If someone were to ask me what my favorite color was I would probably be hard pressed to come up with an answer. Depends where the color is I suppose but if it’s in the sky then my favorite color for that area is blue. And blue it was this morning as Pheebs and I again headed out for another couple hours of country road ramblings.
NORTH OF GODERICH EMPTY FARM WAGONS STAND IN A HARVESTED FIELD OF WINTER WHEAT
ALL PHOTOS AGAIN TODAY TAKEN FROM THE DRIVER’S SEAT
PHEEBS LOVES TO STOP AND WATCH COWS
Stopped at the Goderich Power Center and picked up the remaining money from the motorcycle sale so that completes that whole transaction. Am I missing my motorcycle yet? No not at all but they did have a nice little Harley Sportster sitting in their that caught my eye. But only for a second or two and it was out the door with me and gone on down the road we was.
LOOKING HARD OUT OVER LAKE WAWANOSH I COULD SEE SOMETHING WAY OUT IN THE WATER TOP LEFT
YEP, LOOKS LIKE A CANOE WAY OUT THERE ALRIGHT
THREE FISHERMENT METHINKS
OFF TO MY RIGHT I COULD HEAR YOUNG PEOPLE’S VOICES BUT THE ONLY THING I COULD SEE WAS THIS FISHING LINE COMING OUT OF THE BUSHES
‘OH-OH’ THOSE FELLERS IN THE CANOE ARE HEADED OUR WAY, TIME TO GET OUT OF HERE
Our wanderings this morning took us up through Amish/Mennonite country where I was hoping to find a few photos of wheat sheaves stooked up in the fields. Looks like I was about a week or two late with most of the fields having been cut, stooked, loaded up on wagons and hauled off to local barns. Only stooked wheat photo I managed to find was a telephoto shot of a field half a mile or more away.
THIS FAR AWAY FIELD WAS THE ONLY ONE I SAW WITH WHEAT SHEAVES STACKED UP IN STOOKS…..DID YOU SEE THE WINDMILL?
‘HEY DON’T YOU WALK AWAY WHEN I’M TALKIN TO YA JUNIOR!!’
Had us what I would call a perfect weather day Blue sunny skies with a few clouds, low to no humidity in the earlier morning air and a wisp of a breeze with a high of 70F. Sure is a beautiful world we live in when the weather’s nice:))
OLD FARM MACHINES OF YESTERYEAR ARE STILL IN USE HERE IN MENNONITE COUNTRY
I THINK THESE AMISH FOLKS HAVE SOME OF THE BEST GARDENS
BRAND NEW MENNONITE HOUSE AND BARN
IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY YOU CAN SEE ALL 4 OF THE HORES HOOVES ARE OFF THE GROUND
HANGIN AROUND THE BARN ON A WARM SUMMER’S MORN
Kelly’s London Doctor phoned her this past Saturday morning and after consulting with 2 other specialists regarding her last June CT-scan told her he wants her to have another CT scan in early October. Yes we have definitely entered our Senior years alright.
I ALWAYS ENJOY SEEING THE NICE FARMS THESE OLD ORDER MENNONITE AND AMISH FOLKS HAVE
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Everybody on earth dies and goes to heaven. God comes and says "I want the men to make two lines -- one line for the men that dominated their women on earth, and the other line for the men who were dominated by their women. Also, I want all the women to go with St Peter." The next time God looked, the women are gone, and there are two lines. The line for the men who were dominated by their women was 100 miles long, and in the line of men who dominated their women there was only one man. God got mad and said "You men should be ashamed of yourselves. I created you in my image and you were all whipped by your mates. Look at the only one of my sons who stood up and made me proud. Learn from him! Tell them, my son, how did you manage to be the only one in this line?" The man replied "I don't know, my wife told me to stand here."
- We’ve begun to long for the pitter-patter of little feet, so we bought a dog. It’s cheaper, and you get more feet.
- “Did you hear about the nun who procrastinated doing her laundry? She had a filthy habit.”
- "So I got home, and the phone was ringing. I picked it up, and said 'Who's speaking please?'
And a voice said 'You are.'"
- What's the difference between a man and a bottle of whisky? Whisky improves with age.
- Why does a man have a clear conscience?Because it is unused.
- What do you call a man who has suddenly lost 98 percent of his brain? Divorced.
- What do UFOs and caring men have in common? You keep hearing about them but you never see any for yourself.
Stopwatch you’re doing and pay attention!
It sure was a wonderful blue sunny day, and the back country roads perfect as well. Love your photos of your day.ReplyDelete
Levitating horses, I knew they used some high tech. Great pic.ReplyDelete
It was just about a perfect day! Worked outside in the garden til nearly 9 pm. Afraid I'm in the same position as Kelly, waiting to hear about the next Dr's apt and CT scan. Makes you feel old!ReplyDelete
Love the Amish/Mennonite farms too. Wonder if it's mandatory for them toReplyDelete
all be so neat and tidy on their farms?
Also, what do you think the article was that was tied to the back of
the wagon in one of your above pictures! Something large and metal.
I wondered what that was as well. Maybe an outside water pump that you see with a big wooden handle for pumping water.Delete
If you were of. Amish/Mennonite upbringing I was wondering how many horses, and days do you think it would take to tow the big EEE down to ArizonaReplyDelete
Seeing as how you're not allowed to drive it
But one good thing I noticed you can sit in the right side or the left side doesn't make no difference. Just as long as you get your red triangle sign
Another good thing, don't need no stinking registration or insurance
Although you might get a slight delay if one of the brothers decides to have a barn raising
You got more wonderful "drive-bys" on your outing - love seeing all your beautiful countryside. Darling pick of the girls in the buggy. Must be quiet to travel behind a floating horse! Kelly's not old, they just like taking her picture :-))ReplyDelete
