No I never get bored. Sometimes I think I put in more hours than I did when I had a paying job. It seems like there is always something going on.
Having a blog increases the chances of getting involved in a new activity. On the 26th I received a comment on one of my one-liner posts. Earlier on the 26th, there was a terrible accident in the Volcan area. The person writing me was living in Wisconsin and wanting to find out information for his Panamanian wife. She had heard that her brother was involved in the accident.
I deleted the comment and the individual and I continued communicating via email and by phone using my MagicJack.
I made a couple calls and withing 30 minutes was talking to a relative of the deceased brother. Sad conformation, but at least the wondering was over.
Normally I would hear about something like this, where a U.S. citizen needs information in Chiriquí, by being contacted by the U.S. Embassy. This time Google provided the contact.
For lunch today, I am meeting with Ryan Grassley, who made the incredible video I posted a while back.
He has been making some more videos and the last I saw was really fantastic. I will be posting more about his video’s later.
When the blog is idle or has less posts than normal, it probably doesn’t mean that nothing is going on, but more likely enough that I haven’t had time to post anything. For me, I would rather be busy than idle.
Everyone spends their retirement days differently. I feel fortunate to spend mine the way I do.
