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.

Greetings and Visiting.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

As suspected after we took a nice warm shower it didn’t take long after lying down that Kathy and I fell asleep for the night. We may not have had the windows open but all the fresh air we breathed in at our Garage Sale was more than enough. 
Prarie Dog City.
This morning upon opening the curtains we were surprised to see that it had rained throughout the night. After having toast and coffee for breakfast we headed for the computers to catch up on all the reading we’ve missed for the last two days. It wasn’t too long that the phone started ringing with well wishes for Father’s Day from the kids. 
Sitting Bull Monument back in 2008.
After having toasted BLTs for lunch we were soon heading out the door to visit our daughter Rose. This turned in to a triple occasion because one it’s Father’s Day, two we celebrated DJ’s birthday early because he’ll be at his uncle’s place on that day and Rose will be leaving before the end of the month. Rose is the Commander in Chief of the local Army Cadet Corps and every summer has to go for updating and training not only cadets but reserves. When she returns at the end of the summer her friend Munaf will be leaving for two months while he returns to Iraq to visit with family and takes care of other business. DJ loved his remote control rock climber especially driving it over everyone’s feet in place of rocks.
Whenever we visit anyone we try to limit our stays to be no longer than two hours unless it is something like a family get-together such as Christmas Dinner. Back at the apartment I fired up the Weber Q to grill a couple of hamburgers while Kathy made a wonderful salad for our side dish. 
After the dishes were finished and we had watched the 6 o’clock News before heading back to our daughter Karen’s for our Sunday night visit. We sat out on the rear deck while Tyler played with Sanford in and out of the pool. Greg had crossed the border to the US earlier and arrived shortly after us. He had just imported another Harley Davidson motorcycle and he had me help him unhook the tie-downs to the trailer. It’s a beauty and he is saving a bunch of cash by buying it in the US and importing it himself. 
Of course don't all animals turn their heads just as you snap the picture?
Back at the apartment I made a few calls that I didn’t do earlier because I figured on giving family times first. My uncle Bob was glad to hear from me as I wished him a Father’s Day greeting. He was sometimes there for me when my own father couldn’t be. Next I called my friend Ernie who follows our blog daily even though he started Chemo and Radiation this week. We also exchanged Father’s Day greetings and shared notes of our ongoing medical problems. That’s what friends do isn’t it? 
Just then Kathy told me our E-mail accounts had been shut down so after this blog is posted I think I might be busy for awhile. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
