  1. Up here rural mailbox vertical support stands have to be well off the side of the road with the mailbox on a horizontal extender.  This is so that the snowplow blade can go under the mailbox without taking it out.

    Think of how hard it is for some of them to just make change!!!

     

    Education isn’t what it used to be and we often mistake ignorance for stupidity!!

     

    Ignorance can be cured with education, or sometimes with experience.


     Stupid is forever and often goes all the way to the BONE!!

     

    Fortunately, the cash register tells them what the change will once they punch in the amount of dollars the customer gave them. Otherwise, you will see calculators come out or stand there wondering what to do next.

    One of the things with my bout with whatever the hell it was was that my lady told me she felt crummy and I felt crummy the next day.

     

    Allowing a factor for denial on the part of the first person... this thing does seem to spread like wildfire.

     

    I did not get the pneumonia either, but the cough was bad and hung on and on. I felt my hernia meshes stressing from the cough. Shower steam may have helped. It won't hurt IMO.

     

    I am not a doctor, but I will be staying at the Red Roof Inn for a couple nights. Do not lay on your back any more than absolutely necessary. But if you do get the pneumonia, get professional support asap!

     

    Need to get the pneumonia shot, it's good for life. It's free for seniors in Canada.  How many people do you know or heard of that went to the hospital for something else but, died of pneumonia instead.  Take care of yourself.

    Tomorrow the U.S. land borders open up.  They said on the news that the nearby border towns and campgrounds on the Canadian side are filled up with the Canadian Snowbirds waiting for the 3:00 am opening.   So instead of the Snowbirds filtering down to Florida and Arizona over a period of time, they will now be hit with a single wave similar to the Oklahoma Land Rush.  Hang onto your hats.

     

    My error a double post, diregard.

    Yep.

    The Kid is now officially a fugitive criminal here in Canada. I may have to sneak across the border to the USA, then on to some place without an extradition treaty with Canada.

    I got the warning message on my cell phone that the Canada Revenue Agency (Tax Collectors) had issued a warrant for my arrest and I could avoid it all by pressing "!" and talking to the Taxation Agent.

    So, now I'm on the run. LOL

     

    I REALLY angered one of them when he called.

    Seems the chap I was speaking with didn't care for me asking if his mother was still working in the Kamathipura area of Mumbai or if she was now around the Chor Bazaar?

    He got really rude answering me and called me a F Canadian.

     

    Revenue Canada has given up on me.  I had an arrest warrant issued about 3 years ago and they haven't caught up to me yet.  Now I'm advised that Canada Border Services have issued an arrest warrant for me, for having a parcel addressed to me from the U.S. that contained illegal items.

     

    I remember a couple of years ago I received a call From a Sgt Bill Johnson of the Calgary Police Force as Revenue Canada had turned the case over to them and, an arrest warrant was issued in my name.  A couple of red flags popped up.  Calgary police haven't used the term "police force" in their name for years.  They use "police service" and, Bill Johnson had a strong East Indian accent.

    I'm still on the run.

    Grandpa was 22 years old and working on the railroad in Texas.  Grandma, his second wife, was 8 years old, living on a cattle ranch in Texas.

     

    I wish I could ask them if they read about it in the newspapers. 

     

    So many things I wish I could ask them about, now....

     

     

     

    My grandmother said she remembered reading a newspaper article at the time, on the Dalton gang bank raid at Coffeyville, KS

    It might be different in the US, but every back room of a cop shop (police station) in Oz that I've been to they have pig joke paraphernalia everywhere.

     

    Most Aussie cops (at least in NSW) have a cop 'handle' that the other cops use, a lady cop in town many years ago her handle was 'Miss Piggy', she's moved onto somewhere else now but if she's still a copper her handle would still be 'Miss Piggy'. 

     

    I spent 27 years with the Canadian Military Police and I thought it was funny.  We used to wear pig tie tacs and pig lapel pins on our civvy clothes.  We were not offended by the term.  PIG = Pride, Integrity, Guts.

    I just realized my Grandfather, was 8 years old when that happened.

     

    My paternal grandfather was 6 years old at the time.  I was 8 yrs old when the last surviving 7th Cavalry soldier who was at the Little Big Horn Battle died. He was Private Charles Windolph, later Sergeant Windolph.  He was with Reno's command during the battle.

    All of a sudden, I feel old.

    If you were wondering why the first group of Legionares were wearing leather aprons and carrying axes.

     

     Les Pionniers de la Légion étrangère

     

    Les Pionniers de la Légion étrangère. The Pioneers (or Sappers) are a popular, traditional unit of the Foreign Legion. They wear large beards and the traditional Foreign Legion Pioneers uniform, including leather aprons and axes. The pioneers/sappers were very common in the French Army during the Napoleonic Era (1799–1815), but disappeared after 1870, excluding the Pioneers of the Foreign Legion. Several pioneer companies existed within the Legion in North Africa in the 1920s-1940s.

    Today, some regiments of the Foreign Legion keep their own group of pioneers (e.g. 1er REG, 2e REG, DLEM or 3e REI, comprising mostly one NCO and roughly 9 to 15 legionnaires). The 1er RE is the Legion’s only regiment with its own traditional pioneer platoon, composed of at least 3 NCOs and 36 ordinary legionnaires.

    In late April 1931, on Camerone Day, a platoon of Pioneers opened a parade for the very first time in modern history, during the 100th anniversary of the Foreign Legion celebrations. Even nowadays, the parades of the Foreign Legion are opened by this unit. This practice maintains the sappers’ tradition of opening the way, using their axes and shovels to clear enemy obstacles in the past.

    Within the French Army, the Legion remains the only unit keeping the tradition of old-fashioned, bearded pioneers/sappers.

     

    I thought maybe because they worked in the mess hall.
