I'll kick us off.
Future mother in law just dropped by unexpectedly this morning.
She brought Starbucks coffee and cookies.
We chatted a while.
She asked me about teaching her how to use tools and work on her car. Tomorrow she is coming back with the list of things I sent her shopping for to buy. She asked me what I was up to next today and I said well taking my puppy for a walk...well i wheelchair now...she asked to come along, we had a nice time. Before she left she hugged me and called me son...not to proud to admit I teared up.
I think it is cool that at age 55 she wants to learn car maintenance.
Great thread and idea Martin! This just might help cure our wandering tendencies as we often drift in other subject threads ... or not ...
Very touching moment and such a great start with your new family to be.
Great story. Thanks for sharing. Good to know your future seems bright.
I knew I was set with my mother-in-law when she started buying me puter Star Trek figurines for Christmas and my birthday. I was a big-time collector back in the day...
She seems cool...well they both do actually.
I understood why B turned out how she did.
B asked last night how I would feel about her quitting the waitressing job. I told her absolutely thrilled and happy as can be. She is loving her new job as a lifeguard/aquafit instructor, and will be keeping her job as a martial arts instructor. She even has medical and dental with her lifeguard job, gets paid for statutory holidays, paid vacation time yearly, can take a sick day if needed and yes be paid for it...not to mention it pays well to begin with instead of crappy pay. But with giving up her own place, to move in with me, that saves her $1400/month to. She was hardly ever there anyway, as she spent more time at my house the last few years than she did at her place.
I like that story! What a special mom-in-law! I hope you still have your collections.
Everything is coming together nicely Martin
Her mom and dad are here now working on the mother's Sorento.
B left for work about 9:30 am, her parents got here around 9:35. I asked them if they were avoiding her lol.
Just joking of course, they are amazing parents who love their children very much!
I have taught B a lot about vehicles and their maintenance the last few years, but her parents don't know crap about it. Nice to see them getting their hands dirty, and learning. She got everything on the list of parts I gave her, and more. It is actually fun teaching people stuff, and Rupert likes that every time she shows up at our house, she has a treat. Today her puppy treat was a blueberry muffin, and sausage with egg, on a bagel breakfast sandwich.
You'll soon have built a family of mechanics. Good on them for wanting to learn and ypu for the fine teaching. Btw..do you think I could arrange a play date with Rupert and snag me a delicious breakfast treat?
Rupert shares pretty good, so shouldn't be a problem.
He's a good doggie
His favorite place to lay in the shop is the sort of office niche area.

My new wood burning hot tub is on its way here.
It will be a while before I fly it up to my mountain cabin, but excited that it is on the way.
I've leased another piece of land from the government ( can't buy crown land, it is a 49 year lease, I can cancel anytime with a years lease penalty owing is all. I pay a yearly lease on the land, own the cabin, soon to be cabins when number two is built this summer )
Really looking forward to that as well, the second cabin will have many changes, a lot of them from what I learned on cabin one. If this hot tub turns out to be great, I will order another one for the next cabin as well.
