It was nineteen years ago tonight that we moved the last of our things from the old farmhouse (Weenie Roast Ranch) near Fullerton Ontario to our location here on the outskirts of Bayfield on the shores of Lake Huron.

Not all, but most of the time we are happy here but there are things I sure miss about our dusty old country digs.

After much urging by his wife, Uncle Joe applied for work on a farm. The foreman decided to give him a try and told him to milk a cow, equipping him with a stool and a bucket. An hour later Uncle Joe returned dirty and sweaty, the bucket in one hand and the broken stool in the other. "Extracting the milk was easy," he explained. "The worst part was getting the cow to sit on the stool!"
