THIS MAY ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE A FOREST SOMEWHERE BUT IT’S RIGHT HERE AT HOME NEXT TO OUR BACK YARD
Had my fingers tightly crossed all night that it wouldn’t be raining in the morning and believing in the power of crossed fingers our day dawned sunny and bright. Didn’t want to get the Motorhome all slopped up on wet roads taking it to Clinton. With Kelly and Pheebs following in the Jeep I had the rig at Carter's West End Garage shortly before 8:30. This garage has a good reputation and they did some muffler work on our Class A Damon Challenger years ago as well and did a good job. After dropping off the rig we headed home again. Not knowing how long it would take them to replace two tailpipes I decided to stay home all day just in case they finished it up early. It was late afternoon when the phone rang and we headed back to Clinton to pick up the coach. Two brand spanking new tailpipes securely in place.
AT THE GARAGE THIS MORNING
NEW TAILPIPE PASSENGER SIDE
DRIVER’S SIDE PIPE
Maybe it was because Pheebs and I didn’t get out for our country drive this morning or something but it was one of those days I just couldn’t get myself airborne again. I can remember bits and pieces of a dream I had last night and maybe that added to my slump. I was reminded of a post I wrote a year ago about my thoughts on dreams. It seemed relevant to my mood today so thought I’d repost it…………..’Ever wonder about that other world we all transition to in a matter of seconds every day or several times a day and mostly at night for long periods? You know the one where our minds take us when we are not conscious. When our awake world gives way to our sleep world. What Universe or Planet or virtual state are we instantly transported to and how is it done and why is it done over and over for the whole duration of our lives? We call them dreams and they can come any time our minds are not preoccupied with our conscious world. We sometimes laugh them off and pay little heed but is there something much deeper going on here. I wrote a post about this years ago and today dozing for a few minutes in my recliner I was reminded of that post as my mind once again took me to a place very far away. A different world yet somehow familiar. I see people there, interact with people there. Some are strangers, some are good friends and many times the people in my mind have recently or long ago passed away but there they are and I am somehow one with them again and they with me. There never is a state of animosity with any of these people only a curiosity, a knowing, yet an unknowing, and a kind of confusing understanding. It’s like I’m walking slowly through a fog with people appearing and walking alongside in a helping manner then disappearing once again into the mist. I know I’m not alone experiencing this, it’s a known occurrence with many people but what is it. Is it real, is it imaginary, is it a mind playing tricks, or is there really somewhere else just as real as where we are here in our current conscious states on what we have evolved to call Planet Earth. All religious connotations aside, what is really going on in our minds. What is it we don’t know about ourselves, our lives, our Planet, our Universe. What connections to our minds does this vast secretive Solar System of ours really hold. Are those places we go and those people we see and communicate with in our unconsciousness really the key to this mystery of life? In my opinion there is not a single human being on this entire Planet who knows the answers to any of these questions. Nor has there ever been or probably ever will be. Many will profess to have the answers and know all but I am not one of them and I do not believe all those who say they do. I feel this though…..there is something somewhere for some reason and it is not anything any conscious human mind thinks it knows or has the answers too. And I don’t believe it has anything to do with any of man’s religions around the world as he believes them to be. Whatever it is, I believe it to be beyond the understanding of the human race as we currently understand ourselves’………………….
Wednesday is looking like a wet day so Pheebs and I had better get ourselves out the door in the morning and find us some quiet back roads and magical forests.
THIS IS WHERE I PUT MY DAILY POST TOGETHER AND AS YOU CAN SEE i HAVE THE BBC EARTH CHANNEL ON SHOWING DISTANT GALAXIES
OUR FRONT YARD JUNGLE JUST SEEMS TO KEEP ON GROWING AND GROWING
ALL THE ABOVE PHOTOS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE LILY PADS AND FIRST PICTURE WERE TAKEN TODAY WITH MY SONY RX 100
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A tough looking group of hairy bikers are riding when they see a girl about to jump off a bridge, so they stop. The leader, a big burly man, gets off his bike and says, "What are you doing?" "I'm going to commit suicide," she says. While he doesn’t want to appear insensitive, he also doesn’t want to miss an opportunity, so he asks, "Well, before you jump, why don't you give me a kiss?" She does, and it is a long, deep, lingering kiss. After she's finished, the tough, hairy biker says, "Wow! That was the best kiss I’ve ever had! That's a real talent you’re wasting. You could be famous. Why are you committing suicide?" "My parents don't like me dressing up like a girl…"
