    Laying on the couch, staring at the ceiling and generally avoiding all responsibility.

    Garage day. Maureen's car: change winter tire to summers. My truck: change winter tire to summers. Change oil & filter. Clean & re-oil air filter. Replace burnt-out signal lamp. Swap winter grill cover to summer screen cover. Clean out a winter's worth of crap and beach sand from the interior. Take off broken/rusted-out driving lights and install new ones. Remove, adjust, & re-install tailgate latch mechanism. Sharpen & tune up the chainsaw. Spring commissioning of the lawn tractor. By the time I finish all of that, it will be time for a beer...
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    AlanMc, winter snow tires (softer rubber compound, aggressive tread pattern, siping for ice grip) and summer tires (harder rubber, less aggressive tread), each on it's own rim. Winters for traction and stopping power in ice & snow, summers for quietness and better gas mileage. SOP around here.

    Tomorrow is busy:

    • pick up a couple of my guitars from the Guitar Doc
    • change strings on three guitars
    • install a sound-hole pickup in the Morgan (it's getting a new acoustic pickup as I write this, but I need magnetic/electric-style output as well)
    • reorganize my guitar rig and ensure that the signal flow is working as intended (a bit complicated because I route four instrument outputs through two effect units, only one of which is active at any give time)
    • calibrate a tuner for the bagpipes I'll be playing with next week, tune the Morgan to the pipes, and familiarize myself with the charts for the song and tunes I'll be playing with the piper
    • cart everything to our first full rehearsal with the full band and dancers, and rehearse for what I'm guessing will be at least three hours


    Sunday, by comparison, is relatively slack - breakfast out, followed by a visit to my folks' place north of the city, and dinner with the family. Maybe a bit of time to work on my vanity font project in the evening.

    And legally required in some provinces; Manitoba is considering it. Winter tires and AWD make winter driving a lot more enjoyable, and a lot safer.

    Breakfast (sweet potato home fries, topped with corned beef hash, topped with 2 poached eggs, and then topped with chipotle Hollandaise sauce all in a bowl, coffee on the side)

    and then I have to think about it...

    Its already Saturday morning here, so I'm cooking scones for a Devonshire Tea for the writers group that I belong to, the meeting is this afternoon and its my turn to provide refreshments.
    That done I'll tow Spook down to my mothers place, strip the rig and put it in the shed for winter maintenance. I've got the little gaffer going pretty well, embarrassing most of my friends much more "modern" boats, but there is a lot more to come so there are changes to be made, a new mainsail to be ordered for next summer, the jib sheet leads to be moved, a lighter weight gaff jaws, lighter halyards run, a different foil section made on the daggerboard ( She has a full length keel plus a daggerboard, thats the secret weapon) and a few other things done to get that bit extra. I know that the guys are all working on their boats, so I need to do some tuning to keep that edge.
    All that done there is a picnic gathering for small trad boats tomorrow, so I need to put SEI and her rig on the trailer and get her there in the morning.
    If there is time I'll work on one of the two boats abuilding in the workshop.

    sounds good. I’ll be relegated to two boiled eggs and a mug of English Breakfast tea.

    Move dirt like a rented mule. Take a toothbrush to the front steps. Defrang the Methalizors. Grill some dinner with a couple of G & T’s with my sweetie.

    I like Chicago, I like Earth Wind and Fire. I hated it when they were touring together. as the only real electrician on the crew, I actually have one of the easiest jobs. Nothing gets plugged into power unless I do it. Somebody has to keep people safe from six 400 amp service panels we have on that stage. Nobody has been fried or bit on my watch and I am going to make sure nobody will.

    Well that plan didnt last long. I spotted a facebook post that had one of my Tender Behind dinghies free to a good home, and a response from a friend of mine who is struggling with cancer treatment and trying to get his little double ended yacht into good enough condition to live aboard, or at least get a bit of sailing in. He needed a dinghy, and a TB would fit on his foredeck, so I put my oar in, organised a pickup and its now sitting up on the grass next to SEI, DeFlatermouse and the Kayak. I'll take it on up to my friends place on Tuesday when I'm heading that way.
    I hope tomorrows plan survives.

    Boat splashed, it's forty years since I last paddled a white water race boat.

    Wobbly.

    Remove the cover from the boat, pressure wash her inside and out, step the mast and check all the fittings. Test the reef points I added over Winter. The sun's out, the wind light and the temperature is just about double-digits Celsius. Jack up the trailer and check the bearings and tyre pressures.

    ...in my heart. My head points out, in that annoyingly practical way it does, that I'm working today and tomorrow.

    Not sure what the weather has been out in Bridgewater area but here in Halifax, we just got a dumping of snow the other day. You sure you're ready to swap out your winters for summers Michael? I contemplated it the other day but I'll wait until next weekend I think. Just in case mother nature isn't done fooling with us yet.

    Wife Tereza and I went to the historic gold mining town of Hill End- I lived five miles from there when I was teenager. They're putting on a weekend of folk and craft stuff. We wandered around, chatted to a few old friends, had a big feed of seafood paella, got home around four and I fell asleep in my chair. Hundred mile round trip on the Harley- twisty country road, air just cool enough to feel good. Still pickin critters out of my beard JayInOz
