Moved to Chemainus BC. Still on the Island 

June 8, 2012 we moved 90k south to the small town of Chemainus so I could be closer to my new computer programming job at the Municipality of North Cowichan.  It is a lovely ocean side community. Instead of driving 100k to work every day I am now only 14k away.  What a pleasure!

The only thing missing at our new home location is having a garage for my woodworking and guitar building hobbies so that is now my first priority.

Sherry is going to be learning a lot more about gardening because we have about 50 different flowers, shrubs and trees, etc in the yard.

Only a 10 minute walk to the ocean where our dog jumps in and is swimming instantly.

Kage getting a knee operation 

   Our 2 year old German Shepherd (Kage) is having a knee operation in a few days.  Poor Guy!  After the operation he will not be able to navigate the stairs to our house so yesterday I built him a 24 foot ramp.

German Shepherds have quite a history of have hip problems and he has that too.

After surgery and 5 weeks of rest, Kage will start a swimming program to build up strength without any load bearing.
