A Grand Opening Day Gone Onto A Dogs Day !

What a day I had yesterday !  First off, Rob had a day off work, so that pretty much says it all there....."no housework" got accomplished yesterday.

Two years ago we had a high efficiency propane furnace installed in our house to gain a backup heat source and well as to increase the equity in our home (face it, how many people are going to heat with wood all Winter, never mind logging, chunking, splitting, piling it and carrying into the house?  LOL).

Through "word of mouth advertising" we happened upon "Fast Freddy" who is located up from us "North of the Checkerboard".  He treated us very fairly and did a wonderful job of installing a furnace for us.  He is such a likable guy, and we have just happened to keep in contact with him, here and there, over the past couple of years.  Well our dear Fast Freddy purchased a building up by Stoke's Bay where he set up a "Showroom" for his business there.  Yesterday was his "Grand Opening", so this is what Rob & I attended to just before lunchtime.

"Here we are way "North of the Checkerboard", pulling into "Fast Freddy's" new digs."

"I was quite impressed with his signage."

"There is our "proud" guy, "Fast Freddy" in person."

"Just a little peak in and around his new "showroom" to see what is available.  Those diplomas are all pretty impressive looking."

"Here we go, a couple of high efficiency furnaces just looking for a "new" home."

"This Barbecue that was cooking lunch later, is put out by "Majestic", who also make gas fireplaces, etc...."Fast Freddy" can supply and install any of these items for the home as well."

"Lots of information was made available for your heating and/or cooling home requirements."

At Fast Freddy’s, you get honest, expert service . . . fast! For 14 years, Fred Flanagan has been helping homeowners and businesses stay warm in winter and cool in the summer.  Free quotes available, check him out at his website:

Rob and I can both testify that Freddy is reasonably priced, knowledgeable and "fast".  Got a heating/cooling need?... then pickup that phone and give him a call.

We had a great time at Freddy's open house, along with a very nice lunch with the salads and deserts made locally by Rachel's Cafe and Bakery in Lion's Head.  Freddy also had the Majestic sale reps doing kabobs and wieners up on the BBQ.  Nice touch !

We didn't arrive back home until about 3:00 p.m., where my Cousin's daughter, Erin, and her husband, Mike, dropped in on their way back home from the cottage to bring along "Boston" to have a little visit with us. 

"Bandit was rather pleased they brought Boston, as it was a wonderful diversion from Lexus bugging"

"Mother and Son had a fantastic time tugging and wrestling with each other."

"Finally starting to wind down a "wee" bit......"

"....not without that last final "who is going to end this look" from both of them."

"Boston was completely "pooped" out, and I am sure slept soundly on their trip back home."

Boston completed his "puppy" schooling a little while back, and Erin was kind enough to recently email me one of his Graduation Photos.

"This definitely has to go into the "Family Photo Album"."

Boston could not have adopted better parents then he did with Erin and Mike.  Good job, Boston !  I can't wait to watch his growth in the months ahead !

Now onto what the weatherman from the Wiarton Airports has to say:


Mainly sunny. Fog patches dissipating this morning. High 24. UV index 7 or high.


A few clouds. Low 14

Looking to be another wonderful Summer day ahead.

I am tired, as I really don't think I have much in the way of "catchup" the past couple of weeks.  Poor Lexus was sick last night.  I had her out at 1:00 a.m., and could not get back to sleep after that.

I have those 4 baskets of peaches still to do, after I return home from my weekly allergy shot.  The dust mites must love me as they have been having the "whole" house as their playground this past week, so I had better get at those dust bunnies sometime, if not today, this weekend.

Here I go in my most usual fashion of "off and running", once again, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".

  1. Boston is certainly growing, I haven't seen him in person yet though.



How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
