A Leap Forward In Time

Way back in early 2009 I created my first post to my first blog in WordPress, actually my first blog ever.  Now, close to six years later, I am posting my second time to this blog.  Certainly a leap forward in time.

Well, during this leap, I had created another blog in Blogger, with a number of posts, talking about our trip to Malaysia in the fall of 2013.  That blog started about halfway through our trip after some friends suggested that I blog about what we were doing, what we were seeing and to include some photos as well.  I thought this a reasonable idea so I began, and tried to play catch-up the rest of the time.  The truth be known, at this time, a year later, the blog is still not complete, however I will get it done.

I have just created another one on Blogger as we are off to Malaysia again early next year.  This time the aim will be to stay ahead of the game.

Now back to this blog.  As I have reached seniorhood (one of my “friends” recently posted on Facebook “Happy birthday to Canada’s newest cheque receiver”), it seems that I have become more reflective in some ways, as well as having many memories that I feel I should share before they are lost.  I am not being fatalistic, merely realistic (and quite forgetful at times).

The name of the blog, “Richard’s Ramblings”, is quite appropriate as my posts will range from events today, to things that happened anytime in the last sixty-five years, to even my thoughts about stuff occuring before then.

I don’t yet have a tremendous amount of expertise in blogging so I hope any readers will be patient, however I do hope that you will be entertained as well.

About Richard Le Sueur

In the past I never considered that I lead an overly interesting life, however I have since learned that "interesting" is very subjective and has a variety of concepts. I have not been much of a dare-devil or thrill-seeker but I have done things and been places that many others have not. It seems that there are those who enjoy my recollecting of these occasions, and that is one of the reasons for this blog. Another reason is to share some of my thoughts because generally, sharing is good. I had a career in Canada's military, have worked for various charities and non profits, had several businesses and now work on a casual basis at a local Royal Canadian Mounted Police detachment. I have lived in Canada literally coast to coast to coast and yet seem to have merely touched the surface of what our country has to offer. I have two wonderful children, and through marriage, have gained two more along with seven grandchildren. I love people and yet spend an inordinate time by myself. I am not shy about saying that I like/respect/admire someone, may offer criticisms of those I don't, but I refuse to badmouth or speak in a derogatory form about anyone. Some of what I say may be thoughtful, some witty, some perhaps silly. Whatever it is, it is all from me. I welcome any who wish to follow me, and I welcome any comments, as long as they are not rude or vulgar, in which case they will be deleted.
