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.

Getting It Together, Just Deal With It and Comfortable Temperature.

 Our Location today is at Windsor, Ontario.

I’m certain that most who read this Blog must be getting tired of the repetition of the daily duties it takes to keep such a simple operation going at work. Lots of the challenges would disappear if the problem once it’s realized would be dealt with allowing for you to focus on other matters.

Before the Paint-Line started this morning I was wiping up the Splattered Grease off the Framework before adding more to the Motor. When I past by Paul the Owner I explained that it was getting worse but I would repeatedly service it throughout the shift. He said it was hard to believe that a Motor that had been working perfectly since 1992 would suddenly be failing.

My Morning Walk Around only had One New Issue that I was able to fix with a Screwdriver. Somehow the Face Plate of a Fuse Box was standing next to the panel it belonged to. On the return to the Compound I picked up a few Carriers that needed some TLC.

With the arrival of the Cast Steel Pipe Fittings I finally completed the welding on the Manifolds by 10:30. While it cooled I checked the Drive-Motor and was disappointed that I had to repeat what I had done less then Four Hours before. If anyone wants to lubricate their car I have a rag full of Grease that you can use.

Once the End-Plates were secured the Manifolds were moved to the Rack outside the Compound so other things could be done. There was a concern about the Piping I asked Paul about and his answer was “Deal With It”. That means he better not say a word if it doesn’t look the way he planned.

Shortly after 2:30 as I was returning from servicing the Drive-Motor again Paul asked me to change the Small Wheels on a couple of Carrier Racks. The problem was we didn’t have any Wheels to do that with and the Two Racks had over Fifty Carriers on each. When the Wheels were delivered at 3:00 there were only Two Wheels out of Eight. Maybe tomorrow.

I cut the Brackets for mounting the Manifolds before the end of the shift. Even though The Weather Network showed we had a Humidex of only 88 F (31 C) today it felt comfortable for me. They also showed more comfortable temperatures heading our way.

When I walked in the Apartment Kathy had just gotten off the phone with our dear friend Vera. She wanted Kathy to go over for a visit and was surprised that I have the Car while the Truck needs repair.

For supper we had something we haven’t had in a long time Perogies along with Fresh Sliced Local Peaches for dessert.

Our 6 o’clock Local News today reported 62 New Coronavirus Cases bring the Active Cases to 527 in the Windsor/Essex Region.

I’m wondering what tomorrow will be like.

It’s about time.


My dog used to chase people on a bike a lot.

It got so bad I had to take his bike away.


  1. Any idea as to what is going on with Kharen?

  2. Quite to the contrary Rick, I'm hooked on the evolving drama at your workplace. It's the first thing I read in the morning!

  3. Why doesn't Kathy drive you in to work so she can use it for errands?

  4. A motor that has been in place since 1992? Really? Hard to understand what the owner is thinking......

  5. So some of us are fascinated by your work situation....I sure am. While I am sure you would rather be rolling on the road to one of your favorite places, you've certainly got some drama going on. So...not just another set of pictures being parked and hiking in some wild place (which without interesting narrative, is not very interesting) but rather a saga! Very glad you can find the energy to do this after working hard!!
