|MANAGED TO CATCH A FEW VERY BRIEF SUN SPLASHES THIS MORNING|
And so begins the lengthening of our days. How can the addition of a mere few seconds of daylight mean so psychologically much? Well, I don't know either but it somehow does. Welcome oh great added moments of light to our day. Sally forth and make our long darkened days bright once again. And yes, Kelly and I did definitely notice the day was longer even if it was only a few seconds and cloudy.
Despite it officially being Winter now it looked more like a day in late October or March. Our ground is bare and free of snow at the moment and I've been wearing my summer footwear this past while. And so it was as Pheebs and headed into Bayfield this morning and out the other side down the Bronson Line. Seeing how country roads were muddy from a slight overnight drizzle I was determined to keep the recently washed Jeep on the pavement. Reaching the large parking lot of a Mennonite country church we stopped for a short walk. With cold winds coming in off the lake a couple miles to the west we were soon back into the Jeep and headed for home. A few brief sunny breaks along the way allowed for a few photos.

Once back in the house I pretty much stayed there tucked away in my warm and cozy little sunroom corner. Well, that is until Pheebs coaxed me out the door around 3 for a walk around the Park's pond. I'm sure we were both much the better for it despite it being a cold and dull gray day.
Five years ago today on December22nd 2015 Kelly, Pheebs, and I toured the big Palomar Observatory on Mount Palomar in California. We also met another RV couple for the first time on that same day as well.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A little girl is sitting on her grandpa's lap and studying the wrinkles on his old face. She gets up the nerve to rub her fingers over the wrinkles. Then she touches her own face and looks more puzzled. Finally, the little girl asks, "Grandpa, did God make you?" "He sure did honey, a long time ago," replies her grandpa. "Well, did God make me?" asks the little girl. "Yes, He did, and that wasn't too long ago," answers her grandpa. "Boy," says the little girl, "He's sure doing a lot better job these days isn't He?"
I had the rudest, slowest, and nastiest cashier today so that’s the last time I use the self checkout lane!
My Soviet-made car never worked. It had a Lada problems. It was a Lenin. It kept Stalin. I would always have to use my feet, and Trotsky to work. Having to constantly do that was total Bolshevik!
That extra few minutes of light are welcome indeed!ReplyDelete
Hey that's not fair we only got an extra minute and the Sun stayed hidden the entire time.ReplyDelete
Wishing you, Kelly and Pheebs a Safe and Merry Christmas. Our's will be turning White.
It's about time.

If it weren't for Pheebs for you and Yuma for me we would never get out of our lounge chairs 😀 I've got enough dust in my Jeep I don't think it will ever look clean again! Stay warm.ReplyDelete
Yes! Counting those extra seconds of daylight with delight. Another 8 months, and summer will return ;-)ReplyDelete
