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, Our Package Has Arrived, More Errands and Two Car Meets.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

When we finally sat down for breakfast this morning we discussed leaving the Air Conditioning on because Mary from Healthy Heals was coming to take care of Kathy’s feet. Since she was booked for around noon we took our time eating then having our Coffee/Tea while at the Computer but that didn’t mean we could Lollygag either. 
A slightly cloudy day.
Just as I was checking my E-Mail to track our Package the phone was ringing. Carol from Guardian Storage was calling to say we had a delivery waiting for us. I actually watched the status change from “Out for Delivery” to “Package Delivered” on the screen. Having only ordered this unit late on Thursday and for it to have already been delivered is amazing, especially after the Two Failed Deliveries in the US.

As soon as things were cleaned up inside I moved the Truck over to the Overflow Parking so that Mary would have a place to park on out Site. Mary is always very prompt at being on time but this morning we were both surprised when she had not appeared. Five Minutes after the appointed time our phone rang to verify our address and when Kathy told her we looked out the window to see Mary’s Car on the Street in front of our Site. Mary had landmarked our Site according to our old Intrepid not the Site Number or how our Trailer appeared. She had even pulled into our neighbour’s site and then left before calling us on the phone. Now she knows to look for our Escape and our Eagle Trailer. 

By the time Mary had finished her handiwork it was nearly 1:30 and we were both getting hungry. We had the Leftover Chicken and Cole Slaw that we had for last night’s supper.

As soon as we’d eaten I went to bring the Truck back to our Site. We had a few things that needed taking care of in Windsor so we were out the door by 2:00. Our first stop was Guardian Storage to pick up our package that was delivered by the Canada Post Office. We then drove back to our Climate Controlled Storage Unit so Kathy could put some files back in our File Cabinet. 

The next stop was at Green Shield where it took Kathy less then a minute to drop off her Claim Form for her foot care from Healthy Heals. We should have the refund in our mail early next week.

From there we went over to our daughter Karen’s to see if they had finished with my Tarp. Greg was already home from work and said that they had accidentally torn it. Not to worry it was old. Then he told us how Friday night Kylla’s Car was damaged by a Hit and Run Driver. Her car was parked behind our old Intrepid and her girlfriend who was visiting was parked behind her. Being that her Car is White it was the only one of the three that was damaged. According to the Insurance Board the colour of the Vehicles most often damaged is White. 

Our next stop was at our friend Kathie’s apartment for a short visit. I promised to modify a couple of Metal Garden Gates for her Patio to act as a Child Gate for when she babysits her granddaughter. Instead of modifying them there I loaded them up to fix back at our Site.

It was past 5:00 when we left and we had more to do so we stopped at Wendy’s where we ordered Two Chicken Wraps from their Value Menu, Two Small Chocolate Frosties and Two Seniors Soft-Drinks for a mere $7.19. It was more then enough to make us feel satisfied. 

Now we needed to pick up materials to modify the Garden Gates. I will make them like Bifold Closet Doors but instead of Screwing the Hinges into the Gates they will be welded. We stopped at the East-End Home Depot and really had to look around. Some of the materials were in the Building Section while others were in the Cabinet Section.

When we were leaving we saw what appeared to be the beginning of a Street Rod/Car Meets in the corner of their lot. We still had plenty to do so we didn’t walk around talking to the owners. 

We needed to mail a letter and since it was on our way we stopped at the Canada Post Office Distribution Center on Walker Road. The Mailboxes out front are emptied several times a day rather then others that are only picked up once a day during the week.

Before going any further, we drove across to Canadian Tire so we could check out some prices and do some walking for exercise. As we were about to leave we noticed another Street Rod/Car Meet setting up in their parking lot. Another group of different street machines. 

We have to set the Alarm tonight because we are expecting the Techs from Leisure Trailers in the morning to do more Warranty Work. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
