MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

Willy Wonky

After doing our usual “thing” on Saturday we headed into St. Catharines for Zach’s 9th birthday party. We had a great time and I had a chance to get caught up on what everyone was doing or up to. The “beef on the barby” was delicious as always – Daryl has it down to a science now!! He’s the “quiet cook” and really knows his way around the BBQ.

As we were headed home Nat and I could watch the bolts of lightning strike the skies over Ridgeway and Fort Erie. We knew something was coming when we began to drive into some pretty dark and eerie clouds. We were safe until we got into the house and then it started. Slowly at first and then the downpour came. Naturally the satellite went off right in the middle of a good show on TV. We get so upset as there’s not much on these days that Nat and I are interested in, so when we get a good one and the satellite goes out – well, you can only imagine our frustration.

Nat was a little “wonky” before going to bed last night, so today we’re staying put and keeping his stomach on an even keel. We’re foregoing Lucas’s two baseball games today, much to our disappointment, but better safe than sorry for Nat. If you’re feeling wonky a baseball park’s washrooms aren’t the best place to be – need I say more?? So we’ll sit back, relax, do the crosswords and wonder what to do for supper!!! We’re so exciting now, it’s getting scary!!!!

Born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada, with 5 sisters and a brother. Now retired, my husband and I travel, play golf and am slowly renovating our new (old) home. After my kidney transplant in 1999, we've learned to enjoy life to the fullest. Nat and I have driven across Canada, taken an Alaskan cruise and drove home via the Northern United States. We've also been to Mexico, the Caribbean, the East Coast of Canada and Cape Breton. We've done the "Snowbird" thing, having lived in Destin, Florida for a couple of months of the year. In 2007 we changed our travel plans in order to move into and renovate our new "old" home, but hope to someday get back on the road again. We also love returning to Scotland (Nat's origin of birth) to visit his family and tour the Highlands and surrounding Isles.
