How was your walk?

Hope you din't get caught up in the windstorm that took the power out here.

2 days later and still brushing up leaves, tree branches, the occasional elk and a igloo...

Will try and get a pic sometime but for the past 3 nights on my way home there has been a beautiful Doe standing by the side of the highway. Guess she's come down out of the hills for food.

She's about 2k's out of Lavington, on the Eastbound carriageway of HW6. About 1K after to 80K/m marker before the run up to Tolko.

So here goes in the next episode.

Life is pretty good, still loads of reno's to do on the house.

Been down in the crawlspace today to get the Christmas decorations out. Found a leak down there from the washroom. Still learning the lingo as asking for PTFE tape and rubber sealant was met with a complete blank stare from the guy at the hardware store. What followed would be something out of a comedy sketch...

The kids are still a huge hit here. They are still a talking point when we go for a walk.

Anyway, morning to you all,

And you moved to "Lumpy" ? Why? Oopsie I mean Lumby. hehehe

Sounds lovely, really. Sounds like you're having a great time.

I was in Alaska this summer. Some really remote little towns up there. You could walk naked :boobs :moon in the woods and not see anyone all day. :lol: :mrgreen:
Oh and my application to become a RCMP Volunteer for the village we live in has been accepted.
I've always been attracted to men in uniforms. Can I see your gun?

Oh dear, I'm making your nice postings NSFW. :lol: :twisted:

ill show you my gun, if you show me your target.
Actually that is a misconception here. Whilst guns are more prevelant than they are in the UK there are much tighter regulations regarding possession and use.

They have to be carried in a lock box, unloaded, with the ammo in a separate locked box.

Now the shotgun we keep at home to scare off the bears, that's a different thing ......


So which question havn't I answered?

So the next, not exciting episode....

Life here is freakin' awesome as they say around here.

Best thing we ever did. Yes there have been some tough times, however the quality of life is far higher. Mind you so is the cost of living :!:

Can of beer in UK 0.89GBP. Here for a stubbie its 2.00CAD$ :drink :drink

For those that are still reading here goes......

Remember that part time job I took at 7-Eleven?

Well I've now passed all my accreditations and Certifications so I'm now qualified to run my own Gas station. Doesn't sound much but doing it in a year, it's the quickest it's been done in the province.The down side is that I can't apply for my own station untill I have 2 years experience in the industry in Canada.

So what the heck, it'll be time to get more knowledge under my belt. It's not like I'm in any rush. Plus at the moment I'm on an hourly rate, so the overtime is Keeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrching

Mrs Mav is also doing well. Averaging about 90% on her school work. Her part time job has become interesting as the store manager has intimated that she will be stepping down and wants to know further details of Mrs Mav's work visa....

On a personal level. Really sorry that our original neighbors on one side moved out, however pleased for them as they were renting and have now bought a property through a land inheritance. So conflicting feelings there.

Snow is now coming down. We've been lucky that up untill now there's only been a light dusting, however it has come down in force over the past couple of days, to the point where after shovelling the drive, 2 hours later you couldn't tell i'd done it
