Tuesday 3rd May 2016.........the rest of the story!!!!
Before I start with the day here is the CHAMPION!!!!
I told you on Sunday about Heather completing her first ever marathon...well done so proud of you!!!
Some of my readers have asked me about the rest of my 1980 marriage story featured on yesterday's blog..well it is a slow day so here it is...
When we moved to Canada the day after we got married it was hard for Connie to be away from the small island of Bermuda that was her home and where her parents and friends lived and also where she had a decent job with the Air Canada.........On arrival in Canada I immediately began working for her brother he owned a large grocery store and he taught me the ropes and I became the manager working long hours.
The girls were around 13 and 15 years of age and adapted very easily to school although both of them did develop some serious behavioral issues which followed them into young adulthood.
I think a combination of me working long hours, Connie being home sick and the issues with the girls and our marriage began to go south...I will not get into all the nasty details but in 1982 I filed for divorce which turned into one of the ugliest fights I have ever been involved with and I came away with no assets and no money but a single man once again......I started to re build my life and became a Canadian citizen and everything turned around for me leading me to where I am today.
I have no regrets it is a chapter in my life that happened and I can talk about it and then put the book back on the library shelf.
I have no idea what happened to Connie and the girls my last contact was in 1993 when was informed of Connie's Father's passing.....I hope they all managed to make a success of their lives!!!
OK enough of that let me tell you about today!!!
I had a really lazy morning..breakfast outside on the deck watching the ocean and also the small hummingbird that was buzzing around the lavender plant but much too fast for me to get him on film!!
I then read and did some computer work before round noon getting set up for a couple of hikes.
The first one was here
