I'm back from the "Great White North" and wish I never left. Its always a good trip whenever we go up year. It was the same routine everyday. Wake up at 7:30, eat breakfast, fishing at nine then its beers from 11-5, dinner and fishing again at 6. Beers follow fishing until whenever you start to pass out. Such a relaxing beautifil atmosphere. Its just too bad that its so far away. This is a picture that I have wanted to take for 4 years, and since Jules and I drove ourself up this year I finally got to take it.

This year I got to learn how to clean fish.......All I can say is that is an artform. If your not hacking up the good meat while taking the bones out, you are leaving meat on the bones. By the end of the week I was good to go though. Anyway, its moving time next weekend. Moving into a house in Waterloo and am pretty excited about it. It'll be the first time I move away from the old L town. Something new, something different. I will miss my Jules when I'm there but I'll be coming home every other weekend. I'll leave you with some pics of the Northern escape. Not many pics were taken because the beer was in my camera hand........

Well its that time of year again. On Friday the lovely Julia and myself are embarking on our Northern adventure. Every year her mom's extended family rents cabins on Lake Temiskaming for a fishing extravaganza. Days are spent fishing on a boat on one of the prettiest lakes in Ontario, while nights are spent partying around the campfire. Sambucca is thed drink of choice and we fill our glasses and sip it all night long. I missed out on last years trip because I had to work, but this year with my new job I was able to book it off early. Thanks RIM!! Anyway, I will provide some pics when I return. Hopefully I will stay motivated to post more than 4 times a year.

The countdown is on!!!!! On August 21, the greatest show on television returns for its second season. This should be an interesting season seeing as they will have to change up the sets a little. It will no longer primarily by in a prison. I hope they don't disappoint and look forward to my Monday night vigil.
