For our semi-monthly country road coffee tour it was Richards turn to drive and he picked up at 9 a.m. sharp. Cloudy and cold but at least it wasn't raining. However, snow is predicted over the next few days. Looks like it could be a looooooong winter. Our travels this morning took us up around the Goderich area whereupon we loaded ourselves up with an ample supply of McDonalds coffee and carrot muffins. Okay, one coffee and one muffin apiece. For us two old guys I would say that was ample:))
WE STILL HAVE COLOR IN OUR FRONT YARD

With winter fast approaching I'm trying to decide whether to put on the Jeep's heavy-duty tires or not. If Pheebs and I stuck to paved roads all winter in the 4 wheel drive Jeep we might be alright but of course, that is not what we are in the habit of doing. It's basically a hundred dollar bill to switch tires in the Fall and another hundred dollar bill to switch them back again in the Spring. I guess maybe that should be my answer.

Kind of a dull afternoon with a short Pheeber walk thrown in to brighten the day. Hadn't taken any photos this morning so I took my camera for a walk around our yard late this afternoon. No matter what, there are always photos to be found if one has the interest to look for them. Sometimes that interest can be a wee bit hard to find.
Not much going on in our neck of the woods these days and in this day and age of tumultuous stressful events, I guess we should be very thankful for not having a lot of that stress going on right here where we are. Next week about this time many folks might be wishing we could turn the clock back a week to what might seem like simpler times. Good luck America in holding your great country together through the approaching storm now swiftly bearing down on you and darkening your doorstep. Just know you have your concerned neighborly Canadian friends just on the other side of the border from you.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher. The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked. "Sure," said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child."
