|AN OLD STONE WALL|
Cooler air came in overnight knocking out the heat and miserable humidity so it was a much better day today. Lots of sunshine and cool breezes. Needed a few things in Goderich so Pheebs and I were up there and back this morning after our morning walk. Mowed some grass.
IT WAS A MIGHTY FINE SATURDAY MORNING FOR A SLOW DRIVE THROUGH THE COUNTRYSIDE BY 10 O'CLOCK THIS MORNING THERE WERE ALREADY A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT WALKING ALONG GODERICH'S BOARDWALK A PENNY FOR HER THOUGHTS I THINK THIS GROUP OF BEACHGOERS MAY HAVE COME FROM AS FAR AWAY AS TORONTO A NICE SOLID LOOKING BUICK FROM YESTERYEAR

I haven't been too adventurous in my eating habits this past week. Kelly left a lot of meatloaf in the fridge so I've been fixing up single slice meatloaf sandwiches and dunking them in ketchup. Peanut butter is my mainstay and tonight I rustled myself up some mashed potatoes with gravy, turkey with dressing, and corn. Five minutes in the microwave and my Swanson Hungry Man turkey dinner was done. It was too much for me to eat so I had to share with my best Pal. As I've said before, I do not have a big appetite anymore and big meals are thankfully a thing of the past for me. I'm quite happy with that because it is a big help in keeping my weight down.
|A LOT OF BEANFIELDS THIS YEAR|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Three priests died and came up to St. Peter at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter looked up the priests and informed them there had been a mistake; they were not supposed to die for another 10 years or so. The priests were upset about this and asked St. Peter what could be done. St. Peter said that he would send them back to earth in any form they wanted until the problem was fixed. St Peter asks the first priest, " What do you want to become?" and the first priest replies," I always wanted to be an eagle and see all of God's creation from above." "Done." St. Peter snaps his fingers and the first priest disappears. St. Peter asks the second priest, "What do you want to become?" and the second priest replies, "I always wanted to be a dolphin and see all of God's creation from under the sea." "Done." St Peter snaps his fingers and the second priest disappears like the first. St. Peter asks the third priest, "What do you want to become?"" and the third priest shyly says, "Well... my wish is kind of sinful." "No matter. You can choose any form you want." St. Peter says and the third priest replies, "Well, I always wanted to be a...stud, you know?" St .Peter replies, "I don't see a problem with that." St. Peter snaps his fingers and the third priest disappears. Later, Jesus asked St. Peter, " I heard there was a problem with three priests being here before their time. Where are they?" St. Peter explained, "One is soaring high above the Grand Canyon. The second is swimming in the North Atlantic. The third is on the left rear wheel of a Chevy Blazer."
"You should meet my husband. He makes a living with his pen." "Oh, so he's a writer?" "No, he raises pigs."
My goodness, Al, that last paragraph about the "great American Southwest" was pure nostalgia and rose-colored glasses. You are lucky to have a Great Lake in your neighborhood and green agricultural fields.ReplyDelete
Actually the Southwest is pretty green right now because they finally had a good monsoon season. But by late September it will be brown and bleak again.
Your paragraph about watching the night skies (the ones here in Ontario) just took me out the with you.ReplyDelete
Your writing becomes beautiful when you describe the desert, I hope you get to see it againReplyDelete

I'd like to comment about what a handsome couple Sean and Kim are and that their photographer caught them wonderfully. I looked at that picture for quite a while even though I don't know them.ReplyDelete
Your son sure does resemble his Dad, especially the eyes. A lovely photo of the two of them.ReplyDelete
As always enjoyed the other photos and your commentary.
I believe that by the time October/November rolls around you will be able to cross the Canada/US border. And of that’s the case you should feel perfectly safe heading back to Arizona/SoCal. Despite what the media may portray, people are not dying in the streets south of the border. I am sufficiently familiar with your style of travel (which is quite similar to ours) and trust that so long as you are vaccinated, wear your mask in the grocery store, and stay out of those all night discotheques ( ;-) ) you will be perfectly safe.ReplyDelete
It sure shows how you miss the desert southwest, and it sure does miss you too!ReplyDelete
Hope the three of you make it again soon.
You make me feel ashamed.that I live in the middlebof all this natural beauty and yet I spend too much time on my phone and computer. I would be much better off if I got off the couch and went outside. Thanks for a wakeup nudge.ReplyDelete
