Snowy Errand Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After having a few necessary mornings of getting up early we had a chance to sleep in until nearly 8:00 this morning. Once breakfast was completed we spent only a few minutes on the computers before 9:00. A few minutes later I was speaking to John Vasko at Dominion Collision body shop in Windsor. We have been dealing with John for well over Twenty Years on all our vehicle repairs. I explained the car had a damaged door from a break-in and without any hesitation he said to bring it in as soon as I could.
The hardest part of getting it there was cleaning the 6” of snow off the car and the truck. That chore alone took nearly an hour as there was a good layer of ice as a bottom layer. The apartment manager stopped by while I was still cleaning the car to inform me that the security video of the back parking lot had been sent to the police department for their scrutiny and hopefully a resolve to the crime of damage to our car as well as theft of another car from the lot. With the chore of cleaning the snow off our vehicles completed I returned to the apartment to get Kathy.
Theives bent the top of the door to break into Kathy's car.
She drove the truck while I drove the car. I had the heater running full blast in the car but because top of the passenger door being bent out 6” it felt like the AC was running. Once the paper work was filled in at the body shop the car was brought right in to the shop to start the repairs and they are guaranteeing we’ll have it back before we head south.
Buckled Window Frame on door. Amazingly the window didn't break.
Kathy had another appointment with the Podiatrist this afternoon so we stopped at the golden arches for a quick lunch. We were lucky enough to have received coupons in our morning mail which helped to keep our costs down.
Not a very good seal at the top of the door.
By 2:00 this afternoon Kathy’s Podiatrist said her toe was heeling nicely and for us to enjoy our trip down south. With our January 7th departure for Florida now only 12 days away we have lots to prepare but enjoy dreaming of the end results.

Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
