REALLY LIKED THE LOOKS OF THIS PERSON’S BACK YARD IN GODERICH THIS MORNING
Well I couldn’t think of any different words and I knew if I tried to learn a few new ones I’d forget them anyway so I’m back tonight with more of my same old words and stuff.
THOUGHT FOR SURE I WAS GOING TO HAVE MYSELF ‘A BIG RANT’ ABOUT BICYCLISTS TONIGHT BUT I COOLED OFF BY THE TIME I GOT HOME
CORN’S GOLDEN TASSLES STAND OUT AGAINST A STORMY SKY
Okay, let me see now...…..how can I start this post off by using most of my usual repetitive words. Let's get hot and humid out of the way first. In my world the weather is back in the dumpster again and the last couple days I've spent the majority of my time in the house close to my fans and A/C. But here’s a couple bright spots for the coming week. Two days with highs of 68:)) Summer's are getting hotter with humidity levels growing. I am finding it both an increasing mental and physical challenge. Now having said that I think being trapped inside by winter's cold is still worse than being trapped inside by summer's heat. At least in summer, roads are safely driveable and one can get out and about and travel around without fear of snow and ice plus crippling winter storms. No enchantingly easy forest walks in wintertime either.
OUR FRONT YARD BUTTERFLY BUSH HAS BEEN LIVING UP TO IT’S NAME LATELY
HOPING TO GET A FEW MORE BIRD FEEDERS UP BEFORE WINTER
Would you believe we never ever had air conditioning until about 7 years ago. Never had A/C in my Stratford apartment which was the top floor of a house and I was there 4 years. We never had A/C in the old farm house near Fullarton Ontario and we spent 7 years there. And we never had A/C where we are now for the first 8 years we were here. And believe it or not but we didn’t even have A/C in our Jeep Wrangler all the time we had it which was about 4 years. Nosireeeee, nobody’s ever gonna convince me that our summer’s are not getting hotter!!!!!!
We are not late morning risers by any means but with 6:45 showing on the clock it was obvious we had both slept in. Day's temperatures were already rising and the air was sticky. Pheebs and I did take a spin through Goderich then slipped east out of town for a short walk. It was already too hot and we were back to the Jeep in ten minutes. My skin felt like someone had put a light coating of honey on me. With the Jeep’s A/C on max we headed home.
DUE TO THE RISING HEAT AND HUMIDITY IT WAS A SHORT WALK FOR US EARLIER TODAY
FOLIAGE WAS KINDA THICK ON PARTS OF THE TRAIL BUT I THINK I CAUGHT A GLIMPSE OF A RHINOSAUCEROUS CHASING A HIPPOPOTAMOOSE
Hard to believe this is Labor Day week-end already. Wasn’t it just two weeks ago we had the big May 24th week-end?? I think it was the fastest summer ever. Halloween must be right round the corner.
Amazingly I actually ‘remembered’ to start up the Motorhome this morning to see if the Bayfield Garage efforts at getting our dash A/C working was successful. Happy to say it was and we now have ice cubes flying out of the rig’s vents again. With less than two weeks to our departure date the Motorhome is taking up more of our thoughts. When loading It’s much easier thinking ahead 6 weeks rather than 6 months and that seems quite acceptable to both of us now at this latter RV stage of ours. Whether we’ll make a dash for warmer weather in January remains to be seen. Just wished the great American Southwest wasn’t so darn far but who knows, after freezing our tails off and sliding around on icy roads here we might just say ‘the hell with it’ and take off. My heart has always been in the southwest, still is, and always will be. I have yet to see another part of America where I would rather be in the winter.
RECENT RAINS HAVE SPIKED MUSHROOM GROWTH IN AREA FORESTS
I think we still have one more RV left in our future but it won’t be this year. Maybe not even next year but knowing how our travel priorities are changing we have to be prepared to make those changes if we hope to still do a bit of RVing. The long trips are nearly at an end for us but we are hopeful of more smaller trips in the future and that includes simple day trips. Two and three day jaunts or maybe a couple weeks here and there. Although not actively looking for a smaller RV at the moment we are remaining aware of what’s out there that would best suit us at some point. Yes we’ve been down that tricky ‘downsizing’ road before and it didn’t work out very well but life is changing for us now both mentally and physically and we both unfortunately have to go with the realities of those aging changes.
YES WE ARE STILL KEEPING ABREAST WITH WHAT’S OUT THERE IN THE WAY OF SMALLER RV’S
AT GODERICH’S ROTARY COVE THIS MORNING
The Bayfield Garage didn’t call us back Friday with a price quote on the manifold repair job so guess I’ll have to pop in there Tuesday morning. Gotta get that done before we leave or we don’t leave until it’s done.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( If vegetarians eat vegetables, what do humanitarians eat?
Don`t think that you`re thinking. If you think that you're thinking you only think that you're thinking.
When I erase a word with a pencil, where does it go?
If a train station is where a train stops, what is a workstation?
Why is it, when a door is open it's ajar, but when a jar is open, it's not adoor?

Employment application blanks always ask who is to be notified in case of an emergency. Wouldn’t a good response be to write . . . A Good Doctor!

Henry goes to confession and says, "Bless me Father, for I have sinned. Last night I was with seven different women. "The priest says, "Take seven lemons, squeeze them into a glass and drink the juice without pausing." "Will that cleanse me of my sins, Father?" "No," replies the priest. "But it'll wipe that silly grin off your face."
Parked our hefty Georgetown bus somewhere between Saskatchewan and Manitoba on our way home this spring and this lovely Unity Leisure Travel Van drove in beside us. I lusted after the sheer simplicity of it. Looked it up online and saw that it has a murphy bed!! Be still my heart! I still lust after this motorhome.... wish we could afford it, I think our older age would thank us!ReplyDelete
We have friends who purchased a Travel Leisure Unity. Really nice and the Murphy bed is great for space saving. They bought new which I would never do but maybe they are affordable if purchased used?Delete
Great photos tonight and enjoyed your words.ReplyDelete
There is a lot of very nice smaller rv's you just need to find the right one. And one of these days it will be right there in front of you.ReplyDelete
The southwest is the place we want to be in the winter as well, this year we taking the long way there but will still enjoy most of our winter somewhere out there.
You better not complain about cyclist on the road Al.ReplyDelete
