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.

It felt wonderful to once again sleep until nearly 7:00 this morning. After setting everything up for breakfast I headed straight to my Computer.

The first thing I did was to reply to an E-Mail from our Good Friends Wayne and Sue from Washington State who we met in January 2017 and became Friends. Each year since then we have set up camp near one another at La Posa South LTVA outside of Quartzsite making the bond grow stronger. It is nice to keep in touch.

Kathy woke shortly after 8:00 so after finishing breakfast we both took our Coffee/Tea over to the Computers for a short while. As soon as my Coffee was finished I started my inside chores. As soon as I was dressed we changed locations Kathy getting dressed and myself reading the last Blog of the morning.

By 10:00 we were on our way towards Windsor on an important mission. When Kathy was growing up when she asked her mother how to get places she was told to use Landmarks. The problem is that in this city Landmarks are modified, replaced or just removed. Now that I am working she has to drive herself places that most of her Landmarks no longer exist and roads have been rerouted. I took her on the roads, streets and avenues that she has to travel on giving her their Names. When I drove in the past she just enjoyed the ride but today it was like she was going to these places for the very first time. She said she could find her way easier to Yuma Arizona then in our Home Town of Windsor due to all the changes.
We hadn’t gotten our Mail in the last couple of days so we stopped at Guardian Storage where Kathy had to learn how to do so. With that accomplished we went back to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit to pick up our small Filing Cabinet. Kathy will go through it this week getting rid of old receipts and putting in the latest ones from this past winter to present day.
We then stopped at Wendy’s where we enjoyed our Chicken Wraps, Chocolate Frosties and Senior’s Soft Drinks at the low cost of $7.19. As soon as summer is finished the price will shoot up by a couple of dollars.

We were soon headed across town to the Devonshire Retirement Home to visit with my aunt Anna. After signing in we found her sitting in the downstairs visiting room with my cousin Ann Marie. They both looked to be in shock when I mentioned that I was back to work. After a short while Ann Marie headed for home giving us a chance to visit.

We learned how my uncle Bob was really suffering towards the end and was avoiding visiting with anyone but with some scheming she brought him out of his shell. It seemed to get noisy with people talking in the background so we continued visiting in her private room. She is still having a hard time getting over loosing the love of her life after 58 Years together. It was close to 4:00 when we said our good byes with promises of returning soon.
We decided to stop at Wendy’s on our way Home to have the same thing for supper as we did for lunch. This location had run out of Baked Potatoes which we seldom have along with Grilled Chicken and Wraps. By just having Sandwiches with our Frosties and Senior’s Soft Drinks more then doubled the cost.
Back Home I brought in the File Cabinet for Kathy to work on. I then went On-Line and found the Identical Coveralls I presently wear. By ordering Two Pair shipping from Winnipeg is free. 

Tomorrow I’m back to
Work and Kathy has things to do. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Words of Inspiration

A little kingdom I possess where thoughts and feelings dwell,

And very hard the task I find of governing it well.

Louisa May Alcott, American Writer


  1. I think it is good you found a job when you needed it. And much better since you seem to be enjoying the work also.

  2. I am so glad you made the time to visit your aunt, I am sure you made her day.

  3. Not only you are back to work, but Kathy has more to do. A marriage is team work in progress.

  4. I'm like Kathy in the respect that when Ken is driving I'm just enjoying the ride. Especially when we go to Reno and I'm driving I always have to ask him for directions. Happy Monday!

  5. It's always good for both parties to know how to navigate the area. Good for Kathy for taking up the reins when you are working!!

  6. It's true. When just going along for the ride, one tends to not pay much attention. After over two years here, when I drive into town alone I get easily confused.

  7. I have been wondering how Kathy was managing. Together you seem to do so very many errands everyday and now she seems to be home on her own and not getting out. It will be good for her to go do some errands on her own.

  8. No quetion that it is good to know how to get around, not to mention getting back to where you started:)
