Monday

Poem for the day:

Roses are red
Mondays are hard
I suck at poetry
Caffeine.

------------

Ha ha ha. I love that poem.  No I didn't write it, it came from Facebook.

Lot of people here this past weekend.  Volleyball tournament.

Just a note... please SHOWER BEFORE using the pool or hot tub.  Adults AND children. Many people didn't shower during the volleyball tournament and when the chemical balance is off... the pool/hot tub is closed.

Betcha didn't think of that eh?

Please bring a potluck item to share .

Also at this Potluck a Silent Auction will be held...Lots of great items including gift certificates from local businesses and the park!!!!

Everyone welcome!!!!!

------------------------------------------

The weather has been hot... and continuing, except for last night and tonight... what is with that??!!

Today it was around 75F, or ... something warm, celcius :-)

Lots of potholes this week.  A few people have cut their lawns but it is so dry... I may, or may not, cut mine. The weeds seem to be growing well.

People in the lake, people in the pool... busy this weekend... so I hear.  I was out most of the weekend.  All the whistling during the volleyball drove me out... loud, very loud and piercing.

Stony drove the bus around the park all weekend, picking people up in one place and depositing them in a different place.

The Hip concert was displayed on a screen in the seasonal area.  At the same time the comedy show was at the Outback with a bunch of people attending.

I can't report very much as I wasn't here so... I'm sure y'all had a great time.

Carry on!

Only two more weeks of summer left before the labor day weekend!!!

Theft

So Marg asked me to put this in the blog.

Marg and Larry live at lot 229.  Someone removed (stole) the owl from their front deck.

It is black, 16 inches high and they have had it for a longggg time.

If you have seen it or you removed it... PUT IT BACK. 

Keep a lookout. 

Royce's cat will be questioned but I think he only removes shoes (grin). The owl is too big to drag...

Thursday

Phew, what a week.

HOT HOT HOT... and no rain.

The Naked State thing this week (until August 15) appears to be going well.  I've met a lot of the artists and they are very friendly.

They have a tent set up in Glen Echo Field and have been using the Outback and beach for various things.  The members and artists are both using the Outback and beach, with no problems.

The grass is crunchy and brown again. 

There are a bunch of potholes but they cannot be fixed at the moment as the roads are like concrete ... it has to rain first.

The restaurant (http://www.barebistro.ca/ ) has been busy due to the artists and the heat (I think the beer is popular ;-) )

The gardens won't stop growing... aren't they aware there has been NO water?  Stop already.

I saw a news article that highlighted a few farmer's crops in the Toronto area.  The corn was about a third the normal size.  Prices will be going up.

----------------
I missed the announcements for Hump Days and the August birthdays (August 6) .

I hear they had around 50 people at the Hump Day yesterday at Rainy and Greg's.

However the Hump Day Happy Hour for August 17....

Wed, August 17, 4pm – 6pm
Diane and Henry's. site 232  (drive/walk to the season area, keep right and it is nearly at the curve on the right)
 
The middle of the work week is fondly referred to as Hump Day. So why not come join us each week throughout the summer to kick back and enjoy a late afternoon cocktail and some munchies. It will be hosted at a different site each week. Please bring chairs to site on, a snack to share (if you like) and the beverage of your choice. Everyone is welcome. 

--------------------

Phew. 

There are a few people at the lake and it is very warm.  The fishies are at the bottom now as it is too hot for them at the top.

It is very clear at the sides of the lake... last year it was weedy and cloudy.

We have a BEACH all around the lake now.  Don't try to walk it as it looks like most of it is solid mud...

That's it for today... more later as I've forgotten a few things... my list is somewhere... hmmmm.
