Morning report

It’s kind of foggy here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada this morning. It cooled down overnight which I like. Later it will warm up and once the sun does it job the sky will clear. Actually, it is looking like it’s going to be a fantastic week. Today I have some story writing to do for my columns, which will probably keep me busy most the day. But once that is done, it is back working on my Flutes. I was hoping to get them finished before the snow flies. I also have to clean up my vegetable garden a touch and plant some more lettuce. One thing my wife and I enjoy is fresh lettuce for the table all summer long. We have been eating some broccoli lately. It sure is tasty. Deep greenish blue ting, nothing like the store bought stuff. Loaded with enzymes. What could be better. I would say there isn’t any vegetable as healthy to eat as broccoli. With that bit of info, I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and will let the day unfold around me.

Cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. It looks as if we might get some rain early this morning. We could use some for sure which would save me watering my tomatoes. Temperatures cooled down nicely through the night which made things nice for sleeping. My wife and I did manage to go for a walk this morning which keeps us both fit. Or if nothing else a quiet time away. You have to go early though, or there is an onslaught of trucks and things heading to work. Today I will work away around the house here, I have some cleaning to do in the basement getting things ready for the winters wood. Man time sure goes by fast, here we are now coming into September. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee. Have a good day.

Another great looking day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning and temperatures are right where they should be at this time of year. Waking up they were sitting at 11.7 C | 53.06 F. It will warm up some as the day moves forward. My wife and I did go for a walk this morning which should help the old body. Few folks fishing out on the lake. Hardly a ripple in the water. Nice to see. This morning I will do some work in the shop cleaning up a few orders, then maybe if time, I will get back to my Flute making. Then this afternoon will take it a bit easy. Hard life for sure, but … you know? Someone has to do it. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and a bite to eat and will let the day do as it wishes. Have a great day.

Once again, here in Port Loring Ontario Canada we are starting another beautiful day. Sun is shinning, hardly a cloud in the sky, what could be better. Temperatures were quite nice for sleeping, and they were sitting at 13.1 C | 55.58 F waking up. It will warm up some as the day progresses. Great weather to do just about anything. Today I will do a bit of mowing and then maybe get back to my Flute making.

Don’t forget to stop off at Gohm’s Bait & Tackle, 18B Davis Dr. Port Loring, Ontario. 705-757-2620, for your bait. He also has a lot of other items to offer. I hear he has educated worms. LOL. Good luck and stay safe.

What can I say? Other than it is another beautiful day here in Port Loring Ontario Canada. There is no reason not to do your vacationing here. We have some great Resorts, and Camps to stay in and the fishing is fantastic. Hardly any bugs to annoy you, so hey, what could be better. I don’t think there is any place in Ontario as nice as Port Loring, when it comes to being surrounded by Nature. Temperatures today will stay in the low 70sF/ 21 C. What more can a person ask for? Today I am going to be working in the woodworking shop once again. Yesterday I managed to finish fixing my roof on my Lean-to that covers my firewood. Glad that is done up. Bothers me when things aren’t as they are supposed to be. With that I am off for some bacon and eggs this morning, and then I will enjoy a cup of coffee on the front porch with my lovely wife and take in what Nature has to offer. One thing about our property, it is beautifully laid out surrounded by huge pines. My wife says there isn’t a window you can look out that doesn’t have a picture perfect scene. I agree. Have a great day.

Morning Report

Another really nice day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Nothing is nicer than to wake up to pleasant sunny days. Humidity is low and not too much wind. Can’t get much better than that. Cottage country is at its best right now. If you are thinking of taking a summer vacation this is the time to do it. I should say for those that lives in the big cities. For us, it is a daily event. Come winter though it is a different story. LOL Today I am going to finish working on my lean-too that I store my wood in. Fixing the roof is not an easy chore as I am finding out. But I am half-way finished. My vegetable garden is in full swing now with fresh vegetables for the table daily. I will pick a couple of my tomatoes today for lunch and supper. That I am looking forward to. Nothing nicer than tomato sandwiches. Well other than Bologna sandwiches. I am kind of partial to them. I know, it isn’t the best to eat, but I am thinking there is a lot worse. So with that I am off for my morning coffee with my lovely wife, and will see what the day has in store for me. One just never knows. Have a great day.

