shit man,  put a jersey on him and take him to McD's.
can't you get arrested for not feeding your children in canaidia?

My exact thought minus McD.
Feed your son and protect the wildlife,
Boys will be Boys.
And girls are darn thankful for that

Looking at the snow I was thinking - @immigrant  how is your cat doing?
Courtesy from Grizz: In this day and age religion is often frowned upon, but I have met some of the most amazing people from various religions over time.
From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.

She is doing fine. She spends most of the day under the overhead heater in the garage waiting for the kids to get home.

Hunting season is open. These animals are very predictable. Look at the time stamps on the pics. Same buck, same time, different day





I know where I will be tomorrow morning 09:30....

I will never forget this day....14 years ago when we arrived here with 2 suitcases and a dog. It’s been an adventure for sure. Am I glad I did it? Hell yes!  Will I do it again? Hell no!

We make migration decisions for our kids more than for us.
I am certain that your kids are living a life that many millions of kids would love !

Geluk met die lewe wat julle daar gebou het Immigrant. Dit het verseker harde werk gekos. Doen so voort :thumleft:

Immigrant when you arrived did you already have a job or did you have to start hunting upon arrival?

Lots and lots of trees...

Is that long clearing parallel to the road going away from your house a landing strip?

Sorry for the late reply. I had a few things to take care of.

 No, it is not a landing strip. Just a firebreak of sorts.

And then this.....

My favourite of the whole article:
If someone has a valid Autopac policy and a valid driver's license, Manitoba Public Insurance will cover incidents like what happened Sunday, a spokesperson said Monday.

Even stupidity is covered by insurance
