TODAY’S QUIET DEER PARK LODGE WILL SOON BE ABUZZ WITH SUMMER COTTAGERS
Overnight rains freshened things up for today’s late morning sunshine. Managed to get a few more windows cleaned. Kelly worked again today so Pheebs & I took a drive over to see her at Deer Park Lodge. Nice time of year there because it’s not the busy season yet so hardly anyone around. During the summer all cottages are fully booked up with mainly families on vacation. Many come here year after year & one group of Priests have been coming every summer for over 20 years. These fellows always put on a big fireworks display on the beach. All are welcome.
FIREWORKS PHOTOS I TOOK IN JULY/08 AT THE PRIESTS ANNUAL FIREWORKS BASH ON THE BEACH
Kelly, Pheebs & I walked down to the beach. As usual, Lake Huron was adorned in her finest blue & green marine colors. Only one boat visible far out on the lake. Took a few photos around the grounds & included some in today’s post. And, to answer a question about the nearest Airport to our side of Lake Huron I would say Detroit Michigan or London, Ontario.
WASHROOM ON THE BEACH…………..KELLY & PHEEBS WALK BY THE BEACH CABANA
THE GOOD LUCK DUCK left a comment on my Saturday post which straightened me out on a few things & had me scrambling for a dictionary this morning. The comment read: “The Amish and the Mennonites had common origins, but are no longer the same group. While the Mennonites have branched further, and accept differing degrees of "modernization," the Amish retain fairly constant modes of life. Mennonites have churches, Amish meet in homes. Some Mennonites proselytize, Amish don't”.
KELLY WAS WORKING AROUND THIS POOL AREA TODAY
NEW POND & WATERFALL UNDER CONSTRUCTION THIS YEAR
My dictionary scramble lead me to this word.......'Proselytize' : to induce someone to convert to one's faith : to recruit someone to join one's party, institution, or cause : to recruit or convert especially to a new faith, institution, or cause.
NICE VIEWS OF THE LAKE FROM SOME OF THE COTTAGES
And, one more quick correction. Apparently there are some States that do have mandatory helmet laws for motorcycle riders. I had assumed (awww, there I go again) there were no mandatory laws for wearing helmets south of the border.
Off to Goderich in the morning to see my Nurse Practitioner. Originally this was my pre-op appointment before kidney stone surgery but she will also go over the results of my X-rays & Doppler Ultra-Sound last week. My legs have been much better the last couple of weeks & I don’t know if it’s the pills she put me on or my legs are just plum scared. Guess I’ll find out in the morning, what, if anything, showed up in those tests. Tomorrow’s medical appointment will be the first of three this week. Oh joy:((
GREAT PLACE TO WATCH FIERY SUNSETS OVER LAKE HURON
GROANER’S CORNER:((Two cannibals meet one day. The first cannibal says, "You know, I just can't seem to get a tender missionary. I've baked 'em, I've roasted 'em, I've stewed 'em, I've barbequed 'em, I've even tried every sort of marinade. I just cannot seem to get them tender."
The second cannibal asks, "What kind of missionary do you use?"
The other replied, "You know, the ones that hang out at that place at the bend of the river. They have those brown cloaks with a rope around the waist and their sort of bald on top with a funny ring of hair on their heads."
"Ah ha!" he replies. "No wonder.. those are friars!"
