From the land of the Bluenose.....after making a home brew of Tim's I headed out to a local park for a quick dig before the onslaught of my 5 night shifts of which 3 are time and a half. Man if I keep this overtime thing up I'll be able to go for month long vacation next winter or recuperate in a nursing home.
Not a bad day and the park/playing field was all mine without even a passing Canada Geese a honkling or doing the "dew."!
Have man handled this place on several occasions but it still produces the odd ring and a slew of coins. Umpire games here and make a point of taking rubbish off the playing surface usually in the form of beer cans which I throw into a bag then my trunk. At the price of gas these days every little bit helps. Bluenoser the Enviromental engineer at work!.Those bouys do enjoy the game but are really a great group to umpire.
Half way through my dig nature called. Unlike that bear in the bathroom tissue commercial I couldn't find the tree limb that had the Charmen on it and had to settle for leaves infiltrated with twigs. Mister man let me tell you after that espisode I felt like I was walking behind a novelty truck filled with itching powder that was leaking my way. Good thing no birds were "behind" me or they would have been dive bombing to get at the twigs I was "carrying" to help build a nest!
Went to the beach and washed up having buried the evidence and noted that the water wasn't have bad...............um I can feel a swish a coming if I ever have a day off.
A few more bell tones and the call came again. Must have been that Indian curry dish Kahanna made for me going the route so I headed behind the dumpster this time on my way to the outdoor loo and was greeted by this.
Take for the day was the quota of 50 coins @$5.17
