When you look at the above picture, please note the covering on the heads of the people--
Bug hats-----
This was our daughter, her husband and her oldest daughter---one Spring--about this time of year.


If one is not working in the garden, one can get away with just a mess hat-{-like in the picture)-
These bugs bite--usually around the face--- but when they are out in full force, they will bite where ewer they can get inside your clothing-
This lasts until the end of June--- Horrible things!--And only (I think!) --in Northern Ontario,

I must tell you that yesterday, it was son #1's Birthday --
so---in the morning, I made a batch of peanut butter cookies--- placed them in a decorated tin----Then I ordered some balloons from the florist--picked them up in the car, with HIMSELF riding sidesaddle--- and we drove to Son #1's house about 5pm, when he would be coming home from work.

This little girl greeted me ---- so excited--about her Dad's Birthday.
She made my day-- made it all worthwhile--all the time I took to make the cookies (which I did not really enjoy)- --
This child was so excited-- ran to the door as her Dad walked in, screaming, that there were balloons and it was his Birthday--

I had to tell you--that even tho you might begrudge the time spent to make someone's day special-----it is all worthwhile---
It's a gift you give from your heart--and this wee child absolutely loved it!

so---I am going to try to make some headway in the sunroom-- clean the winter dust out of it so we can use it--
And we have sunshine----Lord love a Duck!---AND BUGS----

And I did walk--before the black flies were up and at-er!
