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.

Windy & Wet Halloween.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Even though we could have slept better both Kathy and I woke at a fairly reasonable time this morning. That was a good thing because that meant we would be able to calmly have breakfast while the Weather Channel got to show how we’d be having rain all day and that it could reach near tropical storm status by this evening as the wind would be picking up through the course of the day and through the night. That will definitely put a damper on a lot of Trick or Treating plans. 

We had time get our morning computer reading in before leaving early for my appointment. That turned out to be wise choice because there was a mix of the Overly Cautious and the Accidents Waiting To Happen drivers on the road making it difficult for anyone with a combination of driving etiquette and safe driving skills to get to their destinations. 

The surgeon confirmed that an Ultra Sound is probably the most useless way of finding a hernia but did confirm there was a small tear but not enough to worry about at this time. When Kathy said we were going to Florida until Easter he said he’d see me after we came back. That sounded good to us. 

We walked through the city market and I spoke with Al whom I used to work with before the company closed the plant. He has a booth set up dealing with collectable sports memorabilia as a hobby and a small income on the side. From there we stopped at Shoppers Drug Mart where Kathy picked up a few more things on our list of toiletries to put in the trailer before we head south. 
It truly was a blessing that Kathy bought that new light winter jacket yesterday as it is waterproof because it has not stopped raining all day. Heading in the direction of the Devonshire Mall we didn’t really want fast food so we stopped at the Back Road CafĂ©. The entire staff waitresses, cooks and servers we all dressed in costumes to celebrate Halloween. The food is always great with a mom and pops feel that welcomes everyone from truckers, business men and women and anyone that loves the at home feel of the place. 

Leaving there we finally made it to the mall where we went to Sears where Kathy wanted to look for some new jeans and a light scarf. Today was our lucky day as they were in the process of filling their racks and Kathy managed to find exactly what she wanted. Since the weather was not a day to be outside we continued walking around the mall to limber our legs and to wear off our lunches. 

It was nearly 4:00 by the time we got back home and the wind was making the rain feel like you were being hit by a power washer when it stung your face. Sitting at the computers to read some early afternoon postings we noticed that John and Judy will be starting their southern travels in the morning. We wish you a safe trip and we might even see you in Florida this winter. 

We just hunkered down for the night and finished the last of the Cabbage Roll Casserole for supper. We are sure there will be a lot of disappointed kids that won’t be going out Trick or Treating in this weather tonight. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
