Sensitive Memories, Home Appointments and Visits.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

We both managed to sleep like a couple of rocks last night but when I kissed Kathy to wake her this morning she wanted More, more time to sleep that is. Being Retired means that we shouldn’t need to set the Alarm to wake us up before we want to. (I shut the Alarm off again this morning.) We are trying to wake earlier so that it won’t be such a shock when we have to use it on Thursday when I go for my first Cataract Surgery.

We had a lite breakfast of English Muffins with Rhubarb as a topping. We both grew up eating it when we were children and carried it into our adult life. We were fortunate to find it in the grocery stores this past spring as well as our son Kevin getting a large bunch from his garden.

We finished our Coffee/Tea at the Computers and started our inside chores by 9:00 because we had people coming this morning. Putting the Computer Stands off to the side really opened up the room. Once I’d packed away the trash I headed outside to move the Truck over to the Overflow Parking Area so our visitors could park right on our Site.

Once the Truck was parked I came back and noticed that a lot of Grass and Weeds were trying to grow in our driveway so I pulled out our Garden Sprayer and gave them a good dose of Vinegar being cautious not to get it on the lawn. Just as I was finishing Mary pulled up.

Mary from Healthy Heals was here to tend to Kathy’s feet. Due to Kathy having Diabetes and our Health Care Coverage this service is covered. Mary also taught me years ago, what to do so while we are away I can tend to Kathy’s feet. She also likes hearing about our travels and dreams of the day that she’ll be able to do things like that.

It was nearly noon when Mary left and as we were tidying up Three Minutes later my sister Anna arrived. We try to get-together at least once a year but with everything we’ve been doing and the fact that she lives in London which is Two Hours away it’s not always easy. With the outside Humidex already at the Century Mark we sat inside so that she could cool down which also gave us time to start catching up on what is happening in her life.

Around 12:30 we took the Escape and headed to the Michigan Diner in Essex for lunch. It’s been a while so we thought we would be different and all ordered Fish and Onion Rings on a Tuesday. That was the first time Anna ordered hers that way and really enjoyed it. Anna also notice a lot of other people around us ordering Fish and Chips rather then the Day’s Specials. It’s that Good.

We were back at the Park before 1:30 and gave Anna a quick little driving tour around so that she could better understand the layout that we often write about. Back Home at our Trailer Anna brought in her new Laptop Case and showed us what she has been up to. She has started making a Family Tree that is starting to look like a Forest. She looked up our Mother’s side of the family, then our Father’s side of the family and adding what information we could add. She also was looking up her Mother-in-law’s family as well as her Father-in-law’s side of the family. Each of those are being researched separately and they each contain a Hundred or more people. We also talked about our Parents and Late Spouses. All three of us, Anna, Kathy and myself have traveled that road and even though it happened a long time ago we still got choked up thinking about those final days. It was past 4:30 when we said our Good Byes with Hugs and Kisses.

It was past 6:30 when Kathy made us each a Chicken Salad Wrap. We ate more out of habit then hunger. We watched a Morgan Freeman Double Feature tonight. Both Movies were about a time that both Kathy and I remembered living through.

Tomorrow we’ve got things to get done before my Cataract Surgery and then Kathy is going to keep you informed about what we are doing until I can see the Computer again. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Getting Started, Errands Turn Into Visits, Great Tasting Ribs, Up On The Roof and Skyrocketing Bill

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Click on the pictures to Enlarge.

Since we’ll be having to set the Alarm early on Thursday morning we thought that by setting it a little ahead of what we are naturally waking up to right now, would help ease us through the transition. The problem with doing that though, is the same as a Pretravel Night, you just toss and turn in anticipation. It also seems that I normally wake ahead of the Alarm so that I can shut it off and simply wake Kathy with a Kiss. I’m far from Prince Charming but it’s like she is getting a more relaxed signal that she has to wake up instead of having to get moving in an instant. 

