Hardly worth mentioning a short Jeep ride Pheebs and I took on this cloudy damp Monday morning so I probably won’t.  IMG_0552


A Guest in in our Shout Box asked, ‘Al, is the blog name here to stay..or will it change back in September’?  The question refers to my blog’s name of course which on a whim a couple days ago I changed from ‘Travels With The Bayfield Bunch’ which is what it has always been to ‘Hanging Out With The Bayfield Bunch’.  It’s unlikely the Bunch will be doing any traveling again until around the end of October sometime so thought maybe ‘Hanging Out’ was a better fit for our activities from now till then.  I would be curious as to what readers think.  Don’t know if changing the blog’s title would affect the mechanics of the blog or not but so far it seems like business as usual. 


GROANER’S CORNER:(( A fellow nurse at my hospital received a call from an anxious patient.  "I'm diabetic and I'm afraid I've had too much sugar today." the caller said.
"Are you light-headed?" my colleague asked.
"No," the caller answered, "I'm a brunette."


"I married an Irishman on St. Patrick's Day."
"Oh, really?"
"No, O'Reilly!"

Who's there?
Myth who?
Myth you too!


  1. Love those pics of beautiful Pheebs. Doesn't matter to me what you call the blog...As long as you don't call it "QUITS" 😄

  2. Great pictures of Phoebe today. Hanging or Traveling doesn't make a difference to me. I just like seeing the pictures and reading about it.

  3. Love to see pictures of your Phoebe. We have three dogs and just love them. Dogs are special, for sure. Sure do get a laugh out of Groaner's Corner.

  4. Hanging seems to reflect the current status, but you're likely to be Traveling in the US. I don't know that you need any more readers, but some may find you by entering key works like travel so you would miss those folks if you change it permanently. Maybe both works?

  5. Changing the blog title will affect the Google Bots and search engine results after a period of time. Like Jodee talks about above in her comment, but in that case those readers would find you if they included "Bayfield" in their search. You can type in both titles to see what shows up in all the search engines but I would give the new title a couple of weeks for the change to be indexed by the search engines.

    1. Thanks Steve I was wondering about that.

  6. Hey you are who you are are, we are too the blog is yours. now need to change it. It is always wonderful not matter what you do. Man6 memories of your lifestyle and travels.

  7. Amen to the comment. Doesn't' matter what you call the blog. Just not "Quits"!!
    Just keep on doing your thing with the photos, the thoughts, the groaners. Your is the best blog.

  8. Hey Al, I think the short jeep outings you and Pheebs take are just as much fun and travel as the long cross country journeys in the EEE...... It is always fun being along for the ride and the photo shoots......
    I like the " Travel " title ! You're the BEST !!!

  9. There can never be too many photos of Pheebs!! I so enjoy watching her cute:) Thanks!

  10. I didn't notice/see the change. It really doesn't matter too me, you are still the Bayfield Bunch! You are still my my first read with my morning coffee. If you quit I may have to resort to tea!

  11. It is about your beautiful pictures and words not a title.

  12. I noticed that change. I kinda like it.

  13. Even when you are in Bayfield, you are traveling around and checking things out, Al. I vote for Travels, as you and Kelly are travelers in spirit, even when sitting still.

  14. Darn. I was hoping you and Kelly would show us around Canada this summer, maybe head west to those Canadian Rockies :)

  15. Either title works. I hang out in the evenings to see what the Bayfield Bunch has been doing for entertainement. Personally, feel like we hangout with you or is it we just tag along for the adventure you add to our lives. The pictures of Pheebes sleeping are hilarious. That girl is so expressive awake or asleep. Your blog...your choice. We will be wherever you are. What is the saying? You can run but you can't hide.

  16. hanging out or's all an interesting read..'heading out west, this summer? know that's where we are...drop us a line if you are in our 'neighborhood'

  17. I, too, like "travel." You almost never are sitting still, ya know...

  18. I like the 'travels.' It's always been travels, even when you're puttering at home for the summer. And, always a fun read!

  19. I don't like too much change so I have to say I prefer the original title but regardless I will still be reading your posts.
