Saturday July 24th, At the Cottage

Hello faithful reader.

Spend the better part of a week up in the North Bay area for a family wedding.

I was the photographer for it.

Prior to the actual day, we did an overnighter at the bother in law's cottage on Lake Nipissing.

He has done a lot of work on it over the past number of years and now looks great.

Nice scenery, quiet and wildlife is around, you just have to wait for it.

Thanks for listening.

Friday July 23, 2010- Lewis farm tradition

Hello faithful reader.

Last Thursday, on July 15th, the annual antique farm equipment demo was held at the Lewis farm in Markham Ontario. Most of the equipment used is horse drawn, and they had 4 teams here this year, as well as a few old tractors using bailers and also used to run thrashers etc.The equipment has been rounded up over the years and lovingly restored by this group, trying to keep the memories and times alive.

Another good crowd, hot and dusty, just the way us old farmers like it.

Speaking of old farmers, i have noticed a pattern over the past number of years. The younger guys try and work the equipment and the older boys tell how to do it right.:-)

Till next year. Thanks for listening.
