Personal re-introduction

Canada
January 29, 2016 6:56pm CST
I have been a member of my lot for a fair amount of time. But then they went off the air. I just heard not too long ago that they were back. I must say I like their interface much better than the old one. So here I am back and I would like to introduce myself. I am a French born Canadian but as you can see I am also very fluent in English. I was a registered nurse for 21 years first in a surgery/gynecology department, followed by the AKU department (artificial kidney unit) and finished my last 13 years in the ICU (intensive care unit). I took a voluntary lay off and I have never been back to nursing or even looked back. I am afraid to say that I had had enough. So now at the ripe of age of 61 I am retired and writing as much as I can first because I enjoy it and second because it is giving me some spare change.

All I know, the site didn't stop operating. The discussion continued among the myLotters. The only thing stop is to earn some money in this site. But now, they are back on spreading good news to old members like you.

They never really went 'off the air' but they stopped their pay program for a few years...they were still here, and some people were still posting. Welcome back.

Your nursing history is awesome, you must be a strong person to do it for as long as you did. I am happy to meet you. I am a Canadian too with duel citizenship (US) born in the states. I love Canada - been here 35 years. I am a bit (10 years) older than you and I paint on slate. (I don't speak French)

@frankie2013 Sure I buy new and used Roofing slates, I prefer the used, they are thinner and more interesting because of acid rain that changes their colors. I do a lot of writing on them, making funny signs, and I do welcome signs and all sorts of things that people ask me to do.

@frankie2013 We drove from Alberta to the maritimes twice. Quebec had lovely clean campsites and highway stops!

Being retired is great don't you think? We are both retired now and love having time to ourselves.
