Couldn't have been a finer late Autumn October morning as I headed east about 8:05 for the picturesque little town of St. Marys Ontario. I noticed right away the number of combines and farm wagons in many fields. Our area's annual corn harvest is well underway and farmers are busy.I picked up my good buddy Richard at about 9:15 a.m. and we soon had ourselves embedded in the Tim Horton coffee shop drive-thru line-up. For the second time in a row, they goofed up our simple two small coffees with cream and two carrot muffins order. Oh well, such is life. Minutes later we were out of town following a scenic gravel road ambling alongside the Thames River as it made its way to the southwest where I figure it would eventually empty itself into Lake Erie. We covered our usual number of miles and our usual number of great topics with a few new slants on this and that thrown in for good measure. Before we knew it our two-and-a-half hours were up and we were back in St Marys. Our travels had taken us through a few little whistle-stops called Rannoch, Motherwell, Anderson, and close to Kirkton Ontario. It was shortly after noon when we agreed on another coffee tour sometime in November. With that, I pointed Subie's nose for home. It is just so nice to be out and about in the countryside on this mighty fine sunny Autumn day. I think our temperature made it to over 70F again and I drove most of the way home with my passenger side window down.
