Lazy Posting

A lot has been going on...  We bought a new house and get possession of it Thursday of this week actually.  It is very close to where we live - and it just seemed like a good place to get into and such.  We are outgrowing our current place, we were up and down about building on the farm, the location and neighbours are great...  So - ya.  Maybe by August of so we'll officially make a move.  There are a few things to church up with the place....  It is called The CoachHouse.  I am sure it'll be more than suitable.

School is winding down and that is good.  It just seems like a good time to end this year, have a break...  I am sure the kids are sick and tired of me - and it goes both ways from time to time.  So a welcomed break is deserved by all.  One more year to work..  Then another full year off.  I will be quite a bit happier writing one year from now.

I have been out on the bike.  Not too much, but I hit a big Saugeen region, Grey, Bruce county trial ride with 20 others the other day.  It was fun.  I definitely had the biggest bike - and that isn't bragging.  I would have been much happier on something much smaller.  However I crossed some deep water, hit lots of railroad tracks, dirt roads, and the like and didn't even dump it once...  Almost.  I skidded left and right a few times.  But I stayed on.  I watched a few people wipe out - the were alright.  A few broken foot pegs and mirrors for some - but I stayed clean.  I got home and started looking for a used Husq 400 or a DRZ 400 or something like that - That would have been ideal.  At any rate - it was lots of fun.
Shelly, Molly and I made this little baby gift for my step-brother and his wife's new baby.  They had a boy and he'll be known as Hank apparently - so this is the creation...  It isn't exactly original.  I have seen things like this on the world wide web and such... So this is our adaptation of a bit of a growth chart.  Craig can hang it up, or use it as firewood to heat his house!  I used stencils, of course, and cedar.  I have lots and lots of cedar out at the farm.

We all have flights booked to go out to Rossland, BC this July.  That will be fun.  We booked them a month or two ago.  There was some talk about flying to Calgary, renting a car and touring around for 3 or 4 days while getting those extra 700km in to Trevor's.  But that idea was more romance, than practical.  It wasn't going to happen.  So we opted for the Castlegar, BC airport which is only about 40 km from the ultimate destination.  It will look quite a bit different than it did in the winter of 2011 - and will be warmer.  See you soon Tara, Trevor and the boyz.

I hit Joel's 40th birthday this month - I am sure he doesn't mind me posting that.  It was quite fun.

I will hit up Drew's 40th on the weekend - No stopping age folks.

Had a great time this month hanging with Liesa and Kathy after work and before the 8th grade graduation - there might be some pictures floating around somewhere of our fun.

Molly is great:

 Shelly is fantastic too:
I'm a lucky man!
