With a 66F start to our day I knew it was probably going to be a hot one and hot days don't work well for me anymore. (of course we all knew that right) Pheebs and I headed for Goderich while it was still reasonably cool, grabbed a McDonalds coffee, and slipped down around the harbor. Two large ships in port, the Algoma Sault loading salt and the Federal Caribou loading grain.

Despite the heat, I did mow some grass in our back yard and that was about it. With the exception of taking our air-conditioned Winnebago (Scooter) for a drive over to Holmesville and back we never ventured out of the house for the rest of the afternoon.
LOOKS LIKE A MORNING BREAKFAST BBQ

Supper tonight was a big bowl of oatmeal. Now, every time I say oatmeal I am meaning an extra special delicious brand of oatmeal called, Stoked Oats. More precisely, it is the 'Bucking-Eh' Oats I really like. The Mountain Maple Oats look good too but I've never seen them on the shelf here. And speaking of supper, I had quite a surprise Friday night when our good neighbor Monica came to the door and handed me a big bag with an already heated-up supper of spare ribs, potatoes, and mixed cooked vegetables inside. (all in containers of course) Well needless to say I wasn't long in getting my face right into that supper:))

A cop breaks up a fight by two invisible men. As the crowd gathers, he shouts, "Move along, folks. There's nothing to see here!"
So Moses is up on Mount Sinai and he says to God, "God, do I ever have a pounding headache!" And God says, "Here, take these two tablets."
