I slept very well last night. My eyes are feeling very good, they
are healing good and I do not hurt. Just some moments where it is
uncomfortable. Nothing bad. I still stayed at home for the
Tuesday May 15, 2018
It rained all night, more then one and half inches of water fell last
night. We needed our rubber boots to get out of the MH.
At 11 o'clock, we are in Belleville with our financial adviser (Ted) to
do some updates.
Everything is good on the financial side of the house.
But! Something kind of funny happen. Last year we asked Ted if we
should take our Canada Pension early. He said NO! It will
have kind of bad influence on your financial situation. I still
had my doubts. I think we did plant a small seed in his brain,
because this year when we asked him again, he said YES, go for
it. Since we have been with Ted, we have been asking questions he
never had asked before. The majority of his clientele are
very well off. We are not, so we do look to get as much money as
we can get, anywhere we can get it. This is just our opinion.
We have lunch at Buffet Garden in Belleville.
This time it was just average, barely warm.
Nest stop was at the bank. This time it is to open an account in
US dollars with a credit card US.
With the bank business done, we headed back home, but first we stopped
at the Service Canada Center in Belleville.
What a nice place. People are nice too! They seem to be
happy to work here!
So, we asked a lot of questions about early collecting our Canada
Pension early. The lady answered all our questions and even
informed about the fact that Michele should fill in the form called
"Child Rearing Provision" in the calculation of her benefits. I
am not even going to try to explain this process, ask the professionals.
A big thank you to the people working at the Service Canada office in
The sun finally came out later in the afternoon.

Sunny morning today! I am out for a walk in the campground this
morning. It is even hot outside!
After my walk, I work on the next blog update. Michele looks
outside and notice the fog rolling in. The sun did come back
Michele and I went for a walk in the afternoon. We also wanted to
check out the couch in the trailer at the front entrance.
WOW! Jan is moving the trailer when we arrived!
My eyes are still doing good. I am happy with the results.

I have an appointment for my eyes this morning, but this time it is to
get a form telling the licenses office I no longer need glasses for
driving. This is not good. I have to redo the special eye
exam 3 times. My eyes are getting tired. I realize the lady
giving me the exam is just learning... Joseph comes in later and
the exam went well after that.
After lunch, we went to Belleville for Michele so she could pick up her
new hearing aids at Helix.
Michele really likes her new hearing aids.
Once we are back home, I have a cold beer outside while reading all the
literature on Michele's new hearing aids.
This is Thursday evening, that means it is the first "Thursday Pub
We had a busy day.
Friday May 18, 2018
Another busy day ahead of us.
Back at Eye N Optics for my one week eye.
My eyes are healing very well and all is good.
I now have the form to bring to the license office to update my driver
We wait in line for 10 minutes and it is our turn. We are told we
need to go to the Belleville office because here, they can't do the
removal of glasses on driver licenses. I guess it will be done on
Tuesday morning now.
We are back home before lunch. After lunch, I leave with the MH
and Michele with the car. I am on my way to Krown Rust control in
Trenton. But first, a stop for gasoline for the MH.
My next stop is at Gerow for propane. We are running of propane
fumes right now.
I finally made it at Krown just before my appointment at 1:30h.
The rust control treatment is done outside.
Michele takes that time to do some more shopping.
Today is Friday of the long weekend here in Canada. The traffic
on the roads to Prince Edward County is crazy right now.
Our RV Park is filling up quickly.

The weather forecast for today? Rain until this afternoon and
they are right!
Michele watching tennis in bed. The thing to do on a rainy day.
This evening is also the night they are having the annual welcome Wine
& Cheese at the club house. It is for the seasonal campers
only, but the owners invited us. Before the wine and cheese
starts, we have to listen to the entertainment comity telling us what
will be happening this summer at the park.
Once again, it was a success. There was a dance after the wine
& cheese, but we did not attend the dance.
We were with Claude and Johanne at our table and they had friends with
them, Daniel and XXX. Daniel and XXX invited us for a last drink
at their trailer after the Win & Cheese. We had a good time.

The sun comes out in the afternoon, but the air is still cool.
We spend the day at home.
