The cloudy gray morning didn't leave me with much inspiration earlier today. It was an hour's ride through the countryside for Pheebs and I with a stop at Richard and Gayles to see how they were doing. All was okay there as Richard brewed up some coffee. Kelly had her fourth good night's sleep so her days are feeling a tad better. An intermittent light rain front finally reached us just before noon and we've been a wee bit on the wet side ever since.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( Tom is applying for a job as a signalman for the local railroad and is told to meet the inspector at the signal box. The inspector decides to give Tom a pop quiz, asking: "What would you do if you realized that two trains were heading towards each other on the same track?" Tom says: "I would switch one train to another track." "What if the lever broke?" asks the inspector. "Then I'd run down to the tracks and use the manual lever down there," answers Tom. "What if that had been struck by lightning?" challenges the inspector. "Then," Tom continued, "I'd run back up here and use the phone to call the next signal box." "What if the phone was busy?" "In that case," Tom argued, "I'd run to the street level and use the public phone near the station." "What if that had been vandalized?" "Oh well," said Tom, "in that case I would run into town and get my Uncle Leo. This puzzled the inspector, so he asked "Why would you do that?" "Because my Uncle Leo has never seen a big train wreck."
