It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Early Fall Weather, Word On Our RV Repairs, Dental Appointments, More Vitamins To Go and Wonderful Visit.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

With Colder night time Temperatures and our Warm Bedcover pulled up to our necks it wasn’t hard to sleep in this morning. As soon as you walked in to the living area of the trailer your body was jolted awake by the temperature difference.

As soon as we’d finished eating our breakfast we brought our Coffees over to the Computers so we could do our morning reading at the same time. Looking at our Local Weather it looks like we are already into Fall Weather with our daytime temps being in the Mid-Sixties to Low-Seventies with lots of Rain thrown in for good measure.

Looking at the International Weather Forecast Hurricane Irma appears to be the most powerful Hurricane in history heading towards Florida. To make matters worse there are two more Hurricanes Jose and Katia presently making their way across the Atlantic. They are just strong enough to be called Hurricanes at this present time but are expected to pick up strength in the next few days. Just what the folks in the Southern and Atlantic States need at this time.

Shortly after 10:00 Stephanie from Leisure Trailer called to let us know what is happening with Jayco about the repairs to our trailer. It will be fixed at the Jayco Factory but not until next spring. We will once again be out of our Home for about two weeks. What we have to do is change our plans around. Instead of stopping on our way south we’ll head back east earlier and have the repairs done at that time. We’ll have to schedule the date of our arrival A.S.A.P. because they are already booking repairs on RVs into next February. We’ll be staying in a Hotel not far from the factory so as soon as our Home is repaired we’ll head back to Ontario.

For our deliberately served late lunch Kathy made Salmon Sandwiches to go with the Cole Slaw she had as a side. We did that so we wouldn’t need any snacks this afternoon and after cleaning up we were soon on our way to Amherstburg

With a high of only 66 F (19 C) today we were just comfortable in the car without the A.C. running. The heavy cloud covering was adding a chill to the air but at least the Sun was keeping everything well lit.

Today was our Yearly Dental Check up but Kathy had additional work being done. She lost a crown a few months back and needed some prep work done before. She mentioned that she had been feeling sensitivity to cold and hot to the Dentist today. Taking an X-ray of the tooth a cavity was found so she also had a filling done as well. Besides a cleaning I did a consult to have additional work done before we leave in November. We both managed to get a follow-up appointment for the 20th of this month. 

By the time we were leaving the School-Buses were out dropping off their precious cargo. Instead of following them around we drove over to the Shoppers Drug Mart where Kathy picked up additional supplies she’ll need to bring with us and I managed to get almost all of the remaining Vitamin Pills we’ll need on our trip.

It was past 4:00 so we headed over to McDonalds for supper. With Kathy’s mouth still being numb from the freezing she had quite the time just eating Chicken Nuggets. I chose to have one of their new Angus Beef Burgers

We stopped at Canadian Tire and Dollarama just to look around and to waste some time. Just before 6:00 we headed over to our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa’s house for our weekly visit. Melissa offered us warm drinks because of the cooler temperature today and we appreciated it. We had lots to talk about including their boys Cameron and Matthew being back in school, the sudden change in the weather, the world tension with North Korea and our trailer repairs. As usual we had a wonderful visit filled with laughter.

Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

The World's Great Proverbs

September winds blow soft till the fruit's in the loft.


  1. It look's as though your weather is about like ours here in Tennessee.

  2. No matter what the calendar says it is fall. I am just glad we are dealing with hurricanes and fires. Though I am praying for those in the path to be safe.

  3. Hope they can fix your trailer faster than two weeks! Good grief, it didn't take that long to build it in the first place. :c(
