Errands With Positive Effects.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

As soon as we opened the curtains this morning we knew that the temperature had dropped as forecasted because the sun didn’t seem to be able to break through the heavy cloud covering that we were experiencing. With a scheduled water shut-off slated for 9:00 until 3:00 today as soon as we’d finished our morning reading and chores in the apartment we were off to run some errands. 
Hank Williams Jr.
Our first stop was Express Auto Service on Provincial road to get service done on the car. Unfortunately by the time we got there he was overbooked to the end of the day. That’s when we found out they had just opened a second location and if we’d drive there he’d call ahead for us. Within ten minutes we were at their second location where as promised they were waiting for us. I’d recently noticed some shifting hesitation on the transmission we’d replaced only three years ago. So today we wanted an oil and filter change as well as a transmission flush. As we waited for the car we notice we could watch different vehicles being worked on and different areas of the building through a closed circuit video feed. Kathy had wanted to find a car wash afterwards but when we saw cars being hand washed in the shop we added that to our list of things for them to do. We left there with a shiny looking car that ran better than before and had that new car smell inside all at a very reasonable price. 
Kenny Rogers.
Since it was nearly noon and we had more errands to run we stopped at McDonalds to have their Specialty Chicken Wraps and a free coffee for lunch. This time we got caught right in the middle of lunch hour so there was some waiting for our order and limited places to eat. 

Our last stop was back at the Staples outlet where Kathy had purchased her new laptop. She had a problem with it last Friday which was only six days after we got it home. Kathy had written down the fault that had occurred so the tech new exactly what to look for. It was the Windows file that had not updated since I loaded it last Sunday. I was concerned of the effect it had on the screen so they kept it to run a thorough scan on it overnight. While there we did some store walking and made a few purchases of office supplies that we were actually out of. 
Patsy Cline.
Back at the apartment while Kathy started doing her book-keeping off the memory stick we copied her program and I went to check for our mail. In the process I ran into Dan the building manager who informed me the possible tenants didn’t show to see the apartment yesterday which meant we could have stayed home. He also informed me that the other interested party needed it by the middle of March so that ruled him out. This means that we can expect more of these showings to take place.

Tomorrow we have more errands to run but the first is the big step towards our Fulltiming Adventure. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Change Of Routine For The Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Sleeping in until nearly 8:30 this morning we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast as we watched the Weather Network on the television. Since we are still in the month of February we thought it to be strange that they would be forecasting near sixty degree temperatures for our area today but looking out the balcony door all the accumulated blanket of snow had disappeared overnight. 
A picture of the snow on the ground last evening.
We spent time getting ourselves ready to go out this morning because the building owners had left us notice of a possible new tenant coming to see our apartment and we did not feel like being here. We headed out shortly after 11:00 and arrived at the Devonshire Mall before 11:30. We were there just to get out of the apartment and look around. We had decided on having Chinese food from one of the vendors in the food court for lunch. It was better than the fast-foods but not enough that we’d be ordering Take-out through them. While we ate our food we indulged ourselves in another of our favorite past times we were people watching. Kathy and I have a hard time accepting what some people wear as being fashionable, comfortable or in some cases decent. Oh well it does give us some laughs. It is cute when young parents are eating while their babies are looking at them and wondering what they are doing. Or they are introducing young toddlers to French fries that get poked anywhere on their faces but in their mouths. 
This is what we woke to this morning.
We ran into our granddaughter Ashley at her part-time job as she is still in University. We only spent a minute but she enjoyed our saying hello. We went into nearly every store there was just looking at what they sold. Imagine the looks we got going into stores that catered to school aged to young adult customers. Finally by 3:00 we stopped for a fruit smoothie and a chance to sit for a bit. All that walking on hard surfaces today will surely remind us tomorrow. 
Rules RVer's follow already.
It was after 4:30 when we started making our way home but first we stopped at the Pioneer gas station to fill the car with gas for $0.757 a liter. Like the Diesel the other day we have not seen gas prices this low in Ontario in seven years. Let’s hope they stay down for some time to come. We also stopped at Taco Bell for a couple of tacos each for our supper. 
The store wouldn't sell their roll of Bubble Wrap.
After watching the 6 o’clock News we went over to our daughter Karen’s home for a visit. Sanford has missed our visits so much that he wouldn’t leave us alone and Greg had to command him to lay down. The temperatures today actually hit 59 F (15 C) but the winds were gusting to 45 mph. We had an enjoyable visit but as we were about to leave when Karen showed us how the wind had moved their heavy metal Gazebo on their side deck. The wind had picked it up and put it back down ten feet from where it had been with no damage to it or the house. Lucky!

