OUR WEEK-END COMPANY HAS COME AND GONE
WE HAD UOURSELVES A REAL FINE DAY GOING FOR US
Kelly’s youngest son Ben with his two sons Darrion and Kai drove over from Hespeler Ontario Saturday and spent the day in Bayfield and on the beach at Deer Park Lodge. Ben met his friend James and his son Evan there. It was early evening when they all came over to our place for a campfire and marshmallows. Had us a good campfire going but it seems there was a slight problem. Apparently the marshmallows were still in Hespeler. No problem though as Kelly rustled up some ice cream bars. Too bad they melted so fast on the ends of the marshmallow sticks:))
KELLY, DARION, BEN, KIE, JAMES, AND EVAN
Unexpected rains rolled in just as it was getting dark so it was hurriedly inside with all of us. James and Evan headed off to Goderich where they had a Motel room for the night while Ben and the boys spent the night in our Motorhome. Rains ended by morning.
KAI GIVES PHEEBS A TUMMY RUB
‘PSSSST, I THINK I KNOW MORE ABOUT GRAMMA’S PHONE THAN SHE DOES’
Sure was different hearing the sounds of children in the house this morning. Living the quiet lifestyle we do if it was an everyday event it would be something to get used to especially for me. Having not had brothers or sisters to grow up with or children of my own running around it’s always quite a noticeable change for me. Now on the other hand a herd of dogs running amok in the house would be like music to my ears:))
NOW THAT IS ONE HAPPY GRAMMA:))
A SMART PHONE PHOTO
‘OOOOPS’ AN ACCIDENTAL SELFIE WITH THE REAR FACING SMART PHONE CAMERA
Our company left around noon today and 5 minutes later there was nothing to be seen of Pheebs and I except for a trail of dust behind us as we Jeeped ourselves over to the sanctity of Huron Counties Hullett Marsh. A nice quiet walk with a few photos along the way.
JEWEL WEED…..I WAS ONCE TOLD BY A DOCTOR TO RUB THIS ON MY BODY WHERE I HAD GOTTEN MYSELF INTO A BAD PATCH OF POISON IVY YEARS AGO
ONE HAD TO BE CAREFUL WHERE ONE STEPPED IN THE LONG WET GRASS
NOT TO WORRY THERE LITTLE LEOPARD FROG I SEE YOU
It’s a quiet time of year for Mother Nature now and there was hardly a sound stirring in the Marsh compared to all the noisy chirping, honking, and chugg-er-ruming of Spring. Autumn is a time of preparation in the animal world as creatures busily prepare for winter’s harsh reality soon to be upon us in a few short months. We did see Canada Geese and frogs today but they were all quietly going about their business. Even the majority of Crickets seemed to be keeping a lid on themselves.
THAT’S QUITE A MOSSMAGATOR OF A MACHINE
THOSE BOXES AT THE CORNER OF A FARMER’S FIELD ARE FOR BEES
Being very careful with my wrist I was able to get a little more of our yard cleaned up from the fallen tree. Everything will look fine again in the Spring when plants begin to grow anew. I did notice though how our gardens are beginning to take on that late in the season hard luck. Gone now is that new green and fresh lush look of May and June.
MORE SIGNS OF AUTUMN’S APPROACH EACH DAY AS SUGGESTED BY THIS HEAVILY LADEN APPLE TREE……COULD IT BE THE SIGN OF A LONG COLD HARSH WINTER
DID YOU NOTICE THE BUTTERFLY
On our evening forest walk the only thing Pheebs and heard were the chirpings of Crickets. The air was dead calm as if Nature was holding it’s breath. Not a leaf rustled, not a bird stirred. I was saddened to see more of our beautiful trail has been destroyed. More young trees mashed and bent laying across the path where heavy equipment has bulled and smashed it’s way through dragging out pine tree logs. Soon our magically tunneled canopy of tall pine trees and the trail I have been keeping trimmed for nearly 15 years will no longer be as we remembered it.
Just a few days ago we again talked of selling our place but with the price of real estate now through the stratosphere in our area finding another place is pretty much hopeless. We waited too long and missed the boat.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A police officer pulls over this guy who's been weaving in and out of the lanes. He goes up to the guy's window and says, "Sir, I need you to blow into this breathalyzer tube." The man says, "Sorry, officer, I can't do that. I am an asthmatic. If I do that, I'll have a really bad asthma attack." "Okay, fine. I need you to come down to the station to give a blood sample." "I can't do that either. I am a hemophiliac. If I do that,I'll bleed to death." "Well, then, we need a urine sample." "I'm sorry, officer, I can't do that either. I am also a diabetic. If I do that, I'll get really low blood sugar." "All right, then I need you to come out here and walk this white line." "I can't do that, officer." "Why not?" "Because I'm drunk."
