I stood tall…

DSCN2328.JPGA tree among many others…

www.marionbell.com/i-stood-tall

This is my blurb for Thursday October 24th….

I once stood tall with many of my friends in the forest.. I was the tallest tree in the part of the forest I lived in.. I could see far and wide.. I would talk with the smaller trees and let them know what I had seen that day.. I was the senior to all those trees that reached to touch the sky.. I was the first to see the storm as it rolled our way.. I would warn all others to hold on tight to the ground.. The smaller trees would wrap their leaves around my trunk.. My roots have been deep in the ground for many years and were strong.. I am the king of this forest.. I protect those that grow here.. The storms that have tugged my branches are many and those that have taken some of my limbs.. Year after year, the weather has been cruel and unkind to some of my forest friends.. The remnants of their once strong branches, lay on the forest floor.. It takes strength to survive the torcher of the winds.. My friend now rests up against the closest tree to where he grew..ย 

DSCN2457 (2).JPGLeaning on each other..

I have shed many gallons of sappy tears for all those that have gone before me.. I move my leaves to give the saplings below the sun they need to grow.. My bark has been picked away by bugs and beetles.. Elmwood disease has claimed many trees.. Now the Asian Beetle is taking a big bite out of our forest and urban area trees.. We are fading away… Do humans know just how important we really are to them?? We clean the air they breath each day.. We make shade for human’s to ling under.. Benches are placed at the bottom of our trunks.. People often come to sit and talk with other human friends.. When the rain falls the humans find shelter under my leaves.. I have been struck by lightening.. The sun has bleached my bare branches white.. The winters, and summers have worn me down.. I am old…

DSCN2571 (2).JPGSitting in the shelter of my branches..

My bark has long since dropped from my trunk, my branches have fallen to the ground… I am no longer the king of this place.. My branches lay on the ground in a pile of decaying wood.. There will be many trees to follow me and take my place.. They will be the kings of this ravished forest, where once I was the king..

DSCN2583 (2).JPGI have returned to where I began…

Our world is a much better place thanks to the trees we plant each year… And the ones that grow in the cover of the kings are our future… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ I wish everyone love and prosperity… Be kind to each other, and strive to be all you can be.. Till Tuesday… Have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend.. Smile often ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Day dreaming…

DSCN2555 (2).JPGThere is nothing like a walk in the woods…

www.marionbell.com/day-dreaming

This is my blurb for Wednesday October 23rd…

There is nothing better than taking a quiet walk through the forest on a beautiful day.. It’s almost a calming experience.. You can hear the birds in the trees singing sweetly.. They watch as you pass by.. The sounds of the drying leaves under your feet crunching as your feet touch them.. The crack of a branch being broken.. The fear of what maybe watching you or even stalking you has your eyes scanning the trees and the forest floor.. Are they there? You will never know as they are experts at the skill of hiding.. The sound of a chipmunk as he signals your arrival to his friends.. If you keep your eyes on the forest floor you may even encounter one as he speeds by.. A fluffy bunny must have been startled by your load foot stepping sound.. Run, away Bunny… They don’t even look back till they are in their safe place..

 

DSCN2552 (2).JPGYour stalker maybe closer than you think…

Little nooks and crannies to hide in.. Look closely to if there is anything there.. The breeze blows lightly down the path you have chosen to walk.. A spark of sun light warms the chill of the shadows… The echo of voices on the wind.. You turn to see, and there is a large brown dog is heading right your way.. There areย  people with smiles wide, that say their ‘hellos’ then walk ahead of you.. I can almost smell the musty odor of the forest floor, and the thriving moss on the fallen trees..ย 

DSCN2554 (2).JPGFallen, decaying trees…

The fallen trees left to rot away on the forest floor, tell tales of the sacrifice they have made to the earth, small insects, and new trees that hide within the forest floor.. The bark which once was their coat, no longer protects from the rathe of mother nature.. This tree is now home to the smallest creatures that need it’s shelter… A life cycle that has taken the trees from birth to death..ย 

DSCN2553 (2).JPGFungus on a fallen tree…

A fungus now uses this tree as it’s growing ground.. A place to display their colors and shapes.. Their beauty is one of splendor to those that stop to take a look.. Everything has a place and a time to grow.. In my mind I walk on towards the smell of water.. The smell of the fish that live in the water and wait for the next fishing trip to be taken.. I can see an opening ahead.. The blue sky and the sun light squint my eyes half way closed.. I feel a gust of warm breeze, as I move away from the darkness of the forest… The breeze flaps my undone jacket, and tousles the hair on your head away from your face..ย 

DSCN2568 (2).JPGThe water at the shore of the lake..

