The good news is that after today our daytime temperatures will remain above the 40F mark for the next 10 days. The bad news is that 6 of those 10 days are calling for rain. I see some serious sun depravation coming up here. Rains are predicted to begin overnight. Not good:((
A COUPLE OLD CROWS ON OUR BIRD STATION TODAY
With the last day of sunshine upon us for awhile I figured I had better spend some time getting things organized and continue with the yard clean-up. For a small piece of property it can sure keep me busy at times and as long as it is 'at times' I enjoy keeping myself busy. Sheds need to be de-winterized meaning all the outside stuff piled into them last Fall has to now come back outside again freeing up space in the sheds for all our paints and liquids that have to remain in boxes on our living room floor to keep them from freezing all winter. Gland to see those boxes finally out of the living room.
HAD ME A ROOTIN TOOTIN FIRE GOING IN OUR BURNING BARREL TODAY
HAD ME SOME GOOD SMOKE GOING TOO
In Wednesday's post I wrote about how I put my blog together and said how finicky I am about getting things right. You would think after reading it over 3 times before publishing it last night I would have caught all the errors in just the first couple paragraphs but like George said in a comment, "I do make a lot of typos though and even after re-reading, and editing I still miss them. Very frustrating". I know what you mean George, very frustrating indeed!!
Libby’s wheels never moved all day as Pheebs and I spent our entire time outside around the house. Kelly headed off to Goderich in the morning with her usual list of errands.
A COMMON GRACKLE
Well I’ve got two Doctors appointments behind me, one procedure coming up in less that two weeks followed closely by two more Doctors appointments after that. All this involves one Nurse Practitioner and two Doctors. So far so good:))
Here’s a link to a house and property in our area over near Holmesville. No, Kelly and I are not interested in this but history trivia buffs may find the last sentence of the property description paragraph interesting. I’ve always known about this Canadian/American connection but up until I read the paragraph I never knew the exact location of the property.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A college football coach was holding tryouts for the team one day, and a huge, hulking freshman showed up on the field and said he'd never played football, but he'd like to give it a shot. "Can you tackle?" asked the coach. The freshman looked around and spotted a telephone pole at the edge of the field. Without any delay or any padding, he charged smack into the pole, shattering it to splinters. "Wow," said the coach. "I'm impressed! Can you run?"
"Sure," said the freshman. He took off and dashed from one end of the field to the other and back, faster than anyone the coach had ever seen.
"That's great!" said the coach. He tossed a ball to the young man and asked, "Do you think you can pass a football?" The freshman turned the ball over in his hands, hesitating for a few seconds, and shrugged. "Well, sir," he said, "If I can swallow it, I can probably pass it!"
A well-worn one dollar bill and a similarly distressed twenty dollar bill arrived at a Federal Reserve Bank to be retired. As they moved along the conveyor belt to be burned, they struck up a conversation. The twenty dollar bill reminisced about its travels all over the county. "I've had a pretty good life," the twenty proclaimed. "Why I've been to Las Vegas and Atlantic City, the finest restaurants in New York, performances on Broadway, and even a cruise to the Caribbean.""Wow!" said the one dollar bill. "You've really had an exciting life!"
"So tell me," says the twenty, "where have you been throughout your lifetime?"
The one dollar bill replies, "Oh, I've been to the Methodist Church, the Baptist Church, the Lutheran Church ..." The twenty dollar bill interrupts, "What's a church?"
