Standard day at the lake

Jammed my finger under the cabin fixing a pipe, feels like it’s broken. Dog was lost for hours, Son Two inconsolate; she eventually returned. Blackflies are back with a vengeance.

But that moon was so big and close, last night, all of that was forgotten.


  1. super moon – super good

    dog, not skunked or porcupined or worse- super lucky

    finger, as long as one PET salute works – still in business

    blackfiles – hopeless

    “[F]eels like it’s broken.” You better fix that broken pipe.

    “Son Two inconsolate; she eventually returned.” You must be happy that your new daughter returned.

    I went under the cottage to do a little electrical work. We had a bunch of old black wiring and I was replacing some of it. I reached up and grabbed a section of the wiring to pull it out. I was surprised to have pulled on a Rat Snake-all 6 feet of it. They look a little like tar-black and grey.

    Anyway, needless to say I bashed my forehead on a joist as I sat up to scream.

    Everything is OK now though. My daughters have boyrfriends and I send them under the cottage. They of course are not aware of the possibilities. It builds character.

    As long as it wasn’t the middle finger you’ll be okay. For barre chords!

    Work gloves, WK. Never touch anything without them.

    Old European guy runs it. Master craftsman. He’s the Steve Jobs of cottage water. Really.
    Go talk to him on how to build a bulletproof setup that survives -40 and pretty well everything else including zombie attack. He’s in Toronto.
    Mine delivers bottled-water quality out of the lake, two stage filter and then UV into a pressure tank, and I’m off-grid. I had it tested and the lab thought I dropped off bottled water by mistake.
