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.

Making Use Of Bad Weather and Christmas In July Dinner.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

After over exerting ourselves in the heat yesterday there was never any doubt that we’d sleep like a couple of rocks. The problem was that these two rocks had a hard time waking up this morning. After opening the Window Shades only to see the cloud filled sky and a few Water Puddles on the Patio and Tonneau Cover we weren’t in too much of a hurry to get back to working on the Patio.

As soon as breakfast was over the first thing I did on the Computer was to check The Weather Network for our area. They basically showed Chances of Thunderstorms for the entire day. Another peek out the window really reinforced their forecast so we made certain we finished all our reading before moving on to other inside chores. 

I was in the process of making data entries when Kathy called me to our late lunch. After having had a lite breakfast, being cooped up inside and that we would be eating supper later then normal Kathy chose to make this a filling lunch. She made some Chicken Noodle Soup, a Ham Sandwich that we shared with Chips and Yogurt covered Blackberries.

Returning to the Computers Kathy reminded me that our old Bicycle Cover we had on our Tandem Bicycle had gotten badly torn so we both started trying to find a replacement on-line. Because our damaged Tandem Bicycle folded for easy transportation we were able to use a regular bike cover on it. Trying to find a cover for a Tandem Bike that does not fold was a nightmare and the one I did find cost nearly as much as the Bike. Kathy found a site that suggested using a Motorcycle Cover instead so after measuring our Tandem Bicycle for its length we were able order one for only $35.00 and it will be delivered here next Friday.

Around 4:00 the sky really opened up and made certain that all our plants were well watered. The Rain lasted until after 5:00 when we finally started getting some Sunlight breaking through the clouds. 

Not sure if the Rain would return we chose to take the car over to Park Clubhouse. With the afternoon Humidex sitting at 100 F (38 C) the moment Kathy stepped outside she had a hard time to breath. We were lucky to be able to park close and the Air Conditioning was keeping the hall cool. 

Today’s festivity was “Christmas in July” as many RV Parks have these special celebrations at this time of year and decorate for the occasion. We were joined at our table by Jamie and Islay along with John and Eileen. When they asked where we went for the winter and we told them about being “Off the Grid” in the deserts of the Southwest they started asking a lot more questions about the entire system trying to understand that we were getting our power from the Sun
Islay and Jamie.
After everyone was welcomed Table Numbers were called until everyone had been served their meals. The traditional Turkey, Dressing, Corn, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Cranberries, Dinner Rolls and Salad was served. After everyone was served seconds were offered but knowing there was Cake being served as dessert we passed. We didn’t eat until after 6:30 which is late for us so when we got our meals we totally forgot to take any pictures of the food.

Entertainment was put on by local artist Kid Rick. With the use of Computers these days one person playing a guitar can sound like an entire band but you still need a good voice for singing and Rick did. The dance floor was filled for his first set. Just as we were getting ready to leave on his last set he started playing “Amazed” which was our Wedding Song. It was like we stepped back in time. 
Great sound from "Kid Rick".
The weather will dictate as to what we’ll be doing tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
