Since i have another free day, I figured why not have fun and get to know people.
Because of rain...? Where I live we get 3 feet of snow and it's business as usual.
I repair Fences on farms, If it rains too much you can not set a Fence post right. Not Sure, what you do but is sounds awfully Canadian.
I'm from Vermont. I'm a retired Marine. I now do private security.
Got you, Northerner. Thanks for your service i guess? I tried to go Army because it was the only thing close. I Passed the ASVAP with a 48, But they shot me down because with a 36 inch waist and 18 inch neck i still weighed 240lb's. The Recruiter Told me i was a Big Boned S.O.B. at 5'11 my max weight allowed would be 180lb's. I have not been that light since i was 9 years old.
It's not for everybody. At least you tried to join up though. I've always been athletic, played baseball and football and was among the best in the state. My father was an Army Ranger and my mother was in the Air Force. At first I was not interested in the military so I instead went to college for meteorology. But after the events of 9/11 that's when I dropped out of college and joined the Marines. Did that for 10 years until I was honorably discharged.
I used to be athletic for a big guy, Before the Back Injury i used to play football, Soccer and Work in a Sawmill "could not afford collage" but alas being a Idiot, I dead lifted the rear end of a 2015 cub cadet riding mower with my back in a quick jerk manner. Now, i am closer to 320lbs than 240lbs but i still work out on a farm trying to do stuff some days i do not go out some i do. I would have loved to of joined, i am the first in a line of military service men and women to not participate since the 1700's. I have seen the records on Ancestry.com and i wonder what it would have been like. plus i was banking on it for Collage but i guess i waited until they added dumb regulations. I mean when a guy has 24 inch plus around upper arms all muscle There weight is going to be heavier than normal people.
I want to travel to another states tomorrow for working reasons but my relations are coming here to see me, So i'll have to postpone that
It's raining here almost every evening..
