August 30, 2007-Summers gone.?

Hello faithful reader.

Well it looks as if summer is on its way out.


Several reasons. One, the Canadian National Exibition is on, signals unoffical end of summer, my last horse show for Trillium was last weekend, and most important, after three months off, i have a job interview scheduled for Sept 4th.

This is important, as MTO still, after 5 1/2 weeks have not done anything about my drivers physical, and the school routes are now all handed out, so job one is out. I have some temp work later in Sept to help set up a new store, but i get from the phone calls it will not lead to anything permenent.

I do have one resume in for a car parts driving position but no word.

I said all summer i did not want to get another job in surveying , as is this interview, but it sounds as if i can decide weither i want to work 3, 4, 5 days a week etc.

Job would be scanning survey plans, which is the new way of storage, as well as plans from other surveyors they have and old notes etc. Some of the old notes are in bad shape and are photographed instead. I should be able to help in that regard.
This, apperantly is an ongoing process, and has been for two summers.

Well i'm Xing my fingers. A job is a job, and i'm not really ready to fully retire, just want to slow down , but still do something. To bad my equestrian photography does not earn enough to live off of.

Thanks for listening

August 17, 2007-A busy week

Hi faithful reader. Well its been a busy few days here in the Castle. Tuesday was our 25th wedding anniversary, and we had some old friends over in the backyard for an informal open house on Wednesday night. Good to see the faces again, and see we are ALL getting a bit on in years, not just moi.LOL.

We held it during the week, as i knew everyone would not stay to late and i could at least get SOME rest after.

Thursday afternoon in town was a bit exciting. Brad May, a Stouffville resident and member of the Anheim Ducks Stanley Cup Team, had his day with the cup. An informal photoshoot and signing at Bruces Mill in the morning and then a 2 mile parade through town with the cup.

As a hockey fan, but definetley NOT a Leaf fan, i was thrilled to see the Cup. I have never seen it in person and it looks pretty good concidering where it has landed over the years.

A good week for picture orders, and i'm still waiting to hear about my physical for the bus job. Three and a half weeks and no reply. How many drivers are out there.:-)

I hate Gov red tape.

Thats it for now.

Thanks for listening.
