Four Strong Winds - Red Deer Alberta


Four Strong Winds
Four strong winds that blow lonely seven seas that run high
All these things that don't change come what may
But my good times are all gone and I'm bound for moving on
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way
I may go out to Alberta weather's good there in the fall
Got some friends that I can go to workin' for
Still I wish you'd change your mind if I asked you one more time
But we've been through that a hundred times or more
If I get there before the snow flies and things are going good
You could join me if I sent you down the fare
But if you'll wait until it's winter it would do no good
But the winds sure can blow cold way out there
Four strong winds that blow lonely...


Great song from my childhood.  I left Mexico on January 9th, stopped in Vancouver for a meeting and carried right on through to Red Deer Alberta where I had work waiting for me at a petrochemical plant owned by Dow Chemicals. 

I spent Jan through March doing Human Resources work on a railway project and then from April through to the end of June, I worked on a turnaround as a Safety Manager, mostly as a contractor liaison keeping everyone on the same page.

As I type, I am on my last week in Red Deer and after turning down several job offers in both BC and Alberta, I have decided to return home and work on a few projects which have been simmering on the back burner for far too long.  Stay tuned as I build a Gypsy Caravan and finish my boat!  :)
Its summertime!
