STOPPED AT A TRAFFIC LIGHT IN GODERICH THIS MORNING I MANAGED TO GRAB THIS PHOTO OUT THE PASSENGER SIDE WINDOW
On behalf of the many thousands of people who suffered through our recent heat and miserable humidity spell I sincerely extend many heartfelt thanks to the great weather Gods for returning us to refreshingly cooler and more civilized seasonal temperatures today. How nice to be actively outside again and feeling comfortable about it. Just took Pheebs for a walk and I didn’t come back with my shirt sticking to me. And that deserves another big ‘Yahooie Louie’ for sure:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
DRIVING ALONG GODERICH’S LAKESHORE THIS MORNING I SPOTTED THIS FELLOW AND THROUGHT, ‘WHAT THE HECK’!!
I PULLED IN DOWN THE ROAD A BIT AND DECIDED TO SEE WHAT THIS MAN AND HIS BALLOON WERE UP TO
HE SEEMED RATHER INTENT ON WHAT HE WAS DOING AND I COULD HEAR HIM TALKING TO SOMEONE ALTHOUGH NO ONE ELSE WAS THERE
IT WAS WINDY AND THAT BALLOON WAS REALLY SNAPPING AROUND ONCE HE STARTED TO PLAY THE LINE OUT
OOPS HE SPOTTED ME AND OH SO THAT’S WHO HE HAS BEEN TALKING TO
WITH THE BALLOON AT ONE END OF THE LINE AND A MYSTERY BOX AT THE OTHER HE HEADS FOR THE BEACH AREA CLEAR OF THE LAMP POSTS AND TREES
“CAN YA HEAR ME NOW I’M ABOUT READY TO LET ER GO’
HE RELEASES THE BALLOON
THE BALLOON QUICKLY GAINS ALTITUDE AND SOARS OFF OVER LAND HEADING IN A SOUTHEASTERLY DIRECTION
‘BYE BYE BALLOON AND I LOVE YOU TOO’
Did you notice I didn’t have a single photo of a cow, a piece of farm machinery, or a field of crops anywhere in my entire post. Who said miracles can’t happen……………….:))
GROANER’S CORNER:(( An Indian chief had three wives, each of whom was pregnant. The first gave birth to a boy. The chief was so elated he built her a teepee made of deer hide. A few days later, the second gave birth, also to a boy. The chief was very happy. He built her a teepee made of antelope hide. The third wife gave birth a few days later, but the chief kept the details a secret. He built this one a two story teepee, made out of a hippopotamus hide. The chief then challenged the tribe to guess what had occurred. Many tried, unsuccessfully. Finally, one young brave declared that the third wife had given birth to twin boys. "Correct," said the chief. "How did you figure it out?" The warrior answered, "It's elementary. The value of the squaw of the hippopotamus is equal to the sons of the squaws of the other two hides."
Stop dragon your feet and get to work.

Thanks for thanking the weather gods on our behalf. Interesting to know where that balloon is headed, and what's in the box!ReplyDelete
Tonight's photo of Pheebs is absolutely precious. What a sweetie.ReplyDelete
The balloon looks like a weather balloon. The National Weather Service on the compound where I worked used to release similar balloons.ReplyDelete
