As I sit out on my patio in my plush recliner chair with my dog on his padded
bench right beside me as I drink my third double volka and orange, I am content
as my dog barks and growls at other dogs passing by while I think "F--k everyone"
as they walk and drive by. To hell with caring about what others think, or if alcohol
isn't good for a single kidney, it's time I start enjoying myself. It's just the two of us
now and we can do whatever we want.

Please don't be in a hurry Dave. :Don't Go There:
Nope, not in a hurry. Yesterday was the first time in a long time that I was able to just sit outside
enjoying the sunshine basking me as my dog and I watched the world go by and I didn't have any
appointments, visits, chores, or time frame to follow. First time I've had alcohol for a very long time,
and it will likely be another long time before I do again, but it was a very relaxing afternoon.

I can’t believe how warm and wonderful the weather has been the last 3 days. I’m sitting out on my patio three days in a row with temperatures around 10c and not a cloud in the sky...in the middle of January folks, the middle of January for gosh sakes!

Lucky Bum!
The inversion here in Port is keeping the FOG in tight.
Gloomy, chilly, clammy and Fugly.
Don't even want to venture outside under these conditions... :Na-ahh:

Carry On Lucky One! :Oh Yeah!:

Cheers,

Enjoy life Dave, it is really all we are born with and all we can’t take with us when we go. The part in the middle should be mostly enjoyed.

Riding a snowmobile into the wind at 50 or 60 km/ph just plain hurts! LOL
I once rode my motorcycle down the highway to a local garage in below freezing temperature.
I was in a hurry so I jumped aboard without a helmet (wasn't illegal at the time) and raced along
at 60+ mph. By the time I had to slow down and pull into the station my exposed head was so
cold that although my brain was saying slow down, the signals weren't reaching my body and
I sailed right past. When I finally was able to stop I was a 1/4 mile past the garage. One of those
'well, won't do that again' moments.

Go ahead - rub it in while you can.... :Black Eye:

We are in the middle of a dump of snow and the temp is -11 without the windchill of that 20 km/hr "breeze" :hopelessness:

There's already 5 inches on the back porch and it's still coming down with authority. :Doh!:

We're due for much the same kind of storm Steve. It's due to hit late Sunday afternoon and go into Monday.

20 cm of snow then it turns to ice pellets, sleet, and eventually rain...... which, of course will freeze solid within a few hours or so.... :Black Eye:

Well, It was fun while it lasted...especially the teasing. My sunshine ran away and in it's place
came about 8-10 cms of wet snow. Had to tarp over my patio chair and shovel off the truck
and driveway for the fourth time since returning from Mesa.

Rain this am, cleared by noon, beautiful day to sit on the deck with a coffee and contemplate the trials and tribulations of being me.

Oh Dave you are so right, sometime I just shut off the computer of the mind and just take in the scene before me.

I had a similar incident, only it was a large old boar. I've related it before. It's still very vivid to me
after about 10-15 years. I was sneaking, one step at a time, up a narrow grassed over skidder trail
that was winding up through an old logging slash. On a sharp turn that big old boar and I came
around the bush overhanging the trail at the same time. He was close enough I could have poked
him with the end of my compound bow I had loaded and in front of me. Both of us didn't move even a
hair for quite a few seconds before he decided to leave in a bit of a hurry. As you say, it's surprising
how still you can be if necessary.

And how many undies have you 2 thrown away after being at kissing distance?
Steve
Surprisingly I wasn't that stressed during that incident. I've had situations when other animals
far less potentially lethal come right up to me without them knowing I was there and it was more
exciting. Exciting enough that I thought they surely must be able to hear my pounding heart.
About the only time I can say I was truly scared was when caught out in the open by raging and
angry range bulls.

Looked outside when I got up, after sleeping off my nightshift, to a beautiful sunny day. Sunshine reflecting off all the fresh white snow, went outside to round up some wood for the firebox the discover a 30K wind...ruined my whole outlook on the day.

When I lived in Pineview we had 21 acres it was only about 100 yds wide no trees and ran basically from Bendixon to Pingrove off Cummings. The wind would whip out of the north and literally bury the back of our
barn

I bet you miss those days?? One winter it drifted so bad at our place it took them 10 hours to dig the road out with a big 980 loader....and then I had to dig out my tractor and spent hours and hours digging out the driveway. I hope to never see that again.

I was working for Clark at the time and scrounged 2 boxes of seedlings. I planted a wing break but sold out before they grew to any serviceable size. Like to see if they ever turned into their supposed purpose.
