Thanks I'm good . biggrin 

I called a guy before Christmas, and verbally contracted him, to come blow out our main driveway

By Jan 1st he had never came .  I blew it out 10 times .   

We called and he said he would not come for 3-4 inches in drive and 12 inches at end . 

what a jerk....

 

I guess I'll manhandle the blower until I die .

Yeah, the prairies are awful, it just snows all winter here. Manitoba is a horrible place to live.

Actually, hold on a second. I'm still waiting to clear the driveway for the first time this winter.....

I'm wondering if I'm going to wear any paint off the new blower I bought today.

      No .   I just need someone to clean out my drive at the same time they do 10 others on this street

 

     My snow blower is great .  but my 69 year old body screams with aches the next day

 Yes, and not a unreliable jerk. Did you write-up a contract with him? If not, I'd bail and get your neighbour's plow-boy.

With a 2 day weekend at home I wired a 220 plug in for the construction heater so I could finish off insulating the garage

If your house is heated with forced air electric, all you need is one of these.

2nd drivway filled as well .   Have to get truck out tomorrow for work .  

 

No blower .  1 old plastic scoop . 

 

30 minutes of back breaking, heart pounding, wheezing for air and I have a "little " spot dug out

 

Cost to me?  probably 2 full days of pain . 

 

Penny wise and Pound foolish .

Bought another  obsession "Toy" for the shed today.

1975 Yaesu FT-101E and aux speaker.

Just for listening at this point, but totally impressed with the quality of the reception. This thing is the real deal.
