YYZ, blackflies, and naps!

Sunday, May 19, 2013


Son#2, the Pilot is in Havana---en route to Toronto soon--
We just received a text from him----Himself answered it----That in itself is amazing---as he just learned to text----All this technology is amazing!

There is never a dull day in this house!-Yesterday, himself and I had planned a nap---just after lunch---I even made it to the sofa----then...........the telephone rang---It was a neighbour asking if that was our dock, out in the Bay, floating down the lake. Himself said, "'NO""-----I jumped up immediately, knowing it very well could be our dock---(It was!)----
Now if any of you live on a lake, you will know that docks-----are very expensive--Their upkeep is even more!
We don't own a boat-(well, a canoe)----Not many people had their boat in the lake yet, but we managed to persuade a neighbour to go 10 miles down the lake and retrieve it----all this took most of the afternoon-----Dragging a large square dock , behind a small power fishing boat takes time!-----End result--we got our dock back----secured it better---but-----NO NAP!
So, it's raining here----(I kinda like it!)---The blackflies are out in full force---The new telephone still amazes me---The price is right too--(Internet plus phone will be $70/month!)-------Fat cat is hiding in the closet here with Tess, the resident German (as in dog)----guarding the closet door----and it's Sunday----so.......maybe a nap might happen after lunch!---
Spark on Sparkly people-----fresh corn out there-fiddle heads----huge leaf lettuce---
And landing back in Toronto, soon (YYZ) , will be son#2 the Pilot----Ya gotta be nice to Pilots!

    Looking for the dock..............oh that brings back some memories of looking for our dock the 24th week end..........and having to connect the water system(Dad did that while we searched for the dock)
    Love the photos of Havana!

    Great cartoon! Glad you were able to get your dock back. We're not able to put ours in yet because the water is too high - and indeed they are an expensive proposition!!

    I had a co-worker who had to fly a lot at one time, and he used to ask the pilot, "Everything OK in your life?" knowing that pilots are people, too, and he wanted a pilot who was as invested in getting home safe as HE was. LOL!

    Anyway... I see your DECK even has adventures! What a life... and GREAT pictures of Havana... wouldn't you like to be there, too?

    Spark a great Sunday! emoticon

    FATigue . . . love it!

    Those pictures of Havana are awesome! It looks beatiful.

    As for the dock . . . YIKES! What an unplanned "adventure", eh! Glad you got your dock back.

    Hope you get that elusive nap in his afternoon. HUGS

    Mmm hmm... the main reason I don't want to live up around Lake Ontario (the north-eastern end, that is) is due to the blackflies. Sometimes I wonder if there shouldn't be a non-environmental-endangering replacement for DDT...
