|IT WAS NICE LISTENING TO THE SOUNDS OF BURBLING WATER THIS MORNING|
|IT WAS FROZEN SNOW AND ICE ON BANNOCKBURN'S BOARDWALK THIS MORNING|
|MELTING SNOW HAS CREEKS AND RIVERS RISING|
|IN LESS THAN A WEEK ALL THIS SNOW SHOULD BE GONE|
|MAPLE SYRUP SAP PAILS|
|I SURE HOPE THIS FELLA'S GOT SOME GOOD SNOW TIRES ON THAT THING|
Why did the cat want to join the Red Cross?
He wanted to be a first aid kit!
Nine year old Joey was asked by his mother what he had learned at Sunday school. "Well, Mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. "When he got to the Red Sea, he had his engineers build a pontoon bridge and all the people walked across safely. "Then he used his walkie-talkie to radio headquarters for reinforcements. They sent bombers to blow up the bridge and all the Israelites were saved." "Now, Joey, is that really what your teacher taught you?" his mother asked. "Well, no. But if I told it the way the teacher did, you'd never believe it!"
Cold running water but at least it's not ice anymore. My Dad joined the Army Air Corp in 1941. He became a B-25 bomber pilot and flew many missions over Europe. In civilian life afterwards he remained a pilot for airlines. He flew until he was too old to fly. WWII certainly affected his life. Relaxing in a lounge chair and reading a book on a drizzly day isn't a bad way to spend a day.ReplyDelete
One of my favourite times of year is when the snow melt is going on and you know spring and summer are near by. Things start to look cleaner as the dirty snow washes away, sap buckets hanging on the trees, birds you've missed hearing all winter are evident again, and tiny shoots start to peek out from Mother Earth. You can feel refreshed and invigorated simply by breathing. Hopefully folks are smart enough to stay a good distance from rivers and shore lines with the soft ground and saturated land that easily break away and drop one into the frigid waters and sweep them away in the current.ReplyDelete
