Sunny warm start to our day so I knew it was going to be another hot one. Loaded up Little Chief Crazy Beans and off we went with all windows down. Quickly accelerating to a higher speed we almost blew the stuffings out of ourselves.
|MORE FLOWERS IN OUR FLOWER GARDENS|Rolled out north of Goderich wandering a few gravely roads. With the heat and humidity building, I knew we wouldn't be walking anywhere so it wasn't long and we were back home again. In human years Pheebs is about the same age I am now and I've noticed the heat bothers her too. She's not keen on our afternoon walks so much anymore and lags behind and sometimes just downright doesn't want to go in which case we don't go.

Two days in a row now I have gone out to put some birdseed on the feeder and ended up puttering around in the heat at garden projects. Not too smart on my part. Today I mowed our front yard and noticed more of last year's clover has finally come up. Both grass and clover are working nicely together to fill in our lawn. Will be good to have something green other than moss this summer.

By the end of July the old Blogger format will be gone forever. I tried the new Blogger several times, didn't like it, and went back to the old Blogger. The writing is plainly on the wall and tells me if I don't get with Blogger's new program my blogging days will soon be over. So, here I am for my third attempt at their new format. No point in me expressing my frustrations with their new platform and just get on with it best I can. Expect to see blog fumbles for awhile. Photo spacing, unexpected changes in text size, etc. All the usual Blogger stuff. I will start out with a large font making it easier for me to see what I'm writing as well as making it easier for folks to read. I know how frustratingly annoying it is when people use a small font that makes me have to enlarge my computer screen every time I attempt to read their posts. I have a tendency to avoid posts using small print.

Luckily we had a breeze in off the lake this afternoon which lifted some of the heavy humidity out of the air making a walk doable for Pheebs and I. Plus, our temperatures are thankfully going down. We ventured back along the new bush roads looking for some old familiar trail markers but it's a whole different landscape back there now. From one new road, we crossed a small creek to where another new road will be joining up once a culvert is put in. I got across the creek without any soakers but Pheebs got 4 soakers, a wet tummy, and a soggy tail. Once these roads are done it will make for some nice walking and bicycling. Yes, I would prefer the old trails but it's not the way things are here anymore and time moves on.

|AND THIS IS THE VERY DOZER THAT WIPED OUT 'MY TREE'|Okay, so I just finished my whole post using Blogger's new format and this time I slid right through it like a hot knife through butter. Never had any problems. (except for two paragraphs) Different way of embedding photos but I figured it out and it's maybe a better way than before....it that's possible. Maybe I just got lucky this time or maybe Blogger has fixed a few 'bug' issues this past week. Anyway, I will keep my fingers crossed that future blog efforts will be as simple as this one was:)) GROANER'S CORNER:(( John's working at the lumber yard, pushing a tree through the buzz saw, and accidentally shears off all ten of his fingers. He goes to the hospital. The doctor says, "Yuck! Well, give me the fingers, and I'll see what I can do." John says, "I haven't got the fingers." The doctor says, "What do you mean, you haven't got the fingers? It's 2012. We've got microsurgery and all kinds of incredible techniques. I could have put them back on and made you like new. Why didn't you bring the fingers?" John says, "Well, Doc, I couldn't pick 'em up."

You have some stunning flowers, and stunning pictures of them.ReplyDelete
Great picture of you. I didn't know anything about a new blogger format but I'm wondering now if it will make publishing from Open Live Writer impossible again. If so, I may throw in the towel. I've never had much patience and now I'm down to near zero. Don't think I can go through another protracted "figure it out" period. Looks like a baby oriole to me. Great pictures as always.ReplyDelete
The whole post today looks great. You've done it. For today anyway...Thanks for your efforts. The photos are as usual, well above average, as Garrison Keillor used to say. But in this case, they really are.ReplyDelete
What a lovely way to end my day, by enjoying all of your amazing and beautiful photos. Thank you ever so much for your efforts.ReplyDelete
I don't see any difference from the old format to the new. Or is it just a different way of working with it.ReplyDelete
I really like the larger font, guess my eyes are getting tired. For some reason the photos appear brighter. So happy that you took the bull by the horns and wrestled the new blogger to the ground. Wishing you continued success with the program.ReplyDelete
