|I THOUGHT THAT MUST HAVE BEEN SOME KIND OF A STUMPY TREE ROOT CAUGHT IN THE ICE|
|ZOOMED IN FOR A CLOSER LOOK I SEE THAT IT IS THE SPACE LEFT AFTER A CHUNK OF ICE BROKE OFF THE SOUTH BAYFIELD PIER|
|COMPARED TO SATURDAY I WAS SURPRISED AT HOW MUCH OPEN WATER WAS VISIBLE ON THE HORIZON|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A farmer purchases an old, run-down, abandoned farm with plans to turn it into a thriving enterprise. The fields are grown over with weeds, the farmhouse is falling apart, and the fences are collapsing all around. During his first day of work, the town preacher stops by to bless the man's work, saying, "May you and God work together to make this the farm of your dreams!"A few months later, the preacher stops by again to call on the farmer. Lo and behold, it's like a completely different place--the farmhouse is completely rebuilt and in excellent condition, there are plenty of cattle and other livestock happily munching on feed in well-fenced pens, and the fields are filled with crops planted in neat rows. "Amazing!" the preacher says. "Look what God and you have accomplished together!""Yes, reverend," says the farmer, "but remember what the farm was like when God was working it alone!"
Husband: Honey, I broke a glass in the kitchen.
Wife: I am coming with the broom.
Husband: It’s not urgent. You can come on foot.
Nice temperatures these!ReplyDelete
Glad to hear it's warming up a bit. It doesn't take much to break up the ice when there really has been a good freeze.ReplyDelete
Good to learn you are going to have a bit of a warmup. So are we. Yea. Meanwhile, since you've finished a book, I'm going to remind you again of a series ( I do love a series) by a Canadian, Mazo de la Roche, about a Canadian family. It was a big hit at the time in the USA too...Jalna was the first one. I started reading it because I thought it might be set in India. Ha. Not so. In Canada. But I got interested and read them all. OK. I promise I won't mention it again...it's not heavy stuff, but takes one to a time and place long ago to live for a while.....I personally don't think there's anything wrong with making an escape from daily life sometimes!ReplyDelete
