Dear Canimites

The balmy weather continues with scattered sun and showers.

Now that I have said that, it is pretty well guaranteed that by the time you read this, we’ll be back in the deepfreeze. But at the moment, it’s warm.

Sheila caught me dragging the lawnmower into the shop for a very late fall service. “Not quite that warm,” she said. To which I replied, “No worries, I’ll set the blade high.”

Community Club

Events are back in swing after the break.

On Tuesday nights, Cribbers are whooping it up at Margo’s Cabin. The first night back 10 players duked it out, leaving the floor littered with eight skunks. Margo Wagner was on track for three perfect nights in a row until Bill Morehouse did her in on the last hand of the last game leaping ahead from behind with 24 points.

There is a presentation coming on Internet safety – watch for details.

Mark your calendar for the next Community Dinner at El Caballo’s, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m.

The Book Club will meet on Feb. 17 at 10 a.m. at the home of Marga Hausmann to discuss Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati. I hear people are enjoying the book and may read another in the same series. Everyone is welcome.


Dave Whitwell of Clusko Logging in Williams Lake says the company is working on a BC Timber Sales block on the 7000 Road, harvesting spruce and subalpine fir and pine.

The saw logs, 15 loads a day, are going east on the South Canim Road to Canfor’s mill at Vavenby, while lighter logs are going to the Ainsworth Mill in 100 Mile House. This cutting will continue into next year.

Logging truck traffic is going both ways now on the South Canim Road. Murphy’s Law dictates that you will meet one on a blind corner. Use caution and keep your radio tuned to the new RR3 channel.

The lake is still completely open, with buffleheads and other diving ducks feeding merrily.

That’s all for now. Until next time, here’s wishing you many blessings.
