In the space of about 3 hours this morning I went from being too hot to too cold to too hot again. Humidity was still heavy in the air when I woke up so had the fans running. A couple hours after that heading for Goderich I had to put a touch of heat on in the Jeep and near the lake had to stop and put a jacket on. Less than an hour after that heading home with humidity levels again on the rise Pheebs and I had all the windows down. Both Toronto and Windsor Ontario broke heat records Monday. Today was cloudy until mid afternoon and that helped keep the sticky heat down. Didn’t have to turn our A/C on today but I did stick pretty close to my cooling fans. Crazy weather.
A COUPLE CANADA GEESE SWIM AROUND THE BOW OF A LARGE LAKE FREIGHTER ANCHORED IN PORT
HEY I WONDER WHAT THOSE NUMBERS ARE ABOUT
A LARGE LAKE FREIGHTER HAS JUST LEFT THE GODERICH HARBOR
THE FREIGHTER HAS TURNED RIGHT HEADING NORTH AS A FELLOW JOGS OUT TO THE END OF A ROCKY POINT IN ROTARY COVE
WHILE WATCHING THE FREIGHTER HE HAULS OUT A CELL PHONE AND MAKES A CALL
“SORRY I MISSED THE BOAT CAPTAIN”
STORM CLOUDS WERE OVER GODERICH’S HARBOR THIS MORNING
LOOKS LIKE THIS CREW MEMBER ON THE COAST GUARD VESSEL CAPE DISCOVERY HAS DRAWN THE SHORT END OF THE STRAW ON THIS COLD MORNING AND IS STUCK WASHING THE BOAT
‘OH WHY OH WHY OH WHY DID I SIGN UP FOR THIS KIND OF LIFE’ !!
Much of my afternoon was spent on the internet looking up Nikon and Sony camera information. I am still trying to decide on buying that 18-300mm Nikon lens I’m interested in. Being in a position now to trade in some Nikon and Sony camera gear it makes that Nikon lens deal very doable for me. Decisions, decisions. One quality camera with one quality lens would sure be a lot more convenient for me in more ways than one.
CHECKING ON THE GODERICH HARBOR’S WORK PROGRESS…..I DIDN’T SEE ANY
THINGS WERE MOVING, SMOKE WAS COMING OUT OF STACKS AND PROPELLERS WERE CHURING WATER BUT I STILL DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY WERE DOING
BIRD ON A ROPE
Not being a professional photographer and thankfully not being a perfectionist I do not need the best of the best when it comes to most things including camera gear. Close enough to good enough is generally always good enough for me as long as I can get my photos looking as best I can with what I have for my blog each day that’s good enough for me and I am a happy camper.

Well, having read over what I just typed in the last paragraph I guess it looks like I have made a decision doesn’t it. A Nikon AF-S 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 G ED DX VR II lens it is then:))
GROANER’S CORNER:(( The Perks of Retirement::
You know that tingly little feeling you get when you really like someone? That's common sense leaving your body.
I didn't make it to the gym today. That makes five years in a row.
I decided to stop calling the bathroom the “John” and renamed it the “Jim”. I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
Old age is coming at a really bad time. When I was a child I thought “Nap Time” was a punishment. Now, as a grownup, it feels like a small vacation.
The biggest lie I tell myself is..."I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it."
I don't have gray hair; I have "wisdom highlights." I'm just very wise.
Teach your daughter how to shoot, because a restraining order is just a piece of paper.
If God wanted me to touch my toes, He would've put them on my knees.
Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators. We haven't met yet.
Why do I have to press one for English when you're just going to transfer me to someone I can't understand anyway?
Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice.
I am a Seenager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 60 years later.
I don’t have to go to school or work.
I get an allowance every month.
I have my own pad.
I don’t have a curfew.
I have a driver’s license and my own car.
I have ID that gets me into bars and the whisky store.
I don’t have acne.
Life is great. I have more friends I should get around to see, but right now I can't remember who they are.
HEY MY NEW APPLE COMPUTER JUST ARRIVED TODAY
