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.

All Messed Up Again.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After having another very restful night it still took time for our eyes to focus on what we were doing. First having breakfast and watching the Weather Channel to see the wonderful weather our area will have for the next few days and then finally we headed to the computers. Since there was nothing pressing we took our time to catch up on all our reading. 

Before long Kathy was back to researching our travels down to Florida but it is not for this coming winter. Heck no all our plans have been made for our 2014/15 trip this is for our 2015/16 trip. When Kathy reads a blog about something or someplace that catches her interest and we haven’t done that or been there she really digs into it. When we leave home on any of our trips we already know where we’ll be staying and what we’ll be doing. Any research done while on the road will be for another trip. 
Taking down the breadbox.
If you recall back in June I had done some cabinet making for the trailer and when I applied the stain the color inside the can and what it was labelled for were quite different. My plan was to go to the trailer by myself and remove all the drawer faces, doors and breadbox and bring them back to the apartment to redo them today.

Just as we were about to have our lunch the phone rang and it was our friend Kathie. Her husband Ross had a major heart attack while at work in Goderich yesterday morning. After he was stabilized he was then Air-transported back to the local hospital in Windsor.

Once the lunch time dishes were washed and put away Kathy and I headed over to the trailer where it took less than five minutes to do my chore. We stopped at Sears so Kathy could get a new battery for her watch. 
Cabinetry that I need to redo.
It was nearly 2:00 when we checked in at I.C.U. with a false identification that I was Kathie’s brother. We surprised Kathie, Ross, daughter Christine and their grandson Liam. In a way I really didn’t lie because when our kids were all growing up together they always referred to me as uncle and my kids did the same in return.

Of course we had to suit up with sterile gowns and gloves before entering his room. Ross was very alert and glad to see Kathy and I. The nurses kept coming and going checking this and that and giving him his medication. Ross explained that everything was going well at work when suddenly he woke up as he was about to be loaded into the medical transport helicopter. He commented that his trip only took 26 minutes compared to the two and a half hour trip it would have taken on the ground. Once we were sure that he was going to be okay and that he might be home on Monday we said our see you later and headed out. 
We used the car to do our errands today.
As we were heading for the expressway I was reminded that I was still one clear plastic container short for the trailer and the east side Walmart didn’t have it. Once we found the container we filled it with groceries we also needed and headed for home.

Once everything was put away at the apartment we headed over to the Michigan Diner for Fish and Chips. A great way to finish a busy day. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


"William," shouted his mother, "there were two pieces of cake in the pantry last night and now there's only one. How do you explain that?"

"It was dark in the pantry," explained William, "and I didn't see the other piece."


  1. I use Pinterest and pin every interesting post I read about some where where we haven't been. Really easy to use.

    Sending prayers for Ross and his family for comfort, healing and peace.

  2. Hope Ross recovers well and soon.
    Planning is something we do on the fly, the way we enjoy to travel, maybe a week or two ahead but thats about it for us.
    This winter probably out west somewhere.

  3. Please don't try that sneaking uncle stuff to get on an airline. Those security people have no sense of humor and we want you around! ;c)

  4. Don't you just hate it when the stain and the labels don't match up... We have a single bookcase that is more yellow rather than the red we were hoping for. We are going to leave it as it will be covered with books and magazines later and I suspect I wont even notice it! Nice reading your blog and thanks for visiting my RV blog too!
