No doubt about it, that Motormouse has my number alright & she has learned all to quick how to lay a complete quilt trip on me. She does it with her big brown sad eyes & she does it with her little round sad face. And, she’s doing it to me every morning now. As soon as Kelly is out the door headed for Deer Park that little Mouse gets right to work on me real quick. To make a long story short, we ended up in Goderich again this morning for a Burrito at McDonalds!! And, I already know she is going to be right on my case first thing in the morning again. And, I already know that she already knows that I have become such a big soggy push over too.
Aside from our Burrito trip this morning it turned out to be a quiet day. When traveling I have a tendency to read a fair bit but while home for the summer I generally never read a thing. However, I started a book Saturday & finished it up today. Obviously it wasn’t a big long book.
EVEN A SLUG DESERVES TO HAVE IT'S PICTURE TAKEN
It’s not likely Kelly & I will ever get ourselves up to Alaska but Sue & Mo over at THE MOHO AND OTHER TRAVELING TALES will have the big wheels rolling north in just a few days. You may want to get on board early as the ladies excitedly go through all their final last minute check lists.
THIS IS A TOTALLY FRANTIC & BLURRY PHOTO OF ME BEING ATTACKED BY AN ANGRY RED WINGED BLACKBIRD AFTER I STRAYED TOO CLOSE TO IT'S NEST
Had a few questions from readers lately. First Question: Someone asked about the part time mobility van job I used to do when home for the summers. Over the past couple of years the company I drove for was swallowed up several times by larger companies & after the last swallow up this past winter I decided it was time for me to pack it in. After talking with another driver & reading some of the new company rules & regulations I could see that my already sparse part time hours would become even sparser. I would also have to re-apply for my old job & then be subjected to an interview. Maybe years ago I might have considered that but not any more. No way Jose & I was out of there!! Second Question: A few posts ago I had a photo of a cemetery with a building at the far end of the grounds. A reader wondered if that was a house or a Church. It is a Church, but I don't think it is used anymore. Third Question: JUDY wondered what the heck the very last photo in my post Saturday night was all about. I will post it again below. The picture was taken with a telephoto lens when I was trying to photograph a bird in our cement bird bath. Just as I hit the shutter, the bird took off to the right & I only caught the dark blur of it's hasty retreat. I cropped the blur out & then proceeded to make a few small changes to the otherwise unappealing photo. What you see in the foreground is the disturbed green algae colored water after the bird's exit. What could be taken for mountains on the horizon is actually the rim of the cement bird bath. The purple Astilbe flower was actually a whitish pink so for the purpose of creativity in this photo I added some Picasa 'Graduated Tint' & changed the color of the flower & the background. The background is also totally blurred because of the long telephoto lens & short depth of field. I have included a couple other bird photos taken at the same time to show what the scene looked like in reality.
And, did you know that fellow RV Blogger's Homer & Lucille have morphed into PHANNIE & MAE:)) Yep, it’s true. Homer & Lucille’s, or is it Mike & Sandy’s last post was December 13th 2010 but they are now back again after having undergone a few Texas changes including an entirely different RV. But, who were Homer & Lucille & who or what is Phannie & Mae? Confused? Well, you better hop on over there & let Homer or Phannie or is it Mae or Sandy or was it Mike or Lucille....awwwww nuts now I'm even confused!! Better let the folks at Phannie & Mae fill y'all in:))
NO, THIS IS NOT HOMER, SANDY, PHANNIE, MAE OR EVEN MIKE OR LUCILLE...KELLY MIGHT TELL YOU IT LOOKS MORE LIKE AL FROM THE BAYFIED BUNCH!!
