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.

Feeling Good Enough for Errands and Visiting

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

After trying a number of over the counter remedies to deal with a cold before I went to bed last night it gave me some but not total relief. It did allow me when I woke up through the night to turn over and go back to sleep. When I woke this morning it was at a more reasonable time (8:00) I didn’t have the hard congestion but did feel like I was looking through a heavy fog for close to an hour. 

We did sit at the computers for a short while before heading out for our haircut appointments at Fantastic Sam’s. We get a seniors discount off the regular price and for every seven haircuts or styles you get you get a free haircut. This allows for us to accumulate stamps much quicker and it only cost $9.42 for the both of us today because we got one free. 

Since we still had errands to run as well and it was nearing noon we stopped at Wendy’s where we were both ordered a full sized Baja Salad with drinks, an extra chili to add to the salads and a small Frosty for desert for less than twenty dollars by using coupons. When we left to do the rest of our errands we were far from hungry. 

We stopped at Benson’s tire to check out the prices on the tires we had installed on the trailer. Larry informed me that we pay the same per tire whether we bought one tire or a set of four but because we bought for the truck and trailer at the same time he deducted $200.00 off the top. 

The next stop was at VitalAire to pay the balance off on my new CPAP machine. Our healthcare provider pays nearly the entire cost except dispensing fees. My cost for a fifteen hundred dollar machine worked out to $92.10 which is not bad. 

We did stop at Walmart for some new seat cushions and place mats for our dining room table and chairs and a light weigh winter coat that Kathy will be able to wear to Florida on those cold winter nights. Driving to the next driveway we went to Staples to get some office supplies that we are lacking when we travel in the trailer. 

Back at the apartment we were only there long enough to enjoy some homemade Chicken Wraps for supper before leaving to go to Amherstburg.  This is Wednesday evening and we make our weekly visit with Kevin and Melissa. Cameron and Matthew are looking forward to going Trick or Treating tomorrow night and even though the forecast is calling for rain we can only hope that they can get out for a short while and stay dry. The rest of the visit was filled with laughter and discussion leaving all the adults in a happy mood by the end of the night. 

We’re both hoping that we feel even better tomorrow from these colds especially since I’ve got and appointment with the surgeon. Hopefully he’ll have some good news for me. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.        


You Might Be a Redneck If

You and your wife wear matching outfits to church.


  1. $200 savings in nothing to sneeze at. Nice that they made that offer.

    Hope you two do feel so much better tomorrow.

    SIDE NOTE: I don''t have your email address to thank you properly so I will thank you here for your information on our landing gear issue. Paul tore the leg apart today and found the shear pin waaaaay down in the leg is the issue. We will try to find one tomorrow and get this jack working again.

  2. Another day getting ready to head south, colds will soon be better and you will be feeling awesome.
