I became a little worried this morning when our clock showed 7:15 a.m. and early bird Kelly wasn’t up yet. Pheebs and I tippy-toed down the hall and tapped on her door just as she was getting up. Said she hadn’t slept well with all the wind and rain in the night. Guess I must have medicated myself right through all of that. I do take half a sleeping pill every night. If I didn’t I would be up about 3 a.m. wandering around like a Zombie
BEGINNING TO SEE A TOUCH OF COLOR ALONG SOME OF THE BUSH LINES
I’M GUESSING THAT IS A CROP OF WINTER WHEAT WHICH WILL BE READY FOR CUTTING LATE NEXT SPRING
Seeings how it was our Canadian Thanksgiving week-end Kelly’s youngest Son Ben and wife Bri decided to host a Thanksgiving dinner today in ?? Kelly thought it would be a good time to see a bunch of her family so she headed off with 3 planned stops in Kitchener, Cambridge, and Hespeler.
It was under a heavy cloud cover Pheebs and I headed out on our morning jaunt. Soon as we cleared the forest I checked my rear view mirror and was happy to see skies clearing out over the lake. Sun splashes soon began appearing and by noon we were under mainly clear blue skies again.
SEAGULLS LIKE FOLLOWING A PLOW TO FEAST ON ALL THE GRUBS AND WORMS TURNED UP
A MODERN DAIRY FARM
WORKING ON THOSE BEAN FIELDS
Our travels first took us over to the Hullett Marsh where we stopped at our favorite spot for a short while. With shotguns destroying an otherwise peaceful Sunday morning we didn’t stay long so off we went. I’m so glad I do my hunting with a quiet camera whereupon there is no pain and suffering and nothing gets hurt!!
ANOTHER FINE DAY IN THE MARSH
AT OUR FAVORITE SPOT IN THE HULLETT MARSH
Noticed a few more hints of Autumn color along some bush lines but things are still pretty much green except for corn fields which are quickly ripening to shades of golden brown. Lots of bean harvesters parked in fields ready to resume the bean harvest this coming week.
ANOTHER GREAT MORNING JEEP RIDE
ANOTHER ONE OF OUR FAVORITE SPOTS AND YEP THAT’S THE PHEEBS UP THERE
‘I SEE A FROG GRANDPA’
‘LOOK THERE’S ANOTHER ONE’……THESE FOLKS STOPPED BY THE POND WHERE I WAS TAKING A FEW PHOTOS
We were home by 11:30 and what a marvelous Autumn day it turned out to be again. Still on the warm side for this time of year with today rounding out in the high 60’s. Transported 3 more frogs to the big pond, took Pheebs for a walk around the trail and raked up a bunch of pine needles. Kelly made it safely home about 8 o’clock.
HMMM, WHAT COULD THAT BE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MILKWEED LEAF
GRASSHOPPER AND A HONEY BEE
Thanks to everyone for the Birthday wishes. I normally don’t say anything and just let the day slide quietly by but for some reason this year I mentioned it in my blog……………….
GREAT BLUE HERON
A big week coming up for Kelly and I and by the end of it we should know where we will be spending our winter. Either right here at home or somewhere in the great American Southwest again. I’m trying to keep it out of my mind and not think about things for right now. It’s like we are in suspended animation hanging in the air waiting to know which way we will be destined to go.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A new bride was a bit embarrassed to be known as a honeymooner. So when she and her husband pulled up to the hotel, she asked him if there was any way that they could make it appear that they had been married a long time. He responded, "Sure. You carry the suitcases!"
Two red heads were flying to Miami from Cleveland. Fifteen minutes into the flight, the captain announced "One of the engines has failed and the flight will be an hour longer. But don't worry we have three engines left". Thirty minutes later, the captain announced "One more engine has failed and the flight will be two hours longer. But don't worry we have two engines left". An hour later the captain announced "One more engine has failed and the flight will be three hours longer. But don't worry we have one engine left". One red head looked at the other the other red head and said "If we lose one more engine, we'll be up here all day"
