a couple weeks ago i used the D6 9U known as the Bismark to move the sleighs around. of course the picture didn't turn out very well.




Sept 21 2018


since i fixed one dolly cart it was time to fix the other one which was a struggle having the flu. the only thing i did not screw up was the painting because i just splash it on. nobody can really tell by my painting if it was a good day or bad day.

Sept 20 2018


now today i'll post the opposite of buying in the great white north. the small bollte of advil was just under $12.00 and the big bottle about $33.00 whenwe travel oner the so-called road to the south. i guess with these small sizes nobody will be ODing on advil.


small size

Sept 19 2018


one of the joys of living at the end of the world is we order lots online and through sales flyers. the wheels for the dolly cart were on sale and looked to be the right size. the only problem was they were extra large in size but i preformed magic and made them fit. no wonder i don't order a mail order bride because she might come extra large too.


dolly carts

Sept 18 2018


i had the flu for 8 days and i have never been that sick since i drank proffessionally 8 years ago. on the road to recovery and got the 24 angle irons bolted on yesterday which all the holes lined up. now that was quite a surprise.


camp tools

Sept 10 2018


grandma's buick arrived in the Kingdom for scrapping and for scrapping cars the gas tank must be removed. i was very surprised to find the gas filler on the back under the plate holder. this car must be the last year to the gas filler on the back.



Sept 09 2018


started off with rain in the morning which is normal for the rainy season at this time of the year. then by evening it was +16c and sun shine with 2 million sand flys enjoying my fresh blood. it was a fun day riding my mini Hoe getting the yard organized.


Hoe trees


Sept 08 2018


my yearly treats from ireland arrived in the mail yesterday. only 2 weeks to tavel across the big puddle of water. then xena took 1/2 before the picture was taken. oh well.




Sept 07 2018


once again as a trained welder i'm working with wood. oh well money is money.




now this ford has lots of tire clearance and no more destoried tires or springs.



Sept 06 2018


just another day in the Kingdom with changing broken springs on this 2012 ford f250. not a big job except the last mechanic put the spring in backward then welded the small bolt in the big diameter hole on the frame bracket.


wf springs


plus the truck even had this spider enjoying the warm sun shine too.

Sept 05 2018


being colour blind, i decided to attempt to fix a non working wobble light with the help from youtube. i was able to figure out the problem and re-assemble the light with no extra parts left over. youtube makes me look and feel smarter.



Sept 04 2018


i got the tires on the Screaming Ford a little muddy putting the southern white van trailer in the line up of trailers. oh well, it is the rainy season.



Sept 03 2018


the storage van from the south arrived over the so-called road which was very muddy with all the rain.




now we can empty out this one van trailer was a little full with rocks in pails so we stacked them high until the white storage van arrived this weekend.




no matter how careful you are, the top pallet came crashing down. oh well a little exercise for me cleaning up the mess and fire wood for the wood stove too. now everything has been sorted and organized in the storage trailer that arrived. we are offically ready for winter now.



Sept 02 2018


the box on the 97 ford truck came from a toytoa underground truck that was used at the mine here in WHOville. the only problem is i used it as a scrap metal tub for 15 years before deciding to mount it on the 97 ford because the factory ford box was rusted out. with it being the rainy season, i decided a nice warm dry project in the shop woul dbe making doors for the shelves in the box,




of course nothing is straight or correct but the paint makes it look good for some reason.




Sept 01 2018


since i drilled 100 holes, i needed 100 bolts to fill the 100 holes and they came 1200kms from the south over night by canada post. it is the long weekend so on tuesday the fun begins on installing the 100 bolts and the heavy angle irons.




Aug 31 2018


another day of rain in the Kingdom so i had to work on a 6" valve to make it fit. oh well it was nice and warm in the shop with the wood stove going.




Aug 30 2018


another day of rain in the Kingdom so i drilled more 1" holes in the angle irons. it is a fun job but someone has to do it.




Aug 29 2018


the second set of playground equipment seems to be sitting in prime florida real-estate. the last thing i want to do is ruin a good pair of walmart velcro shoes in the mud.




so it was back to the Kingdom to get started drilling 100 of these 1" diameter holes which is going to take a while.