Another really nice day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning and not too hot. Can’t get much better than this. The rest of the week is looking good too. On another note I am thinking I will pick one of my first tomatoes today and have it for lunch. A few more are almost ready as well. So taking today’s date in comparison to last year for picking tomatoes, we are exactly two weeks later. On the good side of things that means we will be eating them for a longer time in the fall. Which, is fine with me. Today I have some work to do on my lean-to where I put in my firewood. It needs a bit of attending. Like anything else time takes its toll on things and a few repairs are needed. Same goes for our bodies. Then when that is finished up I might get back to my Flute making for a bit, then maybe take in some front porch sittin’. The summer is going by fast, and I am thinking we should be taking a bit more advantage of the nice weather. So with that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and let the day unfold around me. You never know what might occur in one day. Life sometimes throws a twist in amongst things now and then. Have a great day.

Another really nice day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning and temperatures are sitting at15.8 C | 60.44 F. By the looks of things we are going to have a great week weather wise. This morning my wife and I had a nice long walk, taking in what is going on around us. It’s nice to see so many folks fixing up their homes and grounds. Sure wasn’t like that 16 years ago when we moved here. But that is the way things go. With new folks entering into the picture new ideas are formed. Some for the good and some not so good. Such is life. Yesterday we took a drive to North Bay to visit our son and get some of my computer issues looked after. Had a really nice lunch out, picked up some groceries and came on home. Great day for a drive. This morning I will take things easy a bit, relax on the front porch with a coffee or two, maybe do some computer work now I have it working to its fullest potential, thanks to my son. Then this afternoon will let things happen on their own. Why is that? Just Because I Can. Have a great day!

Not to bad of a looking day waking up here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun was shinning and will keep on shinning off and on throughout the day. There is a chance for some early morning showers. Temperatures have cooled down some and it was quite nice throughout the night. I slept with my window open enjoying the fresh air. At the moment temperatures are sitting at 13.8 C | 56.84 F. It will warm up some as the day progresses. But not as warm as yesterday. I would say if I had to pick a time of year I like the most it would be about now. Not many bugs, not to hot and the fishing is good or will get better in a few days. On another note, with this rain we had, the vegetable garden is looking good. I got more colour in my tomato patch and keeping an eye on one that is just about ready for a sandwich or two. Yesterday I got a few stories lined up for the papers and did some computer work. I had a few issues I had to straighten out. Today I will see a bit about mowing around the house here as the rain got the grass to growing once again. So I will get my exercise today, which is a good thing. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee. Have a great day.

I don’t really think fishing will be the greatest today after all the rain we had. I give it a 1 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. The winds are light this morning coming in from the North, North West. It might pay to take a rain coat if you’re going to be doing a morning fish. Good Luck and stay safe!

Morning Report

Finally, we are getting some rain here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. I was going to go for a walk but decided against it, which turns out was a good thing. Although my old Dad used to say when it rained and I got wet. “George … you have to learn how to walk between the drops.” I tried, but seems I always got wet for some reason. Maybe I wasn’t doing it right. Anyways it did cool down a touch through the night which made it nice for sleeping. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 18.7 C | 65.66 F. The rain will continue for a while and once it has it out of its system we might see some sunshine. Today I think I will work here on my computer, I have some stories to write up for different papers and magazines. Could say I will take a day off the physical work, and add a day of mental work. It’s actually a good combination to be doing, as keeping the mind active is a good thing. Saves a whole mess of problems down the road away. Not that I am getting old mind ya. LOL. On another note, this rain is making my vegetable garden happy. I thought I seen a grin on a couple of my tomatoes a few minutes ago looking out. Also, I got my rain barrel filled up with some nice soft water for future use. So what some see as a bad day, in reality is a good day. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a great day.

Today it won’t be the greatest for fishing with the rain we are having and the wind coming in from the North West.

Morning Report

We all woke up to something different this morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada, with fog everywhere. It will be very humid today until the sun comes out, which it should do later on. Tomorrow we hopefully will see a bit of rain as things sure need it. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 16.8 C | 62.24 F. It will warm up as the day progresses. This morning I will hill up my tomatoes a wee bit and put some grass cuttings around them. Then give them a drink. They are a nice size, but still a long way to ripening. Reason being I didn’t get them planted till June 1st this year. Not much you can do about that. I do have a couple that is showing some colour. On the good side of this dry weather, the grass has slowed down a lot which makes me smile, as we don’t have to cut it as often. After I get my garden done I will get back to filling some small orders and then see if I can finish up the Flute I started yesterday. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will see what the day has in store for me, other than what I want to do. Have a great day.

