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. :)

Are we ever getting spoiled.Yesterday with no air everyone was complaining. Luckily my basement is finished and the Queen and I sleep there. I remember as a kid living in a 2 story house with no air my bedroom was on the upper floor. Yesterday's heat in the house was nothing compared to that.
After reading YLee's comment I checked the weather near him. the 40c(104f) temps would kill me. I guess like we on the northern edge get used to the cold winters the people in warmer climes get used to the heat. I can't imagine what it would be like along the GOM with the high humidity and temps like that.
Yesterday after working trying to fix my ccomputer I finally got it working. Luckily I had a restore point only a week old and using it fixed my problems. I was just about ready to restore it to the original factory settings.
yesterday on our walk Abbey and me rescued a pom type dog. The little black dog started following us then started barking at Abbey and Abbey went into protective mode. If I had\n't of told Abbey to wait she would have given that little dog the shake and broke it's neck. I tried to catch the little guy to bring home and wait for a lost dog and to return him but he kept one step ahead of me and returned home where his owner met us at the door. It was sure a good ending where he could have been taken to the pound and put down or stolden.
