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.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

It seems that Kathy and I are having alternate nights of who will spend more time awake rather then sleeping. Last night before turning off the lights I hooked up my CPAP Machine as I have over Thousands of nights and managed to miss an important apparatus. That makes it twice within the last month that I have forgotten my Mouth Guard (Chew Toy) which stops me from gnashing my teeth while I sleep. It takes a while as one lays staring at the Ceiling before you realize the problem and even after it is corrected, longer before sleep becomes your friend.

The unfortunate part of that also meant that it was the Alarm that woke us up at 8:00. Kathy just can’t comfortably wake up like that. Being shocked awake with an increasing Ear-Piercing-Sound makes you want to open the Window and send it to the neighbours. By the time we finished breakfast, Kathy put in my Eyedrops, gathered our lists and headed out the door it was nearly 9:00 by the time we cleared the front gate.

Our first stop was The Windsor Eye Institute for my One Week Follow-up. We had to stop for at least Half the Traffic Lights and a number of Sunday Drivers slowed the Morning Rush-Hour Traffic down. My appointment was for 9:25 and that was the time we walked in. After the Assistant checked my Right Eye for strength (20/40+2) we had another Ten-Minute Wait before the Doctor examined my eye for healing.

Our next stop was back to the Credit Union to find out why we can’t get our New Bank Cards to register on our Computers and to get rid of the Old Numbers. Our Customer Service Representative Ashley showed us exactly the same thing she has shown us before and it works on her Computer which is connected to the Main Server but she had to remove it because we have to do it on our own Computers for us to be able to do our On-Line Banking when we are away. Feeling as confident as we had the last few times she showed us we were soon on our way.

We stopped at Guardian Storage to collect our Mail. Kathy was happy to find her New Driver’s License had arrived showing she has no more Driving Restrictions (Wearing Glasses to drive).

It was barely after 10:30 when we got on the E.C. Rowe Expressway and headed to the West-end of Windsor exiting at Matchette Road. Our destination was the Windsor Regional Rehabilitation Center. Late last evening Vera had called to say that she had been transferred from Metropolitan Hospital to here. It was nearly 11:00 when we walked into her room. She had already had her morning Physio Therapy even with her Wrist and Leg in Casts. Doctors are now realizing that by keeping a person limber the less difficult it will be when they are able to go Home. For Vera that will be about Six Weeks away.

We stayed and chatted even when her lunch was served. She could only eat about half as a fact I’d have gained weight if I’d eaten that meal. It was past 1:00 when we said our good-byes but we’ll be back in the next few days.

Driving down Prince Road we were soon at the West-end Wendy’s where we had our lunch. Two Senior’s Soft Drinks, Two Chicken Wraps and Two Small Chocolate Frosties all for $7:19. Tasty, not over filling and reasonably priced.

It was nearly 2:00 when we arrived at the Zehrs Great Canadian Super Store on Walker Road. Kathy has added another thing that she looks for when buying food, Packaging. Living in a House or an Apartment the size of your Fridge and Freezer is much larger than in a RV. In order to make it all fit she watches that anything we buy can be removed from Boxes to be store in our Fridge/Freezer.

While getting some Cheese we ran into Val who along with Joe own the Wildwood Golf and RV Park. She was picking up a few things also. Kathy mentioned about our Cataract Surgeries and the difference it’s making in our vision. Joe had both his eyes done a couple of years ago and wished he had not waited so long to get it done.

Back Home after getting everything unpacked Kathy worked her magic at getting everything packed away. I started working on the Computers to get our New Debit Cards registered in just like Ashley instructed us to do. After Kathy was finished with the Food she came over to give me a hand. We’ll be seeing Ashley next week with our Computers. We have to get this straightened around before we head south in November.

Around 9:00 we had a lite shower but the Forecast is calling for Rain overnight all through the day tomorrow before our Humidex starts to climb. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

  1. I sure know what its like to get everything you need in an RV freezer n fridge. freezer bags are a life saver

  2. I've been putting off buying a packaging machine, but without much space in the freezer, it sure can make for more room. Frustrating not to be able to get your cards registered. Hopefully it will work soon!!

  3. Gosh darn those bank cards are so frustrating! Hopefully Ashley can get it done for you! Know what you mean about the freezer in an RV. Again nice of you to visit Vera, I'm sure your visits are so appreciated. 6 weeks of
