The changing sounds of the season


The seasons are changing and so are the sounds.
In the past couple of weeks I have really noticed the decline in the number of birds chirping away in the morning.

Not quite playing on a full deck yet!


Over the weekend I had the pleasure of working with my girlfriend’s stepfather “Pirate Jim” on a new deck for her house.

Operating blind!


Have you ever operated blind?
Well that is how we felt last Monday and Tuesday at the Record.

A tribute to Auntie Linda


Editor’s Note: My Aunt Linda passed away August 2nd. Here is the tribute I gave at her funeral.
Linda was an amazing person.
She was a loving wife, a mother, a grandma, a friend, a volunteer and she was short.

Ricky Ricardo Johnston, 3

Ricky Ricardo Johnston, 3 (27 in dog years), passed away on July 23, 2007.
While his time on Earth was short in terms of people years and his time with his adopted family even shorter, Ricky quickly won the hearts of all who met him.

Turning the “Big 4 0” three times!


How many times can one turn 40?
The answer would seem to be once... but in my case it seems like there is no end in sight for the number of times I will turn this week.
On Sunday I had one day left to enjoy my decade known as the Thirties. But the day marked not only the end of a decade of my life but the end of a very trying week with one of my dogs.

CSI Rainy River?


Could there be too much CSI on t.v.?
In the rash of break-ins last week it appeared the thieves were very “neat” in their crimes. Were they experienced criminals from outside the community or ones that may have received an education from the popular t.v. series.

Festive times in the area


What a festive weekend.
Friday evening a big barbecue was held at Darlene Armstrong’s to commemorate her recent 65th birthday and her son Jim’s upcoming 40th birthday (July 16 for you calendar watchers).

The National Park camping experience


The great outdoors...
Over the weekend my girl friend and her kids travelled to Chippewa National Forest just east of Cass Lake to do some camping.
I have never camped in a national park before and when I arrived there I was a bit lost.
