Fortunately, with a good night's sleep, Kelly is looking and feeling better today. Her bouts of itching are directly related to her failing liver condition and those bouts can strike at any time with no warning. Unfortunately, they seem to happen more in the night and the attack she had Monday night was the worst so far. It's generally in her arms. She has been prescribed pills and creams but they are no longer giving the satisfactory relief they once did. She slipped up to Goderich's Dynacare blood clinic this morning and plans to call her Doctor in a couple days.
NEAR OIL SPRINGS ONTARIO TUESDAY AFTERNOON
|SPOTTED THIS OLD STEAM ENGINE AS WE MADE OUR WAY THROUGH SARNIA TUESDAY MORNING|
Nice sunny cool morning earlier today so Pheebs and I slipped out to enjoy a few hours of this gorgeous early Fall day. Home again I had a few more things to unload from the rig and decided to clean up the Jeep's interior. No small feat with doggy fur everywhere. In fact, I sucked up so much doggy fur the vacuum cleaner started wagging its cord and barked at me.
REALLY LIKED THIS OLD STONE HOUSE WE SAW ALONG THE WAY
|THE SARNIA AREA IS OIL COUNTRY WITH A NUMBER OF REFINERIES|
After rolling south out of Sarnia Tuesday morning we had us a leisurely drive along the St. Clair River. So refreshing to see new scenery and travel roads we had never traveled before. Kelly wanted to stop into a Blueberry Farm over near Bothwell Ontario so after awhile we headed east in that direction. Feeling the need for a traveling breakfast we stopped in Wallaceburg along the way at a McDonalds and it was here I noticed we had a flat tire on the rig.
|NICE DAY FOR A DRIVE WITH VERY LITTLE TRAFFIC ANYWHERE|
|VERY PRETTY DRIVE ALONG THE ST. CLAIR RIVER|
|LOOKING ACROSS THE RIVER TO AMERICA|
|AND HOLY KA-SMOLLY WE MADE IT ALL THE WAY TO WYOMING:))|

|NICE OUTDOOR WAITING ROOM AS KELLY CATCHES A FEW WINKS|
The Blueberry Farm wasn't up to snuff so Kelly didn't buy anything and I didn't even go in. Took Pheebs for a walk around the grounds instead. I could see Kelly was really tired by this point but she wanted to soldier on anyway. We headed northwest for a little spit of a place called, Oil Springs. Thinking the Oil Museum of Canada near there would be open, we found out it wasn't. We had forgot about Covid. This may be a little hard for a lot of hardened oil folks to believe but this is the site of the very first commercial oil well in 'all of North America'. The well was dug by James Miller Williams in 1858. Although unable to get onto the grounds we were able to drive slowly by on the gravel road and I snapped a few pictures.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A man was sitting in a bar and noticed a group of people using sign language. He also noticed that the bartender was using sign language to speak to them. When the bartender returned to him, the man asked how he had learned to use sign language. The bartender explained that these were regular customers and had taught him to speak in sign. The man thought that was great. A few minutes later the man noticed that the people in the group were waving their hands around very wildly. The bartender looked over and signed "Now cut that out! I warned you!" and threw the group out of the bar. The man asked why he had done that and the bartender said, "If I told them once I told them 100 times - NO SINGING IN THE BAR!"
