T’was Over in a Jiffy

All photos taken on October 14, 2022.

Wow, those 5 days and 6 nights simply flew by. Today was our last day, our last Terrace Bay sunset and our last chance to eat all the Jiffy Pop. Great family time in a great venue.

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. Thanks Leighton. Glad to hear you are enjoying a beautiful sunset dinner. We are just back from a brisk sub one hour 4 km walk at – 26C feels like -32 C. We kept up a good pace and managed to stay warm. Cheers. Allan

    1. Thanks Bernie. Lots of colour in the October skies. The Jiffy Pop is a rare indulgence. We used to make it for the kids when we were camping and it does travel well. When you go for a visit. The trick is where to find it these days and where to find it fresh. No Frills was the answer this time. Thanks for reading. Allan
