It was a rare occurrence but I think the great weather Gods looked down and decided to give me a short break by dropping this morning's temperature by about 10 degrees. All the words meaning the same as marvelous came to mind as Pheebs and merrily skipped our way along on our walk.

Needing to renew one of my prescriptions we headed off to Goderich. Half a tank of gas cost $85 this morning and of course, McDonalds has added ten cents for a Seniors coffee bringing that small cup up to $1:35. Down to the harbor we went where two ships were in port with one loading salt and the other grain. With tourist season now upon us along the shores of Lake Huron, there were a lot more people and vehicles around. It's easy to spot the city folks because they are the ones always in a frenzied hurry flurry. It's too bad they bring their big-city morning rush hour traffic habits with them. Tailgating horn blowers I calls em!!

Home again and while temperatures were still civilized, it was time to take Scooter for a run. But, there was a problem. Scoot's battery was stone dead so I had to haul out the cables and jump-start it with the Jeep. Took the rig for a spin over to Holmesville and back which is a 22-mile round trip. The rig ran perfectly, but upon arriving home, when I tried to start it, the battery was dead again. Looks like one new battery coming up. Temperatures were still reasonable so I felt energized enough to give Scooter a complete wash job. By the time I finished nearly an hour later the temps and humidity had risen and turned me into a sticky ball of paste. I had to head straight away inside to the shower and get myself feeling reasonably humanish again. As I post this tonight, it is raining. Yay team, that will cool things down and I already can hear all the plants outside giggling:))
| IT WAS A NICE DAY FOR FOLKS TO TAKE A DRIVE TO THE BEACH|

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A husband is advised by a psychiatrist to assert himself. "You don't have to let your wife henpeck you! Go home and show her you are the boss!" Of course, the husband takes the doctor's advice. He rushes home, slams the door, shakes his fist in his wife's face, and growls, "From now on, you're taking orders from me! I want my supper right now and when you get it on the table, go upstairs and lay out my best clothes. Tonight, I'm going out with the boys and you are going to stay at home where you belong! And another thing... guess who's going to comb my hair, give me a shave, and tie my necktie?" His redheaded wife says calmly, "The undertaker."
