I didn’t hear any overnight rain but Kelly did. Thankfully those passing showers ushered in much cooler temperatures and it was a treat to start the day off with a little warmth from the Jeep’s heater rather than a little cold from the A/C unit. Cloudy skies cleared up about mid morning leaving us with a bright sunny day.
SOME BIG FARMS JUST SEEM TO KEEP ON GETTING BIGGER
SO DOES FARM MACHINERY
With our destination being the Goderich Maitland Valley Medical Clinic this morning Pheebs and I were off about 9. No point in getting there too early and wind up at the end of a long line. As it was there were 5 people ahead of me but luckily 15 minutes after getting there I was again on my way after leaving a couple vials of blood. Actually I absolutely dread going there but it’s not because of the blood letting needle. The new addition housing the blood lab is nice but the waiting room is waaaaaaaaaaaay too small and it’s a scary place for me to be. No I don’t have claustrophobia but the chairs are jammed in so tight you practically have to hold the next person to you on your lap. Then horror of horrors they might start talking to you and asking questions…..Hello, what’s your name, where do you live, how old are you and where did you go to school?? Married?? Where do you work?? Any Kids?? No!! Well my wife and I have 15 kids and while I’m going to be here for the next hour sitting on your lap I’ll tell you all about them and if there’s any time left over I’ll tell you all about my life, my favorite sports teams, what church I go to and why plus I know you will really like hearing about my political views. Alrighty then, our first child was born in……………….. ‘Arrgghhhh’!!!!
TURKEY VULTURE HIGH OVERHEAD IN THE LATE AFTERNOON AIR
A quick trip down around the harbor to breath us in some of that fresh Great Lakes air and we were on our way again. One stop at Walmart and headed for home. Passed Kelly going the other way.
THE SAME HOUSE KELLY PICKED UP THOSE TWO FREE CHANDELIERS SHE SCOOPED THIS FELLOW AS WELL
I must have ran another 25 mile Marathon in my sleep last night because I didn’t seem to have much energy going for me today. Tired right from the time I woke up this morning. I’ll have to see where I can get my name taken off the list for those long nightly runs.
OUR SUNBURST LOCUST TREE IS NOW FULLY LEAFED OUT
So what do I like about these following numbers….63, 66, 61 59, 60, and 64?? Well those are our predicted temperatures for the next 6 days and with today’s cooler air and a nice afternoon breeze Pheebs and I were able to make it around our Park’s pine tree trail without any mosquitoes, gnats, blackflies, or any other kind of hot weather annoyances. Even made it back without my shirt sticking to me. For me these are bonus weather days for sure.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Have you ever wondered why foreigners have trouble with the English Language?
There is no egg in the eggplant
No ham in the hamburger
And neither pine nor apple in the pineapple.
English muffins were not invented in England
French fries were not invented in France.
We sometimes take English for granted
But if we examine its paradoxes we find that
Quicksand takes you down slowly
Boxing rings are square
And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
If writers write, how come fingers don't fing.
If the plural of tooth is teeth
Shouldn't the plural of phone booth be phone beeth
If the teacher taught,
Why didn't the preacher praught.
If a vegetarian eats vegetables
What the heck does a humanitarian eat!?
Why do people recite at a play
Yet play at a recital?
Park on driveways and
Drive on parkways
You have to marvel at the unique lunacy
Of a language where a house can burn up as
It burns down
And in which you fill in a form
By filling it out
And a bell is only heard once it goes!
English was invented by people, not computers
And it reflects the creativity of the human race
(Which of course isn't a race at all)
That is why
When the stars are out they are visible
But when the lights are out they are invisible
And why it is that when I wind up my watch
But when I wind up this observation,
