More Changes, Kathy Gets Around With No Problem and Wonderful Visit.

Our Location today is at Wildwood Golf and RV Park, McGregor, Ontario.

As mentioned yesterday there was a slight Hick Up with One of the Modifications done to the Prototype. This morning after starting the day by finishing off the Jig I was handed the replacement part to fix the Prototype Problem fresh out of the Paint Booth. It was a step back to the beginning that ignored the Customer’s Request for strength and lubrication. Figuring there would be more changes to make soon they had me install it with the intention of being replaced later. My adage is to “Do it right the first time”.

As soon as the Jig was finished they assigned me the task of cleaning Fixtures that had just been painted. As someone told me at lunch this place has everyone doing everything when the occasion arises. The cleaning meant making certain there was no Paint on any surface area that would contain machined pieces. Once I was finished the Shipper could send them out.

Gerry the Supervisor was calling the Architect every Hour today still trying to get the dimensions so I can complete the other Aluminium job.

Kathy had a much more interesting day then I did. She was also quite surprised how confident she was driving to where she needed without getting upset. Learning to use Street Names rather then Landmarks was working much better. Since I had coached her on Sunday she said that even the Road Construction didn’t bother her.

She started at the Dyna Care blood lab in Windsor. She only had to wait Forty-Five Minutes which is far better then the near Three Hours we were there for before. Since she needed to get Blood drawn for Two different Doctors the Lab would take less Blood then if she had gone twice.

Next she went to Motor City Community Credit Union to pick up coins for our Laundry Money.

Then she went to Hearing Life in Tecumseh. The last couple of days Kathy had been experiencing sound similar to an Echo in her right ear so we thought that there was a problem with her Hearing Aide. After they tested it and she was still hearing the same thing without the device they recommended she go to our Family Doctor for Treatment.

She took the E. C. Rowe Expressway across to the west end of Windsor and soon arrived at our Family Doctor’s Office. Since Kathy didn’t have an appointment she had to wait nearly an Hour and a Half before seeing the Doctor. It turned out that she has a bad Ear Infection that if left untreated would get worse. A prescription for Antibiotics and Ear Drops was issues.

It was nearly 1:15 when Kathy finally got to Wendy’s to have lunch. She ordered a Grilled Chicken Wrap off the Value Menu, a small Chocolate Frosty and a Senior’s Soft Drink. Her lunch cost all of $3.60.

She stopped at the Great Canadian Superstore where she picked up some Fruits, Vegetables and few other things before bring it all Home.

She only put the Refrigerated stuff away before driving all the way to Pharma Care in Amherstburg to get her Prescriptions filled. The sooner she starts the Antibiotics the sooner her ear will improve.
I was surprised when I arrived Home to find some groceries still on the counter but no Kathy. I barely had the chance to take my Work Shoes off and empty my lunch bag when she arrived.
For supper while I grilled some Chicken Kabobs Kathy was busy microwaving some Corn-on-the-Cob. It all tasted wonderful.

We headed out the door shortly after 5:30 heading back to Amherstburg for our visit with our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa. We try to visit every week but sometimes things happen that we can’t like last week. That meant we had a lot more information to exchange in a shorter period of time. Because of my early wake up time I was feeling worn out and we left shortly before 8:00.
At Home that warm shower helped to wake me a bit. I am very proud that Kathy had no issues driving around today. 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

You can see your ears without a mirror.


  1. Glad to hear Kathy is slowly but surely growing more confident with each passing day.

    I rather feel bad for all you have to put up with at work. Seems your boss, supervisor and architect need to get their act together. Best of luck.

  2. Way to go Kathy!! It's nice having the confidence to get things taken care of in your absence.

  3. Good job Kathy. Sorry about the ear infection. I hope you had a book with to you read to pass the time in the waiting room.

  4. I'm just catching up on my reading. Sounds like your job is a bit challenging but as long as you are happy, that makes it worth while. Sorry about Kathy's ear infection. She is doing awesome getting around, it is hard when someone takes you everywhere to get there on your own.
