MY UROLOGIST PHONED THIS AFTERNOON WITH MY LATEST PSA NUMBER

GOLDFINCH
Had probably been about 7 months since Richard and I saw each other last and had a coffee together.  Today we pretty much picked up right where we left off last year with the only difference being we didn't do our usual country road tour this morning.  Instead we (and Pheebs) did a forest walk around some trails over at his place.  Of course with this Covid thing going on we had more problems to solve than usual so we had to work harder than ever at keeping ourselves focused. Later slipped inside where Gayle brewed us all up a coffee.
NICE WALK IN THE WOODS FOR RICHARD, PHEEBS AND I
EVEN SAW A BURGUNDY TRILLIUM TRYING TO COAX ITSELF OUT INTO MORNINGS COOL AIR
Overnight temps dipped slightly below freezing but at least we started the day off with sunshine and blue skies.  By early afternoon we were again under a cloud cover.  Stayed close to the phone awaiting a call from my Urologist, Dr. Bukala in Stratford, Ontario.  Under normal conditions I would have had an appointment with him this morning at the Clinton Hospital.  However, with most normalcy right out the window these days I awaited his call for the results of my latest PSA blood test regarding the status of my Prostate Cancer.  He called at 1:45 to tell me my PSA number had gone down even more to 0.3 from .45 which was down from an all-time high of 15.4.  Two thumbs up for PSA testing, my Oncologist Dr. Mendez, the London Cancer Clinic, and the newer SABR Radiation Treatment  (Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy)

SO WILBUR WHO IS THAT FEATHERED HUSSY YOU HAVE HIDING BEHIND THE POST?!!?
<<<< FEMALE CARDINAL
Cold wind on our afternoon walk here in the Park but with Pheebs fur coat and my lined nylon jacket we were Okay to go.  Our Park is still in a state of flux and we the residents still don't know what is happening.  The couple who have owned the Park since before we came here split up quite awhile ago and one of them is no longer involved in the ownership of the Park.  Rumors still abound about a potential buyer for the Park but it is all just rumors as far as we can figure.  It is like we residents have been left aboard a foundering ship in heavy seas without a steady hand on the wheel.   
MORE BUSHLOTS BEING CLEARED
AT LEAST THIS NEW ROAD GOING NOWWHERE GIVES PHEEBS AND I ANOTHER PLACE TO WALK
NOPE WE STILL DON'T HAVE A CLUE WHAT'S GOING ON HERE IN OUR PARK
Pheebs and I did get out for a short Jeep ride around Bayfield earlier this morning before heading over to Richards.  Looks like they have most of the old 73 year old Bayfield bridge demolished already.

NOT MUCH OF THE OLD BAYFIELD BRIDGE LEFT BUT RUBBLE
GREAT WEATHER FOR FARMERS GETTING OUT ONTO THEIR FIELDS
GROANER'S CORNER:(( 
- If you let a smile be your umbrella, then most likely your butt will get soaking wet.
- The only two things we do with greater frequency in middle age are urinate and attend funerals.
- The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.
- To err is human, to forgive is highly unlikely.
- Do you realize that in about 40 years, we'll have thousands of old ladies running around with droopy tattoos?
- Money can't buy happiness but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Porsche than in a Hyundai.------------------------------
MY DOCTOR ASKED IF ANYONE IN MY FAMILY WAS SUFFERING FROM MENTAL ILLNESS.  I SAID; "NO, WE ALL SEEM TO ENJOY IT"

  6. Giving "Two thumbs up" to a prostate exam almost seems like...well, I don't know. It almost sounds...well, uncomfortable at best.
    Wait, I'm being told that's just an expression. Never mind.

  9. So happy for you Al. You and Kelley must be so relieved. This was a good year to miss traveling to Arizona. The state has a little over 9K COVID-19 cases. As a full-time RVer very different time finding open RV Parks. Thank you for your blog. It helps me quite my mind at 3AM.Take good care of yourselves,
