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.

Using A Merry Thanksmas Gift, More Errands and Still Looking for Keys.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

We surprised ourselves by being in bed before midnight last night tucked under our toasty warm Bed Cover and Sheets. The problem with that is we were so toasty and comfortable that we didn’t wake up until after 8:30 this morning.

It was cool enough that Kathy enjoyed her hot cereal for breakfast to warm up with. The time at the Computers was just long enough to drink our hot Coffee/Tea and read our E-mails. After finishing our inside chores, I made certain different items were in the Car as well as seeing that I had the paint to finish the Bicycle Carrier
Some trees in the park are already bare while others are just changing colour.
By 11:00 we were headed towards Windsor with a more moderate list of Places To Go and things To-Do then the other day. The first stop was the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 594 on Howard Avenue. I’ve been planning to stop there to pay my yearly dues since the beginning of September but we always seem to be running late or we just weren’t in the neighbourhood. Having my Membership Card with me while traveling in the US allows us to use V.F.W. facilities. Ron was happy to explain to me that our new Cards are more durable and I’ll now be able to pay On-Line.

Traffic in Windsor was really bumper to bumper today and all the Construction Vehicles on the road made for even slower travel. It was past 12:30 by the time we drove to East Side Mario’s for Lunch. For one of our Merry Thanksmas Family Celebrations we received a Gift Card so we had the chance to enjoy something other then Fast-Foods while eating out. The Chicken Fettuccini was delicious and because it was on the Lunch Menu it was properly portioned. 

We then stopped at Value Village on the east end of town as Kathy said my Levi Denim Jacket was looking a bit worn. I thought this would be a total waste of time but when I went to the Men’s Section of the store there was a Levi Denim Jacket in just my size, priced reasonably and it looked like it was hardly used. We spent a bit of time looking around the Halloween Costumes but passed as nothing seemed to appeal to us.

It was nearly 2:00 when we were finally headed to Guardian Storage. Because this was Friday and late into the afternoon we knew we’d be getting the last of this week’s Mail. We also drove back to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit. We had some Supplies from our site that cannot be frozen to leave behind as well as having to pick up other items that we’ll be needing in the Desert this coming winter. 
Driving east on Riverside Drive.
As mentioned on Tuesday evening I managed to lose my set of Trailer Keys from my Key Clip. Those are the Keys that are needed when I’m using the Car, Truck or our Bicycle and rather then having my own duplicate set I just kept them separate on the Clip. We drove back to a few of the locations that they might have fallen off but had no luck. We asked at the Service Desks of a few businesses without luck as well. We’ll simply have to find the other keys to make not one but two sets to avoid any future problems like this.

Back on Walker Road we stopped at the Second Value Village where again there was nothing appealing to us as far as the Halloween Costumes went.

Our next stop was at Canadian Tire where a quick stop in the Automotive Section I was able to get what is needed to fix the Car.

We’ve notice a problem with the Rotary Stand for our Spices so we drove over to Home Outfitters. They carry every kitchen gadget you can imagine but not our present Rotary Stand which is where we bought it in the first place.

Going next door to the Zehrs Super Store we picked up the supplies we’ll need to make our contribution for the upcoming Halloween Party at our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa’s next weekend. We also picked up a few things to hold us over until we head south in less than two weeks.

It was past 5:00 by the time we left Zehrs and we were stuck in Rush-Hour Traffic. We were starting to feel hungry but neither of us wanted to cook so we headed to the Michigan Diner in Essex. Since it was Friday we both ordered off the Seniors Menu and got Fish and Chips with Onion Rings rather then Fries. We were well satisfied but not stuffed.

We drove over to the Home Hardware Building Center looking for a Rotary Stand but had no luck. We were surprised to see they are already selling Christmas Decorations
Another nice ending to a beautiful day.
It was past 7:00 by the time we got back Home and managed to get everything unpacked and put away. There’s still a lot to do before we leave so hopefully we get a lot of it finished tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