Tomorrow we have a busy day planned but it is all part of getting ready for our Fulltiming Adventure. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Changed Plans And Team Work.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Last night was another one of those restless nights for me but I was still up by 7:30 again this morning. It was wonderful watching the sun clear the tree tops without any clouds in the sky as I opened the curtains. Then it would dawn on me while eating breakfast that I didn’t take any pictures of something that I am most often not awake to witness. 
Tyler (Black 97) at face off.
We had a light breakfast before going to the computers to do our morning reading and a few other things that needed to be taken care of. Just before having an early lunch we reviewed the changes that will be made to the blog. As we were about to leave at 12:00 we found a notice that another showing of the apartment will be made tomorrow between noon and 2:00 in the afternoon. That dashed my hopes of making the changes to the blog tomorrow. Since I’ll need to make adjustments to column widths and I’m slow at editing HTML I wanted an undisturbed day on the computer so that I’ll get it right the first time. 
Tyler about to make another goal.
Our destination today was the New Belle River Arena to watch our grandson Tyler’s hockey team play. This was a late game starting at 12:45 and being played in “C” Rink. There were no absentees on Tyler’s team today and after the defeats they had suffered the last couple of weeks they were out to win. They played like a well-run machine today. Even Keagan the goalie made saves that he hardly ever did in the past. Tyler was playing center position scored his three goals (Hat Trick) and made two assists to lead his team to an 8 to 0 game. I actually felt sorry for the other goalie. 
Tyler is in there somewhere. I see his leg.
Back at the apartment Kathy had cleaning on her mind so while she scrubbed down the bathroom I cleaned out the oven. I’ve never seen an oven that did not have a removable door making it harder to reach inside to wipe it down. Kathy was actually finished before me and had time to start the Crock Pot up to cook some marinated spare ribs for tonight’s supper. 
Tyler's team won 8 - 0.
We are now nine weeks and counting before the official start of our Fulltiming Adventure and our weather for tomorrow is looking spring-like but there is more of the nasty stuff heading our way later this week. We’ll use that as a guideline on what we do in getting ready to hit the road. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Planning Changes And Still Packing For Fulltiming.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Even without the sounds of Jackhammers and Hammer Drills this morning I was still up before 7:30. I’d finished all my morning reading by the time that Kathy got up an hour later. Luckily we had no new accumulation overnight and the sun was shining brightly in the sky but the temperature had just risen above the 21 F (-6 C) mark. 

With nothing planned for the day after breakfast Kathy began her morning reading while I did my morning chores before returning to my laptop. Kathy has laxed as far as scheduling our travels but is still in research mode of things to do in the areas that we’ll be traveling in or near as well as attractions we might enjoy seeing.
For some time I’ve been contemplating a few changes in the layout of our blog but in order to do it flawlessly I had to research its entire construction. I also discussed these thoughts with Kathy and once we were in agreement I now know what to change, where to change it and when. 

After lunch we again packed a number of things we could haul to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit. Using the utility cart to bring them to the truck still took two loads to accomplish. The only bad thing was the cold weather that seemed to take your breath away. Once at Guardian Storage things worked a little different than most days. Kathy was busy stocking our toiletries and other supplies on the shelves and hanging the clothes on their appropriate rack while I hauled everything in. 

We have both been feeling closed in this winter since we decided not to go south but we also know that it will pay off big in the Spring. Unfortunately with the bad weather we’ve had the last few days a feeling between Hitch-itch and Cabin Fever was not helping with the packing so we decided instead of going straight home that we’d go to the Michigan Diner on Manning Road for supper. Luckily we order from the senior’s menu so the portions are slightly smaller but when we finished our meal we needed to do some walking. 

There were some supplies that we had intended to wait until spring to get for the trailer that we can only get at Canadian Tire. Spring came early as we walked the entire store getting what we needed and getting some exercise while we were at it. We continued our walking exercise over at Walmart where we managed to pick up additional groceries we needed. It all boiled down to us just getting out of our apartment for a short while and enjoying every second of it. 

