Retired and enjoying the extra time to spend with my pets.
What Is on My Horizon?
May, 2019 The day of the Cairns reef trip started sunny with a fresh breeze. My cousin Sylvie dropped me off at the reef marina on her way to work. "Have fun and don't touch the crocodiles!" she shouted jokingly as she drove away. I hoped to see only turtles and colorful fish on this four hour tour but Sylvie had mentioned crocs and small sharks were in the water. She said sharks and jellyfish were the reasons why she walked on the local beaches but didn't swim.
My Voyager Cat Crew
April 2020 After my dear old dog and cat died from illness in late winter, I decided that I wouldn't go looking for a pet. Instead, I would simply wait and see what happenstance would bring me. I decided on certain rules. My pet would need to be under 30 lbs so that I could lift him/her easily in a medical emergency. I would probably have a cat so any dog I might adopt must get along well with small animals.
Merlot and art
T hursday. I bumped into him on Sainte-Catherine in Montreal and dropped my shopping bag. Apparently my ocean-blue eyes and blonde hair with runner-athletic build was his type. He was one of my many types which range from tall slim blonde Scandinavians to dark haired stocky men with a raffish 5 o'clock shadow. He apologized for the collision even though it was my fault for not looking left when I left the shop. He politely requested a dinner date for the following evening. Free food! I was delighted but insisted on meeting him at the restaurant he suggested.
