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. :)

What a surprize I got last night. A long lost friend called last night. I haven't heard from him in over 35 years. he moved to British Columbia and we lost track of each other. At one time the Queen and I visited him and his wife on a weekly basis and on most nights drank too much. We chatted about some of the stupid things we had done .
We had bought a small home made 10 foot plywood boat with a 3Hp motor.One time after a way too many cool ones the 2 of us and a friend decided to go fishing on a small river close to Portage. The 3rd guy stood up to relieve himself and capsized the little boat. Luckily we made it to shore safely and salvaged the boat. It's a wonder I survived those hard drinking years. The memories are something I haven't shared with my daughters. It's no wonder the Queen put her foot down and told me to grow up once the family started to arrive.
