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.

The Effects of Sandy

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

The lights in the parking lot showed the rain and leaves flying by the windows as if they had been launched off a catapult. Even after we went to bed the windows sounded like they were being used as drums. Of course that meant that our sleep was constantly interrupted by the loud noises throughout the night.
When we awoke this morning it was no longer raining and the wind had slowed to a light breeze. Looking out the window at the cloud filled sky it didn’t look any more peaceful than it had last night before dark. The difference was that these clouds contained much cooler air. People walking their dogs were bundled in winter coats even though the temperature was above freezing.
With us sleeping late did not help us to feel any more rested. As we ate our breakfast and watched the news we were witness to the destruction left behind by hurricane Sandy. The force of her winds causing major flooding, toppling trees across wires that started fires that were fanned by the wind and destroying complete neighborhoods. No matter what precautions had been taken to protect these landmarks it was all in vain. Now all that can be done is to clean up and rebuild.
Today as we worked on our computers I asked a question about our upcoming trip down south in January. The next thing you know we were both looking up different things.
As most RVers say that their plans are written in Jello so they stay flexible. Well our plans just changed moving our departure date ahead. This would put us in the State of Florida earlier. That would allow us to attend a few events that happen at the end of the month without having to really rush.
Hopefully we’ll sleep better tonight knowing that Christmas is now only 55 days away. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Why did the man take a pencil to bed?

 To draw the curtains!

I'd tell you another joke about a pencil,

 but it doesn't have a point!
