I THEN GOT OLD AND RETIRED
I LOST MY SEATS AND GOT A NEW GIG
I AM NOW A HAULIN SOME OLD DAWGS &
I BECAME THE GRAYDAWG
But I do promise each and every one of you who drop in, at least one great pot of soup. Plus Hugs and kisses for just getting here. I know it's a LONG road trip for some of you.
More variations to come as I experiment with early greens from the garden.
For the Vegan or Vegetarians among you, I'll feature one of "Rick's End of the Vegetables" soup one day.
Take Care All--and Eat Well!
Just got the first chance to look at Cobble Hill on Google Earth. What a beautiful little place! I am perched at the corner of Heigh and Fisher, right in front of Barry's garage. Beer Wine Liquor Store across the street.
How do you get there?? I see a ferry from Vancouver to Sidney. Then what?? South to Goldstream, then back up??
Get on Google Maps--use Sidney B.C. to 1250 Hutchinson Rd, Cobble Hill--and if you try to find ME on Google Earth--I'm in the wrong spot, they've got me at Norma & Sandy's by the firehall, you have to go over hill from there and at top of hill is group mailbox on left--third house on left after mailbox, so keep going left on Google Earth, or go Heigh Street to Watson, Watson to Hutchinson and around that way.
Barry's Garage is an institution around here, it was a blacksmith's first, now owned by Donna & Keith Barry with the mechanic's bays rented to Ian Tait--Ian fixes my van
If you can see the Community Hall, well due to long and complicated reasons , I QUIT volunteering there yesterday.
I got here because I was born here--and some days I'd love to leave
Now come 2:30 every day I have school buses roaring by, early in the morning its the supply trucks for the store, vet's, post office, pub and garage.
Late at night it's freight trucks like the one that went KABOOM a few weeks ago, and we're a half mile from the tracks, so until recently we heard the passenger train twice a day (cut due to economics) So now it's the freight trains bringing grain or whatever to the two feed mills in Duncan and further up Island.
We're also on the flight path for the airport, so we have planes, helicopters and the occasional microlight buzzing around.
All in all its not a bad place to live, but you'd better lock up everything you own if you go out or go to bed, since the invasion of "city slickers" we've had the vehicles broken into 4 times and stuff taken from the garden.
Time tor an electric fence!
Week 6 of new neighbours--party hearty AGAIN!
Once when they moved in a month ago, again two weeks ago and again tonight
I had planned to get up early and get some more clean-up done, looks like that idea is postponed until I get some sleep.
Somebody loan my a loud hailer and a siren to get their attention over this--Monday morning I phone my by-law officer, and if a warning from him don't stop it, I call the RCMP.
I cannot have this bs going on-too hard on my health-and as helpful as they may be when they're sober, they're a pain in the butt when they party!
Got enough broth for 2 pots so I'm going to freeze some.
Spring has Spring and we've got to get gardening
He's gardening with Jennifer today so it will be a quick soup with some broccoli and noodles in it.
Hoping for a quiet weekend, but with the hockey playoffs going on there might be a party next door again
If so, I'll take me sleeping bag and go sleep on the couch at Rob's, I'm tired of the noise.
Can't beat lunch though,,PRAWNS-yum, I ate a dozen with about 2 dozen French fries-real home cut fresh potatoes too.
All this eating seems to be working, gained 1.8 pounds when I got weighed today!
Not much, but something, just have to eat more but try to avoid that stuffed feeling and indigestion.
The strawberries have a bumper crop going and the "tub garden" I put on the front of Pit Stop is growing all sorts of greens, carrots and dill.
A lot of stuff volunteered from the compost