What tomorrow will bring we don’t know for certain but we can dream and hope it all works out for the best. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s Beginning To Look.…

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Looking outside after opening the curtains this morning didn’t help the situation. All the slush that fell yesterday had melted off due to the afternoon and evening rain. However Mother Nature in its generosity had laid a fresh blanket of white down for us this morning making it more Winter like. Luckily it came as flurries that were light but continual throughout the better part of the day. 
Picture from our dining room window.
With this being Thursday morning you would expect experienced contractors to have completely finished the job in the new Bachelor Apartment below our bedroom. They started the job using a Jackhammer last Friday and have been using Hammer Drills at 8:00 in the morning every day this week. Guess how we woke up again this morning? Even Kathy wanted to go downstairs and put those power tools someplace that would cause somebody some serious discomfort. 
Our parking lot this morning.
We basically hunkered down getting lots of reading in on the southern storms that have hit a number of locations as well as a couple of RV Parks with fatal results. We also did more research towards future travels. After lunch we also managed to accomplish additional packing. Even with the increase in temperature with the blowing wind outside we made no attempt at loading it into the truck. Even though we are not making any major clearances in the apartment it is starting to look empty. 
The sun actually made an appearance just before sunset.
Even though the temperatures will be dropping quite low this evening we are expecting warmer daytime highs through this coming weekend. It is now only 23 days until Spring arrives and both Kathy and I are looking forward to it. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Making Progress On A Yucko Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We both slept later than usual this morning but for a few good reasons. First we didn’t have anything special planned and second when we opened the curtains there was no sun shining through the sleet that was falling. As Kathy would later describe it as being a “Yucko Day.” 
This wet slush is what fell this morning.
After breakfast and our morning reading we still found things that we’ll probably need in the trailer later this summer and other things probably longer. We only kept things that we knew there was a greater chance we’d be using at the first sign of spring. Kathy made certain the bins were labelled so there was no mistaking the contents. 
The ditch between the road and the fence was full.
After the lunch dishes were washed and put away I dressed wearing rain gear and only loaded plastic containers on the utility cart to bring down to the truck. I didn’t take long getting them inside but I still had to clean the morning accumulation of slush from the truck’s windshield. I didn’t stay out longer than necessary but was pretty well soaked from the waist down and in bad need of a change of clothes in that short a time. 
The gravel is covered with water not snow.
It was closer to 4:00 when we drove over to Guardian Storage. All the outdoor storage areas such as where our trailer is parked were totally flooded. The only thing visible was water everywhere you looked. At our Climate Controlled Storage Unit Kathy manned the door to keep the heat in while I unloaded the plastic storage containers from the truck. Once they were all inside I needed to tip them on their sides to drain the water from their lids. 
Water all around our trailer.
We stopped at McDonalds where we both had chicken wraps for supper before making our way out to Amherstburg. Because this is Wednesday we were on our way to our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa’s for our weekly visit. We had our usual fun filled visit talking about a number of different things.

On our return trip the intensity of the rain made it hard to see the lines on the road. I simply turned on both sets of Fog Lamps on the truck and the problem went away. As a fact other vehicles started following us like we were the Pied Piper leading everyone through the rain. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Day of Surprises.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We were so tired when we went to bed last night that it surprised us when we didn’t wake until minutes after 8:00 this morning. Another surprise was the way we woke up to the sound of Hammer Drills pounding away again in the apartment directly below our bedroom. It was the same Bullheadedness by the contractor hired to do the job using the words “We’re almost done” to cover up the act of not giving us any advanced warning. 
With the on and off noise throughout the morning we were again surprised when attempting to wash our dishes after lunch that no water would come out of the faucets. Normally we get prepared for those by filling our water containers and a pail. That was about the time we had a knock on the door from Dan our apartment manager. He’d finally been contacted by the contractor requesting we not use our toilette because they had to cut into the stack. I told him of the water being off but told him we had to go out. Unfortunately before leaving we forgot about not using the toilet. OOPS!


We had an appointment with our family lawyer for 3:00 this afternoon. She handled the purchase and sale of our home as well as past testaments. After all the legalities were done it was like a long overdue visit and when she heard about our Fulltiming plans became very interested and envious of us. When Kathy spoke of her past career she surprised us admitting to knowing Kathy’s employers because they were from the same ethnic background. 

On our way back home we wanted to kill some time so we stopped at Fabric land where Kathy needed to purchase some trim so she can adjust some of her capris. While there we also looked into some curtain backing so we can make our bedroom curtains in the trailer more light-proof. The surprise was everything we bought was on Sale saving us over sixty percent off our purchase. Kathy is going to be busy doing a lot of sewing the first couple of months we are Fulltiming making the trailer more Homey. 

Figuring the contractors would still be working I suggested going to Wendy’s for one of their salad dinners for supper since it has been quite a while. The surprise here was when the manager asked if we were seniors and we saved nearly twenty percent on our meals. 