No sunshine this morning here in Port Loring. Ontario. Canada. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 19.6 C | 67.28 F. It looks like we are going to get some much-needed rain today and into tonight. I hope so our garden is in need. The trees around our place would also like a drink I suspect. Today I will be working away in the woodworking shop on some small orders then once finished I will get back to my Flutes. I have 25 on the go this time, which will make a nice show for next summer in our store. Our lettuce in our vegetable garden is slowly ending, so once it cools down a wee bit I will plant some more, which then should last till Fall. Zucchini is growing leaps and bounds these days along with the cucumbers, and we been enjoying them daily. Ruth cuts them up, and we use it with other vegetables for dippers in her home made dressings. Tastes pretty good. Tomatoes are just starting to turn a bit yellow as we planted mostly low acid ones this spring. It will be interesting to see how they turn out. Good size I will say that. Can’t wait till they are ready. Nothing like fresh tomato sandwiches. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and will see what the day has in store. Have a great day.

Looks like another really nice day shaping up for us here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is slowly making it’s way up in the East. To me there is nothing nicer than to watch the sun rise each morning. I like it better than the setting sun. Temperatures through the night were sitting around 11.5 C | 52.7 F. Great sleeping weather. Today it will get warm, warmer than yesterday. Then cool off with maybe some rain tomorrow. Today I will carry on with my Flute making and finishing up a few sign orders my wife took in yesterday. Actually we had a busy day yesterday. Seemed it was motorcycle day as we had quite a few bikers drop by for a visit and pick up a few things in our store. I guess that is what motivated me into posting some pictures of motorcycles yesterday. At any rate it was a great day. I also managed to stain the back deck, so one more thing off the list of things to do. With that I am off for my morning walk with my lovely wife, then will have a cup of coffee and see what mischief I can get into.

Today everything points to not being the greatest day for fishing. But I have a sneaking suspicion it might be pretty good. With the winds coming in from the South East, more so from the south could make things interesting. With a chance of rain tomorrow that will help a bit more. So all in all I think there is a pretty good chance of getting some fish in the boat today. I give it a 3 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. Good Luck!

Another really nice day here in Port Loring Ontario, Canada. Sun is shinning birds are making a noise and temperatures have cooled down to where it makes a fellow want to do some front porch sittin”. Which I might just do today, later on. Temperatures were sitting at 13 C | 55.4 F. Today I will get busy and stain my back deck as it is good to do while things are dry. Especially on the north side of the house where the sun doesn’t hit it that often. Then I will get back to my shop work as I have numerous small orders to bring together. Then I will work on my Flutes. And here I said awhile back I had all my chores done that needed doing. HMM. With that I am off for a cup of fresh perked coffee with my lovely wife and will see what else the day has in store for me. Sometimes I head in one direction and don’t make it as other things come into play. Such is life. But I like it that way, makes things more interesting.

The sun is shinning once again here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures were nice through the evening hours which made it really nice for sleeping. Waking up they were sitting at 57F/13C. It won’t be as hot today. The next few days will remain cooler than what we have been having. Yesterday I did manage to mow our grass which makes things look much nicer. The grass has slowed down some, but I did manage to get two bags of cuttings for my tomatoes. This time of year they are in need of some nourishment, which makes the tomatoes taste that much better. I have some that are the right size but still green. Shouldn’t be long, and we will be having fresh tomato sandwiches for lunch. Today I will stain the back deck. After that my chores for the summer that needed doing are all finished. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee on the front porch. We hate to not take advantage of this nice weather.

Yesterday we went to North Bay for some supplies. Had a great day other than spending money. But what can you do. We also had lunch with our son, chatted for a spell then arrived back home around 4:00 PM. I have to say the stores were swamped with customers. I don’t think anyone works anymore. But it is summer and there is a lot of vacationers blending into the picture. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee. Have a great day.

Not complaining mind ya. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 18.9 C | 66.02 F. It will warm up as the day moves forward but it will be a really nice day. The weekend is looking good too other than a slight chance of a shower on Saturday. Today I have some work to do on my back deck fixing a few boards along with a coat of sealer. Then I will get back to my Flute making. I am starting to make some progress finally. There are so many steps in making them, at first it seems like you are going nowhere. But, such is life.

Today we should see some sunshine along with warmer temperatures. Then tomorrow we could see a bit more rain. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 18.9 C | 66.02 F. Black Flies are pretty well gone for the year. Horse flies and deer flies are another story. Mosquitoes are with us in the early morning hours and evening hours. Not much you can do about it, it’s summer. With that I am off to do some hoeing in my garden while the air is a touch cool. Then will see what the day has in store for me.

