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.

Wet Day, On-Line Banking Finally Works and Another Birthday Celebration.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

After using a Tylenol to guaranty a good night’s sleep I was sleeping so soundly that when the Alarm went off at 7:00 this morning Kathy wasn’t the only one that would have liked to sleep longer. All this so we won’t find it so hard getting up early on Thursday.

We hadn’t even finished eating another Lite Breakfast when the Rain started, slow at first then heavier, back and forth. This pattern would continue throughout the day into the evening. We made it a Two Cup morning while working on the Computers. We finally managed to get the New On-Line Banking Program that the Credit Union installed to finally work for us even though it took both of us to make it do so. 
Our Street was like a small Stream this morning.

Since I knew that we would be getting Home later this evening and we both wanted to take Showers today I did mine after we finished lunch. Neither of us knew what to have for supper since we were heading out around 4:30 so we headed to McDonalds where we each had a Grilled Sweet Chili Wrap and a Strawberry/Mango/Pineapple Smoothie. Filling and fairly Healthy.

Kathy was having a problem before we arrived and was shocked to find she had removed her little emergency Vial from her purse so we made a quick stop at the Shoppers Drug Mart. While standing in line at the Checkout we could see Large Black Clouds heading directly towards the store. We barely closed the Car Doors when the Rain started coming down with Torrential Force. 
Our wipers were on High.

Due to scheduling problems we headed over to our daughter-in-law Jen’s house in Essex. As we were parking the Car the Rain ended. Jen’s sister Melissa was already there but the rest of the gang were on their way. The reason everyone was gathering was to celebrate our youngest grandson Haigan’s 11th Birthday. His Birthday was actually yesterday but not everyone could make it then so it was changed to this evening. Soon Jack and Sue along with Dean and Austin arrived and the party began. He loved all the gifts that he received and showed his appreciation with lots of Hugs. 
Haigan about to blow out his Candles.
It was past 9:00 when we arrived Home and the first thing I did before going inside was to check our Rain Gauge. We totaled 7/8” or nearly .9 of an Inch of Rain just since this morning.

With Surgery on her Left Eye scheduled for 7:00 in the morning Kathy is already in bed and I’ll be there shortly. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Joke of the Day

What is the gambler's heaven?



  1. I'm sure Kathy's surgery will go just as well as the first one. I'll be thinking of her

  2. Good luck Kathy. I'm sure it will be as easy as the first surgery. Then you will be amazed at how well you can see!!!

  3. Good luck on the other eye. Boy you guys have had the rain this year if you look really close in that one pic of the road in the park you'll see a salmon headed up steam

  4. Good luck to Kathy on the surgery. It's never fun. I always feel like staying in bed on rainy days. So most of the time I do!

  5. Haigan sure is a handsome boy! Happy Birthday to him. Kathy is an old pro with this eye thing, now, so she'll get through with flying colors.

    We are having heavy rains and thunder storms ALL day. We never seem to hit things in the middle. It's either drought or flood.

    BTW, for the past 13 years I have not been a "morning person". When I worked, I had no trouble getting up, but I HATE to get up in the morning. The pups are solving the problem. I get up between 6:30 and 7 to tend to Bogey's needs, then head over to Susan's for Jonah. I'm back home for a few hours at 1 pm. and depending upon the day back over to Susan's until she gets home unless she's very late. Then I make an extra trip. Dogs spoiled, much?

    Keep us posted about Kathy.

  6. Nice that your banking is working finally..that wold be so frustrating! Love the name Haigan..never really heard it before. So much rain you guys are getting..hoping surgery went well once again.

  7. Thank for your very good article! i always enjoy & read the post you are sharing!
