HURRICANE ARTHUR'S WINDS


Patience is a virtue!
How many times have I heard this being said to me 
as I sit 
DOODLE PATIENTLY ~~


waiting for a chance to romp in this field 
just like these peeps
in the middle of Hurricane Arthur.


even through the windows 
at Daddy Jim's retro shop
you could FEEL the power of the wind


Finally I made it to the slopes


and up the trail to the middle field


wondering if Mr. Orangie
was coming out to play


Not today 
I guess
too much wind
the velocity was ear splitting


with that realization I decided that I should quickly fill up on salad greens
before I blew away


Gees, where is Jim?
This fellow isn't Jim
and those ladies aren't either.


 I know exactly where he is hiding,
inside MacDonald House
playing with his retro goodies
getting them ready
for the hordes of peeps
that are coming this way to see
Hurricane Arthur!!

    1. The customers hopefully will buy up everything today, Sunday.

      The parking lots are all open today so the slightly irate visitors can park and enjoy their visits!!

    1. We were so very thankful that our power stayed on. Other parts of NS and NB lost power and still have none as of Monday as I tell you !!

    1. An unexpected hurricane and in our case no rain ~~ just plenty of wind. Our world was on the right side of the hurricane trail so we got wind while those on the left side got rain!
