MONICA’S MANY MAGNIFICENT MAGNOLIA BLOSSOMS
What an absolutely beautiful Spring day we had. How nice it is when all weather elements are in perfect harmony. My turn to drive this morning so Richard and I had ourselves another great country coffee tour heading south along highway 21 between Goderich and Bayfield turning into half a dozen roads leading about a mile to Lake Huron. At the end of each road along the lake are cottages and houses atop bluffs overlooking the lake. Always interesting to see the many housing styles whether old or new, rich or poor. Of course anyone with lake front property certainly can’t be poor. Our semi-monthly drives generally last about two and a half hours and this morning was no exception. We were back shortly after 11.
ON OUR WAY TO GODERICH THIS MORNING RICHARD SPOTTED SOMETHING IN A FIELD SO I STOPPED AND BACKED UP….NEITHER ONE OF US COULD TELL FOR CERTAIN WHAT IT WAS BUT LATER TODAY WHEN I ENLARGED THE PHOTOS I SAW IT WAS A SNOWY OWL
I IMAGINE THERE HAVE BEEN MANY A BEAUTIFUL SUNSET WATCHED FROM THESE LOCATIONS

Didn't take me long to slip into some work clothes and get myself back to cleaning and waxing the Motorhome. Finished up about a third of the coach starting from the front passenger side working my way towards the back. By 1:30 temperatures were coming up to the point where I called it a day and retreated inside to cool off by my fan. I wisely learned a long time ago not to push myself in hot weather anymore.

Here in Canada we celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday every third week-end in May. Commonly known as the ‘two-four’ week-end it unofficially kicks off the summer season and here in our area along the shores of Lake Huron things get very busy as in-landers flock to the lake. Beaches, boats, cottage owners, party goers, it all comes together for this week-ends celebrations. We have learned over the years to stay close to home and off the roads. Any groceries we need we make sure to pick up a few days before all the week-enders roll in. Of course that traffic problem doesn't apply to area country roads so Pheebs and I are always cleared to head out any time we want and of course our Five Seasons Park is far enough from the highway and beaches that we never really notice much of a difference in our countryside pine forest area anyway……………………….

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you." The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?" The boy takes the quarters and leaves. "What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!" Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. "Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?" The boy licked his cone and replied, "Because the day I take the dollar, the game is over!"
