Under bright sunny skies, it was a 116-mile round road trip for Pheebs and I this morning. It all started yesterday afternoon when I noticed something for sale on Facebook's marketplace. We have an older Magnavox stereo receiver that powered a couple big speakers. I bought those speakers used way back sometime in the mid-'80s. The speakers finally wore out nearly five years ago and I just never got around to replacing them. Well, that is until I saw a couple speakers along with a subwoofer for sale on Facebook's marketplace for $20. I messaged the lady and she still had the speakers so Pheebs and were into the Jeep about 9 a.m. heading for Palmerston Ontario about 56 miles from Bayfield. A couple stops along the way and we were there about 10:55. Paid the lady and loaded up the speakers and woofer. Pointed the Jeeps nose into the wily west wind and we were on our way home.
|AFTER THIS LAST BATCH OF COLD WET WEATHER IT WAS NICE TO START OUR DAY WITH SUNSHINE|
|NICE TO SEE OUR ROADS BARE AND DRY AGAIN|
|'UGH' HUNTING SEASON:((|
|MADE IT TO PALMERSTON AND LOADED UP THE SPEAKERS AND SUBWOOFER|
|ON OUR WAYH HOME|
Our scenic route home took us through Mennonite country so I was able to snap a few photos along the way. Sure is nice rolling hill country where those folks are.
|IT LOOKS LIKE FRIDAYS ARE LAUNDRY DAYS IN MENNONITE COUNTRY|
|I WONDER HOW MANY MENNONITE FAMILIES LIVE IN THAT LONG STRETCHED OUT HOUSE|
|SOME OF MY PHOTOS TODAY ARE A LITTLE SHAKY BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN TAKEN FROM A MOVING VEHICLE|
|MOTORING ALONG YOU CAN SEE PHEEBS EAR FLAPPING IN THE AIR|

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A preacher visits an elderly woman from his congregation. As he sits on the couch, he notices a large bowl of peanuts on the coffee table. "Mind if I have a few?" he asks. "No, not at all!" the woman replied. They chat for an hour and, as the preacher stands to leave, he realizes that instead of eating just a few peanuts, he emptied most of the bowl. "I'm terribly sorry for eating all your peanuts. I really just meant to eat a few." "Oh, that's all right," the woman says. "Ever since I lost my teeth, all I can do is suck the chocolate off them anyway."
Fred: I’ve invented a truck that runs on water.
Ed: Why does it have such huge balloon tires?
Fred: So it can run on water.
