Thank you so much!
I didn't know we were neighbours! I'm in SW Ontario about an hour from Toronto.
I actually grew up in London (Ontario) and am now living in a pretty small town. There are no jobs, apartments are so over-priced that some young people work 3 jobs just to pay for rent and groceries.

I did know that you had met up with Marty's dad, but wasn't aware of what you both were working on. I really appreciate you taking the time to explain this, and will admit that I'm truly impressed with everything you're (both) doing.

Oh, I agree about the despicable treatment of our first nation communities. I wish our government would try the whole "charity begins at home" and spend some money on our people, especially the kids.

(I apparently have to function today so will be lurking while I get ready for 'real world' activities. Will keep checking back, am not ignoring anybody!!)

I used to live in london and still go quite often to visit family! How old are you if you dont mine me asking?
I used to live on Adelaide st N, Pond Mills Rd, Deveron Cres and Kipps Lane and went to CCH highschool there.
Then my mom sent me to Thunder Bay....Been stuck here since lol.

That's hilarious...I know all those streets well.
I went to Westminster High School, lol.

It would be more likely that I would know your mom, my kids are 33, 28 & 28.


For the last dozen years in London we lived just north of Southdale Rd, not quite in the White Oaks subdivision but fairly close. I sold real estate briefly, you wouldn't recognize my name...but I had a condo listing on Pond Mills Rd.
We relocated before the kids went to school so I've been gone for some time.
Like you, I'm always back in London for various reasons.

(If we're gonna share any more private info we should use private messages, eh? We might know some of the same people, it's a small world.)

Hey Timely!


I already went head-to-head with Mason, lol. (it's in his Softball thread)


Yeah, I guess that caffeine kick was a little obvious. It's starting to wear off now, sadly.
How are things down under?
jacy


P.S. I'm logging off to go pay bills (drink coffee, chew gum and kick ass). I hope everyone is having a great day and I will be back later.

Hope you are looking after yourself ...
Much too easily overlooked when you are responsible for others basic well being.

Hope you are getting an equal measure of giggles Jace !

Did you hear that the Irish had planned to send a space ship to the Sun !

They were warned that the Ship would burn up .

The response ...

" It's OK ... we're sending him at night. "

My IT is also a cataclysmic buttock invasion, but at least I can walk and talk, breathe and eat, then excrete. There are worse situations to live in.

The conversation I have just had with my ex about my son was... interesting.

I may have to get a blood sample taken. My boy has Aspergers Autism, ADHD, ODD, and some other outlying issues. My ex's other kids have a range of problems, from TWO of them having cleft lip and palette, right through one of them having pica (the desire to consume non-nutritive substances), and the other two having other behavioural problems and God alone knows what else.

There is a possibility that these issues are genetic, a result of either partial deletion of the 15q chromosome, or possibly FXS (Fragile X Syndrome). In any case, a genetic test will be necessary for myself, my ex, and our boy, as well as for my ex's hubby and their offspring, in order to root out what is going on. The incidence of variance in my ex's children, leads her to suspect that she may have some sort of genetic fault herself, an unhelpful mutation in some regard or another.

If this does turn out to be the case, then this will allow certain treatments and intervention methods to be opened up to her family, as the children grow, not to mention making it easier to codify for medical and local government purposes, the precise nature of their various divergence from norms, in terms of their health status, as well as greasing the wheels allowing them to access benefits or state assistance in certain regards. An interesting time.

And as for everything else in my life? What can I say... the crap sandwich might be broken, but its all I have and I have no idea how to fix it. Business is crap, love life is crap, still got no progress to show for the last decade of spit and determination, but I am still here, so there is at least some potential.

Good morftereven, Shedisans!

a reply to: Blue Dude
Man, I read your story and just thought to myself, "How do I reply to that? Yeah, I got nothin'."
What a difficult road you've had. I believe we all have different burdens to bear in this life, and to be clear, I don't believe anyone's burdens are necessarily heavier than others'. I think it is how we respond to them that reveals who we truly are. I really admire the fact that you don't seem to have given up, or become bitter. You're still fighting, that says a lot. I really love our intrepid Mayor Night Star's signature line:
"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes, courage is that small voice at the end of the day that says: 'I will try again tomorrow.'"

I might just be calling you Blue Warrior from now on.

Welcome to the Shed, Groot! As others have said, cool avatar!

Yay! One of each, please.

Great writing, Kaelci!

a reply to: WalkInSilence
You know what's funny is that I almost always type it "grey" at first but for some unknown reason always go back and change it. I wonder if somehow I'm actually British. Switched at birth? Mandela effect?

a reply to: TrueBrit
Hello, TrueBrit - don't think we've officially been introduced. I've seen your posts - you're sort of famous around ATS, I'm not! LOL

I have a strange compulsion to ask: is there an evil twin named "FalseBrit" that we should be wary of?



a reply to: Macenroe82
*Shep sits back listening to the discussion*
Mac, Marty, Jacy - fascinating stuff.
Carry on, don't mind me.

a reply to: Macenroe82
Thunder Bay? I've been there. Swimming meet when I was a kid - I'm from Minnesota.
Beautiful country up that way, if I recall correctly. I love the north shore of Lake Superior.

Hey Prairie,
Yup, Tbay is right on the Minn. Border.
I used to work security at the Casino just across the border in Grand Portage Minn.
Its a 30 min drive from town, nice little spot for a get away now and then.

I am so behind in here and leaving soon to go out with my Sister. I'm going back to catch up now. I just want to say to everyone that I love you all and will be back later.

Sorry guys. I was enjoying my morning when work jumped in and ripped me right outta The Shed

I hope to be back soon!

a reply to: Macenroe82

Nice - I was just up in Grand Portage last fall, specifically to hike the namesake. I think I remember that casino. It's near the ranger station, isn't it? Like, just a 1/2 mile down the road near a truck stop, right?

Lots of good parks and hiking in the Arrowhead. We hit three different trails including part of the Grand Portage. I'd like to go back and do the whole thing - camp up at Fort Charlotte and maybe even canoe on the river up there.

I'm sure there's a ShedLaw against that sort of thing?
Does the Real World have NO morals?

a reply to: Gordi The Drummer

Erm, no Gordi, many times I feel the real world does NOT have any morals. Common sense, wisdom, compassion, forgiveness...argh.

I'll stay in the Shed, thanks. Donut? Mug of stout?

Oh, stout donuts! There's got to be a recipe for that somewhere...

ETA: Oh heck yeah! Here we go!!!
edit on 4-19-2017 by PrairieShepherd because: Dark chocolate stout donuts with Bailey's glaze!!!

Good day to Night, Jacy, Gimme and all other Shedlings here today.

Decaf only does so much to help me get going but I'm trying.


Macenroe - I'm not as young as my avatar guy. Next month I'll be 55 years old. Shed have been an interesting place to visit. I'm impressed with meeting someone who will be giving a TED talk.

TrueBrit - Nice to find you here at the Shed. Best wishes with family matters.
