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.

More Organizing, Setting Up and Pizza On The Grill.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

With the temperatures only going into the upper 50’s last night we only closed the Roof Vents and our Sliding Windows. When I got out of bed minutes before 8:00 I barely had time to get the Window Shades up and breakfast started when Kathy came downstairs. She hadn’t looked at the clock until she was about to have her morning Coffee. Her comment was “No wonder I still feel tired.”

That didn’t stop us from trying to get On-Line but after repeated failed attempts, that made up my mind that I had to work on the Antenna for the WeBoost today. Since we weren’t getting too far on the Computers we switched to the Telephone. We called the Windsor Eye Institute where Kathy is presently scheduled to have Cataract Surgery at the end of next month. Having it done in the Office rather then in the Hospital adds a lot to the cost. Since we both need the procedure this year we can both get it done in Hospital cheaper then only one of us in the Office. That also means saving more money for future travels. Kathy’s new appointment dates are now a week earlier.

We’ve mentioned that since we have moved back into our Home how we have been having problems finding things that were not put back in their original locations. Kathy has been going through the Closet, Dresser Drawers, the Linen Closet and the Clothing Cupboard to get them back the way they were. Today she was going through the Kitchen Counter and Appliance Garage.

Anyone who has ever owned a Home will remember taking pride in how well it looked not only inside but outside as well. At Wildwood Golf and RV Park the Seasonal RVers as well as the Park Models are allowed to dress up their Sites if they so choose. The Park also cuts the Grass on your Site at no extra charge. Remember how that Home Ownership Pride included a nice lawn. Well when the Grass Cutters mow your Site and leave uncut lines of grass in the middle, then trim the edges down to the roots, or run over the Decorative Garden Edging, destroying your hard work, you might decide to cut it yourself.

First thing I did was to find the Signs that I had made before saying “DO NOT MOW” and stuck them along the Front Flower Garden Edging. Then after piling the Mulch away from the Edging that needed to be reset I started my magic. It is amazing what a Short-Handled Sledge along with a Block of Wood will do to reshape Dirt and straighten the Edging. Fifteen Minutes later there was no sign of any damage.

Just as I dug out our Electric Lawnmower I could here the big Grass Cutting Machines off in the distance. It took Ten Minutes to mow the Grass, Five Minutes to edge it without cutting into the roots, a Minute to blow the cuttings out of the Flowerbeds and off the Patio. Zero Minutes of Repairs necessary.

Since it was past noon Kathy called me in for lunch. She was shocked when she reached in the Loaf of Bread that we purchased the other day to see it already Moldy. Like Florida our area is noted for its High Humidity and we’ve had a lot of Rain here lately. Simple fix, she defrosted a couple of Hamburger Buns for our Sandwiches. We’ll be freezing our Bread for the rest of the summer.

After lunch I walked our Trash to the Recycle and Trash Area of the Park. On the return I saw that Russ was finally getting his new Trailer delivered.

I brought out the Closed Container from our Garden Shed that we had stored our Solar Patio Lights in and was surprised how dirty they appeared. Using a couple of Buckets, I had to wash and rinse the Lenses making them look like new.

Hugh stopped over for an afternoon visit. Even though we were sitting under our Gazebo talking, it was hard to hear because the Grass Cutting Machines were cutting nearby Sites. The Humidex felt like 90 F (32 C) this afternoon so the rest was welcoming. Even Kathy came outside to sit in the Shade with the cool breeze blowing. We also managed to get our other Lawn Ornaments up but not all the Solar Lights.

Being in the Heat wore us down quickly and by 5:00 we were getting hungry. Not wanting to heat up the Trailer by cooking inside Kathy suggested we have Pizza for supper. It didn’t take long for the Weber to cook the store-bought Chicken Primavera Pizza to perfection and it was quite tasty.

After installing more of the Solar Lights, I located the WeBoost Antenna but not the Extra SMI Cable. Guess what didn’t get installed today? I’ll try again tomorrow because not being able to connect to sites or leave Comments is not working for us.

Since the Broken Wire to our 12 Volt Plug was repaired at the Jayco Repair Center we were able to get some “Over The Air” television this evening but nothing with Local News. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

You've never paid for a tire.


  1. Having trouble commenting for some reason. Hope you get your WeBoost fixed. It's frustrating not to be a good signal. I see you have the same gardeners I have!!

  2. I totally understand how frustrating no Internet is. Hope you find the cable tomorrow. Jim is so glad he had his cataracts removed. Good luck Kathy.
