We were glad our great Spring weather held together long enough for Jean's final few days with us. We were over to Deer Park Lodge before 9 this morning to help load her luggage into the car. When giving her a big hug I whispered in her ear that next time she came up we would have a nice Winnebago Motorhome for her to stay in right on our property. Yes, the deal went through on the WINNY. We will pick it up early next week:))
WELL, TIME TO GO:((
Very sad saying goodbye to Aunt Jean this morning because the reality of age & health always cloud the future at this stage of life. Not likely she will come to Arizona this winter. Although she enjoyed her adventuress time there with us 3 months ago the cold proved to be just too much. We are hoping she might make it back to Bayfield in September this year or maybe June of next year. June & September are two of the nicest months here & Jean really liked this whole area on the sandy shores of Lake Huron. It had been nice having her here & it was the first time ever she was able to spend time with us other than the past couple winters in Arizona. She said this morning she is already looking forward to coming back, renting a car again, & buzzing around the countryside. Pretty darn good for 86 years old I'd say:)) We are all missing you tonight Jean………………..
A FAREWELL WAVE TO THE PHEEBS & AUNT JEAN HEADS OUT THE DRIVEWAY AT DEER PARK LODGE
We finished cleaning out the Sunseeker & I took the hitch assembly off the back. Quick clean-up on the Jeep & then turned my attention to the Motorcycle. Don't know how it gets so dirty just sitting over the winter but it does. Always a bit of a tedious clean-up with all the tiny crooks, crannies, & corners to get into but I did get er all sparkly again & ready to roll for another season.
ALL SPARKLED UP & READY FOR ANOTHER SUMMER
Felt downright hot later this afternoon as Pheebs & slipped out for a walk around the Park's pond. So nice to see so many signs of Spring just popping out all over. Spring flowers are blooming & trees are bursting forth in leaves. I've never seen so many fish in the pond before. Especially goldfish.

JEAN’S FAVORITE ROCKER/GLIDER CHAIR IN OUR SUNROOM IS LOOKING MIGHTY EMPTY TONIGHT WITHOUT HER IN IT
GROANER'S CORNER:(( All of Broomtown was a buzz because boy-broom and girl-broom were going to get married. Everyone felt certain that the bride-broom and the groom-broom would make a lovely couple. The night before the wedding, however, bride-broom told groom-broom that she was going to have a little wisk-broom. "But, how can that be?" wailed groom-broom, "We haven't even swept together yet!"
