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.

Finding Pedals, Social Distancing, Using The AC and Fathers Day Greeting.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

It felt good to be out of bed before 8:00 this morning. There was even a light breeze drifting through the Bedroom Window. The moment I opened the Balcony Door Kathy was jumping out of bed. Breakfast was simply a Muffin before we took our morning drinks to the Computers.

One of things we’ve been looking for was to find the replacement Folding Pedals for our Tandem Bicycle. With the use of Google I was able to find dozens of local Bicycle Shops but the problem was not all of them were open. After making about a Half Dozen Calls I finally located someone who actually carried what we needed.
Within minutes we were on our way out the door. As we all know time changes everything. We ended up blocks away from the house we once owned. We were at Soar Hobby Super Store on Walker Road. Kathy stayed in the Car with all the windows down in the shade of the building. Inside I was the only one wearing a Mask. Looking around they carried everything one could consider to be a Hobby but when I saw an RC Plane with at least a Four Foot Wing Span hanging from the ceiling I immediately thought of Bill Richards from the blog “On Our Way”. It took time before the Pedals were located in their storage building. After nearly an Hour sitting in the Car in very Humid Temperatures Kathy was more then happy to see me.
Our next stop was Dollarama where we had planned on going yesterday but were just too tired. Today we stood outside for nearly a Half Hour so we could safely Social Distance while shopping. Ten Minutes later we managed to find everything we needed and were happy to let someone else take our place inside.
It was nearly 1:00 when we came outside. With another stop to make and the Muffin we had for breakfast long gone we stopped at Wendy’s where using their Drive-Thru we were able to get a couple of Chicken Wraps, a couple of Small Chocolate Frosties as well as a couple of Senior’s Sodas at reasonable price. We sat in the parking lot facing North with the windows down while we ate.
Our next stop was Canadian Tire where we again had to stand in line wearing Masks outside while Social Distancing. There was easily Fifty People ahead of us but we were inside in less then Five Minutes. As soon as you walked in the door you were required to Sanitize your hands. It took some time to find what we needed but then found additional Hand Sanitizer as we approached the Cashiers. If you walked through the Sports Section the Exercise Equipment was almost no existent because of the Coronavirus more people have been investing in their own Equipment.
It was past 2:30 by the time we got back to our Apartment. Even though we had several purchases we managed to haul it upstairs by hand. When we opened the door it felt like being hit by the heat of a furnace. There was no other choice but to turn on our Air Conditioner.
That breeze was Hot.
To relax we got caught up on the Blog Reading we missed this morning. For supper we continued eating more Leftovers. Kathy used Leftover Beef Roast with Leftover Baked Beans mixed on the Leftover Bread she toasted. I used Leftover Pepper and Onion to add to a Ranch Salad for a side. Kathy also served the Leftover Lemon Curd Cake with a Leftover Croissant and Yogurt Cups for dessert.
The 6 o’clock Local News was again preempted so we again watched the 11 o’clock News out of London. Why a Canadian Channel has that problem on Cable TV is beyond belief.
The employees all wore these T-Shirts.
Protect Us Both. Stay 2 Metres Apart. (6 Feet)
Kathy and I would like to wish all the Dads a Happy Fathers Day. Hopefully you can spend it with those you love. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
