ON GOLDEN POND
With morning temperatures in the mid 30’s it was cold, damp and cloudy. Certainly not very inspirational for heading outside. However facing a second day of sitting in the house it was outside Pheebs and I went in search of a photo or two. Good luck I thought to myself as we headed fired up Libby. Finding even one photo on a dull bleak morning like this was going to be a challenge. Oh ya and I’m back into my lined winter pants and heavy flannel shirts again:((
I THINK CREW MEMBERS CHEECH AND CHONG MAY BE SMOKING SOME OF THAT THERE WHACKY TOBACCY BELOW DECKS
With a light drizzle in the air we made our way up to Goderich for a spin down around the harbor. Stopped and browsed through some driftwood pieces on the beach then headed off to find us a few groceries. Needed some lettuce, celery, and apples for my morning shakes. With those needed items finally in tow we headed home.
Spent a fair bit of my afternoon in our sunroom’s cozy corner reading and alas finally came to the end of my current read, The Diary of a Forty Niner. I always find it kinda sad when reaching the final chapter of a book I am enjoying. Generally I become wrapped up in the storied characters and it’s like saying a last good-bye to an old friend or friends in the end. One wishes the story would go on and on but there is always that final chapter. I prefer reading about real people and real places and this story played out northeast of Sacramento California through the years 1850 to 1852 near a growing little town called Nevada, now Nevada City. I enjoy books written in a plain understandable way and this Diary was such a book. History was one of my favorite topics in school many years ago and I still enjoy reading about it all these years later.
WE ALWAYS HAVE A BUNCH OF DARK-EYED JUNCOS IN OUR FRONT YARD AT THIS TIME EACH YEAR
BESIDES BLACK SQUIRRELS WE HAVE SMALLER RED SQUIRRELS HERE AS WELL
First hint of sunshine finally made it’s way to Earth around 3 this afternoon and landed on our sunroom floor. Skies continued to clear and by late afternoon the predominate color overhead through the pine trees was blue. Now if we can just get some warm air happening again that would be nice.
DID YOU KNOW MOURNING DOVES HAVE POWDER BLUE EYELIDS
GROANER’S CORNER:((A man takes his place in the theater, but his seat is too far from the stage.
He whispers to the usher, "This is a mystery, and I have to watch a mystery close up. Get me a better seat, and I'll give you a handsome tip."
The usher moves him into the second row, and the man hands the usher a quarter. The usher looks at the quarter, leans over and whispers, "The wife did it."
“I think I'm going to hire the same landscaper I used last year - he was really easy to get a lawn with.”
It was a baby mosquito's first day to fly out from home. When the mosquito came back later that day, the father mosquito asked, "How was your journey?" The baby mosquito replied, "It went great, everyone was clapping for me!"
