A few years ago a friend invited me to co-author with him on a new blog he started. I wanted to do that, but never got around to it. In time you may see why, but I’ll leave that for now. And like my friend, I think it’s never too late to start a blog.
Today I decided I had something to say, but couldn’t find the password, so I’m starting from scratch.
I’ve been an engineer and engineering manager for more years than I can remember, and after a rather drastic downsizing by my employer of 23 years, I found myself in a position where I could retire. So I did. Theoretically. Actually not so much. One thing I did that was definitely in that direction was to join AARP.
A few years ago my wife and I moved to a place in the country. We built a house, built a big garden, and set up some space for animals. We now have goats, donkeys and chickens, plus three dogs. And a cat. These animals all have a purpose in our life – the goats are for milk and cheese; the chickens are for eggs, the cat is for catching mice in the barn, and the donkeys are for…. eating hay.
I decided to start this blog because something caught my attention that deserved a response, and I had more to say than just a comment on somebody else’s blog. I’ll get to that on another day, so for now I’ll just say Hi and Welcome to my blog.
