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.

Cooler Dryer Visiting Day.

Our Location today is London, Ontario, Canada.

I’m really starting to enjoy this sleeping all night thing and I’m not even taking a Tylenol. I slept well enough that I was up shortly after 7:30 feeling totally rested. Unfortunately last night Kathy woke up for nearly an hour and a half around 3:00 but recovered a bit by sleeping until after 8:30 this morning. 

After breakfast we still had time to do our morning reading at the computers before venturing out the door. Stepping out into the shade of the trees at 11:00 this morning had us both scrambling back inside to wear warmer clothes and a jacket. 
Bob seeing our trailer for the first time.
Surprisingly it took us only fifteen minutes to travel from our camp to the Mandarin restaurant on Wellington Avenue in London. We sat in the truck watching for my aunt Anna and uncle Bob to arrive for lunch. Just as the sun was starting to make us feel warm wearing our jackets they arrived. Being early for our reserved time allowed us a solid round of hugs and handshakes before going in. We only saw Anna a few weeks ago at our apartment but it was back in December the last time we saw Bob. Inside the restaurant and seated at our table the conversation never stopped because there was always someone willing to talk while the others ate their meals and listened. Even though we all ate more than we normally do because the Mandarin is an all you can eat none of us felt over stuffed when we left.   
Kathy and Anna in the chairs. Bob preferred sitting on the table for his back.
In the past we had invited them to see our trailer but Bob would pass on it due to his breathing issues. We had brought Anna to see it before and then returned to their apartment to continue visiting. Today Bob surprised us and said as long as nobody was smoking up the park with a campfire he’d like to see the trailer. We were more than happy to have them both over. He was really impressed with all the improvements we have done and couldn’t understand why the manufactures didn’t do most of them at the factories.

As I have said in the past that Bob was very inspirational for my choice of a trade for a career. While Kathy and Anna were talking I was busy picking Bob’s brain for information that is not even available online for some things. We sat outside enjoying the cool breeze under the trees listening to the birds welcoming the warming sunshine. Unfortunately due to his exposure to chemicals during his career Bob now needs to use oxygen and it was getting time for them to head home. With more hugs and handshakes and promises to meet again before Christmas which is only 169 days away they headed home. Thanks Anna and Bob for the wonderful visit.

After they left Kathy and I put things away and went shopping. My old sandals are in need of replacing plus a few other things that we hunted around for. We did manage to scratch a few things off our list but not all so we’ll see what happens tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Chris and Paul are walking in the desert. One is carrying a lamppost, the other one has a telephone booth.
Chris asks, "Why are you carrying a telephone booth?"
Paul answers, "When the lions come, I put it down, get into it and I'll be safe."
"Oh!" says Chris.
Paul asks, "And why are you carrying a lamp post?"
Chris replies, "When the lions come, I'll throw it away, so I can run faster."
