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.

Busy Wandering Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Once again we slept soundly last night but I was wide awake by 7:00 and Kathy was up before 8:00. Even though I had been on a murderous campaign of killing the Yellow Jackets inside our apartment yesterday I was back at it right after breakfast. With the fifteen that I killed this morning that brings the total to over four dozen. I was back down to the office this morning trying to make them aware that even though they thought they had fixed the problem by attacking the nest in the other apartment it has only driven more of them into our’s. 

Yesterday when I had helped Kathy with some research for our 2014-2015 winter trip the easiest thing I could do was copy the file to word. The only problem is that the file spread itself out covering a 135 pages so what I was doing after returning from the office was to compress it into a readable form. I now have it down to just under 70 pages but by the time I get it compressed it should be down to about 12 pages. 

Kathy’s dentist appointment was early today so we had to be in Amherstburg before 2:00 this afternoon. Everything went well and by 2:30 we were ready to go. Since we didn’t have the truck with us replacing the hitch and tools in it at our son’s was out of the question so we had to find something to occupy some of our time. 

The first time we had walked around seeing the Navy Yard Park along the river’s edge was during the winter at night and we’d frozen ourselves doing it. The next time had to have been the hottest day of the year where Kathy almost passed out from the heat. This time we finally managed to get it right as the temperature was perfect under clear sunny skies. I guess there is some truth to the saying that “the third time is a charm”. 

After walking around for nearly two hours we had worked up an appetite so we thought we’d have an early supper. Wanting something different than the usual and trying to save some money while we were at it I looked in my appointment book. That is where I keep all the coupons that are delivered in the mail so if we’re out we can save a few dollars. Today we ate at Subway having our own subs and pops for $10.00. It was more than filling without feeling stuffed. 

We were still a bit too early to go visiting Kevin and Melissa so we went to Walmart to walk around. We looked in nearly all the departments before picking up cereal for breakfast tomorrow and heading for the checkout. There we ran into our old dentist and cousin Frank Lovell. It was Kathy and I that kept telling Frank how great retired life felt that he finally was convinced and packed it in. Now he says it’s the best job that he’s ever had. He is looking much healthier than he did before hanging up his shingle. 

Visiting with the kids is always a treat and a pleasure. Even though we got there earlier than our normal time we still filled the time discussing things that were of use to us all. As per usual we had our share of laughs unfortunately it was at Melissa’s expense because of one of her phobias. 

Hopefully it won’t be too late tomorrow that the truck will be ready for pick up so then we can make the appointment to get the trailer repaired. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
