YEP IT WAS UP CLOSE TO AMISH/MENNONITE COUNTRY WE WAS THIS MORNING BUT IT WASN’T PHEEBS I HAD WITH ME THIS TIME
Had ourselves a warm Wednesday night which gave way to cooler morning temps brought in by a narrow traveling band of rain showers in the wee small hours of the morning. And guess what.....I had previously made sure the shed doors as well as the Motorhome door was closed and the Jeep's windows wound up. No scrambling around in my pajamas dodging buckets of rain the middle of the night. Now how about that eh:))
SPOTTED THIS HORSE AND BUGGY BESIDE THE ROAD AND THERE APPEARED TO BE NOBODY AROUND
NOPE, NOBODY AROUND
WASN’T UNTIL WE GOT OURSELVES TURNED AROUND THAT WE SAW THE FOLKS COMING OUT THIS CORNFIELD WITH A LOAD OF COBS ON THE HORSE DRAWN WAGON
Neither threat of rain or cloud could keep Richard and I from our Thursday morning country coffee run and away we went for a two and a half hour drive through Huron Counties colorful Autumn scenery. Always lots to talk about and again it was quality time well spent sorting out the complexities of life. We'll do it all over again about 6 months from now when we once more hit the local country roads next year for our annual Spring coffee run catch up. Richard is seven years older than me so by next Spring I know he’s gonna be a whole seven years more smarterer than me again too………..
BOTH RICHARD AND I ARE COW TALKERS SO WE STOPPED ALONGSIDE THIS COUNTRY ROAD TO CHAT UP SOME OF THE LOCALS
RICHARD’S CHATTING IT UP WITH THAT LITTLE WHITE FELLA
WORRIED THE LITTLE GUY WAS HAVING TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING HIM RICARD TALKS TO HIM IN SIGN LANGUAGE AND THAT DID THE TRICK AS THE LITTLE FELLER MOOED US BACK A BIG ‘GOOD MORNING’
STANDING LIKE THAT ON THE HILLSIDE WE WONDERED IF THIS LITTLE CHAP WAS ONE OF THE NEW HYBRID COW-MOUNTAIN GOATS WE’VE BEEN HEARING ABOUT
NOW WE DID KNOW THIS HERE WAS A REAL COW WE DID
“YA KNOW CLEM I AM JUST SO PROUD OF OUR LITTLE DAISY”
HILLSIDE COWS UNDER A STORMY LOOKING CLOUD TOSSED SKY
Our yellow pine needles were falling like snow in today's wind covering the ground in a golden glow like the very yellow brick road itself. We're fast approaching the time of year when the weather can turn on a dime and become nasty so we have our fingers crossed that we will be out of here and on our way before it happens. We have been very lucky over the years regarding bad weather happening around our date of departure with the exception being last year when we got the heavy snow dump on October 19th that busted up our trees real good. We did end today under mainly sunny skies but it sure felt cold at 50F compared to over 70 on Wednesday. In the morning we plan to take the Big EEE for a short run to make sure all systems are go for our Tuesday launch………:))
PINE NEEDLES ON THE JEEP FIRST THING THIS MORNING
FOLLOW THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD TO OUR HOUSE
THE LATE AFTERNOON SUN HAD AN EERIE YELLOW CASTE TO IT
Dropped around to see our good friends and fellow RV Bloggers Chris and Caron this afternoon. (Travels With CC And Dixie) We didn't have far to go as C and C with their dog Dixie live in the same Park we do. You may remember Caron and Chris moved into our Park just a year ago after reading my blog for a few years and deciding my writings about the Park perfectly suited their future plans. I'm pleased to say they have been very, very, happy with their decision and it makes Kelly and I feel very good that it has worked out so well for them. When I asked how they liked it here after one year Chris responded with a resounding ‘LOVE IT’. Good stuff guys:))
STANDING AT THE END OF OUR DRIVEWAY I AM LOOKING TOWARDS RICHARD AND GAYLE’S AND BECKHAMS PLACE THERE IN THE BIG TREES TO THE LEFT…FURRY FOUR LEGGED .BECKHAM AND PHEEBS ARE BIG PALS
GROANER'S CORNER:(( The owner of a drug store walks in to find a guy leaning heavily against a wall. The owner asks the clerk, "What's with that guy over there by the wall?" The clerk says, "Well, he came in here this morning to get something for his cough. I couldn't find the cough syrup, so I gave him an entire bottle of laxative." The owner says, "You idiot! You can't treat a cough with a bottle of laxatives!"
The clerk says, "Of course, you can! Look at him; he's afraid to cough now!"

At an Easter mass, at which some young ladies were to take their final vows to become nuns, the presiding bishop noticed two rabbis enter the church just before the mass began. They were seated at the back of the sanctuary and insisted on sitting on the right side of the center aisle. The bishop wondered why they had come but didn't have time to inquire before the mass began. When it came time for some announcements, his curiosity got the best of him. He announced that he was delighted to see two rabbis in their midst at the mass but was curious as to why they were present at this occasion where the young ladies were to become the "Brides of Christ." The eldest of the rabbis slowly rose to his feet and explained, "Family of the Groom."
