ONE OF ONLY 2 PHOTO I TOOK TODAY WAS OF THESE TWO BUZZARDS SITTING ON A BARN ROOF AND IT ABOUT SUMS UP OUR DAY……COLD, GRAY, AND DREADFULLY DRAB
Met for coffee this afternoon with 1 of my 2 best friends. Long time readers will remember me writing about our 4 and 5 hour coffee blow-outs over the years and today on our first one of 2017 we hung out in Clinton’s Tim Horton coffee shop for nearly 5 hours. Never occurred to me until later that I was the only one who had a coffee though. I’m talking about my good friend Jim Hagarty from Stratford Ontario of course and you can find Jim at Lifetime Sentences. Jim has been in the Journalism field for as long as I have known him which dates back to late 1979. Also an accomplished singer songwriter Jim for the second year in a row shared the stage recently in Stratford with Canada’s very own well known composer, songwriter, and touring folksinger Valdy.
<<< BRUCE MADE THE WOODEN STAND AND I LEVELLED UP A CEMENT PAD UNDERNEATH IT THIS MORNING….BRUCE WILL BE BACK TO CONFIGURE THE DOWNSPOUT SHORTLY
Pheebs and I slipped up to Home Hardware in Goderich this morning to pick us up a new rain barrel which will sit alongside our deck extension to catch rain water from our roof which an eaves trough prevents from splashing down onto our deck. We prefer watering our outside summer plants with rain water as opposed to our chlorinated tap water. The plants prefer it too.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( At the cocktail party, one woman said to another, "Aren't you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger?" The other replied "Yes, I am, I married the wrong man."
There was an Irishman, a Mexican, and a blond guy who worked construction together. They were working on top of a building one day, and it was lunch time. The Irish man opens his lunch pail and he sees he has cabbage and beef, and he says, 'If I get one more beef and cabbage for lunch I'm gonna jump off of this building!'
Then the Mexican opens his lunch pail and he gets a burrito, he says, 'if I get one more burrito for lunch I'm gonna jump off this building!'
The blond man opens his lunch pail and gets a bologna sandwich. He says, 'if I get one more bologna sandwich I'm gonna jump off of this building too!' The next day the Irish man opens his lunch pail and finds cabbage and beef so he jumps off the building to his death. Then the Mexican opens his lunch pail and finds a burrito so he jumps off the building to his death as well. Then the blond guy opens his lunch pail and finds a bologna sandwich, so he in turn jumps to his death. A couple days later at their funeral the Irish man's wife said, 'If I only knew he was sick of cabbage and beef I would have packed him something else.' Then the Mexican's wife said, ''If I only knew he didn't like burritos, I would have packed something else.'' Finally, the blond man's wife said, 'I don't know what my husband’s problem was! He packed his own lunch!''
