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.

Getting Aligned and Misaligned.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

I really didn’t like the idea of setting the alarm clock last night but I didn’t want to be late for my 8:00 appointment this morning. Even though we fell asleep as fast as our heads hit the pillows because we had been up late the night before I still was laying in bed wide awake before 5:00 this morning. It’s the same thing I go through on a pretravel night as well. Trying to fall back to sleep hard as I might I finally just got up shortly after 6:00. 

After having breakfast by myself (not something Kathy nor I like to do) I was out the door shortly after 7:00 and sitting in front of the bay door of Windsor Spring and Alignment waiting for the manager to arrive to open the shop for the day. I even enjoyed a second cup of coffee on them while waiting for the technician to reset the toe-in on the truck. The best part was that I was back at the apartment shortly after 9:00 and it didn’t cost and arm or a leg. 

Kathy was up and looking disgruntled that she had also had to eat breakfast by herself this morning. We headed to the computers to get caught up on the RV Bloggers we follow. As lunch approached we once again got caught up in watching another Christmas Special that we hadn’t seen before so we started watching it from the dining room table before moving to the living room to finish watching it. 

I thought of something else that I needed to look up online so Kathy decided to do the same. Like many other RV bloggers we use a Verizon MiFi hotspot for our computers but unlike most Canadian Snowbirds with the same system we are continually having problems with them. In the past we’ve had problems with accessing our account to them shutting us down and even not accepting our payments on our accounts. Today Kathy found that they had managed to throw a hundred dollar charge on our account for no reason. For the next seventy-five minutes I was on the phone with numerous managers getting that mess straightened around again. They try to convince you to go online and to handle the problem yourself but their system is very User Unfriendly. Makes you wish you could reach through the phone and touch someone at the other end and not in a polite way. 

After supper and the 6 o’clock news we went over to our daughter Karen’s for a delayed weekly visit. Both Greg and Kylla were at work while Karen was trying to instruct Tyler through the art of adding lights to the Christmas tree. What really set it off was when the song the Twelve Pains of Christmas started playing on the radio. It left us all laughing at the difficulties many people have getting ready for the holiday season. We had an enjoyable visit remembering tales of Christmases Past that we’d personally experienced. 

Tomorrow we will make more progress on our to-do list. 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 think truffles are a brand of potato chips.


  1. We totally understand the unfriendly service. They always tell us we are a valued customer until we till them they charged us too much. Strange how that works.

  2. You sure don't have good luck with Verizon. In almost three years we have never needed to contact them. We just prepay a month with a top up card and it just works.
