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.

Better Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Even with a restless night of sleep it is amazing what twenty-four hours can do in one’s life. From feeling only so-so to feeling like nothing happened. From feeling well fed on a glass of water to being hungry on a reasonably sized meal. (I’m going to have to work on that one.)
Right after breakfast we were back on the computers this morning checking our E-mail and reading the blogs we follow. I still had more to read while Kathy started doing her rendition of the Tazmanian Devil going through the apartment cleaning it from top to bottom in no time.
Last night after supper Jenna our hair stylist had called with the news that yesterday all the employees of the Fantastic Sam’s hair cutting shops were given their walking papers as the chain was declaring bankruptcy. In Canada that means the company is done never to come back unlike the U.S. where it allows the company time to seek protection from their creditors and time to get back on its feet.
The economy has not rebounded as much as many people believe it has and there are still companies closing their doors. So shortly after we were finished doing our lunch dishes we headed out to find the location of where our hairstylist was relocating to. In her words she had rented a chair in another shop just down the road from the location she had been working at.
Once we found where we needed to go the next time we need our hair cuts done we needed to go to the Bulk Food store to pick up some baking supplies and ended up with a few little treats as well.
Another quick stop was made to buy a lottery ticket for tonight’s lotto Max draw. Unlike the lotteries in the U.S our lotteries are tax free. Tonight’s draw is worth 50 Million Dollars with an additional 50 one million dollar prizes. Kathy and I are not big at buying tickets of this sort but even a modest win would help make things easier and maybe allow us more freedom to travel and you can’t win if you don’t have a ticket so now for $6.00 we have a chance.
Christmas is now only 59 days away which means we are a little over 10 weeks away from hitting the road on our next adventure. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Freddie: "Is it true in some parts of Africa a man

Does not know his wife until he marries her?"

Dad: "That happens in most countries son."


  1. They keep telling me it only takes one ticket to win, I just wish it wasn't always in another persons hand.
