A cool sun and cloud morning so Pheebs and I stirred us up some gravel with a country road stroll. Hadn't been over around the Hullett Marsh for a few weeks so after our walk we wandered ourselves over that way. Of course, I had forgotten about the mosquitos and biting deer flies so it wasn't long before we had to beat a hasty retreat back to the safe confines of the Jeep. Luckily, I was able to snap a few pics before we did that.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( The doctor entered the room and advised his patient that a brain transplant was the only remedy. "Fortunately" he continued, "this hospital has perfected the procedure, however, it is not yet available on the National Health and you will therefore have to pay. We have two brains in stock at the moment, a female brain costing $10,000 and a male brain at $50,000" "Why is the male brain so expensive?" asked the patient. "Because male brains are hardly ever used."
As a mother was bribing her little boy with a quarter so he would behave, she said, "Why do I always have to pay you to be good? Why can't you be good for nothing like your dad?"
