……on what’s been happening in my head. Short answer: not much. Nothing of any importance anyway.
Caught a fish Monday. About seven pounds….maybe six. Ling cod. That was good. I think that makes it the third fish I have ever caught in my life that didn’t have a middleman (fishing guide) in the middle of it all. This was just me, the primal guy, with the junk gear fishing for dinner. Aaaargh! Well, OK, primal guy and his wife. Aaaargh.
We’re looking for some Woofers – Willing Workers on Organic Farms. They are usually young people traveling the world on a small budget and they swap a few hours labour for a place to kip down and scarf down some meals. Every Woofer we have had was great except for two and they were fine. NOT great but OK. That’s a ratio of about ten to one. It’s always interesting, often fun.
…..seems the W’fers are getting a bit flaky these days. They say they are coming and then, a day later, say they are not. That’s fine. I guess. But it makes it seem a bit flaky to me. I have no idea why this is happening but it is not peculiar to us. Oh, well……..some will come. They will be fine. Life is good.
The boat is great. The boat is GREAT! Been using it for about two months and love it!
Trump? Just makes me gag right now. “Canadians are spoiled.” THIS insult coming from Donald Trump! Unbelievable.
Alberta and BC and Kinder Morgan and Trudeau…? Makes me gag all over again. Too stupid. TOO STUPID FOR WORDS!!!! Jason Kenney (no rocket scientist himself) says flat out that Trudeau has the political depth of a finger bowl. No attention span. Can’t read a memo longer than a cocktail napkin. And, if the TransMountain pipeline fiasco is anything to go by, he is understating the case. I love Horgan for doing what he said he would do and I hate Notley for being a bully-bitch but the problem and the solution has been evident for years and look at this crew……pathetic.
How do these people get our votes?
But, it’s summertime and the pols will now go play at the beach. They feel they have earned their pay. Time to BBQ and have fun. Frankly, the country would be better off if they just stayed at the cottage year ’round and left us all the hell alone. It is hard to even get me riled when they are so bad.
Grandson doing good.
Sal quilting like a maniac.
Book delayed by an Amazon screw up. Couple more weeks….
Here’s something that might surprise you….I think I should pay more – for my ferry service. For years BCF has charged too much. They still do for the Gulf crossings and they used to for our short, ten minute run from little island to BIG island. With car, we paid about $30.00. Steep. Especially considering the boat was built in the 60’s (1860’s it seems), is rusted like a third world disaster waiting to happen and is always full. Still…my gut-price said $25.00 was OK so the extra five bucks was no biggie. THEN they gave us seniors discounts and that was good. Got it down to $22.00 or thereabouts and that was a ‘good’ deal in my gutsl. NO complaints.
Then the NDP improved that. I now pay just under $15.00. Sal and I and our car….$15.00 on non-weekends and that includes TO and FROM the little island. $7.50 one way. I cannot buy a burger for that. It’s TOOOOOooooooooo cheap. Who woulda thunk it? I think I should pay more. I really do. There isn’t a hope in hell of getting a new, safe ferry at that ticket price. There isn’t a hope in hell they can operate in the black at that price. At that price….we are gonna sink!!
And I am a pinko. I want everything for free. I am a leach on the taxpayer (in spirit) and even I think this is too cheap.
I am thinking of putting up a collection can at the ticket office for donations to pay for a new boat. I wonder how that would go over?
Anyway…you can see where this blog going…nowhere. Dave has no issues right now. Dave is laid back. Calm. No axes to grind, no crosses to bear, no burrs under my saddle, no worries, mate.
Hmmmm…that worries me…..
