A LOT OF MONARCH BUTTERFLIES IN THE AIR RIGHT NOW AND I HAVE SEEN MORE MONARCHS THIS SUMMER THAN THE LAST TWO OR THREE SUMMERS COMBINED
Oh my what a gloomy wet morning we had and it all started about 3 a.m. with the gnashing and crashing of thunder and lightning in the night sky. Thought a couple of those thunder cracks were going to shatter our windows for sure.
OUR MORNING OUTING UNDER STORMY SKIES
DID YOU NOTICE THE PHEEBS??
WE LOVE OUR QUIET COUNTRY ROADS
Rains let up along enough for Pheebs and I to make our country road rounds southeast of Bayfield but with little enthusiasm going for myself I never even stopped into town for a coffee to go. We did manage to eat a few of our our cracker and dog biscuit snacks along the way though. Despite a heat advisory for today it remained surprisingly cool this morning. Bonus. We were back home before 10 whereupon I crashed in my recliner and gladly stayed there for much of what was left of the wet rainy morning.
Until this summer the nosiest thing in our neighborhood was the neighbors truck but this summer even that truck takes a back seat to the tractors, dump trucks, tree trimmers, and cement trucks. Pick-up trucks back and forth back and forth. Dump trucks loaded with gravel and an 18 wheeler logging truck. Bobcats and front end loaders. Oh ya, then there is the 300 mph golf cart obviously driven by a younger worker. All three new neighbors around the corner have small white cars so it looks like a herd of young white albino Elephants constantly rumbling past. Back and forth they go all day long it seems. For years our quiet little neighborhood corner was to our liking. Not so much anymore. Our quaint little Park is suddenly becoming populated. I think our good friends and neighbors Gayle and Richard have the right idea. They will soon be leaving the Park for the last time in search of quieter pastures……………
NICE TO SEE THE NEW COLORFUL SAILS (BLADES) ON THIS WORKABLE AUTHENTIC DUTCH WINDMILL LESS THAN A MILE DOWN THE ROAD FROM OUR PARK

A three-year-old boy went with his dad to see a litter of kittens. On returning home, he breathlessly informed his mother, 'There were 2 boy kittens and 2 girl kittens.' 'How did you know?' his mother asked. 'Daddy picked them up and looked underneath,' he replied. 'I think it's printed on the bottom.'
