|IT WAS A FINE MORNING FOR A BIT OF PRIMPING AND PREENING|
With a brisk sunny 45F morning country road walk Pheebs and I managed to get the day started off on the right foot. A cold icy wind from the south tweaked my ears but we buttoned up and pushed through it. Following our walk and wanting to get a few outside things done at home we headed west on Bayfield River Road.

|SUNLIGHT FINALLY MAKES ITS WAY INTO ONCE DARKENED FORESTS|
A lot of leaves falling from the trees now so I did some more raking trying to stay ahead of it. It's that time of year when the leaf blower really comes in handy. Had a few things to do in our little 26' Class C Winnebago so I busied myself with that for a while as well. With all these pine trees around the needles keep getting into Scooter's roof vents.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A young man asked an old rich man how he made his money. The old guy fingered his worsted wool vest and said, "Well, son, it was 1932. The depth of the Great Depression. I was down to my last nickel." "I invested that nickel in an apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for ten cents." "The next morning, I invested those ten cents in two apples. I spent the entire day polishing them and sold them at 5:00 pm for 20 cents. I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I'd accumulated a fortune of $1.37." "Then my wife's father died and left us two million dollars."
