Our 4-H Beef Club has started

There is no sense in commenting on the weather because I believe we are all of the same opinion.
All I can say is Mother Nature better plan on making up for this later this year!

We planted a few more areas before the rain came last week and we were all set to start spraying but we are definitely out of the field for a few days!
We have had over two inches of rain in this last little wet spell.
I have had less at home, but you’d never know it. Just where we walk to get grain pails, sheep pens, etc., we are making a muddy trail.
There was no opportunity to cut grass and this means I will have a thick mess to deal with.
And if the sun does finally pop out–the grass will grow like crazy! This is a good thing for pastures.
I am holding off as long as I can moving my cattle out since I just don’t think I have the growth.
I also need to get around the rest of my fences. I am hoping I can do that one night this week.
I am sure it will be a wet muddy mess, and this increased my chance of losing a boot or getting the four-wheeler stuck. (I can do this even without this much rain.)

We were finally able to get our 4-H Beef Club started!
The animals need to register by June 1 with 4-H Ontario. Kids are so busy these days it is hard to set meeting dates.
I am working with Louis Bujold again this year and we have eight members in out club! We have three new members.

I was off to Fort Frances on Friday night to sell tickets for the Riverside Foundations Canada Day Cash Lottery!
Saturday night was the early bird draw and Salem Seid was the lucky winner for a fishing trip donated by the Manitou Weather Station.
Tickets are selling fast so get yours today to have a chance to win $10,000 on Canada Day!

Saturday night was ticket selling night at the Emo Arena at the Emo Walleye Classic!
They changed it up anf brought the boats in and around the entire arena! It was a great night and congratulations to Dan and Josh Pollard for having a great couple of fishing days!
Maddie was celebrating that evening at my house with a few girlfriends, but Marlee and Ella came along to the walleye tournament in hopes of getting in on some angler treats.
Ella won on the penny table so that was great!

This Saturday the Bliss family is hosting a memorial in memory of my Auntie Kathy (McDonald) at 1 p.m. at the Fort Frances Legion.
Sadly, she lost her cancer fight just a few weeks before her 67th birthday. Being the only girl, she was very special to her brothers and will be greatly missed.
Auntie Kathy was the perfect aunt–kind, considerate and always knew the right questions to ask.
She only had one son, Jamie.
We hope that you will join us in remembering a very special lady.