The water along the shore reveals the content that lies beneath.. The sun lights the rippling water as it slowly moves with the waves.. Red and white stones, fallen branches submerged in their watery grave.. Silt and sand lightly cover them.. The water is cold to the touch.. Your mind stops you from merging further into the dangerous water.. As your eyes look further across the lake you see blue water and trees of different colors.. I’m in paradise, as I stand gazing at the beauty of this place..ย 

DSCN2569 (2).JPGA fallen tree…

A tree has fallen into the cold chill of the lake.. The sun will bleach it white, and the wind will whistle through it’s branches.. This tree will decay in time, and become one with the water it lies in now.. Nature has away of returning that which came from the ground, and in the end will return to the ground.. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Be safe and take care of yourselves.. Till later.. I wish you all good fortune, and happiness… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Pumpkin patch

DSCN2598 (2).JPG ย  ย  ย  We followed behind a long line of many others, as we entered the Pumpkin Patch..

www.marionbell.com/pumpkin-patch

This is my tale of a day in the pumpkin patch for Monday October 21st…

DSCN2599 (2).JPGThe day was one of those beauty days we dream about in the fall.. The line to gain entrance to the pumpkin patch was long, but moved quickly.. The sea gulls could be seen against the blue sky, as they circled for any scraps of food they could find..

DSCN2601 (2).JPG ย  ย  ย  We passed sheep, goats and a Jersey cow.. There was chickens, ducks, geese and various other farm animals..

DSCN2609 (2).JPG ย  A beautifully colored Peacock watched us closely as we walked past him…

DSCN2610.JPGTom, the Turkey followed us as walked slowly past his enclosure.. He looked so sad… One thing for sure is that he missed Thanks Giving dinner…. ๐Ÿ™‚

DSCN2665 (2).JPGParents kept their children close as they made their way to the next, Bouncy Castle, bike trails just for the little folks.. Large bails of hay lay in patterns that gave children and some adults a place to play on.. A sand box filled with construction toys made a great place to show a child’s skills at loading a dump truck full of dirt.. A corn maze gave families a time to figure out where the way out was.. There were places to jump, run, or just a good old hill to roll down in the cool grass..ย 

DSCN2646 (2).JPG ย ย  Smiling faces peered threw cut out holes of hand painted scenes depicting the farm…

DSCN2619 (2).JPGย  ย ย  The faint sound of a train whistle draws your eyes to a packed train heading around a hill with various displays depicting scary, ghouls and haunted towns.. All reminding us that Halloween is getting closer…

DSCN2620 (2).JPG ย ย  In the distance I could see someone waving at all that passed by.. On further inspection, it was not a human, but a creature trying to scare us away.. We pushed forward passing by a haunted house that had very load banging going on inside in the pitch black… The sounds of people screaming could un-mistakably be heard as people ran from the darkness and into the light..

DSCN2615 (2).JPG ย ย  As we turned the corner behind the Haunted House.. There in front of us were people in cages.. In cages!!!! What was going on and were we the next to be trapped with the other people in the cages.. I stood still watching as the cage doors were opened and the people were set free.. These were the wagons that took us to the pumpkin patch.. I felt more at ease as we loaded up and were on our way.. Slowly we turned a corner, and could see…ย 

DSCN2708 (2).JPG ย  Horses grazing on blades of green grass.. They did not even seem to see us as we passed by..ย 

DSCN2669 (2).JPG ย ย  A line of grave markers towered over the scattered bones of humans that were buried there.. The wolves must have dug them up and licked the bones till they were white…

DSCN2696.JPG ย ย  Hidden in the corn rows was a Saloon with men staring at us as we passed them by..

