I’m tired of vacuuming the van. It has a carpeted floor in the back, and it continually gets dirty. So I bought a 4×8 sheet of hardboard. I painted it with a grey floor paint with anti-skid substance added to it to stop the tools from sliding everywhere. I wonder how long it will last.
I finally broke down and bought a new toolbox last night.
I support global trade, ethical trade, fair trade. I don’t support all industries being farmed out to the lowest tax countries. I bought a side grinder from Princess Auto. It is a light industrial device. Surely we can make these in Canada (or even the U.S. of A.), right? No, it’s made in China.
So I’ve purchased another rental house (house #2). It’s an oldie, like house #1. It was built in 1911 and is pretty much in original shape aside from some add-ons. It’s a tall, wooden, 3 bedroom house with a garage in the back. It even comes with a tenant. More later on the projects site (look for house ‘520’ category on the right).
Remembrance Day is here again. CTV Calgary had broadcast a memorial from the Hanger Flight Museum. It was a very touching presentation.
Today marks my doctor, Dr. H’s last day. He’s moved on to other things. Alberta has become a ‘have not’ province? Some have said that 1 of 5 Lethbridge residents have no doctor. What do they do? They eventually show up at the emergency ward at the hospital. As for me, my ‘issue’ is not resolved <sigh>, and I have no way of resolving it.
Today Alex Trebek has been gone for one year. It seems less than that, like a few months ago. Mom & Floyd would watch Jeopardy together, one of the few TV shows of late they watched together. The producers have cycled through a few ‘guest hosts’ since his death, but no one has replaced him.
