It's about time.

Trip Down Memory Lane and More Progress.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

It felt wonderful to wake up to the sun shining through the blinds and drapes this morning but we didn’t even have to see the forecast on the Weather Network to know we’d be experiencing high winds again today. Looking outside at a clear sky we could see the distant tree tops bending back and forth. As we sat eating our breakfast the sky started filling with lines of black clouds that increased the wind to the speed that it howled through our closed windows. 
We had just finished our morning reading on the computers when the phone rang informing us that our package had arrived from the warehouse at our local Canadian Tire store. That was news we were happy to hear so it didn’t take long before we headed out the door. The clerk immediately recognized us and wrote up our bill before putting a call to the shipping dock in the rear of the building. The beauty about waiting until today to make this purchase was that we saved a hundred dollars plus tax off the suggested retail price. Once the purchase was completed Kathy was surprised when the shipper told her we should back up to the loading dock. I was surprised to see two fairly fit looking men struggling to lower the box into the bed of the truck.
All this was in a single box about four feet wide seven feet long and a foot thick. I had planned on bringing it to our apartment or storage unit until I struggled to reposition it in the back of the truck. Kathy made a quick call to our son Kevin to see if we could temporarily store it in his garage. He said no problem so after I tied the box down we headed towards Amherstburg. Backing the truck as close to the gate as possible Kevin and I struggled to walk the box to a clear spot along the wall in his garage. Since the box is not marked weight wise we can only guess it is over two hundred pounds so the next time it’s moved I’ll remove the pieces from the box and assembling it when it gets to the park. Since Kevin’s home is closer it will also be a shorter trip to move it to the RV Park.
We grabbed a quick bite on our way home but we turned down Laurier Drive in LaSalle taking a short trip down memory lane. We drove by the home we first lived in after we were married and noted a lot of changes made to the exterior. It was nice seeing another young family is being raised in that home. We even drove through the old neighborhood until we drove by the new City Hall. Seeing all those changes only reinforced our decision to be Fulltimers.
When we got home Kathy had more research to do while I started working on the laundry. It seemed I wasn’t the only one thinking that way today so waiting for machines became a necessary part of the chore that I finished just on time for the 6 o’clock News. Kathy cooked us up a Grand Slam breakfast for supper. I’m still trying to find the best settings on the computers but it is a work in progress that is all taking shape. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
