Fish Story

I went to the Sail outlet to view the fishing reels being sold because it’s actually been about fifty years since I dangled a bamboo rod at the edge of the dock on Tindle Bay on Lake Chemong.

When it was mentioned to me that I was not a fisherman and a hundred dollar reel was out of the question, I purchased the last forty dollar demo at forty percent off.

I said when I show what kind if fisherman I really am, the hundred dollar one may be a waged present sometime, the opportunity presented itself the very next day.

What can I say? Hihihi!

 

Polliwogs are morphing

It’s only been about two weeks since the toad eggs hatched in the pond. Before that there was almost a week of night time croaking which almost sounded like an adult cricket party with their deep throat vibrations. The tiny legs are beginning to sprout and the tadpoles will soon creep onto the rocks in the pond and they will emerge to the dry earth soon enough. What a process to witness!

By the way, do you know where this “featured image” can be located?

It’s on the “Artie” in Jackson’s Park, Peterborough Ontario, where I learned how to catch shiners and chubs with a dip net and a piece of bread dropped on the water’s surface.  We let most of them go, and the rest became pets for a few days.

Remember What Is Most Important

It’s not having everything go right;

it’s facing whatever goes wrong.

It’s not being without fear;

it’s having the determination

to go on in spite of it.

It is not where you stand,

but the direction you’re going in.

It’s more than never having bad moments;

it’s knowing you are always

bigger than the moment

It’s believing you have already

been given everything

you need to handle life.

It’s not being able to rid

the world of all its injustices;

it’s being able to rise above them.

It’s the belief in your heart

that there will always be

more good than bad in the world.

Remember to live just this one day

and not add tomorrow’s troubles

to today’s load.

Remember that every day ends

and brings a new tomorrow

full of exciting new things.

Love what you do,

do the best you can,

and always remember

how much you are loved.

Can we link back to the Ocean?

Just leaving the port of Bayfield on Lake Huron with Lee Gee on the bow supervising the waves.

2016 is our 15th year in the same port, and the sunsets are still as good as they get!!

Protect yourself against Fraud

There seems to be nothing worse than being interrupted by someone on the phone professing to be from a government agency, and demanding of your time.

It can get even worse when they try to intimidate you and demand a payment in the form of gift cards, or anything else they can convince you to pay.

The Canadian government does not operate this way, and an individual, department, or agency will send you mail to correspond.  That’s “snail mail” and not the type that will invade your electronic mailbox.

Pay no attention to these “scammers” and if you are going to say anything at all to them before you hang up, make sure it is along the line of “please contact my authorized representative”.

Here is a website put up by CRA to enlighten you a bit:
