Had to insert this short paragraph here because I made a text and photo mistake in my spacing.
|WHAT A NICE WAY TO START THE DAY WITH THESE MOODY MORNING SKIES|
|SKIES BEGAN CLEARING AS WE MADE OUR WAY FROM CLINTON TO AMISH/MENNONITE COUNTRY|
|WALKING ACROSS A FIELD i NOTICED THIS HORSE STOP AND LAY DOWN|
|IT SURE HAD ITSELF A GOOD ROLL AROUND BEFORE GETTING UP AND CARRYING ON|
|IN AMISH/MENNONITE COUNTRY HOUSES ARE GENERALLY WHITE AND BARNS ARE RED|
|FOLKS WERE OUT AND ABOUT TODAY|
|AND WE HAVE OUR OWN GENUINE COWBOYS RIGHT HERE IN HURON COUNTY|
|THIS WAS A VERY LONG STATIONERY TELEPHOTO SHOT|
My day was made when I spotted a small sheep beside the road which had obviously slipped out of an enclosure on the other side of a fence. I quickly stopped (I'm never going fast anyway) and reversed myself back down the road to the farmer's driveway. Pulling in the farm's laneway and up to the house I gave two short toots on the horn which in turn brought a Mennonite fellow out of the barn next door. Told him about the sheep on the road and he headed straight away down the lane to retrieve it offering many thanks to Pheebs and I.
|THIS IS THE SHEEP FARM WE WERE DRIVING BY|
|AND THIS IS THE LITTLE FELLA ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE FENCE|
|TRYING TO FIND IT'S WAY BACK THROUGH THE FENCE|
|'CAN YOU HELP ME MISTER'|
Home again around 11 it was cool still cool enough for me to stay outside and putter around in the gardens. The coolness hung in so about mid-afternoon being curious to see how they had made out with the new road culvert project in the Park Pheebs and I headed down that way for a walk.
|THE INCOMING END OF THE TWO SMALL WATER CULVERTS|
|PHEEBS AND I CAME DOWN THAT FAR BANK AND EASILY CROSSED THE CULVERTED CREEK|
|SOON WE WILL BE ABLE TO DRIVE RIGHT THROUGH THERE|
|THIS IS ALL THAT'S LEFT OF MY FAVORITE TREE|
|I STAND ON THE SPOT WHERE MY TREE ONCE STOOD IN A QUIET FOREST|
