For Rose / Happy Mother’s Day
Things are finally starting to pop in Rose’s Garden.
Just have to wait …
… and enjoy what we have.
Starting a New Life / Van Morrison
That come before the swallow dares, and take
the winds of March with beauty.
~ William Shakespeare
The steeds are out of the barn.
The Bow River / Calgary. Used to be that I would shortcut across here in the Winter. And I could judge if it was Spring or not when the ice disappeared.
The water on one side of Prince’s Island. In Grade 3, my brothers and I played hockey here. It was a slough back then – where people threw junk and garbage. It made for an interesting hockey game though, stickhandling around tires and stuff sticking up through the ice.
Need a workout?
Listen to the Music / Playing for Change
A time of renewal.
Besides the world being turned upside down,
My personal life is changing as well.
I’d been wondering for a while if my time at Home Depot was winding down.
Was it over?
I didn’t know for sure.
What was the right thing to do? Right now?
It’s been 8 years and I can surely stay longer.
But THEN, my wife Rose came to me and said
“I want you to retire.”
That was a pretty direct answer to my question
I had never presented to her.
Other things happened:
My computer blew up.
I re-installed Win 10 and all my other stuff.
Then my monitor failed.
I went out and bought a new one.
I had been dreaming for a quite a while that I’d like to have a KIA Soul.
I just like that vehicle.
It suits me.
But I never really thought I would ever have one.
Then Rose noticed a great deal on a second-hand Soul.
We went and looked
It was immaculate.
Fully loaded – sun roof and everything.
We bought it.
Rose and I aren’t rich. Money wise.
But I’m 72 now.
And I don’t plan and taking anything with me.
I just want to enjoy the last part of this lifetime.
See you there.
