Packing up was a bit of a chore this morning. Its not like we could turn the lights on, as the power outage still continued and the cloudy skies did not help.

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. Lord that bug was humongous. The pine cone shot is a work of art, hang it in a gallery. As for the notepad, I often spot curious, discarded objects when I’m out in nature and find myself wondering: “how the heck..” There is a story there, for sure. You didn’t do too badly despite the unforeseen change of lunch spot.

    1. I would have liked to see it out on dry land….but, then maybe not. I think the note pad was left by a kid who was not totally into Junior Forest Rangers. His Mom made him join. We did enjoy the views more than the road leading to them. Thanks for reading Leighton. Allan
