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.

Getting Back To Normal?

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Talking about getting back to normal after having surgery would be an understatement. We barely made it through the 11 o’clock News last night before falling asleep. By 2:00 I was wide awake with my mind racing about this and that and no matter how hard I tried those thoughts would not go away. My back started to bother me so by 3:30 I was sitting at the computer with the hope I’d get tired. NOT! At 5:00 I sat in the recliner in the living room looking out the balcony doors at nothing in particular and seeing only the odd set of headlights of vehicles passing occasionally by on the expressway a half mile away. Around 6:30 my eyes were actually starting to feel heavy so I lay back in bed only to be wide awake by 8:30. 
I no sooner started making our morning coffee and Kathy was awake and right behind me. We were in awe as we watched footage on the Weather Channel of flooding brought on by heavy rain systems stalled over the mountains taking place in the prairie provinces of Canada. The report is that this is the worst flooding that area has ever experienced. Wasn’t it just over a month ago that our neighbors south of the border were going through almost the same problems from the snow melt and tropical storm Andrea.  
We spent most of the day on the computers. I continue to work on recording our medical appointments on a spreadsheet that I have created. This will help us in the future if we have any problems while we are travelling. 
We are presently experiencing warm temperatures that combined with the high humidity feels well above the century mark in our area. Kathy decided it was too hot to barbecue or cook anything inside so we ate supper out at the Swiss Chalet. We were both well satisfied but not stuffed when we walked out their door. 
We stopped at our daughter’s house around the corner for our Sunday night visit. Even though they had the Air Conditioner running they were out on the deck by the pool. Surprisingly the part of the deck that was in the shade felt cool as there was a pleasant breeze blowing through. 
Back at our apartment we had another surprise. The electrical power was down in parts of the building including our apartment. Using our cell phone to call the building management they had an electrician checking our panel less than five minutes after I called. Within another ten minutes the power came on. That was a good thing because the Heatindex was still showing above the hundred degree mark and without the Air Conditioner it could have been a real problem. 
Kathy and I would like to welcome two new blog followers to our site. The first is grammaSandi. Sandi Lierley has a blog post by the name of RV GRAMMA but she hasn’t written any posts to date. We’ll be keeping an eye on it and let you know when she starts posting. Our second follower is SANDI with a link to a site called Girlfriend12step. Unfortunately the explorer comes up saying it’s an incorrect address so we can’t give you any more details at this time. We can only hope that they enjoy our post and we can keep their interest aroused enough to follow us on our travels. 
We are expecting more hot temperatures in the area for the rest of the week but we still have a bunch of things to keep us busy. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


What do you call a guy with no arms and no legs in the water?



  1. Glad your feeling better!

    Stay cool!

  2. Hot and humid and no AC is not a very good combo:(

  3. The flooding in Canada is horrible. Hope all gets back to normal very quickly.
