This is a little summary of our first week in Ontario the family part of it. There was much much more I took photos of both for work and pleasure. Those will grace this blog over the next week or so. The weather wasn't too humid and sticky like it gets usually when I am home. We had one night were the winds picked up and a storm blew in. The kids were in love with my mom's new kittens, racing the bikes around the lane way, playing with cousins, exploring the fields and picking peas. We got to blow bubbles, bake pies, build castles, swing in the swings, wash trucks, visit butterflies and watch all the birds that graced both grandmother's bird feeders.
It was all good!!!!!!

Farmers EmployeesA man owned a small farm in Australia. The Department of Industrial Relations claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent to interview him.
“I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them”, demanded the agent.
“Well, there’s my hired hand who’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $600 a week plus free room and board. The cook has been here for 18 months and I pay her $500 a month plus free room and board. Then there’s the half-wit that works about 18 hours a day. I pay him $10 a week and buy him a carton of beer and smokes”, replied the farmer.
“That’s the guy I want to talk to; the half-wit”, says the agent.
The farmer says, “That would be me”.
