A Short Walk, Squirrels and Family Help

By: plapman, 2:41 PM GMT on January 15, 2017

Yesterday was fairly nice. I took Abbey for a short walk to the corner store and picked up milk and bread.
I saw a grey squirrel on the neighbor, across the street, back yard.
The daughter from Brandon came for a visit with her family. One of my grandsons cleaned up my sidewalk beside the house.
The son in law fixed a cover on a fan in the basement washroom.
It sure is nice to have family that will do things to help me.
The snow on the sidew...

A Warming Forecast On the Prairie

By: plapman, 3:08 PM GMT on January 14, 2017

It was so cold yesterday I never got around to blowing snow from the driveway. It's not that bad but the sidewalk beside the house needs some attention.
Abbey stayed home too. -45C(-49F) was just too much.
The forecast says we're in for a break from the frigid cold we've been getting. It will be nice to be able to get out for our morning walk again today.

Extremely Cold On the Northern Edge Again Today

By: plapman, 3:15 PM GMT on January 13, 2017

I have some snow to move today. I'll have to bundle up to do it.
Abbey and me never got out yesterday and we'll probably stay home again today.
The temp. at 9:00 am was: -28C(-19F) with a wind chill of -40C(-40F).
At least it's not snowing and with the SW wind the driveway won't blow in again.
I went in and got more blood work done yesterday. Those doctors are going to have to give me a transfusion soon.
I don't have anymore to add to this....

A Windy Day On the Prairie And Not Much Sucess in Winnipeg

By: plapman, 2:55 PM GMT on January 12, 2017

It's storming again on the prairie. Not much snow but the wind sure is blowing.
It's garbage and recycling day and the neighbors and my recycling plastic bottles are all over the street. I had a box full of cardboard out and I don't know where it is.
I guess me and Abbey will be stuck at home.
My trip to Winnipeg wasn't very fruitful.
The Neurologist said all my tests came back normal. He's putting me on a drug I was on before but at a higher d...
