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 Try At Amazon and A Free Car Wash.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

With the sound of Rain tapping on our roof I kept telling myself that 6:00 was too early to get up. Each time I rolled over and blinked my eyes it seemed the Clock would move by a Half Hour. I was up opening the Window Shades before 8:00 even though the AC was busy trying to keep us cool. By 8:15 Kathy was coming downstairs to join me for breakfast. It seemed that the Rain stopped but the Heavy Clouds and distant Thunder just hung around acting as a deterrent for the Golfers.

With nothing really planned and with the weather we did inside chores. Kathy hadn’t read our Blog before going to bed last night as she was more tired than I was. When she asked me this morning what model our new Car was and I responded an Escape, she then asked why I called it an Edge in last night’s Blog. I was more tired than I thought. After a little Blog editing nobody can say we stole their Car. 
Kathy loves that Burning Bush. The Rabbits ate ours.
After taking care of other physical jobs I started doing some On-Line research. Last fall and winter we ordered on Two separate occasions a Backup Camera System from Amazon. The first one was bounced back and forth across the US by UPS. We extended our stay waiting for that package another week before UPS claimed they had lost our merchandise. It arrived a week later and UPS wanted us to drive to Phoenix to pick it up. Not! The second one was shipped by USPS but the Post Office kept returning it to the Vendor. Amazon cancelled that order after Two Months. But we still received notice that it was delivered in Arizona the day after Easter when we were already staying at our Daughter’s house in Tecumseh. 
Humidex made it feel much Warmer.
By trying to find a Backup Camera System on turned in to a real challenge. I thought that by saying things like RV, Truck, Semi or Wireless would help to find them quicker. It caused a lot of Zero Results Found instead. After finding a number of likely options I’ve learned to put them into My Wish List so they are easier to locate. Then after reviewing those options the order was placed and it should be here by Friday the 13th. That sounds good doesn’t it? What could go wrong? I should have it installed before having my Cataract Surgeries in August. 

By 5:30 we were out the door for our weekly visit with our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa. Normally we do this on Wednesdays but due the death of a friend we rescheduled. We always have a lot to talk about and have plenty to laugh about. We had the chance to see Kevin’s new Ram 1500 they got to tow their Travel Trailer with and Melissa got to see our Escape for the first time. By that time the sky was filling with Clouds and the sound of distant Thunder could be heard so we headed for Home.

We didn’t make it far before the Rain started hitting the Car with the intensity of a Car Wash. After sitting for Ten Minutes and waiting we finally made a run for it to get inside getting wet in the process. The Rain stopped Five Minutes later. 

We’re setting the Alarm tonight because tomorrow is going to be a busy one. 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

The fountain at your wedding spewed beer instead of champagne.


  1. We picked up a backup camera for our truck camper at the show in Quartzsite. Tadi Brothers has a booth there and we figured if we had a problem we would see them the next year.

  2. Best invention ever. LOVE my system, but it came with the rig. SO much easier to park. I too have the same USPS and UPS problems with Amazon. Almost enough to make me quit Amazon altogether.

  3. I hope all goes well with this delivery, I remember all the problems you had last winter. I have never had a delivery problem as a matter of fact I ordered something last week and delivery was due July 3 when my daughter checked my mail Sunday the box was in.

  4. Just bought a new back up camera and gps in May for our truck. Going to be a lot of good buys in the November yard sale.
