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. :)

The hideabed move went unexpectedly well for both my nieghbor and me. He brought his 20 year old son over to help him and my granddaughter had her boyfriend over for a visit. the 2 young fellows carried the thing up the stairs and out to the curb while me and the nieghbor directed them on the best way to do it. When it was safely on the curb for garbage pickup I commented "Thats what young fellows are made for."
I later fried up the BBQ and did some steaks for the granddaughter, boyfriend and the Queen and me.
Today I start purging my body for the flashlite and camera thing tommorrow. I hope thier camera is smaller than my old Sony video camera. I guess I won't make the blog tomorrow as the prcedure is supposed to start at 8am.
The surgeon recommended I stay very close to a washroom after taking the laxitives so I guess me and Abbey will be grounded today.
Yesterday I stopped, with Abbey, at a nieghbor's a few doors down from me and showed off her talents. HHis wife has one of those small yappy dogs and won't put a coller or choke chain on it saying it might hurt it's neck. The neighbor commented that Abbey had both on her. I use the choke chain because its easy to take off and put on. I took the coker off and Abbey stayed at my side. The nieghbor said if he did that the little dog of his would be off and running. When it was time to leave I held up the choker and told Abbey to put her head in it. Like I've trained her to do she puts her nose in the loop and I pull the rest around her neck. He was amazed at how smart and obediant she is.
Abbey and me have spent alot of time together training her and she picks up new orders quickly.
