|HEADING HOME FROM GODERICH THIS AFTERNOON|
Not a nice weather day. With temps hovering just above the freezing mark we had a combination of snow and rain coming down creating a cold dampness that just goes through your clothes and gets ya. A few sunny breaks early on but that soon ended. The rainy snow continued for the whole rest of the day with hardly a let-up.

Had to go to Clinton this morning and as so often happens with this type of weather it just got worse the further inland Pheebs and I went. We were soon on slippery slushy roads so I quickly slipped the Jeep into 4-wheel drive which immediately improved the handling. I decided a few days ago to put our heavier winter/desert tires on the Jeep for this winter so it goes into Clinton's Tirecraft on November 16th to do the tire switch. Pheebs goes to the Groomer on November 17th for her pre-winter spiff-up.

|TURNING RIGHT ONTO THE HIGHWAY HEADING FOR CLINTON I COULD DEFINITELY SEE MORE SNOW|
| WITHIN A FEW MILES THE WEATHER BEGAN TO TURN NASTY|

|HEADING BACK TO BAYFIELD I COULD SEE THE WEATHER IMPROVING AHEAD|
|IT WAS SURE LOOKING NICER CLOSER TO HOME|
I've noticed the anti-freeze level dropping and disappearing in our RV the last few times I've had it for a run so I stopped at the Bayfield Garage this morning to make an appointment to have them check the system for a leak. It goes in early on November 19th.

With it being cold, wet, and nasty out I mainly stayed inside again except for a mid-afternoon drive up to Goderich and back. It was just me in the Jeep this time as I headed to the Dynacare blood lab for a 2:30 PSA blood work appointment. (re. prostrate cancer) I should have had this appointment sooner but kept forgetting about it. I hope to have the results Thursday.

With the Jeep being overdue for an oil change I stopped into the Napa garage behind the Jeep dealer while in Goderich and booked an appointment for the afternoon of November 19th to have that done.

| AT LEAST THE ROADS WERE IN BETTER SHAPE HEADING BACK|
Well, at least a few things are happening here and we have stuff coming up to occupy our time. It sure helps to chase these boring November blues away. Oh, and also throw into that mix an Exeter dental appointment for Kelly as well as a Goderich Dynacar blood test too. I know it's grasping at straws to keep ourselves focused but sometimes it's the little things that help one get over the humps and bumps.
| NOW HOW'S THIS FOR NATURAL CHRISTMAS COLORS|
| I HAD ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SONGS GOING THROUGH MY HEAD HERE...SLEIGH RIDE|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A man goes to see the dentist and asks "How much to pull two wisdom teeth?" The Dentist says "$100.00. Man says, "too much. Can't you do it for less?" Dentist says "I can do it for $50 if I cut out the novocaine." The man says, "that's better but still too much. Can't we do it any cheaper?" Dentist says, "I could let my trainee do it for $20 but she has never pulled a tooth before and it would be quite painful." The man says, "That's great. Schedule my wife for next Tuesday."
The Cajun menu offered a vast fish selection: Blackened redfish, orange roughy, pink salmon, browned yellowtail...Yet with a carefree, colorblind cook, we all ended up with Rainbow trout.
Whoa! Already. Well, not being there I can admire how beautiful it is. Winters here are brown. And grey. And cold often, only rarely redeemed by some snow. And fortunately, not afflicted with ice!ReplyDelete
Al, I consider you one of the best nature photographer artists I know of. Your efforts are constantly superior in my opinion. Thank you very much for your efforts.ReplyDelete
Terrific photos again tonight. My favorite was the "Sleigh Ride" photo which is also one of my most favorite Christmas time songs.ReplyDelete
Al, I still read you, but not every post. Always the greatest!ReplyDelete
You always amaze us, AL. Keep up the good work!ReplyDelete
The water is still warm enough to have input into the weather for you folks. Like you I'm not looking forward to winter but in order to get to spring we need to pass through winter, so I am trying to look at as a stepping stone to the next place I want to be.ReplyDelete
Love the photos Al!
