Whaddaya Mean, It's September!?

Where did August go?  Or for that matter, July?  If we’re going to get a heat wave, the weather gods had better get a move on!  I bought 2 cords of wood in June and I’ve still got a half a bag left!  Normally, a bag of wood lasts me 3 weeks.

We’ve had an action packed month, though.  Loads of visitors (as per previous post).  Plus we went to visit our brother Denis and sister-in-law Lynne at the private campground they’re in.  If I could get a private campsite like they have, I’d give it some serious thought.  This place is beautiful!  We spent a glorious day on their boat.  Woodchuck and Deadeye tried fishing but all they caught was grass.  On the plus side, Agnew Lake now has several feet of new sandy beaches thanks to them.  The worm population is kind of glad we left, though.

And RRR (Road Rage Rita), my travelling companion and communications engineer, turned 88 in August.  And she still has more energy than I have!

We kicked off September with Woodchuck’s birthday.  A nice breakfast complete with surly server followed by a tour of the French River Trading Post, which included, of course, the purchase of fudge, a visit to the French River Information Centre, which has been on our to-do list for many years, and then an afternoon playing dominoes in the sun.  That’s right…..sun! 

My sisters are packing up to leave on Tuesday and I'm going to tough it out for another week.  Mostly that's so I can get the kayak dry - every time it comes close, we get rained on!

Still don't have the new Beast.  It turns out that it's very hard to purchase a vehicle in another province when you don't intend to bring it home at any time.  I've done the mountains 3 times....that's 3 times too many.  Ah well, it'll all work out!
