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.

Swinging Away Making Progress.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

After killing even more Yellow Jackets before going to bed last night we thought that was the end of our troubles but after a peaceful sleep we found out differently. I was up only minutes before Kathy and I had already killed another five this morning. That was when it dawned on me when this problem started. Who’d have thought that a beautiful clear sunny day that only reached a high of 75 F (24 C) we’d be running the Air Conditioner. We weren’t doing it because of the heat but because of the Yellow Jackets. 

This building is thirty-three years old and even though the company that owns it has been doing upgrades what they have forgotten to change are the windows. The seals and window guides are worn from age and even though we’d prefer to be breathing fresh air we can’t because that seems to be where these pests are coming in from. 

After breakfast we planned on checking out things on our computers but no matter what Kathy tried neither her laptop nor her PC would connect to the web. I offered her the use of my laptop to do her reading while I started running Malware and Virus Scans on both her computers. I then got dressed and killed a few more wasps before returning to make certain the scans were working as I’d hoped. 

Kathy then got started cleaning the fridge and arranging meals, making homemade soup and cooking Rhubarb sauce for the next few days. I continued monitoring the progress on both her computers while I continued compressing a file that I downloaded yesterday. When I downloaded it for some unknown reason Windows expanded it from a single line of information to up to ten lines. Total it took me nearly fifteen hours to finish compressing 135 pages down to 10. I am now removing a lot of unnecessary data and expanded for Kathy to use and big enough that she’ll be able to read it in hard copy. 

After lunch John from Dominion Collision called saying the truck would probably be ready around 4:00 this afternoon after they washed it and sealed the Toneau Cover Rails. I suggested that they seal the rails before washing it and that I’d wait to pick it up in the morning so they wouldn’t be rushed. That sounded great to him because he hates it if any of their workers do a bad job. 
We planned on doing some grocery shopping this afternoon at the local Zehr’s Grocery Store but when we got there we saw signs outside advertising Tax Free Shopping on Friday and Saturday this week so we changed our plan. We then headed to the Credit Union to do some minor banking and then we drove over to Walmart. We shared at small Chicken McNuggets and a pop at the in store McDonalds. They are starting their yearly Manopoly Game and strangely we not only got a few game tiles but we also won a few free food vouchers. We spent another hour just walking around back and forth throughout the store before heading home. 

Like I said earlier it was a beautiful sunny day so what could finish that kind of day off? Well grilling up a couple of Johnsonville Brats on our Weber Q of course. Kathy made a wonderful Taco salad that topped it off nicely. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
