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.

Hockey and Landscape.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After another good night’s sleep I lay in bed for over a half hour before getting out of bed before 6:30 this morning. I tried to cheat and set my pillows where I would normally lay in order to dupe Kathy into thinking I was still in bed. After opening the curtains in the other rooms I started my morning reading on the computer but shortly after 7:00 Kathy walked into the office. She said the pillows didn’t fool her one bit and she had tossed and turned since I had gotten out of bed. We both finished our morning reading before going for breakfast.

By 11:30 we were on our way out the door heading to the New Belle River Arena to watch our grandson Tyler play hockey. When the game started Tyler who was playing center had a breakaway and managed to score the first goal of the game within the first ten seconds of the game. The opposing team scored their first goal twenty seconds later. The score would tip back and forth with Tyler putting another dozen unsuccessful shots on the opposing net. Finally Tyler managed another breakaway and tied the game with only five seconds left in the game. This was truly a game that kept everyone on the edge of their seats with a final score of 5 to 5.

Back at the apartment we had a quick snack before driving over to our daughter Karen’s home to help her finish modifying her front flowerbed landscape. She had started to take one section of it apart because the previous owner of the house had it installed too close to the driveway. If Greg parked his truck too close to the edge of the driveway you would be tripping over the landscaping leading to the front door. Tyler came out to give me a hand while we dug up these specially made landscaping bricks that had the flat stones glued on top of them. At first Karen had decided to just modify the one flowerbed but then she decided to just remove that section totally. Not having a wheelbarrow or utility cart to move these heavy stones with to the opposite side of the driveway we had to get creative. In order to save our backs we used one of Tyler’s old skateboards and it worked like a charm. After leveling the ground as best we could we called it a day and Kathy and I headed for home. Kathy cooked up a wonderful supper of Salmon fillets baked potatoes and carrots.

All day long including the 6 o’clock News all you hear is about the barbaric terrorist attack in Paris. When growing up we were taught to love our fellow man but it seems that this terrorist group missed that lesson. Unfortunately this will make things difficult for people to trust those who are truly in need of help. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. I don't think I would have ever thought of using a skateboard. Great idea.

  2. How nice to help out with the flowerbed! Good thinking of using the skateboard, work smarter not harder???
