Knowing I had only a few hours workable time outside before the day’s heat and humidity built up I was up on the Motorhome’s roof with a long handled scrub brush, bucket of soapy water and the garden hose shortly after 8 a.m. Fortunately the roof was not as dirty as I had feared. No moss, mold, or pine sap but enough dust and ordinary dirt to turn my wash and rinse water a dirty gray color. I was probably on the roof close to 40 minutes scrubbing and rinsing.
APPARENTLY I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO TAKES CANDID PHOTOS
ONE HAS TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT THE PLACEMENT OF ONE’S FEET UP HERE
YOU CAN SEE BY THE GRAY COLORED WATER THE ROOF WAS A BIT DIRTY ALRIGHT
An unexpected patchy cloud cover rolled in and that went a long way in keeping the humidity down for most of the morning so I was able to also wash the rig’s front cap including windshield. Knowing better than to try and wash the whole rig I toned things down a bit and decided to wash the Jeep and Kelly’s Sunfire instead while I had the hose and buckets out. I’ll maybe tackle the rigs rear cap Wednesday then work my way around doing the sides. I have found now that I am aging I have to use my energy wiser in order to make it last longer. Older guys will understand this while younger guys wouldn’t have a clue what I’m talking about. Oh how I do remember those wonderful clueless years long ago:))
VIEW OF OUR FOREST SETTING FROM ATOP THE RIG
I REALLY DON’T KNOW WHY I BOTHER TO WASH THE JEEP WITH THE NUMBER OF DUSTY COUNTRY ROADS PHEEBS AND I ARE CONSTANTLY ON EVERY WEEK
MUCH EASIER TO KEEP KELLY’S PONTIAC SUNFIRE CLEANER THOUGH BECAUSE IT PROBABLY HASN’T SEEN A GRAVEL ROAD MAYBE EVER
As soon as I publish this tonight I am going to take myself out to see a movie. I don’t care much for watching movies on TV even if they are big screens. I like the big movie theater screens and the big movie theater sound. I like the darkened setting with no distractions or interruptions of any kind. Eyes, ears, and senses totally immersed and focused on the whole movie experience. Some may recall the last movie I went to see in Goderich which might have been 2 summers ago. It’s a 2 movie set-up and I walked into the wrong movie and got stuck sitting there watching a movie I had not set out to see and it was crap!! I’ll be sure not to allow myself that Senior moment again!! The last 2 movies I chose to see in ‘the correct theaters’ I didn’t like. I’m sort of an old Star Trek fan from a millennium way back but the last Star Trek movie I saw ended any desire I might have at seeing any more Star Trek movies. Same thing happened to me for the last Star Wars movie which I happened to see in Yuma last winter. No more of those movies either. Somewhere along the line I have taken a total dislike for all the over the top mindless violence in those kinds of movies. Super hero this, super hero that. Baaaaaaa Humbug!!
Tonight I am off to see the animated movie, ‘Finding Dory’. I want to be entertained not by violence and endless fiery explosions, guns, blood and guts and all that mindless bunk but a movie I can smile about, have feelings for, maybe shed a tear or two. I want to be carried away in a feeling good state of fantasy. An intelligent movie with colors, characters, a heart warming sound track and a movie where I can walk out of the theatre with a big satisfied smile on my face feeling on top of the world because I have just had a total feeling good experience. A movie with niceties. Wish me luck……………..:))
WASN’T MUCH GOING ON FOR PHEEBS TODAY SO SHE TOOK HER TOYS OUT TO SOAK UP SOME SUN IN THE BACK YARD
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A minister dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him is a guy who's dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket, and jeans. Saint Peter addresses this guy, "Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?" The guy replies, "I'm Joe Cohen, taxi-driver, of Noo Yawk City." Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the taxi-driver, "Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven." The taxi-driver goes into Heaven with his robe and staff, and it's the minister's turn. He stands erect and booms out, "I am Joseph Snow, pastor of Saint Mary's for the last forty-three years." Saint Peter consults his list. He says to the minister, "Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven." "Just a minute," says the minister. "That man was a taxi-driver and he gets a silken robe and golden staff. How can this be?" "Up here, we work by results," says Saint Peter."While you preached, people slept; while he drove, people prayed."
Giving a man his physical, a doctor noticed several dark, ugly bruises on his shins, so he asked, "Do you play hockey?" "No." "Do you play soccer?" "No." "Do you play any other physical sports?" "Not at all. I just play bridge with my wife."
