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.

Comfortable Start To Our Day, Our Money To Cyber Heaven, Voting, Dental Appointments and Tasty Supper.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Once again the temperature dipped low enough last night that we had to shut the Windows and Roof Vents in order to keep warm. It seemed to do the trick because we both slept extremely well. I was up before 8:00 and went through my routine of opening Window Shades and getting things ready for breakfast before turning on my Computer. That was when I realized it was time to open the Windows themselves as the temperature had risen to 64 F (18 C) before 8:30 with a forecasted high of 75 F (24 C) for the day.

With the Credit Union having redone their On-Line Backing Page on the weekend Kathy had been unable to pay our bills On-Line. After we’d finished having breakfast the first thing she did was to attempt to access our accounts. What we have learned is that due to our using our Verizon Jetpack Internationally it slows down to 3G speeds after the first 1.2 MB which we were never told would happen. That meant that every time that Kathy would just get into our Bank Accounts the Jetpack would drop the connection.

Since we needed to go Vote in the Provincial Election in Windsor we decided to go to Tecumseh and use our daughter Karen’s WiFi. It was past 11:30 when we got to Tecumseh so we stopped at Wendy’s and ordered Chicken Wraps off their Value Menu. By asking for a Senior’s Soft Drink it was Free. Even though it was a lite meal it was filling enough.

When we got to Karen’s house our buddy Sanford was more then happy to see us. Kathy had no problem with the connection but did have problems with the changes that the Credit Union made to their Site. Finally, after making payments to our other accounts the Page went Blank. At that point we were quick to pack up her Computer and head for the Credit Union.

When we walked in, there was a line up of people having problems with their accounts as well. Suddenly there were a bunch of Financial Advisors coming out and bringing people to their Cubicles to help them out. We made it to Marlene the Senior Teller and explained our delima. Try as much as she could there was no way of fixing our account. Just then she spotted one of the Computer Technicians that had worked on changing the system over. Brian took his time explaining to the Three of us what had happen and how to look up Histories as well as Changing Our Accounts Names. The important part was that our Account was not Blank and our money had not gone to Cyber-Heaven.

Leaving there it was only a couple of blocks to the School that was being used as our Polling Station. After simply showing our ID and our Registration Cards we were able to Vote. They are using a new Scanning Machine that tabulates the Votes as they occur and will E-Mail the results minutes after the Polls close.

We made a nature call at McDonalds but because it was getting Hot and we’d had a lite lunch we each walked out with one of their Ice Cream Cones that helped to cool us down a bit.

We were Home by 1:30 which meant we didn’t have to rush brushing our teeth because we had to go to our Dental Appointment in Amherstburg for 3:00. Once we were on the way we only needed to stop twice for the School Buses bring children home from School.

We arrived early for our appointments but that worked out fine as they were running ahead of schedule. We had our teeth cleaned before Sean came in to check for any problems. We both have another appointment within the month.

It was past 4:30 and feeling Hot when we left but instead of going to the Golden Arches we went to Soup and Salads just down the street. We both enjoyed a Bowl of Soup and shared a Greek Wrap. These things are so tightly packed that we were both full when we headed for Home. Healthy and Tasty in the same sentence.

When we walked in the Trailer, even though the Windows had been open we had to start the fans to circulate the air. When I checked The Weather Network it showed a Humidex of 92 F (33.5 C). Definitely warmer then the original forecast.

More errands tomorrow before we can slow down for a few days. 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 mullet is longer than your resume.


  1. I wish it was 92 here it would be like winter for us. Glad they fixed your banking problem that is always such a worry when you can't pay your bills on time.

  2. At times when you have computer problems it make you wish everything was back like the old days.

  3. My credit union just revamped the entire process also. Luckily mine is working well. No problems so far. I had no idea Verizon would slow you down like that. I don't remember mine doing that when I went to Canada ... weird!
