A VERY UNUSUAL PHOTO OF MY SON SEAN AND I

With snow falling from the sky it made for a much prettier landscape this morning.  Nice change from dull and grey.  Pheebs and I wandered around come country roads northeast of Bayfield and the further north we ventured the more snow we encountered.  Prevailing northwest winds were bringing streamers in off the lake.  Roads were a little slippery in places but not too bad.  The small snow squalls were sporadic and it remained clear for most of the day.

 STARTING OUT THIS MORNING ROADS WERE SLIGHTLY SNOW COVERED

 THIS HAY WAGON PATIENTLY AWAITS BUSY SUMMER DAYS AHEAD
 ABOVE AND BELOW ARE TOUCHES OF COUNTRY COLOR ON A SNOWY SUNDAY MORNING

 SO NICE TO SEE A TOUCH OF GREEN
 IT'S REALLY TOO BAD WHEN PEOPLE DUMP THEIR TRASH IN THE COUNTRYSIDE
My PSA numbers are in and I'm happy to say they have dropped again.  From 15.6 before my prostate cancer radiation, they have dropped to .17 from .26 three months ago.  I can't say enough about the new SABR (Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy) treatment I received nearly a year and a half ago.  And two thumbs up for the London Health Sciences Center Cancer Clinic as well as my Oncologist, Dr. Mendez and his fine radiology team.

 ROADS WERE A WEE BIT SLIPPERY IN A FEW PLACES

 SNOWING HEAVIER NOW
 DO I HEAR CHRISTMAS CAROLS IN THE BACKGROUND .....SLEIGH RIDE
It was time to change my face mask today, it was getting a little too discolored.  Guess I just tried straining one too many bowls of soup through it.  And my Son Sean sent me a composite black and white photo of him and I together.  Thought it was kinda neat.  He had been going through some old photos recently.
 BOTH MY SON SEAN AND I ARE IN THIS SAME PHOTO....LOOK CLOSELY

 I WAS QUICK TO REMIND SEAN HE MAY HAVE MY LOOKS, BUT LUCKILY HE HAS HIS MOTHER'S SMARTS:))

A LOT MORE SNOW ON THE ROAD NOW AS WE APPROACH THIS RAILROAD TRESTLE


It was the dullest of afternoons with a few flakes of snow now and again making their way lazily to the ground.  Pheebs and I didn't even make it out for an afternoon walk.  My fault, not hers.  We are now into the dog days of Winter:

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A woman was trying hard to get the catsup to come out of the bottle. During her struggle, the phone rang so she asked her four-year-old daughter to answer the phone.  "It's the minister, Mommy," the child said to her mother.  Then she added, "Mommy can't come to the phone right now. She's hitting the bottle."

A wealthy investor walked into a bank and said to the bank manager, "I would like to speak with Mr. Reginald Jones, who I understand is a tried and trusted employee of yours."  The banker said, "Yes he certainly was trusted. And he will be tried as soon as we catch him."

  2. Fantastic PSA number. I think you're in the clear. Your son looks just like you. Two handsome guys! In that last photo of Pheebs, he looks like a wolf on the prowl.

  3. Wow, all of your photos are outstanding today. I would be hard pressed to chose a favourite, the first one caught my eye and then so did every other.

    Congrats on those PSA numbers, they don't get much better than that.

    Lovely composite of you and your son. Both talented and good looking guys.

  8. Enjoyed your son's photo shop. Just snow up here but at least it makes long nights brighter. I am amazed you go for a drive every day, my van has not been started for two weeks. Keep it up though as we all enjoy your photos.
