AUTUMN'S PAINT BRUSH HAS TOUCHED OUR BACK YARD
I was hoping for one of those early Autumn warm sunny Sunday motorcycle touring mornings but it was not to be. Rain in the night & the day started off with a heavy overcast. Not really conducive to a leisurely bike ride through the countryside.
A CASE OF MASTMANIA IN BAYFIELD'S HARBOR THIS MORNING
There are countless thousands of examples when it comes to deception in our market place these days. And it is not just limited to the market place. I believe we the people are completely surrounded by lies & deceptions coming at us from all sectors of society but I'm not going to get into all that. Instead, I have one simple example of our ever growing descent into the madness of greed.
MAX & CHECKERS PLAYING 'STICKS'
I bought a plastic container of Soy powder yesterday & when I opened it the container was only half full of product. What a total waste of plastic & what an insult to the environment. This is nothing less than thievery. A blatant slap in the face of common good. Prime example of deceptive business practices which are sooooo commonplace these days. Customer sees the big container on the shelf & naturally thinks the container will be filled to the top with the product. Remember many years ago when that is the way it was. Well, those days are long gone & it angers me to no end to be continually ripped off & insulted by these greed infested companies.
THIS FIELD OF BEANS IS ABOUT READY TO BE HARVESTED
Guess I'm from the older generation when you could count on things being as they seemed!! Whether it's the false bottom laundry detergents, narrow toilet paper rolls, shrinking coffee cups, skinnier cereal boxes or whatever. Are there no honest people left in this world anymore. Very, very, few I'm afraid!!
THESE PICS CLEARLY SHOW THE SOY CONTAINER HALF EMPTY
The gloomy clouds blew out of town about noon & along with them went my gloomy mood. Considered taking the above rant out but no, that was how I felt, & that is exactly the reality of how things are in our society now!!
THE HULLET MARSH IS MAN MADE. CREEKS WERE DAMMED TO CREATE THESE LARGE MARSH AREAS & BERMS WERE DOZED UP BETWEEN THEM. THESE DOZER TRACKS ARE ALONG THE TOP OF A BERM
Worked on a little Jeep project this afternoon. A friend had a similar air intake to the air breather that I have in the Jeep. There is a round opening where air goes in & in his case, a rodent went in as well. Bruce ended up with mice in his air filter box & that effectively shut him down one day on the road when his engine was starved for air. He brought over a chunk of wire mesh a couple weeks ago & suggested I cover that hole up so today I cut it to fit & put it over the Jeep's air intake. Don't need no critters crawling in there & making themselves at home in the air filter case.

LIGHT BULB ON LEFT IS A STANDARD BULB & THE ONE ON THE RIGHT IS WHAT CAME OUT OF MY UNCLE HARRY'S OLD 50'S LAMP.....QUITE A DIFFERENCE IN SIZE
Well, tomorrow afternoon I am off to see my Nurse Practitioner person for the test results from the bucket of blood I gave them a week or so ago. I am hoping she is going to have some answers for me as to why I am still coughing & why I can still feel congestion in my lungs. Why am I still getting sore throats off & on. There is still something amiss inside my neck & chest & I hope we can get to the bottom of it!!
Did you know Maxine has some new boyfriends!! She is seeing 5 gentlemen every day. She said, as soon as I wake up, Will Power helps me get out of bed. Then I go to see John. Then Charlie Horse comes along, & when he is here, he takes a lot of my time & attention. When he leaves, Arthur Ritis shows up & stays the rest of the day. He doesn't like to stay in one place very long, so he takes me from joint to joint. After such a busy day, I'm really tired & glad to go to bed With Ben Gay.
What a life! Oh, yes, I'm also flirting with Al Zymer and thinking of calling JACK DANIELS or JOHNNY WALKER to come over and keep me company......Eeeeee Gads, will it ever stop!!
