First an apology for not writing last night. After posting our Blog on Wednesday the only way I could find any relief from the Back Pain I was experiencing was to take not One but Two Extra Strength Tylenol. I do not recall straining myself but believe that it is my body’s way of making me pay for coming out of Retirement.

It was a busy day at Work on Thursday and really felt good to be back Home. More Tylenol were consumed in order to help me move. After my shower Kathy served us a Single Portion Lasagna that we shared along with our Caesars Salad and Clementine Oranges with a Nanaimo Bar for dessert. Kathy occasionally tries some Prepackaged Meals so if we are in a hurry we can can use them. If we don’t like them they will never come back into our lives. She has figured out that she can’t make Lasagna from scratch for what they charge. Also by sharing a Single Portion instead of a large pan we won’t put on too much weight and there are no leftovers.
It was Thursday and we headed out to Amherstburg to visit our son Kevin and daughter-in-law Melissa for our weekly visit. Sometimes things come up so we visit when we can. It was a very pleasant visit as it always is filled with frank discussion and many times laughter.
We had to leave early because we needed to do some shopping. We first went to Shoppers Drug Mart to restock some over the counter items One of which happened to be the Extra Strength Tylenol. Then we went next door to the No Frills to get a few groceries and some supplies for our contribution to our Merry Thanksmas Celebration this weekend. Surprisingly they didn’t have One of the necessary ingredients so we also had to go to Sobeys who had them but at a higher price. By the time we got Home and unloaded the Car my Back Pain was too much for me to concentrate.
That's the Moon in the upper right corner not a light.
Even with a lot of Fine Tuning I had a very productive day today at Work. I managed to get all the Mechanisms welded together and ready for the paint shop. The fact that it was raining outside really made it feel cool even inside.
Told you it was the Moon.
Getting Home shortly after 4:00 I was told we had an appointment to check out something that Kathy had found on Facebook Marketplace. A warm shower seemed to do the trick. Our neighbour Tim stopped by for a moment to change a visit time to next weekend instead of this Holiday Weekend we were now into.
We were soon on our way headed towards Oldcastle. Again Kathy managed to find a great bargain that would have cost about Six Times as much if we had gone to the stores. It’s a good thing our Back Seat folds down giving us plenty of space.
Kathy's Belgium Waffle with Strawberries.
It was past 5:30 so we stopped at the Hi-Ho/Michigan Diner to have supper. With it being Friday we had our Fish and Onion Rings instead of Fries. Even with the smaller portion from the Seniors Menu we were both feeling stuffed.
We needed some Garbage Bags so we found them at Canadian Tire.

We stopped at our daughter Karen’s in Tecumseh to drop something off for her and to confirm the family celebration for tomorrow.
With future plans for Home Improvements we stopped at Home Depot to get some ideas. That’s where I get most of my materials.
By the time we got Home my Recliner and an Extra Strength Tylenol were calling my name. Good thing I have an appointment with our Family Doctor on Tuesday.
Follower Don from Oklahoma E-mailed me writing that lately he has been Blocked from reading our Blog and was wondering if anyone else is having the same problem. I recalled that years ago our Antivirus stopping me from getting on our own blog Eight Years ago but not since.
The Mystery continues and has everyone’s attention. There are some that think they have the answer but not quite. We’ll let you know soon. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  2. Love the halloween decorations! Hope your back is feeling better soon!!!

  3. I was wondering why no blog yesterday. Hope your back is much better soon,

  4. Tom and I hope your back is feeling better by the time you read this.
    Enjoy your Merry Thanksmas!

  5. I just bet you can't wait til time to head south and no more welding/work. I can imagine the pain as those muscles are getting a workout.

  6. I hope your back gets to feeling better. Having a bad one myself I can empathize with your pain.
