Just asleep late Thursday night and 'ka-boom'...thunder!! Asleep again for a while and 'ka-blamosplasho'...rain pounding on our steel roof. With that thunder and rain came much warmer temperatures and instead of waking up to temps in the low 40s today I opened the patio door right beside my living room recliner to a cloudy 72F morning, and that was quite alright with me as long as the temperature stayed there and didn't go gallivanting off into the upper '70s and '80s somewhere!! A mad dash to the Jeep through the raindrops and Pheebs and I were off. Knowing country roads would be a soggy mess we stayed on pavement taking a drive into and around Bayfield.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( One day, a blonde guy's neighbor goes over to his house, sees the guy crying, and asks him what happened. The guy said that his mother had passed away. The neighbor made him some coffee and calmed him down a little and then left. The next day the neighbor went back over to the house and found the man crying again. She asked him why he was crying this time. The blonde guy said, "I just got off of the phone with my sister. Her mother died too!"--------------------------------------
Congo out, I'm grounded!
A wife chewed out her husband at the company picnic a while back. "Doesn't it embarrass you that people have seen you go up to the buffet table five times?" "Not a bit," the husband replied. "I just tell them I'm filling up the plate for you."
