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.

Sticker Shock!

Our Location today is at the Alamogordo/White Sands K.O.A. NM.

This is getting to be a bad habit waking up by 7:00 in the morning when in fact there is no hurry to go anywhere. Once we finished breakfast we settled in to get caught up on our morning reading on the Computer. When we were satisfied with that we concentrated on things we needed. Kathy was able to find the Receipt from this past March when we had a problem in St Louis. After carefully reading we wanted to get over to Vision Ford to discuss this finding with them.
It was nearly 10:00 when we arrived and Darla wanted to talk to us so insisted we wait in the lounge for a few minutes. When she came back she introduced us to Richard the Mechanic who is working on our Truck. He had some questions for us and then he gave us a rundown of what the problem was. He even raised the Truck on the hoist to show us what was happening. It was the first time Kathy has ever seen the Truck from that angle. By the time he finished explaining it all we weren’t too happy but knew we weren’t being steered astray. They would work out the estimate and E-mail us before 5:00 today.

We stopped at Wendy’s to have our late lunch off the Value Menu. This gave us a chance to talk over what we were facing. We’ll make a few adjustments but things will work out.

Back Home Kathy started making Gift Entries on our Spreadsheet that she uses to be make certain everyone we give Christmas Gifts to gets equal number of Gifts and in the same price range all while getting them Gifts that suit each individual.
I changed the bedding and then went over to the Laundry Room to take care of that. It was close to 4:30 when I returned with everything folded to find Kathy getting ready to make supper. She figured we needed some comfort food so she made Spaghetti for tonight.

Minutes before 5:00 Darla from Vision Ford called saying that she had E-mailed the Estimate. While talking to her on the phone we both took a deep breathe when we saw the numbers ($$$$$) and that’s only if there’s no problem with something else.

Looks like we’ll be here another week. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Ask a silly question:

How come Americans choose from just two people to run for president and fifty for Miss America?
