with the staff on crutches from twisting her ankle the day of the great fire. the meals have improved with her stuck at her house cooking for me in the Kingdom. when i return her pony back to her, i pick up my freshly made supper which tonight was pizza pops. xena was calling them some fancy big word that started with a "c" or a "k". if i can't spell it or say it i don't use the word so they are pizza pops. easy to spell and easy to say even when drinking professionally.

i bought this 46 chevy 3 ton in 1990 when i was married with children living in the south. now this week with the help from the people on the old saskatchewan facebook page, i now know the names on the door of the truck. trotter transport was listed in the book in regina as a business in 1947 so the truck was new back then. w campbell was from moose jaw that was hand painted over the original name. the computers make the world a small place. last day for the Head Hanger book being FR*E

we had a big storm last night which we knew was coming. it was too humid with our clothes sticking to our body and it was only +25c. plus the 7 guard dogs were acting strange and hiding in their hiding holes. animals can tell you more about the weather then the weatherman. then the rains came and i had to unplug everything in fear of a power surge. since i had no time to get ready for the daily post i will use a picture from tuesday when i was doing all the tire changes. the green fork lift is handy for a few things around the Kingdom. 2nd book in winter road series is FR*E for 2 more days.

i live outside of WHO-ville which is located in Stalin's Russia. my neighbour and i both agreed that the last time WHO-ville graded the road that gives me access to the back of the Kingdom was in 2006. but today i had to ride the mini Hoe to fix where the village idiot decided to lay some rubber with his mommy's ford. the idoit spun the 1 wheel down in the dirt road 8" for 10 feet then got a lame-ass blackie on the only smooth piece of highway in 20 miles. if the ford had any power, the drive shaft would have been twisted off and ejected out from under the vehicle. trust me i know from experience with a chevy and too much booze was involved. i had just dragged the road with the Green Toy after the great fire so it would be nice and smooth for my neighbour and me. oh well just smile and wave and be happy to ride my Hoe, lol thansk

one of the joys of winter roads is we run around in a hurry to grab tires off the storage trailers when needed. these 2 tires were taken off the storage trailer at 10:30pm on a sunday night back in march because the other 6 spare tires in the shed were already out on loan. now the tries have finally been returned to the Kingdom and i put them back on the storage trailer. but at my age i am working smarter not harder by using the air system on the Screaming Ford for the impact wrench. plus using the green forklift known as the Rut Maker to bring the tools and wooden blocks from the shop and back. the ice road book is FR*E for 4 more days

back in january 2021 i was sitting in my house at the end of the world Boo-Hooing after the Group of 7 lead me a stray on getting my new books on amazon. i had been following the actor Paul Le Mat on his facebook page because he is an author too. i spent the month of january learning amazon and how to get my new books on for the world to enjoy. i kept going back and forth to Paul's amazon author page to see and learn. then at the end of january, amazon accepted my books for the world to read and enjoy. now paul le mat has inspired me for the 3rd time in my life. because when i was little, i watched American Graffiti at the drive in while wearing my PJs. when we returned home after the movies, my dad would carry me to my bedroom because i was in a deep sleep being only 5 years old when the film came out. then i wrote my 6th book Love is Trust which is the Summer of Fun 1985. my 37 Dodge was the fastest hot rod and i was living the life of the character paul le mat played as john milner in american graffiti. now to be grey haired and living at the end of the world in a 10x30 shack down by the tracks. only to be inspired by paul le mat again as an author and on amazon. today his book arrived in the mail and xena took a selfie of me in front of the Screaming Ford which gave me 15 seconds of fame around the world on national TV show Ice Road Truckers. i say thank you to paul le mat and i tip my hat to you. thansk

i am living in Stalin's Russia because i woke up with no power again. hydro had a planned power outage for saturday morning but turned the power off twice in the afternoon with no notice. then the rains came at midnight and the power went off and on the hydro webpage they are saying for the power will be turned back on around lunch time. of course hydro does not deduct the cost of my gas and welder being used for power off my hydro bill. between the pothole roads and hydro power not being of any good service, it is Stalin's Russia we have now become.

