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 sunny with a northwest wind at 20 km/h (12 mph). The high will be -15C(5F) but the wind will cause wind chill of -39C(-38.3f) this morning and -28c(-18.4f) this afternoon.
Tonight will remain clear with the wind up to 15 km/h (9 mph). The overnight low will be -23C(-9F) with a wind chill of -32c(-25.6f).
A good day yesterday. The keyboard is back together but doesnt work. The light for the wireless connection comes on but none of the keys work. I'll have to check the connections today. While reassembling it I could see a factory in China, where it was made, assembling all the tiny parts all day. It doesn't sound like a fun job.
The clock is ticking again but still running fast. I may have to cheat and lengthen the pendulum rod a bit. I used to take the works apart clean and re-oil them but I don't want it to quit permanently.
The Winchester is shaped as good as I can get it and a small shim under the front of the barrel will get it pointing horizontally. I may even bend some paperclips to make a lever and trigger guard. I think I'm going overboard for a rifle that will never be aimed at a bunny or deer.
I'll have all afternoon to play with the tiny parts as the Queen is on evening shift and the granddaughter and her 2 little ones won't be home until 3.
The youngest daughter sent me a recipe for brownies. I'll have to get the Queen to take me shopping to pick up some ingredients I don't have and add brownies to the bakery menu.
I hear the Queen stirring just about time to go for the morning coffee and chat.
