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.

Changing With Time.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Kathy got her wish last night by having such a good night’s sleep that it rubbed off on me. We struggled to open our eyes shortly after 8:00 this morning but within minutes of walking around the apartment we were feeling full of energy.
Back this summer I posted about accidentally finding a brood of wild turkeys which for this area is a phenomena. We have seen then on several occasions since that time period during different times of the day and basically seeing them maturing into young adults. While we were having breakfast this morning the brood once again made their appearance.
Since the grass in the field behind our building is constantly being mowed so the local pet owners have a place for their pets to play and take care of nature calls. These wild turkeys often are seen feeding in this field but today was different. Suddenly they all raised their heads and spread their wings while running towards the end of the field. Not expecting anything like that I didn’t have the camera to record this brood taking flight. Unfortunately there was one of the young turkeys that ran all the way to the end of field while the rest of the brood had flown away. We did see him still in the corner as we were later leaving the building but not when we returned. Hopefully his family returned and he is safe.
By 10:00 Kathy and I were on our way to a couple of stops and an appointments. The first stop was at Kathy’s family doctor where she was able to get her yearly Flu Shot. It only took a few minutes as the nurses are all trained in this procedure. The next stop was our hair cut appointment. We arrived early as Jen was finishing her last customer so we were heading to our next stop before our appointment time. We made a quick stop at the trailer where I retrieved my cold weather cap. With the temperatures dropping the way they are my ball caps will be too light for that weather. Our last stop was at Windsor Gas and Diesel where I spoke with Jim about getting the truck in for a quick service in a couple of weeks.
Back at the apartment we had soup and a sandwich for lunch after which we did the dishes. Kathy was in a cooking mood so she started cleaning out the fridge and had me willingly chopping meats and vegetables as she started putting together Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup and Pecan/Date muffins. Working together makes everything go so much quicker.
Since this is Wednesday we were on our way to Amherstburg for our weekly visit with our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa. We had our usual wonderful visit with them but we also got to tell them about the conversation we were having with Melissa’s parents at the Halloween Party. They are getting up in age and developing health issues. They were asking about living in an apartment because they still have their home with all the chores and problems that come with it. After they listened to us they started saying they have to sell their home. Melissa was shocked but glad to hear it as she has been telling them that for a long time.
Even Boots came to visit tonight.
With only 58 days before we leave time seems to be flying on one hand and dragging on the other. There is still plenty that we have to do but we can’t wait to be on the road. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