We didn’t spend too much time drinking our morning Coffees at the Computers because the Humidex was going to be another scorcher and we wanted to get an early start. One of those things was Kathy had to do for me what I did for her, put drops in my Eyes. Neither of us can put drops in our own Eyes so we look after each other.

We also wanted to ride our Tandem Bicycle around the Park for exercise. Things we really like about this Bike is we don’t get separated, we can hear what we are saying to one another and if there is any Gears to be shifted my hands can do so easier then Kathy’s Arthritic Hands can. We got in extra time and distance this morning and were back Home before it really started feeling Hot. 

We needed to run some errands this afternoon including some Grocery Shopping so Kathy decided to finish the last of the Perogies for lunch. With Sour Cream, Bacon Crumbs and Shredded Cheese they always taste wonderful. For dessert we had Clementine Oranges and a Yogurt.

We waited until after my Second Round of Eye Drops before heading out the door shortly after 1:00. With multiple stops planned we rearranged them and stopped at our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa’s in Amherstburg first. They had just gotten home from a long weekend of Camping and were all excited. We had only planned on dropping off a few things and leaving but after they started talking about RVing we had plenty of pointers to give them.

Our next stop was Pharma Choice drug store to pick up my Eyedrops for my upcoming Cataract Surgery. Luckily, there were still some Eyedrops leftover from Kathy’s procedures so we started with them. 

The next stop was at Walmart where I unsuccessfully searched their Hardware Section while Kathy started picking up necessary Groceries that we’ll need to get through the week. We have found it to be easier and most times less expensive to purchase Precooked Spare-Ribs and when we found them today “On Sale” for $6.49 for a Half Rack which feeds the both of us we got Two Packages. 

From there we crossed the road and went to Canadian Tire where I was successful in getting a replacement Barrel Bolt for our Garden Shed. 

Back Home it didn’t take long to store our purchases but it was already past 5:30 so after rewrapping a package of those Spare-Ribs in Foil I set them to cook on our Weber. Kathy had me cut open and clean an Acorn Squash that we shared. By the time the Squash was ready Kathy had plated some Coleslaw, a small piece of Cake for dessert and the Ribs were ready to serve. We used our Forks to cut the meat from the Bones. The entire meal was delicious.

Since it was too late to do everything I wanted on the Roof I only did a quick inspection and headed inside to deal with our Phone Bill. It amazes me that our Bill more than Doubles and suddenly we can’t view our accounts. I spent more than an Hour on the phone just getting our Passwords reset and being able to Download a Detailed Bill. I’ll be calling them back in a few days and getting this straightened around.

Tomorrow is a busy day filled with Appointments and Visits. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Installed The Gates, Short Visit and Inspiring Movie.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Click on the pictures to Enlarge.

On a day that I’d hoped to get up early I did the opposite and slept in late. Walking around trying to get things ready for us to start our day it felt like I was walking in a fog. Not having taken any kind of medication in months and only waking once through the night, I just couldn’t seem to understand it. Minutes later Kathy came downstairs complaining of the same symptom. What did we both do yesterday that would make us feel like this? We both spent time outside in the Hot Weather yesterday. The Oxygen level would have been low but it was still Fresh Air. 
Low Clouds today.
With not too much planned for today we made our time at the Computers a Two Cup Morning. We got caught up on our E-mail, News, Weather and Blog Reading. We even took extra time looking at Sites that we’ve not gone to in some time. Looking at all the Nations that are now having Disagreements with others that they have called Allies for decades makes you wonder “What is going on?” “Why can’t we all just get along? 

We opted for an early lunch so to keep it lite Kathy made Perogies with Sour Cream, Bacon Bits and Cheddar Cheese topped off with the last of the Bing Cherries for dessert.

Kathy was busy doing research while I went outside to finish working on the Gate Project for our friend Kathie. It would only take another Two Hours of welding and grinding before it would be finished. I had planned on painting it but being that Kathie said she would do it and that she wasn’t going to be at her apartment tomorrow I packed everything including Tools into the Car.

