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.

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

The Weather Channel was bang on this morning about our area seeing rain most of the day. So after breakfast Kathy and I decided to run errands to the Credit Union and it started to play out like yesterday where we ran into my friend Neal that I haven't seen in almost a year. Like yesterday it was like old home week and the conversation took some time with a final see yas and the promise to get together soon.
This afternoon we busied ourselves filling the storage containers with the condiments and other food stocks needed to fill the trailer pantry shelves. Many of those containers have followed us from one RV to another which proves their worth and adaptability under the different conditions we use them in. That used up two and a half hours of our time and has us on the hunt for different containers to finish the task.
If you recall yesterday was Kathy's Birthday April 29th. For years we have celebrated our birthdays on April 30th. The reason being is my Birthday is May 1st. It works great for us and this year we treated ourselves to supper out at The Keg Steakhouse here in Windsor. The food was fantastic but it is not something we plan to repeat to soon as when you  leave you may weigh at bit more then when you walked in but that is offset by the lightening of your wallet.
On our way home in an attempt to walk off some of our meal we made unsuccessful stops to locate more storage containers for the trailer. We searched a number of different stores only to find other items destined for the trailer but not what we had set out to look for.
Once back home it was back to catching up on reading the blogs we follow and luckily I have set it up so the latest blog to post is at the top of the list which makes it a time saver. I was reading Chappy Trails who I've followed for years and they were a little concerned that nobody was leaving any comments on their blog. People they spoke to and met would always verbally comment about things on their post but would not leave a comment. So I left a comment that I am sure many of us can relate to.
I Commented: When we are helping others with projects as well as our own it cuts into our own personal time. Our personal time involves working on our own rigs, visiting, exploring and reading others blogs, but if you read all the blogs that you have on your sidebar as we sometimes do it takes quite some time. At present we have 164 posts that we follow. First you read all the blogs that post daily and then you return to read the ones who's posts are not as often. Maybe when the day comes that our time belongs totally to ourselves then we might have time to comment on all the blogs that we read.
I believe as many others that sometimes keeping up on others blogs can be time consuming where normal everyday things start taking a backseat to our blogging. So the only way we can manage it all is to read all the posts and only leaving comments when we can find additional time.
Looking at the calendar shows me I only have 34 days before Kathy and I are back on the road travelling this year so I had best get all my projects wrapped up. That also means that Summer is only 51 days away. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.


Office Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes

The boss was yelling at the errand boy who had come in late.

"Don't you know what time we start work here?" asked the boss.

The errand boy answered, "Nope. I've been here three days

and every time I showed up everybody was working already."

  4. You have two birthdays - you need two celebrations! (I'm always looking for a good reason to celebrate.)

    I agree on comments too, I always feel a bit guilty not commenting but it does take a lot of time.
