WE HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING STRANGE WEATHER……. IT IS BEEN COOL AS WELL AS UNSETTLED FOR THE LAST WHILE……

 IT DOESN’T MAKE FOR GOOD PICTURE TAKING…… WITH THE ALMOST DAILY RAIN COMPLETE WITH THUNDER AND LIGHTNING…… WE CAN’T GET INTO THE MUSKEG……

I POSTED THIS PICTURE ON OUR PHOTO BLOG……. I NAMED IT “TROUBLE ON THE HIGH SEAS”……..

THIS IS A MALLARD DUCK AND HER DUCKLINGS…….. BUT…… IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY YOU WILL NOTICE THAT ONE OF THE DUCKLINGS ISN’T……. ACTUALLY IT IS AN “AMERICAN WIGEON”….. GET THE WHOLE STORY ON OUR PHOTO BLOG……… http://www.photoblog.com/northof57 

 YESTERDAY, OUR DAUGHTER NAOMI UNDERWENT A BIOPSY FOR CANCER…… THAT CAN NEVER BE TAKEN LIGHTLY…… UNFORTUNATELY…… WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT UP TO A WEEK FOR THE RESULTS……

 OIN US IN PRAYER FOR HER……. SHE IS JUST 30 YEARS OLD AND DOESN’T NEED THIS…….

 IT’S A VERY WARM 14C (58F)……. YOU KNOW WHERE THE LONG JOHNS ARE……
