Greetings to those who have missed me, or at least have missed my input

Summer is over and it's back to the grind... Not going to lie, it was nice taking a breather...Sometimes I just need some me time...

So here's the update...

I'm great...Lost some weight, set a new personal best for running (75km), started making my own wine and Mead (mixed success)... Still have most of my hair...

My family is good... My wife is pretty much the same, except happier because I've been spending more time in the real world... She's even forgiven me in record time for the two garage parties that left me far more inebriated then planned
My daughter has turned five... And is still awesome... She did her first km in the pool the week before her birthday and has progressed to 1.6km since... Is loving school and getting good reviews... Also started piano school... Pretty sure she has my musical ability (zero is a number; trust me), but she also has my stubborn competitiveness and is progressing

Work sucks... I spent the entire term last semester online, and now am doing it again... Truly hate this style of teaching.... Great new students though... Our department has increased enrollment numbers... Was supposed to go back to in person teaching today...But a sudden outbreak has launched us into a full on lockdown... I mean, the front doors to our unit are taped shut and we're only allowed to go out for testing each morning... Silly me, my garage is fully stocked with booze and BBQ gear (in preparation for lockdowns) but I had not anticipated this style lockdown... Even in Shanghai people were allowed out into their complexes.... Oh well, at least my home is well prepared....It's amazing how many people live day to day...

Summer was fun... Spent time with the family, fishing, swimming, went to he water park a lot with my daughter, played in a few badminton tournaments (and one horrid tennis tournament)...
My daughter and I had fun studying together and hanging out in our park (newly renovated and now better than ever)...

Missed the OPP and my friends here (and several who would not consider themselves my friends)... Hope all of you are in good health and joyous...

Heading to bed soon...
Looking forward to rejoining the fray tomorrow...

Cheers all🥃🥃

Nice to see you back. To be honest , I thought you might have been locked away for something that you didn't say. At any rate, it's good to see your comments. I'm glad to hear you got a lot of quality time with your family. Before you know it, your daughter will be grown and will think because she is smarter, (I figure she will be more intelligent than you, no offense), she is also wiser. Of course, we know wisdom comes only with age, so she will need your guidance.

No one's doors were ever welded shut...

Although some secondary exits were sealed off...

The doors to the units have a paper seal over them... It's a bit ridiculous, but our city has always been a bit over reactive.. .

Good to hear. Early news reports showing that must have been fake news. Hmmm. Ok I’ll bite, not surprising, now that we know the level of deception that the propaganda arm of the liberals is capable of.
