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.

Rainy Somber Day

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

The long overdue rainfall for our area made an appearance here today. Unfortunately it fell short of the predicted forecast which even the Weather Channel stated it was far less then the norm for this time of year. Even the temperature was well below the daily average for the day making it feel more like an early Spring Day rather than nearly Summer which arrives in 19 days the Meteoroligists are worried about a Drought this year.
Around 4:00 this afternoon Kathy and I made a somber trip to our daughter Karen's to say our final goodbyes to family pet Casey. It was a very emotional moment in their home as he has always been a great protector of the family but a lovable Companion he loved to give kisses to anyone within his reach. His health and mobility had been waning over the last few years but had become critical as of late. He was loved and returned the act without question. He will be sadly missed not only by his family but anyone that had a chance to really know him.

Kathy and I noticed another new follower to our blog and would like to welcome Aspenimage. Unfortunately there is no blogger information on your profile so if you can update your profile we'll be able to plug your blog as well as reading it ourselves.  A word to anyone reading our post, the only time we do not read the newly posted blogs on our sidebar is when we are sick and then we play catchup.

It almost felt strange not running out to the trailer today to try and finish another project. Final phone calls were made and a trip to the Credit Union topped off the business part of the day. With only 2 days before the start of our trip on Sunday it became a day for making last minute preperations. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.


You might be a Redneck if

You've ever buried a firearm.


  1. Looking forward to tales from the road.

  2. Its always hard to lose a pet, even thou we knowit needs to happen. At least you always have great memories. Getting ready to hit the road finally enjoy.

  3. Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is so heartbreaking. Hugs to you.

  4. An emotional day, for sure. Travel safely.

  5. So sorry about the loss of Casey. I don't even know him and it brings tears to my eyes. I'm sure it's a very difficult time for your daughter, Kathy, but she is doing the right thing. Putting my Lizzie to sleep was one of the most difficult things I've ever had to do. I don't know if this will help Kathy, but I'll post it, anyway, in hopes that it will.

    Treat me kindly, my beloved master, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me.
    Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I should lick your hand between the blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me do.
    Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footstep falls upon my waiting ear.
    When it is cold and wet, please take me inside... for I am now a domesticated animal, no longer used to bitter elements... and I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth... though had you no home, I would rather follow you through ice and snow than rest upon the softest pillow in the warmest home in all the land... for you are my god... and I am your devoted worshiper.
    Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for although I should not reproach you were it dry, I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean food, that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side, and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger.
    And, beloved master, should I be deprived of my health or sight, do not turn me away from you. Rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me the merciful boon of eternal rest...and I will leave you knowing with the last breath I drew, my fate was ever safest in your hands.
