The weekend of our disconnect
We were without cell/Internet at camp all weekend. Hardly the end of the world, but a little bit inconvenient - especially if Publishers Clearing House was trying to call us for delivery of a million bucks.
It’s funny how we forget... Saturday morning we wondered what the weather would be. Normally I’d just check the forecast using my cell phone. Part way through the afternoon - hours later - I had a brilliant idea. “Hey, why don’t we turn the radio on and listen for the forecast...” That’s a duh moment.
We fired up the bonfire on the Palace deck. The evening was cool enough for pleasure of the heat, and the full moon peeking through the clouds of our southern sky was a treat.
I’ve been a good boy, more or less, so treated myself Saturday night to barbequed tenderloin and baby potatoes served in a cast iron sizzler. That was pretty special. I’m either going to behave myself again soon so I can do it another time, or just cheat and do it anyway.
The Sioux Lookout Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have recently responded to multiple complaints of Off-Road Vehicles (ORVs), including ATV's and dirt bikes, being illegally operated in our community.
