The Guys Weekend
Really it is the Sisters weekend, Pat and her sisters and their mom get together for a weekend in July every year.  A few years back the husbands or brother-in-laws decided we would get together here at the acreage at the same time. It is usually four out of the six brother-in-laws that partake, but that's ok. We don't have an agenda so we do as we like, some of the time as a group and some of the time by our self.  Either way it is a good time.

We arrived Thursday night around 9 p.m. and got set up then spent some time around the camp fire. Friday morning,  three of the sisters, Pat, Donna and Audrey headed off to Gayle's, near Chatsworth, to meet up with Gayle, Cathy and Wendy.

The guys, Gerry, John, Tom and myself headed into Durham to get a few things. A stop at the LCBO, the grocery store, Home Hardware and fill the truck up with fuel. Back to the acreage to relax, We even got a game of horse shoes in.
Saturday brought more of the same. Late in the afternoon Tom decided that he wanted to go back into Durham and look around and then take us out for supper for fish and chips, so off we went. Great supper at a small place on the main street. We all had the fish and chips. The fish was Basa, always wanted to try it since reading about our friends Suzie and George eating it, very tasty. That evening was more relaxing around the fire.
Sunday morning we decided to go to Durham for breakfast then head over to Donna and Gerry's new piece of property and clear the lane way so we could drive all the way in.

Here we are at the new property. Lots of over growth to clear.
Deciding how to go about it.

John hitting the heavy stuff with the chain saw.

Finally we could drive all the way in. Less then two hours to get through 600 feet of lane way.

Time to head back and relax the afternoon away. When supper time came, we all had a feast of BBQ ribs, ( thanks for recipe George, yummy). The rain started and kept up all night. I retired early. Monday morning brought cold temps of 12 degrees and very windy. When our wives return we will pack up and head for home only to return next weekend for a family get together.

Until the next time, take care and thanks for stopping by.
