Happy Father’s Day…

BBQ Pin-upFor all you Dad’s…

As for me? I’m cleanin the house.

K has a torn rotator cuff so I’m the entire domestic hygiene crew.

Pip is supervising, while napping.

    My sympathy to Kathy. I tore mine two years ago. It took about four months before I could comfortably use my right arm again with minimal twinges of pain.

    • Ouch, they tell K that 6 mos. to a year of disciplined physio may do the trick.

      • Clink9

        The physio does work well. I was 6 months to a year for mine.

        • K is disciplined so I am certain she will benefit from the regimen.

          • Justin St.Denis

            My best to K, BCF 😉

  • Martin B

    You do have good taste in pin-ups, BCF.

    Hope K gets better soon.

    Damn, a torn rotator cup.
    How’d that happen?
    I thought that was usually a baseball injury.

    Get better soon K

    • 2 ways it can happen evidently, one as you pointed out a sudden event or as is the case in K’s situation it deteriorates over time until all of a sudden – WHAM.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Poor gal!
        I wish her well.

    Pip, l’inspecteur des travaux finis.

  • Merry Father’s Day!

  • You’re cleanin house? As always an inspiration BCF, reminding me to get back to unplugging the drain in my bathtub on Father’s Day. I won’t hear from my kids today because I never do. So I may as well get back to killing the “monster” in my drainpipe.

    Already broke a brand new plumbing snake trying. Can’t imagine what the blockage is, but I’m kinda thinking that Wynne’s anti-family bullshit may have crept into the Toronto sewage system. It’s the least I can do as a father on Father’s Day. 😉

    • That’s toxic sludge be careful!

      • Hydrochloric acid did the trick last time. This time I’m using sulfuric acid. But chemical warfare may not be sufficient if it’s Winnie’s pooh — may require a bunker-buster bomb.

        • Brenda

          You wouldn’t have any large trees growing near your sewage lines, would you? Roots got into mine and sent a torrent of sludge bubbling up through the drains.

          • I only wish. Unfortunately I live in an apartment. Would gladly give it up for a house and real property, nasty roots and all!

          • Update: the sulfuric acid isn’t working. Hydrochloric is better. I once did an experiment with hydrochloric acid — dropped an aluminum nail into a jar full and watched the nail completely dissolve before my eyes. Powerful stuff — maybe that’s why I can’t find it around anymore.

          • Minicapt
          • Thanks. Muriatic — didn’t know it was synonymous with hydrochloric.

          • Minicapt

            Glad it helped.


          • I’ll ask for it specifically when I go to the hardware store. “Hydrochloric” is probably an obsolete term.

    To all the great Dads out there ….

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    Happy Father’s day to all the dads, especially *me*.

  • Waffle

    Regards to K. Hope she heals soon. And don’t get fooled by that cat napping inspector. They always sleep with one eye open.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Father’s Day always leaves me feeling a little empty. My kids are great and all that, but I always remember my own Dad who died when I was barely 16 years old. An awful time for a boy to lose his father. It is one of those things that I do not think I ever got over………

  • Malcolm Y

    Yeah I was wondering what she would be doing to get that injury. Heaving a vase at someone? Typing furiously? Pounding on a voodoo doll of Wynne?
