I was back and forth to the washroom 6 times in the night so today was not exactly one of my better days.  Pheebs and I only did half of our southern Bayfield route this morning.  I was just too tired.  Back home shortly after we set out I caught a few zzzzzz's in my sunroom recliner before company arrived.
Kelly's youngest daughter Rebecca, husband Ricardo, and daughter Ella rolled in shortly before 1 p.m.  They weren't long in getting themselves over to the Bayfield Beach about a mile west of us.  With a bit of energy from my previous snooze I was able to finish up the car-port clean up.  For the rest of the day much of my time was spent quietly reading in the sunroom except for doing my laundry.  Our company will be heading back to Kitchener Monday.
Kelly and the Kitchener gang headed into Bayfield for supper at the Out Of The Blue Seafood restaurant.  Good food.  Pheebs and I stayed home.  I had no appetite and wasn't feeling the best.  That restless night sleep I head sure knocked the stuffings out of me today.  That running to the washroom so often is all part of my prostate problem.
I think it has been the fastest summer I can ever remember and talking with others they have said the same thing.  Same number of days hours and minutes as any other summer but for some unknown phycological reason it has just simply sped by.  Here we are only a couple weeks from kids going back to school and September's Labour Day.  Wasn't it just the beginning of Spring a few weeks ago.  Birds and Little Red on the feeder, planting clover seeds, yard clean-up, lawn ornaments out of the shed, muddy morning Jeep rides, and no humidity in the air for me to constantly complain about.  Yes it has been a fast summer alright and I expect it will keep up it's pace until slamming head on into the cold dismal gray sky month of November.  From there it's anybody's guess as to how time will slow down and mesh into it's grinding winter schedule. 

GROANER'S CORNER:((  Dolly Parton and Queen Elizabeth went to the Pearly Gates on the same day.  They both met with an Angel to find out if they would be admitted to Heaven.  The angel said "Unfortunately, there's only one space in Heaven today so I must decide which one of you will be admitted."  The Angel asked Dolly if there was some particular reason why she should go to Heaven. Dolly took off her top and said, "Look at these, they're the most perfect breasts God ever created and I'm sure it will please God to be able to see them every day, for eternity."  The Angel thanked Dolly, and asked Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the same question.  The Queen walked over to a toilet, pulled the lever and flushes it without saying a word.  The Angel immediately said, "OK, your Majesty, you may go into Heaven."  Dolly was outraged and asked, "What was that all about? I showed you two of God's own perfect creations and you turned me down. She simply flushed a commode and she got admitted to Heaven! Would you explain that to me?  "Sorry, Dolly," said the Angel, "but even in Heaven, a royal flush beats a pair - no matter how big they are."


  1. Ella is getting so big, and more beautiful too. Pheebs looks like she's in heaven with all the extra attention.

  2. And winter always seems to DRAG at a snails pace doesn't it?

  3. Beautiful grand kid Kelly has. Enjoyed that Groaner tonight. A few post back you had a tractor pic with a hay mower on it. They are also used with the harvest of some crops. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  4. Summer this year does seem to have flown right by, my grandson just said that the other day, the fastest summer in his whole life. Now we only have 53 days when we head on down the road again. Nice that Kelly had a nice visit with her family. Soon be feeling better we hope.

  5. always enjoy your posts and laugh at your Groaner's Corner.

  6. Dear All Read it... Think about it...

    9 wonderful statements by Academician Dr. Amosov

    1. In most diseases, it is not nature, not society, but only the man himself. Most often he is sick of laziness and greed, but sometimes from unreasonable.

    2. Don't hope for medicine. She heals many diseases well, but can't make a man healthy. Until she can't even teach a man how to become healthy.
    More than that: be afraid to get captive to doctors! Sometimes they tend to increase the weaknesses of the person and the power of their science, create people's disease and issue notes that can't pay.

    3. to become healthy, you need your own effort,
    Permanent and significant. You can't replace them with nothing. Fortunately, a man is so perfect that it is almost always possible to return health. Only the necessary efforts increase as old age and the deepening of diseases.

    4. the magnitude of any effort is determined by the motives, the motives of the purpose, the time and the probability of its achievement. And very sorry, but also the character! Unfortunately, health as
    An important goal, rises in front of a man when death becomes a close reality. But a weak man can't even scare the ghost of death for a long time: he comes up with the thought of her, gives up and is truly coming to an end. (or maybe that's good? " don't waste, kuma, strength, go to the bottom!" the end is the same: before, later...)

    5. For Health, four conditions are equally necessary: physical loads, nutritional restrictions, hardening, time and ability to rest. And another fifth - happy life! Unfortunately, without the first conditions, she does not provide health. But if there is no happiness in life, where to find stimuli for effort to tense and starve? Alas!

    6. The Nature of the merciful: enough 20-30 minutes of physical culture a day, but such to choke, to sweat and to make the pulse doubled. If it's time to double, it will be great at all.

    7. You need to limit yourself to food. Maintain Weight Growth (in cm) minus at least 100.

    8. to be able to relax is science, but it also needs character. If he was!

    9. About happy life. It is said that health - happiness is already in itself. It's incorrect: it's easy to get used to health and stop notice it. However, it helps to achieve happiness in the family and in work. Helps but doesn't define. The truth is, the disease is definitely a misfortune.

    I do not pretend to be a fullness or a besspornost╩╣ in my advice set out in this book. And this small section is written exclusively for general orienteering.
    • People should know that overeating, physical detrenirovannost╩╣,
    Mental tension and lack of hardening serve as the main
    The causes of their diseases.
    • That in everything to blame they themselves, and not at all external environment, not society, not
    The weakness of human nature.
    • for the treatment of diseases, it is necessary first of all to eliminate these factors,
    There is to train, to live scrapin and eat raw vegetables, not to smoke and sleep
    How much I want and certainly not to smoke.
    • the medicines to which these people are so attached will act at the same time
    Much more effective.
    • If the technique has freed a person from useful loads, they need them
    Compensate for "useless" - physical culture. Just one hour!
    • Eat more vegetables and fruits.
    • Strictly keep the weight.
    • Trust your nature and don't run for the doctors.
