Trampoline 1, James 0

Well, my son James took the brunt of it this past weekend. A seemingly innocent romp on a trampoline cost him a concussion, broken teeth, a gashed open chin and a cracked jawbone for added measure. As a reward he gets to be fed with a tube for the next 2 weeks...NCA (No Chewing Allowed). I guess it's a little late for any "keep your knee away from your chin" advice. The four hours waiting in the emergency unit at the Truro hospital were not exactly uplifting, especially when retired hockey goon Bob Probert (in town for a celebrity golf event) blew in, and managed to jump the queue and get a "special" prescription...that's ok Bob we only got a broken jaw, we can wait. You're painkillers/prozac are much more important...do I sound bitter? :)

Let this be a loving and public salute to the love of my life...my wife !!!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY !!!

I decided to pick up a new level, since my old 48" plastic one did not survive a plant from my size 10 sneaker (don't ask) and has been transformed to the 3 piece variety. I decided to splurge and get the PowerFist 78" aluminum saber of a level at $29.99... When I got to the cashier, she muttered something about it being recently on sale, and without a single word from me, proceeded to charge me $14.44 !!! Let's hear it for...

Operation "Johnny Paycheck"

As I plan on exiting my current employment situation somewhere around mid to late 2019, I have launched what I jokingly refer to as “Operat...
