Fingers Crossed

Thanks to my buddy Andrew (aka the Shed Monkey) we're fixed up now. Hopefully it'll hold through the winter then we can fix it properly.

Just have to tape the bottom edge of the plastic patch then it'll be good to go! *fingers crossed*

Not much else to report. Just waiting on results of MRI. Standby.....

I knew it was a lil' breezy today but.....

I certainly didn't expect a failure like this!

Funny thing is it's not really blowing all that hard today. This shed has stood up to 70+ MPH gusts and sustained winds of 40-50 MPH. I guess 2 yrs is about the limit for this shrink wrap plastic that gets lots of sun shine. I'm guessing the UV eventually breaks it down. The other side that doesn't get any direct sunlight is fine.

Time to call my buddy Andrew to the rescue!

Catching up a lil' bit

It's been awhile since I put anything on here so I thought I'd just bring you up to speed on what's happening.

Not much actually! :-) Thursday was my last official day as a public servant. So I'm now technically unemployed. Lori and I went into Ottawa on Thurs to complete my out routine and hand in my ID credentials. That's the last official act I guess. The pay cheques will stop and that's a lil' disconcerting until the pension cheques come in which can take 6 weeks.

We saw ZZ Top at the National Arts Center on Thurs night which was fantastic. They're one of the bands I never got to see back in the day. What a great act and the sound that comes from just two guitars and a drum kit is amazing. You can tell they're polished, they should be after 40 yrs together but you can also tell they truly love what they're doing. I'd see them again in a heartbeat if I could.

Yesterday we went back into the office to say fairwell to one of my colleagues. Sylvia was the very life and breath of our office. She's the lady who made sure everyone always got a birthday card and decorated the office for every occasion. I heard she had 27 boxes of decorations to get rid of when she cleaned out her office! :-) Everyone loved Sylvia and she'll definitely be missed there much more than I ever would. I wish her well and am just a little sad to thing I might never see her again. :-(

That's about it. Soon time to hibernate.
