PHEEBS ALWAYS LOOKS SO REGAL AND WISE AS SHE SITS UPRIGHT IN THE JEEP’S PASSENGER SEAT LOOKING STRAIGHT AHEAD WHILE WE TRAVEL ON DOWN THE ROAD AND WHEN SHE LOOKS OVER AT ME I CAN SEE A DEEP SOUL IN THIS LITTLE DOG
There were many times in my working life that I hated Monday mornings just as much as many others out there still working but it’s different now and for some reason I look forward to Monday mornings. Monday morning’s are kind of a re-set, a steadiness if you will. Sort of a back to normal after the week-end. Things just seem sorta normal again.
WITH PREVAILING WINDS GENERALLY FROM THE WEST-NORTH-WEST IT’S ALWAYS ENCOURAGING TO SEE SKIES CLEARING OUT OVER THE LAKE
THAT PARTIAL BOAT HULL HAS BEEN GROUNDED OFF BAYFIELD’S BEACH FOR JUST ABOUT AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER
I had read in Bayfield’s own newspaper The Village Breeze a few days ago that parts of an old shipwreck have washed up on Bayfield’s shore line. Could It Be The Schooner Malta It’s wooden remains are believed to be that from the old schooner, Malta. Pheebs and I went down a short steep embankment along the shoreline to see if we could find it. The lake was rough with large waves breaking on the shore but a few hundred yards south of where we were I could see parts of the wreck. We will have to come back another day when the lake is calm and walk down there for a closer look.
‘THAR SHE BLOWS’….. IT IS BELIEVED THAT IS PART OF THE SCHOONER MALTA
WATER’S TOO ROUGH TO GET ANY CLOSER AND SEE THE TIMBERS LYING FLAT IN THE SAND
Again it was a short Jeep ride for us but we did manage to find a few photos. How nice to drive along slow with our front windows down watching patches of sun traveling over farmer’s fields highlighting whatever colors there may be left this last week of November.
My son Sean’s song, ‘The Return’ debuted with a great accompying video today. Sean wrote this song, did the music arrangement and sings it. No, that is not Sean in the video.
THERE ARE STILL FARMERS WORKNG AWAY AT GETTING THEIR CORN CROP IN
OTHER FARMERS HAVE THE CROP IN AND ARE ALREADY PLOWING UP THE FIELD FOR NEXT SPRING
BEHIND THOSE TREES STANDS A VERY GHOSTLY OLD HOUSE IN VARNA ONTARIO
Roads were dry, no chance of rain and sun was out so figured it was a good day to jump in the Motorhome and take it for a run up to Goderich and back. Fired it up and all three of us piled in and off we went. Every time I drive the Big EEE it impresses me with it’s smooth quiet ride and powerful 8.1 Chevy engine. We first made our way to A&W armed with a couple expired breakfast coupons. The folks there are always good about expired coupons and we had ourseves a mess of bacon and eggs with coffee. From there it was over to the Solo gas bar in Goderich’s south end to top up both the gas and propane tanks. If the rig ends up sitting for the winter we wanted those tanks full. From the gas bar it was home again and a good time was had by all.
HI-HO HI-HO IT’S OFF TO GODERICH WE GO
ALWAYS LOTS OF ROOM TO PARK AT A&W
NOW THERE’S A HAPPY LITTLE BARKING DOG
THAT GAS STATION FELLOW ALWAYS GIVES PHEEBS A TREET WHEN WE COME IN WITH THE JEEP SO LITTLE MISS SMARTY PANTS KNOWS THAT SO SHE’S BUGGING THE GUY…’WHERE’S MY TREAT’
HE HAD TO TURN AROUND AND TELL HER TO BE PATIENT
I THINK KELLY’S DREAMING ABOUT SOME WARM BORREGO SPRINGS CALIFORNIA SUNSHINE
While driving along in the Motorhome today with bright sunny skies overhead, dry roads and no snow in the fields it was easy to let my mind wander ahead a month or two and imagine ourselves heading for the sunny south. Luckily I caught myself, dialed my thinking back and put those thoughts out of my mind………………
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Just before Christmas, an honest politician, a generous lawyer and Santa Claus were riding in the elevator of a very posh hotel. Just before the doors opened they all noticed a $20 bill lying on the floor. Which one picked it up? Santa of course, because the other two don't exist!

A: 220! One to write a speech about how good it will be when the bulb is actually changed, one to write a speech about why the other candidates can't even spell "lightbulbe", eighteen to find out what the other candidates did when the lightbulb failed, and another two hundred to find out what the other candidate's families think about lightbulbs, bulbs, pear-shaped objects, light in general, any form of energy.
