MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

A Bucket & A Light Bulb

Leave a comment

Nat had a bad night. Was up most of it with a slight fever and chills. So today we took it easy and just stayed put. The highlight of our entire day was a hydro-like truck that pulled up in front of our house. After the driver checked a piece of paper, he pulled the truck to the opposite side of the street and backed it down parallel with the corner street lamp. Then the other gentleman got out of the cab, put on his harness, jumped in the bucket and raised himself up to where he could reach the lamp. He promptly changed the light bulb, lowered himself down, jumped out of the bucket, hopped in the cab and they both drove away!! Life can’t get much more exciting than that!!!!

Born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada, with 5 sisters and a brother. Now retired, my husband and I travel, play golf and am slowly renovating our new (old) home. After my kidney transplant in 1999, we've learned to enjoy life to the fullest. Nat and I have driven across Canada, taken an Alaskan cruise and drove home via the Northern United States. We've also been to Mexico, the Caribbean, the East Coast of Canada and Cape Breton. We've done the "Snowbird" thing, having lived in Destin, Florida for a couple of months of the year. In 2007 we changed our travel plans in order to move into and renovate our new "old" home, but hope to someday get back on the road again. We also love returning to Scotland (Nat's origin of birth) to visit his family and tour the Highlands and surrounding Isles.
