When I grow up I want to be a fridge repair guy.  My fridge at the house (only two years old) and the Pepsi fridge at the diner both broke.  So I called the repair people.  Two separate repair guys showed up and told me that my fridge was broken.  No shit buddy,  that's why I called you.  They both said that I needed a new fridge.  So see what a great job that would be.  No sweat, no problem.  Now I also learned something else this week.  The fridge that you pay a lot of money for shows up at your door a lot sooner than the one that is coming for free.  It's been three weeks now and when I finally called Pepsi they were shocked and didn't even have a record of the work order.  Again what a great job, you don't even have to be responsible.

Now on to serious matters.  If you are coming up to put in your dock before the black flies are out, ooops too late.  They hadn't been too bad up until yesterday when we had that rain in the morning after that look out.  I took the dog out for a walk about 7:30 and didn't get very far before I turned around to come home.  However he did chase a deer into the woods so when he came out we went home.  He never catches up to them and wouldn't know what to do if he did.  I think he just wants someone to play with.  So no more dark clothing for me for a few weeks.

My roof is on hold until the hydro comes through with a disconnect order.  Everything was going well until Hydro One had to get involved and then the wheels fell off.  If anyone has pull with Hydro One PLEASE let me know who to call.  They want their money up front before they do anything and when you give it to them they don't do anything.  If you ran a small business in such a sloppy manner you wouldn't have a business!!!

This Saturday is our annual paddle down the Papineau Creek.  It is sure to rain, it usually does.  But the drinks taste the same whether you are wet or dry.  I usually end up wet even if it's not raining.

Oh speaking of getting wet I have had two sets of people in this week that have been in for a swim already.  Brave souls.  These are not people that live here to know that two weeks ago there was still ice on the lake.  I'll will be a while yet.

This is a great community we live in.  If you see green garbage bags along highway 127 it is all local residents doing the annual highway clean up.  They do a great job.  Most are from Mink Lake and Boulter Lake.  So my hat's off to all who have traveled their kilometer of highway cleaning up.  So people think the next time you have an empty coffee cup etc and keep it in the car until you get where you are going.

Well that's it for now.  I'm off to town blah, blah, blah so that I can get back early.

I hope that some of you can make it up for the weekend now that spring has sprung. The trees and flowers are coming out quickly and everything looks much nicer.

Back after the weekend.

It was great to be back at the Porterville Diner last night. Just not a Diner but the snowmobiling hub in all of Central Ontario. In fact I hear the chilli will be even better than it was last year. That's unreal
