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.

Back to Work this morning the first thing we needed to do was to start fine tuning the project. That meant anything from smoothing edges, to making adjustments and making total changes. A Hydraulic Specialist from another company was even brought in to see if he could get the system to work the way they had designed it.

After the morning Break others were brought over so that the unit could be manually lifted to its final mounting spot. After the final connections were made it was all elbow grease cleaning it off with Rubbing Alcohol even removing Foot and Finger Prints from the Aluminium.

Today was a special day at the Plant. Normally on the Last Friday of every month they have a Barbecue for their employees during the warmer months. This time they waited a week so it would fall on the Friday before the Long Weekend. They had Hamburgers, Sausages, Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, Pickles, Nacho Chips and Pop. I was more then happy to have a Hamburger with Potato Salad and the Pop while others filled their plates a few times.

Some of the guys heard Gerry our Supervisor ask about the Fifth-Wheel Hitch in our Truck and my response. They couldn’t believe that we lived in it and we headed south in the Winter. When I told them about being in the Desert totally “Off the Grid” they were asking what I was doing there instead of being on the road. My answer was that it all comes at a cost and last winter our Truck cost us big time.

Having a few minutes before going back to work I called Kathy at Home. She had just gotten back from Windsor where the Credit Union spent time fixing our Account Security Passwords. They even had trouble to get it to work properly. Once she got Home she was able to do our On-Line Banking with no further problems. We’ll see how it goes next month.

At 1:30 the First Proto-Type was on its way to the Customer. After the next Three we all hope they like what we produced. If they do it could mean at least another Two Hundred Units.

That was also the time I was told that my area was being relocated to the other shop. It took a lot of cleaning and disposing of Scrap Pieces left behind by the previous welder. By the end of the day the only thing left is to have an Electrician add some Plugs for the Welding Machines.

At Home Kathy and I had a chance to visit before I grilled a Store Bought Spinach and Mozzarella Thin Crust Pizza for supper. It didn’t take long and was done exactly the way we like it.

It’s been a while so this evening we watched the movie “Code Of Honor” starring Steven Seagal. It was not the normal role that we are used to seeing him in but it kept you wondering what would happen next. There was some Nudity and lots of Graphic Violence but we gave it a Nine out of Ten.

We are wishing all our readers an Enjoyable Civic Long Weekend.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Witty Words of Wisdom

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.


  1. I rather imagine they are VERY happy you walked in their door.

  2. You sound rather pleased with your new job and the work you are doing. That is a good thing for sure.

  3. I think you are the best thing that happened to your current employer.

    Enjoy your Civic Long Weekend.
