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.

Getting Ready and Enjoying A Halloween Party.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Even after getting to bed at a reasonable time last night one could say that I was very upset when after rolling over to look at the clock it was noted to be 9:00 in the morning. Not that we had anything planned for this morning but I’ve been trying to train myself to be up earlier for when we start traveling. Looking outside only to see the heavily clouded sky and water puddles from last night’s Rain made me realize that if the Sunlight wasn’t brightening our windows then we would continue to sleep later. 
Talk about an Inflated Halloween Spirit.
We kept breakfast lite and settled in at the Computers with our Coffee/Tea. After completing our other inside chores, we discussed what we need to accomplish in the next Three Days
Happy Halloween.
Still in a Food Cleaning mood Kathy created Ham and Tomato Wraps to go with the Vegetable Beef Soup she was serving. It was both tasty and filling. 
A Knight and her Drag Queen.

After clearing the dishes off the Table, we worked together to make the Ambrosia Fruit Salad that we would be bringing as our contribution for the Halloween Party’s food table. 
A Spider and a Pumpkin.
When that was complete we cleaned up the dishes in one full swoop and were again left with a clean kitchen. 
Scarecrow and Willie Nelson.
Our choice of Costume this year was quite simple. Since we are headed to the southwest we dressed in our Blue Jeans with our Denim Jackets and Cowboy Hats. I also wore my Bandana that I could easily pull over my lower face but Kathy just didn’t feel comfortable wearing her’s. 
Delinquent Dropout.
It was around 5:30 when we loaded the Truck and headed for our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa’s house in Amherstburg. We were the first to arrive so we got to sit and talk while the kids were still upstairs finishing their makeup. The end result was unbelievable, a stocky Knight and her Drag Queen. The makeup for both was perfect. 
Betty-Boop, Princess and Hippy.
Shortly after 6:30 others started arriving and bit by bit the food table started to fill. We hadn’t eaten supper yet so we were ready to eat but we only had small samples from some of the many dishes that were there to be eaten. A little bit here and a little bit there and before we knew it we had eaten more then at a normal meal. 
The Costumes were imaginative and funny. Some were homemade, some store bought and others were put together from a combination of past parties. Most were family oriented while there’s always one that came dressed as more towards an Adult “X” Rated theme. 
"X" rated with his Dominatrix.
With the heater running in the garage everyone was comfortable. If someone went outside for a smoke they didn’t stay out very long. Conversation flowed freely with subjects ranging from when people were growing up, what the kids were doing in school to taking care of rodent problems. There were so many different conversations going on it was sometimes hard to keep track of them all. It was past 10:00 when we said our Good Nights and everyone was wishing us Safe Travels
Semper Gumby
The first thing we did when we got Home was to turn on the Furnace not only to warm up the inside of the trailer but the Basement and Waste Tanks as well. The temperature will be hitting the Freezing Mark tonight but with the cool breeze it will feel about 7 F (5 C) cooler. We should be safe to turn the Furnace off overnight without anything freezing. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
