The final chapter..

Some time has passed. The house is finally empty and the new owners have taken possession. How bitter sweet to say goodbye to 45 years and hello to the welcoming of the new family with the new baby on the way. The house will have joy and laughter and be uplifted; I am very grateful. This is also a formal thanks to my baby brother and sister in law for all their help and commitment to the project.



Thanks to all who have left me wonderful notes during this trying time...my smiles are… Continue

Hello one and all

Just thought I would say hello to everyone. Trying hard here to get organized and this is one of the steps. Glad we have Zoomers and Carp to tell us things. I like this name more than Baby Boomers. To me B B should have been from people who were in the war and came home and started have more children. My parents were not married to each other - before the war. Did not even live in the same country and had no children before the war. My Dad was too young at the start of the war and only was in… Continue

Dogs Don't Have Souls, Do They?



I remember bringing you home. You were so small and cuddly with your tiny paws and soft fur.



You bounced around the room with eyes flashing and ears flopping.

Once in a while, you'd let out a little yelp just to let me know this

was your territory.



Making a mess of the house and chewing on everything in sight became a passion and when I scolded you, you just put your head down and looked up at me with those… Continue

The best of Turks & Caicos - food & drink

The Best of Turks and Caicos - Food & Drink category



Living in the Turks and Caicos Islands for the past 12 years has given the crew at DiscoverTCI the insider's edge for putting together a 'Best of Turks & Caicos - Food & Drink category'. For those of you interested in visiting this Caribbean delight, this list should help with 'where shall we try next' when it comes to deciding where to eat and drink down here in the Turks & Caicos and will also tell you the… Continue

Trips I have made

It is the time of life where things start to happen. I've "wished" most of my life, now I am "doing".

This is the result of combining three hobbies, flying, astronomy and geology. Astro-geology is a new science (started in the 1950's).

Likely Why All My Best Friends have been Male

Yesterday the lady who runs our garden group phoned me. She wasn't

happy with the way people were going behind her back these days. One in

particular seems to need a bit of straightening out as she has either

forgotten what this group is, and isn't, or perhaps she never understood in

the first place. The one who called me is too nice to ever confront her,

but I guess I'm not.



We had a very formal garden club a few years back. It had monthly meetings

It's Got It All! Discover Square Dancing--Inspiration From A Dancing Boomer

As a guy who discovered dance at 10 years of age, I can’t say that I’ve ever suffered from the two-left-feet syndrome, something that many men put forward as the reason they are uncomfortable with dancing. While I did the night school thing to learn how to ballroom dance, which I do enjoy, it’s square dancing that became my lifelong hobby.



Perhaps you’ve seen the tv commercial on Shaw cable or Star Choice satellite that opens with a couple saying “if you like to walk, you’ll love… Continue

First time chat

Went to say hello at lounge and left just as fast. Where are the real zoomers? What a bunch of nonsense, juvenile. I have a great sense of humour but please.....

If A Dog Were Your Teacher



If a dog were your teacher

These are some of the lessons you might learn...



When loved ones come home, always run to greet them

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride

Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face

to be pure ecstasy



When it's in your best interest

practice obedience

Let others know when they've invaded your territory

Take naps and stretch before… Continue

The 50,000 Year-Old Rocks

There's this place on the Bruce Trail near our farm that I call the 50,000 year-old rocks. I don't know why - I guess it's because they look like they were deposited by the glacier that cut through what is now the Beaver Valley about 50,000 years ago, if that's the right time frame. I'm not sure they've been moved since. It's one of my favourite places for meditation (sometimes chemically induced). It's quiet, tree covered and sits in an area where… Continue

Aging by the Numbers 4 - Our Wheels

When those of us born in 1954 are asked to characterize our attitudes to our rides, we are most likely to group ourselves into the categories "Driving Miss Daisy" and "My Car Is A Tool", both pretty conservative views, unlike younger Canadians who say they are "Capitalist Roadsters" or "I Love My Wheels".



We are more likely than other Canadians to have three or more automobiles in the household, and these are most likely to be large or large premium automobiles made in Japan or… Continue

In memory

My friend Susan Ryan was killed on Sunday. She was 57. She was murdered by her husband. Sue was a soft place to land, the person people went to for a kind word, a gentle smile, a gesture of compassion. Sue did not deserve this, nobody does. I am setting up a memorial fund in her honour which will service both Interim Place women and childrens' shelter and Victim Services of Peel. Her funeral will be this week I think, they still have not released the body. Mayor McCallion was a good friend of… Continue

Heart Health & the aging process

Greetings, I am requesting your help in getting word out about heart health & the aging process. If you have been reading the current series in the Toronto Star re boomers and their difficulty adjusting to the ravages of aging, you may agree with me that we can do a lot more than sit around waiting to become decrepit ! I will turn 65 in Feb., rollerblade daily in the summer, and run a cross country ski instructional program catering to the over 40 crowd when we have snow in winter. I also… Continue
