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.

Healthy Heals, 111, More Headaches and Hi-Ho.

Click on the pictures to Enlarge.

Last night before going to Bed we actually closed all the Roof Vents and only left the Windows slightly open downstairs. With the Temperature dropping down to 50 F (10 C) we even kept the Bedcover on because the summer bedding is not made for the cold.

Even though we didn’t set the Alarm we were still up by 8:00 giving us time to have a relaxing breakfast before buckling down to readying the Trailer for Mary from Healthy Heals. She arrived promptly at 10:30 and set about working on Kathy’s feet making certain she was comfortable. Due to Kathy’s Diabetes this Home Care Service is covered under our Health Care Provider and is totally refundable.

Once she left it was close enough to noon that Kathy heated up the last of the Pepper Steak for our lunch, that she had made the other day. With it sitting in the refrigerator the flavours tend to meld together making it taste better than the day it was made. After cleaning the Dishes, we had a bit of time to finish our reading on the Computers before leaving after 3:00.

Our destination was the Canadian Blood Services in Windsor where I was scheduled to make my “111 Donation”. After Jim replaced the Ground Cable yesterday the Car seemed to be running better then it has since we got Home back in March. Since our MiFi would not allow me to fill out the On-Line Survey this morning I had to do it on the Pad in the center. With everything being Computerized these days it surely speeds things up. Even after having an OJ and Cookies we were leaving by 4:30.

Now we planned to go to the Credit Union to get that mess with our Cards straightened around. When I turned the Key in the Ignition and Nothing. This should not have been happening but it was. I tried again in disbelief but it was still nothing. Since we were only Four Blocks away I called Jim at Windsor Gas and Diesel. He said he’d be right over and was there in Five Minutes. How many Mechanics still make Service Calls? He immediately removed the Air Filter Housing reached inside and pulled on the Positive Lead. With a turn of the Key the Car started immediately. If we had left the Car with him longer yesterday he would have replaced that Cable as well but hoped the Negative Lead was the only problem. Now the Car will be put up on the Hoist to remove the Battery through the Wheel opening. That’s why he didn’t do it yesterday.

Driving back to Windsor Gas and Diesel with Jim following we simply left the Car. Have you figured out how we got Home yet? The Truck was ready and waiting for us. Jim took the time to explain what he replaced and recommended putting the New Tires we recently had installed on the Front and the Front Tires back in their spot as Duals. That would prolong the life of all the Tires as well. We still don’t have a clue as to how much this is costing but Jim knows we’ll pay up when he figures it out. Still having to return to the Windsor area for the next Three Days I’m certain we’ll be bringing the Car back with us on one of those trips.

It was past 5:30 so we headed for Home but those Cookies and Lunch were long gone so we stopped at the Hi-Ho/Michigan Diner on Walker Road. The Hi-Ho brand was very famous in the Windsor area back in the 40’s to the early 70’s but slowly disappeared with the introduction of the Fast Food Chains that precook most of their foods. With the Hi-Ho everything was cooked fresh. There is a move on to bring back at least Three of the Seven locations back to Windsor. We enjoyed our meal and were soon on our way Home.

Tonight’s Temperature will dip to 48 F (9 C) for a low. We thought this was late spring. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
