SUNSET ON GRAND BEND'S PIER
It's 3:15 a.m. Friday morning & of course I am wide awake sitting in my recliner. The patio door beside me is open with a slight wisp of cooler air bringing in the sounds of nearby crickets. I love the sound of crickets. A great horned owl can be heard in the pine forest. I am saddened now by the Owl's sound. I am reminded of the little Horned Owl we tried so hard to save a couple of months ago. Night has always been my favorite time & I now feel a kinship with the Owl.
LOOKING NORTHWARD ALONG THE LAKE HURON SHORELINE (When Kelly & I first met back in 1993, this quiet & not well known beach is one of the first places I took my little sweety:))
GRASS GROWING ALONG GRAND BEND'S BEACH BOARDWALK
The thought occurred to me sitting here that maybe I should start the blog early today just in case. I am aware of a feeling in my chest that I have not had for many, many, years & I think the last time I felt this feeling in my lungs it was referred to as the opening round of a chest cold. I have been doing something these last bunch of days in this humidity that I now seem to recall is a 'no-no!!' I have had the A/C vents in the mobility van blowing directly on me for hours at a time.
Figured I'd better start the blog early just in case I end up at the end of this day in a somewhat altered physical state. I am not prone to illness but then again......I'm not exactly 18 anymore either. Geeeezzzz, when did that change!!
IN THIS PHOTO YOU CAN SEE THE PIER & LIGHTHOUSE IN THE BACKGROUND (and some sailboats too)
Thanks to everyone for the encouraging comments since my brief techno-meltdown at the computer keyboard Wednesday night. That one word blog seems to have garnered more of a response than my long drawn out posts generally do so I guess that should really tell me something. Mr. Blabberfingers here needs to pay much good attention to this!!!!
I am now nearly 3 days behind in my blog readings & of course the guilt feelings are really having a field day with my emotions about that. It just seems there are so many blogs out there to read & the numbers are increasing daily. I have got myself into a position now where trying to keep up with them all is becoming a bit of a time problem for me. And of course I always feel bad for not dropping comments on all the blogs too. I probably need a bunch of non working, cold, wet, rainy days to get myself back up to speed again.
Well, it's nearly 5 a.m. so that means it's shower & coffee time for another beginning to a new day. Pip Pip.......here we go:))
Well, it is now 7:30 Friday night & it is a good thing I started this blog off in the wee hours of this morning. Had myself a very busy 12 hour day & whatever virus or cold bug I have in my chest at the moment has seen fit to remove my voice. Whether it's from the vans A/C or a bug I've picked up in one of the nursing homes I don't know. When I try to talk, I squeak!! Needless to say, I am feeling like an old bag of dirt so I'm just going to add a few pics & call it a day. Luckily I don't have to work tomorrow but there are runs lined up for me Sunday & Monday. Maybe tomorrow I will just keep a low profile around the house, stay out of the heat & humidity & get caught up on the latest buzz out here in blog land. And oh yes, I hear there has been some more buzz alright:))