DSCN2675 (2).JPG ย  A large family entertained themselves, as the cook rustled up a mess of burgers to feed the hungry… The spiders climbed the walls of the shack to escape the heat of the grill.. We bounced along at a slow pace, looking for any other families…

DSCN2700 (2).JPG ย  ย ย  We watched as a magic show, being performed for all who came to see the show…

DSCN2694 (2).JPG ย  ย  A covenant of Witches, cast their spells our way as we sped past them…

DSCN2693.JPG ย ย  This fellow in the corn stood watching over us as we got off the wagon… This was the pumpkin patch we had all been waiting to see…ย 

DSCN2705 (2).JPG ย  A field of pumpkins lay before us as children ran here and there in the hunt for the perfect pumpkin…ย 

DSCN2679 (2).JPG ย  ย  ย  The hunt for the perfect pumpkin was a daunting task, that made the best of us tired…

DSCN2687 (2).JPG ย ย  People started to head back to the wagons to take their harvest home with them.. Cutting that perfect pumpkin was a creative adventure…

DSCN2711 (2).JPG ย ย  We stood in amazement at the small town someone had built in the grass.. This is only one of the many buildings placed in the design of an old west town…

We entered a well stocked gift shop and browsed around the many shelves and displays… Heading to our cars dragging our feet, we were done and proud of our pumpkins..

Thanks to everyone who came to read my words this Monday October 21st.. Election day in Canada.. Get out and vote for the future of your world, and leader who cares…ย 

I have decided to write my stories on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for awhile due to over-load.. I will see you Tuesday.. Take care and be kind to others.. Have a wonderful Monday… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ย

So cold…

 

DSCN2446.JPG

I seen this mushroom growing between the patio stone at the front of the house…

www.marionbell.com/so-cold

This is my banter for Friday October 4th…

I wish to let all my readers know that as of October 5th to October 18th… Unfortunately, I will be unable to post my words.. My next post will be on Monday October 21st.. Thank you for your understanding… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ MAGS..

This is my banter for Friday October 4th…

Hello everyone out there in this big world:: This week has passed by with the speed of a moving train.. The fluctuation of the weather patterns have made being outside almost impossible.. Once this week it was way above seasonal temperatures, and the next it’s so darn cold.. Not only has it been cold but I have heard stories of a faint snow falling… Yikes!! “Why?” It’s not time for that kind of shenanigans… I haven’t harvested all my seeds yet for next spring…There has been a fine mist that has a granular feeling to it, falling from the heavens.. I think that is supposed to be snow.. I hope where we are headed, there are much better conditions.. I really don’t want to pack my long johns, but it maybe smart to do that.. I hope the weather is a little bit nicer where every you may reside.. I wish to send all of you good wishes for the weekend and Thanksgiving.. I hope your turkey is fat and your bellies are full.. I will have turkey, and likely fall asleep… If you have to take a nap… Blame it on the turkey..

DSCN2447.JPGย These intriguing shapes are delightful…

I would chance to say that these mushrooms are not of the edibleย  kind… I still like the shape of the lid of the mushroom.. It’s distortion is amazing.. Bending and weaving as it grows.. The things I find interesting that there are many things happening in the mushrooms growth .. Today, I had a lady come to patch up the ceiling in the kitchen where the old fluorescent light used to be.. I was a bit set back by the contractor being a lady.. I don’t know why!!! I just did.. And when I spoke with her on the phone I was envisioning a lady with large muscles and a big thick neck.. Kind of like the Hulk’s sister.. LOL But, I was way off point.. She was tiny and quite pretty.. She was older, and very friendly… I enjoyed talking with her.. Tomorrow she will return and sand and paint the covered part of the ceiling.. Then no one will ever know the old light was there.. Mission accomplished.. I have to shop tomorrow and that is one of my dreaded tasks.. I nearly have a stroke each time the total shows up.. Food is way too pricey.. I would imagine that most people feel the pull on the wallet when buying the necessities ofย  life..ย 

DSCN2449.JPG ย ย  This is a view from above looking into the top of the mushroom..

Friday is the day that our grandson moves out.. We are going to miss him a lot.. The house will be much quieter, and the meals will be less to prepare.. We have left him with these words.. “You will always be welcomed back here, and the bed upstairs will be made up waiting for your return.” We told him to keep his key and just unlock the door and come in.. We wish him good fortune, and happiness.. We love him very much.. ;(ย  I know he is going to be fine.. He’s a man now, and can make his own life.. But we will still worry about him, as we do all our grand-children.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

DSCN2445.JPG ย  ย  The water is filling up the mushroom tops..

