Had us nice quiet and peaceful morning walk going on this morning until all the rapid firing shot guns opened up. That immediately traumatized the little Motormouse and Kelly had to turn around and take her home. Pheebs (who is luckily not bothered by gunshots or thunderstorms) and I continued on and it wasn't long before I counted 15 shotgun blasts in rapid succession followed by two more a minute later. Sound carries far on the still morning air so I knew the hunters were further away than what it first sounded like. It's the first week of deer hunting season here:(( I am so glad I was not born with that 'hunting' gene and that is all I had better say about that.

Telephone scams are definitely on the rise as scum ball scammers come up with increasing ways to rip unwary people off. Especially Seniors. Check out RETIRED ROD'S post about a scammer that has been harassing him. My 95 year old Uncle Harry was recently plagued by a caller threatening him if he did not give the caller particular personal information. We received a scam call ourselves a few days ago from a foreign caller saying our computer was sending out error messages and the situation was critical. That's as far as the low life got before Kelly shut him down and hung up. Be aware people, be very aware!! Greed is rampant and desperate people using desperate measures are on the rise.
<<< SPOTTED THIS SLEEPY LITTLE RACOON HEAD HIGH IN A TREE THIS MORNING
Hadn't taken the furry kids out for lunch in awhile because I have been avoiding McDonalds, Subway and Tim Horton's etc in an effort to keep myself away from dough and wheat products. Greasy stuff too. The guys were really bugging me today for a ride in the Jeep so I thought, 'aw the heck with it, it's Saturday........let's just go get ourselves a big Sub. Minutes later we were sitting in the parking lot of Bayfield's Subway Shoppe totally demolishing a 12" Tuna Sub complete with lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, onions and honey mustard sauce. With 3 hungry hounds in the small confines of a tiny Jeep Wrangler we sure had quite a mess going on for ourselves. By the time we were done it looked like we had had a massive vegetable explosion all over the place. Motor and Pheebs grab for the Tuna and I get stuck with all the boring vegetables the guys won't eat. Hope I can get the onion smell out of there before we leave next week.
HERE’S THE GUYS PATIENTLY WAITING FOR ME AND YOU CAN SEE THEM INTENTLY STARING AT THE TUNA SUB I HAD JUST LAID ON THE DASH AS I GOT INTO THE JEEP
I think we humans are all creatures of routine in one form or another. Daily routines are the norm and it is how we generally make our way through each and every day. I don't know about other folks but here is how I break down a typical routine day in my life. I think of it in phases. The time frames I use here are general and vary each day but the phases are pretty much the same from day to day.
-Phase 1 begins with my getting up usually around 4 or 5 a.m. and lasts to about 8 a.m. In this phase I am in my recliner with my laptop computer reading blogs, commenting, jotting down a few ideas for my own blog, checking CNN news, etc.
-Phase 2 is my 'shower time.'
-Phase 3 is our morning walk.
-Phase 4 takes up the rest of the morning until about noon. It is phase 4 where I generally prefer to get everything done and taken care of that has to be attended to for the whole day. I am a morning person and it is the time of day I am both mentally and physically at my best.
-Phase 5 takes up the afternoon until around 4 or 5 p.m. Phase 5 is where I kind of coast and catch up my previous night's poor sleep with little snoozes and also things I didn't get finished in the morning.
-Phase 6 begins in late afternoon when I sit down in my recliner with my laptop and start on the night's blog and catch up on CNN news for the day. We generally eat sometime around 5:30. After supper I am generally back in my recliner with the laptop until 7.
-Phase 7 sees me headed into the sun room and this is the time I sit down at the desktop and pull the blog together. I finish up the writing, edit the photos and assemble everything together in the post. By 9 or so I usually have things ready to rumble. I hit Live Writer’s Publish button and another Bayfield Bunch post rocket’s off into cyber space.
-Phase 8 finds me back in my recliner again checking on the latest news of the day and flipping through the channels looking for something resembling any kind of reasonable intelligence. Sometimes I drift off to sleep with the television going well into the night and sometimes I'm still awake at midnight watching a documentary or something.
-Phase 9 is my poor night's sleep as I alternate between my recliner and my bed. Around 4 or 5 a.m. I begin my routine all over again. This routine basically follows the same pattern when we are traveling as well. Some habits are just hard to break:))

GROANER'S CORNER:(( The woman applying for a job in a Florida lemon grove seemed way too qualified for the job.
"Look Miss," said the foreman, "have you any actual experience in picking lemons?"
"Well... as a matter if fact, Yes !" she replied. "I've been divorced seven times."
