SPOTTED THESE AUTUMN CROCUS FLOWERS ALONG ORCHARD LINE ON MY HOME FROM GODERICH EARLIER TODAY
I don’t know if I would call it very cool or slightly cold but I did have to turn around and go back into the house this morning to put on warmer clothes. Thermometer outside our sunroom said 49F and that was invigorating enough for me to clean a couple windows right off the bat…..but only a couple. Windows are definitely not my favorite thing to do and I can only take cleaning them in small doses.
ALONG THE SHORES OF LAKE HURON THIS MORNING
My Toshiba Satellite laptop only has 42 Gigabytes left on it’s hard drive and with 252 Gigabytes in just photos alone in the Toshiba I knew I needed to do something before heading off to the Southwest next month so Pheebs and I headed off to Goderich to price some 1-Terabyte external hard drives. (One Terabyte equals1,000 Gigabytes) I plan to transfer the 252 photo Gigs from the laptop to the external hard drive then delete my laptop photos freeing up a lot of space. From there it was down around the harbor to the south end of Rotary Cove. No other people at the dog walking area with their dogs so Pheebs and I headed off for a walk on the heavily dew laden grass.
Lake Huron was calm with wave heights not exceeding half an inch. A soft faint swish as waves eased in and tickled the sandy pebble laden shore. Just an absolutely beautiful September day again with the morning sun soon coaxing me out of my warm outer layered flannel shirt.
It was another marathon coffee blow-out for my good Buddy Jim (Lifetime Sentences) and I this afternoon at Clinton’s Time Horton coffee shop. Bringing it in just under five and a half hours we both agreed that had to be pretty close to one of our all time blow-out records. We didn’t skip a beat as we sailed through all the things needing to be caught up upon after our last session maybe a month and a half ago. Always lots in common so always lots to talk about and by the time we meet again next April we will undoubtedly have even more to talk about. Could very well turn out to even be an 8 hour blockbuster:))
Browsing through TV channels Wednesday night trying desperately to avoid the rough and tumble political minefield of our neighbor to the South on most channels I blundered into a real blast from the past, my boyhood past to be exact. I had clicked on Turner Classic Movies and there was one of my favorite movies from 60 years ago. 'Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein'. As a kid the movie was so funny, so scary, and all so real at the same time. Watching it for awhile last night it was unfortunately not really any of those fun things to me anymore and I felt sad about that knowing my innocent young boys mind had so long ago left me to the harsher realities and logics of an adult mind. Oh to feel a young boy's honestly innocent excitement again………………………
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A little old lady goes into the store to do some shopping. She is bewildered over the large selection of toilet paper. "Pardon me, sir," she says to the store manager, "but can you explain the differences in all these toilet papers?" "Well," he replies pointing out one brand, "this is as soft as a baby's kiss. It's $1.50 per roll." He grabs another and says, "This is nice and soft like a bunny, strong but gentle, and it's $1.00 a roll."
Pointing to the bottom shelf he tells her, "We call that our No Name brand, and it's 20 cents per roll." "Give me the No Name," she says.
She comes back about a week later, seeks out the manager and says, "Hey! I've got a name for your No Name toilet paper. I call it John Wayne."
"Why?" he asks. "Because it's rough, it's tough and it don't take crap off anybody!"
A retired man who volunteers to entertain patients in nursing homes and hospitals went to Walton hospital in Liverpool and took his portable keyboard along. He told some jokes and sang some funny songs at patients' bedsides.
When he finished he said, in farewell, "I hope you get better." One elderly gentleman replied, "I hope you get better, too."
Two attorneys went into a diner and ordered two drinks. Then they produced sandwiches from their briefcases and started to eat. The owner became quite concerned and marched over and told them, "You can't eat your own sandwiches in here!" The attorneys looked at each other, shrugged their shoulders and then exchanged sandwiches.