When I went inside to cool down I suddenly realized just how wet my clothes were for the time I had been outside. Luckily, we keep some Mott’s Juice Ice Bars (Icicles) in the Freezer for these types of occasions. Within minutes I was feeling better and managed to change into dry clothes before we left.

We stopped at Guardian Storage in Windsor to collect the few pieces of Mail that we had before driving back to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit to put a small case back inside.

We arrived at Kathie’s apartment just past 4:30 and she was not surprisingly alone. Her face lit up just seeing us but when she saw me bringing the Gates over to her Patio she was jumping for joy. This will create a closed yard for when she is taking care of her granddaughter. After getting it installed we noticed a flaw in the Latching Mechanism but found a quick fix for it. We stayed a while longer talking, since she lives by herself she appreciates adult company.

It was past 6:00 when we said our Good-Byes and headed off but our early lunch was long gone. We stopped at Wendy’s where we had our usual meal off the Value Menu all for the low price of $7.19. Can’t beat that!

It was just after 7:00 when we arrived Home and decided to watch another Movie. With the 97 F (36 C) that we experienced today this only seemed fitting to cool us down. The movie was called “Noel” with Susan Sarandon and a host of other stars. It shows how people who are by themselves on Christmas Eve learn to deal with life and the Spirit of Love. An Enjoyable Story along with the Actors reaction to the Movie.

Tomorrow we’ve got to start getting ready. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Nice Ride, Cleaned Garden, Shorter Hangers and Recreated Dessert,

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Click on the pictures to Enlarge.

Kathy went to bed shortly after 11:30 last night knowing that I was still minutes away from posting yesterday’s Blog, she had kidded me about falling asleep in the chair. I assured her I was wide awake but I barely managed to get the pictures loaded and the Blog published before midnight then I pushed on getting my documents ready for today’s post. That’s when my eyes Blinked, and it was then Twenty Minutes later then it was when I last looked at the clock. 
Hey that's where we had our nest this spring.
We both managed to sleep quite soundly last night as a fact I don’t even recall waking once throughout the night. When 7:30 came around I started my morning chores in preparation for breakfast and getting an early start on my Blog Reading. Kathy was coming downstairs by 8:00 and we were off to an early start. While eating Kathy saw what appeared to be a gathering of birds on the Tonneau Cover of the Truck. We figured they were looking for someplace to make a Nest. The first thing I did when I got outside this morning was to make certain there was no way they could get back inside our Pinbox.

After eating and having a second cup at the Computers we needed to take advantage of the cooler morning temperatures. We were soon outside riding our Tandem Bicycle around the Park. On days of higher temperatures, it bothers Kathy’s breathing too much so we miss our rides. Changing the direction of our travel and skipping a street then looping back to ride it from the opposite direction started adding extra distance to our ride. By the time we had finished we had actually taken all the streets in the Park One and a Half Times because we rode some in both directions.

Back at our Site we were cooling off under the Gazebo when we could hear our Phone ringing. By the time I unlocked the door we missed the call but got the message. Kathy called our daughter Karen who was calling to remind us that she and Greg were going to Tennessee with their Motorcycle for a week.

Since it was nearing noon Kathy made us an early lunch of Soup and Sandwiches topped with the last of the Bing Cherries for dessert. 
Rewelding the Pant Hangers.
That Red Box next to my knee is the Welding Machine.
Kathy uses Multi-Hangers to hang her Pants in the Closet but they are made for Houses or Apartments making it so that her Pants tend to drag on the Floor of the Closet. Since I was going to be working outside on the Gate Project for our friend Kathie I had Kathy get me One of those Hangers at a time. By shortening the Hook by Two Inches her Pants no longer touch the Floor and Kathy is really happy about that. 

