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.

More Coronavirus Supplies and An Evening Watching The Tube.

Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

We didn’t bother setting our Clocks ahead before going to bed last night. With all the reminders On-Line and the Television there was no way that we’d forget. We were both awake minutes before 8:00 EST so we weren’t that far off the mark. Opening the Blinds it looked like a mirror image of yesterday. Even after we sat down to eat we knew that we weren’t in a hurry to do anything. It only took Five Minutes before all the clocks were set to DST.
When we went shopping on Friday for things in preparation of the Coronavirus we had made a List of things we might need from what a Doctor had suggested. Today while I was busy reading and commenting on other Blogs we follow Kathy was reading about Coronavirus related happenings. Many retail outlets were reporting runs on simple things such as Bottled Water, Kleenex Tissue and Toilet Paper. We never thought that things like that would cause a problem for us so we kept working at the Computers but that soon changed. When Kathy went to get something from our storage room she found we only had another Four Rolls of Toilet Paper ourselves which meant if there were shortages already happening we didn’t want to be caught dirty handed.
As we worked together making lunch we also were making another List. The reason being that if there were any cases of the Virus diagnosed locally we could safely hunker down without worry. Lunch was Chicken Noodle Soup with a Yogurt Cup, a Clementine Orange and Plum that we shared along with Tea Biscuits for dessert.
We sat back at the Computers while enjoying our Tea and making certain we had everything on our List. It was nearly 1:30 DST when we arrived at Zehr’s grocery store and were surprised that for a Sunday it really wasn’t that busy. We saw a lot of shelves had been emptied but there was still plenty of Toilet Paper to be had. Making certain that we won’t be caught short we bought Two Packages to keep us going.
Even though it was a beautiful Spring like day with mostly sunny skies the 32 MPH Wind Gusts were making it feel much cooler then it was.

Back at the Apartment it was nearly 5:00 by the time we had everything put away. Not feeling very hungry we watched the 6 o’clock Local News before Kathy made us Macaroni and Cheese for supper. We watched a variety of different programs through the course of the evening before calling it a night.

Now to reprogram our bodies internal clocks. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Q: Where are whales weighed?

A: At a whale weigh station.


  1. I think people make a run for toilet paper, kleenex, and paper towels because if you go on YouTube that is what most preppers are advising. They make great bartering items among many other things.

    Keep in mind many of those videos were made during Y2K and when President Obama took office after inheriting the worst economy since the Great Depression from President George W. Bush, whom up until this current administration took over I considered him to be the WORST president we ever WRONG I was!

    Glad you are getting stocked up, we all need to as this is no hoax like others would like for us to believe.

  2. I read that something like 12,000 people died from the flu last year and it may be up to 30,000. Over 210,000 were hospitalized with the flu according to the CDC. I'm not sure why everyone is panicking over 22 deaths from the coronavirus flu. Maybe it's a media thing. Yes you should be taking precautions and washing your hands, but everyone should have been doing that anyway. For Kathy, with a lower immune system, she should be careful of ANY flu, not just the latest variety. Glad you are prepared!!

  3. Ugh! I hate high winds as much as the cold. I guess I should be glad I'm heading to the boonies with this virus running around. Should be safe in the desert. You two take care.

  4. Ken's grocery has to 12 pack for $3.00 good deal

  5. Glad you got some TP LOL and no black eyes means your in Canada -- so far anyway... It is important for people not to panic, just prepare as best you can.

  6. As Nancy above said.... there is seldom a mention of the amount of people who die from the flu each year. This year we know to 2. A 83 old year old man who we were we were friends of in NJ and a 1 year old great-niece.
