Morning Chat, Sept. 8/2021

Good Morning. Well … in spite of what our weather experts were telling us, we are having some sunshine here in Port Loring, Ontario this morning. And I have to say looking out at the shadows on our front lawn, it sure looks appealing, or in our old tongue … down right nice. Highway 522 has slowed down some, but not Highway 11. The reason I know this is, my wife and I had to make a trip to town yesterday, and it was almost bumper to bumper with cars, trucks, campers, you name it. And that was heading north. And on top of all that, the traffic in North Bay was unbelievable. We thought that with the kids going back to school, it would be a good time to pick up some much-needed clothes. But that was the wrong prediction. There are around 56000 people in North Bay and I don’t think one of them works, as I think we saw everyone that lives there. The stores were packed. The good news was that most folks were keeping their distance. But even still, you are taking a chance by going into these places. My wife and I have stayed out of them for almost two years, but there comes a time when a person needs pants, shirts, socks and shoes, LOL. So we had to bite the bullet and go get them. We just picked the wrong day. Anyway things worked out, we ate our lunch in our car, taking in what the city had to offer and came on home. All in all, we had a good day. A long, expensive day, but a good day. On the expensive part, things sure cost a lot these days. I can’t see how some of these stores can justify the increase. Like gas for our cars. We live in a country with more natural resources than anyone else in the world, and we Canadians pay the most. Ridiculous really. Today I will be painting our front door as it has been bugging me awhile now. So after I have my morning bowl of cereal, I will get at it. It will be a good job to get out of the way, as I can have the windows in the house open and along with that, I will be giving my old back a bit of a rest, as it isn’t up to par yet. With that, I will chat to you tomorrow if things goes to plan. Have a great day and stay safe, especially with so many people out and about. GW

Fishing Times; Today my old weather stick is saying that the best times to be out there fishing will be between 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM and then again from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM. I give it a 3-Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. Good Luck!
