On August 9, 2022, when I was getting the bikes out to take them to the bike shop, I found the back tire on my bike was flat. I quickly pumped it up and rode it to the shop as quickly as possible, where it was again flat. Hmmm, what’s that about?

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. Looks like the perfect ride! That picture of the hawk with the mouse is a good shot! It’s good to be cautious on the railroad tracks, my sister had a pretty bad wipeout on her mountain bike. Luckily she was wearing her helmet. I’m also impressed with your harvest, well done!

    1. The hawks had been hunting so I was lucky to get that shot when we stopped. Railroad tracks and bikes do not mix well. Our fat tires were a bonus. The tomato harvest was good and early. Lots frozen in the freezer for sauces and my lasagne. Thanks for reading and commenting Lyssy. Allan


    1. Thanks Scott. I can not recommend E-bikes enough, especially for anyone who may have knee issues. The exercise factor may be diminished by the pedal assist, but being outdoors is still a good benefit. We also rent E-bikes when we travel. Have a great Sunday. We are off to ride 40-50 km shortly.
