Thanks to everyone for their kind comments on yesterday's blog. Much appreciated & every comment is taken to heart. Thank-you folks:))
I like the music option Joe & Sherri from SOMEWHERE IN TIME have put into their blog. It sits right at the top left where it is easily accessible & gives readers the option of whether they want to click on it & listen to Joe & Sherri's blog music. For air card users it saves them from getting hit with bandwidth gobbling audio when they click onto somebody's site. I'm not opposed to music on blog sites, I just think the blogger should give their readers a choice.
To-day begins the 'crunch!!' It is 5 days from lift off & this is the week things get really busy & I like that. This big summer travel log jam is beginning to shudder under the rising pressure of change & our traveling adventures will finally burst forth once again Saturday morning. The excitement is not as much about where we are going as it is the fact that we just are finally going!!
If anybody out there is having trouble sleeping I have an excellent homemade cure for you. Park yourself in front of your computer, put on your favorite relaxing music, turn down the lights, & click on my SUNRISES & SUNSETS photo album. When it opens, look to the top right for the word 'Slideshow' & click that. I have enough sunrise & sunset photos here guaranteed to put you to sleep in no time at all. Took a lot of them at the ranch last winter in Arizona. Remember, it is not likely you will ever reach the end of the slideshow before you are completely, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz'd!!
We had company to-day from Woodstock Ontario. My 93 year old Uncle Harry & his two lady friends, Grace & Helen came this afternoon bringing sausage. Guess I should explain that. In my home town of Tavistock Ontario there were always two butcher shops & one of them was called Krugs. Ever since I was a child we have enjoyed Krug's frying sausage. I remember years ago whenever any of our American friends & cousins knew somebody was coming for a visit from Tavistock they would always request the folks to bring as much Krugs frying sausage as they could carry. I remember my Mother carrying shopping bags of sausage aboard the train bound for our cousins place in Chicago. That was a long time ago & back before all this silly food restriction nonsense at the border. Those sausage laden border crossing days are long gone now but Krug's butcher shop is still going strong & every time my Uncle Harry, Grace, & Helen come to Bayfield for a visit they always make a stop in Tavistock to bring along a big load of Krug's frying sausage. I ate so much frying sausage to-night I am going to have to go lay on the floor now & wallow. We won't have it again until late next spring when the Woodstock gang once again makes that Tavistock sausage stop & motors there way back on up here to Bayfield. My Uncle Harry is the man who made it all possible 7 years ago for Kelly & I to live where we do to-day:))
