We walked in early morning before the heat of the day arrived. Water was calm and the birds were happy.

Life is just ducky, down on the pond

avian training goes on and on.

Chicks once small, have now all grown bigger,

will soon fly off, that’s life, go figure.

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. I love it! Ducky used to be an English expression too. I never heard it when I was there, but I have heard it from Brits who moved away from the UK when that expression was common

    1. Hmmm. I guess that means I am old. 😀 My Dad used it many times, when I am sure he would have liked to say something much stronger. His Mom was born in England and I heard my Mom use it sometimes in a more gentle way. Have a great Monday Marion. Allan

    1. Thanks Linda. Hope your Thanksgiving was great, as well. Our Thanksgiving was spent doing laundry, tidy up and yard work after our 23 days away. Still, a lot to be thankful for, not the least of which was arriving home safe. Thanks for reading and have a great week. Allan
