‘STARBUCKS’ IN BAYFIELD…..WHAT!!!!
PHEEBS ENJOYS A NICE SPRING DAY WHILE HELPING ME WITH THE YARD CLEAN-UP
I know Mother Nature is much better than I at removing snow and over the next few days I’m sure she will work away at doing just that. But me being the impatient fellow I am I planted myself on the end of my snow shovel first thing this morning and headed out into the front yard to help her out and re-arrange the snow anyway.
GOING TO NEED SOME SERIOUSLY WARM AIR AND SUNSHINE TO GET THIS SHADED FROG POND OUT OF HIBERNATION
Knowing Saturday may be a crummy weather day and because the sun was shining this morning I took Pheebs for a short snort in the Jeep. A couple nearby country roads and we were back home within the hour. Only photo I took was the one below.
THURSDAY MORNING THIS FARMER’S FIELD WAS COVERED IN SNOW AND THIS MORNING IT WAS NEARLY BARE
To the tune of melting snow dripping from our roof I decided it might be a fine time to start hauling out our summer yard stuff so that’s what I did. Not all of it mind you but I did make a start. A nice physiological boost to these recent bitter cold winter days:))
COULDN’T DECIDE WHICH PHOTO TO PUT IN OF THIS COLORFUL POT SO I PUT ALL 4 OF THEM IN
<<< GOT ME A GOOD START AT HAULING A BUNCH OF YARD STUFF OUT OF ONE OF OUR SHEDS
A phone call from the Maitland Valley Medical Center a couple days ago said a couple tests I had done last week came back A-OK. So far so good. This coming Monday I have an appointment with a Doctor in Goderich whom I have never met. We’ll see how that goes and what it entails.
WON’T BE LONG AND WE’LL HAVE OUR FIRST CAMPFIRE GOING OVER THERE
HAPPY TO SEE ALL THE SNOW HAS MELTED OFF OUR FRONT PORCH DECK
Unless we are on the road traveling it is very rare for Kelly and I to go out to eat anywhere but late this afternoon we made an exception. We had heard good things about the Out Of The Blue Fish & Seafood Market on the east side of highway 21 across from Clan Gregor Square in Bayfield. As readers well know I am not a seafood person but I do generally like Fish & Chips and that is what we had. Kelly chose Pickerel and I chose White Fish. Orders come in either small or large portions and we both chose the smaller size and it’s good we did because the fish portions are HUGE. I ate half my fish and was stuffed to the gills. (did ya get the play on words there) Kelly did better than I did but we both still took home a generous portion of our supper. Cole slaw was good as well as the home cut fries. This is a true ‘fresh fish market’. The husband of the lady who runs it owns one of the fishing boats docked in the Bayfield harbor.
A NICE CLEAN AND NEAT ESTABLISHMENT
KELLY CHECKS THE MENU WHICH IS WRITTEN ON THE WALL
NO WIMPY LITTLE PIECES OF FISH IN THIS PLACE…..’HUGE’
A couple days ago Kelly popped into her Doctor’s office at Michaels Pharmacy here in Bayfield to check on her latest blood tests and came home saying there was a Starbucks in Michael's Pharmacy. What!!!! A Starbucks coffee shop in Bayfield, how was that possible?? Bayfield doesn’t even have a traffic light anywhere and is hardly big enough for a Starbucks but when we drove in and around there today there was the big Starbuck poster in the Pharmacy window. Kelly said they have a counter with hot coffee thermoses and you get a cup and serve yourself so it is mainly a take-out service. I wish Starbucks well but why couldn’t that have been a Tim Hortons I thought to myself.
WOULD YOU BELIEVE THERE IS ACTUALLY A ‘STARBUCKS’ IN THERE
WELL THERE YA GO EH
KELLY READS A NOTE ON THE ‘SUBWAY’ DOOR
Another reason for driving into the small Plaza across from the Bayfield Garage was to check on the Subway Sandwich Shop. Pheebs and I had popped in there a few days ago and a big sign in the door said ‘CLOSED’. Kelly got out to read a note on the door which stated they were closed for the winter but would be re-opening in the Spring. Whewww, big sigh of relief there. Wouldn’t want Pheebs and I missing out on our Tuna Subs now would we:))
SHE SURE IS A VERY PRECIOUSLY SPECIAL LITTLE GIRL
TEACHER: Why are you late?
STUDENT: Well, because class started before I got here.