By the time we arrived at the apartment it looked like the contractors were finished as we watched them piling into a vehicle to go for supper. We were pleasantly surprised to find the water turned back on in the apartment but unfortunately halfway through the 6 o’clock News the Hammer Drill started again. Hopefully that was the last of that noise we’ll hear for this project. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Noisy Day With Setbacks And Gains.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

This was another sleep in morning due to the lack of it during the normal sleeping hours. Either way I was dragging this morning but we were sitting down for breakfast by 8:30. This was a day that certain things just couldn’t wait any longer. After breakfast we both sat at the computers for a few minutes with coffees in hand to finish waking up and accomplish our morning reading. As soon as we were dressed Kathy started doing more sorting and packing while I started sorting laundry. 

There was one big surprise that we were not happy about. At 9:30 the contractors started using Hammer Drills downstairs that were as loud as the Jackhammer they used last week. This time we had not been notified they were doing it today which is a normal formality. The noise was enough to give us both headaches but unless we could find someplace to go we were stuck with it. 

The laundry room was barely busy when I arrived so it was easy to get the clothes in the washers. Upstairs Kathy had already made a pile of clothes to be hauled out to the truck. The only difference between last week and today is that the contractors would hammer for a while then stop before repositioning themselves and starting the noise all over again. 

Shortly after lunch I went downstairs to start folding the clothes that had been in the dryers for an hour. I wasn’t happy when I opened both dryers to find the clothes damp in one and still totally wet in the other. The one dryer has been repaired four times in the last month alone. All I could do was find other dryers to use. While I was again waiting for the clothes to dry I was on the phone with Coinamatic about their machines. I’ll be getting a refund in the mail and they’ll be sending another repairperson to fix the machines but that doesn’t give me my lost time back. 

By the time I had everything folded and back to the apartment Kathy had filled more boxes and bins that needed to be delivered to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit. With the continuing sound of the Hammer Drill downstairs we didn’t hesitate to drive to Guardian Storage immediately this afternoon. Due to how well organized our unit is we were only there minutes and everything was in its proper spot. Before leaving we even collected some of our mail that is finally going to our new mailing address. 

Last week we noticed gas and fuel prices at the Pioneer Gas Stations lower that we’d seen them here in ages but didn’t have time to stop. Prices of course rose again but we waited. After leaving the storage yard this afternoon when I saw the price of Diesel advertised even lower at $0.759 a liter ($2.873 a US gallon) we stopped in and filled both the tanks on the truck. It’s been seven years since we saw fuel this low in Ontario

By the time I’d fueled up it was after 5:00 and we were tired and hungry so we stopped at Taco Bell to have supper. We were home on time to see the 6 o’clock news but the sound of the Hammer Drills didn’t stop until 6:30. Here is hoping they won’t be back tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Going In The Right Direction.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Try as I might my night’s sleep was extremely broken but I was sitting at my computer before 7:00 this morning. Of course my absence affects Kathy’s sleep as well and we had finished our breakfast by 8:00. We did spend the remainder of our time home catching up on our reading as there was nothing I could accomplish on Kathy’s new computer until we purchased a new Microsoft Office Program. 
Tyler (Black) backhanding his first goal.
By 10:30 we were once again heading for the New Belle River Arena to watch our grandson Tyler play hockey. Our daughter Karen dampened our enthusiasm when she mentioned the team Tyler’s team would be facing had last beaten the team that Tyler faced yesterday 8 to 1. Since Tyler’s coach had left instruction that he should play defense that is what the assistant coach did yesterday but not today. He set Tyler loose as center where he scored his usual hat trick of three goals. Today’s game kept everyone on the edge of their seats with most people walking out with sore throats from all the screaming. In the end the other team just barely won with a last minute goal beating Tyler’s team 6 to 5. 

On our way home we stopped at KFC where we used a coupon to have our supper for lunch. This also gave us time to warm up and just to relax for a bit. 
About to make his second goal.
As mentioned earlier we had to return to Staples so we chose the outlet closer to our home where we explained about the new computer and the need for the Microsoft Office Program. When Paul told us the other store should have offered us the program at a discount because we’d purchased the computer we were more than upset. However to make up for the other store’s incompetence he first applied his employee discount on the product then gave us the discount we should have gotten on top of that. That ended up being over a forty dollar savings to us and some good PR for his store. 
Another backhanded goal for a Hat-trick..
Since we were still satisfied from our lunch we needed to walk around Staples for a while before going next door to Walmart. We got additional walking in there as well as Kathy purchasing some personal products while we were there. 
Not as bad a loss as yesterday.
Back at the apartment I spent another hour adding the Microsoft Office Program, fine tuning a few other settings and rebooting Kathy’s new laptop numerous times so everything worked the way it should. As I’m writing this post she is busy catching up on her bookwork that she couldn’t do without her laptop. For our lunch/supper all we ate was a bowl of soup. With less than ten weeks before we officially become Fulltimers there is still a lot to accomplish. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

