Good Morning!

It’s another nice looking day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Hardly a cloud in the sky. The good news is the wind has died down, as it has been major windy for the past three days. It’s also been quite cool. The temperature here for Father’s Day is sitting at 10.7 C | 51.26 F. It will warm up a lot as the day moves forward. And we could see a shower later on in the day. The mosquitoes and black flies haven’t been all that bad, but the deer flies are sure annoying in places.

Highway 522 is getting busier with folks moving around more. Most are from our area, out and about checking out stores here in town. In spite of it being cool and windy, we had a fair turn out at our small store yesterday, with folks dropping by. I suspect the price of gas, groceries and taxes is kind of making people more cautious these days when it comes to travelling and spending. I can’t say I blame them, neither. Building has come to a grinding halt with the price of lumber and things. They think by raising the prices they will make more money, but they are wrong as people are starting to see what they are doing and will start to put things on hold, and stop spending. Which is the right thing to do, as it is the only way we the working man can make them change their ways. What goes around, comes around, I always say.

Yesterday my wife and I didn’t do too much as we both aren’t all that well yet. We are hoping things will change for the better sooner than later. Hard to predict with a couple old bodies. But we make the best of it when ever possible.

With that I am going to see if I can eat something and will then once it warms up retire to my rocking chair on our new front porch. I am glad I got that fixed up, as we both use it a lot, especially now.

In Closing, I Would Like To Wish You Well. And Happy Father’s Day to all them Fathers out there.

Good Morning!

It’s a really nice day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning, things have cooled down some, and the humidity has left us. What could be better than that? Not much in my eyes. It will warm up a wee bit as the day moves forward. Nice weather for doing some outside work. Not that I can do much at the moment. And my lovely wife has been feeling poorly too, she has been overdoing things. So in all reality, we both have to take it a bit easy these days. Yesterday we both got the mowing of our property out of the way, but it took all we had to do it. Today we will open up our store and take things a bit easy. Chatting to customers that drop by for a visit. We have a real good selection of new items this year, which I am thinking will impress a lot of buyers and friends. As I have said in other posts … it is a small store, but it is loaded up with unique, one of a kind items and once I feel better I will get to making a lot more. We will see how that goes.

Highway 522 is getting busier every day in spite of the gas prices being so high. What will happen now after raising it up to $2.20 a Litre they will drop it down to around $2.00 a litre and everyone will be happy. That’s the way they do things in this country, and with so many folks having blinders on, they can’t see what these companies are doing. It was the same as bringing in the metric system, as it fools people into thinking they are getting a great deal, when they really honestly aren’t. Sign of the times, for sure.

So with that bit of info under your hat, I am off for a boiled egg and a piece of toast and will then ease my way into things. Take care and stay safe. GW

What’s Happening On June 14/2022

Good Morning!

It’s a nice day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning without a cloud in the sky obstructing it. And the temperature is set to rise as the day progresses. Getting out of bed, it was sitting at … 16.4 C | 61.52 F. Can’t beat that. However, it will become quite hot for the next two or three days, so it might pay to keep your curtains closed a bit to keep the cool in and the heat out. Highway 522 isn’t all that busy yet, but there were a lot of cars, trucks and campers in North Bay yesterday as my wife and I had to go pick up some medicine I needed, along with some groceries and things. Other than feeling a bit poorly, it was a great day,

I see that not many folks today are wearing a mask anymore. I guess they just gave up, but for my wife and I we will be still wearing ours when we are out in public or in stores. We figure it’s best to be safer than sorry, and hey! Even if it stops the common cold or flu, that’s a plus. On the other side of the coin, the price of gas didn’t help cheer us up any, with it sitting at $2:20 a litre. You sure don’t get much for fifty dollars any more these days. And the price of groceries wasn’t all that good, neither. I suspect we are going to be in for some real hard times. My advice is to start putting what you can away money wise. Cut down on things and feed your needs, not your wants. I also think a lot of people have been living above their means for a lot of years here in Canada, which will make it hard for them to get by. The Powers That Be has got us into a real pickle at the moment, and I am not sure if they can get us out of it. They printed too much money, for one thing, and are spending in places that they shouldn’t be. And I don’t mean here in Canada, neither. Spending abroad has to stop in my eyes immediately. You know, I am thinking our world is going to have to make a huge lifestyle change in the coming months and years. Something like we have never seen before. With them happy notes, I am off for a boiled egg and a piece of toast, and will then see what the day has in store.

In Closing I Would Like To Wish Well.
