Increased Pain, Getting Ready For Hot Weather, Grilled Pizza and “The Commuter”.


Our Location today is at Wildwood Golf and RV Park, McGregor, Ontario.

I was once again up before 7:30 so everything was ready for breakfast even before I sat at my Computer. Even though The Weather Network was showing Sunny Skies with a slight Breeze it was anything but that outside. The good thing was there was no Rain.
Taken at 9:00 this morning. Where is the Sun?
I had basically completed my morning Reading when I looked at the Clock. We have an agreed upon time that if the other is not awake by we wake them up. When Kathy finally joined me for breakfast she related how the Pain Level in her Hands and Shoulders has increased. The Arthritic Doctor wanted her to be totally off the One Medication because he determined that she had the onset of Rheumatoid Arthritis rather then Diabetic Neuropathy. Fortunately our Family Doctor thought that would cause her too much pain and changed it to a lower dosage instead. When the pain gets to be too much she is supposed to take a Tylenol as a break through medication. She’ll be doing that tonight.
We did our inside chores along with making plans for today and later this week. With the Late Start we had a Lite Breakfast which was long past by 1:00 so we got together to make lunch. I finely sliced up some Red Peppers and Onions so that Kathy could saute them. While Kathy toasted the Bread I sliced the Beef Roast we cooked the other day to make Sandwiches. Once the Toasted Sandwiches were assembled a slice of Provolone Cheese was added. It was delicious but when Kathy is on her Pain Medications she needed more so she added a few Cookies and an Apple Sauce Cup for dessert. As we enjoyed our meal the Sun appeared and the Clouds all disappeared.
Even with all the Windows and Roof Vents open it seemed to be getting Hot inside the Trailer. While Kathy started pulling the Window Screens out to give then and the inside of the Windows a good cleaning I was pulling the Air Conditioner Return Vents apart. We have to be ready if we need to use the AC and the Dust that had covered the Filters while we were in Quartzsite this past winter was thick. I took them outside and used the Shop-Vac to get them totally clean. After giving the AC a test run we shut it off.

Our longer range Forecast is starting to show some High Humidex Days coming our way. What has me scratching my head about those days is that when it gets so Hot our Humidity Levels actually drop.

I had recently purchased new Weather Seal for our Door. It took quite some time to get all the Old Seal removed including the Adhesive Strip. Then after giving it a good cleaning with Rubbing Alcohol I planned on installing the New Weather Seal. I spent over a Half Hour trying to carefully peal the Protective Strip from the back only to ruin Two Inches of the Seal. There was no way the Protective Strip was coming off. Guess I’ll be going back to Home Hardware in the morning.
It was past 5:30 when we decided to have Pizza for supper. I started and left the Weber on High with the Pizza Stone on the grill. Kathy had gotten the Pizza from the Freezer and put it on our Pizza Pan. Since this was not a Thin Crust Pizza it took Twenty-Five Minutes to be done just the way we like it.
Strawberry Short Cupcake with Cool Whip and Chocolate Sauce.
An Evening Snack.
We watched the movie “The Commuter” starring Liam Neilson. As with all of his movies only the first couple of minutes are slow before you are kept on the edge of your seat. We gave it a Ten.

With no Rain for tomorrow we’ll pick up the pace a bit. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.

Dealing With Spam, Frustrating Sites, Hamburger Night and “Keeping Up With The Joneses”.

I was a little surprised how early that I was wide awake and getting out of bed this morning. Before I even had time to get things ready for breakfast Kathy was joining me downstairs. The answer to the mystery was quite simple. It wasn’t Raining. A new phenomena to say the least especially since we live further southwest in Ontario then most of the other RV Bloggers we read yet we have been getting more Clouds, Lower Temperatures, Rain and Wind then they have and we are supposed to be known as Canada’s Florida. That is a laugh. We had similar Weather this past winter in Quartzsite and they were setting records.

After having a Muffin for breakfast we took our Two Cup Refreshments over to the Computers. I was surprised to find a number of Spam posted in the Comment Section for last night’s Blog. Knowing that we are not alone in this I have to bring up the proper way to get rid of them. Many just Delete them but you are only going to cause more of them to appear. What you need to do is to move them to the Spam Folder so the Filter will start recognizing them for what they are. When that happens they will no longer appear in the Comment Section of your Blog.
The Fairy Garden got changed a bit.
The safest place to move those to the Spam Folder is from inside the Design area. There you will see all the latest Comments including all the Spam. The reason for checking it there is because many times the Spammers will attach their Trash to older posts that are Days, Weeks, Months or even Years old. If you just leave them be to up your Comment Count you will open a gateway of Spam to your Blog. It is also wise to check the Spam Section of your Blog or E-Mails periodically because sometimes the Filters will remove Legitimate Comments or Messages.
For lunch we simply had a Garden Salad with an Apple Sauce Cup and a couple of Cookies for dessert.

