Day 772

People of the internet, some little LEGO sets.

I was doing the grocery shopping and came across these little LEGO City sets, so of course…I picked them up.

For $9 each you can’t complain, for the Surfer Rescue you get two minifigs and a freaking shark, and for the Police ATV I love the disgruntled face print on the criminal. It’s awesome.

Today I found some small LEGO City sets at the grocery store.

Day 772
People of the internet, Bender.
So I’m working on the video of the bike ride but unfortunately the new iMovie is just a complete piece of junk. I’ve found the old version on the iMac and might be doing all my video work back on it.
So stay tuned for a late video update sometime this week.
In the meantime we have Bender, my sister’s dog. He’s a massive lab and he and my sister are going to be staying at my place up here for the next two months!
Hopefully we’ll find some time to do some fun things around here and I can take Bender for a few long runs or good hikes. Should be good!
Today I played with Bender in the backyard.

Day 770

People of the internet, my legs are killing me.

Got up bright at early at 11am this morning to meet up with Dan for coffee, then strapped on the headphones and the GoPro and biked all the way to the Omemee rail bridge.

Man, was it a hot one.

It’s a slow incline on the way there so it took me about an hour to get out there, then maybe 45 minutes to get back.

But the view was totally worth it, I love how the valley just drops out from underneath you. Really cool spot and a perfect day for it.

Today I went on a 24K bike ride to the Omemee rail bridge and back.

Day 769
People of the internet, the garden.
One nice thing about this really rainy and gloomy summer is that I haven’t had to water the plants all that often.
Today the lilies really started to bloom nicely.

Day 768
People of the internet, eating a fish.
It was a catch from Sunday that I had carefully frozen in the freezer and slowly thawed this morning. I did a quick filet, fry and served it up with some sliced tomatoes with fried potatoes and pepper.
Today I fileted, fried and ate a fish I caught.

Day 764
People of the internet, a new camera.
This time it’s a Kodak Brownie 8mm movie camera! My parents found it at an antique store and surprised me this weekend with an early birthday present.
So I’m going to see if I can find some 8mm reels and a place that will develop it all and put this old thing to work.
This weekend I got a 1950’s Kodak Brownie 8mm camera from my folks.

Day 763
People of the internet, a long weekend.
Home with the folks on Saturday for a joint sibling birthday celebration, out to the Jane Bond with a friend on Saturday night to watch a guitarist in a space-helmet and spandex play the blues and home today to go fishing.
There’s a video of the whole ordeal but that will be for tomorrow.
Today I went fishing as the sun went down.

Day 762
People of the internet, the cottage.
Back up to Ally’s family cottage for a few days in the, well, rain. It was the rainiest and coldest few days in August I think I ever have experienced.
We swam anyways, did a lot of fishing and sat by the campfire at night. We spent yesterday afternoon actually playing Clue, while watching the movie Clue! It was pretty great.
Today I got back from a rainy few days at the cottage.

Day 759
People of the internet, the Desert Skiff.
Now I’ve got a full Return of the Jedi thing going, just missing the squinting Han Solo minifig. This set is fun, the Sarlaac is a nice touch and the detail in both Lando and Boba is incredibly cool.
So I just had to add it to the collection.
Today I added the Desert Skiff to the LEGO collection.

Day 759
People of the internet, the LEGO Zombie Cemetery is up on LEGO Ideas!
It got approved!
In order for it to be considered to be an actual LEGO product the set will need 10,000 votes. That’s right, 10,000.
As I post this I have 11 votes so far. So I doubt this is actually going to happen, but it’s really cool to have it up and to have other builders and fans vote for the project.
Today you can vote for the LEGO Zombie Cemetery on LEGO Ideas.

Day 757
People of the internet, bachelor parties!
So after the wedding on Friday we got back to Peterborough and I headed out to my work buddy’s bachelor party. We golfed and there was actually a few good holes with nice shots and birdie tries. But as the day went on the name of the game was drinking, so for every shot in the sand or water you had to down a beer.
Surprisingly, I think we played better on the back nine.
By the time we got back it was time for dinner and feasted on the best steak in town. Unfortunately I couldn’t stay too late as I had to work so I stumbled home and promptly fell asleep.
Yesterday I played golf for Jimmy’s bachelor party.
