I retired from my credit union job on the 2nd of January 2018. I find myself beginning a new adventure - retired. Although I'm retired from the credit union job I am still doing photography and writing projects and working on the at home projects that have often been ignored. It seems we have a basement filled with projects.
I have also discovered that a chunk of my "social calendar" is being spent with doctors and dentists. I am thankful for great insurance.
It is my goal to do more blogging and posting of photographs but will likely take me a month or two to acclimate.

I know that most of us when our Mothers told us something when we were teenagers, probably didn't take the advice. Perhaps we filed her advice away in some distant place in our brain.
My Mothers advice found its way to the top of my mind last week. I am working on a credit card promotion for the credit union I work for, and part of the promotion is to encourage everyone to be aware of opportunities to ask people if they would be interested in one of our credit cards.
The memory of what my Mother told me when I was about 14 came rushing to the surface, "You know that they're going to say either yes, or no. If you know that NO may be the answer and are prepared for it, then ask the question. If you don't ask the question, the answer will always be no."
How many times have we been to shy to ask some one for something? I find myself failing to ask the question - not as frequently as in the past. But, I am prepared for no, and you know what? Yes is quite frequently the answer. So - go ahead and ask!

I just received a MMS Photo of a picture of their berth in the sleeping car. A couple of minutes later I received another picture stating "this" is our room.
Curiosity got the better of me so I called...It seems that she was in someone else's room and after she took the picture she rang for the porter and asked about their luggage - like where was it?
Her luggage was in her berth - in the next car...

Last Sunday as I was leaving the church I needed to make a quick restroom stop. I closed the door to discover that someone had put paper towel into the toilet (the church has a cistern system and we have paid thousands of dollars for one problem or the other this year alone. Paper towel going down the system creates difficulties.) At any rate - I fished it out and then went to flush the toilet to discover that it was busted. They just don't make toilets like they used to...
I called the church to let the Church Secretary know about the issue and then later in the day sent an email to the priest to let him know as well.
It seems that he had 7 or 8 people tell him while he was still at the church, and received another 1/2 dozen or so emails later in the day. When I spoke with him the next day he simply said, "I wish I could get that quick of response from a stewardship letter."
