Richard picked me up at 9 and we were off for our semi-monthly coffee run. It was a nicer weather morning than predicted and we had a few brief spots of sunlight early on. Our travels took us to Goderich where we dusted up a few streets and a couple country roads outside of town. We worked on life's usual challenges and made some headway.
SUMMER CHAIRS PATIENTLY AWAITING THE END OF WINTER
Temps were a degree or two above freezing so we had a wee bit of melting going on all day. However, this will be our last above freezing day for the next couple of weeks by the looks of it. A cold spell is moving our way.
DON'T KNOW IF THAT IS HALF A TRACTOR OR A MOBILE GENERATOR......MAYBE BOTH
Friday morning was to have been a different start to our day with all three of us heading out in the Jeep. Kelly had a morning ultra-sound appointment at London's University Hospital. I say 'had' because with today's weather advisory warning of heavy snow, plunging temperatures, and the 'potential for a 'high impact storm' overnight with snow squalls, Kelly canceled her appointment. Luckily she was able to re-book it for next Tuesday whereupon the weather folks are calling for a big bright sunny day. Hey, did you know it is only 8 weeks until the first day of Spring. Or, did I already mention that. Ya, knowing me as well as I sometimes do, I probably mentioned it before. Maybe even half a dozen times.Pheebs and I did make it out for an afternoon walk and came upon a couple brush piles burning. There has been a lot of tree cutting over the past couple of weeks with a logging truck taking out huge loads of logs. Our Park is slowly losing more of its treasured pine forest. New Park owners?? Nope, we are still under the same management we have been since moving here over 18 years ago.
|NOPE, THAT AIN'T NO BACKYARD MELLO AND WEENIES FIRE|
Thirteen years ago on this day we were quite comfortably boondocked in the desert about 6 miles south of Quartzsite Arizona. However, it didn't turn out to be a good day. We had to pack up all our stuff twice in one day and move. I sure turned the air blue!! We Had To Move Twice!!!!
THERE IS ANOTHER PILE ABOUT 3 TIMES THIS SIZE BURNING ELSEWHERE BUT I DIDN'T GET OVER THAT WAY
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A man named Ronald bought a horse from a farmer for $250. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day. The next day, the farmer drove up to Ronald's house and said, “Sorry, son, but I have some bad news. The horse died.” Ronald replied, “Well, then just give me back my money.” The farmer said, “Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.” Ronald said, “Ok, then just bring me the dead horse.” The farmer asked, “What ya gonna do with him?” Ronald said, “I’m going to raffle him off.” The farmer said, “You can’t raffle off a dead horse!” Ronald said, “Sure I can! Watch me. A month Later, the farmer met up with Ronald and asked, “What happened with that dead horse?” Ronald said, “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at five dollars apiece and made a profit of $2495.” The farmer said, “Didn’t anyone complain?” Ronald said, “Just the guy who won. So I gave him back his five dollars.” Ronald is guaranteed to have a bright future in politics.
People are usually shocked when they find out I am not a good electrician.
Glad you reminded me that spring is only 8 weeks away!ReplyDelete
One of these days you and Richard will get it al; figured out and then you can let the rest of us know. I keep thinking that might be the result of my discussions with friends, but it hasn't happened yet. That does not mean that I don't have faith you guys can do it.ReplyDelete
My area also has a cold front moving in with several storms in the week ahead. The forecasters are telling us to expect about 3 feet of snow from tomorrow through next Friday. If this happens we will have received over 60 inches since the first part of December. Have my best friend "the shovel" at the ready. I too am looking forward to Spring.ReplyDelete
We're still hoping for some winter rains before we move into warmer temps again. There's snow in the week's forecast but I'll believe it when I see it! Love the crows. They keep their distance here, never joining the other birds in the yard. Hope the tree cutting ends soon!!ReplyDelete
Too bad they didn't allow Park Residents to collect the logs for their personal Firepits.ReplyDelete
Like you we are so looking forward to the first day of Spring. Of course it will probably Rain. LOL!
Be Safe and Enjoy the milder days.
It's about time.
