Me at Pat's countertop in his fabulous new condo in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada


I'm here!

I really am!

Oh my, so much going on in my "retired" world. 

Just this morning I finished updating and mailing the minutes of our homeowners' association board committee meeting.  Yes, I HAVE been roped into the position as (acting) secretary. I hardly have enough time to do all my other activities and yet here I am, SECRETARY to our homeowners' association. A subject worthy of several blog posts, which you know I WILL do.

"Marie", one of my faithful blog followers left a comment about seeing enough of that Harvey Weinstein photo I left for you all to see for days on my last blog post.  For that I do apologize folks.  That wasn't my intention. With this blog post that offensive image of Harvey the Pig will go away.

Marie and others have asked for more blog posts about my Canadian vacation of which I fully intend to oblige. I have many photos and videos to share.  What's holding me back though besides procrastination is that I was going to use You Tube's Video Editor, but they discontinued it!  Now I have to use iMovie on my iMac and that's another whole time consuming activity what I have been procrastinating getting into.  But, I will.

Last Sunday Bill and I made the two and a half hour drive to Pennsylvania to attend my 58th high school class reunion.  More photos and videos taken there too folks of which I intend to share, hopefully after I make some cool video collages in iMovie.  By the way, this was my first class reunion that Bill attended with me.  For about forty years I've been asking him to go with me to my high school class reunions and he finally does when he's 89 years old.  My classmates think I took up with an OLD MAN.  Thanks Bill (smile).

So folks, that's where I am now. Still trying to get my act together and wondering where all the hours go in a day.  And to think I used to work full-time and do so much in addition to my work and commute time.  How did I ever do that? Maybe because I didn't take daily two hour afternoon naps like I just did today.  

Have a great day!!!

Note: the header photo on this blog I took of the lobby of the Royal Connaught Hotel in downtown Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. That is Pat in the green T-shirt soaking in the luxuriousness of the lobby. Some lobby Pat!

Sounds like you've had a lot going on beyond blogging. I am glad the Weinstein pic isn't the first thing I see here!

So much going on, so much to talk about, keep posting.

Ron, thanks for coming back to us, please don't stay away so long in the future, we miss your postings. Have a great day!

I apologize for leaving that Harvey Weinstein pic on my blog for so long. I didn't realize what I was subjecting my blog followers to! Won't do it again.

Dr. Spo,
First reunion I attended was my 20th. Then the 25th, 35th, 40th, 45th, 50th and then every year since with a few years missing. We have the reunions every year now because the classmates are dying off at an alarming rate. I wish I had attended earlier reunions but they couldn't find me when I lived in New Jersey in Philadelphia. They (Carole and Jean, the two classmates who have kept us all together) found me now though. I'm glad we can get together every year.

Ron said...

I will! Things are settling down so I can now post more. Lots to share!

Ron said...

Thank you so much for your encouragement! I will post most often. I love to post. I'm glad I have a following.

It ain't so easy being gray, retired that is. I am limited physically in what I can do now as well and I still can't get everything I want and can do done. I have fallen behind in my Blog myself. Was so glad to see you post a new one. I was sick of seeing Harvey, too.

I didn't realize until too late that I kept that Harvey Weinstein picture up way too long on my blog. I'll try to avoid that grossness in my future blogs.
