OUR LILACS ARE IN BLOOM
Woke up to overcast skies and cooler temperatures which actually turned out to be a good thing later on. A short drive to Goderich this morning snapping a few pics along the way as well as couple alongside the lake before heading home again.
I ‘LL BET THIS GANG WAS SURE GLAD TO GET OUT OF WINTER‘S BARN AND BACK OUTSIDE INTO THE GRASSY GREEN FIELDS OF SPRING
THIS GIVES MEANING TO THE WORDS ‘CONTENTED COWS’
NOW HOW’S THIS FOR A RELAXING CUP OF HOME BREWED MORNING COFFEE AT THE BEACH
A NICE PEACEFUL WAY TO START THE DAY
Although cloudy and cooler there was still humidity in air which I soon found out about after resuming the Motorhome’s wax job. At least today was better than Friday for doing physical work outside. And about that outside physical work this past week or so waxing the Motorhome. I don’t think I have a muscle group left anywhere in my body that has not been barking and especially around the middle of my back. Sure have been sore but I figure that has to be a good thing getting all those old muscles loosened up again. Arms and legs are about ready to fall off but no matter cause it’s probably just what this aging body of mine needed.
I’LL SURE BE GLAD WHEN THIS JOB IS FINISHED AND I DON’T HAVE TO CLIMB UP AND DOWN ALL THESE LADDERS ANYMORE
HOW NICE TO HAVE THE SWEET AROMA OF LILACS IN OUR FRONT YARD
WE ALSO HAVE CHERRY BLOSSOMS OUT RIGHT NEXT TO THE LILACS
WE CAN’T REMEMBER THE NAME OF THIS VINE OUTSIDE KELLY’S BEDROOM WINDOW BUT WE’RE GUESSING AT SOME KIND OF WISTERIA
WE HAVE NEVER SEEN FLOWERS THIS BIG ON THIS VINE EVER AND IT WAS WELL OVER A DOZEN YEARS AGO WE PLANTED IT
While teetering away near the top of my 12’ ladder this afternoon a thought occurred to me which almost made me climb right back down and haul off and give myself a good swift kick in the rear end. Four years ago we had the Motorhome completely waxed and polished from top to bottom at a professional place in Zurich Ontario. They did a great job and we were pleased with the results. The shine on any of the coach’s ‘painted’ surface is like the day it came out of the factory, Very easy to clean and very easy to wax and polish. No splotchy blotchy. The white fiberglass had again oxidized to a dull finish and of course it is those white sections on the coach which are giving me so much trouble. The thought I had atop my ladder was simply, ‘why didn’t I take the coach down to Zurich and have the fella there give me a quote on how much he would charge to do just the white oxidized sections of the rig which is probably 75% of the overall finish’. Wished that thought had found it’s way into my mind a couple of weeks ago before starting this Motorhome waxing project. Balancing on the top of a 5, 12, or 15 foot ladder hanging onto a 10 inch buffer polisher spinning around is not the smartest thing for a feller to do. I don’t bounce as well as I used too.
LIVING ROOM SLIDE…..BOTTOM PART IS WAXED AND TOP PART IS NOT
A GOOD EXAMPLE OF WAXED AND NOT WAXED
IF YOU LOOK BETWEEN THE WINDOWS TOWARDS THE BOTTOM YOU CAN SEE THE WAX LINE…..BOTTOM IS FINISHED AND TOP IS NOT AND THAT TOP PART IS THE LAST SECTION I HAVE TO DO:))
AND WE HAVE ANOTHER FLOWERING SHRUB IN OUR FRONT YARD WE DON’T KNOW THE NAME OF
DID YOU NOTICE THE HONEY BEE
WE THINK THIS IS AN AZALEA BEGINNING TO BLOOM
Sun finally came out about mid afternoon and drove up the humidity factor and that temporarily drove me back into the house but not before completing the rear cap on the rig plus the bottom half of the living room slide. With a bit of luck I should be able to wrap this big waxing job up Sunday. After this, waxing a car is going to seem like a mere spit in the bucket.
CAN’T REMEMBER THE NAME OF THIS FLOWERING GROUND COVER BUT BY GOLLY I KNOW THAT IS A BUMBLE BEE IN THERE
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A young banker decided to get his first tailor-made suit so he went to the finest tailor in town and got measured. A week later he went in for his first fitting. He put on the suit and he looked fabulous and felt that in this suit he can do some real business. As he was preening himself in front of the mirror he reached down to put his hands in the pockets and to his surprise he noticed that there were no pockets. He mentioned this to the tailor who asked him, "Didn't you tell me you were a banker?" The young man answered, "Yes, I did." To this the tailor said, "Who ever heard of a banker with his hands in his own pockets?"
The banker fell overboard from a friend's sailboat. The friend grabbed a life preserver, held it up, not knowing if the banker could swim, and shouted, “Can you float alone?” “Obviously,” the banker replied, “but this is a heck of a time to talk business.”
