No, I'm not on vacation...
but I did get to wade in inches of water a couple weeks ago.
Straight off my bed as my feet hit the floor !!!
Consider mild temperatures last November, quick snow melt and excessive rain, along with living in a "renovated" basement apartment of a half century old building, all of which adds up to a recipe for disaster. A perfect storm of epic proportions, uh... not so much... more like, at a minor scale, thank God... but none the less, left me running around in my underwear, frantically trying to gain control of the situation.
I give justified praise to my spin mop, for obvious reasons, and the not so subtle hills and valleys of the original floor, hiding under the new "pretend slate" vinyl. Despite the fact that everything is on one level, the kitchen and a few room corners remained dry, will the rest of the apartment was drenched in melted snirt, a couple inches deep in most of the bedrooms, living room, and bathroom. I had started packing for the move, and my daughter's room still had boxes on the floor, that hadn't made it out to her new life yet. Cardboard does love water... damn it! But I could breathe a sigh of relief as I noticed that the high spots on the floor saved a few items from soaking in the lovely moat, that appeared in my home overnight.
I was able to save most it, and didn't forget to count my blessings... like the fact that I have a non-leaking roof over my head, and a septic system that is not backing up every couple years. Been there, done that.... Moving on.
Speaking of snirt... here's a pic I took a few weeks ago at the mall parking lot.
Canadian Snirt Mountain ~ Ain't it lovely !!
I'm happy to say, the apartment is still dry, and most of the snirt is gone bye now. I actually see a few strands of green, way way over there, across the apartment parking lot. About time!
I know, I know... A lot of you have leaves in your trees :/
So? How many times have you mowed so far? :P ;-)

Seems there's a few petitions going around that could potentially impact Canada's Gun Laws. Most likely wishful thinking with Trudeau a the helm, but hopefully a step in the right direction.... Read below and click on the link to Sign the petition.
Legal concealed carry permits in Canada.
The terrorists in Paris reloaded their weapons, over and over, and not one person fired back. They have no right to keep and bear arms in France. No law abiding citizen was able to step up to stop the violence. The same attack could happen here in Canada. Law abiding citizens are barred from carrying a firearm in Canada. Therefore, in light of the above, I call on Justin Trudeau to issue an executive order defining the meaning of justifiable need adding self defense as a justifiable need to carry a firearm. The simple action by Justin Trudeau of defining self defense as "justifiable need" will allow the citizens of Canada the ability to defend themselves and their families, as well as those around them, from any type of deadly attack.
Sign the Petition 665 names short to reach the number of supporters needed
for the petition to be sent in.
Thank you !

Just playin' ;-)
Btw, that last pic is off a t-shirt @ the duty free shop. Stopped in last week as I drove through the border. You know, your border officers can be a pain sometimes, took a whole lotta convincing for them to believe me that I was going back to Canada (sometime)...

In light of Ray's recent comment, I got a craving to watch a certain video again... I wanted to re-post it in case some of you have never seen it, but it seems the embedding is disabled on YT for this video... WTF?
Plan B: Click HERE to view it from my 2013 post... ;-)

Snatched this one from Odie ;-)
CURRENCY NEWS FROM CANADA
The Royal Canadian Mint has just announced they are going to remove
the polar bear from the $2 coin in view of its demise due to global warming.
At the height of political correctness, they will replace it with 2 gay deer.
The coin will now be called “2 fuckin’ bucks"!
