What’s Happening In Port Loring, Ontario Canada

Good Morning!

So how you all doing this morning? Good I hope.

It sure is a nice morning. The sun is shinning without a cloud in the sky. The temperature was cool through the night, which made it real nice for sleeping with the window open. Waking up they were sitting at … 15.9 C | 60.62 F. I went out to water my pumpkins, sunflowers and cucumbers this morning. It sure is nice to be able to do that. With me being laid up I haven’t been able to get around all summer.

You know … we take so much for granted in life. Until something happens a person doesn’t truly understand how lucky we are just to be able to walk outside.

On anther note Highway 522 was pretty busy yesterday. Lots of campers, trucks and cars moving around. Actually our store did pretty good this year after being closed for two years. We also had a lot of our friends drop by for a visit to see how we are doing. Makes my day when I see them. I also have had an overwhelming number of people emailing, calling and writing me, letting me know how much they are enjoying my Podcasts and my Columns in the newspapers. It is sure nice to hear that they are enjoying them. Talking about my Columns … not being able to move hardly for over 4 months I had lots of time to sit and write. Thanks to my son Karl who set me up with a Lap Top. I am not able to sit at my desk. The thing I feel good about is, I didn’t waste the days doing nothing. I have always felt that it is very important to make the most out of every day.

With all that I have just wrote here this morning … I am off for my breakfast that my lovely wife is making for me. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her. Kind of makes me think of a story I wrote a long time ago.

It was about the team of Clydesdale’s we used to have when we were on the farm. When one of them got hurt the other one picked up the slack. I called that story Team Work. Anyways you all have a great day. GW

Good Morning!

Dragon Fly Came to Check Out Our New Deck Yesterday. We Sure Enjoy Watching Them. Click On Image To Enlarge!

It looks like things are shaping up to be one really nice Saturday here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning without hardly a cloud in the sky. The temperature getting out of bed was sitting at 13.7 C | 56.66 F. It will warm up nicely as the day moves forward. The winds are light, coming in from the SSW. Highway 522 is still quiet for this time of year, but it is picking up with more tourists coming into our area along with folks from the big cities opening up their cottages for summer.

The black flies have all but left us, but the mosquitoes are edging into our area and will continue to do so until it gets really warm. The Dragon Flies, though, are making short work of them as they eat them by the thousands. While I was working in my vegetable garden yesterday, they were cleaning them up around my head. The deer flies however are annoying to say the least. But that is the joy of living where we do. You can’t have everything perfect in life. And do I know that.

On another note, we opened our small gift shop yesterday. We had a good turn out for the first day and I suspect now that folks know that we are open after being closed for two years they will start dropping by even more. At least, we hope so. I need to make enough money to put a new roof on our home, and a pair of new work shoes would be nice too. Haha.

Yesterday I overdid it again and my old body got to hurting, so I guess I am going to have to take it easy for a month and see if I can get things back to normal. Hard thing to do for this old feller, but it has to be done. The alternative isn’t good if I don’t. With that I am off for a waffle that my lovely wife is preparing for me and will then see what the day has in store. Take care and have a great day. Enjoy that sunshine while it lasts. GW

Don’t Kill The Dandelions, They are Here to Help Us!

And it is a good morning. The sun is shinning down upon us, hardly no wind to speak of, and things are warming up nicely. And on top of all that, all the mothers, had a great Mother’s Day. At least weather wise. What can be better than that. Not much in my eyes. Highway 522 is busy these days and getting busier every day. It is nice travelling weather, if you can afford the gas.

On another note, I managed to almost finish off our road-side stand yesterday. I just have to do some painting on the old wheels and then will see if we can roll it out front. It will be nice to have a spot that we can sell some veggies and things this summer on. And with the new steel roof it should keep the sun off things too.

Today I will finish it up and see about rototilling up my vegetable gardens. So with them things in mind, they should keep me busy for most of the day. Have a great day and stay safe. GW

This Single Tulip has been showing its beauty every spring now for 18 years. All by itself, close to the house. Click on Picture to Enlarge!

It’s another sunny morning here in Port Loring, Ontario. It has warmed up since yesterday morning, with the temperature sitting at 9.4 C | 48.92 F. It will warm up a lot more as the day progresses. Which will make it the best day so far this year weather wise. But in saying that, I am sure there will be a lot more down the road away’s. I am looking forward to getting out in our boat with my fishing buddy Barry this year. I haven’t been out for two years with this virus. My wife and I did try last fall, but had some boat and trailer problems which stopped us. They are fixed now so should be good to go, once I uncover it and get it ready.

No Black Flies or Mosquitoes as yet.

Highway 522 was very busy yesterday with all kinds of vehicles going and coming. Most I haven’t seen before. The LCBO was the busiest store in town. Ha ha. On another note, the grass is sure greening up. I suspect by the way it is growing we will be mowing it next week. I still haven’t seen if our mowers are working as yet, as I have been too busy working on this road-side stand. I have it almost ready, and I am thinking I might finish it today. I have to put the roof on yet, along with finishing up a few small things. I will be happy to see the end of it. Ha Ha.

Other than people are still getting sick from this virus here in town, not much else happening. Stay safe and have a great day. GW
