Quick Post

Well just a quick post to let you all know I'm still alive and Kicking. Been super busy lately with little or no time to compute.

Last friday was the wedding in Toffino. Was great we had a good time. Will post pictures soon.

Recently started working at the photo lab at the new Wal-Mart and loving it. Most of the time its not like being at work at all and the time flys. First day doing prints from film and wouldn't you know it my first roll of film has some naked pictures of a woman. Full frontal nudity that cant be printed. Today I had a few pictures of a womans boob as they were trying to get photos of the baby breast feeding. I was really hoping it wasn't Dineen as that would have been awkward LOL. Saw some more pictures and it definately was not her. Also one film I did today had a guy getting a bj and then some other photos I can't talk about or couldn't print. I also took in 4 old rolls of film of mine to practise on and had a photo of a topless biker chick from when I went to Friday the 13th in port dover. I thought they were old ones from Molson Super Cross which would be about 8 years old but they were not. I think I still have some of them around.

Heard last week that I'm getting the landlord job for the place we live in so I'm giving my notice at the Truss place. Just not happy there and the 4:30am alarm is killing me. Then I have to go to bed around 8pm if I'm not at Wally's

Lastely for now my car is down for a bit. A couple days ago I blew a fan belt and yesterday (thursday) the altenator went on it. I can't find the receipt as it would still be under warrenty. I called them today and they don't have old ones in the computer so I need the receipt or month I took it in so they can find a copy of my receipt. Hmmmmm I will have to read back on my blog as maybe I posted about it on here. Well that's it for now gotta get some shut eye. One picture as a taste of whats to come.

Congrats Mary and Adam may you both be as Happy as Patty and myself for many many years!!

Quick cut and paste for now

I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit.
In order to earn that pay cheque, I work on a rig site for a Fort Mac construction project. I am required to pass a random urine test, with which I have no problem.
What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test. Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare cheque because I have to pass one to earn it for them?
Please understand - I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do on the other hand have a problem with helping someone sit on their arse drinking beer and smoking dope.
Could you imagine how much money the provinces would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance cheque?
Please pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don't. Hope you will pass it along though, because something has to change in this country, and soon!

Mad About You

The other day I was watching some TV flipping through the channels and came across the show Mad About You with Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt or is it Mike it was Helen Hunt I remember now. Oh see below it was Helen shouldn't there be two L's in Helen I thought there should be two of them. And Reiser you know I didn't spell that on my own because if I had (and I had) I would have spelt it R i before E s e r because its an R not a C and the rule says I before E except after C. No wonder I'm a poor speller they can't even keep the rules straight that they use to teach you how to spell. And sometimes that spell checker on here just won't work for me.

Oh remember that dog Murry. Boy that was a nice dog and funny too I remember one show where he kept running into something bumping his head....that was funny wish I could remember more about that show.

Anyways I was watching the show and all of a sudden it came clear to me that it was just like me and Patty. I believe they were a perfect couple and I think Patty and I are as close to perfect as two can be as a couple. Here is an example how Patty and I chat...

P: will be Patty talking and K: will be me or Kevin talking.

K: Hey Patty you want to go up to Nanaimo tomorrow ?
P: I don't know did you want to go up to Nanaimo tomorrow ?
K: I was thinking I might might want to go to Nanaimo tomorrow.
P: I guess we could go to Nanaimo tomorrow.
K: So are we going to Nanaimo tomorrow ?
P: It sounds like we are going to Nanaimo tomorrow.
K: But do you really want to go to Nanaimo tomorrow
P: I said yes I would go to Nanaimo tomorrow
K: But you didn't say you wanted to go to Nanaimo tomorrow
P: OK yes I want to go to Nanaimo tomorrow.
K: OK if you really want to go to Nanaimo tomorrow we can go.
P: Why? don't you want to go to Nanaimo Tomorrow ?
K: No not really I was thinking we should go to Victoria tomorrow.
P: OK lets go to Victoria tomorrow then.
K: Really ?
P: Yes Really lets go to Victoria tomorrow.
K: OK but if you'd rather go to Nanaimo tomorrow we can go to Nanaimo tomorrow.
P: Lets go to Victoria tomorrow
K: OK but I'm just saying
P: I know but if that's what you want to do we can do that.
K: I guess we can do that
P: What you don't want to go to Victoria tomorrow
K: You know I'm just not sure I want to go to Victoria tomorrow
P: Make up your mind or we can just stay home
K: That sounds like a good idea lets just stay home
P: Fine
K: Fine
P: Love you babe
K: Love you too babe ..... so what do you want to do at home tomorrow ?

