Catching up on recent events May 28, 2009

The new photo is from the west sidewalk of the Burrard Bridge looking towards the west end and the North Shore mountains.

There is a saying that us retired folks like to use - it seems that in retirement you are more busy than when you are working and never seems to have the time to do the things that you enjoy like updating this blog - well add in the fact that the weather has been very summer like and being a person who likes outdoor activities that will explain the recent lack of posts to this site.

I spent last weekend doing a number of city bike rides - out to our western beaches like Spanish Banks, a complete loop of the Stanley Park Seawall and a complete loop of the False Creek seawall - taking a fair number of photos.

I also attended a wind up volunteer party for those of us who helped our local candidate get elected - enjoyed meeting some of the people from the campaign and enjoying some free beer and snacks - we were disappointed in the lost of Wally in Delta South but happy to have a nice new member from this riding to go for any concerns etc. There is some speculation as to whether Mary will go into Cabinet or get a Minister of State posting but with 6 new female members elected and her having no elected experience the odds are a little against her. The Cabinet should be appointed in about 10 days.

I have also posted earlier about how I keep meeting people on the street that I knew from my working days and the past week has seen me bumping into a number of former members - in a couple of cases I was able to have some lengthy conversations and got caught up in there happenings in the world.
