On the fishing front; we only netted about 17 today and Grandma took all those home. Aunty Helen (my border fairy) is up for the week and she'll be taking some home with her. She brought up my french bean slicer, a whole wheat cookbook, and a 9 quart canner for me. Unfortunately the canner was chipped in shipping so I may have to send it back (I haven't seen it yet because it's still over at Grandma's house). What is it with shipping these days? That's twice I've been "dinged" (no pun intended) in a couple of weeks, first my steamer and now the canner. Okay listen up shipping people can ya take it easy on the parcels?? "Air mail" does not mean you drop it from the plane over the post office!
When I was in town on Friday I saw the Rocky Mountaineer sitting at the crossing. If you are on dial-up I wouldn't even attempt the link, it took forever to load and I'm on satellite. And if you happen to have 10 grand just hanging around you might like to try their "Northern Gold" vacation package, yikes!
