Morning Chat June 10/2021

Good Morning! It’s a cloudy day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. And boy has it been warm. Actually down right hot there for a few days. Today things have cooled down a lot with the temperature waking up sitting at 14.2 C | 57.56 F. It will warm up quite a bit as the day moves forward … and if we are lucky we might see some rain through the night. And we sure need it! The good news is that the cold temperatures we had earlier last month, and now the major hot temperatures, sure did a number on the blackflies and mosquitoes. But in saying that we aren’t without some pesky parasites, as now the horse and deer flies are annoying us humans along with the animals. They love the heat, especially the deer flies. And the worst part is once they find you, they don’t leave you alone. They seem to get at my hands a lot, and when they bite you know it. LOL Anyways what can you do? We live in their neck of the woods. It’s the price we pay for living in paradise. Highway 522 is busy these days with lots of campers and things moving around in our area. There are also lots of new faces when going to the hardware store or to get the mail. Sign of the times, I suppose. Another thing I have noticed is, that a lot of those new faces aren’t as friendly as they used to be. I am not sure why that is. Maybe it’s the type of people they are, the virus that is among us, what ever, it makes me wonder. Some you even say … It’s a hot one, huh? They just give you the look and say nothing. Oh well, maybe I am just getting old. At any rate, I am starting to miss what our town was like years ago, when you went to the store, knew everyone and heck … sometimes you would be chatting for a half hour or so with different folks about all kinds of things. It kind of made a fellers’ day. On another note, my wife and I have been really busy these days, that is the reason for not being here on my Blog that much. We have been working on our new shower house for our cottage to be. I have to tell you, it has sure been a job. And not a cheap job with the price of things nowadays. But I suppose I am lucky in a lot of ways, as I do have the knowledge and equipment to do these things myself, which has saved me a bundle. With that bit of information under your hat, I am off for a bowl of cereal and my lovely wife and I will then get to mowing our grass. It isn’t long in some areas but in others is in need of a cutting. I hope my mowers run good today. It seems my old equipment is a challenge to keep running these days. Hmm …. something like myself I suppose. Anyways, you all take care and stay safe. GW