Aug 28 2018


it was too wet to work on playground equipment so i ended up at the school riding my Hoe to straighten out the guard rail for the car plug ins.


school Hoe

the finished product which is close enough because they are only going to hit the guard rail again and again.

school done

Aug 27 2018


it was my lucky day yesterday with making a quick video of the Screaming Ford and mounting new tail lights on the grey tanker trailer with the wiring correct. the joys of being colour blind.

Aug 26 2018 second updatee


the Screaming Ford in the Kingdom at +4c, yes summer is over for us.



Aug 26 2018


it was a boring day in the Kingdom yesterday so here a picture and the link to the fun on the winter roads.






Aug 25 2018


we had to hand shovel the cement in to the electric mixer then add the water to make the cement to anchor the legs. it was a fun day and we beat the rain by only minutes but we did it. now to move down to the lake to build the second playground set.




Aug 24 2018


on the play ground equipment, the staff cut and built the wooden sonotube boxes for the next play ground set up down by the lake. the we have been havely lately, i think summer is now over with less then 5 hot days we usually get.



Aug 23 2018


boring day on the play ground equipment so here is a picture of the Screaming Ford when i was moving the black 53 foot trailer around august long weekend.


black trailer

Aug 22 2018


after a week of waiting for the sonotube that you pour the concrete in for the leg supports we ended up making our own. we whipped up some out of 2x10 boards which was a lot of work but we got it done. the joys of living at the end of the world.



Aug 21 2018


it was another day of rain off and on but we did get some work done on the play ground equipment.

Aug 20 2018


between the rains yesterday we got the 3rd tower up. today will be another day of trail and error.

Aug 19 2018


it was a fun day riding my mini Hoe on a job site digging in rock dirt. the post hole auger failed, the bigger backhoes failed but the mini Hoe worked prefect.


hoe digging


we are only 1/2 done the assembley of this play ground set that came with no instructions. oh well.




Aug 18 2018


of course it is friday night and we are loading up the mini Hoe for a job.




this will be the first job for the big 10" bucket i imported from the far east.


10 bucket

Aug 17 2018


back in the month of may, we used the 50 year old loader and the new mini Hoe to centre a pallet of pails. once again, the mini Hoe is handy to have.




Aug 16 2018


our shippment of water from the south arrived. yes we are surrounded by water and have to buy water because fish have sex in the lake. the town of WHOville's fancy new water treatment plant doesn't work because the people who designed it forgot fish have sex in the lake. we pay $1210.40 a year for town water then have to buy water to drink on top of that. living at the end of the world is not cheap any more.

a few of my Kingdom Followers have been asking what we do with all these totes that show up in the pictures i have been posting. our secret job is taking care of the assests of an austrailan company which plays with rocks. the totes and semi van trailers make a great way to store things which can be found in 4 feet of snow and -45c temperatures too.




Aug 14 2018


yesterday we used the Screaming Ford to move a tanker trailer around the Kingdom.

on paper the plan was simple to get rid of the factory cock pit cab which is too small for me and mount a 1946 chevy cab. first thing was to cut the cab off the rotten old floor.


MB floor


i have owned the cab for 31 years and have not had a use for it in 10 years so it was time to make it use-full again.


MB back


once the doors are on and a nose on the front the cab will look good on the muskeg buggie.

Aug 10 2018


it was a quick trip over the so-called road to get some orange juice and other supplies. there has been no OJ in the town of WHOville in the last 30 days. OJ is the only thing i drink or eat that is healthy. the 97 ford had no problems at +30c heat.

ih cats back together

Aug 06 2018


"they" say to buy a farm trctor motor for my cat because they are cheap and dime a dozen. of course i did not get the memo on having to buy the adaptor kit to make them fit the cat. yesterday it was a little welding and grinding to make an adaptor plate.




the trick was to weld it so it did not warp to badly.




Aug 05 2018


we bought a 53 foot van trailer in winnipeg and had it filled up with southern purchases. not sure what model this bobmardier muskeg buggie is but it will be fun.
