NICE TO SEE OUR ORIOLES BACK AGAIN
It’s true, with sunny blue skies overhead it was truly a no brainer as Pheebs & I didn’t waste any time in getting ourselves into the Jeep & out into the countryside. I was definitely needing a break from from the daily house routine & Motorhome thinking. And I’m sure Kelly was needing a break from me too. I try to be considerate of those things. Besides, after washing the Jeep a few days ago I’ve been constantly blinded by it’s shininess. It was time to slip ourselves on down some dusty country roads & get that shine problem taken care of.
MARSH MARIGOLDS & DANDELIONS ARE ALWAYS A SURE SIGN OF SPRING
Not one of our longer back road drives again but we did manage to wander ourselves around for a couple hours. Couldn’t seem to get myself in full photo mode but did manage to get a smattering of pictures. Hardwood trees & forests are still barren of leaves so Spring’s just not prettying itself up out there too fast. A chilly wind kept our roadside stops short & to a minimum.
THESE ARE UNDERWATER LILY PADS GROWING TO THE POND’S SURFACE WHERE THEY WILL SOON BE GREEN WITH FROGS SITTING ON THEM (not our pond)
I laid low all afternoon, just not feeling up to snuff these past few days but I’m sure whatever it is will pass. Generally does. Sunday being Mothers Day Kelly is off to Cambridge to spend some time with 4 of her 5 children. Fifth one is in Vancouver B.C. Pheebs & I will hang out at home & if the temps come up enough I might just slide out for a ride on my bike. Maybe that will help cure whatever it is that has been ailing me. My intestines have kinda been squooshing around like an old Maytag washer……………….
MAPLE TREE BUDS BEGINNING TO LEAF OUT
NORMALLY BY THIS TIME OF YEAR THAT BUSH LINE WOULD BE A NICE SHADE OF MID SPRING GREEN
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A businessman dragged himself home and barely made it to his chair before he dropped, exhausted. His sympathetic wife was right there with a tall cool drink and a comforting word. "My, you look tired," she said. "You must have had a hard day today. What happened to make you so exhausted?" "It was terrible," her husband said, "The company computers broke down and all of us had to do our own thinking."
