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.

Bad News and Slow Accomplishments.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

When Kathy and I finished cleaning the trailer on Monday the first thing Kathy did before taking a warm shower was to take a Tylenol to ease her aching muscles. Because I intend to donate blood tomorrow I had to abstain from using the Tylenol and just hope the pain would go away. The back pain that kept me awake for three hours last night assured me that my wish had not been met. Of course this lack of sleep meant that we slept in until after 8:30 to make up for it before we had breakfast. 

The Weather Channel displayed that we’d be having perfect temperatures to accomplish the work that I intended today. Moments before we were about to walk out the door my aunt Anna called from London to inform me that my uncle Bob was in the Hospital. Saturday night he had fallen in the washroom injuring himself but refusing to go to the emergency. On Sunday his doctor came to check him at their apartment and just called an ambulance. At 79 years old he managed to break three ribs. Because of his using Oxygen to breath they have to be certain he doesn’t catch Pneumonia. 

After loading the truck and getting fuel on the way we finally made it out to our son Kevin’s by 10:30. He was busy cleaning up his yard in preparation for the Canadian Thanksgiving as well as their yearly Halloween Party. Kathy brought the food in that she had brought from home for lunch. I unloaded the cart and all the supplies that I’d brought along and then started working on my projects. 

I managed to get all the materials that needed cutting and adjusting for two of my jobs done before Kathy called us to lunch. Kathy had made soup and sandwiches which helped us to warm up while we relaxed. 

Returning to the garage I finished doing the saw work on two more jobs before Cameron got home from high school. Cameron has exceptionally sensitive hearing and the sound of the power saw is painful for him so I try to get it all done before he gets home. 

I finished filing a few more pieces while Kathy helped to sweep the garage before I loaded everything back in the truck. She also cleaned up the patio area of leaves and twigs. I hope to get some of these pieces assembled at the apartment. Kevin and Melissa are also using the garage for entertainment purposes this Sunday. 

Kathy and I went to McDonald’s where we had supper by using a coupon to save some cash. Afterwards we walked around the Walmart for some exercise for a while before heading back to Kevin and Melissa’s for our weekly Wednesday night visit. 

There is never a shortage of things to talk about when we get together and plenty of things to laugh about while there. Of course their little kitten Boots who they have had for just over a week was keeping us entertained with his antics as well.  He really is a very special little kitten. 

Kathy and I would like to welcome our newest blog follower Leslie Alpen. Unfortunately Leslie doesn’t have a blog of her own listed in her profile at this time. If that changes at a later date I’ll be sure to give a shout out for others to check it out. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Man in hospital: "After my operation, will I be able to play the piano?"

Surgeon: "I don't see why not."

Man: "Good, because I couldn't before."

  1. Oh dear, so sorry to read about Uncle Bob. Surely hope he doesn't have pneumonia.
    I just love Boots. What a cutie pie for sure.
