  1. Yes, I wouldn't wish this on anyone except a few people living in Ottawa. 😉 Even though most people get over it quickly with no real issues I wouldn't take the chance that you could end up really sick. I don't think it's worth it.
  2. look at the mini 2. Heard tons of good things about it already.
  3. It's been a tough year OI. Between the COVID thing and losing my dad my pup also died this summer. This crappy year can end anytime now. I've had about as much as I can handle.
  4. That is what I'm dealing with. I'm in month #10 of this hell. 😠
  5. One more thing. With the numbers heading up again and lockdown's happening there are all those family members that we can't see now. Your loved one in the hospital dying of cancer, old age or some other ailment are going to die alone. You won't be able to be there comforting them. Your mother, father or grand parents in the seniors home, long term care facility. Nope, can't see them either. My dad moved into a long term care facility on March 12th. It was locked down on the 14th. He didn't see anyone outside of hospital staff until July. I could tell that it was really taking a toll on the old fella. Last Friday he passed away in University Hospital in London Ontario. Now I'm here in Ontario hoping I have some immunity to this COVID crap while I deal with pops estate and funeral. Luckily he was able to have visitors even though he was on a floor with COVID patients or he would have died alone.
  6. My Dr's are certain I had it back at the end of January. By the beginning of February I was sicker than I have ever been. It got worse from there. By the first week of March (the same time the first reported death of COVID in Canada happened) I had to go to emergency for the second time. I couldn't breathe and felt like I was dying. The emerg Dr thought I was having congestive heart failure. Lots of x-rays, tests later that was proven not the case. They didn't know what was going on. While there my BP spiked at 200/140 and my oxygen levels dropped to 80% at one point. After most of the day in there I stabilized and they sent me home. Still couldn't breathe. My Sr sent me to heart and lung specialists had to fly to Edmonton for some of my heart tests. After all the tests they still found nothing. This virus does some weird things and they are only now starting to figure them out. I had severe chest pains and pain radiating down my left arm and across my collar bone for months, I couldn't breathe for months, my blood chemistry was completely screwed up. I had issues with my stomach, liver, heart and lungs. My heart/chest pain finally subsided at the end of June. 5 1/2 months after I first got sick. The stomach issues are still there, the blood issues worked themselves out with the help of a pile of prescriptions. I was so weak I could barely function for months. I'm now at 10 months since I first got sick and am still not 100%. I don't know when or if I will ever be. I've had a headache for months, can't remember things and and can't concentrate. But I hear some people say it's just the flu. It turns out I'm in a group of people that have had COVID symptoms for more than 90 days (2.2% of people that have had COVID). As of today I'm on day 311 😷 I would bet $$$$$ that this thing has shortened my life. By how much I don't know. OH, my arthritis is 2 to 3 times worse now as well. I can barely walk, my back has me doubled over most days. Cortisone shots in my spine have been helping but they only do a small section at a time. Each time I go I have to fly to Edmonton to get them done and then when I get back to Yellowknife I have to self isolate for 14 days because of the virus. As of December 20th I will have had to self isolate 48 days since the end of June. But it's OK, it's only the flu.
  7. I buy tons of stuff from them. They are like the Toys R Us for guys!!!
  8. FYI, for future needs Canadian Tire also carries them.
  9. Well up in my neck of the woods most people have never registered their boats at all. Plenty of big a$$ boats running around sans numbers here. No one cares. You are never asked to provide any paperwork. It's not like the feds will ever come looking for us miscreants up here. Fed: Sir I need to see your license Me: huh? License? I don't need no stinking license!!! Fed: Oh, you're getting a ticket it's $50 Me: Hmmmm, so you spent $11,000 flying around the arctic so you could give me a %50 ticket? That's just mint bye!!! OH and something else strange has been going on. Ever since the gun ban was announced my sonar has been seeing this more and more. It's really weird.
  10. Tonight's going to be YUGE!!!! https://www.tvo.org/about/alternative-viewing-premiere-november-3-2020-dont-miss-tvo-original-picture-my-face-the-story-of?fbclid=IwAR2VE3M1dg2uVIKlvq57gC6NxHsH8ThyG6CC6qbrlcf9UB-e6hP9Pp_qiSQ
  11. I have a den at the foot of my driveway. I throw my scraps and leftovers out for them.
  12. Yep, seen some good ones. Took this time lapse last month.
  13. Not at all. Won't be long before snowmobiling and.........................