What A Day This Turned Out To Be.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After our usual morning routines we headed over to the New Belle River Arena to watch our grandson Tyler play hockey for 11:15. However when we got to the arena there was a notice saying the game had been rescheduled for an hour later. Tyler’s team was playing shorthanded as some of the more experienced players were away for family related reasons. It reflected in the score with the opposing team being the only one with any points on the board. 
Tyler (Black) against the boards with the puck.
Even though our outside temperature today would be the high temperature for Ontario 63 F (17 C) the 45 mph wind gusts chilled you to the bone as well as practically knocking you off your feet. We had soup to warm ourselves up once we’d gotten home for a late lunch. 
Tyler making one of many failed attempts to score today.
By mid-afternoon we called Staples to see when we could pick up Kathy’s new computer. After checking they said it was ready that all of her files had been transferred over from the old hard-drive. When we got there they basically handed us the new laptop in the box and said everything was good. At home Kathy started cooking supper in the Crock Pot while I started to organize her new laptop. I spent nearly an hour looking through any file location I could see without finding Kathy’s files. Kathy even gave it a try with no luck before we called Staples. We had to drive all the way back across town where the tech found the file in a folder, in a folder in another folder that we had been unable to access. He then created a shortcut on the desktop so we could find it again. If we had purchased this computer at SX Video everything would have been set up to look the way it had been on the old computer with no hair pulling guess work. 
The score was not in favor of Tyler's team.

I have since spent all evening working to transfer Kathy’s files where she will be able to use them. There are still a few programming issues to work out but we’re working on them. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

No Choice At Making Secondary Accomplishments.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

It’s strange that in the back of your mind when you know something is slated to happen in the near future that your mind tries to get ahead of it. That’s what happened causing us to both be out of bed and having breakfast before 8:00 this morning. We finished breakfast early and then had our coffees at the computers. When 9:00 came and went in quiet we thought that the notice we’d received yesterday was a false alarm. However when the clock hit 9:09 and the repetitive sound of the jackhammer started echoing through our apartment we knew it was time to leave. As I’ve said recently the new building owners are making lots of changes to the building and one was converting a former storage room directly below our apartment into a Bachelor Apartment. To do that they needed to break through the concrete floor to run the utilities to the new apartment. Our taking an early leave was not really an inconvenience this morning but a little push to get on our way to running errands that had to be done. 

Our first stop was to SX Video in Essex to retrieve Kathy’s now dead laptop. Unfortunately we arrived before their 10:00 opening time so we had a slight wait. In that short time I met Jim another former coworker who also used to live near my old home some twenty years ago. When I told him and his wife what Kathy and I were doing the first things out of their mouths was “We want to do that”. After they left I spoke with Dillon who explained everything he did to try and revive Kathy’s laptop. He was also surprise since that brand is noted to be the best in the industry. For it to last just over two years then fry the Motherboard was a shock to him. 

Now we had another drive to Staples where we dropped off the old laptop so that Kathy’s files can be transferred over to the new laptop she purchased last night. They said if everything went smoothly they be calling us later this afternoon. We are still waiting for that phone call. 

Not wanting to return to a noisy apartment we stopped at Home Sense where Kathy found new silicon cooking tongs but when she saw the long line to the checkouts thought she’d just pass on them. Since it was past 11:00 we went to Burger King and had two chicken sandwiches for five dollars. Feeling recharged we drove over to Pier 1 Imports just to look around. Next we drove to Home Outfitters where the simple cooking aids that Kathy was looking for were priced as if they were gold. I suggested going to the Zehr’s Supper Store which is a grocery store with some basic household items people can use. Would you believe they had everything Kathy had been looking for at a fraction of the cost the other stores wanted to charge. Heck we even got some groceries while we were there. 

We finally headed back to the apartment at 2:30 and it was nice and quiet so we started getting caught up on our online reading. At 3:30 the jackhammer started again. We stuck it out until nearly 4:00 before going over to the Michigan Diner on Manning Road. They have the best fish and chips in the area. We stayed away until after 5:00 which was the time the noise was supposed to end. 

Today the temperature broke the 50 F (10 C) mark when only last weekend we were closer to the 0 F (-18 C) mark. The wind however has been ridiculous whistling through the poor seals in the windows. This evening listening to the News we had to raise the volume on the television because the 40 + mph winds were rattling the winds so badly. We hope to hear that Kathy’s new laptop is ready tomorrow plus we hope to do some more hauling. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
