Today was a long day. This morning Kerry Movers came by my apartment in Pitt Meadows and put most of my apartment in their truck and moved me in Vancouver on East 7th, we had a stop at Annacis Island Lock-up storage where I stored my office and all my Encyclopedias, TV, Stereo, Wall Unit etc... The place in Vancouver is only a one bedroom, so small, you have to go outside, just to change your mind:-) Kurbitten was a bit lost when she arrived, but she's getting used to the place quick as she's already ate and is sleeping now. I still have lots of stuff in my apartment in Pitt Meadows, I still have it for 2 months, so no Rush, I'll make several trips, I got my Telus DSL and I can work on-line, tomorrow I go to work in Richmond for a full day and come back home which is Vancouver now. Once I'm all settled down with my frames and TV hung on the wall, I'll take some photos and put it on my BLOG. I still have a lot of unpacking to do now. Have a great week

I'm home in Pitt Meadows and out of Re-Hab permanently it feels great, I got more boxes that I will pack in the upcoming days getting ready for my Move to Vancouver and I found Storage space on Annacis Island called "Annacis Lock-up" and the best part when I walked into the place is that they are covered with nothing but the best HD Surveillance cameras by none other than Avigilon Corporation. I was very pleased to say the least and will definitely rent space there. I returned to my apartment had dinner at Swiss Chalet which is nice, tomorrow I go to work while Kurbitten stands guard or sleeps, in the evening we have a get together with all Avigilon Staff Worldwide at the Vancouver Aquarium as a Monte Carlo Casino Night, it should be good, I haven't seen a lot of them since before my plane crash. Looking forward to it. Have a great night, Blue Skies, JP

This Morning I drove Myself to Avigilon Corporation in Richmond, BC with my Honda Accord and my new Garmin GPS. I left work early today as I wasn't feeling well lots of "heartburns", I was dry heaving several times at work nothing came out and Manny & Spencer told me that I must be getting the Flu that several people got in the Richmond office. So I got the rest of the day off, and returned to Langley to get a couple hours of rest laying down and it seemed to have worked. I actually stopped 3 times during the drive back to throw-up, then it worked it mostly all came out and it felt so good. Sorry, I didn't keep any of it for you guys. I feel much better, I took a drive to Pitt Meadows and took photos for the movers, I'll post it on my next BLOG entry. I'll spend one last night at Jan's Place(JP) they won't mind. I'm off tomorrow and I'll finish my move to Pitt Meadows then, no rush I have the apartment in Pitt Meadows for the next 2 months anyhow.

I got these from my skydiving friend Dave Dave, too good not to pass:
HOW FIGHTS START
One year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as
A Christmas gift....
The next year, I didn't buy her a gift.
When she asked me why, I replied,
"Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"
And that's how the fight started.....
My wife and I were watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while we were in bed.
I turned to her and said, 'Do you want to have Sex?'
'No ,' she answered.. I then said,
'Is that your final answer?'
She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying, 'Yes ..'
So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."
And that's when the fight started...
I took my wife to a restaurant.
The waiter, for some reason, took my order first.
"I'll have the rump steak, rare, please."
He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?"
"Nah, she can order for herself."
And that's when the fight started.....
My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school
reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his
drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.
I asked her, "Do you know him?"
"Yes", she sighed,
"He's my old boyfriend.. I understand he took to drinking
right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he
hasn't been sober since."
"My God!" I said, "Who would think a person could go on
celebrating that long?"
And then the fight started...
When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife kept hinting
to me that I should get it fixed. But, somehow I always had
something else to take care of first, the shed, the boat,
making beer.. Always something more important to me. Finally she
thought of a clever way to make her point.
When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall
grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing
scissors. I watched silently for a short time and then went into
the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again
I handed her a toothbrush. I said, "When you finish cutting the
grass, you might as well sweep the driveway."
The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.
My wife sat down next to me as I was flipping channels.
She asked, "What's on the TV?"
I said, "Dust."
And then the fight started...
My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming
She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in
about 3 seconds."
I bought her a bathroom scale.
And then the fight started......
After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply
for Social Security.
The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's License to
verify my age.
I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at
home.. I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have
to go home and come back later.
The woman said, 'Unbutton your shirt' .
So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair.
She said, 'That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for
me' and she processed my Social Security application.
When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at
the Social Security office. She said, 'You should have dropped
your pants. You might have gotten disability too.'
And then the fight started...
My wife was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.
She was not happy with what she saw and said to me,
"I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you
to pay me a compliment..'
I replied, "Your eyesight's damn near perfect."
And then the fight started........
I rear-ended a car this morning...the start of a REALLY bad day!
The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!
He looked up at me and said 'I am NOT Happy!'
So I said, 'Well , which one ARE you then?'
