With today's heat & humidity it didn't take me long to wear myself out. Hitched up the Utility trailer this morning with my gardening tools aboard & headed off into Bayfield. One of the DEER PARK LODGE properties was needing a little attention so I was called upon to slip over & get things tidied up. Kinda nice getting up with somewhere to go & something to do for a change. Enjoyable morning trimming shrubs, tree limbs & just some general all round yard work. Didn't have my ladder with me so will have to go back Monday & finish things up. A stop at Deer Park Lodge to trim up a few more shrubs on the way home & that was it for me. ‘Ker-pooped’. I wasn’t long in grabbing myself some relaxing zzzzz’s in my recliner & soaking up a very welcome blathering blast of nice refreshing cool central A/C. Awww, tis quite a life we lead here sometimes:))
THANKFUL TO HAVE ALL THIS SHADE FOR MY BAYFIELD YARD CLEAN UP THIS MORNING
I remember a bunch of years ago I had a short wave radio with various bands on it such as police & airline pilots. That radio is long gone but a friend just told me about a link for picking up the police bands again right here on the computer. So now I not only have my soothing ambient music playing, I have Ontario Provincial Police dispatchers in the background talking to various cruisers out in the field as well. I've always found that kind of interesting. Earlier they were looking for a tractor trailer unit in our area with a green garbage like bin on the back. Dispatcher said she got a complaint from another driver saying the truck was having a hard time driving a straight line. Oh oh, it's the weekend....10-4!! And, the dispatcher head me scrambling for my dictionary when another call came in saying someone was unable to ‘ambulate’. And then there was a call just now about an 80 year old woman in a white Cadillac threatening another driver in a tan colored Toyota after a slight fender bender. Don’t know if this is applicable in your neighborhood but here's the link for the SCANNER.
SATURDAY’S BRIDE DECIDED AT THE LAST MINUTE SHE DIDN’T JUST WANT THE DANCE FLOOR MOVED, SHE WANTED A WHOLE NEW FLOOR INSTALLED IN THE TENT TODAY………

Big weekend in Bayfield called, Sail & Canvas. There will be lots of sailboats all weekend with races being held out on Lake Huron. Downtown Bayfield will be awash with with people coming from all round to enjoy the days festive activities. For as long as I can remember, Bayfield has always been a favorite weekend destination for folks with all it’s arts & craft shops on main street. Some very fine eateries here as well. Undoubtedly one of the areas finest summer destinations, right here along Ontario’s West Coast.
Any long time readers know exactly how I feel about the decaying or already decayed state of music these days. With the likes of that circus side show character named Lady Goo Goo or whatever that spectacle calls itself it is a pretty sad state of affairs out there in the ‘so called’ music industry. But, let me step aside for a minute & let someone else sum up my exact thoughts much better than I. Mike hits the nail square on the head with MUSIC FOR GEEZERS.
