Winter Woolys

It doesn’t seem to matter when it comes to Mother Nature, she’ll always find a way to screw with my life. Two weeks ago she sent the first blizzard of the year which made me purchase a snowblower. I purchased the piece of equipment online and since it was just before Christmas and there had just been a […]

Good For Now

I am not a rich man and I have never claimed to be. Yes I have a few articles that are valuable, but all tolled they amount to a small pile of squat. I have never purchased a new vehicle or bought a new house. I am more than happy to be surrounded by things […]

12 Days Of Mayhem

December 2013   Working in retail at Christmas sucks. That is the mantra that retail employees live by at this time of year. These are good hard working people that don’t deserve the abuse that is heaped onto them at this time of year. Shoppers crowd the stores to the point there is no room […]

What Do You Mean Winter Hasn't Started Yet!!

The first official day of winter is Dec 21st. I’m not sure whose world that one came from but it wasn’t someone from the Canadian prairies. Winter usually arrives here in late October, early November and when March 21st the first day of spring arrives… WE STILL HAVE WINTER!!! I hate winter!!!   Mother Nature […]

Handle With Care Too

When Elyza was born the majority of people I deal with on a daily basis had no idea of her existence. Bull and Tattoo live a thousand miles away and I’m not the type of person to just walk up to people and tell them I’m a grandfather. Parker is a different matter though, he […]

Simon Says... Take One Giant Step Backwards

Well it’s been a week since my southern neighbours elected Donald Trump as their next president and lo and behold… the world has not ended. It could be simply that they have not yet given him the nuclear codes or it could be that we were making much to do about nothing.   I think […]

Generations

Millennial’s, Gen Xer’s, the lost generation, baby boomers and war/dirty 30’s children, these generations represent the living factions of our world’s population. We all fit into one of these buckets except maybe the few people who are topping the centennial mark in age but I doubt they will reads this. Where do you lie?   […]

You Always Need a Guy

,

Busy or lazy or a combination of both. That’s what I’ve been, so you’re getting re-treads but it’s better than nothing right? It doesn’t match the weather here currently, frost is starting to appear in the morning and my A/C is under wraps for the year but this piece made me chuckle and I hope […]

Little Butler

My one and only sibling turned 60 yesterday. If you’re 20 then you may be seeing this as some monumental milestone but when you’re staring at it up close like I am, you realize it’s no big deal. With our parents now gone we have become the Next Generation, the next ones to die. But […]

The Very First Time

The expansion of GenCo is complete and they have changed the company letterhead to read GenCo & Son. Yes there is a name to the “& Son”, and it is Parker. He arrived last week, much to the relief of Company, and has all the right parts in all the right places. He got to […]
