A touch of fog in this morning's air as Pheebs and I rolled out of our Park heading east to our walking area. The misty landscape had an ephemeral feeling to it making it one of those memorable mornings that stays with one for a long time.

It was about high noon when Pheebs and I rolled Scooter out of her parking area and took it for an exercise run over to Holmesville and back. Maybe one of these days instead of coming back in about 20 minutes we can keep on going and going for a few months. Well now, that is wishful thinking isn't it. Next week they will once again likely announce that the border opening will be pushed back another month again. Maybe just as well with the way things are south of the border. As much as we like the 'good things' America has to offer, I am so glad we live in Canada.
Saw an article saying area farmers are expecting a bumper crop and possibly record-breaking yields for soybeans and corn this year. Looking at all the healthy fields around here I would be inclined to agree with them.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( During World War two, 3 people, Michael, Sam, and Ben were captured by the Germans. They will be sentenced to death by shooting, one after the other. Fortunately, Michael came up with a plan. He told the others that the Germans were afraid of natural disasters. So he would cause them to panic, and escape while they were in confusion. The next morning, Michael was led to the wall. The firing squad was lined up and the Captain commanded, "Ready... Aim...", but before he could complete, Micheal shouted, "Earthquake! Earthquake!" The German soldiers panicked and Michael escaped. Later, the soldiers took Sam out and the firing squad was ready. The captain commanded, "Ready... Aim..." This time Sam shouted, "Flood! Flood!" Again, the soldiers panicked and this time, Sam made his escape. Observing all this, Ben began to get the idea. "It's important to get the timing right." Soon, it was Ben's turn. The soldiers lined up in front of him. The captain started, "Ready..." "Aim..." Ben shouted, 'FIRE" "FIRE"
Q: How did the bishop make holy water?
A: He took some tap water and boiled the hell out of it.
Beautiful, beautiful musical interlude. What a wonderful talent.ReplyDelete
Loved your photos tonight Al.
I have never heard a vocal version of Clare de Lune before. They were wise to have the piano accompanist. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.ReplyDelete
I am glad that this post shows a proper appreciation for what you have close to home -- instead of your escapist schemes for going to the "Great American Southwest."
Happiness & Peace can come when you " Bloom where you're planted.!" Thanks Al, for sharing your thoughts & the beauty all around you. Blessings to Kelly & her Mom in these tough times.ReplyDelete
We are fulltimer RVers in the USA. From May-september we have a nice site in Ohio, where all our family is close. Our site is in Rural Ohio about 30 miles from the Lake. We just took a Northeast trip, and we are currently in Maine. Maine is nice, and we spent 4 days in NYC. NYC is a madhouse. Fortunately we will leave Maine and go back to Ohio for a few weeks, the off to the West.ReplyDelete
I think your area is wonderful, but I'm not sure you would be glad to be in Canada if you were forced to live in Toronto.
NYC, TORONTO, PARIS, ROME... they would not suit me or you.
Any big suburb or city has the same problems. The U.S. just gets pointed at more. We have traveled to the same places all through this Pandemic. Aside from restaurant choices nothing much has changed. The biggest problems we have in the World are due to politicians and people in power all over the world. The USA is still a great place to live as is Canada.
A beautiful morning and such richness of crops, including apples! I am envious of the latter. Probably tart and crisp, right? Ah, you people who live around apples can't imagine.ReplyDelete
