Scaring Morley

Some people are just not animal lovers.. I can understand that.. sort of... in any case- our fair weather neighbour has returned to her "summer house" for the next few months. She believes that in order to stop Morley from barking at her - she must spray him with the hose... You can imagine my face when I watched her do just that this morning- standing in her housecoat- watering her flowers- turns and sprays Morley who is now barking at her posturing with the hose!!
Morley responds to her intimidating style with a bark- "I don't like you" and she keeps on watering him!!... I asked her to stop and her reply " Oh, you don't want me doing that?" I informed her that if she keeps spraying him in her threatening way, he will keep barking at her- I asked her to ignore him and he will go about his way- I have heard her on many occasion indicate that she'll get the hose and fix him!!...
I thought teasing dogs was just something children did- not 80 year olds!!!
Morley went about his way- I sat and watched the Orioles, Gold Finches, Hummingbirds, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Robins, Nuthatches, Chicadees and of course Grackles enjoy a little breakfast at our feeders- while I enjoyed my morning coffee....
The early morning pleasures of coffee on the porch...

Georgian Bay cabin For Sale

Many fabulous family weekends were enjoyed at our little cabin in Johnson's Harbour near Owen Sound.
The family would gather round for fun and games, great food, good times, fab music and best of all wonderful memories.

So, it's with trepidation we sell our weekend get away.

The sunset sets just off the waterside of our boat house. The pinks & yellows glisten off the water.
Rosie the Grosbeak shows up at the bird feeder looking for a fill up. The jays and cardinals sing away in the cedars.
Alvin the chipmunk races around trying not to be in anyone's way.

Check out link above. Look thru all the pictures and just imagine yourself and family enjoying horseshoes, croquet and a feast of freshly caught bass.

Just a land line phone to connect you to the outside world. Once you arrive @ Johnson's Harbour you step back in time to a quiet place on the bay.
