It was Richard's turn to drive this morning so we headed off to Goderich, grabbed a couple coffee's to go and motored on out of town for a two and a half hour drive and chat.  Always refreshing, always interesting and always enlightening.DSC_0080


Tonight’s Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly photos were taken through my bedroom window Thursday afternoon.  The Butterfly is a bit blurry in some of the pics due to it’s fast fluttering movements.DSC_0088


DSC_0081Hot, hot, hot, so Kelly and I curtailed all outside activities and simply took advantage of our A/C again by staying inside today.  Same thing we'd do in the winter if it was cold, cold, cold outside.  Whether it's the extremes of heat or cold it's always nice to have the option of being in a controlled environment.DSC_0086DSC_0083DSC_0087


Nothing particular on my mind tonight so think I'll keep my post on the short side.  Not that there isn't anything to say, it's just that some days aren't always made for saying much..........:))  DSC_0077

GROANER'S CORNER:((  Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center were sitting on a bench under a palm tree when one turns to the other and says... "Slim, I'm 83 years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains. I know you' re about my age, how do you feel?"  Slim says, "I feel just like a new-born baby."  "Really!? Like a new-born baby!?"  "Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants."


A red head goes to her doctor and says that every time she drinks a coffee her eye hurts. The doctor prepared her a hot, fresh cup of coffee to see what really happens. She took a sip of the coffee and screamed, "Ouch, that hurts!" The doctor said, "I know your problem." The red head asked, "Is it bad, doctor?" The doctor replied, "No, you just need to take the spoon out of your cup before drinking your coffee."


In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, and then He rested. Then God created man, and then they both rested. Then God created woman, and since then neither God nor man has ever rested.
