OH Geoff

That was so nice to see that again. It was such an honor to be included in all the videos that way.

Thanks also for the good wishes for my retirement. I can't believe how free it feels to not worry about getting up early and getting ready to go and deal with cranky patients. I was truly stressed out and had to leave working. 

Now my biggest worry is what to cook each day and that is fun work.

Take care and have a great holiday.

Annett

Annette: Congrads on the retirement. 6yrs, 5 months to go and I'll be on the sideline then. I'll be just a smidgen over 62 at that time. I so desire to see the day when I can just do my own thing.

  A timely word of warning for y'all young oldies, now that you have the freedom and relaxation all your friends, neighbours and relations will see you in demand as baby-sitters, house-sitters, dog minders, cat minders, mentors, relief drivers and general handy people. Just you wait and see but enjoy whatever happens.

I’m not exactly retired, but I sure don’t miss the 9 to 5 routine.  Geoff, we try to recruit you guys (and gals) because you do a good job!  X:X

Annette, missed your post.  congratulations.  was thinking about you when i was home in Oct.  Enjoy retirement!! 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Interesting.... we retire what I calculate within a month of each other - may we both see many more healthy years with all those we love. Good health and enough pension and social security for all, and to all... a good night :)

Happy New year Geoff. Glad to hear it's off to a good start. Hope we don't screw it up when it gets to our side of the earth! :)

   This Coffee's Ready is a bit draining this way, I'm up to my 2nd. cup this morning and I have to wait about 16 hours till the rest of the world is up and about  !!!

    Raining again this morning and more to come over the next few days. Cool for January (about 18 degrees C), delays the fire danger time by a couple more weeks. We can relax for awhile.
