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.

Troublesome Radio.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

With the cool weather we experienced yesterday it was the perfect night for sleeping with the windows open. Fresh air and the distant sound of traffic on the highway what better way is there to sleep. We both slept so well that shortly after 7:00 this morning we both were out of bed ready to start the day. 

Even before starting to make breakfast I once again emptied the new countertop of all our electrical appliances. As mentioned the other day Dan the building handyman would be around to sand the mudding he did last week and add the finishing filler. 

We had breakfast finished by 8:00 and after getting dressed went to the computers to do our reading and working on some spreadsheets. Kathy had entries to make while I had to modify a spreadsheet to make it more user-friendly. 

About 9:15 there was a knock on the door and Dan was here to do his job. I had been trying to reach Ross to see when would be the best time to pick him up this afternoon but had only gotten his voice mail. No sooner had Dan walked in the door when the phone rang and it was Kathie telling me Ross would be ready at 12:00 noon. 

I completed the spreadsheet I was modifying just after Dan had left so I put most of the appliances back on the counter. Kathy then made us an early lunch and it’s a good thing she did. After eating I grabbed some supplies and was about to go pick Ross up when the phone rang. Ross was downstairs in the lobby. He came up for a few minutes before we went out to the truck. 

We needed to drive over to the Guardian Storage Yard for multiple reasons. One my Allen wrenches were in the tool box in the trailer. Two there was plenty of open space that we could work on the antennas without interference to match the single antenna. Third we had to connect the truck to the trailer to match the twin antennas. I had Ross reading the meter and keying the Microphone so we could match the antennas. We did manage to set the antennas but ran into multiple problems doing so because there seems to be a major problem with the radio and it’s not that old. What should have taken us an hour to do took us almost three hours to accomplish. Back at the apartment Ross didn’t come up but just headed for home. 

Last week Kathy and I had a talk about using up what we have in our freezer in the apartment. We don’t have that much cold storage in the trailer and get along just fine so we plan on trying the same in the apartment. Since we are in the trailer for nearly half the year or more it would be less wasteful this way. If it works we could eventually get rid of our large freezer. I grilled more Hungarian Houlka that had been in the freezer on the Weber for supper. Once it was grilled we served it open faced on bread and it was delicious.  
The weather reports are showing another warm sunny day in store for tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

The World's Great Proverbs

The early man never borrows from the late man.


  1. I don't like keeping a lot of frozen food. Usually the less we have the fresher it stays. So, I understand getting rid of a large freezer. We did that once too.
