In the final picture, you can see the finished products. Not bad for an afternoon's work.
The bear was carved by a man with a chainsaw at their customer appreciation day a couple of weeks ago. I think it would look good just inside my front door. Wouldn't fit in the back of my car tho.
There are trappers in the area that we can call to "help" with out problem but Rejean may take care of it himself soon - if they keep it up.
Hmmmm - I hear there is a lot of white meat on beavers....

What did you do today to stay cool?
Joanne's friend Sandy came for a visit on Sunday and on Monday they came over to our place to spend the day floating in the pool - it was a scorcher!! Rejean made blender drinks all afternoon long and I fed them ribs and potato salad for dinner. Poor Mitch only had Krafty dinner - he missed out on the ribs. Mitch is still in Calgary but he'll be here on Saturday to enjoy his 2 week stay. We also played around with Jacques. Jacques is my pet bass. He got a good feeding of worms yesterday. One thing with Jacques as opposed to Lucy (my other pet bass from a couple of years ago) he has no fear and no hesitation to take the worms right from my fingers. He just wams it. No fear at all. We took a cruise around the lake after dinner. The breeze made it very enjoyable.
It is supposed to be another hot one today. We are planning on heading to the jacuzzi later on this afternoon. Can't think of a better place to spend a lazy hazy hot sunny afternoon. (oh yes I can...)
See Ya Bye

We had company - Rick and Joan and Steve and Jenn. There was a lot of work plus a lot of fun had during their visits. Steve got his skull collection out and put some to good use as you can see. He put the steer skull on his shed and Rick put some others on his outhouse. I think they look great!! Hope his grand kids think the same when they see it.
Jenn was busy raking out her little cove. She borrowed my hip waders to help her get right into the thick of things plus I think they gave her a sense of security from the dock spiders living in the rocks next to her. I guess they were rather big - but then again so was the snake that lives over there too as you can see in the next picture. I spied him coiled up catching some sun - getting ready to eat those big dock spiders. See - snakes are our friends.
I also got a shot of a dragon fly resting on the rocks. The bugs have been horrible this year but just when you can't stand them, the dragon flies come out in droves. They are everywhere. There are so many different species and each one is beautiful. They are also our friends. They eat bugs!!!
Busy times right now. Getting ready for Joanne to come next Saturday then Mitch the week after. Sue and Jack will be up for the middle week. There never seems to be enough time to do everything I want to do. But in the end, it will all work out. It always does.
See Ya Bye
