I TOOK THIS HARVEST MOON PIC LAST SEPTEMBER FROM OUR FRONT YARD
Tuesdays low 80F humidity laced one day heat wave did a mighty fine job in re-activating our backyard Cricket Orchestra this morning. I opened our patio door about 6 a.m. to a host of squeaking sounds. Dozens of little cricket legs sawing out their summer like tunes. What a nice way to start the day.
Heavy thunderstorms in the night made for a rough night at the Bayfield Bunch household but we were up & at em anyway before 5 a.m. At 6:28 our little 2 car convoy rolled out of the driveway into the rain slicked darkness heading for London Ontario & our destiny with the, TRAILER HITCH CENTER. ETA 8 a.m. I led the way with the Jeep & Kelly followed in the Santa Fe. We had our walkie-talkies along in case we got separated. (cell phones too) I knew where the trailer hitch place was but Kelly didn't. It was an uneventful drive & we even punched our way right through London's morning rush hour to reach our 8 o'clock destination right on the nose.
They took the Santa Fe into the shop first & removed the tow bar assembly that could later be used with the Jeep. We decided to leave the tow plate on the Santa Fe just in case something happened to the Jeep at some point & we had to revert back to the Santa Fe for a tow vehicle. As soon as we had the Santa Fe back we headed out for breakfast. Kelly dropped me off back at the trailer place & she headed back to Bayfield via Winners, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, & probably a few dozen other little shopping stops on her way out of the big city.
WE HAVE HAD A 'ROADMASTER' HITCH ASSEMBLY FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS & IT HAS PERFORMED FLAWLESSLY
I dozed out in the waiting room until the Jeep was finished at 10:45. Snapped a quick pic of the new installation & there was no stopping for shopping for this guy as I high tailed it out of town just as fast as my little Jeepster could take me. At the stroke of noon I was back home & stretched out in my recliner. Mission accomplished.
The solenoid switch that arrived for our Motor Home at Ron's FOUR SEASON PERFORMANCE place today was the wrong one & Ron had to hastily order another switch & this time right from the solenoid switch manufacturer in Iowa. He's hoping to have the rig done by the end of the week. I still had Ron's truck at home so took it back to him in Grand Bend where Kelly picked me up about 20 minutes later. Then, it was back to Bayfield for the two of us.
PATIENTLY WAITING FOR THE RIG TO RETURN HOME & FILL THIS VOID
So, there you have it. A blow by blow description of my day. Now don't you wished you had moved on to something more exciting in someone else's blog...... Yep, I thought so:))
A cabbie picks up a Nun. She gets into the cab, and notices that the very handsome cab driver won't stop staring at her. She asks him why he is staring.
He replies: "I have a question to ask you but I don't want to offend you."
She answers , "My son, you cannot offend me. When you're as old as I am and have been a nun as long as I have, you get a chance to see and hear just about everything. I'm sure that there's nothing you could say or ask that I would find offensive."
"Well, I've always had a fantasy to have a nun kiss me." She responds, "Well, let's see what we can do about that: #1, you have to be single and #2, you must be Catholic."
The cab driver is very excited and says, "Yes, I'm single and Catholic!" "OK" the nun says. "Pull into the next alley."
The nun fulfills his fantasy, with a kiss that would make a hooker blush. But when they get back on the road, the cab driver starts crying. "My dear child," says the nun, "why are you crying?" "Forgive me but I've sinned. I lied and I must confess, I'm married and I'm Jewish."
The nun says, "That's OK. My name is Kevin and I'm going to a Halloween party."
Tourists see the world, travelers experience it.
Until one has loved an Animal, part of their soul remains un-awakened.
