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.

Great Visiting Day

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Something really strange happened last night. Kathy and I both had a decent night of sleep. I was still up shortly after 7:30 and Kathy actually slept until after 8:00 this morning. After a simple breakfast of toast and coffee we did our morning routine of reading blogs and E-mail on the computers. 
A trip with Bill and Vera through South Dakota last summer.

Kathy kept researching while I took my morning shower and shave because we were going out for lunch with Bill and Vera at the Red Lobster. I was ready with time to spare so I once again started going through Duplicate Photo Folders and cleaning out unclear blurry pictures. By the time we were leaving to meet Bill and Vera I had cleared out another half a gig of storage on the hard drive of my PC.
We arrived fifteen minutes early to a nearly empty parking lot but were surprise to see people already leaving carrying take home food boxes. We were enjoying the light breeze that helped us keep comfortable from the rays of the sun. When Bill and Vera arrived they were apologetic about being stopped by a train for nearly ten minutes on Jefferson Blvd.

Once we were seated and our orders placed we were busy exchanging information about our trip to Florida and everything we did for the three and a half months we were down there. They filled us in with what has been happening on their home-front and that Bill was in the hospital with a severe case of pneumonia and the medications the doctors used to treat that caused his Diabetes to go out of balance that they are still trying to get back under control. The conversation never stopped throughout the meal and even after we had finished the meal. Bill and Vera picked up the tab saying it was our birthday gifts. Thank You Bill and Vera for a delicious meal and especially the fantastic company.

Once we were back at the apartment Kathy went back to her research while I returned to cleaning out more duplicate pictures until it was time for supper. Since we had eaten a filling meal at lunch Kathy and I decided to have a bowl of soup for supper. We talked of our lunch time visit with Bill and Vera as we ate to make our meal last a little longer. Just as we were finishing up the phone rang and it was our daughter Karen. She had forgotten to invite us for hamburgers for supper tonight and Greg was just cooking them on the grill. 
Sunday evenings is our normal weekly visit time with Karen’s family so we just had to leave earlier than planned. The bonus was enjoying a wonderfully tasty hamburger with onion rings and beautifully mixed salad. After an enjoyable visit and some play time with Sanford we headed for home. 
Sanford enjoyed playing ball outside.

Birds are making use of the pool before the kids do.
Checking the space available just before I started writing this post I noted that I cleared out over four Gigs off the hard-drive since I started getting rid of STUFF on it. Tomorrow I have appointments and then we’ll see what we’ll be getting into. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Because all the keys are inside.
