I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

how I spent my weekend!

… my ENTIRE weekend!! Laying wood floor. Bamboo. Or in my case bamboozled. Winter storm weather didn’t help, neither did the long drive there and back (… and there and back again) in said conditions. Saturday started and ended the same, shovelling snow. Sunday too. Rolled in close to midnight last night, six tonight. My lost weekend. Doing my part to help, that’s me!

random pics. oh yeah, floor’s finished. done!

we got walloped

… and I’m the first to admit this pic does a disservice reflecting said shellacking, but trust me … it WAS BAD … and after plowing through a shit-load of snowbanks in my trusty Chevy 4X4 with the best money can buy Michelin LTX A/T2 rubber firmly planted on all four corners keeping me sure-footed and steady as she goes. Meanwhile, toss in three full blown sweating-my-ass-off-shovelling-sessions while you’re at it for good measure … hopefully in true danistrulythemanunderstanding fashion, y’all graciously exsqueeze me, empathize with me … as I pussy out snapping this pic standing in the cozy comfort and warmth from … INSIDE my house …

what a difference a day makes

… and a couple years!! Back then I’d stack myself up against any other snow shoveler … wished it was Olympic event I was that good … very quick and efficient, working at a brisk walking pace, even running at times. Was a time I’d gladly go out 3 times a day during winter storms keeping our driveway cleared, AND do the neighbour’s as well when they were away to boot. Now, hope I never see the stuff, lol. Guessing we got a good 10 cm … was heavy and dense which didn’t help … all I know is my lungs are burning and I’m winded. In my best Danny Glover/Roger Murtaugh Lethal Weapon impersonation … I’m too old for this shit!!
