Only 38. Some morning I feel 50 though.

We are getting snow as I type this west of the city. It snowed most of yesterday though. Nothing sticking yet. It's supposed to be nice next week though. 13-18 degrees and sunny all week.

Not bad not bad, it's been lingering around 20 here for a while now but it's turning into fall pretty quick, leaves are starting to change.

Got some wood to chop...

Oh shit. That has bad memories from my childhood written all over it. We had a wood stove when I was growing up. Twice a year my Dad would wake me up @ 5am on a Saturday/Sunday and we would drive to my Uncles and split enough wood to fill a grain truck, bring it home and stack it for the winter.

hahaha yeah on par with my childhood, would spend a chunk of every summer piling wood in my parents barn as all we had was a wood stove for winters.

We got an oil furnace, heat pump and a wood boiler along with a small wood stove on the main floor. got 5 cord of soft wood and 3 hard, wood won't be our main source but still wanted some for general use and in case the power goes out for any extended amount of time...as it tends to do here.

Put a good chunk in her, just gotta start splitting and piling....woooo....

old skool. no natural gas life haha.

It's not so bad, gives you something to do. I got my dads splitter so you just gotta put the chunk of wood on it and pull a level to have the splitter push through, way better than splitting it all by axe...

oh yeah we're using a chainsaw for blocking it then using the splitter. It's a bit of work but not too bad really.

When you guys come to visit I'll make sure to have my wood ordered so we can do it together ;\)

Lucky! A splitter would have been awesome. I was the axe man while my dad used the chainsaw.

Of course back when I was a teen I don't think splitters were around.

No they shouldn't. It's forced Old Man Boulet to limit himself to 4 beer or 6 rums when drinking.

New Years was rough this year. Drank too much and was feeling not well for almost a week. Old age is the worst.

Moof has been MIA for quite a while....must be busy dumping the bodies of dead homeless people out in the bush. He told me he wanted to clean up the streets but I think he took it too literal.

Yes, finally. It's been a hectic summer. All I have left on my list now is to install some ceiling fans in the bedroom and paint the condo. I recently finished upgrading all the furniture, changing out all wall sconces, upgrading all ceiling fixtures, and just a few days ago I hung new blinds.

Had to work a bunch of OT to buy the furniture. Lol my couch cost more than most cars I've owned

On another note, had a staffing interview yesterday to discuss transferring back to Manitoba next summer. Figure I'll snag a traffic section while the s/o can work the beat in Selkirk or Oakbank.

Never again.

Lol my reaction is the same. I'll never live there; we will most likely end up buying in Stonewall or Bousejour and commute the 20k. Stonewall is at the top of the list for sure.

So why would we go here? WELL...

Winnipeg is 15 minutes away (airport, Costco, IKEA, auto services, etc)
Cheap everything (houses, property tax, insurance, food)
The interlake area is beautiful
25 minutes from Grand Beach where i can help take care of my aging relatives (both over 70)
Unparalleled fishing
Hunting isn't too bad either
Big plots of land (riding mower!)

~Work reasons
Short staffed; unlimited overtime
Better chance of promotion for both of us
Better chance of getting into specific sections (surveillance, Warrant Task Force, relief)
Slower pace; more time for proactive projects
Not having to live in a town we police

In the grand scheme of things, it's a stepping stone on the eventual path to Ottawa.

Today is a great day, I finally got DSL.

7 mbps watch out! But I'm honestly stoked, no more data cap and 80 bucks cheaper a month.

What did you have before?

I just switched from Telus 50 to Shaw 150 as they just dropped their data cap limits, plus have a pretty good price for 2 years

Where I live

To be fair I'm not that far out really, infrastructure on the entire island just sucks and is 10 years behind the rest of the country.

Doesn't feel like it's almost mid December. This year fucking flew by, way too fast, lots of shit went down so that'll do 'er.

Looking forward to the week of Christmas being quiet for work, didn't book any extra time off but just about everyone else on my team did so it'll be a ghost town...aka everyone will be offline and I won't be doing any work.
