SIX SOLID DAYS OF RAIN FOR A FELLOW BLOGGER MAKES AN ALREADY DEPRESSING SITUATION………WORSE:((
PORT ALBERT FISHERMEN ON THE SHORES OF LAKE HURON
It has been three weeks since JUDY'S Motor Home brake problem began. She not only had to get her rig towed but has spent these past weeks with her little dog Emma stuck in repair facility parking lots. Her problem has finally been tracked down to her coaches computer Mother Board but now her insurance company is balking and dragging it's feet about a repair. I think there may be an extended warranty problem here as well. It has been raining for 6 straight days and Judy is just about at the end of her rope. She is sure in need of some sunshine in her life right about now.
Nice to touch base with my old friend Jim Thursday night. We always get caught up on each other's lives and marvel how, in many areas, our lives continue to parallel each other, even after all these years. Our coffee session lasted 4 hours and we carried on like a couple of manic Magpies in a quiet corner of Tim Horton's coffee shop in Clinton, Ontario. After sitting on the those hard plastic seats for that length of time we both wobbled upon getting to our feet. Quite a site seeing two aging hippy guys trying to shake hours of stiffness out of their legs. Oh, how time is marching on:((
Reading JANNA'S post this morning I came across a link entitled TOLERANCE IN BLOGLAND. This is a topic that has been on my mind for a long time but I have avoided blogging about it. I have tried to lighten up my blog a bit and make it a little less controversial for the most part. I was glad to read this lady's Tolerance post this morning. I think she spoke for a lot of us who feel the same way. I have little or no tolerance or regard for anyone who leaves rude, sarcastic, demeaning or condescending comments on anyone's blog. Those kinds of comments are generally Ego driven.
TRIP TO WARMTH……… Here is a couple in the early stages of RVing and Blogging. This handyman, amateur radio guy and obvious clever innovator is busy working on and improving a travel trailer. Sounds like one of those guys who can fix or make anything out of 'parts laying around.' Oh how I envy all you fellers who can do things like that.
JEAN AND SKIP are in Zion Canyon Utah but the heat is proving to be a formidable problem. And to make matters worse, they are stuck in a crowded campground. From Zion they will be heading to Bryce Canyon. Zion and Bryce, two of my favourite scenic places in one of my favourite scenic States. We may very well be in south-eastern Utah sometime in November.
This morning in doggy class it was nice to see the 3 furry class members (Katie, Boston and Pheebe) all off leash playing with each other as they raced and frolicked around the training room at, ON GOLDEN PAWS. We humans had to be fast on our feet to avoid the rolling thunder of paws, flailing tails and flying ears. Took a few pics with my Canon point and shoot but next time I will take my faster Nikon D90 for better photos.
We didn't get much above 48 F today with brisk winds making it feel colder than it actually was. A big blue sky with plenty of sunshine made up for that and made for a beautiful looking Autumn Day. The bush lines along farmer's fields are beginning to take on some splashes of color and will soon be ablaze in their fiery finery. Two trips on the trail for Pheebs and I today and it's just the best time of the year to be in the forest. Hard to imagine that in just a few short months this warm picturesque land will look and feel like frozen Siberia!!
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Did you know that skipping school to go bungee jumping will get you suspended.
