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.

Overnight Rain, Change Of Menu and More Heavy Thunderstorms

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

With the constant sound of Rain tapping on the Roof neither of us had any problems sleeping last night as a fact we were sleeping so soundly it was hard to get ourselves moving this morning. It was nearly 8:30 when Kathy joined me downstairs and even with the Rain still falling the inside of the Trailer was starting to warm up. (Remember yesterday we were nearly freezing?) 

Once breakfast was over we took a few minutes to check our E-Mails and Comments on the Blog. All Bloggers experience SPAM but the one we received this morning showed an Educated Person that did not know anything about Geography because they expected us to drive to Mumbai, in India to help feed the starving masses. We are all for helping our fellow human beings but first their country needs to teach them better work ethics instead of Scamming Others. 

Kathy was reviewing her Gift Lists this morning and found that she had not finished a few things. She tries to give everyone the same number of Gifts with close to the same Dollar Value. The Lists showed we needed to top off Three of those Gifts so we had to go to the Bank.

By 10:00 we were headed to Windsor with a list of things to do. The first was to check for any Mail at Guardian Storage then go to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit to pick up some Gift Wrap that we left behind on Thursday.

We then went to the Bank only to be faced with the Local Cub Scouts putting on their Apple Day Fundraiser. Having gone door to door back when I was a kid I definitely planned on helping but I’d left all my change at Home. Promising the Little Guy at the door I’d be back, the Teller inside the Bank smiled when I increased my Withdrawal by a Dollar and told him the reason. Not only did the Little Guy and his Dad standing behind him have smiles on their faces but so did Kathy when I gave her that Shiny Apple. 

Since it was nearly 11:00 we drove across to Wendy’s to have our lunch off the Value Menu and we also wanted a Special Salad to-go. When the Manager heard who it was for, she told me to enjoy our Meal and pick the Salad up as we were leaving so the Chicken would be Hot.

We drove across town where I dropped Kathy off at the door of the Windsor Rehabilitation Center because it was still Raining and it was nearing 12:00. She rushed upstairs to give Vera her fresh Chicken Salad just as her lunch tray was arriving. Having been there already a month she had gotten tired of the Hospital Food so her lunch tray went back untouched. After parking I followed with a Bag of Books that we brought for Vera to read. She loved every bit of that Salad and cherished the Four Hours we visited.

When we left the Sun was shining and was turning the puddles in the parking lot into steam. We made a stop at the nearby Shoppers Drug Mart to pick up a few supplies including Two more bottles of Vitamins that I missed the other day. We also walked the Aisles trying to limber up after having sat most of the afternoon. 

We were about to head for Home when we saw the Dairy Queen sign. We each had one of their freshly cooked $7.00 meal combos that includes an Entrée, a small amount of Fries, a Soft Drink and an Ice Cream Sundae. By the time our meals arrived at the table our Tasty Sundaes had disappeared. 

When we arrived back at Wildwood, we were surprised to see Standing Water on the Road and some of the Greens. When we parked at our Site there was Water visible on our Patio. We left the door open to cool down the inside of the Trailer but before we could turn on our Computers it started to Thunder. Looking back outside it looked like the Sun had already set. I barely had the Door closed when the Rain started pounding on our roof for the next Two Hours. The Forecast we saw this morning had been completely changed. 
Some Trees are changing colours already.
While most Canadians will be celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend we’ll be doing it with a little twist tomorrow. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
