33 years and the adventure continues!

It was 33 years ago today that we were standing in a small church in Galetta, Ontario saying "I do"!

We were only 22 years old at the time. Seems awfully young to be getting married, doesn't it? Especially since we had only known each other for 14 months or so! But, some things were meant to be, and here we are still carrying on.

I told Ruth when we got married that she would never be bored! How true that was.

May 12, 1984, signing our lives away to each other!

In celebration, we have a couple of steaks to throw on the grill this evening, and there might even be a bottle of wine involved!

Really windy day yesterday here at the park. And it continued through the night and it's still windy this morning. It's causing a bit of havoc with our leaf cleanup and has blown some leaves back into areas we had already cleaned. Oh well... we had been ahead of the game. 

Nice and warm though... calling for a high of 28C (83F) today. 

I got all the leaks repaired yesterday and the water is now turned on to the park. I can start getting the bathroom buildings in shape now.


We've been getting some road work done. There was one section that kept getting washed away when it rained really hard, so we've built some gullies and put heavy stone in them. Hopefully that will help, but we won''t know for sure until we get some more heavy rain.

I went down to take a photo of our owl baby, but it was being shy. Mom was still up there. I can't believe how the nest even stays there when it's so windy...

  2. Happy Anniversary to you two, and here is wishing you many more.

    If an owl nest can stand up to those winds sweeping across the prairie, maybe we should hire owls to build OUR Homes.

    1. Thank you Dee!

      Most Great Horned owls don't build their own nests, the steal other birds nests and than maybe add a bit of feathers to line it with. They will try to find whatever they can, even an old burrow in the ground to avoid making a nest. Only on very rare occasions will they build their own.

      You'll have to look at my reply to Dee because they don't build their own nests.

    1. Thanks Tommy! Yes, it is great that we like "most" of the same things and that we enjoy doing them together. We know people like the ones you are describing but they aren't miserable, they just do some of the things on their own instead.
