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.

Crammed Day, Getting Things Accomplished And Explanation.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada. 

By the time we hit the sack last night we had been exposed to so much fresh air that we were both out before our heads hit our pillows. Luckily Kathy had taken a Tylenol to sooth her aching muscles and joints that she had over used yesterday. We were both up by 8:00 this morning and only spent a few minutes checking our E-mails and doing the everyday chores before loading the car and heading out by 10:30. With the threat of possible thunderstorms for this afternoon we couldn’t really get too involved with outdoor chores. So armed with our lists we tried to get our running completed in one day.  
Another Lily has opened on our plant.
Our first stop in Windsor was Michaels where we again found a nice blue coloured paint that Kathy can use on her patio art.  She even thought of trying to use a template to speed up the process but there wasn’t anything that fit the theme she wanted. 

A quick stop at the Dollar Store looking for simple outside tree ornaments to stop the birds from making nests and defecating on our vehicles proved fruitless. Driving across the parking lot to Home Depot we managed to get a good sized bag of Scott’s Grass Seed to help build up the grass at our site but they had no tree ornaments either. We found plenty of Wind Chimes but the trees we want to hang them on are only yards away from our neighbour’s bedroom and we didn’t think they would appreciate listening to the clatter all night. Before leaving we stopped at the instore Subway outlet where we shared a foot-long Pulled Pork Sandwich. 
Our next stop was Windsor Gas & Diesel. When we had the Safety and Emissions tests done in May, Jim had failed to charge us for the Emissions test. He doesn’t do the test on site so when his accountant asked why he was paying for it he had to correct the mistake. Besides we’d rather pay for the test and keep a reliable mechanic that we can trust available. 

We then stopped at Guardian Storage where we first gathered our mail and then we went to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit to do some shopping. Since we had stockpiled toiletries and other things while in the apartment, the first place we go to shop is our storage unit. We are starting to use up many things that we’ll have to start buying at a store. 

We drove over to Princess Auto looking for the special connectors I need to finish rewiring our Pinbox. They only carried those connectors in a huge kit of which I already have everything else. We then went to Electrozad where I ran in to the same problem. 

We finally went to Walmart where we scratched three necessities off our list. We also stopped at the instore McDonalds where we shared a pop for a dollar. A stop at the Tecumseh Home Hardware Building Center yielded the connectors I was looking for as well as a tree ornament that should keep the birds from building their nests in nearby trees.  

One more stop at the Zehrs grocery store proved to be the costliest stop of the day as Kathy needed to replenish a lot of the food stocks we had been using up.  
Now the trip Home should have been a simple drive up Manning Road but that didn’t happen. When we reached County Road 42, Manning Road was blocked off by the police. Luckily in the last year I’ve been travelling a lot of the back roads and was able to get us home in time to watch the 6 o’clock News where they explained about a bad accident closing Manning Road.  We saw some black clouds in the distance but no rain fell at the park. The weather guessers are still saying there is an overnight chance of rain. Who Knows? 
In answer to a comment we are only staying in Ontario for the summer this year while we get things repaired on the truck and trailer. For three years we went to Florida as Snowbirds escaping the winter weather experienced in our region. We have travelled to the U.S. southwest during the heat of the summer but this coming fall we will be heading to Nashville before heading west as Snowbirds. We plan to reach Arizona and California before returning through New Mexico to Texas then to New Orleans. We like to explore and may not see everything the first time through an area so we’ll probably be heading back there for a number of years. 
As for our present location this allows us to be close to our families and family doctors. As long as our health allows we’ll continue living as Fulltime RVers. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.
