Just curious, why don't you use your N95 masks?Following the rules. On our dog walk today, we wore our homemade masks Jean, my wife, made, not the N95 I have that I use in the shop. Sometimes people don't keep 6 feet distance, so we cross the street or walk into the street.
Guy in a Pimped out Chrysler, playing over driven speakers that were making the windows vibrate, turned the sound down, rolled his window down, so I could hear him shout something derogatory about the masks.
These types, tend to be afraid of big dogs and aren't likely to approach. (They don't know she's a big teddy bear.) But it made me think I better wear my mask whenever I am out in support of people who really should be wearing them.

Bob, I don’t believe that you are a true Canadian. I have never seen you once say “eh”. ?Remember the UK/US glossaries in Haynes manuals? Canadians use an odd mixture of terms, some from each side. It seems to me that we use more US terms than Australians and you use more UK terms than we do.
Canada & Australia have a lot in common but we probably have more in common with New Zealand because both are English speaking countries that live in the cultural shadow of much larger (population wise*) English speaking neighbours. Because of that Canadians tend to understand US culture a lot more than Americans understand ours (unless they live near enough to the border to watch our TV). But with more international dialog on forums like this we are all exposed to more of our differences & similarities and given the opportunity to learn from them.
Most people don't remember these days but one of the main reasons for Confederation (the joining together of the British colonies that became Canada) was fear that the America might try to invade us again like it did during the War of 1812. Because of that there is a strong thread in Canadian culture of celebrating the ways we are different from (better than?) the US, one of which is that we know the proper way to spell words that Yanks (to us this applies to all of you, not just those from one area) are not taught to spell correctly.
And I won't even start on why our Beer is better (every Canadian knows why American beer is like making love on a dock)
I did tonight, under the fabric mask. Used as covers over the K95s, helps K95s last longer.Just curious, why don't you use your N95 masks?
We don't normally write it down but when we speak we just drop it in whenever we feel we need an extra syllableBob, I don’t believe that you are a true Canadian. I have never seen you once say “eh”. ?
Yoopers write it down because if it's worth saying it's worth writing. Some of the other words that go with it may look like hieroglyphics but Aino, Toivo and all those Lahti's say eh.
Actually, most of the stuff made by the large commercial breweries on both sides of the border is pretty worthless while the stuff from the smaller operations tends to be much better. I've been making do with store bought the last few years but I was planning to start making my own this year with ingredients (kits at least in the beginning) from a you-brew but that may not happen for a while.Okay, maybe you’re a little Canadian. ? As far as American beer, you need to try one from one of our millions of micro breweries. I find I really like the micro brews from the small towns the best!
What's yard work. Still doing 50 hrs a week on road. Went to the cabin w/ my 2 lady's on Sat/Sun. Did not interact w anyone. Wife hiked with the dog. Daughter and I were stay at home. Did some ice and snow removal. Have 2 broken vent pipes on roof. S--t happens.Doing more yardwork than I ever have before, find myself going out in the yard and just standing there, or wandering around, looking for things needing doing, realized how much I have let go over the years, raked all the thatch, picked up all the little sticks, got out the leafblower and re-did the back yard, might mow for the first time later today, could clean the gutters again, lay down more mulch, this is getting crazy.
It's in my Sig. MZ ETZ251. I can't say enough about my experiences and where I have been with this bike or how far. So I won't even start. I can just say. The DDR knew how to make bikes out of material that lasted..what make/model is that bike? looks like it's seen its share of miles too
