Tonight will see the rain ending this evening then cloudy. The overnight low will be 1C(34F).
------------------------------------------
I had a good day yesyerday. I got off of my fanny and took Abbey on her walk along the gopher trails but there were no bunnies for her to chase.
We stopped and talked with a trucker. I thought he may have been given bad directions and couldn't find where to deliver his load. That seems to happen quite often and I've helped a few lost souls get home quicker. it turned out this one was just filling in his log book. He was a lucky man, his wife was the second driver. What a great way to do a job that normally keeps you away from home most of the time.
The Queen has started another geneaolgy project for a lady at work. It's funny, her mother was in the same class as me in high school. I remeber one time when I was a teenager walking with a friend looking for a place to party we knocked on a door at a home that had the lights on. It turned out to be her home and she invited us in and we partied untill the wee hours with her and her husband. Gosh I was a bad boy in my youth!
Strange how the lady keeps popping back into my life. it must be at least 45 years since me and my buddy knocked on her door and I don't think I've seen her since. The lady is now divorced from the husband of 45 years ago and lives in British Columbia.

Good Mornin' Tony!

Glad you're making the most out of your seasonably and/or unseasonably chilly days in La Prairie.

Yesterday, in Mass., our record high temp of 91F was pretty amazing and has put us in a sort of time warp. Lately, we're going from April to mid-July at the drop of the hat. Can't really complain, though, of this unseasonable warmth and sunshine, but hope we can get out of this lengthy critical drought. Supposedly, we could finally receive much welcomed relief by Sunday night into Monday with possible heavy rainfall giving us an inch in accumulation. It would certainly help the accompanying high pollen (A-Choo!!!!!) count to boot.

By and by, I, too, can relate to those partying days of your youth but, like with you, they've long since become just a distant memory to me now. LOL! Fortunately, I quit while still intact. LOL! Now, it's a party when I can find the time to watch a good movie on TV without falling asleep in the middle. LOL! Time and circumstances sure change in a blink of an eye don't they?

Have a great Tuesday!
