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.

Appointments, Exploring and Visiting.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Last night Kathy asked if I had set the alarm so that we’d get the truck in for the oil change on time. My response was we’d get up when we got up because if I set the alarm neither of us would sleep properly because our subconscious would keep us awake. I think that’s what we’ll do from now on because we both only woke a few times and fell back to sleep simply by rolling over. I slept so well Kathy had to wake me which in itself is unusual and I felt like I was in a fog for over an hour after getting out of bed. 
Again this morning we didn’t have time to go to the computers and I needed to remove a few things from the truck. While I did that Kathy went to take care of Kelly’s kitten she is taking care of while Kelly visits her sister in Calgary, Alberta with her parents. Once we were finished with those chores we were on the road with both vehicles.
Luckily we were at the Ford dealership twenty minutes early but by the time the paperwork was finished it was right on time. Now we headed across town for Kathy’s Podiatrist appointment.
Just as we were about to turn into the parking lot Kathy saw we were nearly an hour early so we continued a few blocks down the road and went to Home Hardware. They often times have very unique things that you just can’t find in the big box stores plus the normal hardware found everywhere else. Their service is much more personable than the bigger stores as well. While walking around we also ran into Gord Mac-Endough who I also worked with for many years. Of course it was like a crash course in catching up in the short time we had and leaving with the promise of meeting again. We walked out of the store without buying a thing but now if someone were to ask us where they might find something special we can tell them.
Back at the Podiatrist office we didn’t wait too long to be called in. The assistant that we’ve known for the last few years was bubbling at the seams to tell us she had bought her first Christmas Gift the other day. With only 111 days until the big day she is still jealous that we’ve been finished our shopping and wrapping for over a month. She used our advice and said she saved herself more on the cost by buying it now than waiting for the Christmas Sales when the prices are inflated so the sale price is still higher than buying it now.
We stopped at Wendy’s and dined from their $1.89 menu where we managed to satisfy our hunger without breaking the bank. We were taking our time eating and talking when the phone rang to inform us that the truck was ready to go. Picking up the truck I was pleasantly surprised that the cost was less than the quote.
Back at the apartment I went online to research where the Cabin Air Filter was located for our truck and I was very specific as to the year and model. Following the instructions I tried finding the location of the filter that the site said and couldn’t find it. Inside I mentioned this to Kathy and she helped in researching this only to have two sites giving different descriptions and two more sites stating our year and model doesn’t have this feature. Guess I’ll just have to try back at the dealership.
For supper I grilled a couple of nice sirloin steaks on the Webber Q while Kathy cooked a nice Butternut Squash and Taco salad to go with it. Tomorrow we have someone coming to town to buy our file cabinet and then the rest of the day is ours. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Office Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes

Move Over, Leftovers I don't care how many times you put your name on that sandwich in the fridge. If it's there for more than a week, it's going in the trash. If you are a repeat offender, I might trash it after a day for the fun of listening to you complain to everyone in the office about how someone keeps stealing your lunch.

The Office Refrigerator,
