SIGN SAID ‘WALK IN - WELCOME’ SO KELLY WALKED IN AND CAME HOME WITH A NEW LOOK:))

Another mighty fine morning here on Ontario's west coast.  Nice walk in the Hullett Marsh followed by another walk in the Bannockburn Conservation area about an hour later.  A few photos along the way and we were home before 11.  Managed to get a utility trailer load of yard waste to our recycle area before retreating into the house for a short snooze in front of my big cooling fan.

One of the many nice things about our area is the abundance of rural roads taking a driver through the widespread scenic and diverse countryside.  Readers would be surprised at how many of my daily photos are taken right from the driver’s seat of the Jeep.

Kelly, in Goderich running some errands this morning came home with a new haircut which looks great on her.  It was a spur of the moment decision after seeing a sign at a downtown hairdressing shop saying ‘Walk In - Welcome’.

Well here we are at the end of another month and amazingly enough we are almost into July already.  While walking in the Marsh this morning it felt like late August with cooler temperatures and a heavy due on the grass.  Mid to late August always marks the early beginnings of my favorite time of year and this morning I reveled in that thought as I shuffled along through a patch of tall wet grass.

I THINK DOGGY IS NEEDING A DRINK OF WATER

Funny how after deciding to spruce up our place and not bother looking at other properties and houses for sale we still seem to get ourselves all excited whenever Kelly spots something on the Real Estate sites or I happen to see a ‘For Sale’ sign on a country property somewhere.  We both know that if a sure-fire opportunity presented itself on a quiet little country setting close to town right here in our own area we would still probably go for it………………….

UPON RETURNING TO THE JEEP WE FOUND WE HAD ANOTHER HITCH-HIKER TODAY

GROANER’S CORNER:(( Black Fellah to White Fellah.  Dear white fellah,  There's a coupla tings you orta no.  Firstly…………….
Wen I am born, I'm black.
Wen I grow up, I'm black.

  9. A great haircut can make a huge difference in how a girl feels about life..Her big smile says it all..As for a new house, I would love to unload this big one we have lived in for the past 41 years...This acre yard is a pain too..not to mention the gazillion trains passing at our back lot line...
