KELLY WAITS AT THE HALFWAY POINT WHILE PHEEBS AND I GO DOWN THE HILLA LITTLE FARTHER THE OLD-GROWTH FOREST IS BEAUTIFUL DOWN HERE NEAR THE RIVER I WENT AS FAR AS THAT CURVE THEN HEADED BACK UP THE HILL HEADING BACK UP THE ROAD IT WAS SO NICE TO HEAR ALL THE BIRDS SINGING IN THE HIGH TREE TOP CANOPY
A nice walk and a short drive around the countryside this morning for Pheebs and I. We are so fortunate to live in the area we do. With our Park located in the countryside and not near any heavily populated cities, traffic is never really a problem. Rural farms in the area are mostly, cattle, pigs, horses, chickens, and sheep. The crops grown are corn, soybeans, and wheat with a smattering of barley, clover, alfalfa, and sunflowers, etc.

Rain was predicted for today but it didn't happen so I had to haul out the garden hose and sprinkler to give my 'new grass' area a soaking. Not as hot and humid today so I trimmed some overgrown bushes and Kelly watered the front flowerbed by the road. She has been feeling pretty good these past four or five days.

Certainly not as many birds at the feeders as in wintertime so that's a big help with our annual birdseed bill. Grackles are still the dominant birdseed eaters followed by Nuthatches, Mourning Doves, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Cowbirds, Red Wing Blackbirds, Downie Woodpeckers, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks, and Black-Capped Chickadees.
A PEACEFUL SETTING ON A QUIET SUNDAY MORNING
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A foursome approached the sixteenth tee. The straight fairway ran along a road and bike path fenced off on the left. The first golfer teed off and hooked the ball in that direction. But the ball went over the fence and bounced off the bike path onto the road, where it hit the tire of a moving bus and was knocked back onto the fairway. As they all stood in silent amazement, one man finally asked him, “How on earth did you do that?” He shrugged his shoulders and said, “You have to know the bus schedule.”

I have not read your blog or any for a long time due to us learning how to use a Sprinter EEE Leisure Tyme after years of a Class A. We really love the great wood work and nice layout. We did have a fun time but very little wifi use. Sad to hear all the pains Kelly has gone through. Hope she bounces back well soon. Camping in Alaska this Summer and enjoying nice weather.ReplyDelete
Nice to hear from you Tom. I think your Leisure RV may have been made in Winkler Manitoba. When we had our Class A Triple EEE Commander we were lucky enough to tour the plant in Winkler half a dozen years ago or so. At the time they were in the transition period to making the smaller Leisure vans. Just finished a great book you might like. It's about Alaska's legendary native bush pilot, 'Jorgy Jorgensen.Delete
Lovely photos tonight. Your walk in the forest just seemed like it was so peaceful and calm. Know that it was made extra special with Kelly being able to join you and Miss Pheebs.Delete
So glad to see Kelly on a walk with you and Pheebs. And a beautiful forest to walk through!ReplyDelete
