hey dere, Bret, Chopper, Dug.
I see Franz crawled out from underneath that rock.
been busy as hell lately.
hope all is good.
condolences on the loss of your buddy, Mike.
I quit drinkin' that stuff almost 25 years ago.......just before my last prison bit...it got way to damaging drinkin'.....
Got all three daughters home here now.....could cut the estrogen with a knife in here.....I'll be WRONG pretty much all weekend now.......
Seriously....great to get 'em all home.....
Short funny story 'bout how stupid I am....
So Brenda was playing field hockey down at the the Velodrome in Victoria and I was watching....in January...cold as heck. So the other Cowichan team was playing afterwards and asked if Brenda would 'sub' in as they were short a player. All the other 'girls' pleaded with me standing their freezing my gonads off and said 'C'mon Doug you wouldn't mind staying another game would you"?......I answered "Yah, just what I wanna do, stand around this field for another hour and a half freezin my butt off watching a bunch of fat middle aged woman slog around a field hockey pitch in January"....Well guys the only thing that saved me at that velodrome was the fact that the 30 degree banked track was smooth wet cement with a 4' high steel railing as the 10 women came at me with their field hockey sticks on the other side......
PM about to be sent, in short, my apologies :(
It does remind me though, that we are at the age when more and more of us are going through these losses of loved ones. My dad in laws kidney cancer has now spread to his liver so more chemo.....final stage of palliative care soon, I suspect.
I do wish that people can look at the benefits of Universal HealthCare, as imperfect as it is, because one MAJOR benefit is being able to convalesce or morn a loved one without feeling the stress of a pending financial doom. To me somethings are more important than politics.
Doug, have fun on the mountain with the four legged friends (and 2 legged)
Good morning, Bret and everyone!
'Mornin' Bret and everyone.. Yeah, it's 10AM, feel like a dirty hippie :D
Well.....At the Field Hockey tournament today.....I'm in charge of the cupcake sales.......WOW....that's like putting Dracula in charge of the bloodbank......
Gonna be a 'high cholesterol' day boys......
Better get my ride in early......
Ilija....have you ordered any on line RSES courses?
Doug, don't know what they are and am about to find out.. Ok, just did.. Gonna take the Fundamentals for sure, probably not the Safety/Sparkey stuff (almost exclusively overlap with what we just covered in trade school), no need for EPA as I already got my ODP.
Was originally planning on taking some night course at Humber once I got into a shop - to complement on the job experience, but I might need something extra to put on my resume before anyone takes me on, so for $150, I can did it. One of my classmates has a line on some good manufacturer t/s courses that I'll talk to him about in an hour or so.
Need any help guarding those cupcakes? I see all sorts of hooligans walking around there and the poor cupcakes need to be protected from 2 sides :D
Mike Sorry to hear about your Dog. My dog has been a God send
Stay inside, Bret!!
Looks like it's HOT down there.
