Its a couple of weeks ago I did blacksmithing for the first time and it was an awesome experience's so I thought I would chare it with you guys!
Since I was a kid I always wanted to try blacksmithing. My current boss is an veteran blacksmith with over 30 years of experience, and during one of the Western development museum event days he asked me if I was interested in helping him out in the blacksmith and learn some stuff. Of course I said yes!
2 days we ran the blacksmith it was super fun but much harder than I expected. People think that you simply put steel in a flame take it out and hammer on it for a while till a sword is created. Well my reality was that I was struggling more with how to grab the steel and hold it so I can hammer it.
It does sound easy but concentrating on how to hold it and hammering it right and all that really quick (you have roughly 30s before you have to put it back in the flame) is a lot of things you have to multi task at the same time.
Well I ended up making my self a little hammer. Not beautiful but with a bit of grinding it turned out nice :)
Blacksmithing is one of the things I will continue learning in the future.

Well finally after 3 weeks of hard work and a lot of painting we finished our "Dino cake" for this years parade in Battle ford SK.
The theme for the parade was "birthday" and since the western development museum has a dinosaur exhibit going on right now we decided to build a Dino that runs trough a birthday cake!
I can't really say that this is something that a heritage carpenter would do but The parade it self went awesome and the kids loved it so I'm happy!
Well after one year of owing my car I decided to finally tackle my rust problem... Turns out it is worse than I thought it was going to be.
Pretty much every thing is rusted away and where nothing is, its hard to to weld something on right?
I think I did the best I could for today and tomorrow I'm going to do the fine tuning and eventually it will be covered by plastic siding anyways.

|Every time BC had the ball the whole stadium started to "BOOOoooo" really loud!|
|Mascot Of the Rough Riders|
|2 hours before the game started|
|At the beginning of the the game, nuts how many people came.|
|For the road trip we got a rantle car for free for 2 days, a Ford Fusen 2012. Drieves awesome and is so good on gas, to Regina and back plus some driving around we spend roughly 90$ (900-1000Km we drove)|
|At the film set for "Corner Gas" never watched it but people say its really good|
|Not only did we had perfect weather all weekend long, we also drove along a beautiful high way with miles and miles of those fields. Everything is so flat and you are able to see so far.|
|On the way Home we stopped by this lovely Village called "DrinkWater" quite the name... Well we took it to the test!|
|Great food and awesome looking place!|
