|I DIDN'T HAVE ANY PHOTOS FOR TONIGHT'S POST SO I HAD TO DO A QUICK WALK AROUND OUR YARD AGAIN THIS AFTERNOON|
Expecting it to be raining this morning you can imagine my delight when I first opened my eyes and saw the morning's sun streaming through our big east-facing window. A nice start to the day until in my hazy morning fog I forgot to place my cup into my one-cup coffee maker and ended up with my morning coffee not in my tummy but all over the kitchen counter. (again) Not to worry, I didn't let this little glitch sink me and the day progressively got better. Besides, I knew this was the day Kelly was coming home, and how nice for her not having to drive through a predicted rainy day:)) But then I checked the weather map!! Oh-Oh, I could see rain approaching from the west, and knowing Kelly was heading west from Brockport New York I could see it was going to be close as to who would reach Bayfield first. The rain or Kelly?

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A certain private school in Washington recently was faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night, the maintenance man would remove them, and the next day, the girls would put them back. Finally, the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror. There are teachers, and then there are educators...
THAT IS SOME PRETTY STRANGE COMPANY ELLEN KEEPS
A religious education class was almost finished making their models of the nativity scene and one little boy had done a lovely job. Some animals, Mary, Joseph, three wise men, and shepherds were all there. However, the teacher noticed an extra, rather overweight man in the scene as well.“Who is that person?” she asked.“Oh, that’s Round John Virgin.”
