We sure are enjoying this nice run of sunny weather and with each day becoming warmer it certainly puts the icing on the cake. With the utility trailer unhooked, Pheebs and I were once again back into the Jeep for our morning excursion around a few of the area's country roads.
| THIS RESIDENT FROG SPENT THE WINTER IN OUR FRONT YARD POND|
|TINY FLOWERS IN THE GRASS |With a neighbor lady needing a pile of yard waste hauled away, I hooked up the utility trailer to the Jeep after we got home. Slipped over to the neighbors and loaded it up with pine needles and branches and headed off to our Park's recycle area, to unload it. All went well and my leg didn't give me too much grief. After a break for lunch, I was able to get our front yard pond pump up and running so we now have the sounds of a waterfall again. I also wheelbarrowed out some more summer lawn ornaments and managed to clean a short section of eavestrough on our back deck. However, by 1 o'clock my legs sent my brain a message saying it was time to shut it down for the day. My energy level meter had slipped into the red zone and it was time to give my lower extremities a rest and recharge my batteries. Kelly was having a cup of tea on the front porch so I sat down as well. It's the first time this year that the weather has been nice enough for a little outside sit down. Nice:))
| PICKING UP SOME PINE NEEDLES AND BRANCHES THIS MORNING|
Driving along in the Jeep this morning with my hand at the top of the steering wheel I happened to notice a curious mark on the back of my right wrist. It wasn't there Monday and I have no idea what could have made a mark like that. Okay all you seriously knowledgable UFO enthusiasts.....any thoughts??
| ALL DONE TIME TO GO HOME|Later in the afternoon with batteries recharged Pheebs and I along with my camera and my cane took a walk over by the pond. Moving along slowly on the east side of the pond I was suddenly startled by a great whoosh and whopping sound in front of me just to the right. 'OMG' I thought, the sky is falling!! Nope, it was a Mother Goose suddenly lifting off a nest of eggs about six feet from me. Pheebs had walked right by the nest about twenty seconds ahead of me and never saw it and Mother Goose never flinched a feather. I didn't approach any closer to the nest but quickly took a couple pics before hastily vacating the area so Mama Goose could get back on the nest. Pheebs and I moved around to the other side of the pond and headed back home.......Compared to the past 4 days it was a good day for my right leg and hip area. Sore, yes but I didn't have that short sharp jabbing pain in my right groin today. You don't suppose my mind has found out about the Doctor's appointment next Monday morning and is running scared do ya??
| THIS IS THE NEST THE CANADA GOOSE FLEW OFF OF|
| THAT'S MAMA GOOSE OUT ON THE POND AND THE NEST IS AT THE LOWER LEFT|
| I THINK THAT IS PAPA GOOSE ON THE LEFT AND MAMA GOOSE ON THE RIGHT AND IF YOU LOOK JUST ABOVE CENTER IN THE PHOTO YOU WILL SEE ONE OF THE GOOSE EGGS APPEARING AS A WHITE DOT|
|AND I SPOTTED THE PARK'S MUDWHOMP MONSTER AT THE NORTH END OF THE POND AS WELL|
| AT THIS DRAB-LOOKING TIME OF YEAR IT'S NICE TO SEE SOME COLOR IN OUR YARD AGAIN|
Al's Music Box:)) A double whammy tonight. Two versions of the same song and I like them both. First is Willow Weep For Me by Chad and Jeremy from the album 'Willow Weep For Me'. 1964 ..... Second is Willow Weep For Me by Lou Rawls from the album 'Stormy Monday. 1962
| AN AFTERNOON SIT DOWN ON THE PORCH|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Pete and Larry had not seen each other in many years. Now they had a long talk trying to fill in the gap of those years by telling about their lives. Finally, Pete invited Larry to visit him in his new apartment. "I got a wife and three kids and I'd love to have you visit us." "Great. Where do you live?" "Here's the address. And there's plenty of parking behind the apartment. Park and come around to the front door, kick it open with your foot, go to the elevator and press the button with your left elbow, then enter! When you reach the sixth floor, go down the hall until you see my name on the door. Then press the doorbell with your right elbow and I'll let you in." "Good. But tell me...what is all this business of kicking the front door open, then pressing elevator buttons with my right, then my left elbow?" "Surely, you're not coming empty-handed."
Officer: Soldier, do you have change for a dollar?
Soldier: Sure, buddy.
Officer: That's no way to address an officer! Now let's try it again.
Do you have change for a dollar?
Soldier: No, SIR!
Porch sitting is one of the best things ever!! And by the way, you have been imprinted...so they will easily identify you and track you beforehand. Before ....what? Well, I'm not sure.ReplyDelete
That could be shingles on your arm, might want to get it checked out,ReplyDelete
I sure know about the brain and pain. As long as I'm reading or watching something I don't notice the pain, but I stop and there it is!ReplyDelete
You nailed it! On target....Delete
