Old tractor post

Sometimes stuff is on your doorstep. I keep an eye out for old tractors. These ones I found just on the outskirts of where I live. Someone has a nice line of them in their farmyard.

Edmonton, Alberta September 14, 2017

View from the Capilano Bridge on Wayne Gretzky Drive. As an aside I would like to see roads named after actual heroes rather than sports heroics. As a further aside I always thought that some small town somewhere could gain some recognition by holding some kind of contest where the winner would get a street named after them.

I lived close to Edmonton for about twenty years. It was fine then. I do not like going there now. Edmonton is a pain trying to get a lot of places on a north/south basis. It is getting better. What I dread about going there is the unreal amount of road construction. If they ever finish it should end up looking like a nice place.

Since it is Friday

Duty calls

Would love to escape on a pointless weekend road trip. Instead I will be visiting my mother. She broke her foot in late July and has been in a cast ever since. If nothing else it has kept her from driving and made the roads safer where she lives. She should be out of the cast by the end of this month. This weekend will be tending to whatever she needs done. That still does not mean you can rob my place when I am not home. Besides I have nothing.

I try to visit her at least once a month. I think she would like visits to be daily although she tends to forget that is not really possible when she is about three and a half hours away driving time.

Wild, wildlife

Not that wild at all actually. They were not doing much other than hanging out. This was along Highway 40 in Kananaskis Country in Alberta on September 17, 2017. I have yet to travel this section of highway and not see wildlife. They are a bit of a menace as small herds were blocking the highway at three different times during the day. It is a scenic highway and this is a route you should not travel if you are in a hurry. You might miss something.
