Whiling away at the Want-n-While... Saturday

Sadly, all good things must end. We departed the haven, leaving behind some Lego artwork - a tow-truck and crazy-ass mega-tow truck-hauler vehicle, and a somewhat impressionist likeness of the five of us gathered on and around the dock.

And we left behind a completely fictitious entry in the guest book, designed to raise eyebrows – or goose bumps. The entries go like this:

Saturday August 11

Wow! What a beautiful cottage and a beautiful lake! We love the Paper Birch trees. It’s so nice and quiet here! We heard loons calling from far away. The windmill and the water cooler make a subtle symphony of strange noises!

Sunday August 12

We swam and played games all day – all four of us. Some chipmunks came by. Heard the loud call of a heron as he soared low across the shoreline. Beautiful! The setting sun makes the lake look like wine!

Monday August 13

Had breakfast in town. Bought a big bag of peanuts and fed the chipmunks all day. A moose came by! He seemed to check us out for a bit and then wandered away.

Wow! What a storm! Magnificent! The lightening on the water plays tricks with your eyes. Looks like faces emerging from the lake!

Tuesday

There’s some trees down from the storm. A few have fallen across the laneway. There are strange footprints all over the beach. I think Stevie is playing a joke on us. Belinda and I played Scrabble. Amber and Stevie played a game called Trouble. The chipmunks did not come today.

Wednesday

Worked on the laneway most of the day. At this point there are quite a few trees blocking it. Came face to face with a bear. It was huge. We stared at each other a long time before it ran away from me. It’s so very quiet. The setting sun makes the lake look like blood.

Thursday

There’s a big puddle in the kids room. It rained heavily all night – which softened the ground. Made it easier to dig the holes. Ideally they should have been deeper but there’s so much work to do. So many trees to chop down for the driveway. All work and no play makes Brian a dull boy.

Friday

Filled in the three holes. It’s so quiet. Even the windmill and the water cooler are silent. Played solitaire. Won 66 times. Lost 600 times. There are puddles all over now. They look like wine.



Not sure how well the stunt will be received! That’s it folks. Cap’n Vino has posted his own rendition of events at the Want-n-While here on Freak Magnet Dave.

A wonderful retelling of the week. Some details I failed to recall for some unknown reason.
The Squeeze and I are most impressed with the pictures too. We're going to have to swap our pictures. Pablo and I have swapped all of ours already.

Oops...almost forgot. Gotta check this out:

The story wasn't nearly as suspenseful as Dave made it sound. Dang it.
