    I have a basic rule, don't hike alone in areas where you could get hurt and people don't go very often. I understand trying to get away to clear your head, but limits must be made.

    We had a guy drown cliff diving here as well last weekend. He was down by Polson jumping into the Flathead River with a group of friends. He didn't come up and they found him almost 50 miles away near Missoula. It's a big river and moves faster than you think.

    Moving the clinic to a new building this morning. It's amazing how much stuff you can accumulate over 12 years. :smile:

    I have a day off today. I could do so many things and all I want to do is sleep.
  • canadjinehcanadjineh Member Posts: 5,166 Member Member Posts: 5,166 Member
    Sometimes sleep is the very best thing to do...
    This past couple days have been crazy. I worked my patrol shift, then had to wait around to get my crown put on at 7:30 this morning, then home to bed for 4 hours, then up again to take dad to the audiologist, then home to read for an hour while eating cheese and taco chips, then sleep for an hour, then a couple cups of coffee and out I go for patrol again tonight. I will have to wake up again tomorrow after 5 hours sleep to take my husband into the ortho clinic at the hospital for check up tomorrow. I need 8 or 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep, but probably won't get that til Fri night. Fri. AM we have to go for a training session for RCMP SpeedWatch. A refresher on working the fancy radar boards to remind folks to slowwww down - school will be starting in Sept again.

    That sounds like a humdinger of a schedule. Hope you have lot's more than coffee in your arsenal.

    Moved into the new building. Now I'm struggling with knowing where anything is. Seems like it keeps moving too. Someone has an idea of where they think things would be better and move stuff so every night is an adventure in finding stuff.

    I hope your 'equipment/supply' hunt is going well. Sooner or later things will settle into the spot they are meant for, lol. Still crazy busy, I actually missed an appointment this morning - it totally went out of my head, with all the work stuff I wasn't even awake at the time I needed to be there.
    We are headed to Banff for 3 nights just to not be at home at the beginning of Sept. Hopefully we won't be coming across any more a55holes like this one:

    The problem with living in red neck country is most of the wannabe cowboys think rules don’t apply to them. We saw a rodeo photo this week with zero social distancing and only five masks total in the whole grandstand that we could count. One those masks wasn’t being worn correctly. Wearing a mask with your nose uncovered is like wearing a condom with the tip cut off.

    @sufferlandrian, you need to market that on a t-shirt, lol.

    Great news, the eagle that I helped rescue about a month ago is going to be brought back home to be released on Saturday late afternoon/early evening. We aren't too sure yet of the time because she has to be driven from the raptor rescue https://owlrehab.org/ 600 km away. I just got a phone call today - that she is ready to go. I will try to remember to get some video of her being released. She was a very large bird even though she was scrawny and weak, I can't imagine how magnificent she will be now! Very excited!!

    Welcome! @karlinab1807. You'll probably be posting while we are asleep, lol. Time zone stuff. I'm in Security/Policing, sufferlandrian is a vet, and there are others in health care, hotel hospitality, and other occupations too. Things have been a bit quiet lately here, but us regulars carry on.
  • sufferlandriansufferlandrian Member Posts: 7,511 Member Member Posts: 7,511 Member
    @karlinab1807 i think you’re doing pretty good if you dropped from 9 stones to under 8 in six months! That’s impressive.

    Oh yeah! The forest fires are back. We can smoke our food by just hanging it on the clothes line. :angry:
  • canadjinehcanadjineh Member Posts: 5,166 Member Member Posts: 5,166 Member
    Our (fairly) local one is now under control, the 3700 evac alerts and orders have been rescinded. Only 1 house burnt, no one injured.
  • sufferlandriansufferlandrian Member Posts: 7,511 Member Member Posts: 7,511 Member
    We don't have any locally but with a valley that is several hours long, the smoke from other fires can funnel up the valley. The wind shifted with a cold front and now we have the nice clean air coming out of Canada. :smile:

    I hope everyone is doing OK on the Western side of the continent. I have had to wear a particulates mask at work the past several nights so I can breathe properly. Ugh....getting kinda tired of masks.....

    Finally downloaded some of the eagle release pictures from my phone. I have to edit the video clip yet as it is quite shaky (she moves so fast) and too long with her as a spot in the distance once she flew off. That will come later, when I have nothing better to do (lol.)
    The couple who brought her back home from the O.W.L. Raptor Rehab Facility 600 km away.

    Fellow on the left in khaki is the regular volunteer who was able to net and cage her at rescue.

    I looked a little wrecked in this photo...had been dealing with sciatica for several days, but I couldn't miss this.

    You can see her in the cage just before release.

    Off she flies toward one of the tall cottonwoods on the foreshore.

    I always love when these birds can be released back into the wild. The rehab group we have here got in trouble for keeping too many that should have been euthanized or released. The purpose of a rehab group shouldn't be to have pets but to get them back in the wild. If they can't, living in a cage for the rest of their life doesn't seem fair to the bird.

    It’s cold and flu season now. It’s hard to tell when someone shows up with just a cold or if it’s Covid.
