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 be cloudy with a 30% chance of showers this morning. The high will be 8C(46F).
Tonight will start cloudy but becoming partly cloudy late this evening. The overnight low will be -4C(24F).
A fairly quiet day on the prairie. The Queen was really impressed with the fix to the toilet. She says it's like new.
I had to fix my desk lamp holder again yesterday as the repairs to the plastic one let go. This one will outlast me. I made it from a 1/2 inch cast flange and a short peice of 1/2 inch steel pipe with a piece of nylon tubing filling the gap between the lamp base and the 1/2 inch pipe. I'm sure I could lift the desk with it. I'll get a photo when I clean off my desk a bit and post it later. While I'm in the photo mood I'll also show the details of the magnetic toothbrush, razor and shaving brush holders. My brain may be broken but the ideas just keep popping up.I guess the creative ideas are a necessity or I'll be in a leash and harness attached to the kitchen sink. :)
So far most of the materials used to make the projects have come from my stockpile of I can't throw that away stuff because I might need it someday I have hidden away from the Queen who refers to it as junk.
The Queen was home last night and roasted a chicken which was accompanied by stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravey and a salad. I can't let her quit work as in no time I'll won't fit through the doors.
