|FELT GREAT TO HAVE BOOTS AND PAWS ON THE GROUND IN A FOREST AGAIN THIS MORNING|
|MORNING WALKERS ON BAYFIELD RIVER ROAD|
|FISHERMEN FINALLY BACK ON BAYFIELD'S SOUTH PIER|
|FISHERMEN ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE BAYFIELD RIVER|
|I WONDER HOW MANY LUCKY FISH GOT AWAY WHILE THE FELLOW ON THE RIGHT WAS TEXTING ON HIS SMARTPHONE|
|THE OFFSHORE ICE PACK IS BEGINNING TO BREAK UP|
A drive into and around Bayfield for Pheebs and I earlier today. I had washed the Jeep Thursday so I didn't want to head out into the country and muddy it up again. We headed to an open field area which is part of the Bayfield cemetery and took ourselves for a walk around there and through an adjacent forest. So nice to be able to walk on solid ground again and just be in a forest again.
|NO RESIDENTS ON THIS SIDE OF THE BAYFIELD CEMETERY YET|
|DESPITE CLOUDY SKIES, WE HAD A FEW WELCOME SUN SPLASHES THIS MORNING|
|I WAS ANXIOUS TO SEE SOME COLOR OUTSIDE AGAIN|
With all the ice out of our driveway plus bare and dry roads I fired up our little Winnebago and took it for a run over to Holmesville and back. After spending the winter months in hibernation it purred along as smooth as a finely tuned Swiss watch. Everything checked out except the left blinker wasn't working. I had trouble with the blinkers last Autumn when I tried to hook the Jeep up. I never did get that resolved. The left blinker blinks on the dash but neither the front nor rear blinker works. I also pulled the awning down to dry it out. The rig's exterior sure is going to need a good cleaning and polishing.
|WITH BARE AND DRY ROADS TODAY IT WAS A GOOD OPPORTUNITY TO GET SCOOTER OUT OF WINTER'S HIBERNATION AND BLOW OUT SOME COBWEBS|
|YES, SCOOTER DOES HAVE WIDE REARVIEW MIRROR ALRIGHT|
|THE MIRROR GIVES ME A WIDE-ANGLE VIEW INTO THE COACH AND I CAN SEE WHEN KELLY IS BRINGING ME A COFFEE OR AN EGG SALAD SANDWICH.....THAT IS IF AND WHEN WE EVER GET TO GO SOMEWHERE AGAIN SOMEDAY|
|THE AWNING WASN'T AS WET AS I THOUGHT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN|
|AN EARLY FOREST SPRING WILDFLOWER BLOOM?? NOPE, THIS IS A PLASTIC FLOWER FROM A CEMETERY FLOWER ARRANGEMENT BLOWN HERE BY THE WIND|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer. Suddenly the sky clouded above his head and, in a booming voice, the Lord said, "Because you have TRIED to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish." The man said, "Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over anytime I want."The Lord said, "Your request is very materialistic. Think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it would take! It will nearly exhaust several natural resources. I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of something that would honor and glorify me." The man thought about it for a long time. Finally he said, "Lord, I wish that I could understand my wife. I want to know how she feels inside, what she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she means when she says ‘nothing's wrong,’ and how I can make a woman truly happy." The Lord replied, "You want two lanes or four on that bridge?"
