Had ourselves a real mighty fine Saturday morning going on here with sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and big white fluffy clouds. It was my turn to drive as my good friend Richard and I headed out on one of our twice monthly country road coffee tours. Normally we go Thursdays but we had to take a rain check because of rain last Thursday. This mornings travels took us down to Grand Bend where we picked up a couple Horton coffees with matching banana muffins. A swing down around the beach and then off out into the countryside breezing through the little hamlets of Zurich and Varna along the way. Another very enjoyable manic Magpie morning.
A FEW PHOTOS FROM OUR MORNING COFFEE TOUR….STILL NICE TO OCCASIONALLY SEE OLDER TRACTORS IN THE FIELDS INSTEAD OF THE THOSE BIG HONKIN JOHN DEERE MOSSMAGATOR LIMOUSINE MACHINES MANY FARMERS NOW OWN
THIS PIECE OF MACHINERY IS A ROLLER AND THOSE BIG ROLLERS FOLD OUT FLAT ON THE GROUND AND THE WHOLE THING IS TOWED BEHIND A TRACTOR FLATTENING OUT ALL THE LUMPY FIELD DIRT GIVING THE BARE GROUND A FINE TEXTURE
SEEING MORE OF THESE ‘BARN QUILTS’ POPPING UP
THOUGHT IT UNUSUAL TO SEE A FLOCK OF CANADA GEESE FLYING IN THEIR USUAL V FORMATION THIS TIME OF YEAR….MOST ARE PAIRED UP BY NOW AND ON NESTS OR RAISING THEIR YOUNG ALREADY….HOPE RUSSIA ISN’T SENDING OVER GOOSE DRONES NOW!!
For lunch it was another yummy chicken pot pie from M&M MEATS followed by a peanut butter and honey sandwich. My PB & H sandwiches are always made with whole wheat flat bread. I roll it up like a wrap and that way the sticky peanut butter and honey can drip out of the ends all over my shirt and pants and shoes. By the way my peanut butter of choice is the kind made with no additives like salt etc. It’s the real stuff made with 100% peanuts. If I can’t find the real stuff then my next choice of peanut butter is Jif of course. For supper tonight it was 2 chocolate chip cookies followed by a nice bowl of porridge with a banana sliced on top. An hour later I chased that down with a peanut butter and honey sandwich without even dripping anything on my shoes for a change.
AT FIRST I DIDN’T KNOW WHO THIS WAS AT THE FEEDER TODAY BUT IT TURNED OUT TO BE A FEMALE BALTIMORE ORIOLE….I STILL HAVEN’T SEEN THE MALE
HERE SHE TRIES TO PICK UP A PIECE OF FISHING LINE THAT i HAVE A HANGING BIRD FEEDER ATTACHED TOO
Again not much to write about tonight as I simply puttered around in the flower gardens doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that thoroughly enjoying the fact I had a bit of that and a bit of this to do. Quite often now more than ever before I feel so fortunate to be at this place in life I am now at. I had written more about this but when I read it back to myself it sounded so sappy I had no choice but to delete it…………………..
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A woman was terribly overweight, so her doctor put her on a diet. "I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you'll have lost at least 5 pounds." When the woman returned, she shocked the doctor by losing nearly 20 pounds. "Why, that's amazing!" the doctor said, "Did you follow my instructions?" The woman nodded. "I'll tell you though, I thought I was going to drop dead that third day." "From hunger, you mean?" "No, from skipping."
Hillary Clinton died and went to heaven. St. Peter approached her and says "Hillary, I know you're 'somebody' down on Earth, but up here, you're just another person. And, I'm swamped right now, so have a seat and I'll get back with you as soon as I can." So Hillary sits down and begins looking at her surroundings. She notices a huge wall that extends as far as the eye can see. And on that wall there are millions and millions of clocks. She can't help notice that on occasion some of the clocks jump ahead fifteen minutes. When St. Peter returns she asks "What's the deal with the clocks?" St. Peter replies "There is a clock on the wall for every married man on Earth." Hillary asks, "Well what does it mean when the clock jumps ahead 15 minutes?" St. Peter replies, "That means that the man that belongs to that clock has just committed adultery." Hillary asks, "Well, is my husband's clock on the wall?" St. Peter replies, "Of course not. God has it in his office and is using it for an electric fan."
