All photos taken on May 3, 1982.

We once again awoke to commuter announcements from the nearby transportation center. We completed our packing, put our cases outside the door and went down to Trader’s Lounge for breakfast.

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. We loved Cathay Pacific the most. Singapore Airlines and Thai were also pretty good. Yes, it must be tough to compete these days with such high costs, the pandemic and staffing issues. Airline travel may never look the same again. Thanks for reading John. Allan


    1. We thought it was impressive then, but now those towers are dwarfed and outnumbered by all that has been built since. It is solid note taking and a poor memory that forgot to look at my records until after I had all the posts framed out. Thanks for reading. Allan
