ALTHOUGH SPRING IS OFFICIALLY UPON US WINTER’S BEAUTY STILL PREVAILS
My good long time friend and neighbor Richard and I picked right up where we left off last December on our first bi-monthly country roads coffee tour of 2018. My turn to drive and we covered our usual gamut of topics with some new stuff thrown in along the way. Always interesting and always inspiring. Our travels today took us down through Grand Bend and as far south as Park Hill. Even managed to hit us a few roads neither one of us had ever been on before. Always nice to see something new.
EVEN SPOTTED US A BARN CLOCK QUILT THIS MORNING AND NOTICE ALL THE COWS LINED UP HAVING BREAKFAST
TWO SMALL BARN BLOCKS
WITH OUR DAYTIME TEMPS ABOVE FREEZING AND NIGHT TIME TEMPS BELOW FREEZING I KNEW IT WAS PERFECT MAPLE SYRUP WEATHER AND SURE ENOUGH WE SPOTTED THSE SAP PAILS ALONG SIDE THE ROAD
IF YOU LOOK CLOSE YOU CAN SEE THE PAILS ARE NEARLY HALF FULL OF SAP
A BIT OF WORK GOING ON IN OUR PARK AS THIS MACHINE CLEANS OUT SOME SLUDGE AND PLANT GROWTH AT ONE END OF THE PARK’S POND WEDNESDAY MORNING
OUR HANDYMAN FRIEND BRUCE GAVE US THIS WOODEN AUDUBON SQUIRREL FEEDER AND WE PUT IT TO QUICK USE WITH A CORN COB STUCK ON IT
KELLY PUT SOME GOBS OF PEANUT BUTTER ON THIS CORN COB
SQUIRRELS ARE LIKING THE PEANUT BETTER BETTER THAN THE CORN
In Wednesday’s post about Stew’s medical update I had forgot to mention his last name and it is Hilts. Stewart Hilts. Hang in there Stew we’re all rooting for you out here.

REMAINING PHOTOS WERE ALSO TAKEN OVER THE PAST WEEK

HOPE THESE HONEY BEES CLUSTERED CLOSE TOGETHER AND HAD THEMSELVES A SURVIVABLE WINTER
SOME AREA FIELDS ARE ALREADY BARE OF SNOW WHILE SOME OTHERS NOT SO MUCH
DESPITE THE TIME OF YEAR AT FIRST GLANCE I THOUGHT THIS WAS A LARGE SNAPPING TURTLE AT BOTTOM RIGHT BUT ON CLOSER INSPECTION I SAW IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE
I like falling asleep every night simply because I look forward to all the bizarre places I go and things i get involved with while I’m sleeping. I’m talking about dreams of course and although I certainly can’t remember everything in the morning I do have fleeting flashbacks of where I have been. I have not had one of my many fabulous flying dreams for quite awhile and often times now my biggest dream dilemma is simply moving myself physically from one point to another. Some of my dreams are repetitious where I am alone and seeking someone. I don’t always know who I am looking for but it always seems my finding them is of great importance. I sure wish there was a way of recording dreams to play back in the morning. Or do I…….??
WITH A COUPE PLUS 40F DAYS COMING UP I’M HOPING A LOT OF THIS SNOW WILL GO
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A judge was punishing three men because they had committed a crime. Their sentence was to spend a few years in the desert. The judge said that they could each take one thing with them. The first guy decides to take an umbrella, so that he can have shade whenever he wants. The second guy decides to take a water bottle so that he won't get thirsty. Finally, the third guy decides to take a car door. The judge asked, "Why in the world would you want to take a car door?" The man replied, "If it gets too hot, I can roll down the window."
Here’s A Few Signs You Are Too Old To Be Out Trick Or Treating Halloween Night::
- You get winded from knocking on the door.
- You have to have another kid chew the candy for you.
- You ask for high fiber candy only.
- When someone drops a candy bar in your bag, you lose your balance and fall over.
- People say, 'Great Keith Richards mask!' and you're not wearing a mask.
- When the door opens you yell, 'Trick or...' and can't remember the rest.
- By the end of the night, you have a bag full of restraining orders.
- You have to carefully choose a costume that won't dislodge your hairpiece.
- You're the only Power Ranger in the neighborhood with a walker.
It's frustrating when you know all the answers, but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
