This happens every 3 months or so...  Not posting, yet there has been enough fun and exciting stuff happening to make mention of.  Oh well.  I am on now and I can post some pictures and stories from this long Thanksgiving weekend.

One of the first orders of business over the last bit was to have a substantial fire to rid ourselves/property of the scrub choke cherries, poplar, and other bits of worthless greenery.  It was actually raining when this got going, but not nearly enough to make any difference of the inevitable outcome.  The pile was really big - much bigger then the picture shows I would say.  We thank the invention of machinery to organize this mess as it was, because there would be nooooo way this stuff could have been hand-bombed.  And yes, there is another pile awaiting this same fate.....  But what a world of difference fire makes for cleaning up a place such as this.  So the farm is looking good.  More fires - and trails with the bulldozer which is on the agenda next.

The next few pictures were taken today - Monday.  Shelly, Molly, and I were at a birthday party and my mom, her husband John, as well as John's mother Doris was there.  So in a round'about way we got everyone in a picture, but that Shelly.  No matter.  The birthday party was a big success with children absolutely everywhere the eye could see.  The scary part is that the next one-year old birthday will be Molly's - in only 4 Saturdays from now!  Good golly.

Shelly and I got out on our own for two hours this weekend when Molly was sleeping.  First we went to the Mennonite produce auction just down the road from her parent's place.  It is the best place to buy produce in bulk, and by bulk, it really is restaurant bulk.  Seeing that we had no need for 50lbs or potatoes, onions, carrots, or the like, we moved on to other adventures.  It was over to the "airport", which is the piece of property we go hunting, fishing, dirt biking at....  It was just great to walk around like it was 2010, and chekc out the hunting blinds that will be in use over the next few months.  They look ready to go.
In a few weeks I hope to be looking down on a deer, rather than my dear.

So I am missing out on a lot of fun activities.  I have been on my motorbike quite a bit lately rip'n around....  Shelly and I were in Toronto last weekend.  We dropped Molly off at the Tremain's in Guelph and she was well taken care of, while we were bar'n it up on Duncan Street and having an all around great time....  My work is going great....  Shelly starts back around Halloween - Shelly is also in the production of Rocky Horror Picture Show in Goderich during the end of the month and she is quite excited to get that going for real.  There has been lots of practicing, as you can imagine, but showtime will be soon enough.  She has an impressive ensemble to wear - it puts the bikini to shame!  So check back in and hopefully she'll pose with it on....  Until then,