It’s Thursday night and I have pretty well gone over all I wanted to say and more.. One thing I wish to do is wish my friend Kelly a speedy recovery.. Get well real soon girl.. Take care of those you love and be safe out there… I will see everyone with a bunch of words and photos, once I return… Till later.. Keep on truckin’…

I wish to thank all my readers for being here each day to read my words.. Thanks… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ย  ย Enjoy the photos.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Skunk’s here…

DSCN2003.JPGThis is a night photo that makes the light on the fence look like it has a shade on it…

www.marionbell.com/skunks-here

This is my banter for Thursday October 3rd…

Hello everyone:: I trust all is well with everyone.. I hope your weather has been treating each one of you without body harm.. I know some of the weather conditions around the world have become volatile… You never know what conditions will be at any given time.. I really hope everyone is safe… Today was cold compared to the high temperatures of Tuesday.. The change is somewhat extreme.. I’m just hoping the weather is fair for my get away next week… And yes, I will be off from Saturday October 5th to Wednesday October 16th.. I will be putting in a post on Thursday October 17th… There is no internet where I am going… So posts will be out till I get back…

DSCN2368.JPG ย  ย  ย ย  This trailer’s paint job is very well suited to the interior..ย 

This trailer did not have any make placed on it, so I am unable to give you the brand.. It did catch my eye with the white wall tires that accented the color… The interior will be shown in the next photo I post near the end of this post… You will see what I mean by the power of color…:)ย  As I sat writing Tuesday night, a familiar smell started to fill the Livingroom…. The smell started to make my stomach turn and feel pretty yucky.. I turned on the outside light, and pulled back the curtains… The inside door was left open and the outside door was closed… The smell had trapped it’s self behind the curtain and the space between the open door and the closed door.. As soon as I opened the curtains the smell was intense… I covered my mouth and nose with my shirt tails.. I coughed, and pinched my nose tightly.. I had a vulgar taste in my mouth from inhaling that putrid smell… I had to go outside to place a bright flash light on the railing to cover the back yard.. Skunks do not like the bright light.. I sprayed the sweet smell of baby powder between the doors and stepped out doors.. The smell was right there at the door.. It was like the skunk sat right outside the door.. I wonder if he was there for dinner?? I banged the floor with my walking stick… I looked to the left then the right.. I cautiously made my way to the railing, and scanned the yard.. There he was making his way to the hole he had come in through.. I yelled, “Get lost.” He turned to look at me as I shone the light in it’s face.. You could tell he wasn’t impressed at all.. He turned and went on his way.. I placed the flash light on the ledge, and put the gate closed..

DSCN2371.JPG ย  ย  ย  ย ย  This is the inside of that beautiful trailer above..

I made my way inside, and left the curtain open a bit… One of the puppies had heard something outside and made a small woof… I looked towards the window only to notice it was pouring buckets of rain.. I jumped to my feet in a panic.. The flash light was out there in this down pour, and I did not want it to get wet inside.. I slipped on my clogs and opened the door.. Sliding on the wet outdoor carpet I was at the railing in a matter of seconds.. The rain was running down my neck, which made me shiver.. The light was still on but it was soaked.. I shook the rain off and turned to head back inside.. I could feel the wet soaking my shirt.. It was a cold rain and not a warm one.. My hair was becoming wet and drippy.. There is nothing so sexy as wet messy hair.. I looked like a model running for her life.. I slipped again, and slowed my pace.. I entered the house and shook my head to get rid of some of theย  rain.. There on the couch were three puppies staring at me like I was crazy.. I removed my clogs and wiped the flash light with paper towel.. The flash light was not hurt by the pouring rain.. I must have saved it just in time… I wiped my hair with a towel and found spot on the couch with the puppies.. They didn’t seem to care that I was wet and my hair was a mess.. That’s why I love my dogs.. It don’t matter to them what I look like.. They take me just the way I am.. They love me..

The rain was still pouring down, and I was safe inside… I wonder how wet the skunk was now… Teach him for visiting our yard.. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.. This lady is on her way.. Till later.. Stand for what you believe… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

I would like to take this time to thank all my readers for visiting my site.. Thanks!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ย ย Enjoy the photos that I have posted for you.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Thunder…

DSCN2376.JPG ย  ย  An Orbit trailer.. I was not too familiar with this make..

www.marionbell.com/thunder

This is my banter for Wednesday October 2nd…

Before I go into my writing, I wish to apologize for having no post on Tuesday October 1st.. The internet was down and I was unable to do anything at all.. ๐Ÿ™ย 

Hello everyone:: I hope all of you great people are well on this day.. I seem a photo of Montana and Alberta, and they had a real dumping of snow.. Wow.. I’m happy I don’t live there… Last night in my part of the world there was a pretty nasty thunder storm.. The lights flickered a couple times as I started to write… The next thing I seen was darkness and the internet was pooched.. When the lights turned back on a few minutes later, the internet was no longer operating.. But, thanks to the repair man, the problem has been fixed.. I’m up and running again.. Today has brought a day of heat.. Thirty plus, and after the rain we received last night it’s like walking into a sauna.. Sticky, muggy and gross… The plants will love this day for sure.. It’s funny Wednesday is calling for a high of thirteen.. What a difference.. Cook one day and freeze on the next day.. Wow!! Crazy!!!

