It was a fog-shrouded morning we woke up to this morning and it was a quick mini-run into Bayfield and back for Pheebs and I.  Richard picked me up at 9 and we were off for another of our semi-monthly coffee runs.  Coffee and muffins to go at Clinton's Tim Horton coffee shop as our travels took us east from there over to and around the Seaforth area.  Fog all the way but as usual our minds were constructively clear:))


Home by 11:30 I can't really say much about the rest of the day.  Despite our milder 45F temps it still felt cold and damp outside to me so of course you know what I did for the rest of the day which of course was basically a repeat of the day before and the day before that, and.........

Most of my interest these gray November days has been focused on reading. With an open mind all the way through I finished a book called Return From Tomorrow about a young soldier, George C Ritchie who, after being twice declared dead by a Doctor came back to life 9 minutes later.  It is his story about what he saw, where he went, who he went with, and how he felt in those 9 minutes.  Normally, I would have been skeptical about this book but having come across related subject matter in the last 4 books I have read regarding UFOs, Extraterrestrials, and Encounters I have been able to find a definite connection in what I thought were originally two different and unrelated subject matters.   I am now reading Anne and Whitley Streiber's book The Afterlife Revolution which along with the other books is beginning to tie a few long-held loose ends together for me.  When I came across Whitely Streiber's words, 'But there is something much greater, more extraordinary and far stranger going on than we have yet realized',  I knew right away with certainty I was on the right track, for those words have been my very exact thoughts for a number of years now.  Could it be I am finally getting onto the right track of things?  Don't know, but what I'm reading is beginning to open a few doors of interest that I didn't know were there before.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A wife asked her husband: "What do you like most in me my pretty face or my sexy body?"  He looked at her from head to toe and replied: "I like your sense of humor."


Q: Why did the turkey cross the road?
A: It was Thanksgiving Day and he wanted people to think he was a chicken!

A first grade class was asked to write a paragraph called "What I'm thankful for on Thanksgiving."
Little Johnny's began, "I am thankful that I'm not a turkey."

My husband doesn't think housework is a full-time job. So for Thanksgiving, I served him a raw turkey because revenge is a dish best served cold.

  1. Enjoyed that Groaner, appropriate for today.

  2. Love your little black squirrel - he's so sweet. I love it when a find a book or three that really resonates with me and gives me interesting information to consider. A perfect way to spend a chilly day indoors!

  3. Not familiar with what you've been reading, so looked up the Steiber book. And here's a bit by a reviewer I can latch onto, that it's about "a belief in the undying nature of love." Seem evident to me in your photos, whether of a leaf, or Pheebs, or a field, or a foggy morning.
