We had a thin one inch white layer of the cold white stuff covering the ground this morning and a temperature of 27F to keep it there too. Contemplated pulling my blanket over my head and staying in my recliner all day but knowing that wouldn't be fair to the Pheebs, I got up, got dressed, and we headed off to Goderich looking for a 'grab bar'. Our usual coffee, harbor, gas, and Walmart with an additional stop at Canadian Tire.

Thursday of last week and this past Sunday I had photos in my blog that showed large pieces of metal on a flatbed truck near Bayfield's Marina and also near Bayfield's fishing pier on the north side of the river. These pieces had been underwater for a long time and only recently dredged up. Today, in the Bayfield Breeze is the story behind those large pieces of steel. It turns out all those separate chunks of metal had once been joined together to make something very seaworthy. Rather than me trying to explain it all, here is the story.....

A magazine reporter is traveling through a rainforest, in search of a fabled cannibalistic tribe. He falls into a trap, goes unconscious and wakes up tied to a stake with a fire burning slowly underneath him. He cries out for help, and is answered by what is obviously one of the tribesmen, who informs him that he is going to be served as dinner to the leader of the tribe. "But you don't understand!" he cries, "You can't do this to me! I'm an editor for the New Yorker magazine!" "Ah," replies the tribesman, "Well soon you will be editor-in-chief!"
Q: How did the bishop make holy water?
A: He took some tap water and boiled the hell out of it.
WOMEN are honest, loyal, and forgiving. They are smart, knowing that knowledge is power. But they still know how to use their softer side to make a point.Women want to be the best for their family, their friends, and themselves. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They have sorrow at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
A woman can make a romantic evening unforgettable.
Women come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes. They live in homes, apartments and cabins. They drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world spin! Women do more than just give birth. They bring joy and hope. They give compassion and ideals.
