What’s Happening in Cottage Country on June 16/2023

Good Morning!

It’s a cloudy morning here in Cottage Country, but in saying that, things are about to warm up. And it will remain warm now for most of the summer. And on top of all that, we should be seeing a lot more sunshine, which is what us humans need to survive and stay healthy. There is nothing better a person can do than to get your vitamin D3 every day. Fifteen minutes is all you need to replenish your body.

Highway 522 is starting to get busy a bit more every day. We are also getting a lot of new folks dropping by our small store saying hello and picking up a few things. Makes our day seeing folks.

Bug Report: The Black Flies are pretty well gone now for the year, but the mosquitoes are out in full force. Once the sun gets to where it stays warm all day, it will get rid of a lot of them. They need damp, warm, shady places to survive. The Deer Flies aren’t all that bad yet, but they will be around for the remainder of the summer.

On another note, my wife and I did manage to get our grass cut yesterday, and after sitting down a few times I did get our weed eating done out front of our house along the boulevard. I can’t stand looking at it when it gets out of hand. It’s a job that a lot doesn’t do around these parts, but in reality it gives your home that finished look.

My old mower though is acting up, but I guess I can’t complain as it is an old Roper. It was here on the property when we bought the place 20 years ago, so I would say it has to be close to being 35–40 years old. I guess we are going to have to buy a new one. I was hoping we could hold off one more year, as putting the new roof on the house a couple of weeks ago set us back a bit. Unless someone out there has a good used one that runs good. You never know if you don’t ask. The price of a new John Deer is over $3000.00 now and that is for the small 110. Makes me shake my head, how they can justify that price. At any rate, there isn’t much one can do about it.

With that, I am off for a bagel that my lovely wife is making me, and will then see what the day has in store. I never know these days. It kind of depends on how my body feels.

Have a good day. Make it a good day. GW
