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. :)

There was no work done on the basement washroom as the son-in-law enjoyed a day with his family. However he did come and pick up the trailer to take the scrape to the dump.
The grandson picked one of my many bicycles and asked if he could have it. I gladly gave it to him as as Ive been looking to clear my garage of them. Before my stroke I'd walk past the scap metal yard in town and find frames, wheels and other parts then scavage them. I'd then repair them with parts from other parts savaged. it was a good pastime straighting wheels, and makeing adjustments to brakes and derailuers. Any parts I had left over went back to the scap metal yard. So far I've given 4 working bicyles away but still have 15 repaired bicycles left in my garage. 1 I've claimed 1 as mine and will try it when the Quen gives me permission.
The Queen came home from work last night and was really upset. Someone had stolden the buterfly from one of her solar powerd buterflies and all thats left is the light and rod in the ground. Abbey, the automatic doorbell, went off last night and we went out to check. After dark Abbey looks to the front yard through the gate and does a tour of the backyard then comes back if it's all clear. So far it's been clear, except for one time when a salesman knocked at the door, but if an intruder was there I'm sure the barking and growling would drive them away as it did the salesman until I brought her in.I'm sure if they stayed the most harm she'd do is hit them on the leg with her wagging tail. The butterfly must have been a grab and run situation as no one was seen on Abbey's check. When I was a member of Citizens on Patrol yard ornaments were a popular target for bored kids and we must have stopped many thefts just by showing a presents in the area.just as a police car on the highway slows traffic to the speed limit.
My webcam seems to have gone down at 2:49. I guess the next project is to find out why. Bill did an update last night that requiered an automatic restart and probably shut it down in the prrocess.
