What’s Happening In Cottage Country on June 1/2023

Well, here it is June 1st, man time is sure flying by. Looking outside, things like the trees are sure putting on a show with their leaves all up to size. It’s nice to see, and along with that the perennials are also about ready to show off. Our rhubarb is ready to pull, and my lovely wife will be making us a strawberry rhubarb pie either tomorrow or the next day. I sure do enjoy them.

On another note, Highway 522 is getting busier and busier every day, with lots of tourists and campers moving around looking for places to park their rigs for a month or two. It will continue like that for the remainder of the summer.

Bug report: There are still a lot of Black Flies out there irritating folks these days, along with the mosquitoes. This heat though will get rid of a lot of them, and the dragon flies will eliminate a lot more, along with the birds helping out. There is a lot going on with Nature if you take the time to notice. The old saying is that we humans need to take more time to smell the roses is so true.

Yesterday I did go to North Bay with my wife as we had to take our car into Ford as our engine light came on again. This is the second time it happened. First time $500.00 yesterday another $500.00. $109.00 Parts and $350.00 Labour. I have to tell you, things have sure gotten out of hand nowadays when it comes to what people are charging for labour. Some things I can see are warranted for them high prices, but for other things they sure aren’t. At any rate, we humans brought it on our selves, wanting this and wanting that and going into debt to get it. Some call that progress. I won’t tell you what I call it.

After we finished up at Ford we picked up a few groceries, well I should say my wife did, I waited in the car as I am still unable to walk too far. Sitting, I am okay. Once we had our groceries and a few other things, we both got ourselves a milk shake at the Dairy Queen, and headed back home. I have to tell ya, you can’t beat a Dairy Queen Milk Shake, especially chocolate.

Today is mowing day, so I had better get going as we want to beat the heat, as it is going to get quite warm as the day moves forward. I am going to see if I can use the rider today. Not sure how that will work out.

Have a great day. GW
