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.

Back Together.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Again last night I had a heck of a time staying asleep which meant that Kathy had a disturbed night because I wasn’t always lying next to her. Of course it was slightly after 8:00 by the time we woke up to have our breakfast. Since we are retired that shouldn’t be much of a problem unless you have an appointment or plans. 
What Kathy first saw this morning.
Our plans were to get to the trailer early to avoid the high heat of the day. After making a few phone calls it was nearly 10:00 by the time we arrived at the storage yard. Kathy was shocked more at the sight of her kitchen because it was in a greater state of a mess than the last time she had seen it. She wanted to be able to keep me company and be of help to me if I needed. 
Kathy reading but ready to help me if necessary.
After opening the slides and windows I lowered the awning and set a chair for Kathy to do some reading. My task was to create a framing to support the drawer glides for the new drawer. Bit by bit it took shape but the heat started taking its toll on the power inverter long before it did me. Unfortunately that changed my disposition to one of frustration. 

Kathy recognized the futility and suggested stopping for lunch since it was already 12:30. Using a coupon we went to the nearby A&W where not only did the food but the cool Air Conditioned building helped to reinvigorate us. 
The stain used should have matched the original wood trim.

Back at the trailer I struggled without the use of the drill but had everything assemble and partially cleaned up for us to be heading home by 3:00. Unfortunately the high Humidex made it feel closer to the century mark and had already taken its toll on the both of us. It wasn’t long before we both needed to sit in front of the Air Conditioner to cool down and have a Snap. That Snap turned into an hour of sleep for the both of us. 
The new drawer where once was wasted space.
It was after 6:00 before we sat down to a bowl of soup for supper. Having had supper for lunch we now had lunch for supper. Now I only have to finish putting away the rest of the tools and the trailer is once again road worthy. 
New storage space.
Kathy and I are not happy with the color of the stain because the paint chip showed it much closer in color to the original wood finish. Not sure what we will do about if anything at this time. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Two missionaries get apprehended by a tribe of cannibals who put them in a large pot of water, build a fire under it and leave them there. A few minutes later, one of the missionaries starts to laugh uncontrollably. The other missionary can't believe it. He says, "What's wrong with you? We're being boiled alive! They're going to eat us! What could possibly be funny at a time like this?" The other missionary says, "I just peed in the soup."


  1. There is a way to pull some of the stain color back out. You either rub the wood down with mineral spirits or denatured alcohol and a clean cloth. Hope that helps.

  2. You continue to amaze me with the additions you are able to make to the RV! Good job!

  3. Excellent job! I must have been a difficult job if you didn't have a drill. Paul would have gone nuts.

  4. Too bad about the color of the stain. Probably a different type of wood?
