Ooooops, guess Tuesday night's post title was a little on the long side & some may have had trouble opening it. If so here is a much shorter link to my post. Just click, ‘STANDOFFISH’. Sometimes my head don't think so smart.
MY 70-300mm LENS HAS BEEN CHATTERING & VIBRATING SO BAD LATELY TODAY I DECIDED TO STRAP ON MY 50-200mm LENS & TRY IT OUT ON THESE MONARCH BUTTERFLIES
When in Goderich at the Maitland Valley Medical Center Tuesday I had intended to look for a couple things at the Canadian Tire store but drove right on by it twice without my brain tapping me on my shoulder & reminding me to stop in. This morning Pheebs & I headed back to Goderich because we knew Harvey's still had their $3 burger on sale & Harvey's is in the same mall as Canadian Tire. Ahhhhh yes, a method in my madness alright:))
A drive down around the harbor & a walk for Pheebs & I at the end of the beach netted me some Monarch Butterfly photos. As rare as Monarch's have become in recent years I was happily surprised by at least half a dozen of them in one area flitting about from flower to flower.
Pheebs & I were home by 11 & I wasn't long in hauling the vacuum cleaner out to again suck up all the muffin crumbs everywhere. A few of Harvey's burger parts were found scattered about as well. Pheebs & I have quite a time with ourselves sharing our burgs, subs, & muffins.
Loaded a few things in one of the rig's bins & spent some time inside checking out my recliner area. Hauled my laptop out to see how things were going to work out when on the road. A few new ideas, a few changes, & moved a couple cabinet contents around. No matter what, this is definitely going to be the best floor plan set up we've ever had in an RV. Finally, finally, finally, after all these years we both have recliner chairs. As Ralph Kramden from the Honeymooners would say, "how sweet it is".
Four weeks from tonight we will be on the eve of our departure & I will be apprehensively anxious to get rolling. I always experience of bit of apprehension before heading out on a long journey after a lay-up of half a year & the only thing that allays that apprehension is to get that gearshift into Drive & get those big wheels rolling. Soon as we are on our way that apprehension immediately evaporates, the mission is on & my focus turns to the long journey ahead. Yahouie Louie:))))))
Again I'd like to express my appreciation to all our readers for sticking with us & tagging along through another long drawn out summer. Thanks to ‘Facebookers’ for their ‘Likes’ & the folks getting back to us in our Shout Box. Thanks to our faithful commenters on the blog & all the email folks for taking the time to send us those encouraging & heart warming emails. I know I sound like an old worn out record here again but if wasn’t for folks like you reading the blog there wouldn’t be much point in me writing the blog. And I thank you all for that:))
GROANER’S CORNER:(( I was scrubbing a bulkhead on the USS Kitty Hawk one Sunday morning when the loud-speaker announced: "Religious services. Maintain silence about the decks. Discontinue all unnecessary work." An hour later, the opinion many of us held regarding our daily routine, was confirmed with this announcement: "Resume all unnecessary work."
Two sea monsters were swimming around in the ocean, looking for something to do. They came up underneath a ship that was hauling potatoes. Bob, the first sea monster, swam underneath the ship, tipped it over and ate everything on the ship. A little while later, they came up to another ship, again hauling potatoes. Bob again capsizes the ship and eats everything onboard. The third ship they found was also hauling potatoes and Bob once again capsized it and ate everything. Finally his buddy Bill asked him, "Why do you keep tipping over those ships full of potatoes and eating everything on board?" Bob replied, "I wish I hadn't, but I just can't help myself once I start. Everyone knows you can't eat just one potato ship."