DSCN2381.JPGTastefully decorated and clean lines.. Iย  love the light fixture..

 

The couple that did this trailer did the best they could to keep this trailer as original as possible.. I think they did a wonderful job.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย  I hope those that seen the football sports noticed that Vontaze Burfict was up to his usual dirty strikes.. His head bunt actions have left him in hot water, and I mean hot… Vontaze has beeen warned many times over, and over… But, this was the last strawโ€ฆ Vontaze has been suspended… There is no room is sports for those kinds dirty shots… Right now I am watching the 2019 World Championship of darts.. It looks like most of the crowd is not paying a lot of attention to the players.. Lots of milling around is going on in the stadium… The event looks intense as the players concentrate on each toss of the darts.. There is lots of activity in the crowd as a winner is taking his bow… Job well done… Can you tell I am bored?? Well, I am.. I ended up yesterday with a nasty migraine head ache and today is the left over pain of the second day… I think it was from the storm that rolled in last night.. By the looks of the skies outside the window, it’s going to rain again…ย 

DSCN2320.JPG ย  ย  ย ย  This trailer is a Glendetteโ€ฆ.

It would seem that this trailer is very old.. I have never seen a fifth wheel trailer like this.. Mostly because I had no idea they were made back then.. The husband and wife who have owned this trailer for what seems like a hundred years, frequently use this trailer to this very day… Unlike the new ones of now.. The bedroom has a full look out over the dining area.. The kitchen is well thought out with plenty of room for a growing family.. The bathroom is quite roomy and has a tub in it.. It would be a trailer with the possibility of living in.. I wish I could have seen this trailer in it’s day, as it rolled off the assembly line.. She would have been beautiful… After all, old things are just as dependable as the new, maybe even more dependable.. And much easier to fix… I will be adding a couple photos of the inside, and you will be able to see what I mean as far as the interior.. It’s better if you actually are inside the trailer in person.. The truck that hauls this fine living quarters on wheels is a mere two years younger than the trailer..

DSCN2323.JPG DSCN2322.JPG ย  ย ย  Total comfort away from home…

It was a blast being able to write my word tonight and share them with you all.. I hope you all have a wonderful evening and a great day on Wednesday.. Till later.. Live life to the fullest… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

I want to thank my readers who come to read my words… Thanks so much… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ย ย Enjoy my photos.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Go west…

DSCN2366.JPG ย  ย  ย  ย ย  This an oldie but a goody..ย 

www.marionbell.com/go-west

This will be my banter for Monday September 30th…

Hello to everyone:: I hope all is well with all of you… The weekend is now over, and for those who work it will be back to work again.. “I know, I know.” That’s a dirty word to say on a Sunday evening.. But reality will be kicking you in the butt soon enough.. I feel pain for all of you that drag yourselves into work on Monday.. But I guess the all mighty dollar has to be earned.. Anyways, Monday is the last day of September… I sit here and wonder again as I always do.. “What has happened to this month??”ย  Today, Sunday has been down right cold where I am living.. I guess fall has given us notice that it is here.. “I wish to ask a question”… “Does Indian summer come after the first frost, or in September???”ย  I would appreciate someone letting me know the answer to my question.. Also, Thanksgivings day is coming pretty soon.. I see a lot of decorations, and small squashes in the stores.. The dollar stores have displays for the table, and outside your home… You can purchase the goods to whip up a wreath for your front door.. All these items for a dollar?? NO.. They are sold for dollars… Not a dollar like we used to pay.. Now they are one dollar plus several dollars.. The place is not cheap anymore.. But it is a convenient place to pick up anything that is cheaply made.. No matter what we all seem to visit there from time to time…

DSCN2364.JPG ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  This is the drivers seat of this Winnebago..

