Retired and loving it. If I'd have known about retirement befor I started my 40 year career with the government of Manitoba I'd have retired first. :)

Today will start sunny then becoming a mix of sun and cloud this afternoon with a high near 21C(70F).
Tonight will bring cloudy periods and an overnight low of 9C(48F).
The sendoff BBQ went well. There was lot's to eat and great company. The neighbors dog even stopped by but Karma, the Bull mastiff, took exception and tried to maul it. The melee was quickly broken up before any damage was done and Fox was taken home unhurt except for feelings. Karma then decided to play rough with Abby but Abby soon showed her whose territory she was on and put Karma in her place. I've never heard Abby growl like that before.
