It's been 11 days since my last post and not much has happened except for a beautiful long weekend.  Mother Nature can be so kind when she wants to be.  It was 48 degrees in Lake St. Peter on Sunday.  If that won't burn off the black flies nothing will.  Speaking of which they are not all that bad.  They are still annoying just not as many as usual.  So our early dry spring may have been a good thing.  However my four year old grandson did go home looking like he had chicken pocks after only one day.  Today however is another story.  The short rain fall was welcome (you won't hear me say that often) but the drop in temperature was a bit extreme.

Lots of people around.  Lots of cottagers and campers back.  It's nice to see.

There was quite a large bush fire down Maple Leaf way on the weekend.  It was burning for a couple of days.  No homes were damaged so that was a good thing.  I seemed the fire dept has been out a lot in the last few days.  Even again this morning to the guy up Hwy 127 that thinks he should burn up his bush every year.  When the neighbour saw the flames higher than his house he got a little nervous.

We have started up the music on Saturday evenings again.  A new band made their first appearance last week and they were fantastic.  We even had music on Sunday this weekend because Bob, Jane and Victor were in town.  What a great night.  A good time was had by all.  I hope they come back to Ontario in October.

Most people have their gardens in and it is amusing listing to some of the old guys talking about the bunnies and other critters eating up everything that is planted.  Some of the stories are hysterical and there may be deaths soon.  Norm planted 10-15 baby apple trees (grown from the seeds from apples he had eaten) up at the hunt camp for deer food some day.  Well he thought he would put some dead suckers under the trees for fertilizer.  When he went back a couple of days later to water them something had dug up all the trees to eat the suckers.  Back to the drawing board Norm.  Buck Card has had his whole garden cleaned out by the neighbour's pet bunnies.  Oh the list goes on and on.

Well not much else to report.  I will keep up with the Black Fly report soon.  But I have to be honest.  We put up a gazebo this year so I may have untrue reports!!!!  Hmmm  Oh no I will take one for the team and sit on the deck and go into the gazebo instead of the house.  The June bugs are even out early.

Back next week unless something exciting happens.