I wish to chat about this beautiful machine from the past.. We entered this motorhome and found the old style steering wheel and column with the gear shift right there.. Also I have never been in one before and noticed that the passenger seat is made for two people, not just one.. That was fascinating to me and a bit curious at the same time.. The interior was decorated with the old styled colors on the furniture, and on the walls.. I love the size, and convenience of the kitchen and washroom areas.. This vehicle must have been a sight to see when it was new and rolledย  off the assembly line.. Beautiful… You had to have a fist full of dollars to buy that one… ๐Ÿ™‚ ” Go West son, they said…” Are you kidding me?? There isn’t any going west for this person.. It seems that the west gets the snow much earlier than most of us.. This weekend Alberta was looking at snow on Saturday, and Sunday.. The report said that the amounts would be up to 60 cm. of snow.. That’s why I’m not going west.. Saskatchewan, Manitoba and northern Ontario will be looking at rain but no snow.. Thank goodness for that.. All that white stuff can stay out west till I find my long johns, and that could take me along time.. For all those that have never had the chance to experience a pair of long johns.. They are winter under wareย  that keeps you warm, and sucks up the perspiration from your body.. They are also part of the layer system outdoor people ware.. First long johns, shirt and pants, a sweater, a coat and so on… ย 

DSCN2353.JPG ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  Another example of a vintage Glendale trailer..ย 

The inside of this trailer, it had been spruced up and looked darn beautiful… I like the choice of colors on the outside and on the inside.. It was tastefully decorated, and had a lot of people commenting on the inside.. Lets put it this way… I would have gladly stayed over in that trailer for week..ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Here in Canada the election campaigns are in full swing… With each candidate trying to convince the voters that they are better than the next guy, or gal.. I, like many have a hard time figuring out who is paying for the promises they are making.. Not one candidate has given that information up as of yet.. Heck, I’m just going to vote for the underdog.. Candidates seem to be living in a world where truth and honesty doesn’t mean a thing.. It’s perplexing and a joke to watch.. The things they promise will never be done with out the words of the party in second place.. There are rules and they are to be followed.. It’s a media circus, with twisted words and fingers pointing at the candidates with each word they say.. I’m glad I do not have to be in the drivers seat and navigate through this pile ofย  hollow promises..ย 

DSCN2351.JPG ย  ย ย  This is just one shot of the inside of the Glendale trailer….

As you can see the color scheme from the outside is drawn into the inside.. It is tastefully designed and caught the eye of many of the visitors who stopped by to take a peak inside, and ask question to the owners.. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ There are still a few more trailers that I have to showcase… I will be bringing a couple more trailers for you toย  enjoy on Tuesday.. You have a wonderful Monday and be safe.. I’m off and running… See ya later.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

I would like to tip my hat to all you wonderful readers out there who pop by to read my words.. Thanks… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Enjoy the photos.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Treading water…

 

DSCN2329.JPG ย  ย  ย  ย  This trailer was owned by two wonderful people…

www.marionbell.com/treading-water

This is my banter for Friday September 27th…

Hello everyone:: Today I had a good day that included blood tests.. It was time to get them again.. The hubby had his test as well.. ‘Two birds with one stone’.. ‘Done’.. There has been so much rain today that I really feel like I am treading water.. “I feel like I should have my pant legs hiked up, and my hip waders on”.. Now I know what the plants must be feeling like with all the rain.. I trust everyone had a great Thursday as we come even closer to the weekend..ย  Friday is nearing it’s entrance into this week.. “Is it just me, or has this week been going by fast”?? You would think that time would be slow, and drag on, especially when a person is retired.. I think that maybe keeping somewhat active makes the day fly by.. When I was at the lab today, I seen a poster that talked about your DNA and prescriptions.. They are calling that Treat G plus.. It helps the doctor and pharmacist to give you the right dose, and the right medications.. You go on line and pay for a kit, and it gets delivered to your home.. You get your kit, swab your cheek and mail it out.. What could be easier?? I read a piece on DNA and ancestry and how some people did not like the way some agencies wanted to have the information collected.. Is big brother watching us or what?? It’s scary to think of our DNA information being for sale on the market.. There was a pretty big up roar about privacy.. I think we would loose our privacy even more than we already have.. Heck, it’s bad enough an employer could google you and find out what you are doing on face book.. Keep the things you want secret, just that way, and don’t blab them on line.. Period!!!ย

I was quite surprised to see this Dragon fly land on the marker light of this trailer.. I took a few phots, and he never left.. The view must have great from up there.. A great way to hitch a ride to where ever this trailer was headed.. The ride would be less windy as this is the back of the trailer.. The dragon flies around the campers where plentiful and of different colors.. Most of them would not stay still long enough for my camera to capture them in a still photograph.. This was the only one that stood still.. Believe me I tried.. Funny thing, I did look pretty silly running after a Dragon fly.. I wondered why people were staring.. :O At least I was not flailing my arms around like I was being attacked by a swarm of angry bees.. “Wouldn’t that be pretty funny looking??” The group I was with would likely has gone home and left me behind.. ๐Ÿ™‚ No matter how you look at that it would have been out of the ordinary.. “Oh, by the way the inside of the trailer was quite nice, and was pretty well in it’s natural state..ย

