Starting things off, it is cloudy here in Port Loring, Ontario. We should however see some sunshine as the day progresses, and then rain for tomorrow. But Monday isn’t looking all that bad. So weather wise, things are shaping up for a not too bad Long Weekend. We did have a nice rain through the night, with lots of thunder and lightning. Things could have been a lot worse as they said we could have had a tornado along with large hail. So all in all, we made out pretty good. Highway 522 is getting busier every day. Yesterday I had to go pick up a belt at Mikes here in town. I decided to go for a walk and I had to wait for all the cars, campers and trucks, so I could get across the highway. Sign of how things are changing these days.
On another note, I did get my parts for my fifty-year-old rototiller, so going to see if I can put it back together this morning. It is a good old machine, but hard to get parts for nowadays. I can’t complain, mind ya, as I haven’t had to do hardly any maintenance on it for as long as I have owned it. Something like my old Roper Riding Mower. Ha Ha. I have to say, it turns heads when folks see me mowing with it.
On another note, I got my potatoes planted yesterday, which should give us a few nice meals later on this summer. My garlic is also growing leaps and bounds too. The best I have ever grown, thanks to my friend Archie. Sometimes a feller has to take some advice from others. I also got my vegetable garden in shape for planting. I will get at that in three or four days. Just waiting to make sure there isn’t going to be any more frost at nights.
So with that I am off for a bagel with some Dandelion Jam my lovely wife made for me yesterday and will then see what the day has in store other than what I have planned. You never know. Stay safe, still lots of folks sick here in town.
Good Morning. It’s a sunny morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. However, we could see a thunderstorm later on today. The reason being it will become quite hot as the day moves forward, which will bring in rain. The long weekend other than Monday isn’t looking all that good weather wise, with more rain in the forecast. In my eyes, we here in Canada should have stayed the same as the USA with the Holiday being next weekend. That way, it would be a bit later when the weather is nicer. And the tourists in the USA would be off work the same time we are. But that is what our government is all about … messing up things.
Highway 522 is still quiet these days, with a lot of folks staying home with the gas prices being so high, along with our economy getting worse every day. We spend billions giving it to other countries when we should be looking after our own here at home. You know … let’s take the USA & Canada if they would take the billions that they are sending over to other countries and put it into, let’s say … finding a cure for cancer … cancer would be a thing of the past within a few years. I don’t for the life of me see what their thinking is. Like the wars and things. It isn’t the people themselves that want war, it is simply a certain number of so-called power hungry, big shots trying to force their beliefs on others. What a shame that is. Makes me sick thinking about it. I can see, in a few years, the people themselves eventually rebelling and getting rid of all governments as they stand today. Might not be in my time as I am getting up there in years, but it is coming, mark my words. People have had enough and when they themselves can’t take any more something is going to happen.
Anyway, that’s my rant for the day. I am going for a cup of coffee. Heck of a way to start the day. Stay safe.
Oh, the blackflies are still with us, but the mosquitoes haven’t made an appearance as yet. Another Parasite we could do without. GW
