4 & 20

All photos taken on October 22, 2022.

This post titled itself, as our day went on. No, not a reference to cannabis. There were blackbirds and there was pie (pye). It was a more low key day, after all the biking and walking we had been doing the past few days. We hiked to Tartine to pick up a Sour Cherry Pie (mmmmmmm, pie), then walked to Peaked Pies later for some Aussie pies (mmmmmmm, pie) for supper.

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 hate crows. They move into the neighbourhood in early April and don’t leave until late September. Their incessant cawing is enough to drive us mad. The savoury and sweet pies were a real treat and one of our go-tos when we are in Vancouver. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan


    1. Before legalization, that was always the name of their protest groups. Now it is often the name of the pot shop. Agree on both birds and pies. Aussie and Kiwi savoury pies are the best and sour cherry is our favourite for sweet. Thanks for reading Bernie. Hope your Thursday is going well. Allan
