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 high of 0C(32F).
Tonight will remain clear with an overnight low of -14C(6F).
I finally finished the Winchester.
My 4 inch long Winchester.
LOL the picture's bigger than the rifle.
After nearly a week working on the rifle for the settlers to have fresh meat and 3 attempts that were discarded I'm finally happy with the way it looks. I showed the Queen my handiwork and told her I was going to take it to my doctor and tell him to write the letter that would get my driver's licence back. She said he'd never believe I did it. My vision problem is peripheral where I can't see my left hand until it's directly in front of me. The carving of the little gun was all done by holding the thing on my right side and whittling away with the dermal. I think my next project will be a small sledge hammer made from a piece of aluminum rod have in the hoard and after that a tiny pick to go with the spade I've already made. I will not let this visual thing beat me and will continue to challenge it.
Yesterday I got Abbey out for a walk on the gopher trails but again she found nothing to chase.
On our way home we met a lady walking her Jack Russel Terrier and stop for a chat and a and sniff for the dogs. She said Abbey must really enjoy her walks and that she sees us nearly every day. I told her our route ,long the gopher trails, and said that I unleash Abbey and let her run free for about a mile and a half. She asked if she came back when called as her little dog would be gone. On that note I had to show off by favorite trick with Abbey where I take her leash off, hold open a loop in the choker and tell her to put her head in which she does. The lady said "What a smart dog". Whoever left Abbey in the pound to be euthanized sure lost a great dog! Gosh I brag about Abbey alot. Her and me are bonded with epoxy. :)
