What’s Happening In Cottage Country on June 27/2023

Good Morning!

Well, we finally got some much-needed rain in our area, which in turn got rid of most of the smoke that was in our midst. The rain did help, but the winds switching from the east to the west helped even more. And it should be noted, that forest fires have been taking place for as long as our earth has been around. And on top of that, the fires are a valuable asset in how the trees and plants reproduce and stay healthy. Now with us humans it is a different story, but if our earth is to survive we have to learn to live with these things as much as we don’t like it. And truth be told, there isn’t much we can do about it. Nature has her own way of taking care of business, and we humans aren’t going to change her way of doing things. Being a farmer for a good number of years, I have learned that.

Highway 522 is getting busier every day. I say that as more folks are dropping by our small store seeking out that special treasure, and we have lots of them. It is nice to see and chat to folks.

Bug Report: Everything is good in that department these days, other than some mosquitoes. And once the sun comes back out, they will be less noticed.

On another note, my wife and I went to North Bay yesterday, picking up some supplies and groceries. I have to tell you, things are sure expensive these days, makes me shake my head at what some are charging for items. And the thing is, most of the high prices aren’t warranted. As I always say, once they have the price up there, they don’t bring it back down. It seems it’s all about making the all mighty dollar these days, not what is good for the people.

After we picked up what we needed we had our lunch in our car and headed on home taking in what nature had to offer which was quite a lot really. It seems that no matter how many times we go to town, we always see something new.

Have a great day! GW
