SUNSET AT DEER PARK LODGE
Weather folks said our earlier morning cloudy skies were the northern edge of Irma. By noon we were under clear sunny skies again but the miserable humidity is creeping back in. Wrist was too sore to take many photos so Pheebs and I simply plodded along enjoying the scenery. Back home I couldn’t do much of anything so it was just a light low key puttering day for me. However I was encouraged to see Kelly doing some ‘pre-travel stuff’ in the Motorhome and that helped pick up my day. I’ve been a little snarly with myself over this stupid wrist problem!!
LOOKS LIKE ‘BOBSY TWINS’ COMBINES AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE CROP IS OR WAS
As Pheebs and I make our way around the countryside in the mornings I am seeing more and more barn quilts appearing on barns, houses, and driving sheds, etc. Here is a Huron County website with all the counties barn quilts, their locations, and information about them and what they mean. HURON COUNTIES BARN QUILT TRAIL. Looking over this site I recognize some that I have already taken photos of. After reading the article I decided to group all my barn quilts into a photo album and you can now find them on my side bar under ‘PHOTO ALBUMS’ entitled BARN BLOCK QUILTS

Typing is bothering my wrist so it’s a shorter post tonight…………………….
GROANER’S CORNER:(( During a recent power outage my PC, Laptop, TV, DVD, IPAD, and a new surround sound system were all shut down. Also, my cell phone battery was dead. To make matters worse it was raining and I couldn't play golf.
So I go to the kitchen to make coffee, OOPS, the coffee maker requires power, so I sit down and talked to my wife for a couple of hours.
You know, she seems like a nice person.
- A hair raising experience sounds pretty good to a bald guy.
- You had a zero gravity experience??? No weigh.
Every morning, one of the secretaries in an office opened the newspaper and read everyone's horoscope aloud. "Gwen," said the boss finally, "you seem to be a normal, level headed person. Do you really believe in astrology?" "Of course not. You know how skeptical we Capricorns are."
Rome is where the heart is!
Gotta love those barn quilts. sure hope your wrist gets better soon !ReplyDelete
Hi Al, don't know if anyone has suggested a wrist brace. It will give you protection while it is healing. Hope it's better soon. Love the quilt blocks, thanks for sharing. BeckiReplyDelete
Need to give that wrist a long rest until it is happy again. I was amazed you were doing yard work and shingles with a sore wrist. Hope you can stay entertained by showing us pics taken with your smart phone, light and can be used by left hand.ReplyDelete
Thanks Al for the Barn Quilt info. First noticed them around London a few years ago and have always wondered what they represented. Very interesting way of telling a stories of history, community, family or any thing you can think of.ReplyDelete
That's a lot of barn quilts for you to go and find! Some pretty large ones too. Your album didn't come up for me though.ReplyDelete
When I lived up in the northeast, I used to see those barn quilts. Don't ever remember seeing one down here in east Texas.ReplyDelete
Tillamook, Oregon has a large quilt square trail that includes businesses in town, country barns and historic locales. It's a fun way to learn the area. You definitely need to rest that wrist.ReplyDelete
