I've always liked warm summer nights, still do.  Pheebs and I rolled out Saturday night to our walking spot then took a leisurely cruise around a few nearby country roads.  Saturday nights I like listening to music from the forties so I either have on my Sirius Satellite radio Sinatra station or the forties junction.  It's always a nice time to remember back to days gone by.  Cruising along I noticed the northwest sky getting very dark.  Obviously, a storm coming in and sure enough, I saw lightning on the horizon out over the lake.  Time to get home and close some windows and shed doors.  The storm did come in about half an hour later but its bark was worse than its bite.  With a bit of lightning, thunder, and rain it whimpered through our area and continued inland to the east.

A nice Sunday morning walk with big white fluffy clouds to the northwest and a nice breeze coming up from the south.

Our Jeep ride took us south through Varna then west to the Bronson line and north back towards Bayfield and on through to home a short distance northeast of Bayfield.  All and all it was a nice morning walk and Jeep ride.

It was while heading into Bayfield from the south this morning that Pheebs suggested we stop for a Tuna Sub.  Had been a while since we had our last one so that's what we did.  Wheeled into the Subway shop across from the Bayfield Garage and got ourselves a 6" Tuna Sub with lettuce, tomato, green peppers, onions, salt and pepper and sub sauce.  Drove over to Clan Gregor Square and parked us under a big old shady maple tree and divided up our sub.  A good time was had by all:))

Kelly called this afternoon so we had ourselves a long chat.  Her mother is still in a difficult medical condition and they are still doing all they can for her trying to make her mother as comfortable as possible.    It's a very difficult situation Kelly is having to cope with.

GROANER'S CORNER:((   Through the pitch-black night, the captain sees a light dead ahead on a collision course with his ship. He sends a signal: “Change your course 10 degree east.”  The light signals back: “Change yours, 10 degrees west.”  Angry, the captain sends: “I’m a navy captain! Change your course, sir!”  “I’m a seaman, second class,” comes the reply. “Change your course, sir.”  Now the captain is furious. “I’m a battleship! I’m not changing course!”  There is one last reply. “I’m a lighthouse. Your call.”

  1. Our hearts go out to Kelly--we've been in her shoes. And it's so hard for all of you to be apart.

  2. So Pheebs likes it too. Well done on taking the both of you enjoying.
    Difficult for Kelly for sure...and you too without her. Sounds like she has done her best to be a caring daughter. That's about the only consolation I can think of. Sometimes life is just hard.

  3. Love the webs - so pretty! Great shot of Pheebs enjoying her sandwich. Nice of her to share with you. Hugs to Kelly as she takes care of her mom's needs in a difficult time.

  4. What a wonderful picture of Pheebs in all her glory. Warm vibes to Kelly as she tends to her mother's needs. And to you

  5. Because we know that Kelly's worries are your worries.

  6. I feel for Kelly, it isn't easy at this time for her or the family. Blessings to everyone and you also Al.

  7. Priceless photo of Miss Pheebs enjoying the sub.

    Good thoughts and prayers for Kelly's Mom, Kelly and other family members. Not an easy time to go through.

  8. Love the heart in your last spiderweb photo.
    Little messages of love in nature are always special.
    They show up when you need them, just for you!

  9. My thoughts are with Kelly. She is in a difficult situation, they all are especially her mother.

    How in the world did you get that shot with you the sub and seems with her tongue out. That is absolutely fabulous!
