IT'S NOT OFTEN WE GET ALL 3 GUYS TOGETHER ON THE MORNING TRAIL ANYMORE:((
Took the rear seat out of the Jeep this morning so that gives us a bit of cargo space behind the seats. Did the same thing with the mini-van when we first brought it home & hauled out the center bench seat leaving only the rear bench for Max to sleep on during the day. I think we will just leave the Jeep's hard top on for now & not get in a stew about having to put the soft top up. We haven't got a hope of doing that on our own & will just maybe wait until some other experienced Jeep people can show us how it's done. I don't want to get in a snit about it & then risk breaking something.
COULD THIS BE THE START OF SOME SERIOUS MOUNTAIN GOATING FOR JEEPERS
Someone in our 'Shout Box' wondered about our departure date for this fall but it's way too early for us to figure that out yet & there is an outside chance we might not make it all. With Kelly's Dad's health steadily failing & my Uncle now in a nursing home we are in a bit of quandary as to what to do. We chanced it the last couple years but this winter is looking more iffy. If we were out in the middle of the desert somewhere in Arizona or California & something happened we would be hard pressed to make it all the way back to Canada in time. Or, one of us would have to fly back & the other stay put with the dogs. Kelly & I have differing opinions on what to do about this winter so we'll have to wait & see what happens. Just too early to make any hard & fast decisions or plans yet.
OPEN THAT DAM GATE WILL YA.....I'M A JEEP & I'M GONNA GET DIRTY!!!!
I implemented that Live Writer fix Rick suggested the other day to combat my Error 400 problem. Kelly read that putting things like '&' in the Category line at the bottom can cause the error too so I haven't been putting any category words in at all these past few days. We'll see how it goes.
OK, SO WHERE IS A BIG MUDDY POT HOLE WHEN YOU NEED ONE!!
Since the humidity departed our area a few days ago our weather has been about as perfect as it gets. Lots of sunshine & big puffy white clouds. Our rural countryside is looking so beautiful & I can feel a wee photo safari coming on soon.
THIS IS WHERE THE TIRES MEET THE FLOWERS!!
Slipped down to Mitchell this afternoon for a couple hours to visit my Uncle Harry. My Aunt Jean from Florida was there & we were able to get Harry up & into a wheelchair for a little spin around the nursing home grounds outside. Despite the pain Harry was in today he really did enjoy getting outside for about an hour. Nice back road drive (the highways are crammed for the long weekend) returning to Bayfield with a few Jeep photos along the way. Oh no, not more Jeep photos!! Bare with me folks.....the novelty will wear off soon enough:((
BACK OFF BOOGALOO I'M A COMIN THROUGH
GROANER'S CORNER:)) And here's a great little exercise program for people over 60..........
Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.
With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.
Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.
Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level.)
After you feel confident at that level, try putting a potato in each bag:))
Tourists see the world, travelers experience it.
Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened
