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.

Another Hot Day, An Appointment and An Early Celebration.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

When I turned The Weather Network on the Computer at 8:00 this morning I thought there had to be some kind of mistake but when I cracked open the door to feel the 102 F (39 C) Humidex any doubts were dashed from my mind.

We weren’t in any rush so I took care of phone calls and just relaxed making certain that Kathy’s Eye Drops were applied on schedule and attempting to do our On-Line Banking. As soon as I tried to Log-In, their Computer locked our accounts. Did we just hit the Lottery for rotten luck or did they really make a Lemon out of this New Operating System?

The only appointment we had on the Calendar for today was for myself at 4:00 but by 12:30 the Denturists Office was calling to see about coming in early. That put a whole new spin on what we would be doing. 

We were on our way to Windsor shortly after 1:30. By that time the Humidex was only reading 111 F (44 C) so we didn’t plan on any long walks outside. Our first stop was the Canadian Post Office Distribution Center so Kathy could mail off her Medic Alert Information.

We next stopped at Guardian Storage where Kathy stayed in the Car while I went inside to find our Mailbox completely empty.

We arrived at the Denturist Office shortly after 2:00 which gave me time to get the Paperwork filled in. Growing up during the times we did, if we had a Cavity our parents just had it removed rather then repaired and since my Dentures are well worn down and causing problems it was time to see what could be done. It was like shopping for a Car with prices varying from a Cadillac to a Volkswagen and costing nearly as much as the later. With all the extra expenses we’ve had this year they might have to wait a while longer. 

Our next stop was back to the Credit Union where Ashley was able to Unlock our accounts and showed us how to avoid any future problems.

Since Kathy is not supposed to eat after Midnight and it was after 4:30 we went to East Side Mario’s where we both ordered a Chicken Primavera. When our orders arrived the first thing we did was divide them in Half to take Home for another meal this week. We had figured the Pasta would fill us up and take away any cravings for snacking. Even at this late hour we are not the least bit hungry but we don’t think it was just the Pasta.

It was shortly after 5:00 when we arrived at our daughter Rose’s house. Since Rose will be away this summer Training Cadets we had to get together to celebrate D.J.’s birthday early. We also had a chance to talk while we enjoyed a small piece of Birthday Cake that had been picked up for this Impromptu Celebration. 
What kid doesn't like Cake?
It was past 7:00 when we heading Home but we needed to make a stop at the Zehrs Super Store to get a few more groceries. With her Eye Surgery tomorrow Kathy won’t want to be shopping for a while.

Continuing on our way Home there were flashes of Lightning off in the distance and the sky was black from the Clouds but the Heavy Rain is just now starting as I write the Blog. Thanks to everyone’s encouragement to Kathy for her Surgery. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


The World's Great Proverbs

Many a true word is spoken in jest.


  1. All the best to Kathy for her cataract surgery. It aint bad, so don't worry! Looking forward to your next posting.

  2. Wishing Kathy smooth sailing for her eye surgery.

  3. I was happy my banking "reset" was working fine until I discovered I've lost $309. Heading there today to see if I can get it back. 95 feels like 111?? Krikey!!!!!

  4. D.J. is a cutie! Good luck today Kathy!

  5. Kathy good luck on your surgery. Stay cool
