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.

Busy New Years Eve.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Since we are leaving for Florida on January 7th or in 7 days Kathy and I thought that we’d have an easy day. Boy were we wrong! We even slept in until nearly 8:00 this morning. After having breakfast we started reading some of the blogs until shortly after 9:00 when I called Dominion Collision to see what the status was for our car. Surprisingly the repairs to the passenger door that was damaged by the break-in are complete and it is first in the paint booth on Wednesday. This means we can pick it up on Thursday or Friday thus not delaying our departure date.

Next I called SX Video where we have all our computer servicing done. The new laptop that we purchased in November had Windows 7 as an operating system but Google Chrome as the internet search engine. After repeated tries I could not write the blog or make any kind of adjustments to the post using the Google Chrome. I also tried to change to Internet Explorer unsuccessfully. All our other computers had Windows Internet Explorer and I never had any problems writing the blog on them. They told me to bring it in after lunch and they’d fix me right up. 
Greg and Karen having a Anniversary Kiss.
We had a quick little errand to run before stopping at our daughter Karen and son-in-law Greg’s house. We stopped off not only to wish them a Happy New Year but also a Happy 12th Wedding Anniversary. We sat and talked for a bit and had a cup of tea and some finger food for a snack before heading out. We don’t think we will be seeing them again until the spring so we said our goodbyes.

After leaving the kids we headed to Essex to get the computer fixed. In less than 10 minutes Cory had the laptop running the new search engine and I was able to work on the blog on the new computer. They sent me on my way with the greeting of Happy New Year and to have a safe trip.
Sanford still enjoying the toy pig he got for Christmas.
 Since it was nearing 2:00 we stopped at A&W for a special late lunch again using a coupon.

Once back at the apartment I started prepping the laundry and by the time I got to the laundry room had no problems doing the wash. Once I had everything drying I was helping Kathy getting the toiletries and summer clothing packed to bring to the trailer.

 By the time I returned with the folded laundry we were both getting tired and hungry. So for the second time in one day we went out for a late supper at the Swiss Chalet. We used a gift card we received for Christmas and enjoyed a delicious Chicken Wrap dinner.

Kathy and I would like to wish all our readers a
Safe and Happy New Years 
and if you go out and drink to celebrate the occasion please use a designated driver or an alternate way of getting home. We truly would be very sorry to read of anyone getting hurt or worse.
Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Office Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes

The relationship between bosses and assistants is kind of like the one between parents and children: the latter thinks the former is boring, uptight, and uncool; the former finds the latter lazy, selfish, and entitled. They're both a little right and a little wrong.

  1. Happy New Year,
    Too bad you couldn't get Google Chrome to work. I have been using it for a long time, just love the speed it has.

  2. Happy New Year to you also. We are enjoying Florida and the great weather. Not looking forward to returning to Ontario in another week....burrrr!!
