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.

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. 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.
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
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."
