  1. Just got back from a funeral , had to drive about 600 miles. .Buddy was 62 years old and developed kidney cancer....Entire system shut down in three days(heart, liver,lungs)....Hard working Farmer construction type and I'd say clean living(except for the Beers)...You never know what this life has in store for you, giving thanks for every sunrise.........
  2. Downsizing is so important or even un-cluttering on regular basis..........I did set some boundaries when it comes to pets after I moved ...My yard area has shrunk and I don't have the time to walk dogs like I used to......After my last Dog died I pledged that he was going to be my last....With that said a " Cat" has managed to move in for awhile and looks like its not leaving....My reduced size of living space still allows for grand kids to visit(bunk beds), two washrooms, and Fire Pit in backyard.......I'm still giving stuff away to the family(if they will take it)....Going to a Funeral tomorrow......
  3. I'm alive and doing well...appears weather will break finally....Went to my Legion Shuffle Board last night and finally won a game, lots of laughs for sure....Looking at directions on how to put Vinyl siding on my new shed........need some warmth.....Kids are on there way to Mexico, next year Yuma for me if health holds up.....Take care
  4. Ground Hog around here said early Spring(didn't see his shadow?)...But since New Years it has been Cold , record Cold in some places...On that note, Looking forward for some warm dry weather........Outside twice trying to rough in some shelving, less than an hour both times.....going to 32 F tomorrow...that's warm so good weather for shelving...have a good evening...
  5. Found a new way to embarrass myself, neighbors asked if I'd be interested in going to play Shuffel board ...I said yes, even though its been 40 years since I played.....I lost all three games I played but "won " the losers prize($4).....Lots of fun and met a whole bunch of new people....It's on my Tuesday schedule as a reoccurring event now...Still in deep freeze up here, another 10-12 days then its over.....below Zero for the high
  6. Valentines Day always is an excuse for an outing for me.......We were always great ones for the Holidays....St Pats day next(all excuses for Beer)
  7. Gwen I see the west coast is getting some unseasonable weather.......the coldest I have ever been was early January 1970 on West Coast ......In those days they were claiming next Ice age was coming....West coast (humidity) is the toughest of all Chills.....Read some of the Ferry's were cancelled.....
  8. Snow accumulations this time of the year....particularly in the mountains, can bring another spring of high water/flooding...The only benefit of biting cold is absence of snow...On that note ,two trucks at neighbors working on frozen water lines........I'm assisting friends frozen battery I think, broke piece of plastic already, everything is so brittle......Grandson's birthday on the weekend, it was -47 in Fort McMurray last week.....He was proud and boasted about no school for two days.....Stay warm and healthy
  9. KayC.......I think the weather Vortex or whatever they call it has peaked/worst is over...My friends from my old Town are getting pretty cool days as of late.....How much snow around your area and is this a normal year?
  10. Talk about the weather.......-39 with the Wind this morning, unbelievably refreshing......Super Bowl plans to be a bit muted....I respect weather conditions more and more over the years....Adding some more gas line anti freeze ....This cold will be with us up here for two weeks..Hope all is well for my Southern friends...
  11. Marg, you motivated me with the talk of your stationary bike....just did a twenty minute spin(back side sore but muscles feel good).....Still have to work off all the Christmas snacking weight I gained. Intermingling with neighbours, involved in playing cards and some Dice game, its fun meeting new people........Neighbours got me to go to Dance lessons next Tuesday...Western Line Dancing...Don't regret the move at all.....except the cold blasts from the North(sure feel alive).......Got a three year olds Birthday on Sat.....hopefully won't be too hard on me...those kids have so much energy........best wishes again
  12. KayC, is it Flu like symptoms that just don't get better......I was slowed down for about two weeks, chest, head , and even Bones were sore.....I was surprised how many people that have been effected...Next year flu shot just for Insurance...
  13. George maintaining your 145 pound weight loss is an incredible achievement......work outs everyday are good...I would listen to the trainer and vary between the cardio and the resistance/weights........You are truly an inspiration...thanks
  14. I see the chill is coming back...Siberian High as they say, the temps will be -20 up here for about 5 days....Strangely, as long as the wind stays away, not too bad...Many years ago we had -52 in Fort McMurray Alberta(300 miles North of Edmonton)...The Diesel fumes produced a thick fog, something out of Stephen King....Is this Government shenanigans effecting Pensions or medical stuff?.......have a good day
  15. Well , having the pleasure of a 7 year old for a couple of days....I decided to purchase a sled (plastic toboggan/) and provide some old school entertainment......It was a big hit and tired the kid out...We completed the day with a Weiner and Marshmallow roast.....Haven't done that in years , brings back the frozen feet and Hot chocolate memories ........Still a bit cool up here , always below freezing but not outrageous.....
