Rain rolled in early Wednesday night and hung around on and off right through till morning. With the rain came a low morning cloud cover creating a few fog patches across the landscape. Sunshine finally broke through shortly before noon.

Pheebs and I ambled our way into Bayfield checking out a few of our favorite places. Boat docks are filling up and I saw a group of guys getting ready to install the main mast on a waiting sailboat.
|IT WAS MUCH FOGGIER CLOSE TO THE LAKE MAING THESE POLE WALKERS HARD TO SEE ON BAYFIELD'S SOUTH PIER|
|I THINK THOSE FELLERS ARE ABOUT TO INSTALL THAT TALL MAST ON THAT SAILBOAT|
|THE LINFIELD WILDLIFE AREA, AND IF YOU LOOK HARD YOU CAN SEE THE JEEP|
|A MONTH AGO A LOT OF BIRDS COULD BE HEARD IN THESE HEDGEROW TREES|
|WILD ROSE BUSHES ALONG THE HEDGEROW|

Continuing east I snapped a few pics along the way while admiring how things are growing and how green and fresh everything looked after the overnight rain. Corns up about 6 inches already and the bean fields are sprouting. It's late Spring in southwestern Ontario and I'm glad to be here.
|MANY CORNFIELDS IN THE AREA|

As per our usual routine, we were home well before noon. I generally like to download and edit all my photos right away and get the blog started before reading a bit and grabbing a few early afternoon zzzzzzz's. Following that, I head back out the door to do some puttering and take Pheebs for a walk back through the forest. Well, what's left of the forest that is. Chain saws were going full tilt again this afternoon and I could hear more tall pine trees coming down.

|ONLY ONE HORN ON THIS ONE TOO|

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A brunetts' car gets a flat tire on the Interstate one day so she eases it over onto the shoulder of the road. She carefully steps out of the car and opens the trunk. She then takes out two cardboard men, unfolds them and stands them at the rear of the vehicle facing oncoming traffic. The lifelike cardboard men are in trench coats exposing their nude bodies to approaching drivers... Not surprisingly, the traffic became snarled and backed up. It wasn't very long before a police car arrives. The Officer, clearly enraged, approaches the blonde of the disabled vehicle yelling, "What is going on here?" "My car broke down, Officer" says the woman, calmly. "Well, what the hell are these obscene cardboard pictures doing here by the road?!" asks the Officer... "Helllllooooo, those are my emergency flashers!" she replies.
