|A DRAGONFLY OR FLAGONDRY AS I SOMETIMES CALL THEM|
Under clear blue sunny skies, it was all three of us in the Jeep this morning heading for Exeter Ontario's Canadian Tire Store. Needed a new battery for our 10-year-old weed whacker and we're finding 18V batteries harder to get now since those batteries were discontinued a few years ago. We thought the CTC store in Exeter had one but they didn't. It wasn't a wasted drive to Goderich though because we snagged a take-out breakfast from A&W. And besides, it was a nice Saturday morning for a drive for all 3 of us together for a change.

|SPOTTED THIS RARE ARTICULATED PYTHON IN A CREEK TODAY....OKAY OKAY, SO IT WAS JUST A LARGE BRANCH|
Home again and energized by cooler air I hauled out our mower and cut all the grass. It was 47F when we got up this morning. I think we topped out at 66F today. Bonus. Following that, Pheebs and I took Scooter for a 'Whoop-T-Toot' around half a dozen big country blocks. It gave the engine a whirl, the tires a turn, and the batteries a boost. And it always gives me a boost too.

Despite tussling with a late morning cloud cover Old Sol finally won the day and we had ourselves a marvelously sunny cool day. Although about 90% of our beloved Pine Tree Trail is gone forever now Pheebs and I did slip out for a walk around the Park's pond looking for a few photos. And we found some.

Nice memories of the day you got your RV,I hope you make it to the south west USA this yearReplyDelete
Those are great flutterby photos! I especially like the one with the head-on view...don't see that often. I suppose photographers do want to show the full magnificence of the wings, which you have done for the other ones...for sure. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Careful. Articulated pythons are known to perfectly mimic sunken logs. They also like to curl up under recliners in sunrooms.ReplyDelete
Your photos of the “flutterbys” are absolutely amazing!ReplyDelete
Really enjoyed the butterfly pictures. Thank You.ReplyDelete
You might find your older Batteries on E-Bay. Just type in the Battery Model Number.ReplyDelete
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
Awesome pictures of the flagondry and flutterbys! They're just so perfectly clear! A far cry from my own iphone photos now.ReplyDelete
