March 2nd Here in Southern Ontario we have been in a deep freeze for 4 days. I'm so tired of it. I decided a thermometer picture was in order. It was minus 18 when I took this picture tonight but the temperature is dropping.
On our way back home David and I stopped at Bass Pro Shop. Wow, I have never seen anything like this before. It has an amazing entrance with carved wooden bears holding the sign. All along the outside wall are deer and animals that look so real with a backdrop of painted forest. There is a pond with waterfall and live fish (BIG FISH) in it. Then you get inside and there is a huge aquarium with all kinds of fish. It's like it's built into a mountain with openings where you look in. The store itself carries everything outside you could ever want. Amazing and Fun.
Feb 28th David and I went up north to Keswick to stay at his brother's place. We were amazed that the lake (Lake Superior) was still covered in ice. There were all kinds of ice fishing huts out on the lake. What really caught my attention however, are these kites. They go out on the ice and the kites glide them along. It's so cool.
Feb 27th This is solitaire on my ipod. My friends and I have contests to see who can win the game the fastest. I think my timer is broken because I never come out on top :). It's also great to play while waiting for appointments. I don't know how I got along without my ipod.
Feb 24th I had always had perfect vision so you can imagine my surprise when I started having problems reading. I had heard when you hit a "certain" age your eye sight begins to go but I sure didn't think it would happen to me. You can't outrun fate, LOL.
Feb 22nd I have always loved trains. I think riding them is fun and relaxing. I was very upset when they downsized them. I almost cried when the caboose was deemed unnecessary. I wonder what the future of these wonderful machines will be.
