KELLY TOOK THIS PHOTO WITH HER BLACKBERRY OF OUR BACKYARD PRICKLY PEAR CACTUS THIS EVENING

It’s about a 5 second drive from Richard’s driveway to our driveway so I was waiting for him this morning.  It was his turn to chauffeur me around on our 2 hour plus country road coffee tour.  Blue sunny skies with warm temperatures made it a perfect time for we two manic Magpies to be out and about.  Pretty much ran the gamut of just about everything again.  Can you imagine two half stubborn and half memory challenged old Senior guys aged 79 and 72 respectively trying to convince each other that it would be a very wise move to ditch our archaic rotary phone mentality and truly get hip by getting ourselves into the ‘Smart Phone’ world.  No I can’t imagine it either but but that’s just one of the many topics that taxed our cobweb challenged brains this morning.  Richard with his old frayed straw hat and me with my 12 year old underwear on backwards………………

GROANER’S CORNER:(( A guy is walking down the street with his friend. He says to his friend, "I'm just a walking economy." His friend replies, "What do you mean?" "It's like this: My hairline is in recession, my stomach is a victim of inflation, and the combination of these factors is putting me into a deep depression.

  3. Stick with the rotary phone mindset, they last longer and don't get lost. I was so happy today to open your post and not see an painful pop up ad. Really loved the groaner, it hit my funny bone. Question..does the prickly pear survive outside in the cold Bayfield Winter? Looks beautiful.
