Hi everyone ..
Since I am kinda unsure as to how to do the 'link' thing .. I decided to just do it this way .. will post a note in the other forum as well.
The BOYS made it in fine shape Susan !!! I have safely stashed their travelling case (in case my 'forgetter. whips into full on FORGET mode everyone remember LINEN CLOSET).
Today will be an 'around the house day' for them with some trips outside as I am baking pies and trying to catch up on my EVER mounting housework. Tomorrow I am on call with TBay police .. so .. chances are the boys won't get the TBay tour til the weekend .. unless I take'em to the Police Station with me .. which I am apt to do.
Have attached a pic of them "warming up' in the sun on the kitchen table .
WOoooooooo Hoooooooo .. let the fun begin !! (and I do NOT mean housework) !! LoL
GNOMES on the go in THUNDER Bay !!
Hi everyone ..
Hi again :-)
Thanks Joanne for the link :-)
Marilynne has finished the pies .. a fresh pumpkin and a fresh apple .. the house smells SO nice !!
We'd like to try some of the pie .. but M says it's time to water the house plants .. and THEN .. outside we go to see what we can get into ..
M took our pic with the pies !!
Okee dokee .. Marilynne is LOVIN the company .. she says ,, since her middle name is PROCRASTINATION .. she can leave the housework alone for a little bit .. we did get to help her with a few of her 'indoor jungle' places though .. and .. we met LILLY .. Lilly seemed to think Bullwinkle was worth a few extra kisses :-)
A few more pics and we are off to MAYBE feed the deer some apple peels and cores .. YAY !!
SO .. now we have to take a bit of a break .. we'll be back later though ..
M is a bit concerned as her camera has developed a wee idiosyncracy .. and she's going to have to work it out !!
Yummy lookin' pies, Marilynne! And Lily is adorable. Looks like the boys are in for treat in Thunder Bay...
Thanks Don .. one is being donated (apple pie) the other is a keeper .
I have 3 more pics to post .. but first I want to ask 'How many pics is too many pics'. I am thinking that perhaps I'll quit with the 'around the property' pics (after these 3) and will wait til I am out and about on the TOWN ? I fer sure don't want to bog us down !!
Happily the camera problem was just a case of needing new batteries .
We can never have TOO MANY pictures M!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Agreed! Sure looks like you have nice place there, Marilynne.
It's a large property and if I am thankful for one thing it's the fact that my very best friend who moved here from Toronto 3 years ago, is a professional landscaper !!
She works as head gardener/landscaper at a local cemetery (has won 2 awards) but .. spends most of her down time here working around the yards and LOVING it ..
Thanks for your input .. :-)
Marilynne - you sure tempted them letting them sit next to those pies. I bet they were starving after their long trip.
So glad to see them safe & sound, and rested.
Yummy looking pies :-)
It was a stretch trying to keep'em away from the pies .. but I was able to :-)
One of the pies is now gone .. it was for a bake sale at our local AIDS Committee .. I bake monthly for their fund raising Bingos .. this is just a little extra for a Fall Tea.
Well .. I am gonna 'Live on the Edge' today .. I am on call with the Police .. BUT .. am still going to start my 'Tour of Thunder Bay' with the Boys. Am taking my bud along, so, if I get a call the boys will be placed in her trust and they will all be safely ensconsed at a TIMMIES til I'm done my call. That's the ONE bad thing about living in the country .. you can't hop a bus to go home and a Taxi is $35. +
Time to get the boys up ..
WHEW !!!! Many miles and thankfully NO CALLS (yet) and I am home with the boys .. they're napping .. it's been an adventurous day for them, and I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute :-)
There are MANY pics to follow .. so .. sit back and enjoy "SOME" of Thunder Bay :-)
Marilynne and her friend stopped for a cup of coffee and we heard them talking about a FOX .. jeez .. Giants and now FOX .. we were again a bit curious but cautious !!
Well .. the FOX .. was TERRY FOX .. and it was wonderful to see his statue and listen to Marilynne read about him to some German tourists who couldn't read English .. she also explained OUR significance to them .. they took our picture !!!
Last relaxing picture ...
After we were done at the Terry Fox Monument .. Marilynne and her friend went for lunch .. we stayed in the car, we sure had lots to talk about as we have seen so much and have made so many memories over the past few months ..
We wanted to make sure Marilynne told all our other Hosts and Hostesses that we miss all of you .. we also wanted to have her mention that we are so looking forward to our FUTURE visits :-)
We have apparently got a 'few' more places to visit on the weekend .. and I think that MAYBE on Monday Marilynne will be sending us on to White Lake ON .. sounds like a very nice place :-)
Hope "the boys" are enjoying the lovely scenery of Thunder Bay as much as I am. :)
Fantastic pictures! Terry makes me cry too. What adventures the boys have been up to! Now, White Lake is just a wee village, I hope they will not be bored here, but that will not be an option - I'll just keep them real busy! We'll see what we can come up with for the lads. Looking forward to greeting them next week!
Good morning ..
Getting ready to get 'on the move' with the Boys :-)
Sandy .. I looked up White Lake last evening .. WOW .. must be some purdy where you are. From what I gather you are between Marathon and Wawa ?? The more I thought about it .. the more curious I got .. so .. I called up my neice, the SUPER CAMPER, and .. yesirree, she has been to White Lake Provincial Park several times .. says it is absolutely the best fishing lake they have been to .. summing it up .. she spent close to an hour talking about the Park and the surrounding area, so, I do believe you'll have no problem keeping the boys busy :-)
Today we are attempting ..... Kakabeka Falls, Old Fort William, and Mount McKay ... should be fun :-)
And after a visit with Sandy do they go to me or to threegardeners? Maybe the three of us can meet up somewhere. Looks like I might see them in time for Halloween of the beginning of Nov.
I loved the the tour of TB, Marilynne.
