ENGAGE ME IN A MEANINGFUL CONVERSATION AND WE JUST MIGHT END UP BEING GOOD FRIENDS
Had us a very soggy Saturday morning which was fine with me because the heavy cloud cover kept the Sun from cranking the humidity up. Appreciated the cooler air.
Little Boogins and I slipped up to Goderich for our usual beach and harbor run. A routine stop at Walmart for a few things and back home again through the pouring rain. Making a quick dash from the carport to the house we both got soaked. I understand soakiness but Pheebs doesn’t and wasn’t happy about it.
A COUPLE FELLOW RV’ERS PARKED AT THE BEACH AREA THIS MORNING
IT’S NOT OFTEN I SEE PEAR TREES ANYMORE
THE ALGOMA SAULT IS STILL TIED UP AT THE SIFTO SALT MINE DOCK
Although I didn’t mind today’s rain there were many in the area for which they’re day was spoiled I’m sure. It was the annual 53rd Zurich Bean Festival today which is mainly an outdoor event along with a big car show. There would have been a lot of unhappy rain soaked people down Zurich way earlier in the day. Also right here in Bayfield the Horseless Carriage Club of America --- Ontario Chapter folks had a gathering in Clangregor Square this morning and I’m sure they had to endure some of the heaviest rains of the day. I had forgot all about this event which ended at noon and by the time Kelly reminded me it was about 1:30. I zipped into town anyway and managed to catch the last two cars on the square with one of them in the process of leaving. It was drizzling rain so I never got out of the Jeep but managed a few shots from the driver’s seat anyway.
‘DAT BLAME RAIN’!!
‘SAY, ANY OF YOU FELLERS GOT AN UMBRELLA’
THIS OLD TIMER PULLED OUT ABOUT A MINUTE AFTER I GOT THERE
I COULD SEE THEY WERE BUNDLED UP FOR THE RAIN
THEY SOON CAME SPEEDING UP BEHIND ME
I QUICKLY PULLED OVER TO LET THESE SPEEDBALLS GO BY
IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY YOU CAN SEE A BIT OF BLUE SMOKE BEHIND THE CAR……NO THEY’RE NOT PEELING RUBBER, IT’S JUST THE ENGINE SMOKING A BIT
ONLY ONE HORSELESS CARRIAGE LEFT IN THE PARK
WELL ED LET’S ROLL UP OUR SLEEVES AND SEE IF WE CAN GET ER STARTED
‘I KINDA DOUBT IT THOUGH’
‘ALRIGHT BILL LET’S GO OVER TO THE ALBION HOTEL FOR A FEW BEERS AND THINK ABOUT IT’
When the Sum popped out about 3:15 for half an hour both the temperature and humidity shot up. Sure was glad the clouds moved back in again and cooled things down. Kelly’s Motorhome recliner spends the summer in our sunroom but this afternoon I carried it out and put it back in the rig for our upcoming travels.
THAT’S KELLY’S HORTON RECLINER BESIDE THE DOOR
EVEN DOGGY’S STRETCHED OUT IN THE RV
AFTER A DOZEN YEARS TRAVELING WITH US THESE BENCHMARK ATLAS’S WILL BE STAYING HOME THIS TRIP
PICKED ME UP THIS CLOCK AT WALMART THIS MORNING AND INSTALLED IT AT THE TOP OF THE WINDWHIELD WHERE WE CAN BOTH KEEP AN EYE ON THE TIME NOW
BAYFIELD’S WIDE MAIN STREET IS ALWAYS BUSY ON SUMMER WEEK-ENDS
SPOTTED A THIRD HORSELESS CARRIAGE IN DOWNTOWN BAYFIELD
BAYFIELD’S HOBBIT HOUSE ON BAYFIELD TERRACE (STREET)
HEADING BACK HOME I BUZZED DOWN AROUND THE BAYFIELD HARBOR AND SAW ONLY ONE BOAT ON THE LAKE AND IT WAS COMING IN
Four months from this date will be Christmas Day and I suspect it will be our first Christmas home since 2006. Last winter we spent Christmas on the road traveling between Forest City Arkansas and Weatherford Texas. That was quite fine with us. We’re not big Christmas people. In fact we’re not big anniversary or birthday people either. I guess we are a good match for each other. We live our lives on the quiet side (except for my blog) and we figure the less fuss about anything the better. Neither one of us cares for most people gatherings and it’s the reason we have always avoided those so called RV ‘Happy Hours’. Toooooo many long winded talkers going on and on and on and on and on and on about themselves with their hot air stories getting bigger and bigger and bigger each time. Most of these people are nice folks of course but that long windedness is just not for us. Don’t bore me with your stories. Engage me in a meaningful conversation and we just might end up being good friends:))
VERY MUCH MOST BESTEST PALS:))
GROANER’S CORNER:(( There was a Japanese man who went to America for sightseeing. On the last day, he hailed a cab and told the driver to drive to the airport. During the journey, a Honda drove past the taxi. Thereupon, the man leaned out of the window excitedly and yelled, "Honda, very fast! Made in Japan!"After a while, a Toyota sped past the taxi. Again, the Japanese man leaned out of the window and yelled, "Toyota, very fast! Made in Japan!"And then a Mitsubishi sped past the taxi. For the third time, the Japanese leaned out of the window and yelled, "Mitsubishi, very fast! Made in Japan!"The driver was a little angry, but he kept quiet. And this went on for quite a number of cars. Finally, the taxi came to the airport. The fare was US$300.The Japanese exclaimed, "Wah... so expensive!"There upon, the driver yelled back, "Meter, very fast! Made in Japan!"
