Due to the heavy humidity again this morning we skipped our morning walk for the second day in a row.  Luckily, a solid cloud cover kept the sun from boiling all the moisture in the air until it later emerged shortly before eleven o'clock.  Because I had forgotten to write down a few things in my shirt pocket reminder book Wednesday we had to return to Walmart this morning to pick up a couple missed items.  A drive down around Goderich's north harbor road and we were soon on our way home again.  With this heat and humidity being like it is there isn't much going on here these days.  Stay in the house out of the heat and that's about it:(( 

GROANER'S CORNER:((    Several days before Halloween, Tom, Dick, and Harry were sitting in a bar enjoying a few quiet drinks, when they decided to get in on the Christmas raffle.  Since the raffle was for charity, they bought five tickets each. When the raffle was drawn a few days later, they each won a prize.  Tom won the first prize - a year's supply of gourmet spaghetti sauce.  Dick was the winner of the second prize - a six-month supply of extra-long gourmet spaghetti.  And Harry won the sixth prize - a toilet brush.  The next time they met at the bar, Harry asked the others how they were enjoying their prizes. "Great," said Tom. "I love spaghetti."  "Me too," replied Dick.  "And how's the toilet brush, Harry?"  "Not so good," Harry groaned, "I reckon I'll go back to toilet paper."


I’m on a whiskey diet...
I’ve lost three days already.



  1. You chose some really good angles on the ship pictures. Thank you.

  2. Al how do they get the dock lines from the ship to the dock area ? They look to be rather large and would be very heavy . Thanks for listening . Always read and enjoy your writings . Vern in Boise Idaho

  3. Good question Vern and I hadn't thought about that. I'm guessing the ropes are carried aboard the ship, secured, and then tossed down to a ground crew when the ship docks. I'm thinking there might be a lot of muscle work handling those ropes whether deploying them or hauling them back aboard.

  4. I always enjoy your pictures of that old ship in the harbour.