While I was working on the Hangers and the Gates Kathy busied herself cleaning up our Front Flower Garden. She cut back the Stalks on our Yucca Plant but collected the Seed Pods to give to people we know that want them for their Home Gardens. 
Welding on the Gates.
Notice our Escapee's Wind Spinner by the shed.
I mentioned before how frustrating this has been welding on these Lightweight Metal Gates. Not having the proper Welding Machine for this meant that I was constantly burning through then chasing the holes to fill them in. Just before supper I finally managed to fill the last of the Holes. 

While I grilled some Chicken Breasts on the Weber, Kathy was busy making a wonderful Salad, sautéing some Portobella Mushrooms and making us a dessert. We both hate wasting food and we had a couple of Chocolate Muffins that were starting to get hard so she made them into a Chocolate Sundae Cupcakes. The meal tasted delicious ant the dessert tasted fresh. 

After supper I was back outside grinding the Hangers and Gates. Heavy Clouds started filling the Sky so once the grinding was done I came inside to cool down before getting a refreshing Shower. We'll see what we do tomorrow. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Underlined Words and Another GPS Snag Overcome.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Click on the pictures to Enlarge.

Just before going to bed last night I set up our Second Rand McNally GPS to download its newest updates. No use spending Hours waiting for it so I was in Dreamland long before it finished its task. After having a very Restful Night’s Sleep I woke up the Computer to do the File Transfer while I got things ready for breakfast as well as opening the Window Shades.

Just before 8:00 when I returned the message on the Computer said “File Transfer Complete” so the next step was to check it out. After unplugging the GPS from the Computer as soon as it turned on a message saying “Updated Map File Transfer Incomplete” appeared. The Computer said one thing but the GPS said another and the moment I dismissed the message the GPS shut down. I managed a few other attempts that ended with the same results just before Kathy came downstairs.

Once breakfast was complete and we took our Coffees to the Computers I searched to find the GPS Download File with no success. I tried reconnecting the Two Machines back together. I made it to the Rand McNally Dock Site but it showed “No Updates Available”. I tried chatting with a Tech Support but they sent a Case Number to my E-mail Address but didn’t tell me how to fix the problem. 
A better looking day.
Before opening the door and giving the GPS a toss, I decided to do my usual morning reading. I was surprised by Nancy’s comment saying that she was getting Underlined Words in our Blog but in no one else’s. Kathy checked a number of our posts and couldn’t find anything so I logged out trying to fool the Computer to think I was a stranger checking the post but still found no Underlined Words. I know that I Bold and Colour Words for Emphasis (something our English Teachers would have cracked our knuckles for), but the only Underlined Words that I recall is when I Link to someone else’s Blog. If anyone has any idea why this might be happening please let us know. 

It was past 1:30 when we sat down for a Late Lunch so Kathy again thought it wise to make this our larger meal. While I heated up some Pea Soup, Kathy made us each a Tuna Salad Sandwich with a couple of Clementine Oranges for dessert.

With a comfortable feeling I rechecked my E-mail but nothing from Tech Support so I called them. Same as yesterday, I connected the GPS to the Computer before calling Rand McNally. After Ten Minutes on Hold, I explained our problem before being transferred to the Programing Department. It was Fifteen Minutes later that I was repeating the problem again, this time to Dave and explained that I couldn’t find the Files.

Because the GPS is the equivalent of an External Drive storing data when connected to the Computer, he directed me to go into the GPS itself. He then talked me through to find a couple of Files and to delete them. He had me disconnect the GPS from the Computer and try it. It worked like a charm! Those Two Files were corrupted and causing the problems. The Programmers are working on replacing those Files in the next month.

Dave informed me that if you have Lifetime Updates on a Rand McNally GPS you are allowed to Update it every Month. I had been told by the Salesperson once a year year. 

Around 7:00 Kathy was starting to feel hungry and when she saw the Strawberries in the fridge she knew what to make. She cleaned them up before having me mash them into a Topping. Kathy made Pancakes which I added Butter, Syrup, the Strawberries and some Cool Whip for flavouring. They tasted wonderful.

