A man in Alberta wakes up one morning to find a bear on his roof. So he looks in the yellow pages and sure enough..there's an ad for "Alberta Bear Removers."
He calls the number and the man says he'll be over in 30 minutes.
The bear remover arrives and gets out of his van. He's got a ladder, a baseball bat, 12-gauge shotgun, and a mean heavily scarred old pit bull.

"What are you going to do?" the homeowner asks.

"I'm going to put this ladder up against the roof, then I'm going to go up there and Iíll knock the bear off the roof with this baseball bat. When the bear falls
off the roof, the pit bull is trained to grab his testicles and not let go. The bear will then be subdued enough for me to put him in the cage in the back of the van."

He then hands the shotgun to the homeowner.

"What's the shotgun for?" asks the homeowner.

"If the bear knocks me off the roof, shoot the dog. :o

Got Cows.....LOL
I was born and raised on the farm moved away for many years and just moved back home about 3 years ago. I have thought for many years and especially since I moved back home that I would like to own some cows. Investments have sort of sucked so I made a deal with the BIL and went to the auction last week and started my "herd". Bought 6 Angus bred heifers 3 red and 3 black hope to get up to about 15 in a couple of years. I am thinking it will be a great supplement for the retirement.

I've worked with quite a few guys over the years that have done or are doing the same as you. Nothing wrong with having a nice herd they can be a very solid form of secondary income.

What part of the country are you in, you said central looks like east central, maybe Two Hils kind of country ??

Great to see that you are using the capital investments that are already on the farm.

You also have the existing capital to set up other small profit making ventures.  I commend you for you ingenuity

Investments in the stock market for normal middle class people are a joke these days. One usually ends up losing or breaking even, after you pay the brokerage costs.

I moved away in 74, oil was just getting started. The 80's and ever since have been pretty busy (maybe not the last couple years).

We know that Walleyes. Is the night shift  pretty busy or do you have time to have a couple of coffees and peruse the boat parts catalogues?

It sounds like the weather in the land of the mighty Peace is sort of crappy right now.


Take Care. :)

Lol, thx grey.

Just doing th big switch over today, we work a 24hr shift on our switch over days, got on shift yesterday at 16:30hrs will get off today at 16:30 then I'm on my 10 days of day shift.

No nights are pretty casual out here. Unless there's issues of course or we are doing a cement job then it's a busy night. Most nights are spent on the computers doing books for a couple hours other than that it's pretty much just keep an eye on stuff. Phone is quiet, pretty much just cruise the interweb looking at boat and hunting stuff lol.

Any thing with a hint of military must be worth thousands of dollars, right. ;)
