Moving Along

Friday, November 02, 2018

Colonoscopy complete, one polyp removed. Now it's time for the eye doctor next week. I imagine that will be cataract surgery on the right eye and I'll get to see if the retinal surgery worked.

Purchase of a couple small super-zoom cameras has renewed my interest in photography and now I have the bug for a drone. I think a slide show incorporating stills, short video clips, and drone shots will be my next project. I have also been digitizing my music collection and coming to realize that I have a lot of music. I'm finally utilizing the excess capacity of my most recent computer purchase. The next thing is moving my genealogy records from an older computer to this one and then developing a backup system. Think I'll get a safe deposit box to keep one in and switch it out monthly? Anyway, retirement suits me. Going on five years now and not bored yet.

The most important part of all this is that I'm sticking with my healthy living plan and it sure makes it a lot easier to enjoy the various hobbies without all that weight, weakness, and disease to drag me down. When you get much past sixty it's very likely you will experience health problems, but actively pursuing a healthy way of living sure does lessen the impact and duration of those problems. If you're a seasoned citizen and new to SparkPeople, jump in and get involved. You'll thank yourself later!

    Hey Dave, I just bookmarked your Flickr page in the hope that you'll post some of the new photos and slide shows for us to see. You've got such a great eye - I'm glad the doctor is fixing it! LOL. I'm glad that retirement is working so well for you. I've got a little while, but I'm getting more eager every day!

    Hey Dave, looks like you're getting it from both ends. it's interesting that our interest in certain gadgets align. I just got back into photography after a 20 year hiatus. You can imagine how much the technology has changed. I'm also interested in a drone but I'm resisting the urge to buy one at least until I move into the mountains.

    I'm in total agreement with you on the health and wellness front. And SparkPeople has been a significant part of my journey for the past few years. I wish you the best going forward my Spark Friend.
