PIONEER PARK'S STAIRWAY TO THE BEACH
What a welcome bonus it was to wake up this morning in the exact same place I had gone to bed last night. That could only mean one thing.....I had finally had myself a decent night's sleep thanks to the codeine in the Dimetapp medicine I took last night. Am definitely feeling a bit better today & will hopefully be totally out of this thing by the time my anti-biotic program ends in another 9 days.
Sleep has been a problem for me this past 7 or 8 years & it was one of the things discussed with my NP yesterday. She has already scheduled me back to the Medical Center next week for blood tests regarding cholesterol etc, followed by another consultation on Sept 13th to work on my sleep disorder problem amongst other things........ Now, I think that's just about enough about all this medical stuff for awhile. It seems my posts have become focused on this health issue over the past week & a half & I think it's time I moved myself forward.
Had the doggy guys on the trail this morning by 7:15 & when we got back I decided it was time I spent a little extra effort & fixed myself up a fine breakfast for a change. Right from scratch I toasted myself up a nice stack of Eggo Waffles. It sure pays off to go the extra mile for oneself once & awhile. I can be quite a little creative food connoisseur when I want to be you know.
BAYFIELD'S MAIN BEACH CAN BE SEEN AT TOP CENTER
For lunch I squeaked myself into town & picked up a 6" Tuna sub (turning out to be quite a foody blog eh) to go & headed for Bayfield's quiet Pioneer Park which overlooks Lake Huron. Ate two thirds of the sub & saved the rest for my furry Pals back home. Took a few pics, drove down to the harbor, took a few more & headed back home. It was sooooo nice to get out of the house for an hour & do something different for a change. Am looking forward to getting the bike out for a spin again soon too. Also realized today that I had better get scrambling on the Motor Home's preparation for this coming winter's travels. A long list of things to be attended to & I don't want to get myself caught in a last minute crunch thing.
A TRIO OF GUYS IN PERPETUAL MOTION:))

A CALM DAY ANCHORED JUST OFF BAYFIELD'S BEACH
And RETIRED ROD left a comment on yesterday's post that left me a bit concerned for a few seconds. In it he say's, "And lets hope the pills get your wits back about you, and you finally get over the stuff. We need you railing on something soon. Can't have all these yes mam posts, they are not the Al we know.".......... Well, if a solution is found to my nearly decade long lack of sleep problem in the coming weeks, will this mean I may run the risk of losing my......grumpiness!! Could more sleep possibly be the end of my realistic thinking & maybe push me over the edge into that unrealistic group of positive thinkers I am always so careful to avoid. Could it put my Cursmudgeon status into question. Would it mean one less person in the world to objectively look at the negative side of things hoping to maintain some kind of balance with the smiley face gang on the other end of the teeter totter. Well Rod, I can tell you this, sick or not, sleep or no sleep, I yam who I yam & that probably isn't going to change. I will always see things as they realistically are & not as the world's do gooder's & scam artists would have us think & believe they are. Not to worry my friend:))

GROANER'S CORNER:(( And remember, Never explain yourself to anyone because the person who likes you doesn't need to hear it and the person who dislikes you won't believe you anyway.....And for sure you know your getting older when you & your teeth don't sleep together anymore!!
