My Vacation Plans

I'm going on vacation Thursday morning here. I'll be there until August 15. Sometime tomorrow and for a four-hour layover in Denver on Thursday, I'll pre-program some posts on things I've been thinking about. I'll also go on line from time to time while I'm there, although that's not easy. What that means is that I won't be nearly as active a responder to people who comment on my posts.

I've gone to Minaki for at least some time every summer of my life since 1951, except for about five years in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. My grandfather built the cottage in 1921 or 1922 and the major improvements were electricity (1958) and running water (2000.) It's partly because of that that I appreciate modern technology. After having hauled literally thousands of buckets of water, I love running water.

Not too far from Kenora. Really nice at this time of the year. Most of the moskito's are gone by the middle of August and replaced by the dragonflies if I remember correctly.

@Liam,
Wow! I knew you were Canadian, but I didn't know you had that degree of knowledge about that area. According to some neighbors (or should I say "neighbours") who are there now, the mosquitos are still out in force because of the late spring and lots of rain. But still should be better as the month goes on.
I shop in Kenora now that the general store in Minaki is shut down. Did you know that the Kenora Thistles won the Stanley Cup in 1907?
Best,
David

Thanks for setting up automatic posts.

Sorry for the delay. The Kenora Thistles won the Stanley Cup? LOL!!! They probably just got sold to a US team anyway
