Battle Stations

All photos taken during our 4.6 km (3 mile) walk to Four Seasons Park and back.

The forecast had been calling for rain and a rain/snow mix, starting at 4:00 PM yesterday, but not much of that appeared. However, the promised NW winds gusting to 50 k/h (31 m/h) did appear and had been howling since 1/4 past why can’t I get to sleep last night.

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 did not understand that many of the geese can not fly at some point after they return due to the annual molt. If I could not fly and somebody tried to move into my house, I’d be a bit ticked too. Thanks for reading. Allan

      1. I didn’t know that either. I do know some birds are molting this time of year, but never sure which ones. Btw, I am still catching up on your posts. Been really busy with helping my Dad move here, but I will be reading your posts from time to time

      2. No worries. Glad you are spending time with your Dad. Family time is special. We just spent 3 1/2 hours with our son helping him plant some trees. Family time, involving hard labour is still a good time. Cheers.

      3. My Dad isn’t here yet. He had to delay his departure until the end of June, but there’s a lot to do before he gets here. I do agree family time with labour is still good. Sometimes, it’s quite the bonding time
