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.

Giving The Doctor Advice, Money Savings, Charitable Meal and Birthday Wishes.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Like it or not when the alarm went off at 7:30 this morning we had to give up our happy place between the sheets and immediately get ready to head out the door. Our destination was Kathy’s family Doctor’s Office in Windsor which meant not having breakfast before we left. Each time Kathy goes to see Dr. Sherman she has Blood Tests to see how her Diabetes is doing. If Kathy has to fast I won’t eat without her so we both fast, besides it’s not like I can’t wait.

As usual Kathy sees her doctor first before she gets the script to say what tests the blood will be used for. Kathy’s Doctor gets upset that Kathy does things that she feels are too hard for her to do. Kathy’s response is that she is not going to sit around and waste away. She plans on continuing to push herself as long as she can.

These conversations also gives Dr. Sherman the chance to pick Kathy’s brain on things to do when she herself actually takes some time off. Kathy found out that Dr. Sherman actually visited Sedona this last February but they rented a car and drove around. They didn’t take any Jeep Tours or attend any Balloon Festivals as a fact they didn’t even hike or climb any Mountain Ranges like we did. The Doctor thanked Kathy for the information, told her to keep having fun but warned that she had better not try climbing Mount Everest.

It was nearly 10:00 when we sat down to have our breakfast at A&W. They serve Eggs the way you want, Bacon or Sausage or Both, the kind of Toast you like on real Plates with real Silverware at a reasonable price.

Our next stop was Guardian Storage to pick up our Mail and to get a few things from our Climate Controlled Storage Unit.

We stopped at Princess Auto just to walk around and to get the latest Flyer. Many of the supplies that I have used over the years for our trailers have come from there. The other day the Indicator Switch for our CPAP Inverter stopped lighting up. Looking at the Flyer there was the exact replacement Switch for less then $2.00 where I had paid $6.00 for the same switch in Quartzsite. The Welding Cable that I ran from the Charge Controller in the basement to the Junction Box on the roof was purchased there. The Aluminium Angle Material that I paid dearly for in the Southwest is half the cost here when every few months it goes On Sale. Their next Sale starts tomorrow and they will have twenty-five foot lengths of Plastic Wire Loom priced at what I paid for a five foot length in Quartzsite. It costs us less the ten dollars for our purchases today.

We drove back to the Zehrs Super Store on Walker Road where we picked up a few food stocks, then to Staples for a couple of supplies before heading for Home
Let's go play Ball.
It was after 1:00 by the time we had everything put away and even though we weren’t feeling hungry I insisted we have a bowl of Soup for lunch. The last time we had fasted like that we just skipped lunch and we both had pounding headaches by supper time. That bowl of Vegetable Beef Soup was just what we needed.

When we have a day of heavy exertion like we did on Friday and Sunday we have learned we need a down day for our bodies to recover. We used the afternoon to get caught up on this morning’s reading on the Computers that we missed out on as well as doing some research. 
Where did time go.
Just before 5:00 we headed over to the Park Clubhouse where there was a Hamburger Sale taking place. This is run by Seasonal Resident Volunteers. The monies raised cover first the costs of supplies but the profits go to Local Charities. Today the place was packed with lots of Grandchildren in attendance. Another change was you could have the ½ Pound Hamburger or a Foot Long Italian Sausage along with the Potato Salad and Condiments. A good deal at Five Dollars each, you get to eat and support a charity at the same time.

As soon as we finished eating we left without much visiting today because we had another stop to make. We were on our way to our daughter Karen’s home in Tecumseh. We were there to help wish our granddaughter Kylla a Happy Birthday. After having just gotten off her shift from the Assembly Line at the Chrysler Minivan Plant she didn’t feel like having her picture taken. We had an enjoyable visit with everyone there as well as an unbelievably delicious piece of Tuxedo Cake

We managed to get Home just as the Sun was about to set. We’ll see what we accomplish tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
