We sure have had a mixed bag of seasons this month as you can see from the photos. Sometime snow, sometimes not. I don’t know how the critters survive especially the little songbirds that are migrating and hoping for a bite to eat on their way.

Morning Marlene. We are in for a very wet 3 days here. Had only begun to clear the leaves at the Cemetery yesterday when it began so not much else I can do there. My sidekick has gone to Australia so the place is all mine, just hoping no one wants to go into the ground. Until last summer when we put a stop to the hand-digging of the graves, that is how we did it. Although full burials are becoming less of a choice they still can happen. 6 man hours. Don’t mind the urns, they only take 45 minutes to dig and if going into one of the above ground niches, well that is just the turn of a key. Yes—about the critters that always seem to hang around a little too long and then get caught by snow. Don’t know how they survive! We feed the birds and what they spill the bunnies get, all year long. We miss the mallard ducks. In Ottawa we had a huge flock of them that came by to get at the corn we tossed out, 80lb bag every 3 weeks. Move to the country and can’t get even one to drop in. My sister Leanne&I wrapped up our diving 2 weeks ago with a dive to recover the wine that I’d sunk the day I turned 65. Seeing as it has been aging for just over 5 years, it was time. Took 40 minutes to find the 1st crate and we brought it up but not enough air to go back and look for the 2nd one. That will have to wait for next season. Back in July I put down another milk crate of wine that I’d prepared for my 70th, in a different lake with our grand-daughter Leona. We’ll go back in another 5 years. I’m still pulling up wine I put down when I retired and the Barolo is doing fine after 11 years. Well it is time for my gym. Hope all is well for you and Waldi and not too much snow to deal with. Dave