I’m still researching the Item that we’ve been looking for. After finding what I thought was a promising lead I actually tried ordering it On-Line only to receive the message that I was not authorized to use the Site. ??? Talk about frustrating.

I spent a short time removing and cleaning the License Plate Shields on the Truck while also installing our new License Sticker. Hard to believe how much debris gets between those things.

We never did see the Sun because of all the Clouds but there was also hardly any breeze at all. That was the perfect combination for us to go for a Bike Ride around the entire Park. At least nobody said that Kathy wasn’t pedalling instead One asked Kathy if her name was Daisy. Even with the 70 F (21 C) temperature with all the Rain we’ve had the last few days the Humidity was nearly 90% this afternoon.
After getting getting cooled down we headed over to the Park Clubhouse. Today they were having Hamburger Night. When they started this a couple years ago you got a Hamburger, a bag of Potato Chips and a can of Pop. Today all we got was the Hamburger with Condiments. The profits help the Seasonal RVers purchase things that can be used by everyone here.

When we got Home we watched a Comedy Spy Spoof called “Keeping Up With The Joneses”. There was actually lots of action in a hilarious way when a couple of agents working a case move into a quiet neighbourhood. We gave it a Six out of Ten.

Since we are expecting Two more days with no Rain before it returns for another Week we plan on doing something different. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.

Happy Fathers Day and Getting Ready To Build An Ark.


Our Location today is at Wildwood Golf and RV Park, McGregor, Ontario.

We hope that all our Male readers enjoyed a Happy Fathers Day but we were reminded that there are some Single Mothers that have to pull double duty and should be praised for doing so.
Taken just before 8:00.
When I woke up just before 7:30 and didn’t hear the Rain tapping on our roof I was certain that I could finish trimming along and cleaning the Patio after yesterdays Rain. I was in the process of getting things ready for breakfast shortly after 7:30 when the Rain started all over again. Scratch that idea off the list.
Everything is green or blooming.
I had managed to nearly finish all my morning reading when Kathy woke up. With the sound of the Rain once again tapping away on our roof it was unbelievable that she was able to wake up at all. She started inquiring something about building an Ark but she was struggling to keep her eyes open while having her Toast and Rhubarb Sauce for breakfast.

Just when the Rain itself would start to slow down it would once again pick back up. We read all the News, checked all the Weather Forecast and read all the Blogs on our Sidebar before Kathy sent out Happy Fathers Day wishes to our son Kevin. After finishing what few inside chores there were to do we even did a few Jigsaw Puzzles On-Line.
We finally had Pea Soup for a late lunch along with Bing Cherries and some Cookies for dessert.
Glancing out the Window we watched as the Rain Gauge kept increasing. We needed to go drop off a Fathers Day Card but figured it would be better to go after having something to eat. Kathy had me slice the Beef Roast we cooked the other day so she could make Sandwiches for supper along with a Yogurt Cup for dessert. We haven’t had a Roast that tender in years
Taken just before 3:00.
It didn’t take long to clean up the Dishes before we were on our way to Amherstburg. When we arrived Kevin was in the garage measuring pieces that he needs to fabricate for his Street Rod. After Kathy gave him a Hug and a Fathers Day Greeting she headed inside to visit with Melissa. It was last September that I had seen the work he had done but since lots of Family Celebrations along with the odd Party have been held in the Garage which had slowed his progress down slightly.
We soon headed inside to visit with Kathy and Melissa. We had missed our weekly visit this past Wednesday when one of their close friends had lost a parent and they needed to go pay their respects. Melissa still made certain we had a cup of Tea and a lite Snack before we said our Good Nights.
So much Rain these plants that we moved are thriving.
Even though it was over Two Hours since the Rain had finally stopped coming down there was so much Humidity in the Air that it looked like a Ground Fog in the Farmers Fields as we drove along. The Farmers Fields that I mentioned appeared to be finally drying up yesterday once again resembled Marshes.
When we got Home we checked today’s Rainfall. It was approximately Three/Eighths of an Inch and our High Temperature was only 61 F (16 C). It’s not supposed to Rain for a few more days but if we see the Sun we’ll be very Lucky. We’ll see what we can do. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.

Beating The Rain, Shopping, “Secondhand Lions” and A Happy Fathers Day Wish..


Our Location today is at Wildwood Golf and RV Park, McGregor, Ontario.

Before going to bed last night we made a big mistake. We left most of the Windows slightly ajar. The fact that we left our Bedcover on we really didn’t feel the cold. The problem was all the Fresh Air we were breathing had us sleeping a lot later then we wanted to do.

