INTENTLY WATCHING A GRASSHOPPER
Looks like I shouldn't be pressing Google buttons & clicking on stuff I don't understand. I've been banging around in that Google+ stuff again this time trying to get a handle on the photo side of the program. I messed up my blog's comment section somehow & I saw some photos added to Google+ that I did not add. Now that really bugs me!! This was probably my 4th or 5th attempt to get a handle on Google+ stuff & again I came away in a confused state of angst. I was also trying to figure out how to drop my daily posts in Google+ but didn't get that one figured out either. I did manage to re-trace my steps & un-check a button in Blogger's dashboard so comments may appear at the end of my posts again & are not lost in the great Google+ maze somewhere. I may have gained a slight understanding into the photo side of things, but only slight & I still have no idea what all this Google+ stuff is supposed to be. And I don't like the fact the great Google Monster has & still is reaching it's long controlling tentacles into more & more of people's on-line lives. Guess it’s the same complaint I hear a lot of people have with Facebook too. I get the feeling Google is saying to me, 'it's our way or the highway Buster'!! At least that is the way it seems to me.................... Thanks for the email Tom:))
EASY TO SEE HOW CLEAR OUR LAKE HURON WATER IS
AT THE SOUTH END OF GODERICH’S LONG BEACH SHORELINE THIS MORNING
STILL WORKING ON BUILDING THE CONCRETE FOUNDATION UNDER THE OLD CPR STATION/NEW RESTAURANT
By Golly, I had myself another great spurt of energy today. Right after our morning walk I fired up my wheelbarrow & went around loading up about two thirds of our summer lawn ornaments & putting them away in one of our sheds. Following that Pheebs & I hit the road for Goderich & took care of a few errands. Quick stop at the medical center & then took Pheebs down to the beach for a walk. Back home, hauled out the hose, a bucket of foamy Turtle wax water & washed the Jeep. Vacuumed the interior & sucked up enough muffin crumbs to bake a cake. While I had the hose & bucket out I washed the Motorcycle as well & took it for a spin to blow it dry. Aw what the heck, might as well wash Kelly's car too. Hey, I had the bucket & hose out anyway right. So where's all this energy coming from? Cooler temperatures maybe, no humidity, the fact Autumn is upon us, maybe knowing we will be rolling out in less than a month. Or maybe something else............ If my energy levels stay consistently high over the next few weeks I may tell you what I think might just be responsible for those levels coming up. These last 2 days reminded me a whole lot of myself right up until just a few years ago. Days when I had half a dozen little projects on the go all at once & just merrily bounced my way along from one to the other. Sure would be a happy guy if I could get my old self back again. We’ll see what happens………………………:))
YEP, WE GOT EVERYTHING JUST A SPARKLIN AROUND HERE NOW:))
Mark over at BOX CANYON BLOG finished up his solar panel installation a few days ago & has photos of his set up. I am always in envy of people who can do a lot of their own mechanical things like that. I almost successfully changed a light bulb once.
A BIG PHEEBER SMOOCH FOR MOM
We think the tree cutter is coming with the big boom arm machine in the morning to take down a couple tall pines close to the house in our back yard. I have a feeling this is going to be a nail biter because one of the pine trees is leaning towards the house. I’ll be here to help wherever I can but our Jeep will be at the BAYFIELD GARAGE for the morning. Oil change, tire rotation, undercoating, brakes check, etc. etc.
PHEEBS & I SCARED UP THIS GREAT BLUE HERON OFF THE GOOSE POND ON OUR WALK TONIGHT
GREAT BLUE BANKS TO THE RIGHT & HEADS INTO THE TREES
HE WAS SOON JUST A SILHOUETTE IN THE EARLY EVENING DUSK
MARY-PAT is our latest Blog Follower & we thank her for taking the time & making the effort to wade through the necessary Google requirements to get herself aboard. A big Bayfield Bunch welcome to Mary-Pat:))
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Friend: "I suppose you carry a memento of some sort in that locket of yours?"
Woman: "Yes, it's a lock of my husband's hair."
Friend: "But your husband is still alive."
Woman: "I know, but his hair is gone."
