ANOTHER MOODY CLOUD DAY
Can you imagine our ‘huge surprise’ when the phone rang early this afternoon and it was London’s St. Josephs Hospital calling with an appointment date of December 5th for a consultation meeting with a Doctor Hussain about Kelly’s upcoming endoscopy bi-opsy procedure. She will find out at that time when the procedure will be done. I sure was wrong in guessing we wouldn’t get a call for a week or two. Say, ya don’t suppose the Canadian Medical Board is reading my blog do ya………………………..:))
ON THE WAY TO GODERICH I SPOTTED THESE EARLY MORNING WORKERS PUTTING STEEL ON A NEW BARN ROOF……BRRRRR!!
HEADING OUT FOR A DAY’S WORK IN THE FIELDS
With a cold damp windy rain upon us Pheebs and I slipped up to Goderich again and followed our usual route through the town and down around the harbor and beach areas.
THE BULK CARRIER HELENA G WAS STILL IN PORT BUT HAD BEEN MOVED BACK A BIT SO I WAS ABLE TO GET A FEW MORE PICS….THE CAPTAIN, OFFICERS, AND CREW WOULD ALL LIVE, EAT, AND SLEEP IN THAT WHITE STERN SUPERSTRUCTURE
THOSE LARGE RAISED HATCH COVERS MUST WEIGH TONS
YOU CAN TELL IT WAS A COLD WINDY DAY BY THE WAY THE DECK CREW GUYS ARE DRESSED
AS WELL AS PROBABLY LIFTING THE HEAVY HATCH COVERS THOSE 4 TALL GRAY CRANES LOAD AND OFF-LOAD CARGO INTO THE DEEP HOLDS OF THE SHIP
A JEEP AND A SAILBOAT, WHAT MORE COULD A FELLA WANT EH
Although not overly inspired we decided to take a longer route home and in doing so found us a couple more ‘Barn Quilts’ west of Ben Miller. Had to have the Jeep’s heater on from the time we left home until the time we arrived home about an hour and a half after we left. Guess we’ll just have to get used to that now.
‘HEY DAD I TOT I TA A PUDDY TAT’
Huffed and puffed and pulled our heavy utility trailer back out of the carport where I had slugged it in just a few days ago. With our recent change in travel plans meaning we will be here in the upcoming cold snow and ice days I wanted to be able to park the Jeep in the carport and save myself a lot of unnecessary scraping of ice and snow off the Jeep. We still have more stuff to unpack from the Motorhome but it’s too cold and wet right now to do that.
BACK OF A BUILDING ON THE BEN MILLER INN COMPLEX
Couldn’t help but think this morning as Pheebs and I half heartedly putted our way through the increasingly drab countryside, ‘this is going to be a real challenge for me to keep my blog going and not become discouraged’. What am I going to write about and take photos of without becoming even more repetitious than I already am. Of course I am mainly thinking about the cold, dull, and drab month of November ahead when the entire landscape sits in a perpetual shade of depressing gray. Decembers snow and frequent sunnier days is different and from a photography point of view the landscape is way more photogenic. That part I look forward to as a welcome change. Just gotta get myself through this upcoming month of cold and gray depressive November.
Kelly, not one to sit back and wait for things to happen called her University Hospital Doctor’s secretary this afternoon and asked her to fax the Tumor Board’s report to her Bayfield General Practitioner and email a copy of it to her here at home. She also asked if her cat scan could be moved up a week and the secretary (Barb) said she would talk to Dr. Teriyaki about that. And yes, Kelly is on a first name basis with the Doctor’s secretary so she does have a foot in the door:))
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A guy goes into a bar. He's sitting on the stool, enjoying his drink when he hears, "You look great!" He looks around - there's nobody near him. He hears the voice again, "No really, you look terrific." The guy looks around again. Nobody. He hears, "Is that a new shirt or something? Because you are absolutely glowing!" He then realizes that the voice is coming from a dish of nuts on the bar. "Hey," the guy calls to the bartender, "What's with the nuts?" "Oh," the bartender answers, "They're complimentary."
Kids have a greater need for speed than classroom computers can deliver. Impatient to turn in his term paper, one restless student kept clicking the 'Print' command. The printer started to churn out copy after copy of the kid’s ten-page report. The topic? 'Save Our Trees.'
Q. Why is it so hard for women to find men that are sensitive, caring, and good-looking?
A. Because those men already have boyfriends.
