'Tis the season in Nova Scotia

Here is another thing that visitors to our province don't get to do
unless they know it is available to them... of course they do get to enjoy the fruits
of someone else's labor. In this case, Lynnda and Therese Spike have
been harvesting Blueberries from Paul and Therese's large Christmas Tree Farm Lot for the last couple of weeks. I happened to go over the first and last day... today. We picked about five pounds in
an hour.
Then I labored more, and made whipped cream from scratch. Benny liked the cream more than the berries. I like making the whipped cream because I can churn it 'till it is almost butter...
but to be retired!

My photo

Grad. Saint Mary's University, 1975, got into the medical device business initially in sales, then various management positions up to president, all in Medical Devices. I prefer therapy products over diagnostic, but they are all fun, and in a way have defined my life. I have now evolved, with help from my 35 year partner Lynnda with whom I now share every hour. I am into staying healthy, photography, kayaking, bicycling, gardening and two books a week. I wish I had gotten to this stage earlier!