After doing the dishes we settled in to watch a movie called “Raising Helen” with Kate Hudson. The story is about a young career woman who is suddenly thrust into the role of being a parent. It is a Romantic Comedy but is a role that many people have had to take on in their lives. Good Movie!

Now that we know that both our GPSs will work the way they should this year we’ll find something else to work on tomorrow and it looks like the Weather will be on our side. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Still Hot, Finally Updated Our GPS, Missed Storm and “Dirty Grandpa”.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Click on the pictures to Enlarge.

We both slept much better last night and even managed to be up by 8:00 this morning. After a Lite Breakfast we took our Coffees over to the Computers so we could see what is happening. With the Humidex again forecasted to hit the Century Mark we made indoor plans to fill our time.

It didn’t take long to finish getting caught up with the other Ontario RVers enjoying time with friends, walking down to the Maitland River or taking care of clearing out STUFF. Then there were others just getting caught up thinking because they were Home that they didn’t have anything to write about, were they wrong. We opted to have a second cup at the Computers but we took the time for it to cool while doing some of our indoor chores. 

Kathy thought we’d have our filling meal for lunch so she put together the last of yesterday’s Greek Macaroni Salad, with Chicken Tenders and Olive Slices for a side, then she topped it with a nice bowl of Bing Cherries. 

Looking outside the sky had filled with Storm Clouds and the Weather Guessers were calling for quite a storm to hit our area and looking at the Radar it looked like we might need wings on the Trailer.

After lunch Kathy settled in at the table to sort receipts before adding them to our Expenditure Spreadsheet.

As mentioned on the weekend I was unsuccessful at updating our Rand McNally GPS. After connecting the GPS to the Rand McNally Site on the Computer the next step was to call their Tech Support. You can really get tired of listening to all those Advertisements that replay on a loop while you’re waiting for assistance. It only took Fifteen Minutes for the first person to answer but after hearing what the problem was they said I needed to talk to someone in Programming. On hold for another Twenty Minutes before Chad came on. I’d barely finished explaining the problem when he had me going through their site and with the push of an Icon the GPS was finally being updated.

That was only Forty-Five Minutes on the phone, but now my Computer was busy getting all the Updates Downloaded for the first GPS. Once that was finished it all had to be Transferred it all to the GPS. Over Five Hundred Files and Two Hours later we could get information that we had never seen before. Like the Floor Plan for the Seattle Washington Space Needle and to Cinderella’s Castle at Disney World. Don’t know if we’ll ever need it but I saw it loading. It was decided that I would wait until I’m going to bed to do the other GPS.

It was past 6:30 when Kathy decided to cook up a couple of Store-Bought All Beef Tourtieres. When Kathy saw how natural these were made she thought we’d give them a try. They took longer to cook then the box suggested but they tasted great even before we dressed them up, Kathy with Ketchup and me with Hot Salsa.

We decided to see the movie “Bad Grandpa” with Robert De Niro this evening. It was rated “R” due to Mature Adult Matter and Course Language. It gave us a good laugh.

So far we’ve had no Rain and the Humidex is supposed to be more comfortable tomorrow so we’ll see what we can do. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Kathy’s Follow Up, Finding It, Walmart Entertainment and Touching Movie.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Click on the pictures to Enlarge.

We knew that we had to be up at a decent time this morning so we didn’t plan on sleeping in. We shouldn’t have thought about it because we were both tossing and turning the better part of the night. With a 10:00 appointment we both nearly jumped out of bed when we saw 8:30 on the Clock. Breakfast was Lite and Easy as we managed to be ready and out the door by 9:15. 
The way the Sky was all day.
Our destination was to see our Optimologist in Windsor for Kathy’s One Month Follow-up. We made it with minutes to spare but then the Parking Permit Machine decided to act up. Apparently the Toonie that I was attempting to pay with had nicks in the outer edge from a previous user that the machine disliked. Luckily, we both carry a few coins just in case.

