Needed the heater on in the Jeep when we started out first thing this morning.  Also made sure to wear a nylon jacket to ward off a cold wind when outside the Jeep.  Under clear blue skies it didn’t take long for things to warm up a tad and for me it was a perfect weather day with temps hanging out in the mid 60’s.  Couldn’t seem to get myself into travel or photo mode so Pheebs and I were back home shortly after we left.  Taking advantage of the cooler day I spent a few hours in the back  yard tearing down some old Virginia Creeper vines I had planted years ago.  Those vines had pretty much overgrown one of our sheds.  Luckily I didn’t encounter any problems with my wrist and was also able to begin the front yard clean-up now that the tree cutting is done.  Bit of a mess out there………………….



At the height of a political corruption trial, the prosecuting attorney attacked a witness. "Isn't it true," he bellowed, "that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?"  The witness stared out the window, as though he hadn't hear the question. "Isn't it true that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?" the lawyer repeated. The witness still did not respond.  Finally, the judge leaned over and said, "Sir, please answer the question."  "Oh," the startled witness said, "I thought he was talking to you."

  5. Do you want to know who invented the first snowplow that could be moved up and down from inside the vehicle???? My Dad did when he returned from WWII--on his jeep--up to that point once the plow was put on a vehicle it stayed down on the ground!! not joking--my dad invented alot of neat stuff--he just never had anything patented--even when he died at age 73 in 2000 he had a invention in his wood working shop that everyone else had to use by hand--his run off an garage door opener!! Now if he had just patented those things!!
