Retired and loving it. If I'd have known about retirement befor I started my 40 year career with the government of Manitoba I'd have retired first. :)

I got Abbey out for her walk yesterday. The farmer who owns her favorite hunting grounds has cut the long grass for hay. It sure makes it easier for her to spot those gophers. Last year when the field was cut she'd flush mice out from under the swathes. They give her quite a time as they run back under the cover when she come close and she sniffs and digs for them. I walk 2 1/2 miles but she must almost double that on her predatory hunts.
my white ID cane seems to attract people. Yesterday on a shopping trip with the Queen I passed a man on my blind side and he stepped back into me. He stepped back into me and I told him I was sorry thinking I had run into him. He said it was his fault we collided and said I didn't see you. I chuckled and said " I didn't see you either" when I noticed he was looking at my white and red stick. The other shoppers must feel bad when I run into their parked carts and apologise to them. I've learned to live with my vision problems and take minor collisions in stride. The Queen still laughs at me when I start looking for her and she's sitting in plain sight but on my left side. it's a good thing I don't have a drivers licence anymore.
