Industrial-ites

Okay, so I got carried away when I said I’d be around here more frequently…. I lied, but with the best of intentions. Seems all I’ve done lately is work which, after all that time off, is a good thing. Trouble is I never know where I’ll wind up working, or when.

Lemme see – I’ve worked in a hospital, at a railroad siding, a retail store, had a few weeks at an office building which houses the project mgmt / engineering / design drafting facilities for a nuclear power plant (that was interesting), the last few nights at an EMS station. Mostly a mixture of afternoon shifts and nights with a day shift or two thrown at me to keep things spicy and off-balance. Am I coming or going? Who knows; not I for sure.

Mirrored Horizon

Lynda and I are mostly like ships passing in the night catching the occasional meal together or a couple of hours planted in front of the TV before one of us is off running again. Things have been busy. We had Milo back to the clinic in Toronto where he had his surgery for his final check-up and we’re told we’ve done an excellent job with him. There has been good bone growth around the plates and where the bone was cut. We can finally breathe a bit easier but have to introduce full activity levels incrementally.

Since I last wrote here I have finished Eric Clapton’s autobiography which managed to diminish my image of him…. a writer he ain’t. (but gutsy to have a stab at it and lay it all out there) I’ll continue to admire him for what it is he does best – write and play great music. Following that I read a really humourous book called “The Hypochondriac’s Guide To Life. And Death.” The author had me blowing pop out my nose with some of his lines. Shouldn’t drink and read at the same time, I guess – dangerous and messy.

  1. I could use a good humorous book. I’ll add that to my reading list.

    I really like your first photo. Nice title to go with it, too. 🙂

    Good to see you popping in once in a while, Norm.


  2. Looks like it’ll be ‘catch-as-catch-can’ for posts but I’ll put something up whenever I have a chance Robin. 😉 I miss it around here.


  3. we miss you too Norm
    your work sounds extremely varied, are you temping through an agency?

    that funny book appeals to me also, off to have a look see if the library stocks it…


  4. i’ve just ordered that book through amazon
    8 cents for the book $15 postage
    the joys of living on the other side of the world 😦
