Man, we had 8 weeks in before we had our little bros (29). I don't know who the guy is, but he'll be from Manitoba somewhere.

I would say:
The weather out there today is hot and shitty with continued hot and shitty in the afternoon. Tomorrow a chance of continued crappy with a pissy weather front coming down from the north. Basically, it's hotter than a snake's ass in a wagon rut.


But then Pete would say something like:
First of all, don't make fun of the weather here, and don't say the weather is the same all the time here. Because it's not. In fact, it's two degrees colder today than yesterday.


So maybe I'll just be quiet...oops, too late! :twisted: [/quote]

I'm in with London for the September intake at OPC. My physical and paper signing was this morning. I'm still a little numb, I don't think it has set in yet.

Congrats Rock... Good going. I'm sure the feeling will pass... In a few weeks.

Man, London just seems to hammering people through...Maybe I should apply. If I get hired I can tell my wife "We're goin to Ontario!", then she would laugh at me and say "Have fun!"....Damn :nono: why must wives be so cruel... ;)

Congrats Rock! Glad to hear you made it.

London physical requirement seems tougher though. But I think it's the same as Peel isn't it?

Congratulations Rock!
