Arriving at our walking spot Tuesday evening I couldn't believe for the second time in a row we couldn't park at our favorite spot. No, not the farmer there this time but a black convertible car with the top down and a guy sitting there yakking on his cell phone. And this on a short road where we rarely see another vehicle. Sheeeeesh!! We moved forward up the road and parked in a different spot which enabled us to walk a section of the country road we hadn't walked before. A beautiful evening for the last day of August and cool enough for me to have a touch of heat on in the Jeep. Keep in mind that we do travel with Pheebs window down most of the time winter or summer.

Decided to change things up a bit this morning so I fired up our little Class C Winnebago Itasca Spirit instead of the Jeep and off we went. First for a walk and then off to Goderich. I'm due for another PSA test (prostate cancer) so I swung around the Dynacare blood lab but there was a line-up so that was the end of that. We headed down to the harbor and beach areas before making our way home. I'll try that Dynacare lab another day.

In my books, it was a perfect weather day. Sunny, 72F, and a nice light breeze. Puttered around outside for a while mowing some backyard grass. It was around 2 this afternoon when one of my old Tavistock buddies dropped in. I knew Craig Wilker was coming because over the past 10 years or so Craig has dropped in about the same time of the Zurich Bean Festival in Zurich. We've known each other from our mischievous young boy's era. It was Craig and I who one dark Sunday night in May of 1962 climbed up the steel girder leg of the hundred-plus foot Tavistock water tower and wrote our names on the side of the tank. Ya, we got into a little bit of trouble over that one. Oh gee, I wonder how the town found out eh. Had us our usual great chat and with a bit of luck maybe we'll be able to do it all over again next year at this time.

I am so totally enjoying our cooler temps. Lows tonight will be 57F with Thursday's high to be 66F. I may soon have to kick on the sunroom's fireplace and that is quite alright with me:))

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A New York family bought a ranch out west where they intended to raise cattle. Friends came to visit and asked if the ranch had a name. "Well," said the would-be-cattleman, "I wanted to call it the Bar-J, my wife favored the Suzy-Q, one son liked the Flying-W, and the other son wanted the Lazy-Y. So, we're calling it the Bar-J-Suzy-Q-Flying-W-Lazy-Y." "But, where are all your cattle?" "None have survived the branding", answered the new cattleman.
You can turn your ordinary sofa into a sofa bed simply by forgetting your wife’s birthday.
When I was married, my wife used to call me handsome. As a matter of fact, we are now divorced but she STILL calls me handsome. Every time I have some money, she says, HANDSOME OVER.
Wonderful photos again. It's a rare bird, photoblogger, who can produce such good photos AND interesting narrative. But you do. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Love the sky/clouds pics; also, I did see the fish, and in that pic I also see a shark and a mermaid kneeling to pray...ReplyDelete
Took me awhile to find Lincoln, but find him, I did. Fun looking for what you see. Also fun seeing the "dashing" young men in the photo. Dont know which is harder to accept----the change in us as we age, or the change in the world around us. Train long gone, now Tim Horton's.ReplyDelete
Once again lovely, lovely photos. Great shot of Miss Pheebs as the Navigator.ReplyDelete
I too love fall and September is my favorite month--I was done with summer in June! Our temp this morning was 39 degrees! Really like that old photo of you and your friend when young.ReplyDelete

Well, OK. But please be careful up there.
Great sunset shots!ReplyDelete
