With both Kelly and I being sunshine people we never really got our morning off the ground. Turned out to be a 51F inside day with only a few forages out the door to walk around in circles for half a minute then re-enter the coach and wait a couple hours for the next brief outside circle tour.

|THAT'S ONE MIGHTY BIG HORN THIS TRUCK'S GOT ON ITSELF|
|AND OF COURSE HERE IS THE MANDATORY BULLET HOLE IN THE PASSENGER SIDE WINDOW|
Late this afternoon we could hear gunfire somewhere behind us not too far away. Hearing guns going off out here in the Southwest is nothing unusual but I was curious to see just what was being shot it. Stepping out of the coach I determined right away the gunfire was coming from the area where I had come across the above photos. I walked out to the road and could see a couple figures where the junk pile was. They were busy plugging the junk pile with more lead. With the amount of bullet holes in all that junk this morning I figured it was all plenty well dead already. But apparently not. These two guys were busy killing it even more. I don't know what the obsession is for males and their guns to keep shooting holes in stuff all the time.

How many telemarketers does it take to change a light bulb?
Only one, but they have to do it while you're eating dinner.
And a simple typing error sure got this fella into trouble. A husband, while on a business trip sent an email to his wife saying, "I wish you were here." The message received by the wife was, "I wish you were her."
Ottawa know you're telling the truth?
After church on Sunday morning, a young boy suddenly announced to his mother, "Mom, I've decided I'm going to be a minister when I grow up.""That's okay with us," the mother said, "But what made you decide to be a minister?" "Well," the boy replied, "I'll have to go to church on Sunday anyway, and I figure it will be more fun to stand up and yell than to sit still and listen."
