JUST A RELAXING GREEN GRASS, PHLOX, & PHEEBE KIND OF DAY
How nice it was this morning to open my comment section & not find a single Anonymous spam sitting in there. And, better yet, the section has remained spam free for the whole day:)) Here is the change Kelly made in my Blogger Dashboard. Click on 'Settings' 'Posts & comments'-'Who can comment'? Switched from the 'Anyone' box to the next one down, 'Registered User'. If you do this, just remember to save your settings by clicking the orange 'save settings' box at upper right. For our legitimate Anonymous folks: Commenter Sherry says, " If you disallow anonymous just remind your followers that they can post under name/url and just leave the url part blank and their name will show up. Anyway, I will try this for now & see how it goes. If I still get spammed I will go back to 'comment moderation'. Comment moderation is the way I always had it up until Google came up with that moronic double 'word verification' crap. For the most part, I like Google & think they have a lot smarts going for them but they sure dropped the ball in that word verification department!!
COULD IT BE THAT ONE OF THESE LADIES HAD A LITTLE MORE ‘GAS’ THAN THE OTHERS
Been about 4 years since we last carried our bicycles on the back of the rig all the way out to the Southwest. We never did ride them enough to justify hauling them back & forth so I took the bicycle carrier off the back of the rig a long time ago. This morning, I put it back on. We intend to take the bikes to Arizona in October & leave them there. The landscape is far nicer for riding than here. In Congress, we are one short block from miles upon miles of open desert with a hard packed Jeep road right at the gate. The desert surface is also hard packed making for challenging rides through the Cactus & Mesquite. This for me is far more relaxing, interesting & exciting than riding in an endless straight line on a dangerous paved road with traffic whizzing by.
When’s the last time you had a good Spring tulip fix. Might want to check out THE MOHO & OTHER TRAVELING TALES today. Go slow & tip toe lightly over the old weather beaten covered bridges along the way.
I remember seeing my first ‘shoe tree’ many years ago alongside the road in Utah’s Kodachrome Basin. They have a habit of springing up in unlikely spots. HAPPY TRAILS found a healthy one growing near Zion Canyon. Certainly is bearing a lot of clustered fruit this time of year.
Thursday I have an appointment to get a stone chip fixed in the Jeep’s windshield. Kid in an old pick-up truck came roaring down a gravel road last Saturday & threw a stone into my windshield.
GEEZER ROW IN THE WAITING ROOM TODAY
It was nearly an hour & a half sitting in the Goderich Hospital waiting room before I got in to see the Doctor late this afternoon. Yes, he said, the growth on the side of my head has to come off. No, not my ear!! He said it looked benign but it’s best to remove it. His reaction to the second growth on my chest was different so I now await a call from his office for a date to have both those growths removed & analyzed. We will see what happens after that…………..
NO, THAT IS NOT DOC ROBOT…IT’S DOC ANNAN WHO WILL DO MY ‘NEXT’ DAY SURGERY
Late tomorrow afternoon I am off to the Clinton Hospital (ho-hum) for a bone density test, whatever that is. I understand it is painless so that works for me………
SPOTTED THIS LITTLE FELLOW ON OUR WALK THIS MORNING JUST AS HE WAS ABOUT TO CRAWL INTO THAT HOLE IN THE TREE TRUNK IN FRONT OF HIM…ALL OF TODAY’S PHOTOS WERE TAKEN WITH MY CANON POWERSHOT POINT & SHOOT SX210iS & I WAS SURPRISED AT THE CLARITY OF THE RACCOON DESPITE THE LENS BEING FULLY ZOOMED & THE PHOTO CROPPED…SAME WITH THE COWS PHOTO
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A clergyman is walking down a country lane and sees a young farmer struggling to load hay back onto a cart after it had fallen off.
"You look hot, my son," said the cleric. "why don't you rest a moment, and I'll give you a hand."
"No thanks," said the young man.
"My father wouldn't like it."
"Don't be silly," the minister said.
"Everyone is entitled to a break. Come and have a drink of water."
Again the young man protested that his father would be upset. Losing his patience, the clergyman said, "Your father must be a real slave driver. Tell me where I can find him and I'll give him a piece of my mind!"
"Well," replied the young farmer, "he's under the load of hay."
