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. You really “blue” me away with these photos Allan. It’s enough to lift one out of the “blues”. We had our own blustery conditions this week here in Edinburgh on the day we chose to scale Arthur’s Seat. It was pretty damn hairy up at the top. The resulting views were worth it, but nowhere near as blue. That’s Scotland.

    1. Thanks Leighton. After so many days of wind, I just get tired of it all. I can imagine how it would have been on Arthur’s Seat. We climbed it on a calmer day and depending on your route, it can be tricky, but the views are incredible. Thanks for reading. Allan

    1. When we first moved here and our kids were little, we would take them down to the lake with their small shovels and they would make their own paths through the snow…kind of like a fox and goose chase. Nice to see they clear it with a machine now. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan
