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.

Back to Cable and Out and About.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

It was another wonderful night for sleeping with the windows wide open last night. Unfortunately Kathy who normally sleeps soundly like that only had a so-so night’s sleep. Most RV’ers would say she had a Pretravel night but we weren’t going anywhere. The problem was that we had an open ended appointment today that was for anywhere between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. With the appointed time being that specific Kathy didn’t want to sleep in. She actually woke me up this morning when she jumped out of bed at 7:33. 

We got dressed before having breakfast and had the dishes washed before we sat at the computers at 8:15. Surprisingly at 10:24 there was a knock on the door and the cable installer was here to reactivate our cable television that we’d given up over three years ago for satellite. Martin had the connection outside of our apartment changed, removed the old Bell satellite boxes, reconnected both our televisions to cable and showed me how to use it all within twenty minutes. It will take us time to get used to the channels so we can watch our favorite shows because the numbers are different. We’ve already noticed a big improvement on many of those channels and we can even use our VCR/DVD player that we couldn’t do while connected to satellite. 

Shortly after Martin had left while I was attempting to show Kathy how to use the new remote I managed to lose the connection and no matter what I did it would not reconnect. Finally I called for technical support but I was on hold for nearly five minutes when I hit the same buttons as before and everything came on the screen crystal clear. Needless to say I hung up immediately and went about doing other chores. 

I ran a quick errand to the Metro Grocery Store for some supplies Kathy needed to finish our lunch. After eating I was immediately on the phone with Bell canceling our television service with them. Of course that’s when they start offering you all kinds of discounts in order to keep your business. They should give long time customers discounts as a thank you for being good clients then they wouldn’t lose customers. 

Later Kathy and I drove to Staples to get another ink cartridge for her printer. This also helped us to get some walking exercise in. From Staples we headed to Walmart to do more walking and get additional groceries. We also made a quick stop at the Dollar Store for a few things. 

Since we haven’t refilled our empty propane cylinder since yesterday Kathy baked a beautiful Salmon Filet in the oven for supper. It didn’t have the same taste it would have had on the Weber but it still tasted great. Not sure what we’ll be up to tomorrow but it should be a busy day. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
