A steady rain moved in overnight & we ended up having ourselves a cold gray damp & very wet day. Only way to stay active & dry was to keep a roof over one's head. Pheebs & I did just that this morning as we Jeeped ourselves through the rain to Goderich. I enjoy any excuse to break up the day & do something different. Excuse today being we had to pick up some birdseed at TSC. And, I saw in their flyer they had short sleeve denim shirts on sale for $6.49. Yep, if I'm a gonna buy myself some new high fashion clothes, it's TSC all the way for this guy. Pheebs did a great job at mooning McDonald's when we went flying by too.
STORMY SKY’S ON THE WAY TO GODERICH
And yes, the first & last photo of Pheebs in Thursday's post are one & the same. The last one shows how a little 'cropping' & 'soft focus' in Picasa's photo editing program can give a photo a different effect.
This bear of a sore throat still has not let go of me. Did they back a gravel truck down my throat to get a load of kidney stones out our what. Geeeezzzzzz.
There is always something kinda cozy about a rainy day. Gives a feller a legitimate excuse for staying inside the house stretched out in the recliner with remote in hand. But, not today. Hauled my iPod & Bose out to the carport & cranked up some tunes. Turned on a few lights & felt like a contented Caveman happily working away in his darkened little domicile tidying up his slightly dusty & slightly cluttered surroundings. Sometimes, depending on mood, I kinda like that dusty cluttered feeling. Neat-O:))

Kelly had to go into my Facebook settings this morning & untangle me from another devious Facebook deception. I'm not big on YouTube videos to begin with but saw a couple by friends that looked interesting. One video about a dog was OK but the other one had some rough language in it. Next thing I know I see both those videos on Facebook today with my name beside them saying I had watched or liked the videos. That just ticks me off to end end that Facebook takes liberties like that. Took Kelly a bit of scrambling to find out where to make the appropriate changes in my settings & get me off a list I had not put myself on!! No matter, I'm sure Facebook will intervene at some point & coyly change my settings again. It has happened before!! I know, I know, why don't I just dump Facebook. I suppose because it is the only communication tool I have to keep up with a few friends who also have Facebook. But I'm tellin ya Alice, one of these days........bang-zoom!!!!
It is nice to see Chipmunks & small Red Squirrels returning to our yard again & we have the Pheebs to thank for that. It was last summer when several neighbour's marauding cat's frequented our front yard killing all the Chipmunks, small Squirrels & who knows how many Birds as well as pond frogs. Since Pheebs came to live with us last August cat's have wisely stayed away. Pheebs won't put up with any kitty cat nonsense in the yard & patrols it regularly to the delight of her little feathered & furry front yard friends.
I like days when things are happening. You know the kind of day when you get to the end of it & you have something satisfying to think about. Something to write about. When a day is eventful, writing comes easy. Come to think of it, so does thinking. I don't know where I'm going with this but it's the end of the day & I don't seem to have a lot to think about, therefore, not a lot left to write about. Perhaps tomorrow will be an eventful day & writing will come easy again.....
And, some late breaking news from Karen over at SMALL HOUSE - BIG BACK YARD. As many fellow Bloggers know, Karen & Steve have had their house for sale in preparation for RV full timing. One word sums it up………….. ‘SOLD’:))
