On a Wild Goose Chase

All photos taken on April 20, 2022.

It is funny the things you see after a late spring snow storm. We waited until the walks were mostly clear before walking down to the lake.

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 always thought it was funny to see them go walking about. What I did not know that many times, this is because they are molting and temporarily unable fly. Kinda like having a flat tire on your car. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan


  1. Geese are fun birds to watch. You have a crow alarm. We have a Mockingbird alarm. Our alarm goes of at 3am and goes until about 6pm. I cannot lie. I HAVE contemplated finding a way to shut off that alarm :-/
    Nah… I like birds… even the really (effing) annoying ones. Yes, there ARE other names I have for it…

    1. I agree. Ooooh, I feel for you. If only there was a way to get the mockingbird to move on that did not involve violence or anything illegal. I guess my 17 crow alarms are not so bad after all.

      Keep well, my friend. Allan

      1. Oh, they’re bad, too. The mockingbird – I’m pretty sure – nested nearby this year. That is why it’s there all day, every day.
        You keep well, too.

  2. In places of chilly weather brings snow and ice. It also presents the opportunity to take pictures you may not ever be able to take if you lived elsewhere like footprints in the snow. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Agreed. Winter does allow for more variety both in weather and scenery. The geese were not amused as they wandered around wondering what had happened. Thanks for reading Aiva. Allan
