It was my turn to drive this morning so I picked up my buddy Richard at 9:30 and we headed off to McDonalds in Goderich for two coffees and two carrot muffins to go. Our meandering travels took us northeast of Goderich under semi-sunny skies and slightly warmer temps. Definitely more snow lying around north of Goderich than the Bayfield area. No signs of Huron County's bean or corn harvest resuming. The land is still too wet and muddy. Looking ahead at the 14-day weather forecast it isn't looking too bad at all for this time of year. I'm seeing some 50F days with sunshine. That oughta keep me going and stop me from complaining for a while longer eh:))
A partial sunshiny afternoon had me out raking up Red Bud and Basswood leaves for surface mulch on Winter's flowerbeds. A brisk walk around the Park's pond for Pheebs and I gave my legs a bit of much-needed exercise. Pheebs legs too.
NORTH OF CLINTON, WE CROSS THE MAITLAND RIVER ON A SNOWY BALLS BRIDGE HEADING WEST A LONE INUKSHUK SENTINAL STANDS FIRM AGAINST THE RUSHING CURRENTS OF THE RIVER HEAVY MACHINERY SITS IDLE WAITING FOR THE GROUND TO DRY UP ENOUGH TO GET ON WITH THE BEAN AND CORN HARVESTS

Al's Music Box:)) What A Difference A Day Makes by Dinah Washington, won a Grammy Award for her in 1959 Best Rhythm and Blues Performance with this song. Her version was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998. (Thanks for the reminder of this song JudithK:))
WHEN WE SPOTTED THESE GEESE, RICHARD SAID SOME OF THEM WERE STANDING ON A LOG AND I SAID NO I DIDN'T THINK SO. I THOUGHT THEY WERE ALL FLOATING IN THE WATER. EDITING THIS PHOTO LATER I SAW RICHARD WAS RIGHT
GROANER'S CORNER:(( I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the Deer Crossing sign on our road. The reason: many deer were being hit by cars and he no longer wanted them to cross there.
