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.

Positive Answers, Pleasant Surprise, Overdue Visit and Shadow Recruit.

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

We were both up around 8:00 so that we would have a few minutes to relax. That’s right we just got up from a good night’s sleep and we needed to relax. After eating breakfast we took our Coffee/Tea over to the Computers to check what was happening around us. It felt wonderful not to be struggling to get On-Line using our High Speed Internet compared to our restricted Verizon MiFi. The Verizon package we have says it can be used in Canada or Mexico but what they don’t tell you is that it is slowed down to where we can barely connect to things we need to here in Canada.

While we sat at the Computers Mary from Healthy Heals called. She was off yesterday and was just getting caught up on her Phone Messages. After welcoming us back Home she scheduled Kathy’s next appointment.
Cloudy all day.
I took a Few Minutes to call the Union Hall to see if the Proposed Cuts by our Premier to our Out Of Province Coverage would affect our Winter Travels. Leaving a Voice Mail for the Benefits Representative I could only hope that he would get back to me today.
After getting our inside chores finished we raided the Fridge of a few Leftovers for an early lunch. We finished the Leftover Celery Root along with the Leftover Jell-O topped off by the Leftover Cool Whip. Even though we still have other Leftovers to be eaten that created an empty space in our Fridge.

We were out the door by 11:30 heading towards Tecumseh. The first stop we did was to stop at the Pioneer gas station on Manning Road. We’ve put a lot of Miles on the Car since picking it up at our son Kevin’s house. By using my Points Card each time we get Gas or Diesel at Pioneer when I went inside to pay for our Purchase I was pleasantly surprise that it was completely “Free”.

We headed up Lesperance Road until we arrived at the Hearing Life building the former Listen Up. Kathy had her hearing tested in 2016 but noticed that it has gotten worse lately. Today she was retested and the change was considerable. Luckily with the Health Care Coverage that we have there will be no out of pocket expense for us. We’ll be picking up her new Hearing Aids soon.

While Kathy was talking with Becky the Audiologist Dan the Union’s Benefit Representative called. The proposed changes in the Out of Province Coverage might affect many Ontarians from going south but the Coverage we have through our contract with Ford will cover that cost. Kathy saw the smile on my face and knew then that we would be able to continue going south for some years to come.

From there we stopped at the Tecumseh Post Office to get a couple of Stamps. I remember when Three Cent Stamps were thought to be Highway Robbery. Two Stamps today cost $2.59. No wonder more people use E-Mail.

We stopped at Guardian Storage to get our Mail and Carol asked if Kathy was feeling better. Having just finished the last of the Antibiotics today she is feeling much better.

After leaving there we took the E.C. Rowe Expressway across Windsor and exited at Dominion Blvd. We drove all the way to Riverside Drive until we arrived at the Devonshire Retirement Home. We spent the next Three Hours visiting with my aunt Anna who lost her husband of 49 Years Bob just before Christmas. She is slowly recovering and has accepted that he is no longer suffering.

Caught in the grips of Rush Hour when we left we stopped at Wendy’s for supper. Kathy had her Full Sized Apple Pecan Salad while I had my Spicy Chicken Sandwich with Chili rather then Fries. We took our time as we watched the Traffic Chaos through the Windows.

We made a stop at Michaels on Walker Road to get some Studded Buttons for a Jacket repair. We hadn’t walked in that store for a long time but in our former lives we knew it well.

We drove across to Canadian Tire to purchase some Silicon Sealer. When we took the Roof Fabric off our Gazebo last fall it showed signs of wear after only One Season. By sealing the Fabric it should give us many more years of use.

It started Raining before we arrived Home at 7:30. While enjoying a nice hot cup of Coffee we watched the movie “Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit” starring Chris Pine and Kevin Costner. It kept us on the edge of our seats.

Looking at tomorrow’s weather forecast we are glad we made yesterday our Moving Day. Tomorrow is forecasted for Rain all day along with Winds gusting to 35 MPH. Not sure what we’ll be doing but we’ll find something. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

The World's Great Proverbs

One does not wash one's dirty linen in public.


  1. Another busy day for you and Kathy. Hope you don't have anything to do tomorrow if it isn't a good weather day

  2. It costs about 55 cents to mail a letter here. That's why I've taken to paying all my bills online, which is probably why the price keeps going up!! LOL

  3. wow..that is expensive for stamps! I agree with Nancy, we pay our bills online and very rarely have to use the post office :) That was a busy day you two had once again. I'm sure Aunt Anna was very glad to see you two!

  4. We pay our bills online, also. Just easier then mailing.
    Glad to read you are in your summer spot.

  5. Another full day for you. Can you please explain what the proposed out of province coverage is all about and how it will affect Ontarians heading south?

    1. There will be no coverage. You have to buy your own.

  6. Having had some of the worst Internet service providers in this part of Texas, it is easy to appreciate when you finally get good, efficient but more importantly fast service.

    So glad you were able to visit your Aunt Anna and I am sure she appreciated your presence as well. When dad was in a nursing home there were so few residents whose families made an effort to go see them.

    Nice that Kathy is feeling much better. You both take care.
