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.

Independent Projects and Two Visits.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada. 

We don’t know what happened but neither of us got much sleep last night. We had left the windows and vents open but there was hardly any breeze. Of course if you don’t sleep at night you sleep later in the morning so by the time we got our inside chores finished it was time to have lunch. 

As soon as we’d finished eating we were both outside with our own chores to do. Kathy started drawing Sunflowers and leaves on our patio where the base paint colour had chipped off. Even with the help of our easy-kneeler bench Kathy had a hard time standing back up and with no clouds in the sky she had to retreat into the shade to get out of the direct sunlight that she is allergic to. 
I had the easier job. Last weekend I struggled to clean the roof on the trailer because it just doesn’t turn white the way it used to. Being bent over on my hands and knees scrubbing until our neighbour Larry came over and gave us some tips about new products to make the job easier. Today I had to finish that job by removing our Max-Air Covers and scrubbing the roof around the roof-vents. The last time they were cleaned was last spring before we went to North Carolina. The vent lids and the covers were so dirty they no longer let light shine into the trailer. Kathy noticed the black streaks running down the sides of the trailer as I rinsed the soapy water off the roof. Since I’ll be back up there tomorrow I only clipped the covers back in place. 

Around 4:00 our neighbour Eileen who was just returning from the library stopped to talk. She expressed that when she looks out her window we were always busy doing something so she had waited to come to visit with us. Ted her husband who had just finished playing golf joined us and we talked about our pasts and what were the plans for the future. Close to 5:00 they headed home. 

Kathy suggested we close up for the day. Her plan was for us to beat the Father’s Day crowds this weekend and celebrate tonight. After washing up we headed to the 19th Hole Restaurant where we enjoyed one of their many Fish Friday meals they had to offer. The food was delicious but the company was the best.  

We were home on time for the 6 o’clock News where they actually had some good news for a change. We then watched one of our favourite Who-Done-Its before going outside to water the seeded areas of grass around the patio. 

There was not a stitch of wind and the leaves just hung from the trees but it was comfortable enough to just sit outside on the patio relaxing. That’s when our neighbour Bob came over and started talking to us. Then we went over to his place where Sherri his wife came out and we just kept visiting. Before we realized it was nearly 10:30. We’ll be seeing more of them this weekend. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time. 


You Might Be a Redneck If 

Your TV has been permanently on for over a decade.


  1. It is nice the more you are outside around your site enjoying the fresh air, the more people you will meet, have fun.

  2. No reason Father's Day can't be celebrated early, late or even every day.

  3. We noticed through the years that time just flies when we travel. You start talking to neighbors and before you know it, it's time for bed. Keep enjoying the good life.
