When I was a kid on 'The Farm on the Fifth', I was lucky to be invited by my friend Sharron Pat Kelly, and her family to camp with them on Beausoleil Island on Georgian Bay.

It is typical of Bluffo to go off into the jungle in search of bananas, monkeys or blowfish and not return for hours -sometimes days. An unsettling feeling has come over me this morning, perhaps because it has been pouring rain all ni... Read More
