Where you at that it's going to be 105? I know you guys up north have been having a heat wave, but I thought it was because it hit 90. :) So funny to see New Yorkers suffering because it's 90.

Ontario

We hit 31C, actual temperature, today. The humidex was 41C+.

The humidity level is so high that the act of sweating is ineffective in cooling the body. Sweat just does not evaporate. All it does is run down into your socks. I spent the whole workday soaking wet. It gets kinda hard to hold tools when your hands are slick with sweat.

But a major storm front moved through this afternoon. The first wave brought heavy rains, but no temperature drop, just a steam bath. The evening storms dropped the temperature. I hear another storm moving in now.

great news to end a hard day without coffee, the 5D Mark 2 that I found out was a scam the day I mailed it off, just came back to me this afternoon after it's month long journey, with many "return to sender" tags attached! I now know not to send anything international if I have unanswered questions, it's too hard to stop the USPS unless it's domestic. Plus my new camera backpack arrived AND my wife got us the most amazing meatball subs from Felicia's Italian restaurant...and it's my Friday...

Cool, only a little more time and you could have had your first kill, but alas you fail. Nice try though!

Well, I did it again.

Totally shocked a guy that I would actually stop and help him out when I found him broken down on the side of the road.

Was headed home from riding at another conservation area. Saw a Chrysler Town & Country, towing a trailer with a motorcycle on it, sitting on the side of the road with its hood up. So I stopped to see if he needed help. Van had overheated. We put 10L of water in it, but the radiator was cracked near the top. He wanted to try and get the van home, so I offered to tow the trailer to take the load off the van. The guy was amazed that I would do that, but he took me up on the offer. I followed him to his place and parked the trailer.
The guy kept going on about how no one stops to help anymore, they just drive on by.

Way to go Mel, pay it forward.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

It would be nice if any of the folks I help were to pay it forward.

If I break down on the side of the road, I want someone to stop and check on me. I don't stop for everyone I see, it's just not feasible all the time. But if I see that someone is obviously in trouble, for sure I'm stopping.

Towing a trailer for 20 minutes, going about 10 kms out of my way, really is nothing. But for him, getting his van, trailer, and motorcycle home was a big deal.

I was going to go back to my last post and reply to every single post with a warm and personal message from the heart.

Too much effort so I will sum it up:

HA! Chet you slay me!!!

Moose did what???

I still get JJ and Ian confused since the name change.

Charles!!!! Subby!!!!! Together, you make Chubby!!!!

Icopus! Yo!!!

Good job Mel! I subscribe to the pay it forward idea. I suppose one never knows if they actually do pay it forward, but I get warm fuzzies in my happy place by doing my part.

It has been a miserably hot summer. And way too much rain, but my lawn looks better green than burned out tan. I have been more ambitious and have taken an insane amount of images. The ambition hasn't carried over to the post process part yet.


[RANT]
I hate my job. I need more interaction with people. I'm a people person, dang it. Staring at a computer screen all day and not really having a conversation with anyone is boring. I'm currently looking for something else. If anyone knows of a reasonably well paying position which allows me to surround myself with people who can do the things I don't want to, and still make me look busy, please forward the info. In all honesty, the money is good, the benefits are great. Those I report to are all very nice people. It's just one of those jobs where common communication just doesn't exist. It is very possible to feel totally alone in a room full of people.[/RANT]

I'm too young to retire and too old to begin again. Pizza delivery looks appealing.

I'm teaching myself to shave with a safety razor, the double edge, not the straight razor. It's the kind my dad used. I'm getting better at it and it makes shaving an adventure, not just a chore.

Hi goalerjones! I love my 24-105. It currently lives on my 1dIV. I don't ever see me selling that lens. If you need tips on kills, I can make myself available.

I worked as a pizza delivery guy in college. Two pizza delivery stories.
1. I was robbed once, well, sort of. I was carrying a big stack of pizzas to one of the dorms and a guy approached me, pulled a knife and demanded all my money. I told him I have none as I have not yet delivered the pizzas but if he would wait, I'll deliver the pizzas, get the money, then he can rob me. It made sense to him so I went about my business, delivered everything, and on the way out, he demanded I hand over the money. I gave him the money pouch, he opened it and saw nothing but checks. He asked, where the cash was. I told him, this is a college dorm. All students pay by check. He walked away swearing.
2. I was delivering a couple pizzas to one of the sorority houses. The young lady who answered said she couldn't pay but could she have the pizzas anyway, then opened the door all the way and behind here were maybe 15~20 nekid girls inviting me in. I gave then the pizzas.

So, thwarted robbery and nekkid girls. I'm not seeing a downside here....

So some of the far fetched movies I’ve seen could actually have been true? Lucky

This all seems rather contrived. You best go back and start multi-quoting.

I like these stories A LOT! The second one will have me fantasizing for days! Very much appreciated. :-P
