Had it not been for a cold biting westerly wind again this sunny 43F morning might it have been doable. I guess I am just not a cold weather outdoors person. Never really have been. However, we did settle for a short Jeep ride into Bayfield and then southeast of Bayfield snagging a few photos along the way.
HEADING OUT OF OUR PARK I AM ENCOURAGED BY A SPLASH OF SUNSHINE A LOT OF SAILBOATS IN WINTER STORAGE OVER THERE A CURIOUS-LOOKING TRUCK AT A BAYFIELD GAS PUMP THIS MORNING....PROBABLY HEADED FOR THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS OF THE SOUTHWEST AND SPEAKING OF CURIOUS LOOKING..... HEADING OUT INTO THE COUNTRYSIDE WHAT WOULD MY BLOG BE IF I DIDN'T HAVE A PICTURE OF A TRACTOR OR A COW OR SOMETHING
Home again I did rake up some leaves and pine needles in the driveway. Not as much wind here in the protection of the pine forest. My afternoon was a repeat of the day before. And the day before that. And......well you get my drift.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( An elderly man goes into his doctor’s office for an annual physical.

I haven't felt better in years. This just can't be true. Isn't there anything I can do?" After a moment, the doctor says: "Well, you might start going down the street to that new health spa to take a mud bath every day." "And that will cure me?" Bill asks excitedly. "No," replies the doctor: "but it will get you used to the dirt."

"You should be ashamed of yourselves," said the teacher, "When I was your age, I didn't even know what a lie was." The boys looked at each other......then handed the ten-dollar bill to the teacher.
