It's about time.

Sleeping Late, Fixing On-Line Problem and Virus Cases.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

I truly dislike that when I go to bed early I seemed to sleep later in the morning then was planned. Yes we did it again. When we were sitting having our Muffin for breakfast Kathy asked what time I got up. She had to give her head a shake when I said she got up at the same time as me. That meant we only needed to have a single cup of our morning beverage to see us through until lunch. Yes it was that late.
With most of my On-Line reading and morning Chores done it was time to start making lunch. Wanting something slightly different I remembered seeing what someone else had the other day gave me a clue. While the Toast were down I sliced the Bacon, Cheese and Tomatoes. Kathy outdid herself by microwaving Baked Apples for dessert that she served along with Grapes and Yogurt Cups. I felt like I waddled away from the table.
With this being the First of the month it was time to get the issue with Kathy being able to do our On-Line Banking fixed. After calling the computerized call directory I was soon talking to a live person. Once I explained the situation she spoke to Kathy to have authorization to unlock the account. Then with me back at the Computer Five Minutes later I was saying Thank You and Kathy was On-Line with her new password. Fifteen Minutes later Kathy had finished our banking.

The first time we went to Quartzsite Kathy and I met and became Friends with Wayne from Washington State. It wasn’t until the day we were heading home that we met his wife Sue. We exchanged E-mail Addresses and kept in touch. The following year we ate Christmas Dinner at Families Times Three Restaurant along with having a number of Campfires together. Again we kept in touch through the summer and both Sue and Wayne were reading our Blog. That Fall was when we had serious Mechanical Problems with the Truck but even through all that and a little exploring on our part we still managed to repeat the Christmas Dinner with them that year. The problems still continued and even after the Mechanic at the dealership in Yuma made it worse it was Wayne who figured out the problem.

Since I was still working last Fall Kathy suggested we find an Apartment and stay around for the Winter. Little did we know that I had been hired for the particular job. (A new way of doing business.) Unfortunately we were not able to meet with Wayne and Sue even though he jokingly taunted us from Quartzsite. Then the Coronavirus struck and most of our Canadian Snowbird Friends had to get back to Canada. At present it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing Wayne and Sue again this year but are looking forward to the day we can.

Today was another of those E-mail days with a Very Good Friend. Hopefully if not this year we will see them again in the near future.

While Kathy started reading a book I spent a bit more time on the Computer letting lunch settle down before getting to working out. I only did a Single Set of Double Repetitions this time as a way of saving time but it worked. No more Aches or Pains.

While we were watching the 6 o’clock Local News Kathy made Macaroni and Cheese for our supper. Our area is still seeing new Virus Cases but not as much as before even though more businesses are opening up. They are crediting the declining numbers to the fact people are wearing Masks that helps to stop the spread. They also noted new Hot-Spots and crediting them to Super Spreader Events such as Parties, Beaches and Political Gatherings where there is no Social Distancing nor Masks being worn.
This evening the Thunder rolled in and large Puddles filled the parking lot. The forecast is for this system to continue giving us Rain overnight. We’ll see what we can do tomorrow. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

I thought I’d tell you a good time travel joke, but you didn’t get it.


  1. Sometimes you meet some wonderful people along the way. I have met some people who have become great friends at the cook-off and who I look forward to seeing every year. Unfortunately, due to Coronavirus, I will not get to see them this year.

    In Texas, the face mask mandate has certainly helped us curve our COVID-19 cases. I only hope people continue to wear them and do not let their guard down this Labor Day weekend.

  2. Mac 'n cheese? No fair!!!! My all time favorite! Sorry you have continued problems with your banking. Surprisingly, I've never had any trouble. I certainly consider myself lucky in that respect.

  3. I consider the people we've met (both online and in person) the years we fulltimed to be our greatest benefit. Some we have passed, some we have failed to keep in contact with, some we communicate on a somewhat regular basis. Each person on that journey has added joy to our life.

  4. Glad you got your banking figured out. Nice that you made the friends you did. Hear anything on the Jayco yet?
