Pheebs and I had the ‘big wheels’ rolling this morning first thing. Had been meaning to get the Motorhome out for some exercise for the past couple weeks and with this and that getting in the way we weren’t able to fire up The Big E until this morning. With a few things needing to be picked up in Goderich that is the direction we headed.
MY FRIDAY MORNING ROAD CREW
Always a joy to drive that Motorhome of ours and again I was impressed by it’s overall smooth and quiet ride. Of course thoughts about what this winter holds in store for us popped into my mind and I had to immediately get that train of thought out of my head.
From the Walmart parking lot I walked over to Tim Hortons and grabbed a coffee to go and with that in hand we headed downtown Goderich then to the harbor and beach areas where Pheebs got out for a run. The coast guard cutter CAPE DISCOVERY was in the harbor along with it’s rescue boat doing some practice drills. The boat is built to withstand heavy seas and it can roll right over upside down and right itself again. To see a recent example of this have a look at Marlene’s post entitled, Coast Guard Vessel Roll Over.
HEADING DOWN AROUND THE HAROBOR
THAT’S THE CAPE DISCOVERY AND I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH A FEW YEARS BACK TO HAVE A TOUR OF THAT BOAT
HERE’S US BUMS PARKED AT THE BEACH IN THE ROTARY COVE AREA
With skies beginning to darken to the south I figured we had better head for home just in case it rains. I’m trying to keep that Motorhome clean for as long as I can with the main reason being it is always such a PITA to have to wash it.
CLOUDS ARE BEGINNING TO THICKEN UP
SAW THIS NICE LITTLE ‘ROAD TREK’ ALONG THE WAY AND IT’S OUR FAVORITE COLOR TOO
Haven’t been posting much about what I have been eating this past couple weeks while Kelly’s been away but I can tell you this. Had to pick up two more jars of peanut butter this morning and Thursday night I boiled me up some bacon and eggs complete with onions.
‘HEY DAD I THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED A CORNER BACK THERE’
Thanks for the feedback on that ‘suspect email’ folks. I immediately smashed, crashed, bashed, mashed, and trashed it. I figured any email referring to me as an expert about anything certainly has to be bogus!!
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A student went to his meditation teacher and said, "My meditation is horrible! I feel so distracted, or my legs ache, or I'm constantly falling asleep. It's just horrible!" "It will pass," the teacher said matter-of-factly. A week later, the student came back to his teacher. "My meditation is wonderful! I feel so aware, so peaceful, so alive! It's just wonderful!" "It will pass," the teacher replied matter-of-factly.
