Another fine late October morning with temps in the high 50sF. Sunshine and a light breeze found Pheebs and I at our country road walking spot for the second day in a row.
ON BAYFIELD RIVER ROAD ABOUT A MILE EAST OF OUR PARK
I started trimming back an overgrown tree Monday afternoon alongside where we always parked our RVs. Wanting to finish that job and get all those branches to the Park's recycling area I continued with that project this morning as soon as we got back from our walk. It's a good thing I bought a new blade for my Swede Saw last week.
I'M STILL NOT SEEING ANY SIGNS OF THE CORN HARVEST GETTING INTO GEAR AND THERE IS MORE RAIN ON THE WAY AS EARLY AS WEDNESDAY A SCHOOL BUS SHELTER AT THE END OF A FARM LANE A NICE STAND OF BIRCH TREES CANADA GEESE
Kelly's dietician lady called her today saying when we come to London on Thursday to see the head surgeon guy, she would like to talk to Kelly. That means we will be leaving mid-morning instead of later. Had it just been the Doctor appointment we would have taken Pheebs but instead Pheebs will go over to Richard and Gayles now for a few hours.
|HAD I KEPT THIS TREE TRIMMED YEARS AGO I COULD HAVE SAVED MYSELF A LOT OF WORK|
|A BIG LOAD OF TREE BRANCHES|
|NOW RESTRICTED TO A SMALL AREA IN OUR PARK'S RECYCLE AREA I DIDN'T HAVE A LOT OF ROOM TO BACK IN AND YES I DID GET A MUDDY SOAKER|
|WITH ALL THE SOFT MUD HERE I WAS COMFORTED BY THE THOUGHT THAT THE JEEP IS FOUR WHEEL DRIVE IN CASE I NEEDED TO USE IT|
As it turned out I spent about four hours outside today doing some leaf raking and a number of other piddly little things. I don't know where all the time goes but maybe I'm just moving around a lot slower than I used to move around. Maybe even some slow motion going on eh:((
Al's Music Box:)) Money For Nothing by the Dire Straits in 1985 from their album, 'Brothers In Arms'. According to Knopfler, he was in New York City and had visited an appliance store. At the back of the store was a wall of televisions which were all tuned to MTV. Knopfler said that standing next to him, watching the TVs, there was a male employee, dressed in a baseball cap, work boots, and a checkered shirt, who was delivering boxes. As they were watching MTV, as Knopfler recalled, the man came out with lines such as, "What are those, Hawaiian noises?... That ain't workin'," etc. Knopfler then requested a pen to write some of these lines down, and eventually put them to music.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( The United Nations sent out a survey to every country, asking "Would you please share your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?" The survey flopped pretty much everywhere.
In Africa, families were confused about what "food" was.
Eastern Europeans watching state TV didn't know what "honest" meant.
In Western Europe, they didn't know what "shortage" meant.
People watching in China didn't know what an "opinion" was.
In the war torn areas of Afghanistan and the Middle East, they didn't know what "solution" meant.
People in South America didn't know what "please" meant.
People in Russia reading the survey knew what "share" meant.
Finally, Americans didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.
Little Johnny's preschool class went on a field trip to the fire station.The firefighter giving the presentation held up a smoke detector and asked the class: "Does anyone know what this is?" Little Johnny's hand shot up and the firefighter called on him. Little Johnny replied: "That's how Mommy knows supper is ready!"
Why was the United Nations concerned when the waitress dropped the platter on Thanksgiving? It meant the fall of Turkey, the ruin of Greece, and the breakup of China.
