Well, I guess winter is here to stay. Between yesterday and today I'd say there is about 5 to 6 inches of it on the ground now. If that's the case then I've got about a hundred winter projects to get started on. So many indoor things here that I have been putting off for months, while I tried to capture as much daylight and warm temps as possible, during the non-white months. I probably have over 200 pictures that need to be categorized, titled, and in many cases, shrunk so as to fit properly on forums etc. Then there's fishing tackle strewn about everywhere that needs to be put back in it's proper places and over a dozen brand spanking new, Chinese Killer lures in their newly designated boxes. Also there are dozens and dozens of neat little collectible items that need to be photographed and then put up on the web. I like Kijiji for that locally.

There's a lot more to do too but that will keep me going pretty steady for the next couple of days at least. Ya gotta remember I'm pulling a nine to fiver too , eh? ;-)

Speaking of workin', I worked with both Jeff & Mark to-day at Solutions. Mark on a bunch of shelving and Jeff near the end of the day with the garbage run. This new store is starting to take shape and looks like it just might take off. Unfortunately they're advertising with the stupid turn yer knob to slob bob station and probably wasting good money where it could have been better spent on the Bear and/or Chez. Oh well, you know how corporate works, eh, they never listen to us little guys! Also, I took a quick peek at their website and can say so far that it also needs work! Mark may be jumping ship, he's not sure but seems pretty excited. I'll be talking (working) with him again tomorrow so I'll try and remember to get his # before the end of the day so we can keep in touch. Also gotta grab Jeff's too...

Now, on to the FUN stuff! WooHoo! Here's a few new bright little additions to my key-ring. A little more color enters the outdoor world of yours truly. Everything doesn't always have to be camo you know. :-) The slick purple guy in the middle is a kind of multi thingy with wedges and a bottle cap lifter and a nut slot in the middle of it. The plain aluminum dude at the top of the pic is a spy capsule, in a bullet flavor, with a mini, screw caped capsule, stashed inside the O ringed screw in it's end cap. VERY kool. :-) Any of you carry gear like this on your key-ring?

Ho Ho Ho, another 71/2 hours of back breaking labor and finally just getting home now around 9ish. Met Cheryl from and asked her about maybe working there, seeing as they need a few people for their opener the first week in December. Gonna follow up on that too...

Met up with Jeff, Mark and Ian, my work-buds from the People B down at the Henry's Camera Show in the east end and we packed stuff and lifted stuff and loaded trucks until about a quarter to eight. MAN, is my back whining! Oh well, now I'm that much closer to being able to pay the rent next week. Plus, Bill one of the head honchos there,(Kool guy and a bright lad to boot)
treated us to a whack of fancy sandwiches just before he signed our time sheets. Ya gotta like employers like that,eh? :-)

O.K. Here's another picture for you. I just LOVE this sweet little Pentax point & shoot, digital camera. This pic captures a little fall scenery which I grabbed last week while out on tour. It'll all be covered in the white stuff soon enough so feast your eyes on it now while it's still lookin' cool. In case you're wondering, the longspan in the background, is the World Famous Champlain Bridge, between the provinces of Ontario and Quebec...

Later y'all!
Well hey there,

Sunday is starting off sunny and NOT as windy as it's been lately. Glad to see that as I have to walk over a mile in windblown, wide open country that nearly froze this ol' boys' butt off yesterday, heading to the new job site. I'll be leaving home within the hour to head out to the new shopping center to meet up with Jeff Bourgeois, (no, not my brother, however) to work till 4 then head over to the Henry Show to help them pack their tractor trailers etc till when-ever.

I'll drop back in here for a bit, either later to-night or hopefully tomorrow.



P.S. Here's another recent picture taken with my new little digital wonder-worker. It's a shot of some of my specialized Outdoorsy stuff...Hope ya dig it! :-)

Where R we now? Does this shot remind you of a place that you've been to? Somewhere out East maybe? Lake Ontario perhaps? I took it last week in a pretty well known spot if you live in Ottawa. It's taken off the long rocky point that justs out into Britannia bay, facing into the western sunset. Maybe you have been there too, at one time or another? Well, it's still a pretty kool spot to spend a little time at, in my estimation anyway.

Once you are down there, right on the shore of the mighty Ottawa River, you start seeing a whole bunch of neat places to explore and get yourself involved with. Give it a tour if you are not too far away, you won't be disappointed, I think!

Have a grand one...

your blogging bourgeois,

Howdy, O.K. so it's been a while since I've tapped the keyboard in here but that is sort of another indication of just how FAST time flies! :-( Three years IS a long time but let's pick up where we left off, just like nothing happened, alright? O.K. then, here we go...
