It's about time.

The Computer Did It, Getting A Boost and Straightening Things Up.

 Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

Normally when we have a problem sleeping it’s our problems that are the cause but how often can you say your Computer did it. We all know how Computers have to do Updates well last night was Kathy’s turn and it was taking forever. On most Laptops F9 will turn the Screen off so if you want to sleep in the other room the light won’t keep you awake.

The problem is lots of Updates will Restart the Computer a number of times until it is finished and each time it does the Screen turns back on. Kathy saw it first since she sleeps closest to the Bedroom Door. Knowing she couldn’t shut the computer she partially closed the door and went back to a disturbed sleep.

Kathy had probably just fallen back to sleep when I rolled over noticing the bright light from the Computer so I hit F9 again then repositioned the Computer before going back to bed. I immediately fell back to sleep but seemed to be struggling to breath. Finally I woke staring at the ceiling gasping for air when I suddenly realized what was happening. When I returned to bed I was so tired that I had forgotten to reconnect the Hose to my CPAP Mask.

It was a Cloudy and Cool morning when we got up but the Sun was about to make its appearance. We managed to have the Balcony Door open while we spent time checking Messages on the Computers.

We had Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Olives for garnishing then we finished the Leftover Pecan Cake for dessert.

We were heading out the door by 12:30 but I knew it would be a while before we went anywhere. It’s been a few weeks since I last started the Truck again and even with the small Solar Battery Charger plugged in it wasn’t enough to keep Two Batteries charged. Using the Car for a boost it took nearly Ten Minutes before the Truck fired up.

Flowerbed in need of TLC.

We went back to our daughter Karen’s house in Tecumseh. She created another Flowerbed in her back yard but wanted to extend it and straighten the edging. Using a String-Line it didn’t take long to get things straight and level. I have a some experience at working with Pavers and Edgers. Karen is working from home and her hours can be flexible so she was out there giving me a hand getting the new Weed Cloth stretched before we called it a day.

The edge is nice and Straight.

Kathy had a chance to do some reading and picture taking while Sanford shared his time loving her up and supervising the reshaping of the Flowerbed.

We visited a little longer before Karen headed back to work on her Computer.

We went to Wendy’s Drive-Thru where we both ordered Chicken Wraps, Small Chocolate Frosties and Senior’s Soft Drinks. All that for less then Ten Dollars.

Back at the Apartment we learned that our grandson Cameron’s Fourteen Year Old pet Rabbit Roger had died overnight peacefully in his sleep.

We then watched the 6 o’clock Local News. The Windsor Essex County Health Unit is now allowing for anyone 40 Years of age and older to receive the AstraZenica Vaccine. Windsor will also be receiving Double the number of Pfizer Vaccines the First Two Weeks in May

The Windsor/Essex Region also recorded another Coronavirus Death as well as 47 New Cases bringing the Total Active Cases to 452.

Today’s weather was wonderful but that should all change overnight.

We watched some FBI stories tonight but they just seemed dull compared to the ones we normally watch.

Be Safe and Enjoy!

What starts with an E, ends with E and has only one letter in it?



  1. How nice of you to help Karen! Looks like a beautiful yard and planter area!

  2. Glad your country's vaccine problem is being resolved and hopefully, that will bring down your Covid numbers.

    See you know how to do a lot of things just like a handyman. The project is looking good.
