Lynn is all excited about Halloween and wanted to share our first Halloween in NB with everyone. We have goodies for the kids and goodies for us! Not bad for a first attempt, I'm sure we will add stuff every year to improve the look.

A video for Ron

Of course Ron doesn't have a computer so he'll probably never see or hear this but if you like Christian music you can give it a listen. The singer/songwriter is Don Francisco and Dolly Parton had great success with the song, it's on her White Limozeen album! Enjoy.

One more day

Lynn is coming home tomorrow, yippee!! As much as I like alone time, this has been a very very long week, ok, not really a week, six days but it feels much longer! My huntress is coming home. I'm gonna hitch a ride with the brother in law so that I don't get lost in the woods, although I think I might be able to find my way there. When you're on dirt roads in the woods, they can sometimes seem very similar. Maybe I'll be adventurous the next time around. With any luck we'll be having meat pies in the very near future. If not at least Lynn had the chance to relax, she's very busy around here, cutting wood, stacking wood, burning wood. Hopefully this break will have been a good one for her, not so good for me but I survived, the dogs help and of course her pillow is now covered with dog hair, I'm sure I'll hear about it. The replacement dog collars arrived and now Odo is a happy camper coming and going at will. I tried wrapping his transmitter in plastic to see if it will last longer than it has in the past. Loki doesn't roll and burrow through the grass and dirt so his seems to be fine. We'll see how it goes.

Odo, our eldest Elkhound

Am I not the cutest? I've been known to hunt squirrels, like those guys below but they won't come into the yard to play.


We have many creatures to amuse ourselves with but I have to admit that although the birds are beautiful and fun to watch, I get the most amusement from our furry friends. We have a couple of squirrels who used to fight but now seem to be very close (wink wink). One is quite shy and when I took these pics he or she was hiding in the well but the other one made a point of checking me out.

It's Fall for sure

Seems like overnight we lost all of our leaves along with a lot of our privacy. We have had some major blustery days with gusts up to 60kmh. No surprise then, that the leaves have gone. Lynn prepared the backyard for winter so we have no lawn furniture and the fireplace will be the next thing to go.

Strange Mushroom

We have the strangest mushrooms here so I thought I'd share them with you.

Great Time Waster

I have found myself spending a lot of time playing a flash game called Desktop TD or tower defense. A very popular game, so much so that the creator actually quit his job to devote all of his time to it.

If you want to play the game it's located here.

Road Trip

Lynn thought that she would take me on a road trip. Into the woods we went to visit Island Lake. We could take in the view and enjoy all of the fall colors which are heading into full bloom right now. It doesn't feel like fall though, it was 22 degrees when we headed out. It was an enjoyable, peaceful romp in the woods and yes, it's hunting season so it wasn't only the trees that were colorful, both the hunters and their atv's were also quite bright :)
