GREAT WEATHER FOR A BIKE RIDE TO GRAND BEND’S BEACH THIS AFTERNOON
Thunder, lightning, & rain had me awake in the night so with not the best night’s sleep under my belt I struggled my tired mind through the day. Totally surprised at how mild it was this morning on our walk. We were pushing 70F under cloudy skies with a humidity factor today. Not to often that happens this time of year in these parts. And it sure reminded me of Spring when all the Peeper frogs started chirping this morning & tonight. We generally only ever hear them in the early Spring months. Crazy weather…………..
YEP, SEEMS TO BE A BLACK SHEEP IN EVERY FAMILY ALRIGHT
Our dreary overcast morning cloud cover gradually opened up in a few spots to give us a few wondrous sun splashes beginning about noon. It is rare for me to leave my motorcycle out in the rain but it did get a soaking during the night. Figured the best way to dry it out was to take the bike for a snort, As soon as I saw that sunlight pouring down through the pine trees I was off. Headed myself down to Grand Bend for a coffee at Tim Hortons. And I did check to make sure they were not renovating before I entered. Drove down to the beach & took the traditional walk out onto the pier. Been doing that for many years now. Lots of memories making that walk. Every time a young & not so young feller had a new girlfriend years ago he would take her to Grand Bend for a walk on the pier. Yes indeed.

Roxi over at THE GOOD LUCK DUCK sure snagged herself a sweet deal near Datil New Mexico. It’s an area Kelly & I have not been to yet but did have an interest in a couple years ago when we were keeping our eyes open for properties in the southwest. New Mexico is a great State & the cheapest one to live in. Only thing that deterred us was the areas weather during winter months. Higher elevation around Datil makes it cold & they get snow. Best case scenario we figured was to buy a place in that cooler climate for the summer & then not have to drive so far to spend winter months in the neighbouring warmer States of Arizona & California. Also liked the idea of being closer to Colorado as well. And not far down to the Big Bend area of Texas either. But with me not being an American citizen it just made those plans way too complicated for us. Kelly has dual citizenship.

We have a busy week coming up starting tomorrow. Well, Kelly especially. Kelly’s daughter Sarah along with her husband Bradley & two small children Adara & Gabriele are landing in Toronto tonight from Vancouver. They will be heading for Bayfield tomorrow to spend a few days at Deer Park Lodge before heading back over to Cambridge to visit with Kelly’s other children there. Kelly hasn’t seen Sarah for over 5 years. Some of you west coast folks may know Sarah’s husband Bradley Shende from his Vancouver based TV reports.

GROANER’S CORNER:(( Snow White received a camera as a gift. She happily took pictures of the Dwarfs and their surroundings. When she finished her first batch she took the film to be developed. After a week or so she went to get the finished photos. The clerk said the photos were not back from the processor. Needless to say, she was disappointed and started to cry. The clerk, trying to console her, said, "Don't worry. Someday your prints will come".
