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.

All Day Wind, Not Looking Well And Waiting For An Answer.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

After having a very busy day we both slept late it was only fitting that we woke to the sound of the lawnmowers cutting the grass at the golf course just after 7:00 this morning. At first I thought it strange that such a distant sound would wake me when then the trailer shook. Did something just hit the trailer? With the addition of Strong Arm Stabilizers I installed last year not too much can move our Home like what I had just felt. Then it did it again accompanied by the sound of strong wind. Glancing out the windows I witnessed the normally composed trees on the surrounding sites looking like they were in a dance completion with wild gyrations in every conceivable direction.
I’d completed most of my morning reading by the time Kathy got up just before 8:00.  After breakfast we had only a short time to finish our reading which included checking the Weather Network before heading out. They indicated that we’d actually get closer to seasonal temperatures for the day but we could expect wind gusts up to 35 mph.
We were out the door shortly before 10:00 heading to Windsor for our yearly eye exam. We were a little early but with this being the first time we had driven in from the county for any doctor’s appointments it was better safe than sorry.  David was extremely happy to hear that we had gone Fulltime giving us the opportunity to live our dreams because we had always spoken so excitedly about our travels. After having both our eye exams we were informed that we both have developed Cataract Problems in both eyes. Even though it is not pressing at this time it might be something that will need addressing within the next few years.
Leaving the doctor’s office, we drove over to Princess Auto where I picked a couple of additional double throw electrical switches that are so hard to find at other retail outlets such as The Source and Canadian Tire. Kathy walked around the Surplus Area that normally has a number of things that would be of interest to her but said there was little there that caught her interest today.
It was past noon so we stopped at the Dairy Queen where we enjoyed a satisfying lunch off their value meals which includes an ice cream sundae. Since we have started Fulltiming that is a treat that can no longer be kept in our freezer due to the limited space. With the grill being so busy we had half our sundaes eaten before our order arrived.
Sharing the road with local farmers.
Even though the clouds are not showing in the pictures
look at the flag next to the tractor. The wind only got stronger.
Back Home we had planned on doing additional Landscaping but with the continually high wind gusts we spent the remainder of the afternoon making phone calls and working on the computers. One of those calls I am hoping to get answers for tomorrow will address a question posed to us from another Ontario Fulltimer about Auto Insurance. Finally, as of this posting the winds have died down. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
