I Am Not At My Desk…

Groceries, bandages, cheap snorkel ensemble, propane tank… Give you three guesses.


All right! Turtle’s going camping!

Jack, E.g., and I are returning to Bon Echo Provincial Park, where we went camping two years ago. We are leaving this morning and will be away until Friday.

This time, we will have two doggies with us. Last year Cai accompanied us up the Bruce Peninsula. It was amusing to see him, at 8:30 pm, pawing at one or the other pup tent, asking to turn in for the night. We’ll try not to exhaust either him or Fergus on this trip, although rendering them happily tired would be good. “A tired dog is a good dog” is the expression, I think.

Unlike during our Paris vacation, I will be incommunicado on this trip. I have, however, scheduled a post for each day, so please continue to drop in and leave comments. I won’t be able to answer them until Saturday, but I look forward to reading them.

As a sneak peek, this is what I’ve prepared:

Monday: “Turtle’s Caption Contest”. Please come by and write a caption for the photo!

Tuesday: “Search Me”. Some search terms that have brought strangers to my blog, and why the terms make me smile.

Wordless Wednesday: Something came up that I wasn’t expecting.

Thursday: “Woof”. Wherein Turtle pretends to be a wolf.

We expect to be back mid-afternoon on Friday, and will be pretty busy, but hopefully I’ll have a moment to at least post a picture or two.

Meanwhile, if you’d like to read about my love for roasted marshmallows and how they make a great personal metaphor for blogging — I wrote this when my blog was just a little two-week-old baby — go see “Marshmallow Roast of the Vanities“.

If you haven’t yet read about my first trip to Bon Echo, and want to know a little more, you could read “Nanabush Chuckles“.

And if you haven’t seen what previous contest winners have won on this blog, I would humbly direct you to “A Few Lines on Striped Maples” and “Things are Crook in Tallarook“.

That oughta keep you out of trouble.

See you on the weekend!

    Have a good trip! 🙂

  2. You stay traveling. I think that is a great thing. I’ve always wanted to go away each and every weekend of my life. I’m currently running on the trip every quarter of the year. Which is just fine for me right now and the pockets too.

    Did I mention your pets have great names? I didn’t? Well, they do.

    Hope you are having a lovely, peaceful green break in the wilderness. I bet e.g. gets lots of great photos too.

    Post-trip reply: Thanks, everyone! We had some really good moments. I’m glad you like our pets’ names, UT. We came up with two of them; Fergus came with such a good puppy name, we decided to keep it.
