================================================= ====================

The missing hamster has been located and is safely back in it's cage. One of the traps the Queen set worked and the pesky little rodent was trapped last evening.
While I was having my morning coffee and cigarette a large flock of geese flew overhead. They spend the night in the Delta Marsh, just on the south end ...

Hamsters, Skies Over the Northern Edge and My Webcam

By: plapman, 3:25 PM GMT on September 27, 2016


There is still no sign of the missing hamster.
The skies over the Northern Edge changed a few years ago.
There used to be small training jets in the air all the time. CFB Southport was the training base for jets and was run by the Canadian Armed Forces.
A few years ago it was changed to the basic training base and is now run by a private company. Most of the planes in the air over the Northern Edge are propeller powered aircraft. Lately while w...

Yesterday, cold windy and rainy, I only got Abbey for a short walk with me dressed in my raincoat.
This morning is cool and windy again but the sun is shining.

Weather Not Favorable for Dog Walking This Morning and Hamsters

By: plapman, 5:11 PM GMT on September 25, 2016


I did an upgrade to Windows 10 last evening and my web cam has quit working. I'm not sure if the old webcam has died or Windows 10 has messed up the driver. There wasn't much of a view from it anyway. The thing is stuck at 6:44pm. If I can't get going I''ll drop it from the blog.

The hamster is still loose. The Queen has set a coupl...
