I WOKE UP LIKE A GRUMPY OLD BEAR THIS MORNING

DSC_0012

I don’t know why it is but it just is and it was the way it was this morning when I woke up feeling like a grumpy old Bear about 6 minutes out of hibernation.  I’ve written about this a few times before and I still don’t have any perfectly good logical reason why this occurs sometimes.  It just does and it pretty much remained with me for the rest of day.

OUR MORNING GLORIES ARE FINALLY BLOOMING

Clear sunny skies as Pheebs and I took our usual drive to Goderich and back.  We were home before 10 and I was able to get some yard maintenance done before the heat built up.  Must be due to our rainy Spring that Mosquitos are so bad this year.  Seems every time I go out my arms are swinging like a windmill in a force 9 hurricane!!

Seeings how our old coffee pot was gurgling and struggling to make a pot of morning coffee in less than 3 days Kelly opted for a new Braun which was delivered by Fed-Ex a few days ago.  She had it figured out pretty quick but had a hard time setting the clock timer on it.  Try as she did she could not get the 10:28 time to change.  Anybody know why yet:))  Yep, if you have had this happen to you I can see the smile on your face right from here.  She finally realized she had not taken the plastic 10:68 sticker off the digital clock face.  It is good for me to see these kind of things happen to other people:))))))

‘SSSHHHHH’….A PAIR OF WRENS HAVE A NEST IN THAT RED GOURD ON THE RIGHT

Ever had your ‘socks blessed off’?  Fellow friend and RV Blogger Betty did.  Betty’s husband Joe passed away 9 months ago but she is still holding things together.  Some days better than others.  We met Betty and Joe at the first Bloggerfest a few years ago in Quartzsite Arizona.  The Journey Continues.  And don’t forget about our friends and RV Bloggers Merikay and Craig who still have not yet some how managed to get themselves totally lost in that big place called Alaska.

Kelly’s daughter Sabra with her husband Derek and two boys Keenan and Langdon rolled in about 6:30.  They had arrived in the area earlier but spent the day on Grand Bend’s beach.

The beach gang quickly changed clothes in the Motorhome and along with Kelly all headed off to THE DOCKS for supper.  I stayed home with Pheebs.  Any time I can get out of having to go where there are crowds of noisy people I do so.  And that includes packed eateries on week-ends for sure.  I rustled up Pheebs and I some chicken noodle soup and toast.  We was happy guys:))

GROANER’S CORNER:((  Jacob, age 92, and Rebecca, age 89, living in Florida, are all excited about their decision to get married. They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding, and on the way they pass a drugstore. Jacob suggests they go in.
Jacob addresses the man behind the counter: Are you the owner? The pharmacist answers, Yes.
Jacob: Were about to get married. Do you sell heart medication? Pharmacist: Of course we do.
Jacob: How about medicine for circulation?
Pharmacist: All kinds.  Jacob: Medicine for rheumatism and scoliosis?  Pharmacist: Definitely.  Jacob: Medicine for memory problems, arthritis, jaundice?
Pharmacist: Yes, a large variety. The works.
Jacob: What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antidotes for Parkinsons disease?
Pharmacist: Absolutely.  Jacob: You sell wheelchairs and walkers?  Pharmacist: All speeds and sizes.  Jacob: Okay then we would like to use this store as our Bridal Registry.

A gentleman entered a busy florist shop that displayed a large sign that read "Say It With Flowers."   "Wrap up one rose," he told the florist. "Only one?" the florist asked.   "Just one," the customer replied. "I'm a man of few words."

“Quasimodo bought a Ford Focus. It became known as the hatchback of Notre Dame.”

A woman answered her front door and found Little Johnny and Billy holding a list. "Lady," Johnny explained, "we are on a scavenger hunt, and we still need three grains of wheat, a pork chop bone and a piece of used carbon paper to earn a dollar." "Wow," the woman replied. "Who sent you on such a challenging hunt?" "Our baby-sitter's boyfriend."

  4. We saw those boats go by us here at Algonac State Park. That big frog pic looks like that frog had some intestinal trouble and pooped out that orange flower. I had a chuckle out of that.
