As we do each Friday, Shawn Chamberlain and I shared the airwaves on Canoe FM. It’s always a bright start to the day and it’s amazing how quickly the time goes when you’re having an energized, fun time. Our list of events and activities is back up to speed and that’s a sure sign that we’re expecting an influx of visitors.
It’s obvious that weekenders and visitors are alreadypopulating the county. Our neighbour has 6 ATV friends up for the weekend, and over on Sir Sam’s Road there’s a group of guys making their presence known (enough said about them). Even the custodian at the dump was remarking on the early return of our non-permanent residents. At the West Guilford site you now put household garbage in a dumpster, and on the other side are the recycle dumpsters. He’s had to reroute “dumpers” coming into the site so they don’t back up onto 118, as they did last weekend. The new configuration slows down traffic flow many times over. Best solution for residents – stay away from the weekends.
Blackflies are back too. Shawn and I were wondering if the bug patches at Home Hardware work on blackflies as well as skitters. Worth a try. Sophie the Dawg finds them a little pesky … but then they are quite a bit bigger from her perspective.
