Seeings how I am another day older today than I was yesterday, I figured I had to be a touch wiser too. Well, that's my wise old Owl theory anyway. So, using that scant touch of wiseness I figured a morning walk under a shady growth of trees would be a much smarter thing to do than a walk out in the open under the blazing hot morning Sun. So, with that wise thought in mind, Pheebs and I headed off into Bayfield where we soon had ourselves walking along a dirt road under the tall cool pine trees of the Bayfield Cemetery. Sometimes, even I am surprised by my occasional bursts of unexpected smarts and short wisps of wonky wisdom.
AND YES, WE DO HAVE FROGS IN OUR FRONT YARD FROG POND NEXT DOOR TO THE BAYFIELD CEMETERY IS THE BAYFIELD INTERNATIONAL CROQUET CLUB
