Minutes after Kelly left Pheebs and I were on the road as well heading for our country road walking place. I was a little disappointed to see a mower had come along and cut down most of the pretty ditch flowers alongside the road. A few drops of rain in the humid and slightly hazy cloud-covered sky. It was kind of a solemn walk followed by a half-hearted drive around a couple country blocks before returning home.
A perfect driving morning for Kelly with an overcast sky, no wind, and dry roads. Plus it was a quiet Sunday morning too. With her car loaded up, she rolled out the driveway at 8:30 this morning. I couldn't help but feel sad knowing the purpose of her long drive to Spencerport New York.
LOOKING SOUTH ALONG BAYFIELD'S BEACH
I can't really say much for the rest of the day. Rains came sometime after lunch so I spent most of my time sitting quietly in our sunroom reading with a few occasional short spurts of on again and off again television. For supper, I had a bowl of cereal.
DISAPPOINTED TO SEE OUR ROADSIDE FLOWERS MOWED DOWN A SUNDAY MORNING FARMER'S WORK IS NEVER DONE I THINK THIS OLD GMC TRUCK HAS SEEN BETTER DAYS, I DON'T THINK THIS OLDER TRUCK WILL BE GOING TOO MUCH FARTHER EITHER
Despite the mega heavy traffic in the Hamilton/St Catherines Ontario area, Kelly said her trip to Spencerport today went okay. At the border the border guard asked,"what are you bringing in?" I said cottage cheese & yogurt. He said "bleh" have a nice time". She arrived at her mother's house at 1:50 p.m. Along the way while still in Canada, Kelly stopped at a roadside flower stand and picked up some gladiolas for her Mom.
SAW THIS BALTIMORE ORIOLE ON OUR BIRDBATH THIS MORNING
A country preacher decided to skip services one Sunday to spend the day hiking in the wilderness. Rounding a sharp bend in the trail, he collided with a bear and was sent tumbling down a steep grade. He landed on a rock and broke both legs. With the ferocious bear charging at him from a distance, the preacher prayed, "O Lord, I'm so sorry for skipping services today. Please forgive me and grant me just one wish--make a Christian out of that bear that's coming at me!" At that very instant, the bear skidded to a halt, fell to his knees, clasped his paws together, and began to pray aloud at the preacher's feet: "Dear God, please bless this food I am about to receive."
Glad Kelly got there safely.ReplyDelete
Those Glads are beautiful. It bums me out too when they cut the roadside wildflowers.ReplyDelete
Your oriole is stunning as are Kelly's gladiolas. So glad she made it safely.ReplyDelete
Spencerport is very close to where I grew up in Hilton and Scottsville, NY.ReplyDelete
Very glad she had no trouble crossing the border. I didn't realize it was open. I guess the Canadian onslaught in Florida will be back at its fever pitch this winter.ReplyDelete
Sherry, The border is not open . Kelly is a U.S. citizen.Delete
