“Harvesting the Wisdom of October 22/2023: What’s Happening Around Our Cottage Country Home”

Good Morning, everyone!

Starting things off, it should be noted that as the days grow shorter and the leaves begin to fall, there’s a distinct chill in the air that serves as a reminder – winter is steadily approaching. Meanwhile, a frigid front is gathering strength in Alaska and the Yukon Territory, And if that doesn’t give you a shiver of what’s to come, just take a look at what is happening around us in nature, as the birds, plants and trees-they’re all trying to tell us something. One just has to take a few minutes and listen.

Highway 522 is still very quiet, but there are a lot of hunters in the bush lately, so care should be taken if out exploring the area or traveling through it.

On another note, yesterday my lovely wife and I made a trip to North Bay as it was our son’s birthday. While there, we picked up some more supplies and then took him out for lunch at Casey’s there in town. We had a good time, enjoyed our meal along with a bottle of White Zinfandel Wine. I have to say being a farmer for many years and growing all different kinds of grapes, it is one of the best, especially while enjoying a meal. After we finished, we dropped our boy off back at his apartment and headed on home, taking in what nature had to offer. Which was a lot, as the leaves that still remain on the trees were sure putting on a show. The older trees have shed most of theirs, but them young’uns tend to hang on to theirs a mite longer. It’s just the way the young are, always trying to be a different.

“Wishing you the strength of a mighty buffalo and the wisdom of an old storyteller.” GW
