Just checking in.

As is typically the case,  our time here is going way too fast.  Always happens.  Can’t be helped.
With the exception of some minor disturbances,  the weather has cooperated the whole time we’ve been here.  The brutal heat that Southern Ontario had been having earlier in the summer has eased up,  the tornadoes and hurricanes have missed us.  Probably best not to go on,  or I’ll be tempting fate.
If you want to have the cr*p scared out of you,  just take a look at the aftermath of Irene.  Kind of reminds me of Hazel from the fifties.   There were many water issues with that one too.  Moreover,  these days everyone and their dog seems to have some sort of recording device,  which means having more immediate access to the destruction.   Personally I’m not really sure that’s such a good thing.  I’d just as soon be blissfully ignorant for a couple days.  But that’s just me.


There’s been at least one theme party.

I’ll let you try and figure out the characters as well as the TV show they would have been seen in.  
This is where the fridge in the shop/garage comes in handy by the way.  

Along with birthdays and pub gatherings,  dentist visits.  Breakfast with friends.  It’s all been good.

I haven’t managed to get myself out on the lake,  since that would have been either last Tuesday or Thursday evening,  and I was having difficulty staying awake much past nine p.m., so my motivation was pretty low.  The boat leaves the slip at six,  the race starts at seven (well,  depending what fleet you race in).   It’s actually been a while since I’ve been out on a boat,  but I’d be quite happy to just be “deck fluff”.
I did manage to find a picture of the boat, which was taken a few years back when we had to nip into Oakville for some reason or other.  My memory is a bit sketchy,  but I think it was one of those wonderful little RV type jobs:  getting the holding tank pumped out. 
Good times.

Tonight is another Tuesday,  but there are plans for a “Happy Hour” gathering at a friend’s house,  and then dinner reservations for later on.

Fun fun!



  1. I see the blues brothers..ghost busters?..the girl from scooby doo?..or am I way off?

  2. All Saturday Night Live characters, (no Scooby-Doo, sorry) but there were some there that I didn't know, since I think I stopped watching SNL way back in the early nineties.
    I guess I'm showing the signs of being the "old guy".


Well, I've been getting too many spam comments showing up. Just a drag, so we'll go another route and hope that helps. So, we won't be hearing anything more from Mr. Nony Moose.
I guess I'll just have to do without that Gucci purse.
