Despite partially snow covered slushily roads it was all three of us in the Jeep this morning as we made our way to Goderich through some moderate to minor blowing snow. Popped into Mark’s Work Wearhouse to see if they had something called ‘neck warmers’ but they didn’t. From there it was off to a breakfast restaurant where I have been seeing a lot of cars parked in the mornings. Breakfast was Okay but don’t think we’ll hurry back anytime soon. A swing down around Goderich’s harbor where blowing wet westerly winds were lashing long gray waves into Lake Huron’s eastern shoreline. Pheebs hopped out for a peeps and wasn’t long in getting right back into the Jeep again. Brrrrr. Five minutes later we were on our way home in a mixture of snow, rain, sleet and graupel. Most roads were just bare and wet making for a dirty driving day again. I don’t see any point in wasting time washing the Jeep until maybe late April 2019.

ON THE WAY HOME ROADS BECAME MORE SNOW COVERED THE CLOSER WE GOT TO BAYFIELD
Home by 11 and that was about it for another day. With a mixture of snow and rain coming down there was no point in going back outside. Just kinda sat back and enjoyed all the birds at our feeders. It’s quite a cast of characters we have out there and that includes the pesky Squirrels who have figured out a way to get on top of our bird station and gobble up all the birdseed again. About 3 months ago I had re-located that bird station after the Squirrels had been climbing up some tall plant stalks and jumping over onto it. Now they go up a nearby Cedar tree and launch themselves from there about a mile and a half through the air onto our bird station. Well Okay, maybe not quite a mile and a half but at least 10 feet for sure. They crawl out to the end of the bending branches then fling themselves over to the bird platform. Soon as the snow melts I gotta get my red handled shovel out and re-locate that feeder ‘again’!!!!
PESKY LITTLE DEVIL AND HE KNOWS IT
It bugs me that I have allowed myself to get all caught up in the political dramatics of our big neighbor to the south. I have never cared much for any of the so called ‘reality’ shows on television over the years because they are more of a scripted and acted reality than true reality itself but this American political debacle taking place in America, disgusting as it can be at times is a true reality and has sucked me right in and riveted me to the television. I keep snapping on the TV at the top of each hour to see how much farther the overall madness has marched. Absolutely unbelievable what is happening and has happened to that once fine country over the past couple years. By the way, there are things I miss and do not miss about RV travels and one thing I did not miss while on the road was television. How nice it was these past couple years of winter travels not to know what was going on politically in the very country we were traveling in. What a big huge mess you guys are caught up in down there.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Man goes to see a dentist and asks "How much to pull two wisdom teeth?"Dentist says "$100.00."Man says, "too much. Can't you do it for less?"Dentist says "I can do it for $50 if I cut out the novacaine."Man says, "that's better but still too much. Can't we do it any cheaper?"Dentist says, "I could let my trainee do it for $20 but she has never pulled a tooth before and it would be quite painful."Man says, "That's great. Schedule my wife for next Tuesday."
Please excuse Jennifer for missing school yesterday. We forgot to get the Sunday paper off the porch, and when we found it Monday, we thought it was Sunday.
A man lies on his deathbed, surrounded by his family: a weeping wife and four children. Three of the children are tall, good-looking and athletic; but the fourth and youngest is an ugly runt. "Darling wife," the husband whispers, "assure me that the youngest child really is mine. I want to know the truth before I die, I will forgive you if-" The wife gently interrupts him. "Yes, my dearest, absolutely, no question, I swear on my mother's grave that you are his father." The man then dies, happy. The wife mutters under her breath: "Thank God he didn't ask about the other three."
