Country Happenings On February 27/2024

Good Morning! Time to get moving, no time for dilly-dallying when there’s work to be done.

We are … in the midst of some rain here in cottage country, and it looks like we’re in for quite a weather mix, starting from this morning straight through tonight. We’ll be seeing some showers, maybe even some thunderstorms and then come Wednesday morning, those showers are going to turn into freezing rain or ice pellets. And as if that ain’t enough, by Wednesday afternoon, we could see some more snow. Now, here’s the kicker, when that rain turns to ice and snow, the temperatures are going to plummet into the minus teens petty quick, which is what they call a flash freeze. South of us should escape the storm’s path, but we will see as Mother nature has a mind of her own, and no human is going to change her mind; Reminds me a bit of some of our women today—full of surprises and never afraid to speak their minds! Anyway we will hope for the best, and keep our raincoats handy.

Highway 522 is clear of ice and snow, and most of the snow we had on the ground yesterday has melted, which is fine with me as I didn’t bother to clean our driveway. But we did get to cleaning our decks along with our neighbor’s, as she is up there in years sitting at 95. But she is still moving around pretty good. Nice lady for sure.

Politician Humor: Why did the farmer say politicians are like a maple tree in spring?
“Because they’re always tapping into something, but you never know if you’ll get syrup or just a sticky mess!”

On another note, yesterday I finished up making an axe handle in my woodworking shop, and I have to tell ya it turned out down right nice, even if I do say so myself. But my wife says it looks mighty fine. I did do a video on how I went about making it, which I will put on my YouTube channel at a later date. I have to say a lot of folks are now subscribing, so they don’t miss any, and my views have reached close to the 109,000 looking at it this morning. And for those that don’t know … it doesn’t cost a cent to subscribe, I was asked that a few times. All subscribing does is let folks know when I make a new video live/public. At any rate, I am very happy with what is taking place, as it tells me a lot of folks today want, or are looking for ways to bring back the simple life. Which I have said many times, is the name of my YouTube Channel, Reviving The Simple Life.

Today I will do some editing here on my computer along with keeping my shop stove fed and … of course I will be bugging my lovely wife. Just Because I Can. Ha ha.

With that I am off for a bowl of porridge that my little woman is making for me and will then see what the day has in store, other than what I have planned. I never really know what will take place. I make plans, but that best of it.

Have a great day, and I will close with this: In the old days, I didn’t have Google to solve my problems. I did however have some common sense, a trusty old hammer, and kinfolk, or a neighbor who knew a thing or two to lend a hand when needed. In saying that … today I still have a few good old boys that drops by for a chat now and then, and if in need of certain things, they seem to show up on my doorstep. Which sure puts a smile on my face. Makes me think the whole world hasn’t run a muck. GW
