Going through my Facebook page I seen a friend, Kathy Mercer, had posted a prayer on her status, which I read and almost immediately posted to my sister, Jeanne's Facebook page. The prayer was this:
"It has most certainly came a long way from this way back in the Spring before we could even get in to plant it for all the rain."
"My favorite spot to take a picture to show how much it is or has rained, as it puddles in this part of the driveway....lol."
There was finally a break in the rain around 11:00 p.m., so I took this window of opportunity to get downtown to pickup some van parts Rob had ordered, make a trip into the drugstore and pickup a card to mail to my Jeanne Weanne Beanne (my name for her). I managed to walk up the street from where I parked to the drugstore, then into one other store just before the skies opened up again and the rain came falling down.....lol.
Rob had woke up and was coming through town to fill up the Taxi when he seen me trying to make a mad dash up the street to our car.....he was kind enough to stop and drive me to our car. Thanks, again, Honey!
Rob came home from a Taxi run, so we had a supper of grilled marinated loin pork chops, corn on the cob and boiled beets......yummy! It wasn't long after we had finished our supper he was gone again on another call, then after 8:00 I wasn't to see him again until, I think it was, around 3:00 a.m. this morning?
Saturday evenings I love watching the "What's Cooking TV Show" on CityTV, if I am able to. Last night they had some really good recipes for Restaurant food made easy at home ! The one recipe inparticular I am interested in trying is the "Cheesy Stuffed Shells", and they made them so easy looking to make.
Here is the recipe:

I was just thinking, we have company coming for the Labour Day Weekend....watch out Doug & Vicki, you might very well be my "Guinea Pig" victims again, when it is my night to cook? LOL
Onto today's Wiarton Airport's Weather forecast:
I certainly hope it holds off until the laundry on my line has a chance to dry. Has not been a good weekend for the Motorcycle Toy Drive held yesterday, the Cape Croker Pow Wow, or Paisley's Annual Steam Engine Tractor Show......not nice at all Mr. Weatherman!
I had a very sad phone call from the family who had one of our pups when I returned back home Thursday morning. This female pup, who had adopted this wonderful family, had been hit by a car, and had not been able to recover from the injuries. It was a very difficult phone call for the family, as well as for myself. After we had spoken for sometime, and just before we said our goodbyes, Julie told me that she was happy they had called me, as I had made her feel much better about their loss.
I have lost two dogs and one cat on the roadway in the past, and it can happen just that fast....you can be the "best" pet owner in the Universe, and things just "happen", as in all of life moments, whether to a loved human or pet. Such is "life", and this is when we can find strength to continue on with our own life's in our consoling of one another.
There are lots of things I would like to get done today, but I will first have to get the energy together to get started. My "Crabby Cabbie" is sleeping, Bandit and Lexus are being very quiet at the moment. I think I will take advantage of the peace and quiet by starting my day off with a very long luxurious shower before I go any further with my day ahead, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
