How nice to see an early morning sunrise through our snowy pine trees. Sunshine was on its way heralding another sunny day.
|MORNING SUNRISE THROUGH THE PINES|
|HEADING OUT THE DRIVEWAY|
|WE EVEN GOT TO SEE 'OLD LONESOME' THIS MORNING|
|PHEEBS ENJOYS THE SCENERY AS MUCH AS I DO|
Needing to pick up a prescription at the Walmart Pharmacy in Goderich, Pheebs and I headed north on an icy snow-covered road. Four-wheel drive comes in handy on these kinds of roads adding stability. Monday's snowfall-covered trees and fields made for a wintery wonderland.
|ICE AND SNOW PACKED ROADS|
|THERE'S PHEEBS AT THE SOLO GAS BAR WAITING FOR THE GAS LADY TO GIVE HER A TREAT|
|A MORNING'S WINTER WALK|
|SAW A FEW DOG WALKERS OUT AND ABOUT|
|THIS DOGGY IS SITTING NICE WHILE HAVING ITS PICTURE TAKEN|
|I SHOULD HAVE A BUMPER STICKER SAYING 'THIS JEEP STOPS FOR GOOSES'|
|DESPITE THE HARBOR ICE THIS POWERFUL TUGBOAT CAN EASILY BREAK IT UP|
|I THINK THIS LAKE FREIGHTER IS BADLY IN NEED OF A FRESH NEW PAINT JOB|
|HEADING HOME THE SUN'S WARMING RAYS WERE QUICKLY MELTING THE ROAD'S ICE AND SNOW|
|BECAUSE OF THE TALL PINE TREES IN OUR PARK, THE SNOW IS ALWAYS THE LAST TO MELT IN OUR AREA AND ESPECIALLY IN OUR DRIVEWAY|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( During a terrible storm, all the highway signs were covered with snow. The following spring, the state decided to raise all the signs twelve inches at a cost of six million dollars. “That’s an outrageous price!” said a local farmer, “but I guess we’re lucky the state handled it instead of the federal government.” “Why’s that?” “Because knowing the federal government, they’d decided to lower the highways.”
I went back home last week and happened to see one of my old teachers, Mrs. Turtle. She was a bit odd, but tortoise well.