That's not exactly a conversation but pretty close. Total different conversation.

K: I think I might go to a football game tomorrow.
P: Have fun with that!

I went looking for the Mad about you song yesterday but couldn't find it. I like that song. If anyone knows where I can get it on the Internet please let me know.

Found out last night that I got the Photo Lab job and will start training next weekend after the wedding. Looking forward to getting a way for a couple days. Should be fun !!

Also just got an email from the property management company that they will be down next week to talk to me. I hate that I want that job so bad because the property manager is an ass. I think I'd have lots of extra time for my photography and wouldn't have to get up so early every morning unless I wanted too. Patty would probably make me get up and drive the boy to school. Speaking of the boy or Ben as we like to call him. He and I are working on a school project of his and when we have more I'll post pictures but for now I'll post a picture that he drew of me.

See a pretty good artist isn't he. Ok I'm sick and need to rest and eat a popsickle.

Shout out to my peeps!!

well I just noticed its been a while since I last posted. Busy, busy, busy.

I went to an ear specialist and after some tests he set me up for some blood tests so I can get a ct scan. I had also gone to my family Dr and she set me up for some blood tests so she could do a complete physical. When I went to get the tests done I had lost the one form for the ear Dr so I couldn't get all the tests needed done. I have since found the form and now I need to go get the tests done but need to find out if I need to fast again.

On the job front I haven't been told officially if I got the photo lab job or not. I did have to have an interview for it then when the budget comes in (yesterday) he has to get permission from the store manager to take me from the other department. The lab manager said that he wants me so its up to the store manager. I haven't been in since Sunday and the manager wasn't in on the weekend so I couldn't suck up for the job. I'm not in till Friday but if I get a chance I might pop by the old store to see if there is any news.

At Vic Truss I talked to the owners brother and the manager and I feel a little better about the job there. Today the owner called me into the office and apologized for being so busy he never had time to talk to me. All three have told me how much they want me to stay and the owner is looking into giving me another raise. He also mentioned that he was thinking about using me for the foreman on afternoon shift when it comes available. Only problem is I really don't like the afternoon shift because I don't get to see enough of Patty. It really doesn't look like the property manager is going to give me a shot at the landlord job here. Would have been nice because I would have had a lot of time for my photography. A part of me has given up on it but part of me still wishes I had a chance at it. The guy is an ass because he doesn't return calls or emails and the last time I talked to him he told me next time hes down this way he will talk to me. Twice last week he was around but I never heard a thing.

Yesterday was my first full day off in a long time so I went to Nanaimo and stopped by Atlas Truss. I managed to avoid Riley and talked to a few people I knew from there. The owner was in a meeting so I never got a chance to see him. I stopped by the football office and talked to the coach and Bob Oh and then saw Scott my photographer friend . We had a nice chat and I asked him a favour. He is going to lease to buy a lens I want and I will pay him monthly. It's a professional lens 70 - 200 f2.8 which is great for sports and nature in low light. It's the same as he has lent me a few times over the last 2 years. My credit sucks and I can't get it on my own.

I got my first birthday present for this year. My aunt Irene is an artist and she made me a mosaic table with 2 wolves howling at the moon. Then today she dropped off a wolf picture that she drew for me. Once it was finished she said she just couldn't hang onto it till June but she told me she still has a little something for me on my birthday.

Well the TV is all paid for so now I start saving for our trip to Ontario in July. I still have to go get measured for my tux. Will probably have my hours at Wally's cut back in the summer after everything is paid off.

A week this Friday is Adam and Mary's wedding. Looking forward to going to Tofino for the weekend. Hopefully the weather will co - operate. The weather has been fine here. Yesterday the temp was 14 and the Daffodil's have been in bloom for about 3 or 4 weeks. We did get snow 2 weeks ago on Friday but it was gone that day or the next depending on where you were. At work we had at least 4 inches by 9am so they sent us home. When I got home we had a few patches here and there but it was pretty nice outside.

Just want to apologize to Annette and Terry as I've been so busy 7 days a week we haven't chatted in a while. Hope this has got you caught up on my end anyways. Will talk to you both soon. Time to go bug the wife.
