STOPPED TO TAKE A FEW RURAL PICS FOR TONIGHT'S BLOG ON MY WAY HOME TODAY
The mobility van job has kept me busy the past couple of days & I will be off again tomorrow morning. Transported a 101 year old lady in a wheelchair today & that is the oldest person I have ever had in the van. Had to be extra careful to avoid potholes in the road & made all my turns slow & wide.
CORN ROWS WANDER OVER THE HILLS
The other retired 'full time' driver will be back from his month of holidays next week & that will pretty much spell the end of my hours for the rest of the summer. Too bad because I've always liked the job but it's just the way it is!!
Chow time at our house is always a bit of a 3 ring doggy circus. Checkers is on a medicated type of dog food & little Cora's food is a smaller kibble making it easier for her to chew. The two big guys, Max & Checkers wolf down their food so fast it makes lightning look like slow motion. Cora, aka Motormouse, is a slow eater & likes to have a drink of water with her kibble & this is where Kelly or I come into the food picture. We have to rigorously defend Motor's food dish until she gets back from the water dish. When she is eating, the big guys hover very close by like a couple of buzzards with their eyes zeroed in on the little Motor's food dish. They are hoping she will leave some for whoever gets to her dish first when she walks away....... Yep, always a big 3 ring meal time circus alright.
PLEASE DAD, DON'T LET THESE BIG GUYS GET MY SUPPER AGAIN.......
Only ever had one serious incident over food sharing though. Couple years ago while boondocking in Borrego Springs Kelly dropped a piece of chicken on the floor. Both Checkers & the little Motormouse lunged for it. That resulted in a very nasty scrap & by the time I got the two of them separated blood had been drawn on both sides. We could tell they both felt really bad about the whole incident & we're not sure who apologized to who first but they have been their usual best pal selves ever since.
HAD TO LAY FLAT ON MY BACK FOR THIS PHOTO & THAT'S MY RIGHT FOOT AT BOTTOM RIGHT
I was surprised to see we had two new 'Followers' today. Things have been really slow in that department since returning from the west a few months ago so I really do appreciate both followers for climbing aboard the Bayfield Bunch travel blog. A really big thank you to Karen & Jedsmom. You gals know how to pick up a feller's spirits alright. Hope the blog doesn't get too cranky for you sometimes.
FIELDS OF BEANS
My van travels on Wednesday took me through a little burg with the name of Molesworth. Now, I don't really know how much a Mole is worth on today's market but I bet the few people living in Molesworth do.
WE ARE A MAINLY FLAT TYPE AGRICULTURAL LAND HERE
My travels today took me to the town of Winghan Ontario. I was on the early side so rolled into Tim Horton's parking lot to set a spell. Counted 19 cars lined up going through the drive-thru & I'm sure that daily morning line up was repeated hundreds & hundreds of times all over the area at every other Tim Horton's as well. They sure do a booming business.
LOOKS LIKE ONE OF THE LOCAL REGULARS HEADING IN FOR HIS MORNING COFFEE AT TIM'S:))
SQUEAKING INTO THE DRIVE-THRU LINE..."MOVE OVER YA BIG BUNCH OF MOSSMAGATORS!!!!"
An email just came across my desk & maybe across yours too. Haven't had a chance to read it all but I think the gist of it is having to do with RV Parks & RV Park reviews etc. Has something to do with iPhone access too. (I'm still on rotary dial 101) As you all know, we are not big RV Park people but I will include the link here if you want to have a look at it. I'll take a second look at this later....RVparking Just figured all you RV Park folks might be interested.
