What’s Growing On?

Photos taken on July 29/30, 2022, except the last one, which dates from working days (May 4, 2011. This photo does not really belong, but I promised Luisa I would find a way to share my “tech support”, “hit any key photo”.

Please do yourself a favour and check out Luisa’s blog Words and Music and Stories here.

This post is in a way related to my “Climate Change is Real” post. It does not make a statement as to cause, just asks the question….”What’s Growing On?”

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. Love that last photo!! Like you would ever.😏 your yard is first-rate and the photos are stunning. Our garden is very behind. Peas are usually done by July 28 and they are just filling in. Carrot plants are about 3 – 4″ tall so nothing much under that but I’ve harvested broccoli! It’s all weird. I have noticed a few aspen and poplar with yellow leaves.

    1. My partner was very worried that I would do it, but, the photo was more for humour and use at my retirement do, which my boss did not attend. Sorry to hear about your garden. Seems we got rain and sun at the right time and in the right amounts. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan


    1. We have birds going through our yard all day every day. My birdbath has become very popular. We love our birds, well except for the crows. Have a good time in Michigan Lyssy. Allan
