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.

Kathy Sick and Finished Units.

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

The problem with working small shops is that they sometimes make promises to the Customers that they shouldn’t make. As mentioned Thursday the Two Truck Body Projects were promised for yesterday and there was no way to get it done. So there was something said that bought us a few extra days to get them done but that also meant working Overtime just when we really could not afford for me to do it.

After not having slept too well on Thursday Night I took an Extra Strength Tylenol Night-Time Tablet to make certain I would relax. When my head hit that pillow last night the next thing I remembered was looking at the Clock on the Dresser that showed my Alarm would be going off in Ten Minutes. I simply got up early feeling totally relaxed taking my time and somehow was on the road only Five Minutes ahead of the norm.

Having very little Weekend Traffic to put up with at that time of morning I was the first at Work with the entire parking lot to myself. Most of the orders had already been shipped out yesterday so the even Shipping and Receiving Clerk actually took the day off. It wasn’t until another Welder showed up Twenty Minutes before start time that I got inside.

I just picked up where I left off yesterday welding and assembling what needed to be done. When I went to use the Drill Press in the Machine Shop I only counted Three Other Employees and our Supervisor in the building. Then the Owner who had been at the other Plant showed up at 9:00 bringing more of the parts that I needed. He told me the Pickups had arrived and we needed to have them delivered by Monday afternoon.

When I spoke to Kathy at noon she had been Sick all morning and had finally been able to keep her lunch down. She had also booked a few more appointments for next week.

By noon everyone but the Owner and I had left for the day. We worked together until 3:00 with Both Units totally assembled even making a few Improvements along the way.

It felt good to be Home. Kathy was feeling somewhat better but didn’t feel like cooking so we went to the 19th Hole Restaurant for supper. We both enjoyed their Half Order Perch dinners. It seemed to settle Kathy’s stomach making her feel much better.

Tomorrow between errands, appointments and chores my day off should be very relaxing. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

The World's Great Proverbs

Every cloud has a silver lining.


  1. I hope Kathy is feeling better soon. Rest up .......

  2. Nice it looks like Kathy's illness was short lived. Enjoy your day!

  3. There must be something going around as I have read several blogs where either the writer or their spouse is ill.

    Glad Kathy is feeling better. You rest up too Rick you have been working a lot and dealing with a lot of pressure at your job.
