Blackfly

What in the heck!? I understand Kingsville got a shipment of these little buggers in…? I was under the impression that they were reserved for well wooded cottages way up in Northern Ontario. Well evidently not. I was in Lakeside Park last week and what I thought was a harmless housefly began to gnaw away at my anklebone. I am not sure how Southern Ontario came to inherit these little pests, although I think I can speak for everyone when I say we are not very excited about it.

If you aren’t sure what I am referring to – well here is a great little number that will illustrate for you where they might of come from, and where they need to stay; a National Film Board short by Chris Hinton:

Ice Cream

This kid is happy.  And can you blame him? He’s got a soft ice cream cone in his hands.  This stand is on Division road, a few blocks from Main.  It is a staple summer stop, and my only complaint is that I’ve had to wait 5 people deep each time I’ve gone.  No matter;  it is worth waiting in line for – I prefer mine chocolate dipped, or in a coke float – if you are lucky you’ll burn a few calories while standing there, since you’ll put on a few once you eat one of these guys. One way or the other, the stuff is delicious.
