A retired Educator in Ontario since 2004, I'm now about to embark on a new Teaching Career in BC. I've contracted to serve as the Special Ed. Resource Teacher at Bella Bella on Campbell Island. I've been practicing as a Psychotherapist specializing in Trauma / Grief Therapy using CB counselling and Hypnosis. (I also train others to become Hypnotisits.) I am still in awe relative to how much I've learned about life by raising a few chickens, turkeys, and ducks, and now a new puppy I call Shadow because he sticks to me like one.
I have been cooresponding with Heidi, and found your name. I have checked your page and looked at your pics and am very impressed. You must be a very busy man with your post retirement jobs. I give you a great deal of credit for giving back and helping out people who really need it.
I think the pics of your dogs are fantastic...of course, I'm a dog lover, cat lover...I guess I just enjoy all animals. If humans could be more like animals, I think that the world would be much better off.
I hope that you have a great day and wish you nothing but health, happiest and much friendship for 2011
I saw my doctor this morning and dropped my trousers to show him the large boil on my backside.
He looked a bit embarrassed and said "make an appointment at the office " and carried on with his shopping.
