Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.
When Kathy saw her family doctor the other day she got her yearly Flu Shot. Yesterday I spent the day outside in all that Fresh Air, working on setting up our basement so that when traveling we can comfortably survive off the grid for extended periods of time. We also added our Skylight Shade Panel which for one thing really keeps the early morning sunlight and street lights from waking us when sleep is needed. Combine any of those with the Sound of Raindrops falling on our roof and we had no problems whatsoever falling and staying asleep last night.

We both woke shortly after 8:00 this morning knowing we were limited to the amount of time we’d be at Home today. With the completion of breakfast, we both had a chance to finish our morning reading before getting chores done that would finalize in our heading out the door shortly before 10:30.
We were heading in the direction of Lakeshore where we planned on watching our grandson Tyler play hockey.
When we stayed Home last winter in preparation to becoming Fulltimers we only missed a couple of his
games for the entire season and that was because we were both sick. Since we’ll
be leaving soon we want to get in as many games as we can before we leave.
We were nearly at the rink when Kathy suggested
stopping for a Snack and Hot Chocolate at Tim Hortons. The snack turned into a Breakfast Wrap which actually tasted fairly decent and was filling
enough that we wouldn’t be needing lunch. The large Hot Chocolates were so hot we ended up bringing them along to the
ice rinks to finish drinking them.
Arriving at the New Belle River Arena around 11:30 we walked in from the
parking lot with our daughter Karen. The game started at 11:45 and within
fifteen seconds Tyler’s team scored the first goal. Due to the Fourteen to Twenty-year old age group of this division there were very few
breaks in the action. Also due to the age of the players some have job
commitments away from the team so players need to be able to play multiple
positions. Today Tyler who normally plays Forward
was playing Defense and he
seemed to do such a good job of it that his team won 6 to 0 shutting out the

After the game we headed over to Karen’s home in Tecumseh where we visited for a while. Her home is still in restoration mode after hundreds of Tecumseh residences were flooded when two months of rain fell in only two hours. Sanford didn’t go far from our sides because he hardly sees us lately not like when we would stop in during the day and just visit with him. It was a pleasant visit and we finally headed for Home after 2:00.

By the time we arrived at the trailer Kathy really needed a Snap so while she did that I went outside to dump our tanks. Back inside I started editing the Wedding Pictures that were shot on Friday and my eyes suddenly closed as well. Nearly a half hour passed before we both woke up. Later when I talked about emptying the tanks Kathy didn’t realize I’d done it.

and the bottom of the walls that absorbed the water.
For supper Kathy made a simple Macaroni and Cheese Dish with a Fruit Cup for dessert. Hopefully the rain will have stopped before we get up in the morning so that we can continue getting things ready for our southwest departure. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.
