What better activity to undertake on your 45th wedding anniversary, than a bike ride out in the country on Range Road 233. It was a stellar fall day when we left, but increasing wind speeds meant we were freezing, heading home. Happiness is shivering together over a hot cup of coffee.

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. Actually, we started with my homemade Levain bagels. Always yummy. We also tried homemade Levain galettes. It was a yummy day too. Thanks for reading and for your good wishes Lyssy. Hope you had a great weekend. Allan


  1. Wow, a 45th anniversary certainly deserves joyful greetings because it’s not every day that you greet a couple who celebrates love this long and lasting! May the bonds that you two share strengthen in the years to come. I wish you many more years of love and happiness. You deserve it both. Happy 45th anniversary! Aiva 🙂 xx

    1. Thanks for your best wishes Aiva. That was a great day, despite the cold wind. 45 years is quite the achievement these days and we are left wondering how all those years passed in a blink of an eye. Thanks for reading. Allan
