Northern Country Comforts Here in the North On April 8/2024

Good Morning! Where the only alarm clock we need is the rooster’s crow…. and the smell of bacon frying in the kitchen, along with a cup or two of coffee to wash it all down.

It’s a cloudy morning waking up here in the north. In saying that, we could see some sunshine this afternoon, which will be nice for those wanting to take in the eclipse, as that is when it begins. Let’s hope the skies clear up, so folks can see the mysteries of the planets beyond.

Yesterday, the missus and I spent the whole day outside, fixing this and fixing that. Later in the day, I started digging that hole for the fishpond we’ve been talking about doing now for a year or so. It’s quite a job, what with all them old roots from them pines we cut down a couple of years back. I’m taking my time with it, though. My body ain’t what it used to be, But it still gets the job done, one way or another. Surprising, really, considering the rough life I have had.

Today once again I will be working around the house here, as there are always some projects needing to be done. One will be cleaning up my woodworking shop after the mess I made in there yesterday. At the end of the day, I was too tired to do it.

Wisdom Lost: You know! The true wealth of a country lies not in its gold reserves, but in the fertile soil tended by its farmers. Which a lot have forgotten these days.

Highway 522 is bare and dry and still very quiet these days. If asked, I would say that: “Highway 522’s the kind of road that’ll make you want to roll down the windows, roll up your sleeves, and let the wind whip through your hair taking in what nature has to offer. It’s a little slice of freedom in an otherwise hectic world.” And I hope it remains that way.

With that I am off once again for my breakfast that my lovely wife has made for me, and will then see what the day has in store. Truth told, I never know. My old Dad used to always say: “George, planning for the future is what we all need to be doing, but the one thing we can’t do… is plan the results.

You all have a great day! GW

Fishing Tip Of The Day From Two Old Codgers: Keep your gear in top condition, like Barry and I do. Check your lines for any signs of wear and tear, and make sure your hooks are sharp. A well-maintained setup can significantly improve your chances of hooking a big one.
