Welcome to the jungle!
I don’t know about your yard, but everything in mine has grown so well this year it is getting to be a bit like a jungle in places.
This week I found myself reflecting on how many people are constantly helping us put the paper together each and every week.
Obviously our front line staff members, Linda Johnston and Anne Mailloux’s efforts are very evident every week. However, there are many, many of you who contribute regularly and do so happily.
Now where does that saying come from?
We usually use it when we are annoyed with someone.
What a contrast in weather over the weekend.
From two inches of snow on the ground Friday morning to scorching temperatures both Saturday and Sunday.
Will Prime Minister Harper prove to be a very smart politician today?
He will unveil his first federal budget today and everyone is expecting him to cut the Goods and Services Tax as well as bring in his $1,200 per child care allowance.
It must be my fault... yes you can blame me for the cold blast of Old Man Winter on Monday.
I decided Sunday morning to work the soil in my vegetable garden to see if it was dry enough to plant. Well it was so I proceeded to put the treated timbers around the outside that I use to keep the soil from washing away in the rain and then got my seeds out to plant.
OOOOOHHHHH my aching back..... legs... arms....
You name it, it hurt on me come Monday.
I, like so many people ventured out into the world of yard work on the weekend and boy was I paying for it the first of the week.
Two dogs in one.
That is what many people have said about my Shih Tzu named Navy... especially after they saw the “little” guy late Sunday afternoon.
Navy went on a two hour diet that saw him lose at least half his girth. It was a painstaking process. He not only had to give up his treats but also his food and water for two hours.
What time is it?
I found myself looking at the clock several times Monday and saying it can’t be that time already.
It looks like our on line readers are pretty keen.
A couple of weeks ago we had a poll asking if people thought the ice would go out early, average or late this year.
