was my day of having to get up early and driving across town in order to beat the rush of others thinking the same way.
I am kind of a cheater though because I see my family doctor plus a specialist that both require almost identical blood tests so I book their appointments close together and only need one blood test to be done. This way I save my blood for something better. Giving the Gift of Life as a blood donar.
By 8:00 am I was on my way to grab a bite of breakfast and then to have an oil change done on the truck. Since it is a diesel engine it takes a little longer to do because it uses different and more oil then a gas engine but it is worth the reliability in protecting this investment.
After running into another retiree from the plant we worked in until it closed we compared notes of how life was treating us and what our plans are for the future. It seemed that time just flew by and the next thing I knew my name was being called that the truck was good to go.
Another quick errand was run on the way home. By the time I arrived home it was lunch and Kathy was ready for that with a nice toasted turkey sandwich and a salad.
While I was away this morning Kathy had helped me out by sorting and pretreating the laundry so that was my job this afternoon. Kathy continued dusting and cleaning the apartment so it will be done before we leave next week. We also decided to wait to wash and clean the truck. Since our area is still under a heat advisory with the chance of rain tomorrow. Why do the same job twice?
Ruth from Five Just Rolling Down the Road asked if we noticed any difference in towing our trailer with the wind deflector on our truck? When we had the older trailer there was about a two mile per gallon difference with the deflector. The front of the older trailer was more boxy or square in construction. On our new trailer we would probably get the same mileage because the front of the trailer is very aerodynamic in design. The advantage of the deflector now is keeping the dead bugs off the front of the trailer. It does not keep all the bugs off but there are very few even after a long trip. It is easier cleaning the deflector in a flat position then balancing on a ladder to scrub the front of the trailer.
Kathy and I would like to welcome a few new followers to our blog post. Kathy used to work for a company called Canadian Fence here in Windsor before she retired. Since they found out we are traveling they are very happy for us and have been keeping an eye on our trips by reading the blog. Another new follower we'd like to welcome is a follower called Sandi but there is no personal blog information that we could give a heads-up to and follow ourselves.
We are now less then 4 days to being on the road for our next adventure and we hope you'll be able to follow along for the ride/ Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.
