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.

Quick Chores and Visits.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

Yes we had another good night’s sleep but again we were awake on both sides of the 7:00 mark on the clock. This morning’s breakfast was a real change of pace because instead of having cereal we finished that wonderful Quiche that Kathy had made yesterday. Needless to say we waddled away from the table as it was a bit much for our style of eating but Kathy didn’t want any of it to spoil.
Once we had checked the Weather Channel’s forecast for today we did our usual morning reading on the computers. Once that was finished I headed for my morning shower and shave while Kathy started sorting the clothes that she will be bringing with us at the end of the month when we head to Florida.
Shortly after lunch we headed to our son Kevin’s in Amherstburg to help him with cleaning his eaves troughs that were frozen last week when I cleaned his chimneys. I gladly do this for him because he does little favors for me that make up for it. During my career I often worked at heights that were much greater than his roof and even though Kevin looks physically fit he can’t climb a ladder. Kevin is not scared of heights but has Rheumatoid Arthritis in his hands and feet making it impossible to grip the ladder. If he were to climb up and lose his balance he would be unable to grab anything to protect himself from falling.

The cleaning went fairly quickly as Kevin loaned me his leaf blower which allowed me to finish the job within ten minutes. It’s also good that we did it today because the temperature will drop below the freezing mark until long after we are gone. I then used the remaining time to load our gear that has to go back to our trailer from his garage. These items had been removed from the trailer before we brought it in for repairs two months ago.
After changing my clothes Kathy and I headed over to Maria’s Restaurant where we met up with our travel companions Gerry and Sandy Bronstein for supper. Other than a short visit earlier this summer this is the first time we have been able to get together. The problem is being retired we are all busy and it’s hard to schedule a time for a visit. The time flew by as tried to catch up on everything we have all been doing as well as plans for the future. 
Since there was still more we all wanted to talk about Gerry and Sandy invited us to their home for an after dinner coffee.  Again the conversations continued with a lot of comparisons of the different technologies that Gerry is learning about and what we are presently using. Time had once again flown by and after hugs, handshakes and see you later we headed on our way.
Kathy and I headed back to Kevin and Melissa’s for our Wednesday night visit. They were ecstatic with the photos that I printed for them yesterday and then we reviewed a spreadsheet that I'm working on for them. The rest of the evening was spent having our usual enjoyable visit that included lots of laughter. 
When we got back to the apartment I noted the parking lights on Grant and Sandy's car on. After I made a few trips unloading the truck I went upstairs to let them know about it so they wouldn't have a dead battery in the morning. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
