It’s been a while since I wrote anything on this blog, two weeks to be exact, and in that time tings piled up. My birthday came and went without much fuss. I guess at 55 years of age much of the excitement about birthdays is gone. But what I really wanted to write about, rather sooner than later, was the turkey hunting trip and a few new products that I had the pleasure of field testing over the past few weeks.
There is a long list of reasons why my blog posts got delayed. Finally spring has arrived here in the Nicola Valley and with that the garden became a priority and still will be for a few weeks. Inside the house a new staircase needed to be built and while I was at it we laid a new floor in the entry hall too. My wife and I finally got sick of the wall-to-wall carpeting and ripped it all out. The carpet is now replaced with a beautiful natural wood floor and a matching staircase. Next we will tackle the living room floor that at the moment also has wall-to-wall carpet. The wood for the living room floor is currently climatzing in our basement.
What really prevented me from writing are the computer troubles I am experiencing lately. The darn machine is in and put of the “computer clinic” and is still not working right. I guess, like me, the computer is showing its age and probably soon needs to be replaced. But in the meantime I writing as much as I can to meet deadlines and get the posts for this blog written.
By tomorrow I will have the post up, hopefully, about my turkey hunting trip that turned out to be much more than just a ordinary hunting trip. You will have to come back and read all about the experiences and good folks we meet on that trip. I also hope that I get the product reviews written and posted here. It does not often happen that I come across a product that makes me go “WOW” but it happened in the last two weeks not once but twice.
As you can see a lot has happened worth to write about, so make sure to stay tuned and check back frequently.
