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.

Tickets Purchased, Ice Cream Social, Trip To Tecumseh and Nearly All Packed

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Sleeping with the windows open at night listening to the crickets serenading you to sleep, just how can you not sleep soundly. When I got up shortly after 8:00 the temperature was comfortable but there was hardly any breeze and the humidity was high.  Getting things ready for breakfast has once again become a challenge due to the fact that most of the Silverware has been packed away along with the containers that hold our Coffee and Tea

After eating breakfast, getting our morning reading on the Computers completed along with the morning chores it was then time for the packing once again so we got started. By the time noon hour arrived the last three boxes we had on hand had been filled, sealed and loaded in the backseat of the truck. Lunch was Toasted Raisin Bread keeping it lite. 

As soon as we were finished eating we gathered the books that Kathy had to exchange and headed to the Park Book Exchange Library. This has really been a good source of reading material for Kathy. Once she had the same amount of books as what she brought in to exchange she went and sat in the Air-Conditioned Hall while I brought her selection out to the car. 

 I then went and stood in line by the front door waiting for the doors to open. Even though the notice had said doors open at 1:00 after the line got to ten they opened them early. They were selling tickets for a Steak Dinner with all the trimmings and entertainment for only $15.00 each. We attended last year and it was great. It is however only open to Seasonal Park Residents only, not even their families.

Before leaving the Hall we walked to the other end where the volunteers were running the Ice Cream Social. For $2.00 each you get two scoops of Ice Cream and at the end of the season all profits are donated to local charities. Since this is a long weekend in Canada there were a lot of the Weekend Campers coming in to share this event. 

Back Home we packed a few more things from our closet as well as food from the Fridge and Freezer into our insulated shopping bags to load into the truck. It was shortly after 1:00 when we were heading out the gate for our daughter Karen’s in Tecumseh. She had offered us a bit of space to store what we had to remove from the trailer including food products. 

It wasn’t until we got to County Road 42 that we were reminded that Manning Road was closed off at the E.C. Rowe Expressway so we had a detour. As soon as we turned on Lesperance Road I could see a Freight Train stopped across the road. As we got closer most of the cars closer to the tracks were turning around to find another way. Before reaching the tracks we went around a block in the subdivision and went back to County Road 42 where we had to drive all the way to Lauzon Parkway so we could cross those tracks using the Overpass.

After we arrived at our daughter Karen’s house Kathy went in to see Karen but couldn’t find anyone in the house to talk to. Greg was sleeping on the couch and she didn’t want to disturb him.  Being as we have our own key and know the garage door code we unloaded everything including things that went in the Fridge and Freezer and were back on the road in less then Ten Minutes. We guess we will have to visit another day! 

We stopped at Taco Bell where a potty call was answered. It was after 4:00 by this time so we shared a Value Meal which is two Tacos, an order of French Fries and a Soft Drink. It wasn’t filling but just enough to ease the cravings.

The train tracks in Windsor were still blocked so we drove to Central Avenue where we were able to cross the Tracks and the Expressway by using its overpasses. Our destination was Guardian Storage where we went to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit. We had to move our Wheeled Clothing Racks so we could reach our Luggage Set along the rear wall. We also left a few things that came from the trailer. The way we have things set up we were only there about five minutes. 

Back Home we started with the largest piece of Luggage and started packing the clothes from the closet. The reason we are emptying the closet is because there is a problem with the Cap of the trailer so it is being replaced. We’ll be glad when we will be back in our Home. It was past 9:00 this evening when we finally called it a day. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

The World's Great Proverbs

Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone.


  1. Gosh ... seems like you are practically emptying the entire rig. Hope all goes well with your repairs.

  2. I wouldn't think you'd have to empty the closet even messing with the front cap.

  3. You two have been very busy...I am getting tired just reading. Again, hope things go well with all the repairs.
