We eventually ended up at the George G Newton Nature Reserve whereupon we had us a wee walk on a muddy forest trail. Had I not head on my summer shoes we might well have gone farther. I just didn't have a lot of traction in the mud and wet slippery leaves.

|A GNARLY OLD TREE|
My attention soon became focused on a gnarly old tree alongside the trail that we have passed by many times before. The light was just right today for a few old gnarly tree photos.

The Hunt For Planet B'. I don't suppose many folks will know about the upcoming launch next month of the 'James Webb Space Telescope but this documentary revolves around the story behind this largest ever built telescope about to be launched into outer space on December 18th. I think they said this new telescope has a hundred times the power of the current Hubble Space Telescope up there now. The documentary touches on earth's past history, present times, and what the future may hold for mankind, and the story is woven together exceptionally well. I recommend this uplifting documentary. It's a quality piece and all the people are real. No over-the-top dramatic actors!! And, as an aside to the story.....there is a lady SETI Scientist in this documentary that reminded me right away of an RV lady many of us knew before she passed away a few years ago. Her name was Judy and we all referred to her as the Birdlady of Blogland. This lady Scientist even looks like Judy so if you watch the documentary, keep an eye out for her.
Our Saskatchewan RV Blogger friend Ivan from Ivan And Hailey's RV Adventures is making his way down the California coast at the moment heading for the Southwest. Ivan takes great photos of his travels and some of them are aerial views from his drone. Hailey is Ivan's 3 legged cat who lost one of her legs several winters ago. Ivan is one of the many Bloggers we first met way back in our early RVing days. He is a former Park Warden retired from Parks Canada. You can also find Ivan on Facebook here at Ivan and Hailey
A brunette, wanting to earn some extra money, decided to hire herself out as a "handy-woman" and started canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighborhood. She went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to do. "Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint my porch," he said, "How much will you charge me?" The brunette quickly responded, "How about $50?" The man agreed and told her that the paint and everything she would need was in the garage. The man's wife, hearing the conversation, said to her husband, "Does she realize that our porch goes all the way around the house?" He responded, "That's a bit cynical, isn't it?" The wife replied, "You're right. I guess I'm starting to believe all those 'dumb brunette' jokes we've been getting by e-mail lately." A short time later, the brunette came to the door to collect her money. "You've finished already?" the husband asked. "Yes," the brunette replied, "and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats." Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50.00 and handed it to her. "And by the way," the brunette added, "it's not a Porch, it's a Lexus."
After picking up food for his daughter's cat, George spied a new bowl for the pet and grabbed it too. "Shall I have the cat's name written on the side of the bowl?" offered the store owner. "No, don't bother," replied George. "He can't read anyway."
