Dear Cottage Life

We bought a cottage recently, so I picked up a copy of Cottage Life. And what’s the first story I flip to? “Talk Dirty to Me” (Spring ‘18), all about poop. As the proud owner of my first septic system, I guess I have to read it. Great to get the poop on poop.—KATHY BUCKWORTH, VIA INSTAGRAM

Your Letters


My heart almost stopped when I read “The First Rule of Flight Club” (Zim Weighs In, Spring ‘18). As a member of a float plane family, I cannot imagine anything that is more a part of our heritage. We would head out aboard Dad’s Piper PA-12 for a fishing trip or simply a quick ride around the local area, and the scenery was mindblowing. Dropping in on friends on nearby lakes or a flyover with a wing tip wave was a treat. Now my brother is following in Dad’s footsteps with a Piper PA-12 of his own. I feel the same passion each time I see or hear the plane pass over my camp. It is sad that someone in cottage country would even suggest banning float planes. I cannot imagine having it any other way. Zim hit the nail on the head with this one. We have many other things to be concerned about. —Jay Mitroff, Bass Lake, Ont.
