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.

Recovered but Still Running.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After a nearly sleepless Monday night and moving the furniture around at our daughter’s yesterday I’m proud to say that I had no problem sleeping last night. The only thing that I remembered was laying down and Kathy getting out of bed just after 8:00 this morning. 

Kathy had a laugh when she got to the dining room because I had set myself up for plan B if I had another restless night. I had set the clothes hamper, our laundry cart, the detergent and my clean clothes that I’d be wearing today in the living room. If I had not slept I was determined to make use of the time and was prepared to do the laundry during the wee hours of the morning. 

As soon as breakfast was over Kathy headed to the computer while I started sorting the laundry. I was down stairs shortly after 9:30 and had the choice of which machines I needed to use. During the wash cycle I returned to the apartment where I was able to get all the E-mails and other correspondences taken care of. 
I missed getting the picture of our milestone.
Once the clothes were in the dryers I finished reading the rest of the morning blogs we follow. There was an interesting comment left by Flowergirl on our post last night.
"Look at my visitor number above. My lucky number, I guess."
Both Kathy and I congratulate Flowergirl on her lucky number but are also amazed that we have had that many visitors to our site since we first published our blog. Granted it is not one of the most popular RV Blogs but it tells of what happens when we are travelling and at home and we appreciate all the readers that take the time to know us. Many of you have gotten to know us by the comments that we have made on your posts especially if it is something mechanical which was the field I worked in through my career in industry. Because of that we have gotten to know many RVers by their blogs and have been able to meet and get to know many others face to face making lifetime friendships. 
Everyone wants to say they live here.
Kathy and I finished the last of the corn on the cob cooked in the microwave with a small sandwich for lunch. When I told Kathy that I had put a link about the process in our blog last night she reminded me that I didn’t point it out to our readers so I will repeat it in tonight’s post. The Link is posted up above and was taken from The Caretaker Chronicles blog post. Thanks Bob this really works well.

It was after 1:00 by the time I returned from the laundry room with all the folded clothes to find that Kathy had just finished vacuuming the apartment. By 1:15 we were at our daughter Karen’s to finish installing a splitter I didn’t have yesterday so that I could place the desktop phone on the desk and use the same jack as the internet. By 1:30 we were on our way to pick Kathie up to go visit Ross in the hospital. 

After a short visit with Ross, Kathy and I went downstairs for a coffee so that Kathie and Ross could have some private time. Back at the room Ross had received word that the doctor was keeping him into the weekend because of a concern which is not what Ross wanted to hear. Around 4:30 we all said good bye and we headed to drop Kathie back at home. 

At our apartment I grilled some pork chops and a sliced sweet potato on the Weber to go with the sides that Kathy had made. Tomorrow we still have a lot to do but things can change in an instant. 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've ever been on television not wearing a shirt.


  1. Your grilling and meals always look delicious !!! You two sure keep busy !!!! Hope Ross continues to improve ... Know he did not like being told he had to stay a bit longer ... What ever the Doc figures is usually what's best !!!

  2. I'll be trying that method of microwaving corn on the cob next time. Thanks!
