Where has Summer gone?

Summer here at Rivers Provincial Park is drawing to a close.  We are starting to have some fall weather with some rain and wind.  We have 2 more weeks to have the shack open and then it is time to board up the windows again.  We have had a good time this summer with all of our kids and grandkids around us from time to time.  I don't know why any kid would want to spend time here when all there is to do is swim and boat and mini putt and eat ice cream for breakfast.  We know we spoil all of them but the memories made here at the shack will last a life time we hope!!

A fun time with friends

Harold and Ed and I were allowed to slip away for a little while last Saturday to attend the airshow at the Commonwealth Air Plan Museum in Brandon.  I like to go because I have a little love of aircraft and know some of the people involved with them.  The museum itself is quite well done and worth having a look at.

The Mericans Came for a Visit!!!!

Once a year I have to drive the 2 and a half hours to Winnipeg to have my ICD (defibrillator) checked.  They mainly check it to see where the battery levels are at and if it has been triggered in the last year.  People who have these implant, normally have them because they need to have some heart pacing done as well so that is a little more time consuming at the check up, but for me all that is shut off cause my heart purrs along just fine.  Only problem with me is that my heart could stop from say exertion or a scare or those kinds of things so that would be the only time it would kick in and start my heart again.  So the trip to Winnipeg and back for my 10 minute check up takes about 8 hours.  It was a boring drive this time because I was by myself.  It took forever to get to the half way tree.

Time Waits for No Man!!!

I thought a weekly post would be doable, and it is, but I still have to set a deadline for myself.  Tomorrow is not a good deadline because I am a procrastinator, and with me tomorrow may never come.  Anyway this is my weekly journal up to June 13 or there abouts.  That also means that I will have to prepare another post in the next couple days to cover up to the 20th!!  I can do it...and if not, there is always tomorrow.  Our new employee, Trista did up some new window signs for us and I think they look great.  We have our menu out front now in neon lights for everyone to see.

Renovation Almost Complete

We are pleased to say that our renovation is almost complete.  The contracted part of it is and now we just have to do some painting and flooring and moving all the freezers and building some storage shelves.  Our contractor, Larry and his helper Glen, did a good job getting it done in jig time.  I originally decided to ask him if he could do the job last Tuesday and he started the job on Wednesday about noon.  That is fast.  They cleaned up the work site and I paid them and off they went this Tuesday.  That was quick!!!  Good job guys.
