We’re here

We’ve been a month  here at our new address, it’s been quite the journey. It seemed easy in the beginning: Pack some stuff, take it to where ever we were going to store it and move out. Simple! …Well not quite! When we found out that the condo had been rented we had three weeks […]

Our new address

Good old Revenue Canada. If anyone can make life difficult it’s these guys!

As we are moving we have to make an address change. We rented a postal box as we can’t get mail delivered to the trailer. Rosalie contacted all the relevant people: banks, drivers licenses, insurance co. etc. Then we came to the CRA.



We are fast approaching the time when we will move to the trailer. Among the many chores, we have to face is the serious issue of getting hockey games. My team “The Leafs” are in the playoffs and we don’t have cable or enough WiFi at the campground. We do though, have signals coming through the air!!!



I’m now a lefty…for a while. Now the first week of my hand recovery is over it was time to go to the hand clinic. This was something I was both dreading and looking forward to. Dreading because I knew it would be uncomfortable but also wanting to be done with the bandaging.

I had to […]

The new, new TV

A year and a half ago our old TV, which we had had for ten years, was starting to give up the ghost so we needed a new one. We got one from Best Buy and did a deal for a floor model that included a two-year service warranty. As it turned out, it was a […]


My recovery began with “Mr. Wells, are you awake” It occurred to me that these people whom I had never seen before, knew my name but the last bunch, who had all the paperwork, didn’t. While I was waiting for surgery I thought about changing things up and saying my name was Colin. I didn’t […]

The other hand

Having had surgery on my left hand a few years ago it was decided that I now needed to get the other hand done. My finger had become ‘L’ shaped and kept getting in the way. Also, the Doctor needed another holiday in the south of France.  

I was waiting for an appointment and sure […]

Bits and Bob’s

We’ve been back from Mexico a month or more now and I haven’t written a blog. So here are some bits and bob’s to try to catch up.

We arrived back to fairly nice weather and didn’t feel the cold too much. Sorting out our things for either storage or the campground is bit of […]

Puerto Vallarta

On our way home, we had to fly from Puerto Vallarta so we spent a few days with Al and Cathy. Last time we were there we weren’t too impressed as it’s a big city and we prefer a smaller place. After this visit, we changed our minds as we enjoyed it a lot more this […]


Tomorrow we have to go home. (Sob!) We’ve had such a great time down here we don’t want to leave. 

It will be different next year when we come for six months. We’ll be residents, not tourists. The obvious thing to think is that we are having a good time now because we are on holiday, […]
