Another cold gray depressing day with even colder days on the way.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( Mike and Dan are in a mental institution which has an annual contest that picks two of the best patients and gives them two questions. If they answer correctly, they are released.  Mike is called into the doctor's office first. The doctor says, Mike, what would happen if I poked out one of your eyes?  Mike says I'd be half blind.  Thats correct. What would happen if I poked out both your eyes? I'd be completely blind. The doctor tells him that he is free to go. On Mike's way out he tells Dan the questions and answers.  The doctor asks Dan, What would happen if I cut off one of your ears?  Dan says I'd be half blind.  The doctor, slightly puzzled, continues, What would happen if I cut off both your ears?  I'd be completely blind.  Dan, how can you explain why you would be blind? asks the doctor.  Well, replies Dan, my hat would fall down over my eyes.



  1. 1st day of the winter storm warning here. OK so far. Just sleet and the town is shut down. You would laugh. But tomorrow, not so nice I'm afraid, with "freezing rain" which will be accumulations of ice on power lines, etc. Still, OK so far. No need to go anywhere, good books and food supplies. If the power goes off, it will be a major drag. If you poked your finger into the middle of Texas, that would be pretty close to where I live. Nowhere near a huge cold green lake in your photo.

  2. Cold down here today too. A stay inside day.