Not to bad a day getting out of bed. Cooled down a touch with temperatures sitting at 18.9 C | 66.02 F. Today it will be mostly cloudy, a possible shower or thunderstorm late this afternoon. It will also get a touch warm. Yesterday we went to North Bay for some items, had lunch with our son Karl at East Side Mario’s and came home. Was a great day actually. Stores were really busy with lots of line-ups at the checkouts. You would almost think it is a Holiday and no one was working. Sign of the times. Today I will get back to working on my Flutes. Seems I was distracted lately. Gardens are still looking good and my wife and I are eating fresh veggies every day. I always remember my old Dad saying. “George eat things in season, do that and you stay healthy. ” Makes sense.

Didn’t get onto my computer yesterday. Decided that I would go fishing with my fishing buddy Barry. We left early in the morning. Had a great day and caught some nice fish. Got home around 3 PM. I will post a picture of our catch a bit later. On another note, we all woke up to sunshine here in Port Loring Ontario this morning. Temperatures were sitting at 16.4 C | 61.52 F. It will warm up considerably as the day moves forward and stay warm for today and tomorrow then cool down a touch. Not complaining mind ya after the winter we had. Today I will do a bit of mowing around the house here and then maybe some weeding in the gardens. I never pull weeds I cut weeds as that way they add more nourishment to the soil which at this time of year is needed. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee.

Today fishing won’t be the greatest with the wind coming in from the North West. If it changes, more to the west things will improve. I give it a 3 Star Rating out of 5 for catching some. Good Luck!


Morning Report

Well another beautiful day here in Port Loring Ontario Canada. It can stay like this for the rest of the summer. Temperatures were great for sleeping and at the time of this post it was sitting at 16.1 C | 60.98 F. It will warm up a wee bit but for most of the week it should be quite nice. Near the end of the week we will be back into some hot weather with high humidity. Black flies are all but gone, mosquitoes are still with us but not as bad. Horse and Deer flies are annoying to say the least. So what can we do? Nothing. Today I will be working once again on my flutes. I am starting to see some progress. For the first few days it seems I do nothing LOL The reason for this is there is so many steps you have to do to get to where you see anything worthwhile. It is a great way to learn patience. So with that I am off for my morning coffee. Have a great day. GW

Today fishing won’t be the greatest I give it a 2 star rating out of 5 for catching a few. But as I always say you never know. If you are in the right spot at the right time, you will have fish for supper. The winds are coming in from the North East this morning. If it changes the fishing will get better. Good Luck!

Morning Report

A few clouds waking up here in Port Loring Ontario Canada. Temperatures were nice through the night so everyone should have had a great sleep. Waking up temperatures were sitting at 16.7 C | 62.06 F. It will warm up a bit as the day progresses. It won’t be as warm as it has been, which is fine with me. As it stands, the whole week is looking good weather wise. My vegetable garden is growing leaps and bounds these days putting fresh vegetables on the table daily. What could be better than that. Today I will get back to working on my Flutes. I enjoy it out there when the weather is nice and can have the doors open. Lots of folks were dropping by to have a look see which is nice. The store was quite busy over the weekend. My wife is busy painting sign orders along with a few other things. She is one busy lady this year. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and then get to making sawdust.

Today the old weather stick says it should be a fair day for fishing. I give it a 3 star rating out of 5 for catching a few. It could get better if the wind switches to the south. At the moment it is coming in from the South East. Good luck!

Beautiful day here waking up. Sun is shinning and not as warm. Humidity has left us, so a great looking day is upon us. Temperatures were sitting at 18.9 C | 66.02 F. It will warm up as the day moves forward. Great day to do some outside work. Vegetable gardens are looking good now after the rain so that makes me smile. Tomatoes have also grown a half a foot with lots of green ones getting larger. I did take my grass cuttings last week from mowing and put around them. Today I will hill them up, meaning pulling the soil up around them. That is a trick my old dad did years ago when he was alive. He used to plant around twenty acres of them every year for market. Everyone loved his tomatoes. Today I have some inside work to do then will get back to my Flutes in the woodworking shop. It was just to hot out to be in the shop yesterday. Then this afternoon I will do some front porch sitting with my lovely wife with a cool one. I know … it’s a tough life, but someone has to take advantage of it. With that I am off for my morning coffee and let the day unfold around me.