David was very pleased with Kathy’s outcome and happily measured her for Computer and Reading Glasses. He also filled in part of a form that Kathy had to complete before his receptionist FAXed it to the Ministry of Transport so they would remove Kathy’s restriction removed from her driver’s license that requires her to have Eyeglasses on while driving. That not only saved us a stop but at least an hour. 

We stopped at Guardian Storage where the first thing we did was pick up our Mail. Driving back to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit we had to find something. With our recently adding all the Merry Thanksmas Gifts here to give us more room in our Trailer guess what had to be moved first. Using our Battery Powered LED Lights, it only took a few minutes to locate what I needed but I wasn’t happy. It was located in the very back corner of our Storage Unit so after moving a few more things the repacking started. 

It was already past 11:30 when we left the Storage Yard and we had more errands to run so we went to Wendy’s for lunch. Where else can you get Two Chicken Wraps, Two Medium Chocolate Frosties and Two Senior’s Sized Soft Drinks all for $7.19. We took our time enjoying our meal and People Watching.

With our Shopping List in hand we headed over to the Zehrs Super Store where we managed to get most everything on our List. 

Those Two Things that we needed they didn’t carry so we went to the West-end Walmart. The one thing was out of stock but the other was a new Battery for Kathy’s Watch. It took Three Associates before they were able to change the Battery. Then it would take another Associate to finally get the Back reinstalled on her Watch. Total cost was $6.12, the Hour of entertainment Priceless. 

Golfers at the 19th Hole Restaurant.
We finally made it Home by 4:00 and the Clouds were looking very threatening. It didn’t take long to get everything inside and put away. I went out to the Weber where I grilled Two Hotdogs and a Zucchini while Kathy made up a nice Greek Flavoured Pasta Salad along with serving the last of the Cantaloupe for dessert. It all turned out wonderful and tasted great. 

It’s been over a week since I last cut the grass so after supper Kathy did up the Dishes while I took care of that chore.

We later watched a Movie titled “Hounddog” about a carefree young girl, played by Dakota Fanning, growing up in Alabama in the 1950s that had to face the Realities of Life after she is Raped. Slow paced but a moving video.

The forecasted Rain finally started after 9:00. We’ll see what we do tomorrow. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Missing Chew Toy, The Hornets Are Back, Movie Matinee and Not Going To Vegas.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Click on the pictures to Enlarge.

I actually had trouble posting the pictures on last night’s Blog. Even though I was already on Blogger each time I tried to insert the pictures the message “This Site Can Not Be Found” would appear. I saved what I had and rebooted my Computer and everything worked the way it should have in the first place.

That tired me out enough that I was in bed before midnight but like the other night I was soon awake. As mentioned before both Kathy and I have Sleep Apnea and use CPAP Machines to keep us breathing while we sleep. I was about to get up and take a Tylenol when I felt that I had a sore jaw. Now don’t worry or think that I was going to have a Heart Attack. I have a habit of gnashing my teeth in my sleep and wear a protective guard that I affectionately refer to as my Chew Toy. Being in such a hurry to get to bed last night I’d forgotten my Chew Toy. As soon as I put it in place my jaw stopped aching and I fell back to sleep.

Late Hours, Restless Sleep all add up to another problem, Sleeping In. It was 8:30 when I finally got up this morning and because it Rained most of the night Kathy was even more relaxed then myself and slept until 9:00.

After finishing our breakfast, we had our Coffee/Tea at the Computers. We had a couple more responses on the Unit we advertised on Kijiji. One wanted to E-Transfer the money and have me ship it. That type of thing is okay among family and good friends but I don’t need anyone emptying our accounts rather then filling them. That one got deleted pretty fast but I responded to the other. Like the previous ones, we have not had another reply. I also worked at completing my Medical History and Questionnaire for my upcoming Cataract Surgery. 

It was past 1:30 when we worked together getting things ready for lunch. While I cleaned up a Cantaloupe Kathy plated the last of the Coleslaw and Potato Salad along with a Chicken Strip next to a Bagel with Cream Cheese on it. This would be our large meal of the day.

