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.

Errands, Chores and Great Gift.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Once again Kathy and I were pleased with the decision to sleep with the window slightly ajar last night. We actually felt refreshed and were both up before 8:00 this morning. A simple bowl of cereal and a coffee was more than enough to satisfy our appetites and helped us to be out the door shortly after 9:00. 
In less than ten minutes we were arriving at Windsor Gas and Diesel to drop the truck off for its annual safety check. Our friend Don has been the only mechanic that we have ever trusted working on our truck and when he left the dealership so did our business. He also knows we like to keep the truck in top shape so he knows it will easily pass the safety. Kathy had followed me in the car so we’d be able to run another errand on our way home. The way the sun was shining we were almost tempted to go exploring the county just for a relaxing ride. 
Back at the apartment there were a number of things that I needed to catch up on. Some of the flashlights we keep for emergency use in the apartment had weak batteries that needed replacing. Next I had to remove a couple of Kathy’s medications from her pill daucet for the next few days because of the medical test she is having done on Wednesday. 
Last night just before we left our daughter’s we were talking about the Garage Sale we are all getting together on next month. Greg suggested selling a barbecue light someone gave him that doesn’t fit his big barbecue. When he showed it to me it said Weber on the box and that it fit the Weber Q 100 & 200 series units. When I mentioned it would fit our Weber Q 120 he told me to take it. That turned into my third chore at the apartment today. This unit even turns off when you close the lid and turns back on when the lid is opened. Thanks Greg it will definitely come in handy for some after dark grilling. 
Kathy is continuing her research of things that we’ll be doing when we go to Florida next winter. She is very frugal when it comes to taking tours or other things and when one company that is charging less for a better package is getting better reviews than the competition guess which one gets marked in her book.  
I went back to cleaning my photo files on the computer and went back to the same folder that I last worked on. Today I had viewed over fifteen hundred photos, had to rotate about a third of them and deleted over a hundred. By the time supper rolled around I had cleared another one-point-two gigabytes of storage off the hard drive.  
While we enjoyed pancakes with mixed berries and whipped cream on them for supper we noticed the parking lot through our balcony doors was starting to appear wet and the temperature was dropping as well. Tomorrow is another day! Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Office Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes

Drink Up, No Cold Storage There's a machine just down the hall with lots of cold beverages. Please get your bottles of water and pop out of the fridge. If you are wondering why some of them disappeared occasionally now you know. I was thirsty. That goes for you too, oversized-Brita-pitcher lady.

The Office Refrigerator,


  1. What a cool idea to have a light for your grill. Even though most of the grilling is during the daylight hours, I am sure it will come in very handy. Enjoy

  2. I like the idea of a light on the grill . . . it'll especially come in handy for wintertime grilling in Florida next year, huh??!!