the local discount store 1200kms in the south did not have any yard lights in stock or on line for over 2 months. i then ordered from Ebay in California which arrived yesterday. i got 6 yard lights for the the price of 3 that i was trying to ordered from the discount store. since the staff still has a hurt ankle from the day of the great fire, she made me a cheat sheet for wiring the yard light in since i am colour blind. it only took 4 hour to change out the old yard lights that were new in 2018 but out of 11 lights only 1 worked. these white led lights did not last long and i had to buy new light sensors which helped a bit but they are junk. i figure the white ones cost $350.00 each with making a mounting bracket then all the problems to try and keep them working. the new ones from California have no external light sensors and came with mounting bracket for $50.00. the best yard light i still have is the old one from the mine site which is a late 1960s model. after installing the light on a pole on the little shop in 1996, the light sensor quit and the yard light stayed on all the time. in the 25 years it has been up the pole i have never changed the light bulb or done anything. people would see the yard light on during the day and tell me i was wasting electricity and costing money. in my eyes that was the cheapest yard light i have ever owned because it cost nothing and lasted for ever. these new style yard lights that only last 1-2 years costs a lot of money but the Swedish Kid thinks we are saving money.

finally after a year of sitting in the heated loader shed, i popped the head off the 922 loader to see the blown head gasket. i was very lucky it was only the head gasket and not a cracked head. then i broke the glow plug trying to remove it from the pre-cup. it was my lucky day with a little welding on the Stainless Steel glow plug to get it removed. i am glad that i used never-seize back in 1994 when i installed these new glow plugs.

i am getting tired of my new best friends during the winter road seasons not paying my invoices which is getting worse every year. i do not charge outrageous rates for my services. then i have to chase my money does not make me happy. the only way to get my money from the time wasted last winter with these dead beat customers is to write the drama i had with them in my 10th book in my winter road book series on "where is the money". then the books sales will help pay off the money owed by them. then next year on the winter roads when they break down, they can make new friends with some other repair shop 300kms away. also amazon has reduce the price of all my Ebooks as part of a summer promo thing. plus the 1st book in the winter road series is on for FR*E for the next 5 days

when the scrap guy with out his ladies came from the south he brought 40 bags of dog food for the 7 guard dogs. he was able to fill up the new service box for the 38 GMC truck so the dog food did not get wet. i was able to work smarter not harder and use the green forklift known as the Rut Maker to unload the dog food and out in the house. last day for this book for being FR*E on amazon which went to #1 in Lave and Romance. not sure how that happened because it is an adventure book on almost dyeing not adventures in the bedroom.

yesterday during the heat of the day of +30c, i had to bury the electrical wire for the tank shed. in 24 years of the wire laying on top of the ground i managed to find it last winter with the mini Hoe doing snow removal. the wire did stretch a bit before being ripped out of the tank shed. i put the 10" bucket on the mini Hoe because the extra wide bucket at 16" was not required. since i do not operate the mini Hoe, i just rode it and get the ground smooth enough with all the rocks when completed.

now after the great fire, i took the 46 chevy 3 ton water truck down to the muskeg behind the Kingdom to fill up the tank for pressure washing. we have had so much rain that the muskeg was crystal clean water which looked good enough to drink. then i had to back the 46 chevy 3 ton all the way back in to the Kingdom to part beside the tire shack where the pressure washer is located.

i had to load up the Hoe and go in to WHO-ville to fix up xena's driveway that got washed away in the heavy rains saturday night. the 39 chevy with the slip tank full of fuel made for a nice ride on the not so smooth roads. the Hoe only burns 15litres in 7 hours working hard so i had enough fuel for 20 days working.

july 02 2021 at 3pm at +37c and high winds, a fire started south of lynn lake of course it was a south wind and blew it towards town. xena had to empty her house and bring her 2 guard dogs here. then we used the Green Toy to drag the important stuff from the Kingdom to the open area at the tracks. we did this in 2005 but this time the Green Toy made it easier. the tire chains grabbed and fought to get the sleighs dragged. the fire has died down but in the morning it will flare up and we have every packed to be gone. it was 6 hours of non-stop work in the heat which was unreal. amazon has my 3rd book on for FREE for the next 5 days, share it well.

first time in 10 years it has gotten this hot. it was +40 in the shade and i walked over to the 39 chevy and the temp increased big time. everything stopped in the Great White North because we can't take this heat. if i took the 39 chevy for a drive to Dairy Queen to see and be seen, it would most likely over heat. but at -40c we are driving to the store as a regular event as if nothing was wrong.
