The other day we headed out for a drive over to Thornbury and came back, by the back roads. It wasn't a long drive, but it was nice. We hit the harbour first, and then came back past the apple orchards I took too many pictures for one post, so I'll break it into two.

Went for a Drive
These are the high density Red Prince orchards west of Clarksburg. They're just getting to the age where they'll have a substantial crop.
No sign of enough staff from our evening care agency for tonight, and I'm worried about tomorrow night. The girl on the weekend is more reliable.
But I've been reading about the privatization of home care here in Ontario, and how service and treatment of staff declines once you have a corporation skimming off profits. I've watched the CBC Marketplace expose, written them and heard back, and now I'm compiling information to understand the broader issue. I thought we were just up against a poorly managed agency, but now I get the impression that we're up against a Conservative government's secret plot to make a profit off elderly who need care and the staff who provide it.
