=================================================
Today will be sunny with the wind becoming southerly at 30 km/h (19 mph) this morning. Today's high will be 17C(63F). UV index 5 or moderate.
Tonight will remian clear with a southeast wind at 30 km/h (19 mph). The low will be 5C(41F).
------------------------------------------------- --
I finally took the movement for the grandmother clock into the garage for cleaning. The darn thing still doesn't work. I guess it's just worn out from abuse by the previous owner. I have another clock that would fit but it's just a 1 day movement with a 7 foot chain. it just wouldn't work unless I hunk it on a wall. oh well the $45v dolar clock has last me 3 years and its just not worth the $400+ to replace the movement. It will just be a piece of furniture I guess.
Abbey and me skipped the walk yesterday as I was working on the clock. We did get a short walk with the Queen to a mailbox so that she could mail a letter.
The youngest away from home daughter got some good.bad news yesterday at the doctors. The 9th grandchild seems to be in good health but once again will be a big baby. She had to sons that were over 10lbs. at birth and it looks like this one will foffow suit. She just about lost the last boy due to his size.
The I'm just listening to instructions from an old commercial about how to use a dial telephone. Today in 1908 the first dial telephone was introduced in Canada. I wonder what the people then would think of the new cell phones that seem to do everything except make a simple phone call.:) I just activated an old cell phone for the Queen that I had purchaced in in 1990. It immeiately picked up the network but the techs at the phone store had a hard time programming it to change the phone number. I don't think any of them were of working age when that cell was introduced. The only thing it does is make phone calls which is all the Queen wanted. We looked and couldn't find a cell that just served that purpose. Comparing it to my Blackberry is like comparing the world war 1 fighter planes that had problems shooting off their own propellers to todays modern fighters that can take out the enemy 2o miles away never seeing the enemy.
The dirty s word s word is in the forecast for Sunday. I though spring had sprung but winter just wont let go.
Looks like it's time to change the light bulb for my web cam I just noticed last night that it was dark on the picture.

Darn this retirement I'm going to miss another long weekend:).
