Running the full length from north to south on the west side of our country walking road is a field of soybeans. Or, I should say, was a field of soybeans. Friday evening when Pheebs and I arrived at our walking spot about 6:45 I saw the field was in the process of being harvested. Lots of dust as a big John Deere combine made its way back and forth across the field scooping up all the beans.

| TURNING ONTO OUR WALKING ROAD FRIDAY NIGHT I SAW THIS COMBINE UNLOADING BEANS INTO A WAITING TRUCK|
|MINUTES AFTER BEGINNING OUR WALK I HEARD THE COMBINE COMING BEHIND US|
| IT'S QUITE A CREW THE COMBINE OPERATOR HAS WITH HIM INSIDE THE ENCLOSED CAB|
Saturday I couldn't seem to amass enough brain cells in any kind of a creative way to put a blog together so the day went down the tubes before I knew it had even left.
| HARVESTING BEANS IS A DUSTY BIT OF BUSINESS|

| BEANS ALL GONE NOW|

Sunday morning a low cloud cover hung over us complete with drizzly rain and a fine mist. No walk for us guys so we splashed our way over to Clinton's Tim Hortons for a coffee and rare carrot muffin treat to go.

After our Saturday night walk, Pheebs and I headed home the long way through Varna. Coming through Bayfield we drove down the main street and I was surprised to see it so busy. Not a parking space to be had. Lots of people out and about enjoying the patio restaurants along the street. And all that food smelled so good. Lineups at the two ice cream shops too. Tonight (Sunday) Pheebs and I went out for supper and tracked us down a hamburger and fries at Bayfield's Woodland Drive-In in Bayfield's south end.
| THIS MORNINGS CLOUDS WERE SITTING ON THE POWER TOWERS|
| SUNDAY AFTERNOON SUPPER OUT|An overnight cloud cover held Saturday's warmer air from escaping so our temps remained in the high 60's this morning and we were able to wind our windows down after the rain backed off a bit. Despite the clouds sitting on top of the power towers it was a nice morning to be out and about in the countryside.
| OKAY YOU CAR GUYS,,,WHAT IS THE MAKE AND YEAR OF THIS PICK-UP TRUCK|
|I REALLY LIKE THESE CURVED REAR CORNER WINDOWS|

It's been slightly over a year now that I have been reading about the whole UFO and extraterrestrial thing and I have pretty much come around full circle to where I started out from. A big question mark still stands right in front of me staring me in the face. I certainly know a lot more now than I did a year ago, but..... Having said that I would like to retract a word I had used when reading these 50+ books. I wrongly stated several times that by doing all this reading I was doing research. Wrong!! I was simply reading the books and gathering information and that can hardly be called research in the true meaning of the word. This mistake came to light recently when I saw several in-depth explanations of the word 'research' in reference to covid. Simply reading books or going online to look something up hardly qualifies as true research. It's a misused word that has been caught up in especially this current covid era and been loosely bantered about out of context.
Due to a change in plans and Kelly's mother continuing to decline Kelly didn't head for home today and has decided to wait it out for as long as she can. Disappointing for Pheebs and I but I do understand the difficult situation Kelly is in over there in Spencerport, New York. The whole covid thing and Canada/US border restrictions have really complicated things for Kelly as well.
Pheebs and I are fine and luckily have a nice cozy little place to stay here at home. With my hobbies of photography, writing, reading, music, and travel I am able to keep myself reasonably busy for the most part. With my introverted lifestyle, I never feel alone or lonely so I guess I am one of the lucky ones. I can cook if necessary, and I've been doing my own laundry for years. I know which end of a vacuum cleaner is the floor end and I don't let dirty dishes pile up. I even know how to take the garbage out and mow the grass. Now how's that for a big bag of apples eh:))
GROANER'S CORNER:(( The old lady was standing at the railing of the cruise ship holding her hat on tight so that it would not blow off in the wind. A gentleman approached her and said: “Pardon me, madam. I do not intend to be forward, but did you know that your dress is blowing up in this high wind?” “Yes, I know,” said the lady, “I need both hands to hold onto this hat.” “But, madam, you must know that your privates are exposed!” said the gentleman in earnest. The woman looked down, then back up at the man and replied, “Sir, anything you see down there is 85 years old. I just bought this hat yesterday!”

I threw a ball for my dog...It's a bit extravagant I know, but it was his birthday and he looks great in a Tuxedo.
Loving the old truck pics! Hugs to you and Kelly.ReplyDelete
Wonderful photos again. I am so glad you like taking photos and sharing them with the rest of us. A lovely autumn, and I am sorry that Kelly is having going to and fro all complicated, which she might have done in this situation pre-covid.ReplyDelete
Love the fall photos and especially the ones of flock of sheep - but of course Miss Pheebs is the star. Thoughts and prayers with Kelly's Mom and the entire family.ReplyDelete
I hopped to you from F G. Kelly, these days with your Mum will be long and difficult, but giving your love and time is the greatest gift of all. Remind me to never buy a new hat, at 81 I can laugh at the first groaner's words.ReplyDelete
Those bean combines sure do raise a lot of dust! Sorry Kelly can't get home, hope she does ok down there.ReplyDelete
