Keep On Movin

22 Nov

..no, A* did not put the winter tires on, I did…but this was a better photo op. Winter is officially on the way..I can tell by the way our car now has winter tires on…sort of like a self fulfilling prophecy…sorta.

..some late bloomin plants..with a beautiful backdrop of levelled off manure ( where the woodpile we burned was living)

..and with winter on the way that meant the end of camper season..so our friends dropped off their trailer for winter storage and we moved the Boler thanks to our new brake lines on the truck as well as a new trailer hitch..which will probably never be coming off the truck due to rust and having to sledgehammer it in.

..and just for good measure a couple of action shots..we always wear the same work-clothes when we are outside…for those at home who might think we get all this stuff done in one day…A* looks filthy…white is not the best choice for hard labor. A* is doing her ‘tough rock’ impression and I am doing my ‘Bo Duke’ impression…it took 25 shots to get it right..it is really tiring running, jumping and sliding accross a truck hood with heavy boots on.

    I like how Loki’s giving you the “Dad…WTF?” look! BTW, your place is looking really good.

    Ah, yes…winter tire season. It’s now mandatory in QC.

    It was something like +13 in Montreal today. We’re sending it your way.

      hehe..yeah she is constantly doing that..with good reason on most occasions..We were always ‘all-season’ types..but since we went winter tires in the winter we are never driving all-season again..it makes a huge difference.

      thanks for the nice weather..one last gasp before the pain begins..now we are playing the waiting game for the white stuff..I could wait until 2050 if I had to.

        ..AND..for the record when I say things like ‘..no, A* did not put the winter tires on, I did…’ it is NOT to make it seem like A* is not doing hard work..almost 99% of the shots with humans in it has A* in it doing something and I don’t want to make it seem like I am running a slave labour camp and make A* do everything..it is NOT to make it seem like I am doing all the work..at all.

        I just wanted to clarify this due to some individuals thinking that I am making it seem like I am doing all the work…I am not!! I am sure that A* would have posted this little tidbit up here as a comment..but she was being lazy..like usual ( like when I put the tires on).

        Once again that is a joke too.
