AN OLD LOG LIES PARTIALLY SUBMERGED IN THE REFLECTED POND WATERS OF LAST AUTUMNS LEAVES
Knowing I might be awhile at Goderich’s Maitland Valley Medical Clinic this morning I gave Pheebs the choice of coming along and waiting for me or staying home. Well that was a dumb question on my part and in no short order she let me know she was going and that was that no matter how long I took in the clinic. Turns out it was slightly over an hour but it wasn’t hot and sunny out so she was comfortably happy to have a snooze in the Jeep.
I BELIEVE THAT TO BE SOME KIND OF SURFACED ROOT SYSTEM
My Nurse Practitioner spent a fair bit of time with me this morning getting some meds straightened out and discussing a few other concerns I’ve had especially about my legs. I don’t think I had ever remembered to point out the varicose veins especially in my left leg. After showing them to her she is going to line up a Doppler Scan of my legs plus a prescription pair of pressure stockings. Maybe it is the varicose veins that have been causing me many of the leg pains over the years. Finishing up there I walked next door and had blood drawn for my Urologist appointment next Tuesday. I sure had one happy little doggy waiting for me when I finally made my way back to the Jeep.
REFLECTIONS IN A POND
As a reward for Pheebs being so good I stopped and filled up with gas at one of two gas bars in Goderich where she always gets a doggy treat. Thanks to the Solo and Shell gas bars for doing that and whenever I pull into one of those two places Pheebs just goes Bonkers knowing the attendants will give her a treat.
SPRING SEEMS TO BE ON HOLD WAITING FOR SUNNY WARM DAYS…..SPRING ISN’T THE ONLY THING WAITING, SO ARE WE THE PEOPLE!!
Quick stop at Walmart for a few things then over to Tim Hortons drive-thru. I am really getting to like their new Carrot Cake muffins. A bit sticky on the fingers and steering wheel with the soft creamy center but we cleaned up nicely.
SAW THIS ON A FARM SOUTH OF AUBURN THIS MORNING AND NO I DON’T THINK IT’S A TRACTOR OR A COMBINE
From Hortons it was straight away out into the countryside to see if we could scratch us up some photos for tonight’s post. Also with the next two days forecast to be downright cold, wet, and miserable I knew we needed to get ourselves out for a couple hours before being stuck in the house for another 48 hours. With gray skies overhead it was a drab day so we had to pull out all the stops to even find a few photos.
WE SURE HAVE US SOME BACK COUNTRY ROADS HERE IN HURON COUNTY
We were home by noon and with my left arm still giving me trouble again today I came inside out of the damp cold and stayed there. I had hoped to get the power washer going today to get the salt off the Motorhome but figured it would be smarter for me to rest my arm for the next couple days and hopefully do it this Saturday when warmer weather is forecast. Bruce was here finishing up the last of the new decks lattice work but it was something he could manage on his own without my help. Not that I’ve been of much help to him anyway. He has a lot more fortitude and smarts for that sort of thing than I do.
WE HAVE MANY CEDAR TREE GROVES HERE IN HURON COUNTY
GROANER’S CORNER:(( The counselor was giving advice to a young man: "To gain self-confidence, you must avoid using negative words, such as CAN'T and NOT. Do you think you can do that?" The young man responded, "Well, I can't see why not."
“It was cold in the bedroom so I laid down next to the wood-stove and slept like a log.”
An old fisherman wrote to a mail order house the following: "Please send me one of those gasoline engines for my boat that you show on page 438, and if it's any good, I'll send you a check." In a short time, he received the following reply: "Please send check. If it's any good, we'll send the engine."
