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 heeded Shen's warning and removed the girls picture from the blog. It's strange that I never thought of the dark side of the web when I usually won't even post a clesr photo of myself and tell everyone not to put anything on the web that you don't want to share with the world.
Thanks Shen for waking me up.
I stayed home with Abbey yesterday fearing both me and Abbey would be blown to Oz. Were the winds ever strong. Even my garbage containers were moving around in the shelter beside the garage.
We had a small family gathering which included the youngest daughters boyfriend to celebrate her passing into adulthood. it was funny that her dad baked the birthday cake.
The little granddaughters sure are excited this morning. It seems the Easter bunny quietly got into our home, without waking Abbey, and left some chocolate eggs behind. It won't be long before the girls are taught the true meaning of Easter and like Santa will disappear until they have their own kids.
