What’s Happening On May 15/2022

One Mean Looking chick!

It’s a cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario. But we should see some sunshine as the day moves forward. However, tomorrow things temperature wise cools down a lot, with some rain thrown in for good measure. But in saying that we do need rain as everything is really dry. We did have a wee bit last night, but nothing that did any real good. Highway 522 is quiet this morning, but that is because it is Sunday. Day of rest. At least for some. For me, it is like any other day. I get that from being a farmer, as on a farm there is always something that needs to be done. Not that I don’t enjoy our front porch off and on.

Yesterday I worked away sanding and painting one of our decks by the house. Today I will work away on a mower I have. I got fed up with it and bought a new carb for it. If that don’t work, I am going to throw it in the dump. I bought it brand new, and it has been nothing but problems, let me tell you. First it wouldn’t run, then the wheels wore out, in one year, then the axle and bearings that hold the wheels are now almost shot. I make-shift fixed things as they happened, but that’s it now. Ha Ha. They sure don’t make things like they used to, as most things are made in China or ? There they use the cheapest material they can to make things.

So with that I am off for a boiled egg and a piece of toast that my lovely wife is making for me, and will then see what the day has in store, other than what I want to do. You never know. Take care and stay safe as there are still a lot of people getting sick from this virus. GW

Rules Laws and Regulations

Talking to a person and saying he is bald is now considered sexual harassment by a British tribunal.

What is the world becoming. LOL Hell, I am partially bald myself, and it doesn’t bother me one bit if some calls me bald. Reason being it’s the truth. I kind of think, that some people have too much spare time on their hands. Anyway, in my eyes it’s a ridiculous rule. But then again, we here in Canada have a lot of unnecessary laws and rules too. We can’t do this, we can’t do that. We can’t wear this, and we can’t wear that, because we might offend someone, LOL It’s my opinion that there are a lot of people out there that needs to grow up.

I have to tell ya, we sure have been having some nice weather for the past week or so. Other than the BlackFlies, that is. But it is to be expected living where we do. And they ease off around the middle of June. They are pretty bad out there at the moment. I worked in my gardens yesterday and the air was thick. But they didn’t bother me, biting wise. I chock it up to being so old, I am not as tasty as I used to be. They would much sooner enjoy the juicy city folks. Ha Ha

Highway 522 is getting busier every day, which is normal for this time of year. The temperatures have sure been warm the past couple days, which should kill some of these blackflies.

On another note, our grass is sure growing leaps and bounds these days. We will have to mow it next week for sure. We still have to plant our vegetable gardens, but I am holding off till after the full moon on the 16th of this month. After that, I will see how things are looking. It would be nice to get things planted, that’s for sure. Doesn’t pay to rush things when it comes to Mother Nature. Last year I planted them early, and we had a bad freeze, and we lost a lot. And the thing is being an old farmer I know better. Ha Ha.

With that I am off for a boiled egg and a piece of toast and will then get to work. I am getting our two front decks ready to paint. They get looking not so good after winter. Take care and have a great day. Make it a great day. GW
