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 mainly sunny but we'll see increasing cloudiness in the afternoon as the high climbs, to just the freezing point, 0C(32F). Tonight will be mainly cloudy with a 60% chance of flurries in the evening and after midnight. Driving will become hazardous due to a risk of freezing rain late in the evening and after midnight The overnight low will be -2C(28F).
With forecasts like this I don't mind having to sit in the passenger's seat where I can close my eyes, maybe even have a nap, while the Queen has to fight the hazardous road conditions. I remember when I had a license to drive it was always my duty to take the family out for necessities and bring them home safely. Looking at life in the whole even the bad things that happen can have advantages.
Enough with thePlapman's philosophy on life lets get back to the day to day happenings on the prairie.
Yesterday the SIL was back to install the baseboards and door trim. with just a few small finishing touches my washroom will be complete. I'm going to double the toll for other family members to use it. :) The SIL has done an excellent job. With the SIL being a great father, a real handyman and having almost completed his apprenticeship as a diesel mechanic I believe the daughter made an excellent choice when choosing the man to father her children. Yuk the Plapman jut goes on and on.
Yesterday, after the Queen was off to work Abbey took me on our daily walk. She decided to take the downtown route so that I wouldn't be slipping and sliding on the slippery roads. Today I'll take control and take her out on the gopher trails and show her that the furry little critters she loves to chase have probably all gone for their winter siesta. I think they have the right idea. The poor birds choose to fly hundreds of miles south, like many Canadians, while the gophers just snuggle up in their warm burrow and sleep the cold Canadian winter away.
That darn Bill Gates, not only does he only give you rights to use his software and never own it he now wants to control my computer. I had most of my gibberish typed in earlier when he said " I've just installed an update now I'm going to reboot your computer" and everything I'd done was gone. I should charge him for the use of my computer and if he doesn't pay change the update setting so that I decide when an update can be installed. I currently have my updates set on automatic but I may change the setting to just download, inform me that updates are available and I'll decide when it's convenient for me to install them. I always keep all my apps updated as most updates repair errors made by the programmers. My anti-virus and firewall apps check for updates daily. I don't want any previously unknown bugs crawling around inside of my computer.
As for Alley's comment on me forgetting her birthday I din't forget, I thought that she like the Queen didn't want to be reminded of birthdays. I think it's because with the pasing years the little white lie just keeps getting bigger and bigger. :)
LOL And the Queen thinks it's great that she can't get a word inedgewise as I just chatter on and on.
