WE HAD A BIRTHDAY AT OUR HOUSE TODAY
JUST A FEW PHOTOS TONIGHT FROM AN AFTERNOON WALK AROUND OUR PINE TREE TRAIL
At last count Kelly had 70 ‘Happy Birthday ‘ wishes on her Facebook page today. She is one popular & well liked Gal alright. And I even get to be her full time husband too:))))))))
Despite temps around the freezing mark this morning’s sunshine hauled me right out of the house & stuck me right on the end of my leaf rake first thing. Raked me up a dozen backyard piles of pine needles & hauled a couple more heaping utility trailer loads of needles to our recycling area. Our place is finally starting to look a little neater.
MY CONTRIBUTION OF PINE NEEDLES TO THE DUMP WAS PART OF THAT PILE ON THE LEFT
IF YOU SEE A BLACK DOT ON THE TRAIL UP AHEAD THAT IS THE PHEEBS:)) ---- KEEP IN MIND I’M USING A WIDE ANGLE LENS & SHE IS NOT AS FAR AHEAD AS SHE APPEARS
A mid afternoon walk around our pine tree trail through the woods netted Pheebs & I a bit of exercise & a few photos. A cloud cover has moved in & weather folks have forecast rain for tonight & tomorrow. Heavy in some areas they say.
IT GETS REAL PRETTY HERE WHEN ALL THE GREEN LEAVES FILL IN ON THE TREES
Other than all the above exciting stuff there really wasn’t much happening today leaving me with very little to write about so it’s basically a photo blog tonight.
THIS IS THE PATH WE TAKE FROM OUR HOUSE TO THE PINE FOREST TRAIL & WE’VE BEEN WALKING THIS PATH FOR OVER 13 YEARS NOW (PHEEBS IS IN THIS PICTURE)
A few days ago I had some photos of Inukshuks along the beach in Goderich. Below is a photo of all those Inukshuks being taken down & the stones & pieces of concrete taken away. It seems an elderly lady posing for a photo last summer was somehow injured when she fell while walking among the stone structures. The city of Goderich was subsequently sued for $68,000 & today those Inukshuks were all taken down & hauled away.
THE 2 PHOTOS ABOVE ARE MINE BUT THE ONE BELOW IS NOT
INUKSHUKS BEING GATHERED UP & HAULED AWAY TODAY
Well here we are almost at the end of March already & just think, six & a half months from now we’ll be on the road heading for the South-west again. Now how’s that for a nice thing to look forward to eh:))
OUR BAYFIELD STICKS & BRICKS IN EARLY SPRING & THE VERY CENTER OF THAT SUNROOM SECTION ON THE LEFT IS WHERE I WRITE MY POSTS EVERY NIGHT
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A prisoner in jail receives a letter from his wife: "Dear Husband, I have decided to plant some lettuce in the back garden & want to know when is the best time to plant it?" The prisoner, knowing that the prison guards read all mail, replied in a letter: "Dear Wife, whatever you do, do not touch the back garden. That is where I hid all the money." A few days later he received another letter from his wife: "Dear Husband, You wouldn't believe what happened, some men came with shovels to the house and dug up all the back garden". The prisoner wrote another letter back: "Dear wife, now is the best time to plant the lettuce."
