Journey’s souvenirs

nothing but ash and bug guts.

That’s the dirty truth!

The ash I found on the car in Kamloops this morning has morphed after driving through a small shower.
There were a few bugs on this 2,900 km road trip.
Cleaning off the patio table, which was under cover for the week we were way. And this is in the air we breathe.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Yup. We are breathing this stuff. Remember when as kids we would try to catch snowflakes on our tongues? They are likely toxic now. Thanks for reading Bernie. Hope all is well. Allan


    1. We wax frequently, but the bugs over here are real sticky especially when you hit them at 120 k/h. If I put baby oil on the hood, we could watch them skating before our very eyes. I think I’ll stick with Bug and Tar remover. I have a new batch on the car now anyway. Cheers. Allan

  1. We have been fortunate to not have the ash in a while. We have gotten that at times when the wind blows just right, though. We also get the dust from west Texas. It turns everything this lovely shade of brownish yellow. And yes, the sinuses get abused for sure. Breathe shallow?
