It was a sad sight yesterday, we saw the last boat packed up and leave the marina, a sure sign that winter is coming :sad:

Time for some quiet reflection

But the play must go on...

Fall on the river

Another kind of "quiet" reflection...

Well, it's a good time to be moving here... one of the largest employers around here, the local Mill, just announced it's closure - probably going to be lots of houses for sale in the next year. For the cost of land/houses down south you could probably buy my whole neighborhood :eek:

I hate when those things happen. :sad: I read the same thing in my local paper this morning , they're closing one on Dec 18. Just before x-mas. :sad: Some of the people have been working there all their lives.

It's a hard thing, but not totally unexpected. Here too, the mill will close down in early December (I can't remember the exact date), probably better to have it before Christmas, then at least people get to enjoy time with their families, I guess :frustrated: The mill has only been here for 12 years and lots of people have been there since it opened. Sigh, such is the way for resource based economies :sad:

Gorgeous scenery, otter--and I love the picture of Molly gazing contemplatively into the ripples... :D

Too bad about the mill closing...especially before Christmas. :sad:

What's this "goose" you and dubyaD are talking about? Around here we have huge fiberglass figures...fish, mice with cheese, steers, beer steins...the usual. :D But no geese. :o

*Deep sigh* The peaceful solitude and grandeur of nature that is northern Ontario. Lucky you Otter! And even luckier Molly!!

my own *sigh*... this would be an amazing place to live if you didn't have to worry about working and if we could convince a great single vet to come and live here too :D:D

Hmmm, can't seem to find a picture of that goose anywhere in my collection... here's one from www.bigthings.ca

Nice goose! :D Lucky for you I don't have any pictures of the big northern or any of the rest of the tacky but popular figurines in WI. :p

don't blame you hazel... no shortage of "big" things here in Ontario too, i'm not surprised i'm not the only "local" who doesn't have pictures

We've got artist painted statues of whales, then polar bears that are out on display around the lower mainland for several months - then auctioned for charity but the are no where near that big - they are about 6.5 feet tall :D

Hi Otter, I went to high school in Wawa, I am from White River! Isn't that funny? I have tones of friends and family that work at the mill you just mentioned, and the mill in WR is also closed.

I am in Calgary, if you decide to come west....pm me....if you need anything

Well, i'm not sure about need Ford Girl but my hint earlier got no response...if we could convince a great single vet to come and live here too
so, if you know of any suitable single vets who you can send this way i'll be :cloud9::D:laughing:

I do hear the call of the west now and again .... thanks for your offer
