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.

Worrisome Call, Freezing Morning, Wet Weather and Warming Overnight.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

We were more then tired when we went to bed last night so along with the cold temperatures we easily fell asleep. Just after 2:00 in the morning our house phone started ringing so naturally I got up to answer. The outside temperature was 41 F (5 C) but with the cold North Wind blowing it felt colder. I could see my breath as I answered the phone. Our grandchildren have our phone number and know that if they need help to call us at any time. On the phone line I could hear a young woman screaming hysterically to someone else that her nose was broken and she needed help. There was traffic noise in the background along with another person speaking to her before the line was disconnected.

Our Home phone is a Turbo Hub which is the equivalent of a Cell Phone on Steroids. We can be anywhere in Canada and if someone calls our Home Phone we’ll get the call. The only problem with this system is that there is no Caller-ID so we couldn’t tell who had called. It was probably a wrong number but the fact that we have a couple of granddaughters in that age group that could have been out with friends left us both unable to fall back to sleep for a couple of hours.

Also the fact that I felt frozen while answering the phone didn’t help. To top it off we suddenly started having Rain pounding on our roof with such an intensity it sounded like we were in a drum. It was worse than the Wind we had the other night. We would just about to fall back to sleep when the rain would once again start coming down hard causing us to partially wake up. At breakfast we recounted what I had heard on the phone.

Every year there is a Happy New Year celebration here at Wildwood Golf and RV Park in the month of May for people who are registered for the season. No outside guests allowed for this event. (We attended last year and had great time.) The only thing it costs us is $12.50 each for our meal which is catered by the 19th Hole Restaurant to the Clubhouse and the costs of entertainment and door prizes are paid for by the Park. With them going on sale at 11:00 I bundled up and went to the Clubhouse early. Thinking I would look overdressed when I walked in the Clubhouse I was glad to see most of the people there dressed the same way. When they started selling the tickets it only took twenty minutes for them to be sold out but we have ours. 
All day Rain.
With the continually falling rain and cold temperature soup with cheese and crackers was a good option for lunch.

While Kathy busied herself with chores inside I sorted the laundry and headed off to the Park Laundry Room. With the increase of all new Washers and Dryers it makes it so much easier doing this chore. Once I had transferred everything to the dryers I walked back to the trailer with the delicates that have to be hung to dry. Kathy and I spoke briefly while I dried the dishes she was washing. Before going back to fold the clothes I drained our waste tanks.

We again kept it light for supper I grilled a couple of Johnsonville Brats while Kathy made a Chopped Kale Salad to go with them.

The rain is continuing to fall making certain everything is well watered for its springtime growth. The Temperatures are supposed to rise overnight even with more rain falling. Tomorrow will be comfortable before we head back into the freeze on Tuesday. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Joke of the Day

You know you're getting old when the gleam in your eye

is from the sun hitting your bifocals.


  1. That is a scary way to be woken up! We also have a home phone, through Rogers, that goes everywhere with us but fortunately we do have caller idea. The park you are in looks nice and hopefully the weather improves for you soon!

  2. Glad it wasn't a family emergency but would be a nasty call to get.

  3. Never fun to have the phone ring in the middle of the night. Glad to read it was a wrong number.
