SPOTTED THIS LITTLE FELLOW ON OUR SUNROOM WINDOW TODAY
It was our bi-monthly country coffee break for my good friend/neighbor Richard and I this morning. His turn to drive and we checked out a lot of lake front views and properties between Goderich and south of Bayfield. As always it was a great non stop excitingly interesting conversation. I do so very much enjoy our mobile country road chats.

AND HERE’S A BLAST FROM THE PAST……ALL MY OLD ALBUMS
Not much going on today. Nice cool sunny morning but rains rolled in early afternoon for awhile before skies cleared making for a very much most beautiful finish to the day. Cameras never made it out of the house so I’m low on photos tonight. Pheebs and I are definitely needing a morning outing. Did manage to get some more shed cleaning done.
A LEFT OVER PHOTO FROM MONDAY NIGHT
Looking for the name of a road in our area a few days ago I was surprised to see Google Earth had ‘finally’ updated their satellite images of our area here in Huron County. For years the photos were blurred and I had often wondered when they would update our region with clearer coverage. Judging from the date it was done in August 2015 and I only noticed it now. I have included two aerial photos below to show where we live and our proximity to Bayfield and Lake Huron. Now that the imagery is improved I will begin showing you more of our area such as where I take many of my photos such as the Hullett Marsh, Goderich harbor, Amish/Mennonite country, a favorite pond area near Ben Miller, Grand Bend and of course Bayfield itself. If any readers can think of any place I have mentioned in my writings just let me know and I will locate the area and publish an aerial photo. With this clear Google Earth feature now it may lend a little perspective as to where Pheebs and & I go on many of our morning photo travels.

GROANER’S CORNER:(( This man was sitting quietly reading his paper one morning, peacefully enjoying himself, when his wife sneaks up behind him and swacks him on the back of his head with a huge frying pan. He asks, 'What was that for?' She replies, 'What was that piece of paper in your pants pocket with the name Marylou written on it?' He says, 'Oh honey, remember two weeks ago when I went to the horse races? Marylou was the name of one of the horses I bet on.' She is appeased and goes off to work around the house. Three days later he is once again sitting in his chair reading and she repeats the frying pan swatting. He says, 'What's that for this time?' She answered, 'Your horse just called.'
Q: Why is the barn so noisy?
A: Because the cows have horns.
Now here’s a joke with little hope of reality in regards to America’s future and everything to do with a true reality concerning England’s future………The President of the United States and England’s Prime Minister are shown a time machine which can see 100 years into the future. They both decide to test it by asking it one question each. The President goes first: "What will the USA be like in 100 years time?" The machine whirrs and beeps and goes into action and gives him a printout. He reads it out: "The country is in good hands under the new President, crime is non-existent, there is no conflict, the economy is healthy. There are no worries." England’s Prime Minister thinks, "Hey that’s not a bad time machine” so he too asks the same question. "What will Britain be like in 100 years time?" The machine whirrs and beeps and goes into action, and he gets a printout. But he just stares at it. "Tell us what it says." inquires the President. The Prime Minister answers, "I can't! It's all in Arabic!"
