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.

Getting Errands Run, Finding Movies “On Sale”, I Gave Kathy The Wrong Wrap.

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

Even though today was the start of a Civic Long Weekend and the Alarm was not set I was awake by 5:30 this morning. Still feeling worn I managed to fall back to sleep until 7:00. After getting things ready for breakfast I was almost finished my morning reading on the Computer when Kathy came downstairs an Hour later. With errands needing to be run we figured out where we had to go before completing our inside chores.
We deliberately waited until 11:30 before leaving the Park. It was nice seeing the Horses next door helping to bring the tall grass back to a reasonable height. Years ago Windsor had quite the booming Horse Racing Track that was visited by many US Breeders and their Horses but with our Provincial Governments ill thought out planning they forced its closure and now all that remains is an empty field where the building once stood.
Our first stop in Windsor was for lunch at Burger King. With the coupons our son and daughter-in-law gave us this is the second meal we had used them for. By the time we were sitting down to eat the place really filled up and not just with people wanting to eat but the little ones wanting to climb around the inside playground.
Our next stop was at Guardian Storage to collect our Mail. When it comes to collecting the Mail that is normally my chore. Since I’ve returned to Work and Kathy might be in the area for Medical Appointments I had to show her where it was and to explain the code to the Mail Room.
Even with errands as our main objective we also wanted to get out and walk around. I wanted to check something out so we stopped at Princess Auto. Even though it has a lot of Tools and even some Farm Supplies in stock they always have plenty of things to keep Kathy’s interest in the Surplus Section. The only thing we walked out with was a new Mouse for my Computer.
We have quite a few Gift Cards to use to see movies at the Cineplex so we headed over to the Devonshire Mall to see what was playing. We are not into Horror so there was nothing of interest for us. We walked into the Mall and checked out the Two Video Stores that were nearby. We came Home with Seven Videos that were “On Sale” cheaper then what the Senior’s Rate was to get in to see a single show.

We drove past the House we used to own and could not believe how the Shrubs and Trees have grown almost out of control while the Maple Tree that was in the back yard has been removed.
A quick stop at Dollarama got us a few supplies we needed. It seemed everyone else in the area thought the same thing because even with Four Cashiers working it took nearly Ten Minutes to check out.
We then headed over to the Real Canadian Superstore to stock up on a lot of groceries we’ve been going through. As we were about to leave we stopped to talk with Barry a volunteer Legion Member who was doing his turn at getting Donations. The Donations are for the additional treatment of PTS (Post Traumatic Stress) for our returning Veterans. Another Budget Cut our Federal Government made. Kathy’s Father was a Prisoner Of War in a Nazi Prison Camp and was never the same when he returned.
It was after 4:00 and we had walked enough that we were starting to feel hungry so we stopped at Wendy’s for supper. It’s hard to beat the price when we can both eat cheaper then a single Combo by ordering off the Value Menu, having Senior’s Soft Drinks and getting their Summer Priced Frosties. Unfortunately I mistakenly gave Kathy my Spicy Chicken Wrap. Even though she only took a single bite her mouth was on fire until long after we got Home.
It was after 5:00 by the time we got back to the Park and on to our Site. Our Park has Two Swimming Pools but our neighbours Mike and Pat have their own Blow-Up Pool for their small grandchildren. It seemed the youngest was not having any of that until grandpa Mike joined him in the Pool. Even Mike was chuckling when Kathy took his picture.

For a day off it has truly been a busy one. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

You Might Be a Redneck If

Your baby shower includes a keg and poker.


  1. Horses sure do a good job of cutting the grass. I miss Walter (our neighbors horse) who would come graze at mom's house and save me a ton of work and money.

    Loved the picture of Mike and his grandson :)

  2. Even though you were busy, I bet it felt good to be off work and running around.

  3. You guys watch a lot of movies. So much better than what's on television nowadays. Are those all ones you picked up on sale? You must have a huge stash!!!
