It's - 4C and windy as all get out here this morning but I'm not complaining, I can see the grass on my back lawn. Normally there is 3 to 4 feet of snow on it at this time of year and with only 2 chemo treatments to go who can be grumpy!!

Jabez:

Naw, by the time I had recovered, I had met the girl of my dreams, was working for the city with really good promotion prospects, was enrolled in courses that led to a CPPO and an MBA and the parents had come back east, where they had originally come from.

Now, too well vested/nestled in the area, watching over a son who needs help,(Bad birth; lack of O2-Don't get me started) a BIL and a SIL in nursing homes, for whom I act as POA, as well as my Church work.

 

Looking at a bigger more comfortable motor home, She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed* could be comfortable in; if I find one, maybe this summer, because I'd love to come in last at some of your matches.

*SWMBO has had a couple of strokes, is severely diabetic and very unstable on her feet, having fallen and hurt herself a number of times.

More than that I think. I'm grumpy 'cause Jabez hasn't regaled us with his sojourn in the dark continent. (Is that still politically correct?)

Reluctantly Dapper, reluctantly.

Some of the things endured by range operators, trying to deal with ever changing, contradictory, whimsical and expensive "regulations", not found in anything written down, can be discouraging. Have a look at Canadiangunnutz for some of the antics being reported.

 

The saving grace is that we still have a number of high profile people who are shooters and CAS participants to boot!

In fact, I was introduced to SASS by a fellow who was in the PMO's office at the time.

My posse has a regular member who was an MP and who is in the PM race. (No, not Kevin O)

A good man, who I support and call a friend.

It's been snowing off and on all day and I can no longer see my lawn. I've cleaned off the walks and deck twice and it's nearly time to clean them a third time. The dog whined at the door to go out and when I opened it she just looked outside then gave me a look like I was crazy and curled up on her blanket. Dang it all this snow is making me Grumpy!!

​Snow get the heck off my LAWN!!!!!!!!

It's down right nasty outside today.  Snowing with high winds, just like a old time blizzard.  Looks like a whole bunch of shoveling is in tomorrows future.  Now that makes me grumpy.  Oh well I'll go load some ammo for spring that always helps.

SWMBO makes it when she's feeling well. Nice eating. Neighbours little ones often come a'knockin' when they smell the loaves cookin'

Coffee and a couple of slices of buttered banana bread! :)

Kind of glad I'm not a brass monkey this morning.  It's colder that a witches breast here today and forecast to be cold for the next few days then back to the plus temps.
