WELCOMING SIGNS OF SPRING
With mornings first rays of sunlight poking through tall pine trees I knew Pheebs and I had better get on out there and soak us up as much of that magic stuff as we could. We had Libby’s wheels rolling before 8 a.m.
ALONG LAKE HURON’S SHORELINE WHERE LAND MEETS WATHER A LONG NARROW CLOUD BANK ATTESTS TO THE DIFFERENCE IN TEMPERATURE BETWEEN THE TWO
IT’S A STRANGE SHADOW LIBBY CASTS IN THE MORNING’S LIGHT
It wasn’t a long drive we took ourselves on but we did soak up as much April 1rst countryside as we could. Knowing Bruce was coming around 10 to work on the deck we had ourselves back home by 9:30.
OUT AROUND THE HULLETT MARSH
WE LOVE OUR RURAL FARMLANDS HERE IN SOUTHERN ONTARIO
Bruce is a steady worker and I wish I had half as much energy and patience as he does. Deck and railings are all but done and Sunday morning he will be back to work on installing a gate and some lattice work around the deck’s bottom.
ON NO I HOPE BRUCE DOESN’T SEND ME INTO TOWN TO GET A BOARD STRETCHER
We wrapped things up around 5 o’clock and what a relief it was to come inside and sit down in the cozy warmth of our house. Pancakes with real maple syrup and sausages for supper really hit the spot. And how nice to finally crumble into my recliner and give my legs and back a rest.
I THINK SOMEBODY GOT A HOLD OF MY CAMERA AGAIN
OKAY SO RIGHT UP THERE YOU USE A RHINO WRENCH TO NAIL THE DIGGLE HOOCH TO THAT BOARD-O-MAGATOR HANGING FROM THE HOOFENBEAR ARCH AND………………….
‘DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I’M TELLING YA’? ….. “NO, WHAT’S A HOOFENBEAR’??
NOTICE THE DENT IN THE FRONT OF MY HAT…..I GOT THAT WHEN I TWICE WALKED INTO THAT BROWN 2X4 RAILING
I CAN HEAR BRUCE TALKING BUT I’M TOO INTENT ON REEKING HAVOC ON THAT 2X4 TO HEAR ANYTHING HE’S SAYING!!
With my legs and back hurting again it was a long day. I think this steady cold and damp is overpowering even my prescription arthritis medicine. Tired tonight folks and just need to go lay down for awhile.
THE SAME BUNCH OF CROCUS’S IN OUR BACK YARD CAUGHT MY ATTENTION AGAIN WHEN I SAW A SMALL HONEY BEE BUSILY BUZZING ABOUT
I HADN’T NOTICED THE TINY YELLOW FLOWER THERE A COUPLE DAYS AGO
1. "Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some broken clouds, but we'll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you, and
remember, nobody loves you, or your money, more than Southwest Airlines."
2. "Your seat cushions can be used for flotation, and, in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with you with our compliments."
3. "As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses."
4. And from the pilot during his welcome message: "Delta airlines is pleased to have some of the best flight attendants in the industry. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight!"
5. Overheard on an American Airlines flight into Amarillo, Texas, on a particularly windy and bumpy day: During the final approach, the Captain was really having to fight it. After an extremely hard landing, the Flight Attendant said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Amarillo. Please remain in your seats with your seat belts fastened while the Captain taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate.
How many mystery writers does it take to change a light bulb? Two, one to put it almost all the way in and the other to give it a surprising twist at the end.
