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.

No Connection, Good Visit, Sad News and Fond Farewell.


Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

With the Temperature only dropping to the mid 50’s last night we once again slept with the Windows and Roof Vents open. We were both wide awake ready for breakfast by 8:00 this morning after having a wonderful night’s sleep. Since we weren’t going to be that busy breakfast was only Strawberries over a cup of Yogurt with an Apple Cider Hot Drink.  With our appointment not scheduled until 1:00 this afternoon we didn’t have to rush. We spent very little time on the Computers for the simple reason that we couldn’t get On-Line to check on anything we normally read.

When it came time for an early lunch Kathy cleaned up some Rice and a few Perogies to go with the grilled Tuna Patties she made. Another lite-weight meal for lunch.

We headed in to Windsor to the Devonshire Retirement Home to visit my aunt Anna and uncle Bob. Even though I managed to call and wish them Birthday Wishes on both their Birthdays we haven’t seen them since before we went south last fall. With the weather being comfortable today Anna was outside the door waiting for our arrival. After signing in as guests we went up to the 3rd Floor Common Room. It would be similar to a large Living Room where the residents and guest can visit without going to the Suites.

Once Bob joined us they remembered that we had issues with our Trailer last fall and asked how that went. (They use a computer for E-Mails but don’t follow Blogs.) They were amazed that we were having so many issues on a Brand that years ago was setting the bar for standards in RVs.

They started telling me about Anna’s brother, my uncle Oliver also being a resident but that he was having Health Issues. Just then the Elevator Door opened and my cousin Charlene who was crying came over to talk to all of us. Her dad has what is called MDS which is like Leukemia but affects a person similar to Alzheimer, and was being treated with Chemo-Therapy but It’s not working and the Doctors have said he won’t be with us much longer.

We all went down to the 2nd Floor Common Room where Charlene’s husband was trying to talk with Oliver. He didn’t remember his own daughter or sister but when we talked about things Forty Years ago he seemed to remember little bits about it. It was sad to see him like that and seeing the pain on his daughter’s face wishing there was something she could do. Something a Caregiver or anyone that has lost a loved one goes through.

We left shortly after 4:00 but were starting to feel the effects of eating lightly. Seeing a newly built Wendy’s we went there for supper. It was like we could not break the cycle of eating lite and both ordered one of their Salads to eat.

We stopped at the West-End Walmart to get groceries and other things we need on our site. We got all the groceries but had to go to Canadian Tire for the other things.

We were Home just before 7:00 to a warm Trailer. Not being able to see The Weather Network for our area we could only go according to the wall Thermometer which read 88 F (31 C). With the lite breeze once the door was open it helped cool things down.

Around 7:30 our neighbour Hugh came home so we went over to wish him Safe Travels and exchange contact information. Hugh is 85 years young and decided to sell his Trailer and move to Winnipeg to live with his Daughter’s Family. He appreciated the gesture and hopes to see us heading back towards Florida in the near future.

We can only hope to get this published. I’ll try to get the new Wilson Antenna relocated on the Roof and run the Heavier Coaxial Cable so when our Connectors arrive we’ll have a better MiFi Signal. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Sorry to hear about Oliver. When someone is that uncomfortable and exhibiting that memory loss so as not to recognize anyone, it is difficult for everyone.

  2. I put one of those Wilson WeBoost antennas on our house on the farm. Not cheap. I can literally see the Verizon cell tower 5 miles away and the WeBoost barely gives an extra bar. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd rate it a 5.
