Aside from Pheebs & I heading to Goderich for a few things this morning there hasn't been much of anything happening today again. A drive down around the town's north harbor & home through scenic Ben Miller pretty well sums up our short a.m. tour. With a heavy cloud cover prevailing I simply couldn't drum up any photo enthusiasm. A couple pictures along the water's edge & we were soon home again.
Our annual yellow pine pollen menace is upon us for another year coating everything with a fine talcum like powdery dust. Will probably last for 3 or 4 days with clouds of wispy pollen visibly moving slowly wisp like through our surrounding pine trees. Next week I will be cleaning vehicles all over again. Inside & out!!
A few more Facebook 'Friend Requests' have come in so just a reminder to readers again that I do not accept 'friend requests'. I have been hacked twice accepting requests so I put a stop to that. I do not accept 'Linked-In' requests either for similar reasons. Nothing personal, it's just a security issue. Aside from using Facebook to publish my post each night & recently posting a few sunset photos to a couple Goderich sites I am not a Facebooker.
PHEEBS AT THE BEACH THIS WEEK
I find myself some nights sitting here at my keyboard in a rather frustrating frame of mind. I am wanting to write something for the simple reason I enjoy writing but the frustration sets in when I can’t seem to think of anything to write about. So easy to write of a day’s events when a day actually has events. It’s these kind of low key nothing days which throws the proverbial Monkey wrench into my writing enjoyment. Some will say, ‘well don’t write every day & just try writing something a couple times a week’. Well that’s all well & good for folks with a steel trap mind which securely seals in all the details of days gone by. By the time I get to tomorrow I have already forgotten about today. Well Okay maybe not quite that severe but to go back a day or two or more & write about something just seems like old news to me & even I am not interested in trying to revive it or frustrate myself further by attempting to recall details that are already fast fading out of my mind’s reach. Well there ya go, I managed to eke out one more paragraph tonight from an otherwise ‘not much going on’ day…………………….:))
GROANER'S CORNER:(( The Monday Afternoon Club, an organization of city women, met and decided that this month's outing was to be at a dairy farm. Most of them had lived in the city all their lives, and had never seen such a place.
The day came for the trip, and the ladies filed into the rented bus which whisked them off to their destination. On the way, they watched out the windows as the city squalor turned into lovely, unpolluted countryside.
After they arrived, they were greeted by the farmer who invited them to look him up should they have any questions. Myrtle, after looking about, and being amazed by what she saw, stepped into a building and viewed something she thought was quite remarkable.
She saw the farmer walk by and hailed him -- he sauntered in.
"Sir," she inquired, "Why doesn't this cow have any horns?"
The farmer cocked his head for a moment, then began in a patient tone: "Well, ma'am, cattle can do a powerful lot of damage with horns. Sometimes we keep'em trimmed down with a hacksaw. Other times we can fix up the young'uns by puttin' a couple drops of acid where their horns would grow in, and that stops 'em cold. Still, there are some breeds of cattle that never grow horns. But the reason this cow don't have no horns, ma'am, is 'cause it's a horse."
