Subject: Re: Summer Plans?

We've got a pretty full summer planned; first two weeks will be spent as a family at boy/girl/cub scout camp at a place called "Kaszuby" which is near Barry's Bay in Northern Ontario (It's just east of Algonquin Park). Mom's the on- site Nurse for the girl cubs, Dad is der Kommendant for the boy cubs, and our older two will be in the scout (proper) camps.

The first two weekends in August are booked up with family reunions, with the first being a subset of the second. It's my wife' side of the family, her mothers side more specifically, but a good time and a big deal, with relations from all over the U.S. and Canada getting together; this years venue will be Southampton on Lake Huron.

After that we'll be making our annual pilgrimage to Wolfe Island; visiting my wife's Uncle. Always the highlight of our summer, due to the location, (an Island on Whitestone Lake) and the peace and quiet! No phone, no electricity; well...beyond 12 volt power from a couple of car batteries that are recharged by 2 solar panels. Lot's of good food, good wine, good conversation...and this year will end just in time to have a week of frantic back to school shopping/preparations, and the usual lament of "Where the Hell did the that summer go?"
