Out for her walk with Kelly Thursday morning, Pheebs chased a rabbit and while doing so, hurt her leg and came back limping. So, no Jeep ride for us guys Thursday. Her ankle seemed better this morning so we did manage a Jeep ride but no walk. We puttered ourselves around in Bayfield for half an hour or so and I took my first walk out onto Bayfield's new bridge pedestrian walkway. It officially opened last week. Aside from a few small things to finish up here and there I think it is fair to say Bayfield's new highway 21 bridge over the Bayfield River is now complete.
Trees are slowly losing their leaves but we still have lots of Autumn colors left continuing to show off the season. Although our day and night temps have dropped, we are certainly enjoying these sunny days right now.

I started a new book yesterday entitled, You and Your Own Universe by Silviu Pristavu. I found the beginning chapters not only enlightening but very encouraging as well. However, the further I read, the more bogged down I seemed to become and at the moment I'm stuck. Sometimes, things just get too complicated for me. It's either that, or I complicate them myself. Oh well, it's all in the challenge of the read I suppose.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A Canadian Park Ranger is giving some hikers a warning about bears, “Brown bears are usually harmless. They avoid contact with humans so we suggest you attach small bells to your rucksacks and give the bears time to get out of your way. However, grizzly bears are extremely dangerous. If you see any grizzly-bear droppings leave the area immediately. “So how do we know if they’re grizzly bear droppings?” asks one of the ramblers. “It’s easy,” replies the Ranger. “They’re full of small bells.”

- “Anyone want to buy some exercise equipment? I’m having a going-out-of-fitness sale.”
