The long weekend all ready?

Well for a quiet time of year the weeks are sure passing quickly.

With ATV Mud Runs three weeks in a row plus our annual paddle your fanny down the creek there always seems to be something going on.

I could barley walk after the High Country ATV run but it was fun. I would have been nicer if it hadn't rained at the end. Same thing with the diner run. Thanks to all that came out. We had a good day even though the turnout was small. But it was fun after all.

Our annual canoe trip down the Papeneau Creek this year was a great success. A record number of canoes this year and the rain had to spoil an otherwise great day. It is so nice to see so many young people hang out with all of us oldies and have a great day. This is the first year that I did not flip my canoe and it wouldn't have mattered. We were so wet from the rain who would have noticed. The water in the creek was warmer than the air so a flip would have warmed me up. It was kind of Jimmy B and Dwight to have a roaring fire at the last stop for us.

The long weekend is fast approching. I'm looking forward to seeing all of the familiar faces back for the first time this season. The flies are just starting to get hungry. They haven't been too bad up until now, but I can see them licking their lips through the window every time I look out.

We have a good music this weekend so if you are around on Saturday evening drop into the diner and stay for a while.

Nothing too serious to whine about this time. As long as the sun is shining it's all good.

Have a great long weekend.
