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. :)

I had unexpected company last night. Mt sister from Medicine Hat Alberta showed up on my doorstep. It sure was nice to see her. Sitting and chatting I broke a record for my bedtime. I'm usually in bed by 9:00pm but last night I was up when the Queen arrived home near midnight. After a goodnight kiss I went to bed but the ladies stayed up and chatted till 2:oo am the Queen told me this morning.
I got the rotary tool box completed yesterday and looking at it I think I went into overkill mode. :) There's allot more places for bits and other accessories than I have but it made good use of an empty toolbox and will be handier than the cardboard box I had stored everything stored in before.
I also got out to the front step and snapped a photo of the girl's playhouse and got Abbey out for her daily walk on the gopher trails. I'd say I had a busy day.
BTW with all that I had going on I never did get a chance to chase young ladies on the street, maybe today!
The next project on my list is to make a combination toothbrush razor holder for my new washroom. I could go and buy one ready made but that would take the fun out of it and I couldn't say I did it.
One of these days I'll tackle an old clock movement I have just to see if I can get it running.
Never give up!
