J. and I both had today off. It’s been so wonderful!

We took a big load to the dump from my garage, and then a nice drive out to Iron Bridge with stops along the way. We visited my friends in Bruce Mines.

We saw 11+ deer on the side of a hill. J. was able to get some good photos that I’ll post up here over the weekend. Even one of a deer squatting to pee!!

We stopped in a store J. had heard about for their famous really old cheese and their summer sausage. The summer sausage was stamped with the farmers name – Martin – and his town – Atwood, Ontario! Wild! So we bought cheese, the meat, and some bread and made lunch on the side of the road. I don’t care for summer sausage much, but it was good enough.

It was so nice outside and sunny, just cold! Perfect for a drive!

We drove through a couple used car lots too. I sat in a 2002 Jimmy, 4×4, clean, safetied, 91,000km, $13,900. It was very nice. Now which organ shall I sell… 🙂 OH yeah, I’m waiting until my truck keels over.

Did I see Julie’s MSN saying she went to the SPA for the afternoon? Do tell Jules!

Okay I need to clean up the house and myself. Homemade turkey burgers on the BBQ is on the menu for dinner!

  1. Man…..awesome pictures! Are those with your camera that is like mine? I need help big time with mine! You take great pictures! WOW! Sounds like an awesome day!
    We are finally getting the rain we so badly need!! Have a good Sunday!

  2. you sure read my msn right, I went to the spa.. something to make me feel like the princess I am. I am going to have to start saving now so I can buy you a spa day for your birthday, or maybe I will take you to the spa if you come and visit me in Scotland, that way I think my money will be safe… you said you wouldn’t come already to visit haha.
    Great pictures, although I don’t like the picture of the one going pee, there is something private about that to me.

  3. Lisa, Yes that is the camera! Just pick it up and point and take a photo! It’s a REALLLLLLY easy camera to use. Glad you are getting rain finally!

    Julie, when will you know if you are going to Scotland for sure or not? Peeing is private? Heck we all do it, animals and people. J. got that photo so I can’t take credit, but I had NO idea that deers squatted to pee, did you? hehe
