Seventeen More Stops to Accomplishments.


Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Without any consideration I automatically wore my regular CPAP mask when I went to bed last night. As soon as the mask was applied there was a sting to the already sensitive skin but the mask never leaked any air the entire night. Again that proves that I’ve developed an allergy to the materials the mask is made from.

We weren’t in any big hurry to start the errands this morning so we managed to get our E-reading completed before we left. We had plans that went into the evening so we didn’t want to have to sit around killing too much time.

We’ve worked hard setting up our site to make it comfortable but just as we were about to leave I pointed out a slight problem to Kathy. The rear of our trailer goes beyond the end of the patio which means that if it has recently rained and I go into our outdoor kitchen I’m standing in gravel covered mud. I suggested getting patio stones to lay next to the shed at the end of the existing patio which will keep mud off the patio and out of the trailer.
The stone in front of the trees is sitting on mud.
We made another run to the park garbage and recycling center where we not only had household items to get rid of but also packaging from some of our outdoor improvements before leaving the park.

It wasn’t long before we were heading up Walker Road towards Windsor. Our first stop was at Home Outfitters where Kathy continued her search for the elusive seat covers. One of the clerks suggested one brand in particular and we reluctantly purchased it even if the colour was slightly off. We then drove across the street to Canadian Tire where our list included everything from automotive supplies to a plant Kathy wanted for her stand by the shed.
It was past noon so we stopped at Burger King where we took advantage of their two specialty sandwiches for five dollars. With a couple of soft drinks, they were more than enough to satisfy our appetites.

We then drove up to Home Depot where Kathy went looking for a plant tray so the plant could survive on rain water as well as what we would give it. I located three different patio stones that might do the job so I waited until Kathy arrived to show her the choices. She almost jumped out of her skin when I acted like I was tossing her a patio stone only to find out it was made of plastic. It was only a few cents cheaper than the cement stones and its durability was unknown. I then loaded thirty-two stones per cart, on two carts and wheeled then to the checkout. When the young lad rang up the total we both said at the same time “That’s not right.” Both Kathy and I are good at math and already knew he was charging us two and a half times what they were worth.
After getting that straightened around and loading the truck it rode quite smoothly on its way to Jysk. Again Kathy was still looking for more of those oversized seat covers. We were shocked when we found out they didn’t carry any at all.

Having other things to accomplish we headed to VitalAire where we found out the mask liners that they said would protect my face are on backorder. That means they could be in next week or later. Bummer.

We stopped at Guardian Storage where we first got our mail before driving back to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit. I needed a plastic tarp so when I paint the picnic table I won’t drip on the patio. Kathy needed some documents that she’d mistakenly filed away. When we finished I chose to exit by the rear gate. It wasn’t until I was halfway through the yard that I realized I was driving through pothole city. I gritted my teeth hoping that all the patio stones would survive the ordeal.

We stopped to fuel the truck at the Pioneer gas station which is pretty good considering I fueled it on the 22nd of April and we made a lot of trips back and forth until the apartment was empty. Now we’ll only head to Windsor for appointments or once a week to visit our daughter which will really save the fuel.

We stopped at the Credit Union where we picked up some Loonies (Canadian One Dollar Coins) so I can do the laundry in the park. We then drove across the street to Walmart where we got some walking in while accomplishing more Cxxxxxxxs Shopping as well as buying some not so perishable groceries.
With this Sunday being Mother’s Day I took Kathy to her favourite local restaurant the Michigan Diner and since this was Friday what else would we have but the Senior’s sized Fish and Chips.
It was after 5:00 and we drove to the Tecumseh Mall where Kathy got some stamps at the Post Office. We then walked around the Dollar Store where we got a few more things to bring home to our site.
Shortly after 6:00 we stopped in to visit with our daughter Karen at her home. She was really interested to hear what we’ve been up to and Sanford enjoyed the deep massaging rub that I always give him.
We arrived at the Zehrs grocery store around 8:00 and finished getting the more perishable groceries that would have spoiled if we had bought them earlier.
It was a pleasant ride back to Wildwood as the sun was beginning to set. By the time I hauled all the groceries in for Kathy to put away it was very dark outside. The weather and temperatures were wonderful today. Now we can only hope they continue through the rest of the month. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
