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.

Life Between Adventures

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.
Waking up at 8:00 this morning felt strange. Even though I’m sleeping later I don’t feel as rested as when we’re sleeping in the trailer. My mind was probably on Alert Mode about getting up on time with knowing I had an appointment at the Blood Donor Clinic this morning.
After enjoying a good breakfast with Kathy I arrived with time to spare. After the usual questions and answer screening it wasn’t long before I was hooked up for my 79th donation. The only thing on the televisions was the Olympic Games. Sorry not much of a Sports fan but that’s another story.
I was home by 11:00 and continued working on my data entries for the trip until noon. Kathy couldn’t make the fuel cost balance with my books because she was going by the total on a few receipts that had additional purchases along with the fuel. After finishing lunch and critiquing names of some fuel locations I started making my printouts.
Travelling with friends in our trailer was much different than travelling with friends who have their own trailer. It did make for  increasing the bond of friendship and learning to share the workload as Kathy and I were reminded our guests were more than able to do. It also gave time to learning even more personal things about one another that we didn’t know before. We hope to be able to do it again in the future not only with Bill and Vera but other close family and friends.
The only down side to that trip was when it came to writing the blog. Even though they had their own bedroom in the trailer I felt like I was keeping them awake when I would work beyond their bedtime in the main living area at night.
The bright side was they could read the blog before it was posted and that their family and friends started calling them Gypsies because of our shared travels. LOL! Another bright spot is that my photo gallery has now increased by nearly 3,000 photos which will definitely keep many of you that read our post wanting to get on the road to start enjoying your own adventures. 
Another drawback to being on the road is that you don’t always have time to take note that your post has new followers. Kathy and I would like to welcome Rick Ledtje and Donna Quick as new followers. Unfortunately neither of them have any blogger information to pass along but if he did we’d surely be following it.
We’d also like to welcome Dennis Haddix from Makarios RV. Dennis and his wife are commercial dealers I have on our sidebar that sells all kinds of RV related merchandise and I believe he also ships things around the country.
Our latest blog followers are Lee Anna and Ed Tucker who started a blog called the Traveling Tuckers. They are just starting in the blogging arena and are looking at Full-Timing in the near future. Again Kathy and I want to thank all of you for following our blog.
While we were away last week our daughter Karen e-mailed us with the announcement that we had a new grandson. So after supper last night we went over to her house to be formally introduced. At nine weeks old he is a bundle of unrestrainable energy. Meet Sanford Bourdeau our new addition to the family.
Sanford Bourdeau
We hate to disappoint you but now we have to do everyday normal things that everyone has to do but we’ll be off to our next short adventure in 6 more days. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.
