Each year in the early Spring, there comes a point where you have to get in the truck and go on a journey…
…you drive along an unnamed road, to an unnamed farmhouse. You park and walk around the covered porch to a back room. There are no people around. Only a bench covered with various sized jugs, a price list, a ledger book and a tin full of change….you decide how much you want, fill in the book and leave your money in the can. Simple.

This was a pretty relaxing trek through the bush up until I saw this…yikes! (My childhood of watching Scooby-Doo told me to get out outta there and get a snack! …where’s Velma?!)
Hope it’s warm wherever you are! Spring has to show up eventually..right?
I have never heard of Love Your Pet Day but there ya go. (Makes you wonder why there needs to be a reminder)
Yesterday, Relic and I drove out to Killbear Provincial Park for a snowshoe around Kilcoursie Bay. We’ve had a humdinger of a Winter here so there is a thick layer of ice on the Georgian Bay. You can pretty much walk anywhere you want…so island hopping is the way to go!
After reading about the Sphero robotic ball on various gadget blogs, I decided to finally get one for myself. I picked up the new Sphero 2.0 just before Christmas and it’s been a lot of fun. This slick looking bot-ball is about the size of a baseball and is controlled via Bluetooth from your smartphone or tablet.
Happy New Year!
Snowmobile trails on Georgian Bay, January 2014
Heh, heh…okay, I’m really late on that one. I was really bad on updating this blog before the Christmas break and I was resolved to start a new posting schedule on January first…and we all know how well that worked out. The Winter around here has been one snowstorm after another and absolutely bone chilling temperatures. Not that that’s an excuse but keeping the wood stove stocked seems to be the only thing I kept on schedule.* However, let’s get back on track here…

Hard to believe but Relic turned a year old today. He didn’t seem too preoccupied with the milestone. We went for a run in the October drizzle and then stopped in for a new pair of Keens (to replace the old leaking pair I had on) and picked up a rawhide chew to celebrate (the fire was to dry off) Not a bad way to spend a birthday.
