First, is the return of the Flies. That is right, with the first long holiday weekend makes the coming of the Back Flies.
It seems that annually with the arrival of the seasonal residents the Black Flies make their presence known and feast on the new comers for the next six or seven weeks.
It is Natures way of saying "Welcome Back!".
The mosquitoes have been maturing and readying themselves to indulge in the fresh human blood of the city visitors.
The joke around here is that there are only two seasons: Winter and Flies!
But, that is unfair as Winter is only 6 months and flies are only 5 months. That leaves a month of something different.
But, this only part of the picture. There is also the relaxation of fishing, kayaking, canoeing, leisurely cruises on the lake enjoying the company of friends, beautiful Sunrises and Sunsets and of coarse great BBQ get together.
All this and the enjoyment of daily interaction with the dogs.
Life is what you make of it and life is certainly better than the alternative!
For those that would like to experience a Fall/Winter here, a position for a Handler/Trainee has opened up.
Go to the Handler/Trainee Page for more information on how to take advantage of this unique opportunity.
Until next week.......
