Pheebs and I headed out this morning to check on our area roads. Highway 21 was bare and dry and the secondary paved roads and country gravel roads were all plowed. It wasn't snowing and with no wind to kick up the snow already on the ground, visibility was clear from horizon to horizon. The only thing left from the Thursday afternoon cold front roaring through is the cold.

Kelly needed to get something printed so Pheebs and I drove her to the Library in Bayfield. Main Street was pretty quiet but a few shops were in the process of opening for the day.
| PHEEBS PATIENTLY WAITS FOR MOM TO COME OUT|
| AND HERE SHE COMES|
|COMING OUT OF THE LIBRARY KELLY NOTICES SOMEONE STANDING DOWN THE STREET|
| WELL WELL IT'S ADMIRAL BAYFIELD HIMSELF|
| IT WAS QUITE THE CONVERSATION KELLY HAD WITH THE ADMIRAL ON THIS FROSTY MORN:))|
| THIS LITTLE FELLER HAD HIS FANCY SNOW BOOTS ON|
Despite starting the day out at 17F I noticed a very slow temperature rise beginning around mid-morning. Skies brightened with our first Sun splash of the day landing in our yard at 12:06 p.m. I felt it was time for wild celebrations so not wanting to waste that sunshine I slipped out the door, grabbed my snow shovel, and proceeded to once again happily trip around the yard re-arranging all the snow again.

| LAKE HURON'S SHORE ICE STRETCHES TO THE HORIZON|In Canada here we have a half-hour TV show called, Still Standing featuring actor and comedian, Jonny Harris. It's not a sitcom but here is a brief description of what it is. This particular well-done production takes a good look at Goderich and viewers will get a better idea of the town and its people. Blog readers can see where Pheebs and I often cruise around down by the harbor and beach areas. The Still Standing camera folks along with the show's host also went down 2,800 feet under Lake Huron to have a look at the world's largest salt mine. The video starts off with two mandatory commercials before it gets rolling plus a few commercials along the way. I was unable to determine when the Goderich segment was filmed but there are two things of note. The host, Jonny Harris, talks about Goderich's 2011 tornado but failed to mention one life was sadly lost on that day. Also in the segment, John Grace, the town's mayor is interviewed. John Grace later died in a tragic drowning accident in the summer of 2022.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. "Careful," he said, "CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my GOD! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my GOD! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful . CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!" The wife stared at him. "What in the world is wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?" The husband calmly replied, "I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm driving."

My friend reviewed her young son’s fill-in-the-blank homework. One line: “At Christmas, we exchange gifts with ___________.” His response: “Receipts.”
Be sure to watch this video.....Dogs Love Winter
I really like that program. They have filmed a couple of episodes in our county too. I know they film a LOT more than ever makes it to air.ReplyDelete
I thought of you when I was watching that episode last week. I really enjoy the show.ReplyDelete
I love the photos of the back of Pheebs' head. Waiting for Kelly, her ears are up. When Kelly appears, the ears go down. Such a sweet dog she is.ReplyDelete
And how is re-arranging the snow a celebration?ReplyDelete
I don't mind shoveling snow although I'm finding it a bit more of a physical challenge each year. It's a good way for me to get some much needed mental and physical exercise in the winter and when I see that 'feeling good' sunshine outside on winter days it's an inspiring reason for me to get out there and do something useful. Shoveling the sidewalk, the area around the bird feeders and my creative paths around the property make it easier to get around not only for me, but Kelly and Pheebs as well. And the meter reader too:))ReplyDelete
