Warm rains came in the night & stayed with us most of the day. Pheebs & I made our way through Sunday's sky born water drops to Walmart in Goderich & picked up a few things. No point in going anywhere else because of the inclement weather so we were home again within an hour. And that was basically our day. Heavy rains predicted overnight & continuing all day Monday:((
Kelly's Daughter Sarah, husband Bradley & 2 nearly 4 year old twin children, Adara & Gabrielle rolled in about 3:45 p.m. this afternoon for a whirlwind stop before heading off to their cottage a couple minutes away at Deer Park Lodge. Bradley’s Brother & family were already there waiting for them. We will see more of the Vancouver gang in the next couple days. This is a combined holiday/business trip as Bradley has meetings in Toronto at the offices of Google & Facebook this week.
I BET THOSE 2 LITTLE GAFFERS HAVE QUITE A TIME KEEPING AN EYE ON MOM & DAD SOMETIMES

Autumn with all it's colors is always a photographer's delight. It's the stuff calendars are made of. Winter snows on crisp sunny days are also a beautiful time for photography. So what if one blended Autumn's colors with Winter's snows? Well, it doesn't happen very often here in our Southern Ontario neck of the woods this time of year but if you want to see the wonders of Autumn leaves & snow together then just hop over to Mark's latest post at BOX CANYON BLOG. How fortunate to live, work, & play in such a scenic area of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.
And speaking of beautiful areas in a different area of a different State be sure to drop in at MERIKAY'S DREAMS & check out Arizona's Antelope Canyon where Merikay & Craig just took a tour through swirling rock faces of unimaginable beauty. Mother Nature's mysteries abound here as the hands of time, wind, & rain have carved out rock patterns to boggle the mind. And how about a big Hummingbird Balloon drinking out of another big balloon. Well, quick thinking Jim caught it with his camera over at JIMBO'S JOURNEYS.

LARRY LARGE joins us today on our Blog Followers list. Welcome aboard Larry & we thank you for dropping in. We should have the Winnie Wagon rolling ‘West-ward Ho’ in less than 2 weeks. And thanks for that nice email late this afternoon. I’m going to take a liberty here Larry & publish one of the paragraphs you wrote. (no folks it’s not about me) It’s about someone we know & respect & someone I have mentioned in my post’s before. I was happy to see how RV’er Larry & his wife Barb, on a road trip through our area were superbly treated by our good friend Ron Krauter from FOUR SEASONS PERFORMANCE Grand Bend, Ontario. They had problems with a sticking hydraulic coach leveller. Here is that paragraph………….. “We had a problem with one of our levellers not retracting, but I managed to get it up using a board as a lever. I remembered reading about Ron Krauter from Four Seasons Performance in several of your blogs but didn’t remember where it was. Well, as we were travelling along Hwy 21 I saw some motorhomes and a sign that told me I had found Ron. Couldn’t stop in time so we found us a spot to turn around to head back. Of course, Ron was in the shop by his house and not at the lot we pulled into. We found Ron and introduced ourselves as followers of your blog. When I explained my problem, he knew immediately what the problem most likely was. He grabbed some lubricant and headed for our house on wheels. He lubed and tested all the levellers, showed me the location of the reservoir and pump for the levellers, checked that the fluid level was OK, and gave me several useful bits of information. When he was finished, he refused to take any payment. You are very lucky to live close enough to Ron to get your motorhome serviced. He is a fellow that can be trusted”…………….. Thanks Larry, we feel the same way:))
PHEEBS SPOTTED THIS VERY WELL CAMOUFLAGED LITTLE FROGGY FELLOW SATURDAY
And a quick note to the commenter folks at TURN WHEN THE ROAD DOES who are now in Truth or Consequences New Mexico. Kelly’s sister Bekky & husband Norm work camped at the River Bend Hot Springs in T or C back in 2008. Kelly & I dropped in to see them there on our way back to Ontario. Here’s the link for the first of our 6 day visit………RIVER BEND HOT SPRINGS....THE BAYFIELD BUNCH ROLLS INTO TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES New Mexico.
