Good dark and early morning from clearing Kingston, Ontario. It's 9C now, and should rise to a sunny 21C later. This Victoria Day was quiet. Today will be the first of my last three radiation sessions. The radiation is invisible and nothing is felt. It's the water consumption that is the issue. Well, that'll be over soon. On this date eight years ago the "Easy Riders" members of the Kingston Velo Club's "Smell the Lilacs" ride cruised the countryside around Camden East, Ontario.
Have a great day! (Have a self-propelled cruise!)
Goiod morning from sunny Sweden
Good afternoon / evening from beautiful west-central MB. ..... 22 C. now; can't specifically remember the last time we had it as warm.... maybe Sept. last fall?? And as it turns out it was productive as well as beautiful.
Got some stuff [branches, leaky water tank, last year's corn stalks] hauled to the dump, and was able to make off with a couple of 4' 2X4s, 8 feet of 1/8"X1/8" 1/8 wall tubing, and 4' of broken fence post* from the ditch on the way.
I'd been unable to get ahold of either of the two guys that we've had do our rototilling, so as I was heading out I noticed a guy with a tractor mounted roto-tiller on a trailer; I followed him down a back lane and when he parked [only about 8 houses from us as it turns out], I asked If he was looking for another customer. He wasn't, but said he'd come over and do it when I got back from the dump. He came right over, and after a quick "this is the electric clutch; this is the hydrostatic forward/reverse" he sat on the deck and shot the breeze with my wife while I ran it.... and when the dust had settled he said that I'd done well enough that he'd let me operate a 1/2 million $ combine or tractor, if he was still farming.
* = a win-win, "civic duty" AND some campfire wood.
