I SOMETIMES USE FILE PHOTOS WHEN I HAVEN’T TAKEN ANY PICTURES FOR THE DAY SO OCCASIONALLY YOU MAY SEE SOME OF MY PICS REPEATED BECAUSE I FORGET WHICH ONE’S I HAVE USED BEFORE….TONIGHT’S LEAD PHOTO MAY BE AN EXAMPLE OF THAT………… (NIKON D50 WITH FILL IN FLASH)
Thursday night I took the Pheebs out for her first night walk under a near full moon. A wispy bank of clouds skudded across the night sky casting moon shadows on the roadside. Temperatures were warm and the full Harvest moon will soon be upon us in just a few days. I kept the Pheebs on a leash until at some point in the near future I will be able to walk her in the darkness without a leash. Reminded me of years ago at the old Weenie Roast Ranch when Max and I would be out for our nightly walks on the country road. Whenever we would see a car coming we would both duck off into a cornfield, long grass or behind some shrubs or trees. One never knew who was in those cars or why they were are out on the country roads late at night. From experience I knew it was often young guys drinking!!
METHINKS THESE ARE WHITE EGRETS IN THE HULLETT MARSH
A beautiful early Autumn day. There is a stillness now in the quiet morning air with only the sounds of Crickets and a few Robins in the forest. Yellow Golden Rod is flowering along the trail with wild purple Astors reminding me of my first days of Public School oh so very long ago. A bit of humidity back into the air but not enough to keep Pheebe and I off the trail for another walk in the afternoon.
I’VE HEARD OF CROWS ON A FENCE, BUT…………….. BUZZARDS ON A BARN!! (NIKON D40)
It was an exciting time 9 years ago right now. We were in the long process of moving from the old Weenie Roast Ranch to where we live at the moment here in the 5 Seasons Estates. I would load up our then Dodge Pick-up truck and utility trailer with household items. In the morning Kelly and I would head in to St. Mary's Ontario to drive morning school bus. Soon as we got back around 9 I would jump into our big Dodge and head off for Bayfield with the load. After unloading things into our Mobile unit I would then be outside with my shovel and rake working away on the landscaping. At 2 p.m. I was back in the truck for the 40 minute drive back to St. Marys and the afternoon school bus run. I remember all that so well because the Autumn weather was so beautiful and my excitement was so paramount. It has gone into my memory banks as two of the greatest months I can remember this past decade. Those busy moving days concluded with us moving in to our present digs on Halloween Night of 2002:))
OUR TRIP’S TAIL GUNNER, AND BY THE WAY, THIS IS MY IDEA OF…………… ‘TWEETING’
For anyone wondering what a Macerator is or what it does for your rig, just slip over to KAREN'S POST for a look and she will give you the poop, or should I say, the scoop on how that all works:))
I HAVE PLANTED LOTS OF SUMAC AROUND OUR PLACE
Searching my photo files for a few pictures tonight I came across some pictures that I had taken a year ago while in the Goderich Harbour. They show the large salt loading crane at the Sifto Salt mine which was blown over in the tornado several weeks ago resulting in the death of the crane operator.

AFTER THE TORNADO
Thanks to readers and folks on the RV NET FORUM who have, and still are sending in their ideas and suggestions to my inquiry's about the 4 Corners area of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona. Lots of good info regarding the route, weather, places to stay and things to see. General consensus is for us to leave Bayfield earlier if at all possible due to the iffyness of the mid October weather in the Rocky Mountains at that time. Sounds like the WOLF CREEK PASS will be an interesting if not not exciting ride. What is life without some good old necessary nervous excitement along the way to keep the aging blood coursing through one’s veins eh:))
