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. :)

Today will bring increasing cloudiness with rain beginning early this afternoon. Today's high will be near 7C(45F). UV index 3 or moderate.
Tonight will see the rain ending this evening then cloudy. The overnight low will be 1C(34F).
I had a good day yesyerday. I got off of my fanny and took Abbey on her walk along the gopher trails but there were no bunnies for her to chase.
We stopped and talked with a trucker. I thought he may have been given bad directions and couldn't find where to deliver his load. That seems to happen quite often and I've helped a few lost souls get home quicker. it turned out this one was just filling in his log book. He was a lucky man, his wife was the second driver. What a great way to do a job that normally keeps you away from home most of the time.
The Queen has started another geneaolgy project for a lady at work. It's funny, her mother was in the same class as me in high school. I remeber one time when I was a teenager walking with a friend looking for a place to party we knocked on a door at a home that had the lights on. It turned out to be her home and she invited us in and we partied untill the wee hours with her and her husband. Gosh I was a bad boy in my youth!
Strange how the lady keeps popping back into my life. it must be at least 45 years since me and my buddy knocked on her door and I don't think I've seen her since. The lady is now divorced from the husband of 45 years ago and lives in British Columbia.
