Long time no write

Five years have gone by since I last wrote here.  Lots has gone on but bygones are bygones.  Since then we, the wife and I have been on 9 cruises, a tenth one next February.  I’ve had a triple bypass and life has been wonderful since then.  Fortunaterly our Canadian healthcare system is universal and public otherwise, in the U.S. for instance, I would be either dead or bankrupt.  and forget the cruises then.

The  caribbean islands,Mediterranean sea and the wonderful Greek islands, the Baltic, the Canaries wonderful experiences and so enriching, next the Bahamas.  In between short stays in Mexico and Florida.

Retirement is really exhausting.

 

Magic carpet

 

 

Is this a Persian Magic Carpet?  No, just the Laurentian forest canopy viewed from 2 000 feet high while flying with my son on this sunny October 8 Thanksgiving Day, here in Canada.  Picture taken near Rawdon, in Lanaudière.  Despite it’s small size, Rawdon is a multiethnic village with a sizable Russian origin population and some beautifull orthodox chuches and bizantine inspired buildings.
