AFTER THE STORM I ZIPPED OUT OF THE PARK TO TRY & CATCH A RAINBOW BUT IT WAS ALREADY FADING IN THE RIGHT PHOTO
We have a live radar weather dome just east of Exeter Ontario which covers our area & we can see storms heading our way in real time. I used that computer site this morning to dodge between rain cells & get myself a couple of Pine trees dug up in the bush & planted back home.
Sun came out this afternoon & the humidity increased. Heard rumblings out over the lake & knew a storm was on it’s way in. Because we live in a forest setting we cannot see storms coming until they are on top of us. Skies turned dark enough to activate all our outside lights & I saw the turbulent clouds overhead boiling their way east. A heavy gust of wind signaled the coming rain & a minute later the skies opened up with a torrential downpour. Twenty minutes later the sun was shining.
My peanut butter of choice is the natural kind. No additives, no salt, etc. If I can’t find the natural stuff my second choice is Jif. For me, anything after natural or Jif peanut butter just doesn’t cut it. It was Kelly who turned me onto Jif many years ago. She won’t eat any other kind of commercial peanut butter. She is a big Jif lover………but there is a problem!! Canadians are hard pressed to find Jif in Canada. It is just not in the stores anymore. That fact irked Kelly so much she set up a group page about it on Facebook a year ago & vented her frustrations. Having done that she moved on to other things & basically forgot about the site after awhile because she had forgot to check off a box on the site to let her know of any responses. A couple days ago she happened to click on the site & found she had over 290 people in her group all discussing their thoughts, feelings & frustrations about not getting their Jif peanut butter!! (and probably wondering what had happened to the groups founder & moderator) Kelly is now back with the Facebook group at.....KELLY'S JIF PEANUT BUTTER SITE:))
THE GARDENS ALWAYS LOOK FRESHER AFTER A RAIN
Utah has always been one of my favorite States because of it’s majestic & rugged Canyon beauty. Martha & Terry from the GYPSY LIFE JOURNAL were just in CAPITAL REEF NATIONAL PARK & are currently heading for MOAB. Their boon docking site in Capital Reef would be right up our alley. Have been to Moab & area a couple times but would so much like to head back to Utah & see the rest of it like Canyonlands, Capital Reef, etc. Every time I see photos & read blogs of people traveling around the Western States I just want to jump out of my chair & go fire up the Motor Home & get back on the road again heading West!! JOE & NANCY just left Yellowstone & are heading for Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Another one of my favorite areas. Either I gotta quit reading travel blogs or I gotta go bury my head in the sand:((
OUR LILAC TREES ARE IN FULL BLOOM
A question in Sunday’s blog asks if I had taken the BIRD PHOTOS in my April 30th post. My answer to that is, yes:)) All the photos you see in my posts are mine & if on rare occasions I include a photo not taken by me I always state that it is not my photo. Thanks for the question Daniel:))
I have a very restless traveling Spirit & it has always been with me. Even more now than years ago. Many Snow Birds are quite content to settle back into their home routines for the summer but I am not one of them. Don’t mind being home for maybe a month at the most but that’s about it!! Like I have always said, life is too short to just be sitting around the house when there are so many places to see, experiences to be had & memories to be made. For you folks out there who have dreams of RV travels some day I say to you, “hold onto those dreams & work hard to make them a reality. Don’t deny yourself the beauty of North America. Just get out there whichever way you can & live the experience……..while you can!!”
THIS IS THE DEAD END ROAD MAX & I TOOK OUR NIGHTLY WALKS ON FOR THE PAST EIGHT & A HALF YEARS.........
GROANER’S CORNER:(( One bright Sunday morning the people of a beautiful small town awoke early to go to their local church. Before the service started, the townspeople sat in their pews and talked about their lives and their families.
Suddenly, at the altar, Satan appeared!! Everyone started screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling each other in their determined efforts to get away from Evil Incarnate. Soon, everyone was evacuated from the church except for one man, who sat calmly in his pew, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence. This confused Satan a bit. Satan walked up to the man and said, "Hey, don't you know who I am?" The man says, "Yep, sure do."
Satan asked, "Well, aren't you afraid of me?" The man replied, "Nope, sure ain't."
Satan, perturbed, asked, "And why aren't you afraid of me?" To which the man replies, "Well, I've been married to your sister for 25 years." --------------------------------------------------------------
