Merry Christmas Castanutters!


We're just really glad you'll be able to! How soon before you're cleared?
I haven't failed until I quit.

If you're not working, who can we blame about the way the snow is plowed? Get back on your feet soon, we need a fall guy. Enjoy your Christmas without being out all night trying to keep us safe on the roads.

I’m not sure, my case worker took off on a vacation until sometime in January. I’m making great gains with my physio. Much to Mrs. Trees chagrin I have even been using an axe to split kindling.

Thanks! I get a good laugh over people complaining about snow removal. When you work in it and see what it takes to clear the streets during and after a snow event you appreciate just how good they actually are. Plus it’s winter in Canada, why is it such a surprise?

I will be enjoying Christmas with my family that is coming up from the Island. After a bit of visiting I might be wishing I was back bouncing around the cab of a snow plow. LOL

Ducks are funny birds - I had to blow up the photo to actually see it flying there. They'll nest outside office buildings in the bushes and then teach their ducklings how to use the crosswalks. I saw one fly down the street in the proper lane.

I`ve had Ducks pace me at over 60-70 k while in my semi
Just flying along off my Starboard bow.

Throttle up a bit, they flap a little harder, they do shoulder check.
Do they have shoulders É Hmmmm...

Darn ÉÉÉÉÉÉ keeps happening in the stead of a question mark éééééÉÉÉÉÉÉ

French keyboard - ctrl shift will get rid of it. (I get this all the time)
