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.

Another Bicycle Adventure.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

Even though we went to bed within minutes of one another last night I managed to be up long before Kathy this morning. I managed to have most of my reading finished before going to give her a Kiss. Within minutes she was joining me for breakfast.
Looking outside even though it was still slightly cool the weather was perfect. Blue Sky with only a slight breeze. We finished our morning chores before getting ready for another afternoon adventure.
Knowing that we would be burning off lots of energy we had Macaroni and Cheese for lunch before topping it off with Oranges, Cookies and a Yogurt Cup for dessert.
That dog looked like a Bear.
We took the time to clean up the Dishes as a way of letting lunch settle. By the time we gathered what we needed to bring with us and brought our Tandem Bicycle in from the Balcony it was just past 1:00.
We had figured an easy way of getting the Freight Elevator. After pushing the button one of the Personal Elevators showed up. Kathy took it to the Main Floor where she could access the one we needed. That should have taken at only Five Minutes but after Twenty Minutes I was starting to worry if something had happen to Kathy. 
That’s when the Freight Elevator Door started opening and there was Kathy along with Jennie. We didn’t think that anyone would be moving in on a Sunday the Third of the month. Kathy had told Jennie we only needed the Elevator to bring our Bike down so Jennie accompanied her up because she had the Key to the Elevator. We thanked her and her friends and got out of their way as quickly as we could.
Today instead of taking the Ganatchio Trail to Tecumseh we wanted to see where it headed in the other direction. Once we crossed Lauzon Road where we turned around the last time we continued on. We were surprised when the path brought us diagonally to Wyandotte Avenue.
Windsor has been adding a number of Bike Trails and Bike Lanes over the last few years making it safer for Cyclist to ride along with Motorized Vehicular Traffic but unfortunately this part of Wyandotte does not have Bicycle Lanes yet. Also in the last few years the Province of Ontario has made it Law that Motorized Vehicles must “Share the Road” with Cyclists. Kathy was always been fearful of riding with traffic next to her but now that it is Law that we are given space and that I am in control of the Bike she is a lot calmer.

A few times Kathy asked “Where are we going”? All I answered was “You’ll See”. When I turned on Pillette Road heading towards the Detroit River she just thought we were turning to head back. When I crossed Riverside Drive and followed the Bike Path through Reaume Park she asked to take a break.
Vera lives in this building facing the River.
I finally stopped across the street from where our friend Vera lives. We called her number but she wasn’t home. Kathy often tells her how far we go but I’m not sure if she believes us. This way she could have looked out her front window and waved to us.

This part of Riverside Drive also didn’t have any Bicycle Lanes and there was a lot of traffic so we rode on the sidewalks until we turned up Lauzon Road to head back on the Ganatchio Trail. When we saw the U-Haul was still being unloaded we kept going in the direction we took the other day.

We sat across from Sandpoint Beach and had a short rest. We were now half way back to Tecumseh. The temperature had reached 72 F (22 C) and by the number of people out the Trail was quite busy. It was nearly 5:00 by the time I had our Tandem Bicycle covered and tied to the Balcony Railing.
For supper Kathy asked me what I wanted and made me a Grilled Cheese Sandwich. She had her Chocolate Chip Pancakes but had it chopped up before I could get a picture.
Kathy's chopped and stacked Pancake
After watching the 6 o’clock Local News we watched a Murder Mystery, Charmed and Outlander. I’m certain we’ll sleep tonight. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

A little boy surprised his grandmother one morning by bringing her a cup of coffee he made himself. He anxiously waited to see if she liked the coffee, his grandma had never had such a bad coffee. As she forced down the last sip she noticed three little green army men in the bottom of the cup. "Honey why are there little green arm guys in the bottom of my cup?"

The grandson replied, "You know, Grandma, it's like on TV, the best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup."


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful day and got a lot of exercise. Too bad Vera was not home to see you guys.

    What a cute story in your Crackers segment :-)

  2. Nice that you have bike paths to ride. Around here it's just too narrow roads with fast cars. Oh to have some mac n cheese!!

  3. It's nice that you two got out for some biking, it was a perfect day for it. We had a lot of wind but you must not have had that to deal with.

  4. Bike riding has always been a favorite type of exercise for me.
