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. :)

Tonight will be overcast in the evening, then partly cloudy as the overnight low falls to 3C. The wind will be northerly at at 5 to 15 km/h.
After getting home yesterday I took Abbey for a short walk yesterday. Did she ever like that. When I'm not home the poor dog doesn't get her daily walk.
While at the hosputal the Queen came to visit as often as possible and usally took me outside. It sure was a nice break from sitting on the bed or chair in the room. I had a TV but the gentleman sharing my room was partially deaf with no hearing aids and his TV drwoned out mine. It sure makes for a long day.
The first couple of days saw me on a saline soultion diet through an IV then a couple of days of clear fluids. The first real meal caused great gas pain as the trapped air in the emptied tubes started to be pushed away. Once the air was all pushed out the pain is gone.:)
While outside with the Queen the geese were constantly flying overhead. I guess they spend days on our Creasent lake and gathering there for the trip south. Portage is located on a large flyway and millions of the noisy birds fly over the city spring and fall. You can always tell when the seasons are changing from the flocks of geese flying overhead. I'll try and point my webcam upward and see if some can be caught from my window view.
