Good Morning!. It is looking like another really nice day for us here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning without hardly a cloud in the sky. Temperatures are sitting at 18.4 C | 65.12 F. This is the weather I enjoy. Highway 522 is busy these days, which is becoming a norm. It will likely remain this way for the remainder of the summer. I also see and hear that thousands of people are selling their homes in and around the large cities and moving to the country. I suspect it is the fear that this virus has more of a chance to get to them. I can’t say I blame them. Actually I think they are smart. Prices of homes say in our area and surrounding areas have always been on the low side, but now they are rising fast and I think they will continue to rise in price as time moves forward. I also think that people now are finding out that city life isn’t the place to be. Where there isn’t as many people is the place to be. On another note my veggie gardens are growing leaps and bounds and my wife is getting ready to do up some relish and sweet pickles for winter. Should be tasty. While she is doing that, I am going to be working in our store, as we are re-modifying it from a store to a cottage. We will still have a store, but in a different location on our property. But not this year, as we are keeping it closed. We might be closed to people coming in to see the store right now, but my wife is taking orders for signs and her paintings. Actually she has been quite busy this year with folks wanting her paintings and things. Nice to see. Also it is nice to see … that a few here in town are supporting us with our store being closed. Means a lot and helps a lot. The reason we are keeping the store itself closed is that it is small and there is no way we can do social distancing properly. Also we sell a lot of flutes and they need to be played and right now I don’t want anyone blowing into them. Not a good idea. But in saying that I still sell them out of the house but you can’t play them until you own them. I should also mention that if you want a flute, custom sign or a painting you can get in touch with us at [email protected] Or if in the area drop by and we can chat from a distance LOL. So with that, I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife on the front porch, and will then get to work. Take care and stay safe. GW

Today my old weather stick is saying that fishing won’t be the greatest. I give it a 2 Star Rating out of 5 for catching some. The winds today are coming in from the South, which is pretty good for fishing, so things should pick up in the next couple days. Good Luck and Stay Safe!
