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.

Heavy Rain, Delicious Homemade Pie, Errands, Visiting and Researching.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

We were both up around 8:00 this morning not because we were well rested but because of the Drum-Like Sound of the Rain pounding on our Roof. The Forecast had been for Rain but not that hard. Opening all the Window Shades made very little difference inside the Trailer forcing us to turn on Lights so we could see our breakfast. 

That definitely made for a Two Cup Morning while we were on our Computers. Playing with the Radar on my screen I was able to tell Kathy when the Rain would stop and when the Sun would start to break through the Clouds. When I went outside later our Rain Gauge showed we’d gotten 7/8” of Rain just this morning which is a lot for this area. 

With plans for this afternoon we decided to start making up lunch slightly early. When we visited with Kevin and Melissa last evening, Melissa sent us Home with a couple of Pieces of Homemade Meat Pie. Their boys are typical teenagers and would rather have Burgers rather than something healthy. What is so special is that she chopped her Vegetables very fine, mixed them with some Mashed Potatoes then added the Meat. It was Delicious! You can’t get store bought pies that taste that good. 

We were out the door by 12:30 heading towards Windsor with a bunch of places we needed to stop at with the first being Windsor Gas and Diesel. The Truck was running good last night but we wanted Jim to give the Engine a quick scan before we hit the road in November. Since we’ll be going back to town next Tuesday we’ll drop the Truck off for him to check it over. 
The Park egret looking for lunch.
Driving over to Guardian Storage we collected our Mail before heading over to Green Shield to submit Kathy’s Claim Form from Mary’s Healthy Heals appointment. We generally have a full reimbursement in less than a week. 
In his flight path.
From there we made a quick stop at Walmart to check something out before heading across town to the Windsor Rehabilitation Center to visit our dear friend Vera. 
You can see Some Trees are changing colours already.
We arrived shortly after 2:00 which meant we didn’t have to worry about interfering with her lunch. She has been there for Four Weeks already and is really wishing she were home. We talked about the kids and what they are up to. Then she pointed out that it wouldn’t be long before we’d be heading South. Even once she gets home she won’t be able to drive for a while but she’ll still need to do Physio Therapy. If you recall I set up her Apple Tablet to work off the Hospital WiFi Connection. Because the Tablet considers the connection as Unsecured it shut down after Twenty Minutes. A nurse tried to help her out with the same results and yet her I-Phone has no problem with the connection. Since her supper arrives around 5:00 we said our “Good-Byes” just before that. 
Changing Colours.
Kathy was starting to feel Light-Headed as walked out so we headed over to Wendy’s where we ordered our supper from the Value Menu. Even at $9.20 for the both of us to eat we can’t go wrong but we’ll be looking forward when the price drops again next year. 
Heading Home.
Using the new Highway 401 ramp to Walker Road we skirted the city and were Home shortly after 6:00. The Sun had been shining all afternoon drying things up.

With plans to do some Sight-Seeing before we get to Arizona this year Kathy was busy Researching places we could stay along the way. So far, she hasn’t found any Free Camping areas in New Mexico around the White Sands area.

Tomorrow will feel above the Century Mark with High Winds for the first day of Fall before returning to seasonal temperatures. We’ll figure out what we can do at that point. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