I hadn’t even finished raising the Window Shades downstairs when Kathy came downstairs. We both had to wait a bit before breakfast would be ready and we were only having Cereal.
This couple drove by wearing Shorts and Heavy Coats.
Looking outside we were surprised to see Golfers out on the Greens wearing Shorts, Coats, Gloves and Toques. That was making quite a fashion statement.

The One thing that had not happened yet was the forecasted Rain for our area. Before I even sat at the Computer I went outside to find the Grass was completely dry after not having had any morning Dew. The fact that it needed to be mowed had me scrambling to cut it before the Rain actually arrived especially since we have an older model Electric Lawnmower. I got the entire lawn cut and was disconnecting the Extension Cord just as it began. I stood under our Gazebo to wind up the Cord before heading in. There was no edging or blowing off the Patio today.
We enjoyed a second cup of Coffee/Tea at the Computers while watching people scrambling on the Golf Course in the Rain. When we finished at the Computers we got together to make up a Shopping List before Kathy started making lunch. She made open faced Hot Beef and Portobello Mushroom Sandwiches while I served up Strawberries on Yogurt for dessert.
This field was mostly Water covered on Thursday.
As soon as the dishes were cleaned up we were on our way to Amherstburg. It was nice to see the Farmers Fields that had standing Water in them the other day dried up probably from all the Wind we have gotten the last couple of days.
Our destination was the No-Frills grocery store. We took our time getting only what was on our Shopping List. When we came out the Rain had finally stopped for a while.
Since we couldn’t get everything on our List we needed to make another stop at Dollarama. There are some things that grocery stores just cannot compete when it comes to low prices.
June Bugs (AKA Fishflies) are cover the walls early this year.
Just as we got back to Wildwood Gold and RV Park the Rain started once again. Luckily we had brought our Raincoats so it wasn’t a problem.
We were only at the Computers a short while when we decided to have supper. We had Split Pea with Ham Soup for supper to help take the chill out of our bodies and for dessert we each had a Muffin.

We decided to watch the movie “Secondhand Lions” starring Michael Caine, Robert Duvall and Haley Joel Osment which last 110 Minutes about a couple of Uncles looking after a Great Nephew for the summer of 1962. This is a must see video for all ages and we gave it a Ten Rating. Even if you saw it at the Theater years ago when it first came out you will enjoy the behind the scenes interviews and commentary which were just as good as the movie itself.

Kathy and I want to take this moment to wish all our Male Readers a Safe and Happy Fathers Day.

Research, Organizing, Exercising and “Draft Day”.


Our Location today is at Wildwood Golf and RV Park, McGregor, Ontario.

We ended up sleeping with our Bedcover on last night making up for the fact that the temperature dropped down to 45 F (7 C). It really wasn’t that cold but with the Twenty-Five MPH Wind Gusts and overnight Drizzle it felt worse.
I was up and on my Computer before I heard Kathy stirring upstairs. She appreciated the Hot Cereal that I made for her breakfast. Even though The Weather Network said we had no Rain after 11:00 last night it was strange to see approximately Five/Eighths on an Inch had fallen since the Sun had set.

We worked together setting up the Crock Pot to cook the beautiful Beef Roast that we picked up this week at Wigle’s Meat and Deli in Amherstburg. It was totally lean with no Fat or Grizzle that we normally get at most grocery outlets.

Being fairly caught up on most of our projects we stayed inside getting caught up on World News. I also needed to log in all the Vitamins that we purchased yesterday.
For lunch Kathy served the last of her Homemade Vegetable Chicken Soup along with using the last of our Cheese Sticks. She also served a Rice Crispy square and Yogurt Cup for dessert.

In preparation of doing the Pill Doucettes this coming week I had to separate and recount all the Medications that Kathy had to stay off of while doing some of the recent medical tests. I also repackaged most of the Vitamins that we purchased yesterday putting more then half the Containers into the Recycle Bin.

Since Kathy had gathered the Trash I walked it all to the Park Trash and Recycle Area. Even though the afternoon temperature reached 73 F (23 C) most people were wearing jackets due to the brisk wind.

I stopped at the Exercise Room where I managed to spend some time getting myself in shape.
Supper was delicious and you could cut the Beef Roast with your Fork. It was that tender and there is plenty left for another meal or Two.
Strawberries on Yogurt for dessert.
Once we cleaned the Dishes we watched the movie “Draft Day” Starring Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner It was quite an Eye-Opener as to what takes place behind the scenes in major league sports. We gave it an Eight out of Ten.

With more seasonal weather forecasted for the next couple of days we’ll see what we get into. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
