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 Gremlins Are Back.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

My apologies to our readers for last night’s post not having any pictures. After writing the blog the laptop would not upload any pictures no matter what I did so out of frustration I had to pack it in. No amount of playing with it this evening would help so I spent nearly an hour and a half uploading all the pictures of our trip onto my PC and then the keyboard stopped working so it had to be rebooted in order to get rid of its gremlins. 
San Antonio, Texas area.
We seem to be sleeping in later now that we’re back in the apartment but that is partly due to the fact that we aren’t sleeping as soundly through the nights. After breakfast Kathy continued rearranging some of her books that she uses when we travel. Myself I was on the phone with the surgeon’s office verifying information about my upcoming surgery. I no sooner hung up with them and our insurance company claim adjuster was calling to get more information about the damage to our trailer caused by the blowout.

I had also been trying to find a local transmission shop that could have a look at Kathy’s car. Lately when you would apply the brakes it felt like it had a bad rotor but when the brakes were checked it was discovered that the bearing into the transfer case had created an oval shaped opening in the side of the transmission.

Once we had eaten our lunch we brought the car over to the transmission shop so they could check it out. Once they had it on the hoist they saw that it was the main housing that was worn and not the less expensive tailstock. Since the car is in good shape otherwise the cost of the rebuilt transmission is warranted. It will be a few days before we get the car back so we went to Canadian Tire for a few supplies before going to the grocery store with the same thought in mind before heading home.

It was nearly 5:00 by the time we got everything unloaded and in the apartment but Kathy had planned for that by taking some food from the freezer before we had left earlier in the afternoon. I fired up our new Weber 120 that we bought while we were down south for the apartment and started barbecuing a couple of nice steaks. Kathy made a nice Greek salad with feta cheese and black olives before microwaving a couple of nice sweet potatoes. We had finished eating the salad by the time the steaks were ready but it all added up to another satisfying meal.

Tomorrow the weather is supposed to be sunny and close to 60 so that should make for an interesting day. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Always something to be done, and car problems are no fun for sure. Those steaks sure sound good!
