    I just want it to match the rest of the tree.

            I actually have two cats that are still considered kittens, and they have put claw marks on $10,000 worth of my daughters medical appliances, yet they are still alive and spoiled. Sometimes it's just the thought that puts a smile on my face.

              • Just got back from my first good snowmobile ride of the year (first one off the property on the local trails). Only did 35km, but it was fun. Sled's running good, lots of snow, it's nice to not hate winter anymore lol.

                • Dan--I lived in my family home near Bancroft one winter when I was out of work in the early 1970's. I bought a used Sno-Jet for $350. That was back in the "Good old days" before you needed trail permits, license, or insurance. My first wife and I must have put 5000 miles on the snowmobile that winter. One bright winter night we were out cruising and couldn't find any of the other folks that you would normally see. We stopped in Lamable to visit an old friend and ask if the bomb had been dropped or what the heck had happened to everybody. Oscar had a big old mercury thermometer on his front porch.--He just pointed at it and said "Are you crazy, or what?". The thermometer was registering 44 degrees below Fahrenheit.

                    I think the coldest I've ever been outside is around -35*c while ice fishing. Couldn't imagine sledding around in that. Even with some whiskey warmth. Maybe next year I'd like to get up that way for some trial riding. Some nice back country up that way.

                    Wish I would have bought a sled years ago. All these years shaking my fist at winter, I could have been out having fun . When I got home the wife told me I should buy a dirt bike this summer too. I think she's up to something.....

                      What are these strange words?
                      snowmobile?
                      sled?
                      snow?

                        Those are devices used by people desperate to convince themselves that there is value to freezing weather and so much snow that you can't (shouldn't) go outside. Or so I've heard.
                        At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.

                        • Trying to get time in the shop today, but it has not worked uo to now.....

                          Spent way too much time working on analysis of a City project requiring "Tax Increment Financing". The Council wants it, and it can't possibly pay for itself, I find. They are in trouble, having loudly promised this for many months.

                          I am now feeling like kissing the 12 extra people out of 1100 who did not vote for me, so my opponent was elected to take this heat.... I am happy to be out of the line of fire..... But next election there will be serious ammunition against them.

                            It's something us northern folk can do to pass the time until it's mosquito season again lol.

                              • Our dog of 16 years died this morning so I had to bury it. It was a tough job in more ways than one. It is 4° F here and dropping. -18° wind chill with 33mph gusts. The ground is frozen and my wife chose a spot at the base of a 2' tree with lots of roots. But, I made a promise to the dog so I was keeping it. I did have to take a couple of breaks to thaw hands and feet out. The pain is really something when the hands start to thaw out. RIP Strawberry.