Morning Report

We did have some sunshine early this morning then clouds rolled in. Today we will see some sun and clouds for most the day with maybe some rain thrown in for good measure. It will be very humid and hot. Great day to take it a bit easy. After all, it is the weekend. We did see some rain through the night, not much but every bit helps. Mosquitoes like this kind of weather. Yesterday we headed into town for some supplies that we can’t get here in town. It was a great trip but every store was lined up at the check outs. I guess that is a good sign. People spending money. We then went for supper with our son Karl at Lot 88. Great place to eat other than being a touch expensive. But once in a while we like to splurge. Just because we can. My lovely wife and Karl ordered a bottle of Woodbridge, U.S.A CABERNET SAUVIGNON to start things off. A light white wine. Very tasty to say the least. Let’s just say none went to waste. For the main meal my wife and Karl had :

Glazed Chicken & Ribs
Grilled chicken breast, pineapple glaze, half rack, Lot 88 BBQ sauce and a Caesar salad.

Myself I had a : Lot 88 Burger
A prime rib patty, egg, aged Canadian cheddar, apple wood bacon, onion strings, ancho aioli and Caesar salad.

After that we picked up some groceries, did a bit of running around to other stores, chatted and arrived back home at 9:00 PM. Then we checked what we spent, looked at each other and went to bed. LOL Today I am going to take things a bit easy being so hot. Tomorrow I will get back to my shop work. With that I am off for my morning coffee.

Today fishing won’t be the greatest with the rain we had last night and it being so hot. I give it a 1 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. Good Luck though if you do head out, and make sure you have a rain coat. Seems things like that are easy to forget, other than the net.

Good Morning

Once again we have sunshine waking up here in Port Loring Ontario. The good news is we did have a nice rain through the night. I think my plants in the vegetable garden grew a foot. They all look nice and refreshed this morning. Temperatures stayed warm through the night and into this morning. Getting out of bed they were sitting at 23 C | 73.4 F. It will be a really hot day today getting warmer as the day moves forward. We could see some more rain with all this heat. A little more wouldn’t hurt, as the trees and things could use it. Mother Nature looks after her own. Being so hot care should be taken if out in the sun for any length of time. I put our open sign up every morning and there is one huge old horse fly that I think sits out there waiting for me, as he bugs me every morning until I am back in the house. One of these days he might just happen to meet his maker. So with them few words the horse and deer flies are still with us annoying at times. Mosquitoes are still around too but not as bad with this heat. The black flies are all but gone in most areas. Today I will be back in the woodworking shop working on my Flutes. I might only work a half a day today it being so warm. Just because I can. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. GW

Today the old weather stick is saying the fishing will be pretty good. I give it a 3 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. With this rain we had last night it might slow things down a wee bit. The winds are coming in from the North West this morning. Good luck!

Good Morning Port Loring

Well another sunny day here waking up. Few clouds but otherwise quite nice. It did cool down through the night so sleeping was more pleasant. Seems I can take the heat through the day but at nights, I like cool sheets. Temperatures were sitting at 20.6 C | 69.08 F. It will warm up a lot as the day moves forward. We do have a good chance of some rain or a thunderstorm through today and into tomorrow. I hope so we sure need it. Besides that I am tired of carrying water for my garden. But I do know if I don’t, we won’t have any fresh veggies for the table. The hot weather will end on Sunday and next week is looking nice. With Nature one has to take what comes along. Yesterday I worked all day in the woodworking shop and attending customers. We have had a steady stream of customers for the past few weeks which has kept my wife and I busy. Nice to see. Today I will again be working in the shop, I finished up most of my orders and now can concentrate on my flutes. I want to get them finished before the cold weather hits. It takes me around two to three months to finish them from start to finish. So with that stay cool, and I am off for my morning cup of coffee on the front porch. Then I will see what mischief I can get myself into.

It has the possibility of being a great day for fishing with the way the weather is looking. I give it a 4 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. It might pay to take a raincoat along with you and be prepared to get to shore if the sky darkens. The wind is coming in from the South East.

Nothing beats front porch sittin”


Morning report

Good morning. The sun is shinning once again waking up, which makes things much nicer. A light breeze is coming in from the North with temperatures sitting at 18.9 C | 66.02 F. There is a slight chance of a thunderstorm later on in the day. But for most parts it will be pretty nice. On the flip side it will be quite warm and will continue till the weekend. I am hoping we do have some rain as the gardens and things sure need a drink. Today I will be in the shop working on a few orders and my Flutes. Lots to do these days. But it’s what I enjoy doing so no complaints. If it gets to hot I will stop for the day and enjoy a cool one on the front porch. Now and then I like to bug my lovely wife. Seems we can chat about anything for hours. And you know? We are good at it. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and a bite to eat. Then will see what develops. Have a great day! It’s all in how you make it.
