DRIVING MISS DAISY AND MISS PHEEBS TO THE VET CLINIC THIS MORNING
Just an absolutely gorgeous Autumn like morning as we we all piled into the Jeep and headed for the South Huron Veterinary Clinic in Zurich Ontario. Only took a few seconds to take Pheebs tail stitches out and she didn’t flinch one bit. Picked up some medication stuff for her allergies while there too. Good thing Kelly was along because I never could have remembered all the verbal instructions we received regarding the allergy meds. And another good reason Kelly was along…..she had A&W breakfast coupons:))
A THURSDAY MORNING BARN BLOCK QUILT SOMEWHERE SOUTHEAST OF GRAND BEND
From the Zurich Vets we headed East to Exeter. A quick stop at Home Hardware, a great breakfast at A&W, and a ‘Pet Valu’ stop for some dog food. From there it was a leisurely country road drive home with a pleasant leg stretch by a forest stream along the way. Again, what a marvelously beautiful late August morning we had going on.
I LIKE PET VALUE’S ATTITUDE
Bruce finished constructing the handy wooden shelf affair to fit in between the Motorhome’s drivers door and the seat. Perfect. I threw a couple coats of beige paint on it to match the rig’s interior and that camera and coffee holder fits in place snug as a bug. Door can be opened with the holder/shelf attached and can be easily removed from the door by simply lifting up and out. Bruce is always great at engineering and constructing things. I engineered a ball of putty once and made it flat using only my imagination and a big hammer:))
PAINTING UP THE ‘COFFEE, CAMERA, AND SNACKS HOLDER’
ALTHOUGH THE COFFEE-CAMERA HOLDER LOOKS LIKE IT’S FASTENED TO THE DOOR IT’S NOT
A SIMPLE METAL CLAMP HOOKS OVER THE HAND HOLD IN THE DOOR AND HOLDS THE WHOLE WOODEN STRUCTURE SNUG AGAINS THE DOOR
I HAVE SUBSTITUTED A COUPLE PROTEIN ENERGY BARS WHERE MY STACK OF PORTABLE PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICHES WILL GO
AND I STILL HAVE ACCESS TO MY DOOR’S MAP POCKET
CAMERA, COFFEE, AND SNACKS ARE AT MY FINGER TIPS
A bit on the humid side for me this afternoon so spent most of my time inside para-sailing in front of my hurricane fan in an oversized striped shirt. With a tad over 3 weeks before our Maritime departure more things have been slowly filtering into the Motorhome. As any Snowbird knows you can plan all you want but it’s really those last few days before leaving when all the serious packing and loading gets done.
THROUGH A BREAK IN OUR PINE TREES I CAUGHT SITE OF THE MOON WEDNESDAY NIGHT
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Okay boys you just can't win, and here are the reasons why: If you put a woman on a pedestal and try to protect her from the rat race, you're a male chauvinist. If you stay home and do the housework, you're a pansy. If you work too hard, there is never any time for her. If you don't work enough, you're a good-for-nothing bum. If she has a boring repetitive job with low pay, this is exploitation. If you have a boring repetitive job with low pay, you should get off your butt and find something better. If you get a promotion ahead of her, that is favoritism. If she gets a job ahead of you, it's equal opportunity. If you mention how nice she looks, it's sexual harassment. If you keep quiet, it's male indifference. If you cry, you're a wimp. If you don't, you're insensitive. If you make a decision without consulting her, you're a chauvinist. If she makes a decision without consulting you, she's a liberated woman. If you ask her to do something she doesn't enjoy, that's domination. If she asks you, it's a favor. If you like a woman to shave her legs and keep in shape, you're a sexist. If you don't, you're unromantic. If you try to keep yourself in shape, you're vain. If you don't, you're a slob. If you buy her flowers, you're after something. If you don't, you're not thoughtful. If you're proud of your achievements, you're up on yourself. If you don't, you're not ambitious.
“When an escaped prisoner was caught camping out in the woods it was a clear case of criminal in tent.”
Three preachers sat discussing the best positions for prayer, while a telephone repairman worked nearby."Kneeling is definitely best," claimed one."No," another contended. "I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven.""You're both wrong," the third insisted. "The most effective prayer position is lying prostrate, face down on the floor."The repairman could contain himself no longer."Gentlemen," he interrupted, "the best praying I ever did was one day hanging upside down from a telephone pole, smoldering."
