I just got a copy of one of the newer John Hiatt CDs – you gotta hear this one song – I don’t vouch for the quality of the video (great concept, I’m going to record my next road trip like this) but the soundtrack is great. Continue Reading
I was off to see a client in the wonderful little city of Morden, Manitoba bright and early this morning. First, tho I awoke in the darkness and perfect silence of 5 a.m, no birds singing yet, no crikets chirping, the coyotes WERE waking up with that eerie, throaty yipping. It’s a very spooky sound to hear a pack of them, just as skin tingling as wolves for sure! That was the first thing.
The second was the spectacular sun rise. Seen here from my yard as I was piling all my gear into the car.
The third was the rainbow about 20 minutes later, after a pre-dawn shower. Can you imagine – a rainbow before the sun has cleared the horizon!?
The fourth, a great visit with wonderful clients – hugs all around!!! (sorry no photo)
The fifth, three, count ’em – three, pileated woodpeckers in a tree. Now this is a crap*y photo for sure, but I have never seen this before and it amazed me.
Pretty good day so far, eh?
Wait there’s more…
Temperature reached 30 degrees celcius – I LOVE it. After 3 years of miserable summer weather, this little heatwave is a gift.
11:00 pm – dark again, nice and warm outside still, and it’s the Perseid meteor shower – sometime this week, not sure when the peak is, but the late night dog walk was a chance to see a handfull of falling stars. awesome in the true sense of the word.
And now it’s past midnight so the day is officially over and nothing happened or didn’t happen to change this perfect day.
Have a perfect weekend.
At first glance this massive gap in the mountain side does seem pretty eyepopping…till you look closer at the size on the truck in the on-coming lane – the scale is even more unbelievable.
A massive scar upon the land, land created by unimaginable forces, and for millions of years it was “rock solid”, unchanged except for the impreceptable weathering of nature. And now it just serves to demonstrate that there’s just about nothing some dynamite and an engineer can’t do.
