    Becoming Canadian...

    In December and January we live central Ohio.

    This year I decided to embrace winter like never before.

    I've been splitting wood almost every day, doing projects in our unheated garage, and doing yard work.

    The latter includes garden edging, mulching, and tree and shrub trimming.

    Garage work is maintenance of chainsaws, lawn mowers, and vehicles.

    And just got done building a kayak rack for use on our Aluma motorcycle trailer (sans moto).

    Included in the winter fighting arsenal is an old ski mobile, insulated jumpsuit from the 90's that was purchased for winter riding.

    I also have a old Jones hand warmer, but haven't enlisted its help yet.

    If you really were in Canada you’d be doing mulching over three feet of snow and your un-heated garage would be minus 10 degrees.
    I commend you for not being a couch potato and getting cabin fever.
    I’m envious of you though. Due to shoulder surgery, this has been the worst winter for me. I can’t really do anything outside because of the ice. I spend my days inside reading, watching tv, puttering. PT is a part time job. It killed me to have to ask someone to clear my driveway and sidewalk.
    My snowshoes will not see daylight this year.
    Enjoy being like a Canadian... Eh !!

      I spent many summer weeks as a teenager in Ontario with the Scouts on canoe trips.

      We occasionally had frog legs in addition to abundant Walleye and Northern Pike. Occasionally Bass.

      On one trip my canoe buddy, who was short from polio, caught a Pike that was almost as long as he was tall.

      Breakfast was great with freshly picked blue berries in our pancakes.

      And we always had a slab of bacon on the rind that we cut extra thick.

      I'm getting hungry just writing this.

      That's how we spent every summer here at home.

      I could've predicted this from you Martin....
      Except, there is no Bell Telephone in Vermont or anywhere for that matter since the mid 1980s.

    And like many good Canadians, we are heading for Florida for some vitamin D.

    It's easy to spot the far north migratory vehicles along the way.

    Their vehicles are salt encrusted!

    Kinda like the White Walkers in the GOT.
