Better late than never I guess

An opinionated 78.5 year old former resident of Canada married to an American lady. Worked up until 73 then got disgusted with the company and so retired (they sent me my five year gold plated pin a couple of months later, somewhere in a landfill now). Worked for several companies and even for myself when one job dried up. Never took unemployment or any other form of payment as something usually turned up in a few weeks/months.

Card carrying member of the Conservative Party in Canada - rather different than what is considered to be a conservative here.

Looking back through all the introductions it hardly seems like 2-1/2 years. Lots of folks introduced themselves then quietly disappeared. Ah well I guess some of the repartee gets just a little edgy at times. But I did say I was opinionated.
