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.

Another Busy Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Don’t know how we managed to be up so late last night. The time seemed to fly. It rained all the way from Amherstburg where we visited with Kevin and Melissa to Tecumseh where we live. By the time we wrote the post and got it online it just took forever with difficulty posting pictures.
When my head hit the pillow I only woke once throughout the night and woke up raring to go this morning which is a first in over a week. Kathy on the other hand couldn’t stop thinking of things we’ve done, things we need to do and unimportant things that just kept her awake most of the night for no reason. 

After our breakfast of Ego Waffles and coffee we started taking note of what food stocks we had in the freezer and pantry. Kathy then started making her shopping list to use when we’d later go to the grocery store. 

Our first stop was at the area polling station. In the province of Ontario there were five By-Elections being held due to a number of Provincial Members of Parliament resigning their seats in the last six months and our area was one of those. It didn’t take long for both Kathy and I to cast our vote but when we went to leave the polling station parking lot had to wait for the EMS and Fire Rescue to go by. At the very next corner someone driving a mini-van tried making a left turn while running a red light. It only took another vehicle coming through the intersection on a green light to dump the van onto its side across the other side of the road. It didn’t appear there were any major injuries. 

Next Stop was at VitalAire where I had to pick up my CPAP mask. When we were there the other day it had not arrived yet so they called just before 5:00 last evening to say come and pick it up. 

We were in need of some spending money if by chance we needed to eat out so our next stop was at the Credit Union where I was in and out within five minutes while Kathy waited in the car. I had just walked in the door when Kathy had a visitor. Our friend and Member of Federal Government Joe Comartin had spotted Kathy and they were into a good conversation. When Joe asked what we were up to and we started telling him of our trips he said we were making him jealous. We talked for nearly twenty minutes out in the parking lot before we said our good-byes because Joe remembered he had an appointment that he needed to get to. 

For the next hour we walked around the Zehr’s grocery store scratching item after item from our shopping list. Even though the store was having all kinds of specials if it wasn’t on that list we resisted the urge and just went with what we needed. When we left our shopping cart was amazingly heavy but our wallets were extremely light. It didn’t take us nearly as long to put our purchases away at the apartment then it was to find them. 

After lunch we headed back to Guardian Storage and the trailer where we had to open the slides to be able to remove the main television. We went to Crescent Television to have them check it. For some reason if we run this television on the antenna it works great but if we run it on cable in the campgrounds we are parked in we have only one snowy channel. The other three televisions in the trailer work great on cable or antenna. The service manager at Crescent recommended we take it to someone’s home so we could test it because for them to put it on the test bench would cost us up front. 

So now with the television in the back seat of the truck we’ll have to visit one of our kids to see if we can test it there. For supper tonight we grilled some Hulka that our friends Vera and Bill had given to us some time back on the Weber Q and it’s still just as good as before. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. When I was a kid, my father had a TV repair business for awhile. Regularly,folks would bring in a TV that was not working. We plugged it in for testing and it worked fine. When there was a charge for the test, they were unhappy. It is always best to make sure it actually is the TV that has the problem first:)
