A change in the level of wind this morning, calm, a pleasant 12C, will rise into mid teens, a slight breeze from SW. Remaining clear till tomorrow then quite a bit of moisture this way comes.

Casting Call for the MARS BAR add went well over the weekend. A small number signed on originally, however by Sunday afternoon approx. 170 folks of all ages had been interviewed. This weekend a another go to reduce the number, actual shoot to take place mid-November. This will eliminate the fisherman as will be just into the start of the lobster season.

Construction of the enclosed area moving along very well, possible will be closed in by the end of today, certainly by tomorrow. All good as once painted on the outside will be in a position to start the ice making process, much interest in getting that in commence.

Dear Rob:

I was laughing out loud to self about your augmenting the Christmas Decorations line. I bet the wife thought she had you beat by not going to Canadian Tire, however, probably unbeknownst to her - Costco is a regular Santa's workshop of decorations already. Ha Ha -- hope you score something fantastic!

It is 16.5 degrees here at 1:30 p.m. I can hardly believe how nice it is. I am one of the unlucky neighbours. EVERYBODIES leaves blow in to my yard. All hide out in their houses when they see me out there slaving away - just in case I suggest (strongly) that they might want to help? Oh well, saving loads of money at the gym?????

That said - must get too. I find it very refreshing how all in Grand Manan are so pumped to get the ice going and the willingness to help out. All communities should be so close. Imagine how wonderful our world would be.

Have a fantastic and wonderful day.

Word. Chunks.

p.s. to David -- if you see any neat and interesting stuff at sea - i.e. birds, whales, etc., don't forget to let us know. Know that Rob likes all the fisher folk chitchat, but I want to pick your brains on the critters. (MY FAVOURITE SUBJECT) Word.

Mornin CHUNKS, we enjoyed the same weather as you folks, not good first thing, but by noon a grand fall day in progress.
The southerly breeze has moved my leaves off to the neighbours and beyond, yard clean and ready for winter rest. The power machines have been placed in the shed and have no plans to revisit them till spring.
A quick run to St. John the order of the day, nothing speacil just a little R&R for the other half, COSTCO beckons. I might locate an outdoor decoration to augment my Christmas display.
The ADVENTURE still remains on the side, expect her back by the end of the week, however nothing official. She certainly has had some gremlins to deal with, however it is man made, a machine and these things will happen. Once the gremlins have been banished she will be a great addition to the community.

You should have time to get some more of the leaves under control before the rain comes, have a good one.
