I did get Abbey out on her walk before the rain stated. I also found a picture of Abbey and me on Google earth. I guess were a landmark now.:) The large building in the background is the McCain fry factory. There sure are a lot of gophers in that open area that Abbey is investigating.

Hey Tony, I guess MASS has not heard of our PEI potatoes....LOL Yes dear, we do grow lots of potatoes here in Canada as its one of our main staples when it comes to Sunday dinners. We only import tropical fruit and veggies that need a long growing season otherwise we are quite sustainable in our own produce manufacturing.

Good Morning, Tony!

Wow, how cool or scary is that for you and Abbey to be seen roaming about parts of La Prairie via Google Earth?? It looks like there'a quite a lot of terrain (and gopher holes) for you to cover up there! Now, I know the origin of those frozen bags of McCain fries also seen in the frozen produce section of our many local grocery stores. I'm wondering if parts of Canada are like Maine when it comes to growing delicious seasonal potatoes and other produce? I know that there remains stiff competition around here between those potatoes grown either in Idaho or Maine. To me, it's a tie.

Weather-wise, it appears we're both in snyc with respect to our forecasts for the day. We've had to contend with a rainsoaked morning along with 64F degree temps. Hopefully, much better weather will ensue by tomorrow and last, at least, throughout the weekend. Sunday is Father's Day and most dads should be cut some slack for their honored occasion. A sunny warm day certainly beats out receiving yet another tie by loving, devoted children. LOL!

Hell No, Mush you posted on the new blog before me but I was up at 3:30 getting ready to feed the kitties. Did not go back to lay down until almost 7 AM then once I got up for the day, went out into the back yard here. It looks like a park....LOL Just need a couple more trees and it will be....my rose behind the garage is flowering too. That one is a T rose that is pink with a darker blush towards the centre. Very pretty. My peonies are now finished their blooming back there so its time to cut them back just a bit.

Anyway, have a great Hump day. Dang this week is going by fast. Love the cooler temps....thanks Tony....
