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.

Somber News, A Tentative Repair Date, Wally Shopping and Comments On Kathy’s Observations.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Around 5:00 this morning our peaceful sleep was interrupted by the drum like sound of rain on our roof. After only a few brief moments the sound of silence returned and so did our sleep. That was enough of an interruption in our sleep to make us sleep past 8:30 this morning which was not what we wanted.

Breakfast went well with the discussion of where we intended to plant the flowers given to us by our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa on Monday. With the high temperatures that we’ve been experiencing the last few days my constant watering of the plants was all that was keeping them alive.

Since we were expecting a visit from Mary this morning there was additional packing required before her arrival as well as other inside choirs. I was outside moving things around so that I could plant our gifted flowers where they would have a better chance of survival.

It was at that time our neighbour Ted whose wife Eileen had suffered a Stroke the other day pulled up in his driveway. As soon as he saw me he began to weep. Eileen passed away around 7:00 this morning at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit from bleeding on the brain. They had spoken about this moment long ago and neither of them wanted a funeral. Even with that he still has lots to take care of in the next few days. I’ll continue watching over their trailer until he returns some time next week. We'll still keep them both in our prayers.

Once I had gotten the flowers planted and cleaned up the patio I was just about to move the truck when Mary from Healthy Heals showed up. Since Kathy has Diabetes and has problems with her feet Mary comes to our Home and treats Kathy’s problems and it is covered by our Health Care Provider. As soon as Mary had left we had a late lunch.

As soon as we’d eaten I made a phone call to speak with Stephanie at Leisure Trailer but could only leave a voice message. It took nearly an hour for her to return my call because she had called Jayco to find out what the delay was on our parts. Jayco assured her they had just shipped the last part out yesterday and it should be arriving in the next couple of days. Stephanie explained that coordinating all the repairs at the same time we are probably looking at the first week in August. It’s a good thing we are not planning on going anywhere until it is fixed.

Once we knew that information Kathy said we needed to get some groceries. Since we have been back in Ontario we thought that our repairs would be really soon so we’ve been holding back on buying the food we’ve had in stock. Now knowing when we can expect these repairs tells us we can stock our freezer a little more.

We headed out to Walmart in Amherstburg. We not only stocked our freezer but our pantry and we picked up our supper from the Deli Section of the store. 
Cole slaw, Potato Salad and Chicken for supper.
This evening I placed an order online with Amazon and made certain that the Shipping Address was correct before hitting the final Submit button. Printing out the confirmation Kathy noticed half the address was missing. Try as much as I could to make the correction On-line it would not take. It took some time to finally find a Phone Number for Amazon and when I explained the problem the representative had no problem correcting it and sending me a new confirmation.

We were quite happy to see the comments to “Kathy’s Personal View Points About RVing”. We were even more surprised that there was further mention of it in other Blogs that didn’t leave a comment. Every time Kathy talks to somebody about our Lifestyle she does it with such passion that they can tell how much she loves it and has sparked an interest in our style of traveling amongst Non-RVers

We hope that the showers we are currently having will help to bring our temperatures back to a more normal range. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
