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.

Shopping, Stopping and Visiting

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Kathy always tells me how the sound of rain makes her feel like closing her eyes and going to sleep. Well last night it never stopped raining but she barely got five hours of sleep. I only woke when I was turning over and went right back to sleep. Looking outside this morning it was still raining as we had breakfast and definitely looked like the day was going to be a loss like yesterday so we made a list of places we needed to go. 
After eating another light breakfast of a bran muffin and coffee we were out the door by 10:00 and heading for my surgeon’s office. They had called me on Friday to pick up a form for my blood test on Monday. I dropped Kathy at the city market next door while I went to the office only to find it locked with no one inside. The sign next to the door showed they were open Monday to Friday 8:00 am. until 4:00 pm. Since they had called me saying the test needed to be done before a CAT Scan next week I wasn’t a Happy Camper. I’ll definitely be back there early in the morning asking about their office hours.
Since we were only a few blocks from the transmission shop where the car is we stopped in to see if there was any progress. The old trany was tore apart on the bench with the new one next to it about to go in. They showed us how badly it was worn but they also had left the rotors and calipers in place to show us how badly they were worn. When the job is completed they said the car will be as good as new because the car is in good shape other than this problem.
Heading towards home we stopped at Canadian Tire because I was looking for a heavy rubber belt type material for the project that I’m working on. They had nothing there but as I was about to leave I walked past the counter with mud flaps on it. Since one of our mud flaps got torn off the rear dually tires I have exactly the material I need right in the back of the truck. We also looked for a quick fold Gazebo while there but they had a poor selection so we thought we’d go look at Walmart.  
It was lunch time so we made a run for the border and stopped at Taco Bell for a couple of tacos each before continuing on our quest. We did manage to find what we wanted in a Gazebo at a reasonable price and decent quality at Walmart.

Since we haven’t seen our good friends Kathie and Ross since we celebrated an early Christmas with them in December we swung by to say hello. There was a lot to get caught up on including Ross being suddenly scheduled for a Hernia operation as well. Just about an hour later we said our see you folks later to them and headed home. 

Kathy wanted to finish transplanting her second plant to a larger container. We had expected to have to possibly break the old container off but that wasn’t necessary and the job was done fairly quickly. Looking outside the sun was shining with a cool breeze and the pavement was practically dry.  
With us watching not to overeat since we’ve gotten home from Florida and not letting things spoil that our supper for the night was Strawberry covered Egos. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
