Another Challenge on the Prairie

By: plapman , 1:21 PM GMT on March 25, 2012


Today will start cloudy then clearing this afternoon. The high will be 0C(32F).
Tonight will be clear with the wind becoming southeast at 20 km/h (12 mph) before morning. The overnight low will be -7C(19F).
Yesterday Abbey and me went on the downtown route. Has that dog ever have a good memory. When we approach the railway tracks she looks west along a road we used to take that he railway uses to access a switch on the main line that switches the train to a another destination off of the mainline. We used to take that route along the tracks as it was excellent gopher hunting grounds with open spaces along the railway right of way that were always kept cut short. I guess she remembers the hunts she had along there. Since my stroke the Queen has advised me not to take that route any more as I has to cross the tracks on the way home at a spot that isn't a crossing. I know that if I ddon't heed the Queen's advisories I'll be in big trouble. :)
After discarding the small pendulum movement and took an old watch that hasn't worked in years apart and have it running. Somewhere in it's history it seems to have lost the minute hand. It's not of much use but it was the challenge that had me work on it.

Good morning Tony, late getting on this morning. Been chatting on Yahoo IM with my sister in TX for the past couple of hours. Sure is a great way to chat with someone and its free hence the long time we spend talking.

Rainy weather for us today with temps in the 60s. Sure glad I got that grass cut. Anyway have a great day..time to start making something to eat. Still have not had any breakfast yet so Brunch it will be.

Have a great day.

Good morning, Tony! Critters know what they like, and if they see you or hear you doing something that they link to what they like, they get all excited! I don't have to say a word to call a cat, all I have to do is turn the can opener on, and they come running! I do have to give them a treat though, lol!

Have a good day!
