Wet Day Doing Errands, Making Supper Together and An Early Start.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

We were lucky to have closed our Sliding Windows before going to Bed last night. By 8:00 this morning our Patio was being freshly cleaned thanks to the Rain that was coming down. It didn’t last too long because the Golfers never missed a stroke out on the Greens.

We managed to get some Computer reading in this morning but the Cloudy Skies seemed to be reflecting inside by putting a damper on our moods. Since there had been a number of things missed on the Shopping List that was left Home last evening we figured we could rectify that this afternoon. 

Eating according to our Activity Levels we shared a Chicken Sandwich, a small bit of Potato Chip Crumbs and even a couple of Mandarin Oranges.

Shortly after noon we were on our way to Amherstburg making our first stop at our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa’s house. It was their 22nd Wedding Anniversary yesterday and they decided to go Camping just the Two of Them at Willow-Wood Park and leave their Two Teenage Boys at home. Being just Three Miles away also meant they weren’t expecting any problems with the boys. I had something that they can use on some of their Camping Trips that I left behind.

We drove to Walmart where after walking around the store and looking at prices for exercise we got the rest of the groceries we missed last night.

Next we went to Dollarama where I was certain I would be stocking up on Inexpensive Batteries for our Solar Patio Lights. Would you believe it was cheaper to buy them at Walmart?

Since Kathy hadn’t found what she was looking for at either store, she had me drop her off at the Dollar Tree while I returned to Walmart for the Batteries.

We were back Home by 2:30 and because it was still lightly Raining at that time we started working at getting things ready for supper. While Kathy boiled the Corned Beef, I was busy chopping up the Celery and Onions. Once the Corned Beef was resting Kathy started boiling the Cabbage.

I had a chance to fire up my Computer to start searching for the SMA Coupling that I had seen On-Line yesterday. I could locate the Sites but could not connect to any of them. Our MiFi would not allow me to do what was necessary.

I went back to the Cutting Board to clean up and cube the Corn Beef. Next came chopping up the Cabbage. After everything was mixed Kathy divided it in Half, some for tonight’s supper and the rest for another meal. She seasoned it before sautéing tonight’s share, it turned out perfect. We even had a Date Square and some Blackberries for dessert all gauged according to our Activity Level. 

After the Dishes were washed and put away Kathy suggested I get an early start writing our Blog, after having struggled to publish it last night. Everything was going well until I heard our neighbours Mike and Pat who are Newbie RVers at their Trailer. I wanted to be certain they knew about the Water Leak. After I showed Joe the Leak yesterday he had the Office notify them and since they didn’t have their Water Heater on and had the Water turned off. They Thanked me for my attention and will look at it more tomorrow.

Hopefully we can get On-Line tomorrow so we order the components to can get our MiFi working properly. 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 go to a nice restaurant and take pictures of the food.


  1. It's so frustrating not to be able to get online. My works well at 5:00 am and 11:00 pm.

  2. That would be so frustrating not to be able to get online for sure! Ours is slow sometimes but so far hasn't stopped us here at home. Dinner looked wonderful, nice that you two work together. :)
