RAYS OF MORNING SUNSHINE FILTERING THROUGH THE PINES ALONG OUR FOREST TRAIL THIS M0RNING
Hopefully, the last hot humid day of summer has wrung it's last beads of sweat out of me as I hang on the weatherman's words today that we'll not have another humid day like this until next summer some time. I sure hope that guy is right because I spent most of my day inside staying out of the heat. Definitely not my favourite kind of day.
Between trips to the southwest in the winter I generally clean the rigs bins out and store things up in the rafters of our car port. Spent some time in the cooler hours of this morning getting things down and dusted off for loading back into the rig. Every little bit helps as our departure date draws closer. I have noticed that time really seems to be slipping by this last while. Here we are in September already and how nice is that:))
Unbeknownst to us we had a fellow RV Blogger drop by Deer Park Lodge a couple days ago. Randy and Pam Warner from THE ROADRUNNER CHRONICLES were on their way from TOBERMORY Ontario to Port Huron on their way to Tennessee. Number 21 highway runs right through Bayfield and right past DEER PARK LODGE where Kelly works so Randy took the time to stop in and say Hello. Unfortunately, that was the morning Kelly and I had gone to visit my Uncle Harry. Randy had wrote us a note which we just got today. Thanks for stopping in Randy and sorry we missed you.
Hello and welcome to Debbie Potter who has just joined us as our latest Blog Follower. Always nice to see a new face on our Followers list:)) (nothing wrong with the old faces of course)
It is so nice to see toys flying through the air again as Motormouse and the Pheebs are learning to play together. Our after supper toy time has resumed as Motor teaches Pheebs the rules of the game. Rubber squeaky toys and furry teddy bears seem to be new for the Pheebster and what a blast it is to see the 2 furry kids racing around the living playing together. Just as she did when Checkers first joined our family years ago, Motor has established herself as the Boss over Pheebe. If push comes to shove it is the Motormouse who is the enforcer and Pheebe respects that. Just as Max, Checkers and the Mouse provided us with endless hours of entertainment over the years I can see Pheebs and the Motor will be doing the same thing. They have fast become big Pals and from the very moment I met Pheebe I could tell she had the type of personality that would get along just fine with our little Motormouse:))
A LITTLE DOGGY FACE REFLECTION
Not being a joiner of clubs anymore I recently turned down an invitation to join the newly forming Bayfield Camera Club. That was a hard decision for me because I was a member of the Stratford Camera Club years ago and enjoyed it at that time. But, it was the late 80’s and like I said, it was a different time. I am currently a member of the Tumbleweed Photo Group in Elfrida Arizona but that is kind of a different scenario with it being a very small group. For anyone interested in photography I would highly recommend joining a club because it is just about the best and fastest way to learn. If anyone in our area is interested in the Bayfield Camera Club, just let me know and I can put you in touch with someone from the Club. Who knows, maybe I will have a change of heart over the winter and re-think my decision again.
I THINK SOMEBODY IS PRETTY POOPED FROM RUNNING SO FAST
THE LAST PARAGRAPH: It is at this point of the day and at this point in my posts that I sometimes sit here at the keyboard trying to decide whether to include some final thoughts and opinions on things or not. Oh, I always have thoughts and opinions alright but it’s just knowing whether to share them. At one point in my earlier blogging days I never really thought about that a whole lot and just went ahead and dumped most of whatever was on my mind into my post anyway. Guess I still have a habit doing that sometimes, but……………….
GROANER’S CORNER: According to the Knight-Ridder News Service, the inscription on the metal bands used by the U.S. Department of the Interior to tag migratory birds has been changed. The bands used to bear the address of the Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated, "Wash. Biol. Surv." until the agency received the following letter from an Arkansas camper:
"Dear Sirs: While camping last week I shot one of your birds. I think it was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and I want to tell you it was horrible."
