Canada Day!

It was a quiet Canada Day for myself so far.  After finishing a night shift,  I slept until 2:30 pm.  I was brule.  Or burned out,  after working 4 nights.  My neighbor then came over to show me his cub cadet.  I am the kind of person who does not like to use the neighbors stuff,  but he was so persistent over several months of  'try it',  I decided to go for a drive.  My lawn was getting a little long anyways...

My first reaction was the incredible smoothness of the machine.  The thing that really gets me the most about these machines,  was the turning radius.  My dads machine has a poor turning circle,  and you have to drive his in big turns to cut what is left from going straight after awhile.  His machine had a great turning radius,  and I was done probably 10 to 15 minutes faster after using it for a half hour of cutting.  It can cut in reverse as well,  a function my old dads lawn tractor never had in the 90s.  Albiet, my dads lawn tractor is 15 or so years old and looks like new.  This cub cadet is new,  and should last twice as long.  But,  for now I chose the exercise, as I strongly need it.  I will be pushing the push lawnmower for a little more time yet... 

No news on the book yet,  as it is having an uneventful boring start..  Till then...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
