WHEAT FIELD ON A SLIGHTLY MISTY MORNING
Well I gotta be losing it alright. Because of all the crud on the Jeep I decided to wash it first thing this morning despite the sky looking every bit like rain. I sudsed up & rinsed off the Jeeps front end & passenger side, then promptly forgot to wash the whole driver’s side including the wheels & rear end. Noticed my absent mindedness about an hour later in Goderich after driving there under cloudy skies, a slight mist, & a fine rain. So now I might as well wash the whole darn thing all over again. If I keep this silliness up I’m a gonna have all Libby’s paint washed right off soon enough.
SEEMED LIKE I WAS THE ONLY ONE MOTORING THROUGH THE MORNINGS LITE MIST TODAY
FOGGY MORNING AT THE GODERICH HARBOR GRAIN ELEVATORS
EVEN THE ‘CEDARGLEN’ IS WEARING THE MORNING’S MIST WELL
AND A PEEK THIS MORNING ALL THE WAY THROUGH HER BOW THRUSTER FROM ONE SIDE OF THE SHIP TO THE OTHER
A few things to pick up in Goderich then it was off down to Rotary Cove Beach for a walk in the doggy area. Not a lot of photographical things in terms of big blue sunny skies, fluffy white clouds, & clear horizons stretching forever this morning. I was a bit premature in rejoicing about Tuesday night’s clearing skies. Clouds thickened up & prevailed through the night well into early afternoon today. A general photo rule of thumb on cloudy days is look for photos on the ground & beneath the horizon line. If one remembers to do that one will find many great photo opportunities. Flowers or any already bright colors can really ‘pop’ on overcast days.
CUTE LITTLE THING IN THE WALMART PARKING LOT
Took us for a short drive around Goderich then headed ourselves back home. Goderich is a nice town/city & if Kelly & I had to pick a community to live in at some point we would chose Goderich Ontario. Everything there we need, no traffic chaos, a unique town core, easy access to the countryside, a fabulous beach, & it even comes complete with it’s own picturesque harbor on Lake Huron. Large ocean going lake freighters frequent the harbor 3 seasons of the year providing folks with up close encounters of boats & ships many people do not usually see. Truly a nice place to live & maybe in the Fall I’ll throw together a few photo albums of the town itself…………..:))
I’M ACTUALLY KINDA GLAD PHEEBS DOESN’T LIKE THE WATER…KEEPS ME & THE CAR’S INTERIOR CLEANER & DRYER:))
I think my last haircut was back last winter sometime. Kelly really laid a number on me that time & cut my hair pretty short. Not wanting to undergo the scissors again I’ve just kinda been stuffing my head under my hat every time I go out the door. In fact that just may have been my last haircut of ever because at the rate I seem to be losing my hair lately I may not have to worry about haircuts of any kind anymore. There has been some subtle clues as of late. It seems more & more of my hair is ending up on the shower stall floor as well as in my hair brush. Once a tough feat to drag a brush through my thick mop my brush fairly sails through it now. Oh still lots of hair up there of course but it is a bit alarming to not only see but feel the thinning change going on. Darn this blasted aging thing anyway. If this keeps up I’m going to end up looking like Mr. McGoo. Well why not, I already have most of his other characteristics……………..
With sunshine pouring through our pine trees & clear skies overhead I think Pheebs & will slip out tonight & see if we can have us a look at planets Venus & Jupiter. With daylight hours being so long this time of year & my human daylight hours being so short I find it hard for both long & short extremes to meet amicably anymore……………….
I THINK LITTLE MISS SNOOZY FACE IS READY TO HEAD FOR HOME
GROANER’S CORNER:(( After school one day, a young first-grade boy was sitting at the kitchen table, eating his afternoon snack, when he blurted out, "Mom, the teacher was asking me today if I have any brothers or sisters who will be coming to school." The boy's mother replied, "That's nice of her to take such an interest, dear. What did she say when you told her you are the only child?" She just said, "Thank goodness!"
