Helping Karen With Her Chores and A Day Of Laughs.

Our Location today is at Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After having a restless night’s sleep on Friday Kathy did something she hardly ever does, she took a Tylenol to help ease her aches from the last few days of working out at our Site. I had been up and doing my reading on the Computer for an hour before she finally woke up. With Sunday being known to be a day of rest she was allowed to catch up on her sleep.

We had the chance to talk to Karen when we went upstairs and enjoyed our Coffees out on the Deck. The temperature was already in the low Sixties with very little breeze so it was more then comfortable. Her plans were to get her yard set up for summer along with all her other chores. She asked if I could do just a couple of things to help her out. Since I had already seen that our area was expecting Afternoon Thunderstorms it was better to help Karen with her chores then use a bunch of Gasoline for only a couple hours of work at our Site.

Knowing that I was very capable she asked that I remove a Plant that didn’t make it through the winter while she was busy cutting the grass. I then helped Tyler Summerize the Snowblower since there was no way to drain the gas we added Stabilizer and ran it for a minute to get it into the Carburetor.

Even Kathy got into helping take the Winter Pool Cover off. Tyler and I were on the lead edge while Kathy and Karen brought up the tail so that it wouldn’t get snagged on anything. The one most excited about that was Sanford because he considers it his Personal Swimming Pool. When we didn’t put the Ladder in the water he just stood on the Deck whimpering.

It was nearly 2:00 when Kathy made sandwiches for a late lunch, that we ate out on the Deck. Made us almost feel like we were back on our Site at the Park.

It seemed like a day that some of us would have something to laugh about ourselves by the end of the afternoon. Karen was in one of her Multitasking Modes when she was outside cleaning the Pool Cover when Kathy noticed there were Eggs boiling on the Stove. Karen had started them and got sidetracked about opening the Pool.

After I moved her multi-tier water Fountain I went to move their Garden-Hose not realizing that the Nozzle didn’t shut off. Luckily the temperature wasn’t too bad for an Outside Shower.

It was close to 4:00 when Karen and Kathy went inside to make Coffee so we could have a break. As Karen was coming out the Patio Doors a Queen Bee was buzzing around so she quickly slid the Screen Door shut. It was at that moment that Kathy, who was wearing her Sunglasses and carrying Two Coffee Cups found out the Screen Door was no longer open when she wore more then she would drink of her Coffee.

Sitting outside to drink our Coffees we weren’t there long when we started getting a Lightning display to our west. We’re certain that there was heavy Rain in Windsor but we only got a lite drizzle.

It was nearly 5:30 when Greg fired up his Charcoal Barbeque to cook supper. With the sudden drop in our Outside Temperature the food was not cooking. He then had to do it the easy way and use the Propane GrillEven though it was past 7:00 when we had supper it was all delicious and satisfying.

With Clear but Cooler Weather forecasted for tomorrow we will be busy. Thanks for following along, feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

You've ever towed something with a motorcycle.


  1. How much longer before you get your home back?

  2. I cringed yesterday as I watched several people buy Jayco RV's on television. Hoping you hear something soon.

  3. We own a Jayco travel trailer and are quite happy with it. Of course there are other brands out there that have a different quality to them. We toured the factory and saw the assembling crew. Almost all Mennonites and they were on piecework, meaning they each had to do their daily quantity and when finished they could go home. That explains some of our issues with quality workmanship. Maybe things have changed now. Who knows.
