A tad bit late…

I know already–I’m a couple of days late.  To be honest, there’s not a lot of interesting stuff going on until the people arrive THIS WEEKEND!  Yes, Folks, that’s right–we’re counting down the days ’til opener.

I went to Ear Falls today.  I saw a cow and yearling calf on my way up and a big, old cow on my way back.  Those were our official first moose sightings of the season.  We let them out of the pen a few at a time so they can spread out before the tourists arrive;)

Steve and Kevin have been busy, busy, busy.  Looked like Cabin 6 was getting a new hot water heater today.  The Eagle’s Nest is in the midst of getting an upstairs shower.  Tubs and showers have been re-caulked.  The digger guy comes Friday to help finalize the laundry facility.  Here’s what I know ’bout that so far:  the washer and dryer have arrived and are mostly installed; each will take $2.75 Canadian (two loonies and three Canadian quarters); we will provide the detergent ’cause we want it to be septic friendly.  This project has been A LOT of work for ole Gruper! 

I’ve still been washing and hanging curtains, organizing, etc.  I had been cooking and baking up a storm for my new audience (Kevin); however, he has requested that he be removed from the breakfast plan as he feels the need to nap after he eats so much:(  I’ve never had someone quit breakfast before!  Apparently I was trying too hard to dazzle him (imagine that). 

Kevin’s plane is parked down by the Eagle’s Nest.  It had a nice reflection the other morning:

That’s the only photo I took this week! 

Now that sucks (a shout out to John and Marie)!

Thank goodness Jack and Marion are on the stick!  They sent along a couple of photos this week.  Also, I’ve begged and pleaded for a poem of Marion’s to share–the pressure’s on!

A heron from last year’s trip.

Happy belated Mother’s Day to all of you who qualify.  We hope you were pampered all day long (if you’re into that sort of thing).  I’ll close with one of the cutest photos I’ve seen in a long, long time.  Bentley can’t wait to get to Canada with Mommy, Grandma and Grandpa:
