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.

Talking With Paul and Kharen Knit Picking.

 Our Location today is Windsor, Ontario.

Even though it wasn’t visible from upstairs the moment I stepped outside this morning it was like walking into a Fog but what it actually was a Fine Drizzle. The entire way to work I had to run the Wipers on medium intermittent speed.

As soon as I completed my Morning Walk Around there were Two Large Carriers that are used for holding small parts needing repair. For their size and capacity they are made extremely flimsy and besides damaged Clips many times they lose part of a Wing. While working on the first one I saw Paul checking what I was doing then when I was working on the second one I saw Kharen doing the same thing.

I was about to start cleaning some Nozzles when Paul stopped in. He somehow sprained his wrist and needed me to lift some bags for him. As we passed through the Office he just said “We’ll be back” to the Secretary. Before I knew it we were off to the nearby Home Hardware to buy Bird Seed.
have mentioned lately that Paul’s attitude has changed a lot since Kharen first went on his vacation. I have talk to Paul as an equal and when asked give my honest opinion on things that he is concerned about. Today we had a little heart-to-heart about his concerns and he appreciated my opinion. I’m no Dr. Phil but a good listener with personal experience that can help solve some problems.

After I put the Bird Seed in the back Office I headed back to Compound. At a glance I could see Kharen staring at me from the Paint-Line. When I do salvaging work I continue to check with the Line Workers making certain there are no Carriers in need of repair. As I was doing that Kharen waved me over. He wanted me to check if there were any Carriers in need of repair. When he was told that was what I was doing before he called me he looked around and saw a Water Puddle on the floor and wanted me to find out what caused it. Talk about being Lame.

Kathy's lunch matched mine.

Due to the changing season I ate my lunch inside the Plant but stepped outside to call Kathy. I had to stand in a corner to stay dry from the falling Drizzle.

When it came time to leave at the end of my shift I could feel the added weight from the extra Tools added to my Toolbox.

Since Kathy changed the Bed Linens to our Winter Sheets we’ve been sleeping more comfortably but they filled the Hamper. There was only one thing to do and that was to do the Laundry. We tossed a Store Bought Thin Crust Medium Chicken Pizza in the oven while I sorted everything. It tasted wonderful but still being active didn’t know if that would hold us over until morning.

After getting everything in the Washers I finally had the chance to turn on my Computer and start checking my messages before having to return to the Laundry Room to switch things over to the Dryers. Of course it didn’t help that the Coin Slide on the best Dryer was jammed.

Returning to the Apartment we had some Chicken Noodle Soup while watching the 6 o’clock Local News. I wasn’t around to watch all of the News so have no idea what the Coronavirus Case Numbers for the Windsor/Essex Region were today.

The Weather Network showed our high temperature today felt like 50 F (10 C).

Back in the Laundry Room the clothes in the one Dryer were still wet so after emptying another switched the clothes over. I finally had everything folded and back in the Apartment by 8:30 before finally getting my shower. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

It’s about time.


I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman where the Self Help section was. She said if she told me it would defeat the purpose.
