One For Al of the Bayfield Bunch...

There is a tiny insect on the tip of the flower that likes to suck the insides out of Aphids
One sucked on me one time and it was extremely painful.

I love to read RV'ers blogs especially the blog of Al and Kelly of The Bayfield Bunch and his "Groaner's Corner". I also love his photographs, so when I received this email the other day from a friend, my thoughts immediately went to Al and I knew he would appreciate it.

So Al...you may never read this but know I'm thinking of you.


Yesterday I was at my local COSTCO buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Tank, the Wonder Dog and was in the check-out line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

What did she think I had an elephant? So since I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IV's in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a Perfect Diet and that the way it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.)

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff a poodle's ass and a car hit me.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.

Costco won't let me shop there anymore. Better watch what you ask retired people. They have all the time in the world to think of crazy things to say.

Happy Trails....


A Feast For Ears and Eyes...

While looking at different sites on the net this weekend, my dear hubby sent me to a few that blew me away.

One was a continuous shoot to a lip sinc of American Pie shot in Grand Rapids, MI. The next one was of 2 guys, one piano and a cello with a wow factor. The last one was so beautiful it made me cry and I'm still seeing the images in my mind. I will let you experience it like I did with an open mind. Watch them, they will blow you away.

It makes you wonder how far the Internet will take us and at this time I think it is limitless.

If you have trouble seeing the sites let me know and I will email them to you.


Pain You Know Where...

I don't know what has happened to Blogger but it's a pain you know where. Every time I try to make a comment on some sites I follow, it seems I am unable to. It's been going on for over two weeks now. Those with comment boxes at the bottom of their page are the worst. I will type my message then it asks for how you want to be listed, I use to be able to click on my google account and preview and post. But now if I click on google account it takes me back to the sign-in page, I sign-in again and then we go back to the post page and then back to the sign-in page, on and on we go this way and then I end up being anonymous if it gets posted. If it is just a comment and you click on it it takes you to a different page, you type in you message and post with no problems. Tis a puzzlement...
