Red Ford Truck is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Thumbs up How's everyone enjoying family day?

My opinion is it's about time they got around to giving the hard working Ontario families that run the engine of the Ontario economy a day off in the dull days of February.

So what did everyone do with their Family day?

We went to Kingston for my Brothers 45th birthday Party, he's a Ford Truck guy too so I gave him a Ford Truck belt buckle and one of the Canadian Tire 1979 F150 Die Cast Trucks.

We came back same day so I could help Andy with the brakes on the 77F100, turns out he did most of the work while I was in Kingston so all that was left to do was bleed the brakes and talk about this years Ford truck show.

Rick.

Stayed at home with the Wife and our Son. Mother-in-law came over for supper. That's it.

Well I think that would qualify as a government sanctioned way to spend family day.

Seeing as how you're related to all concerned in one fashion or other

You can't be doing too much snow plowing this winter so how are you spending your time Matt?

Just dreaming about snow. Last year I put almost 200 hours on the tractor. This year I have about 50.

I have been helping my Dad redo his kitchen. Totally gutted it and the dining room and made it one big kitchen. Took about 6 weeks.

Been taking a bunch of time off to spend with my wife and son at home. Probably took 3 weeks off total (not all at once).

I put up some drywall in the 4th bedroom, after cleaning all the unnecessary tools and building supplies out of that room (just kind of got chucked there while working in other rooms). Also took my kids to the park and played on the slides.

truckfarmingcanuck is starting off with a positive reputation.
We were skating on a rink that I made up at the cottage, and filled in the dull moments with some sliding. The kids loved both....

18" of ice for any who may be interested.
