WE DON’T SEEM TO HAVE AS MANY MOURNING DOVES IN OUR YARD THIS YEAR
Finished Bill Bryson’s book, ‘The Life & Times of the THUNDERBOLT KID’ Monday & I’m coming down the home stretch on my Kindle book, Leaving the Life. The latter sure has been an emotionally tough read but I am feeling better for what I am learning from this book.

Nowhere in my Monday post did I mention anything about heading home to Bayfield Ontario now or anytime in the immediate future. I simply expressed some thoughts on things I look forward to when we do get home sometime around the first week of April. We have spent over 60 years plowing through miserable Canadian winters & are well aware of harsh weather conditions going on there at this time of year, & especially this year. We check in on Bayfield’s weather often. Yes I am always antsy about getting on the road going somewhere but returning to Canada before the first of April definitely is never a voluntary decision or destination for us. We did toss around some travel plans this morning for later next month but nothing definite yet.

GROANER’S CORNER:(( My wife, a registered nurse, once fussed over every pain or mishap that came my way. Recently, however, I got an indication that the honeymoon is over. I was about to fix the attic fan, and as I lifted myself from the ladder into the attic, I scratched my forehead on a crossbeam. Crawling along, I picked up splinters in both hands, and I cut one hand replacing the fan belt. On the way down the ladder, I missed the last two rungs and turned my ankle. When I limped into the kitchen, my wife took one look and said, "Are those your good pants?"
