That's one show I won't forget

Recommended Posts

As I had posted earlier I was displaying our goods at the Niagara Outdoor Show. Saw some folks, sold some goods an put on some pounds by show's end.  As we are packing up at day's end, the son drops a display board square across my toes.  Despite wanting to curse and swear, I had to bite my tongue. The grandkids were standing right there.  Finish packing, haul the goods home, then spend 5 hours in Emerg to tell me the obvious. I have a broken toe, and they can't do anything til next morning. Wait another two hours this morning to get fitted for a boot.  

Guess I can have some down time at home.

It hurts like an jerk, and can't do anything about it. I broke my big toe walking in the water fishing on a Friday AM, couldn't do a thing all weekend, of course the first time I could put on a boot was Monday and I limped into the plant at 7PM. . You should have twittled or airmailed me, I could have saved you 5 hours sitting in the Emerg.

I'll live alright. Just don't need the down time at this time of year.

Before you know it you will be back on your tippy toes. Tape your big toe to your next (index?) toe. That's what they did when playing ball and you got turf toe. That hurt worse than a broken toe. It is a dislocated big toe.

Our plan is to target Wally's and possibly trek in for a brookie or 2 if the logistics of the lakes work out. My buddies kid is just old enough to come with us so this isn't going to be hard core adventure. But we do intend to camp out th

    • The future of Diesel. Is there one? NF

      I have a young fella that is the son of a pal that helps me around the property doing odd jobs. A smart and a mature kid beyond his years. He is 17 and is currently doing a co-op with the intent to get his diesel Mechanics licence. Will there be diesel fueled vehicles in 25 years from now? I can't really predict that with the aim to get away from fossil fuels in the near future, especially diesel fueled big rigs but I don't see a long term future if it is up to our Gov.s. I was told when I went

      Checked things out today.  Seems to be less to see than last year. No smokin deals. Tried to buy a couple Honda Inverter Generators. 2200s. Buddy was willing to give me a whole 4% show discount. 😳.  Sat in on Big Jim’s seminar.  I do like his jigs.  Stocked up.
