AN OLD MILL ACROSS THE RIVER IN GORRIE ONTARIO....(All of today's pics were shot with my point & shoot Canon Powershot A720IS.)
FOUND ME A NICE SHADE TREE TO PARK UNDER BETWEEN CLIENT RUNS THIS AFTERNOON
Nice to see the long shafts of early morning sunlight peeking through the pine trees. Looks like a big bright sunny day ahead. We need a good drying out for sure.
RICK just hit the 100 mark on his blog 'Followers' list on Sunday. Rumor has it he's going to invite everyone from the list out to Cowichan Bay next week for an, 'all the cookies you can eat fest.' Yay Rick:)) Neither Rick or I care for the word 'Followers' but that is what Google has decided to call blog readers who decide to publicly 'follow' along reading Google sponsored blogs so I guess that is the way it is. Can't be messin with Gargantuan Google you know!! Besides, they might put a hex on the 'Cookie Fest!!'
VIEW FROM THE DRIVER'S SEAT
The folks over at RV LIFE ON WHEELS just had a new Blue Ox tow package installed on their Jeep. The photos show a mighty fine set up & they are pleased with the results. I think John & Judy may be explaining a little more about the set up in tonight's blog too.
NOT OFTEN YOU SEE SIGNS LIKE THIS ANYMORE ALLOWING SWIMMING.....USUALLY IT'S 'NO SWIMMING' OR 'TRESPASSERS WILL BE EATEN!!'
Was surprised to see we had a new Follower today. A big welcome to N & J. Just about when I had about given up on seeing any more 'Followers' you guys rode into town & saved the day. JERRY had left a comment on Rick's blog about their 'Follower's list hitting a plateau. Don't feel bad Jerry, we're flat out over here on the Bonneville Salt Flats.
GEE, I WONDER WHY ALL THE FORMER GHOSTS LEFT TOWN!!
Now, speaking of Jerry & N & J. Jerry is just home from the Tucson Hospital recovering from knee replacement surgery so if there is anyone in the Benson Arizona area with a hockey stick & puck, how about going over to Jerry's & getting him outside for a good old game of road hockey in the next few days. Probably more fun than the upcoming physio he is dreading!! And check out N & J's DIARY OF A MIDLIFE CRUISER for a younger twist on their upcoming fulltime RV adventures. It's a blog layout with posts having a lively, light, bright & refreshingly springy feel to them. They are excited, & literally counting down the final few days before hitting the road. Just a little over 2 weeks to go. Drop by & share in their enthusiasm. Oh, & don't let the dental picture scare you.....Yikes!!
Another busy day & my mobility van travels again took me to & through small towns with names like Blyth, Londsborough, Belgrave, Bluevale, Wroxeter, Gorrie, & Fordwich. Which witch?? The little town I grew up in was named after another small town in England, Tavistock. About 6 miles east of my old home town is a little place called Punky Doodle's Corner. I have no idea what country Punky Doodlers come from. Do you suppose some of the young ruffians there might be called Doodle Punks. If there was a pet grooming place maybe they would even do Poodle Dunks:)) I better knock this off & get out of here.....me thunks!!
