Golden Pond RV Park, Mossley, On.

Retirement is pending, only 5 working days left as I write this. I am anxious for the day to come and ready to leave and start our new adventure. Pat has been patiently waiting for me to reach that day.

Day to day I do my routine keeping up with the daily inflow of items, preparing outgoing items and the daily incidentals that come along. Also my replacement is now there so that I can pass on the ins and outs of the job. One of my concerns is the operation of the fork lift truck. This person has never been on a fork lift before, the employer sent them for training, the theory being at the trainers location and the practical done at our warehouse and using our equipment. With only a few days in there is some serious improvement that needs to happen. I have many concerns whether this person will make it. I know it isn't my problem but I do worry for my boss. Enough said about it.
 I find that as I talk about it, when someone asks, that I get emotional about it, which normally isn't me.  It has been suggested, that I realize that 26 years of my life are coming to an end. Well, that has to be it. So, I'll live thru it, I'm sure, though the last day may be a little ruff.
With out sounding my own horn, I am proud that I have made a difference no matter what position I have held during those 26 years. The last two and a half years have especially been the happiest, returning to the place where I started 26 years ago. The difference in the warehouse was noticed by my fellow workers and others who work in the different departments in the building and passed that  on to me, thank you to all those who noticed and took the the time say so.
When I started this post, I had 5 days to go, now I'm down to 3, Tues, Wed, and Thurs. of next week.
My part time job at CanAm RV will also be coming to an end, as we will be heading to our summer place near Durham, On. This is also disheartening as I do really enjoy the orientations and meeting of people.
So for now I'll end this post. Stay tune for our new chapter in our lives, just around the corner.
Until the next time, take care. 


  1. I know what you mean about taking pride in everything you do but like you said now it's someone else's turn. Ask Pat how freeing retirement is. The only commitment you will have will be to one another.
    We never did get together after the new year so maybe that will finally happen once you're settled into your new lifestyle.
    I couldn't leave any comments on Pat's blog because she has her settings at Google+ which shuts lots of commenters out.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. So true Rick. I will have try and remember how to change Pat's blog so others can leave a comment. Yes time has flown and we never got together. We are suppose to be in Chatham at the airport for a RV airplane event on the July 15,16,17, if you felt like taking a drive, we could meet up there.
      May even have to be this winter in the south west. I'm sure our paths will cross soon.

    2. Hi Rick and Kathy. I'm sorry that you are unable to comment on my blog but as Bill says we can't remember what or how to change it. We'll figure it out, I'd love to hear from more readers.

  2. An exciting new chapter is to begin, so much to see and do, new places and new faces, life is awesome. Enjoy it.

  3. All this is true George , and looking forward to it. We will sooncross paths again to. Take care.
