Took Chase for a brief walk to visit Morley, who gave us the remaining quarter of the ham he won. Yum for Chase! Then I drove to Earl's for the oil change. I'd already bought a jug of Castrol (the hippest oil for sportly cars), so he only charged $15 - as usual. He also installed the washer nozzle from another make of car, so altho it doesn't work perfectly, it does work. I'm thinking while I'm in TO I could order the proper Sube part from the dealership on Eastern Avenue. Maybe I should phone in advance for this.
I had a brisk walk in Greensides Farm while Earl did the oil change. Bitterly cold here today. I had to wear my winter parka again & mitts! Earl asked me to keep an eye out for the Virgin Mary miracles at the farm, & I did sit on a bench by one of the stations for a few minutes. No miracles, but then I don't expect much of the Christian crowd, either here or in the transcendental realms.

I did see a bluebird in the last field as I was clambering down the hill ... enough of a miracle for me - I don't remember seeing another bluebird in my lifetime, altho I must have. At first I thought it was a bluejay, but then I took a closer look, & it was definitely the smaller bluebird. Seeing it gave me an earworm for the old Disney song, Mr. Bluebird on my shoulder - arrggghhh ; )