Kathy washed the dishes while I packed up the garbage and walked it down to the Trash and Recycle Area. Even though the Humidex was hoovering just below the Century Mark you felt the heat. Walking back to our Trailer, I noticed the sky towards the west starting to fill with large Clouds. Even though I briefly spoke with Larry and Jim it didn’t take long for me to get Home.

You might recall I had to unplug our Vent Pipe recently due to Hornets making a nest which caused the Black Tank to vent inside our Trailer. In order to screen the Vent, it has to be removed and it appears the nest is back. Due to the Wet Weather we’ve been getting, along with other chores it hasn’t gotten done yet. The only thing I could temporarily do is dump and flush the Black Tank again.

Tired of working on the Computers we had another Movie Matinee. We watched “Joy” with Jennifer Lawrence in the lead role of a woman who invents something and nearly losses it all until she learns the workings of the Financial World. Very well done.

It was past 7:00 when Kathy decided we should eat supper so she cooked up a prepackaged Lasagna. She normally makes her own but just thought this would be faster and worth a try. It took forever to cook and was Over-Salted. She’ll make her own again next time.

While we were eating Tony from Las Vegas called saying they had promos to get people to town. I said “Thanks but No-Thanks”. We’ve had Rain since the Sunset. Tomorrow Kathy sees our Optometrist and we have other errands to run. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Weather Change and Strange Movie.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Click on the pictures to Enlarge.

It felt strange being awaken by the Sunlight peeking around the Window Shades in the bedroom shortly after 6:00 this morning. I then sat on the edge of the bed and I blinked. Another look at the Clock and it then read it was past 8:00 and I was feeling stiff after sitting on the edge of the bed for so long.
I had everything prepped for breakfast, the Window Shades lifted and had already read an E-Mail Reply by the time Kathy got out of bed. She had warned me before going to bed last night she wanted to make French Toast so she only needed to take the Eggs out of the Fridge. They are a treat and we try not to overeat them because like everything else at our ages seems to stick to our waists.

We finished our Coffees at the Computers checking the Blogs on our Sidebar. By 9:30 the Humidex was already at 102 F (39 C) and would climb by noon hour. The temperature normally doesn’t affect me but lately it’s had me feeling dragged out, robbing me of my energy before I even get started.
We enjoyed a simple Sandwich for lunch topped off with a Fruit Cup for dessert. Looking out the windows as we ate the forecasted Heavy Clouds were already starting to fill the Sky.

The 109 F (43 C) Humidex was accompanied by distant Thunder. Within Fifteen Minutes the Thunder was starting to cause the Park Power to shut down for short periods of time. When the Rain finally came down it only dampened the Patio and was gone in minutes.
Just enough rain to wet the Toneau Cover on the Truck.
Checking the On-Line Radar, it showed there was a much larger cell heading our way, giving us about an Hour to its arrival. It also showed the Humidex had dropped to 90 F (32 C) after only the brief Rain. Since it was close to supper time I turned on the Weber while Kathy got a Thin Crust Pizza ready.

I stayed outside while it cooked and watched as more Clouds filled the Sky. It also gave me the chance to tell Dave and Jean the dangers of leaving their Two Awnings out while going for an afternoon drive. Their son has been using their trailer but they came out for the Long Weekend. They appreciated the information and were also surprised how I was grilling the Pizza.

It was done in Fifteen Minutes and tasted wonderful but because of the Thin Crust we weren’t stuffed. We had Apple Sauce for dessert.

We watched a movie called “Demolition” starring Jake Gyllenhaal this evening. It was about the strange way the character dealt with the sudden loss of his wife in a Traffic Accident. We both agreed that this person should have gone for Bereavement Counselling. Check it out and you will understand how they got the title for the movie.

The Rain hasn’t stopped since we sat down for supper and is supposed to Rain all night. Sounds like good sleeping weather to us. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