The inside of this Boler trailer was beautiful yet playful as well.. The dรฉcor stood out as soon as you entered the door.. It seemed everyone loves a Boler trailer, and for many years they have been a favorite to all that dream of owning one.. The couple who own this trailer have had it since it was purchased by them many years back.. This 1972 Boler was actual built in Earlton Ontario Canada… Tested by time these small easy to tow trailers are sought after.. When someone puts one up for sale they are gone fast.. To renovate this kind of trailer would be a labor of love.. If I had one I think I would only up date that which needed to be up dated.. I’ve never owned one but I sure would love to have one.. I have rebuilt a Glendale trailer before, and I must say it turned out pretty darn classy.. There are very expensive trailers that spoil people with all the gadgets of a modern home.. Heck, they are like a home on wheels.. There are some trailers that are becoming smaller, with all the needed features for comfort.. We only need a small Trailer as it is only the two of us..ย 

DSCN2313.JPG ย  ย  ย  This combined Boler and Car are eye catchers..

This is an attractive combination.. This would turn heads as it rolls down the road.. Or even through the busy city main drag.. Can you imagine the comments that people would be saying about this beauty.. It’s an eye catcher, and the owners are very proud of their rolling home on wheels.. This has been fun bring these pieces of art into the light.. There will be more trailers featured in the week coming up.. You take care, and be safe out there.. See you Monday, I gotta go.. Till later.. Treat others well and they will treat you the same… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Rain drops…

This is my banter for Wednesday September 25th…

Hello all you lovely people:: Today (Tuesday) has been somewhat on the cold and miserable side.. Rain drops could be seen falling abundantly or just a few at a time.. There seems to be no clearing in sight.. I dressed myself in jeans, tee shirt, and warm winter style socks and a big warm sweater.. My hands are freezing, and if I placed them on your back.. I would guess that you would be jumping and shivering like crazy.. I kid you not.. My nose is even cold.. As I was cooking wings in the oven, I placed my hands in there to stop them from hurting.. They say, cold hands means a warm heart, but what does a cold nose mean.. I can’t wait for the real cold to show up NOT!! That’s the time when my nose is always red.. I look like a drunk even though I seldom drink.. I have a couple coolers that have been in the fridge for over six months.. That’s how much I drink… Getting back to the wonderful days we have been having.. pretty soon we will be taking down the gazebo and hiding away the lawn furniture.. I don’t know about your yards, but we are getting a lot of leaves on the ground already.. Last year the trees around here were definitely not ready for the white powder.. I even had plants that would not give up… They just kept growing even after the first snow fall.. I guess no matter where you live the weather has it’s way of showing you the seasons..

I’ve been pretty lazy today.. I have been working on the props I have, but other than that I have not done anything.. I feel tired, and I think it may have something to do with the weather.. All I wanted to do is lay on the couch wrapped in a warm blanket and sleep.. But I did not do that, and chose to work on the props I will be selling.. I have this one piece to sell and I have no idea what to sell it for.. It is a one of a kind and there is no other like it in the world.. To me it is worth lots but to others it may not be as pricey.. There are always people who expect something for nothing.. I should take it to Spirt Halloween and ask what they think it is worth.. I’ve had a lot of people want it.. But, I would not sell at the time.. I have to take photos of all the props before I can sell.. I will be at that point by the weekend.. I know what I’m going to be doing this weekend…ย

This evening I chose to cook chicken wings for dinner along with fries.. I decided to mix it up and bake them in the oven with shake n bake.. Did they ever turn out really good.. The meat was so tender that it fell right off the bone… If you ever want to try wings this way you won’t be sorry… I cooked them in the oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.. I did two fully pack cookie trays of wings (about 75 wings), so time will vary for what you want to cook.. Oh and my guys eat a fair amount of food.. I have a few left over, but that will be eaten pretty fast as a snack.. I also whipped up a batch of moist brownies.. I did the taste test and they where very tasty.. Yum!! I could eat quite a few more of those, but those brownies go straight to my waist line.. ‘Darn’.. Like all yummy things we eat.. Oh well, now I go and cry over the one I ate while I look in the mirror.. ‘You know, I think my mirrors have been made like the ones at the carnival’.. ‘I’m sure of it’.. “Really”!!!

