The first picture is one more of the house I built in the Ottawa area, don't know yet if one of those tornadoes got it, it was close to the area that the big one touched down at. This picture after the roofing went on and the doors and windows installed.
In 1995 I was operating the power house at Belleville General Hospital when they decided to decommission the back-up power, diesel generator. The chief told me I could keep what I wanted from the galvanized tubing distribution, if I dismantled it, ha ha, he new me well. I had just traded in my old Ford on a new version and I needed a canoe rack for it. I didn't have a shop at the time, and he didn't figure out I had built it on night shift, until he complimented me on the nice new canoe rack, ha ha, we both had a good laugh about it.
On a camping trip north with my youngest we stopped for some eats in New Liskeard and got a picture at the road side attraction.
We put in a good day of paddling trying out the canoe at White Lake Provincial Park. As you can tell from the look on the big guy's face he wasn't to crazy about the two slimy pike we snagged.
When packing up camp, I caught a movement in the woods and grabbed the camera. If you look close you can see a deer watching us.
