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.

Cold But Relaxing Dealership Docking, Visiting Our Friend and Future RVers.

Our Location today is Lakeshore, Ontario, Canada. 

By the time we got to bed last night we were both chilled to the bone. Instead of sitting at the table wearing our hoodies and shivering uncontrollably we ran the Electric Fireplace in order to take the dampness out of the air. If we unexpectedly stuck any part of our bodies out from under the covers during the night, the harsh chill had us immediately covering back up. 

Even with my back bothering me by 7:00 this morning I convinced it that I needed more sleep and stayed covered over for another hour. The first thing after getting in the living room was to restart the Electric Fireplace and run the Furnace through a single cycle just so that I wasn’t seeing my breath while getting things ready for breakfast. 

Since we were told not to use our long slide it is fortunate that I have a long reach and was able to put the Water Kettle on the stove while reaching over top of our island. Kathy seemed to sense the chill disappearing from the air and soon joined me to have breakfast which consisted of a hot cup of Coffee/Tea and hot Cereal as a way of warming us from the inside out. 

It was strange waking up to only the noise of cars passing on the expressway. Since Holy Friday is considered a Holiday many places give their employees the day off. With no activity taking place in the yard we were able to relax a bit longer without feeling rushed. We started out getting our Canadian Cell Phones and Cordless House Phones charged up so we could use them. In the past we had kept them charged while we were away and it cost us on Roaming Fees because they would start locating Cell Towers. Now we wait until we get back in Ontario and we have no problems and no charges. We spent extra time reading but we are having problems.

Sky was clear but windy/
As you noted there were No Pictures in last night’s Blog. We are presently still using our Verizon MiFi that we got while we were in Yuma Arizona. The plan we are on allows us to use it in the U.S.A., Canada and Mexico but what Verizon doesn’t tell you is how SSllloooowwwww it becomes when you cross those borders. It takes up to five minutes just to get onto our Blog then an additional five minutes for each blog we try to read and we are lucky if we see a single picture on those Blogs. Once we are settled back at Wildwood Golf and RV Park and are connected onto our Unlimited Cable WiFi I’ll have to go back and add the pictures I had planned on using in the first place. 

After bundling up against the cold wind I used an Extension Ladder that was leaned against the building to verify that the plastic bag I’d applied yesterday over the broken Skylight was still in place. The temperature was still only 41 F (5 C) at noon so as soon I was back inside we had some nice hot soup to warm us up.

Kathy cleaned the dishes while I changed my clothes. By 1:00 we were on our way to visit with our friend Kathie who we haven’t seen since October. Were we surprised when we walked into her apartment. She had completely repainted the place, replaced most of the furniture to match her tastes and she has a new Furkid to keep her company. Since we were gone before Rollie came into Kathie’s life he was very suspicious of us and protective of her. By the time we were ready to leave he had been bring his toys over to us to play with him. Kathie did show me a few things on her furniture that were broken to see if they are repairable. With some tools and an imagination anything is repairable. 
Rollie wondering what I'm doing with that camera.
It was already 5:00 when we started heading back for Home and since this is Good Friday we decided to stop at the Michigan Diner on Manning Road for Fish and Chips because they make the best ones in the area. The parking lot was packed so when I saw people leaving I sent Kathy inside to get a table while I parked. It was just as packed inside but we were immediately seated. After ordering our meals the couple next to us that were waiting for their bill started talking to us. When we asked about their winter they questioned why we were asking. When we told them we had just returned from Arizona and we were Fulltime RVers their response was that’s what they have wanted to do and the last of their kids had just moved out of their house. We think we might be seeing more Future Fulltimers the way things are going. 
The Sun was trying to get through the clouds.
Back Home while Kathy did a few chores inside I prepped the Truck for towing, filled our Fresh Water Tank and stored our Water Hoses and Filters. Hopefully we’ll be leaving here early tomorrow because we have some more visiting to do. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.
