OUR PATH THROUGH THE FOREST ON THE NORTH SIDE OF WALKERS POND WAS LIKE A WALK THROUGH AN ENCHANTED FOREST TODAY
With my legs feeling much better this morning and with boots and paws on the ground and sunny skies overhead, Pheebs and I dusted up our favorite country road earlier today. After that, we headed home, parked the Jeep, and trotted out the Subaru.
A DUSTING OF SNOW THIS MORNING?? NOPE, JUST A FIELD OF DANDELIONS THAT HAVE GONE TO SEED

From the Vets we headed to London's Victoria Hospital for Kelly's 12:30 Plasmapheresis treatment. Dropping her off Pheebs and headed for the Westminster Ponds area and walked the path on the north side of Walkers Pond this afternoon. It was warm but not hot and luckily no bugs. I had parked the Subaru in the shade and on returning to the car pulled my gravity chair out of the car, set it up on the grass, and relaxed with my Kindle. Pheebs explored around and had a couple big snoozes beside my chair. My flip phone rang at about 2:30 p.m. and Kelly was ready to go. Minutes later we were on our way home with a short stop at Wendys for coffees and a snack. We were home at 4:20 p.m.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A young girl who was writing a paper for school came to her father and asked, “Dad, what is the difference between anger and exasperation?” The father replied, “It is mostly a matter of degree. Let me show you what I mean.” With that the father went to the telephone and dialed a number at random. To the man who answered the phone, he said, “Hello, is Melvin there?” The man answered, “There is no one living here named Melvin. Why don't you learn to look up numbers before you dial”. “See,” said the father to his daughter. “That man was not a bit happy with our call. He was probably very busy with something and we annoyed him. Now watch….” He dialed the same number, and when a violent voice roared, “Hello!” The father calmly said, “Hello, this is Melvin. Have there been any calls for me".
A LONE FLOWER ON THE FOREST FLOOR
- Someone stole my broken calculator, but I don't know why. It just doesn't add up.
- How do you get a one-armed man out of a tree?
- A little girl became restless as the preacher's sermon dragged on and on. Finally, she leaned over to her mother and whispered, "Mommy, if we give him the money now, will he let us go?"
Beautiful pictures as always AlReplyDelete
Al, yep, beautiful pictures as usual; Kelly's looking more animated, good ! Sorry about sweet Pheebs' ears trouble.😰Delete
Love the delight on Kelly's face as she looks at Miss Pheebs.ReplyDelete
Out and about when traveling and no appointments I never know what day it is. At the house I have to keep a calendar like I did when I was working! What a pretty trail through the woods. Love the tree guardians with all their burls and knots and gnarls!ReplyDelete
Great photos of the trees. Kelly looks so cute and of course Pheebs is the star of the show.ReplyDelete
We changed to grain-free food for our dog & she had no more yeast ear infections & stopped chewing her toes. It may help Pheebs.ReplyDelete