Can you see what I meant by the twisted flowing lines.. It’s absolutely beautiful.. Can you imagine the pain staking hours it took to design and complete such a creative piece of art… There is a special talent this artist has, and he or she uses it well.. It’s getting late on this Tuesday night and I have to get off here.. I still have a couple things to finish up before I turn in for the night.. I wish all of you a wonderful Wednesday, and good fortune… Till later.. Enjoy your Wednesday… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

I wish to send out thanks to all my readers who read my words.. Thank you for your time… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ย ย Enjoy my photos.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Drizzle…

DSCN2116.JPG ย  ย  ย  ย  Down by the water on a beautiful day…

This is my banter for Tuesday September 24th…

Howdy:: How has everyone been doing?? I hope Monday passed by like a lightening strike… I also hope your family members are all well, and safe.. My day started off not too badly.. When I let the pups out in the morning there was puddles of water everywhere.. I tip toe through the puddle to the gate that keeps critters off the porch.. It was not hot and muggy which made a pleasant day for having all the windows open to air out the house.. The breeze was some what on the shiver kind of cool.. But that didn’t bother me, as it was a pleasant surprise.. We did have one good down pour later in the afternoon, and a bought of drizzle that hung around for a measure of time.. I did notice that the plants were perkier than the last while.. The rain had worked it’s magic on the plants over night, and later in the day.. I don’t have to water them for at least two days.. I like that, as I tend to get muddy and wet during the watering process.. I did some chores around the house, and vacuumed the rugs.. Looks a bit more tidier now in the living room.. It won’t take long for the fuzzy dogs to mess things up again.. These dogs are my children and can make messes.. The youngest one likes all her toys put out of her basket all over the rug, so she can choose what she wants.. She’s my little deva.. All Doo has to do is walk and the hair falls from her coat.. She’s a shedder… And the middle one just likes to be comfortable in her blankets..ย 

DSCN2120.JPG ย  ย  This fella came to visit and stayed, while I took his picture…

During the past couple days I have been working on all my Halloween props getting them ready to sell on line.. I have a few pieces that I created from scratch, and others that I have picked up along the way.. At mine and the hubbies age our warranties have expired, and a lot of our parts are starting to break down.. Don’t you just hate when that happens.. We don’t spend a lot of time in the cold, as we seize up.. I used to love being outside waiting for the little ones… I would even dress up and be a kid again for the night.. Now, I will just keep warm inside.. ๐Ÿ™ As I said I am working on getting them all ready for sale.. I don’t really know what to charge, but I will figure it out.. I got a little time left yet.. I have never stored my props outside… They have always been in the garage or the basement.. Most people that see the room I kept them in, call it the room with the dead people.. I just chuckle when they say that.. Once in an inspection I failed to warn the people of the room.. They weren’t too happy.. I think it scared them.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

DSCN2148.JPG ย  ย ย  This beautiful flower caught my eye and here it is…

This flower was at the water front and I believe it’s strange design and color had me fascinated… I love the water front as it calms the soul, and sooths the stress away.. Who could not enjoy a place so peaceful.. Today, the Blue Jay returned to the bird feeder, and started to squawk… God he is a very noisy bird when he wants to be.. I could see him standing on the bird feeder looking straight at the door.. He wanted to be fed.. What is it with some of these birds?? Like I’m supposed to jump to my feet and fill the bird feed.. And now!! After I wasn’t there right away, he noticed the food that was left in the feeder.. I haven’t seen much of the Cardinal lately.. I wonder where they are these days.. The rabbit hasn’t been around much since the skunk got here.. The stinky thing has driven away quite a few critters.. The skunks had been trapped and where waiting for a pick up by the city.. The city was going to relocate them in the wild.. Some woman felt sorry for them and let them loose the day the city showed up.. Now we have them visiting our yards again.. What is the matter with some people???

DSCN2147.JPG ย  This silver goose watches over the water front.. :O

This beautiful silver bird is stunning… The artist who created this thought of every twist and turn of the metal.. When standing under the bird, you can gaze up at the twisted flowing lines.. My breathe was taken away by it’s beauty.. Well, I’m on the move.. Take care of your loved ones, and be safe out there… Till later.. Smile and see how many people return a smile back… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you to all my wonderful readers… Happy to know you all.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ย ย Photos are my game.. Enjoy them… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
