|OH HOW I LOVE SEEING GREEN TREES AGAINST BLUE SKIES IN THE WINTER|
|A FISHING BOAT WITH ITS BINS OF FISHING NETS|
|THAT PICK-UP TRUCK IS WEDGED BETWEEN THE DIESEL ENGINE AND A WIRE FENCE...THE TWO PEOPLE IN IT WHEN THE TRAIN SIDE-SWIPED THEM HAD TO BE EXTRACATED|
|YOU CAN SEE HOW CLOSE THAT PICK-UP TRUCK AND TRAIN WERE TO ENDING UP IN THE FREEZING COLD WATERS OF THE GODERICH HARBOR WHICH IS AT THAT HORIZONTAL STEEL RAIL|
|I DON'T THINK THIS OLDER HARBOR TUG IS ON ACTIVE DUTY ANYMORE|
|IN THIS PHOTO ARE 3 TUG BOATS AND 3 FISHING BOATS|

|THIS WINTER'S TRAIL LEADS INTO THE WOODS|
|HOW NICE TO BE IN A FOREST ON A SUNNY WINTER'S DAY AND IT REMINDED ME OF MY LONG AGO CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING DAYS|
|WITH TODAY'S WARMING SUN IT WAS SO NICE TO SEE A BIT OF MELTING GOING ON|
|TRACKS IN WINTER'S SNOW|
|MOST OF OUR PAVED ROADS ARE BARE AND DRY BUT NOT THIS ONE....ITS PURE ICE|
|A STATELY STAND OF BIRCH TREES|
|YOU CAN SEE WHERE I HAVE PULLED DOWN SOME SNOW OFF OUR FRONT PORCH ROOF|
And, it was nice enough for Pheebs and I to resume our afternoon walks. Luckily, roads were plowed back through the forest all the way around so we were able to enjoy a nice walk in the afternoon sunshine.
|NO, NOT UFO'S AHEAD....THOSE ARE CAMERA LENS REFLECTIONS CAUSED BY THE SUN|
|NO, NOT PILES OF SNOW BUT PILES OF DIRT WITH SNOW ON THEM|
|WARMING SUN'S RAYS HAVE REALLY BEEN DIGGING AWAY AT THIS DIRT ROAD|
Sure are a lot of pine trees coming down on the new southern road extension of Cedar Drive in our Park. Looks like both sides of the road are being clear-cut with no pines left standing. We still don't know if our Park has been sold or not. We are leaning towards thinking it has not.
|ALL THE PINE TREES ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE ROAD HAVE BEEN CUT DOWN AND ABOUT HALF ON THE RIGHT SIDE ARE DOWN|
GROANER'S CORNER:((Boudreaux was feeling guilty, so he went to confession."Father, I kinda took a little lumber from that new construction site."
Priest: "What did you do with the lumber, my son?"
Boudreaux: "Well, Father, my porch, she's had a hole for a long time. I'm 'fraid someone will break their leg, so I fix the hole."
Priest: "Well, that's not so bad."
Boudreaux: "Well, Father, I had a little lumber left."
Priest: "What did you do with it?"
Boudreaux: "Well, my poor dog, Phideaux, he ain't never had no place to get outta the weather, so I make him his own little doghouse."
Priest: "OK, anything else?"
Boudreaux: "Well, Father, I had a little lumber left. So you know, my truck, she ain't never had no place to get outta de weather either, so I make her a two car garage."
Priest: "Now, this is getting a little out of hand."
Boudreaux: "Well, Father, I still had a little lumber left."
Boudreaux: "Well, my wife, she always want a bigger house. So I add two bedrooms and a new bathroom."
Priest: "OK! That's definitely too much. For your penance, you are going to have to make a Novena. You do know how to make a Novena, don't you?"
Boudreaux: "No, Father... But, if you got the plans, I got the lumber."
What do you call two Spanish firemen?

When you die, which part of your body is LAST to die? Your eyes... they dilate!
The Sun and Snow look good together but only to look at.ReplyDelete
It goes well with the last Groaners Picture.
Be Safe and Enjoy the return of Winter.
It's about time.
What a difference a day makes! Still lots of snow around, but sunshine for sure. Thanks for answering my question....I didn't mean to imply anything about your personal roof, just roofs in general. (Had seen someone on teevee in Alaska shoveling an almost flat roof off, so it was on my mind.) As for warrying more than you should, I know what that feels like. Ha.anyway, thanks, as usual.ReplyDelete
Brrrr...looks too cold to venture out, at least to me. I get chilled easily and it takes forever it seems to warm back up these days. I know you and Kelly are itching to take that Class C out on a road trip real soon...ReplyDelete
Glad you're getting a few days of sunshine 🌞. Wonder what caused that train to go off like that. They sure are harvesting a lot of trees in your park.ReplyDelete
4th sunny day in a row here! I'm told they brought in'sidewinders' to clean up the train. Like commbination bulldozer/front end loaders. Four of them will lift each locomotive or car up and put it back the the tracks. But you can't get close for any pictures.ReplyDelete
