If you are in Ottawa let me know.  Maybe we can find a way to meet (safely) sometime.

Perhaps we can form an ad hoc club, given that I'm now temporarily located in Ottawa as well (thanks COVID!).

Hmm... sounds like there is a story there!

PM me your email addresses and we can create a list.

If things are still open after the holidays we could perhaps find a place to have a safely-spaced coffee.  Too bad we missed the good weather - the outdoor Tavern on the Hill right across the street from the National gallery is awesome.

Hi Enodia,

Nice dog!

It looks like a black long haired Lab. Is it friendly?

All Labs are friendly.  Never saw a tail  like that though.
I wouldn't join any club that would have me as a member!

Repo is actually a Flat Coated Retriever, and he is psychotically friendly!
Whenever we're at the dog park and I don't see him nearby I just look for the nearest children and he'll be right there dropping his ball at their feet waiting for them to throw it.
I got him from the rescue center at 10 months old and he had already been adopted and returned twice, hence the name.
He just turned 8 on Thanksgiving, and I couldn't be more thankful for anything!

Hi all,
couldn't make my usual ice climbing trip due to the bloody organizational mess around because of our virus "friend" : grumpfff and grumpfff again.

So ... revenge when opportunity arises.

Hope you get back to it before too long! Ice climbing used to be one of my things as well.

Deer hunting is my vice. Roman coins becoming a close second.  This one was killed Feb 9, last year.  Three days left in the AL season.

And a photo of why I don't own more coins... lol.



And so that it's more on topic with my Roman Imperial coin collecting hobby, a pic of me from a year and a half ago on a trip to Rome just inside the Porta del Popolo (which used to be called the Porta Flaminia) in the Aurelian Wall. I'm standing in the Piaza del Popolo with an Egyptian obelisk of Ramesses II from Heliopolis behind me.

I had a sailboat many years ago.  The costs for the year or so I owned it were more than $1000 for each time I took it out to sea. I lost a lot of enthusiasm for boat ownership.

Lol... you're not wrong.  It's a pay to play passtime, and you either absorb it, or you don't.

My brother in law (ex-USN like Joe): Wanna go half on a sailboat?
 Me: Well, I... It's a lot of work and I don't have a lot of time..
B-I-L:  She's a beauty, all wood except gear...
Me:  Are you out of your f.....?
B-I-L:  (25+ years on subs): I'm used to being under water ...

LOL.  Perfect. 

I spent almost 15 years working on missile frigates and attack submarines. I now sit at a desk and oversee people that do the real work, so a boat was a nice way to remind me of old times when I felt more useful :)

Mine is a 27' Four Winns cabin cruiser that doubles as a floating cottage.

I've worked up the courage to participate with this light hearted picture

Here is my hound, Hector, telling me to stop watching sports and to get off my ass and take him out for a walk!

... also, a shot of Hector helping me with the garden (man, he's a character)
