It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

As we were leaving our daughter Karen’s home last night I was having a problem. Unfortunately it took until I was ready to go to bed that I properly diagnosed myself. Because I am on the opposite end of the scale than Kathy I had presumed that my sugar was dropping. As soon as I laid down on the bed and the room started spinning out of control I knew it was an inner ear imbalance. After finding and taking my medication for Vertigo it took me nearly fifteen minutes just to lay down without the room spinning and another fifteen minutes before falling asleep. This morning the walls helped me to get to the kitchen where as soon as I had our breakfast made I took another pill for Vertigo along with my morning vitamins. 

Shortly after 9:00 we were heading across town because Kathy had an appointment with our Optometrist. Driving westbound on Tecumseh road just past Jefferson Avenue we noticed a car in front of us starting to drift across the lane next to us just missing another vehicle. Because the city lanes are not straight but curve for turning lanes this car continued in a straight line crossing in and out of the turning lane until it clipped a car in the turning lane. The clipped car remained but the other car kept going so while Kathy was trying to call 911 I kept tailing him at a safe distance. He finally crossed into oncoming traffic just missing a transport and colliding with a car in the curbside lane causing plenty of damaged to both vehicles. There were plenty of witnesses and nobody was hurt but it looked like the senior gentleman was very disoriented behind the wheel of the rogue car. We informed other witnesses that he had collided with another vehicle up the road and even though someone had removed his car keys he was still trying to start his car. 

We made it to Kathy’s appointment with plenty of time. As he checked her eyes the doctor added the dreaded Dilating drops that Kathy so hates. It would take most of the day for her eyes to refocus. 

On the way back to the apartment we stopped at the Shopper’s Drug Store we now deal with in order for me to get a refill on my Vertigo pills. We had to wait a bit because the last time that prescription was filled we were dealing with another Shopper’s Drug store. Through the wonders of the internet they soon had the authorization they needed so I could continue my home care treatment on my own. 

Back at the apartment we enjoyed some of the homemade chili that Kathy made the other day. As expected all the flavors from the different ingredients had melded together making it taste much better than the day it was made. 

The remainder of the afternoon was spent relaxing in the recliners, reading on the computers until it was time to make supper. We worked together making a great salad while Kathy had some Salmon baking in the oven. It all tasted delicious! Watching the 6 o’clock News while we enjoyed our meal they gave another snuggle alert for tonight and a bundle up warning for the kids going to school tomorrow. 

Kathy’s eyes are finally starting to focus and hopefully by morning my balance will have improved enough that I can get more things crossed off my to-do list. There’s only 38 days left before we head south again. 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

Your home has more good tires than your car.


  1. Hmmm, vertigo is no fun! I sure hope you are feeling better now.

    Perhaps those cool nights will prompt an earlier departure to find the heat in the southern USofA.

  2. My you did have a stressful day. Hot chili no doubt came as a treat. Thinking it's REALLY cold up there.

  3. That accident was a close call, sounds like no one was injured, a good thing.
