Fade to Black

All photos taken on February 5, 2022.

Arriving in Kamloops, we gassed up before checking into our “usual hotel”. After sanitizing the room, we phoned Pizza Now for a large pizza and headed out for fine in-car dining. The pizza did not disappoint.

As we were time shifting to get back on Alberta time, we did our best to move our old people’s dining hour forward to 3:30 (4:30 Alberta). Back at the hotel, we relaxed in our oasis of calm (no sports tournament guests on this trip). From time to time, I would take photos out the East window, which looked down the valley and I eventually came up with the time sequence idea. Last photos taken, like the day, we hit the pit and faded to black. Tomorrow would be a long driving day.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Kamloops is not one of our favourite spots, but it makes a good break point in the drive and the view is hard to beat from that hotel room. Thanks for reading Marion. Happy Friday. Allan
