OUR LILACS ARE IN FULL BLOOM & OH NOW NICE THEY SMELL
With screwdriver in hand I took the license plates off our Jeep Wrangler this morning. With weed whacker in hand I walked around the property & stirred up some dust. Burnt some garbage then took Pheebs for a toot up to Goderich in the Libbygator. Down along Lake Huron’s shoreline where today's hot humid temperatures met cold winter lake waters cooling wisps of fog rolled in blowing a light almost transparent mist inland across the rocky shores & sandy beaches.

I know some will think it silly to have feelings for a vehicle but I have always been a person who generally becomes attached to most everything & that includes vehicles I have owned & liked. I don’t know if being an only child has something to do with that or not but once I have something in my possession for any length of time I seem to bond with it. Could be a favorite pair of old tattered socks, maybe a worn wallet I’ve carried in my back pocket for 20 years, a stone I picked up the beach while walking in deep thought one day, every photo taken is memory for me, any stuffed animal I pick up I instantly bond with & want to bring it home. And that includes live ones too. Old shoes become friends as do any books I read. Ever tried to throw away your favorite pair of blue jeans. I still have an old College jacket hanging in the shed circa 1969. On our morning walk I pass a tree I bonded with years ago & sometimes Pheebs & I on an afternoon walk head for that tree to say hello. I have feelings for the mountains & deserts of the great Southwest & am bonded with many places there. I say hello to my favorite country roads & I say goodbye to my favorite vehicles………and today was a good-bye day.
I’M GUESSING IT WAS A VERY FOGGY MORNING FOR THE FISHING BOATS EARLY THIS MORNING
THIS MORNING’S FOGBANK SITS ATOP THE SIFTO SALT MINE ELEVATORS
Jeeper's new owners (John & Marilyn) arrived about 3:45 this afternoon & affixed a dealer plate. Papers were signed, money was exchanged & Jeepers was gone about 25 minutes later. I was glad to see our Jeep go to an older responsible fella & not some young kid who would beat it into the ground. Nice folks those Sarnia people. All the best Jeepers & thanks for all the great memories……………….. Tonight I am sad but tomorrow is a new day & who knows, maybe I’ll bond with a stick.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A man had a ticket for the theater but when he was seated by the usher, he found that he was too far from the stage. He whispered to the usher, "This is a mystery play, and I have to watch a mystery close up. Get me a better seat, and I'll give you a handsome tip." The usher moves him into the second row, and the man hands the usher a quarter. The usher looks at the quarter, frowns at him, then leans over and whispers, ............ "The wife did it."
Here are a few good examples for Blog writers why one should be brief & not use big words!!
In promulgating your esoteric cogitation or articulating your superficial sentimentalities, and amicable philosophical or psychological observations, beware of platitudinous ponderosity.
Let your conversational communications possess a compacted conciseness, a clarified comprehensibility, a coalescent cogency, and a concatenated consistency.
Eschew obfuscation and all conglomeration of flatulent garrulity, jejune babblement, and asinine affectations.
Let your extemporaneous descanting and unpremeditated expatiation have intelligibility and voracious vivacity without rodomontade or thrasonical bombast.
Sedulously avoid all polysyllabic profundity, pompous prolificacy, and vain vapid verbosity.
In short: "Be brief and don't use big words."
