FIRST LIGHT DUSTING OF SNOW AT OUR HOUSE
It was 8:30 a.m. and it was snowing. Not heavily but snowing nevertheless. It was a short Jeep snort for Pheebs and I into Bayfield and around a few streets. I always enjoy looking at the diverse and picturesque architecture of all the homes and cottages old and new.
IT WAS A DIRTY LOOKING COLD AND WET NOVEMBER DAY
THURSDAYS STORMY LAKE HURON WATERS WERE A STUDY IN CALMNESS TODAY
NOT A NICE MORNING FOR WORKERS REMOVING BOAT DOCKS
A HARDY FISHERMAN STANDS ALONGSIDE THE FISHING BOAT DOCK IN THIS MORNINGS SNOWY COLD DRIZZLE
PHEEBS AND I HEAD FOR HOME
Ten a.m. found Pheebs and I driving Miss Kelly to Goderich where she had a few errands to run. Not knowing if the snow would get heavier or not I figured it was best to take the vehicle with the best tires. The snows didn’t get heavier and later turned to a drizzly rain. Errands done we decided to stop into Goderich’s Wendys and have us a look at their ‘value-meals’. I think the last time we were in a Wendys together was nearly 20 years ago or so in Woodstock Ontario when Uncle Harry took us there. A swing down around the Goderich harbor and twenty minutes later we were home again.
BULK CARRIER FEDERAL ALSTER WAS IN GODERICH’S PORT LOADING GRAINS
I LIKE HOW CANADA POST HAS BRIGHTLY JAZZED UP THEIR MAIL BOXES
Try as I did I couldn’t convince myself to head outside into the cold damp and putter around in the flowerbeds. Still things to do outside but they will just have to wait for an energy inducing warmer sunny day which may be upon us sometime in early May of next year.
MR. CARDINAL LOOKS A LITTLE CONFUSED BY ALL THE WHITE STUFF
‘AWWWW SNOW SCHMOW WHO CARES’
THAT’S MRS CARDINAL ON THE RIGHT
Facebook keeps dropping these 11 year old timebombs on me so here’s where we were and what we were doing 11 years ago today.
WE WALKED MOONFLOWER CANYON SLIGHTLY NORTHWEST OF MOAB UTAH IN THE MORNING
MAX, CHECKERS AND I HAD SCRAMBLED TO THE TOP OF A ROCK CROPPING AND HERE WE WAITED FOR KELLY AND CORA TO CATCH UP
MAX AND CHECKERS RUN BACK DOWN TO HURRY KELLY AND LITTLE CORA ALONG
WE LATER DROVE FURTHER NORTH OF MOAB TO DEAD HORSE POINT STATE PARK
KELLY OVERLOOKS DEAD HORSE POINT
WE SAW THIS SHIRT HANGING ON A BUSH AND WONDERED IF SOMEONE HAD LEFT IT THERE THEN WENT AND JUMPED OFF THE NEARBY CLIFF
It’s funny how I can’t remember things from a few days ago or even today but yet I can look at just about any of my countless thousands of photos over the years and I can instantly tell you where that photo was taken plus bits and pieces of that particular day. That alone tells me something very important about my mind as well as others. I believe our minds store the majority of our memories. They are there and only need a particular something to key the lock of the vault they are stored in. They are not gone, they are in storage. My photographs are a key for me and one glance at a photo swings the memory vault door wide open. I’m sure other people have experienced this as well. Music is another memory trigger for many people. A familiar song on the radio can instantly time travel a listener to a place and time in their past whether it be a couple days or decades ago. Chances are you may have never remembered a particular memory ever again if a piece of music had not triggered it. Ever been walking along past a pile of burning leaves or smell a campfire. In a nano-second one’s childhood camping adventures are right there alive and well. Yes, I think we all still have many of our life long memories stored away alright, it’s just the location of those misplaced keys to our minds many vaults we have trouble with……….
OH, AND FACEBOOK ALSO LET ME KNOW THAT A DAY BEFORE MOONFLOWER CANYON AND DEAD HORSE POINT WE WERE ALSO HIKING IN THE DEVILS GARDEN
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Mary and Jane are old friends. They have both been married to their husbands for a long time; Mary is upset because she thinks her husband doesn't find her attractive anymore. "As I get older he doesn't bother to look at me!" Mary cries. "I'm so sorry for you, as I get older my husband says I get more beautiful every day." replies Jane." Yes, but your husband's an antique dealer!"
A man came home from an exhausting day at work, plopped down on the couch in front of the television, and told his wife: "Get me a beer before it starts!" The wife sighed and got him a beer. Ten minutes later, he said: "Get me another beer before it starts!" She looked cross, but fetched another beer and slammed it down next to him. He finished that beer and a few minutes later said: "Quick, get me another beer, it's going to start any minute!" The wife was furious. "Is that all you're going to do tonight! Drink beer and sit in front of that TV! You're nothing but a lazy, drunken, fat slob and furthermore..."The man sighed and said: "It's started."
