I used to be friend with Chuck Fipke when I still lived in Kelowna. He's the guy who started the diamond gold rush.

There is no freaking way in hell I could ever live in Iqaluit. I dont care how much money they paid me.
Life is too short to spend 9 months out of the year indoors

He earns in one month what I earn in 12. I drive an 02 Civic, he drives a Jag.

I would endure spring and summer there if I can make double of what I make here in the GTA. :)

p.s. why are you no longer friends with Chuck? :)

This was back in the 1990's. I was dating a girl who was friends with the girl he was banging behind his wife's back.
We went on double dates a few times. Out for dinner....etc.

It was kinda weird because I was in my 20's, the girls were in their early twenties, and Chuck must have been in his forties or fifties.
A lot of people thought he was her father....LOL.

Chuck was a nice guy though, always picked up the restaurant tab. But I guess thats easy when you're (at the time) a billionaire.
His wife eventually found out about the affair, filed for divorce and took him to the cleaners

Yeah, roof is missing a few shingles right now. Hope any wet weather holds off until I can climb up and replace them.

Beautiful.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
