It was country road coffee and muffins time again this morning so my good buddy Richard picked me up at 9:30 and we were off for another enjoyable two hours of chit and chatter. And what a nice September morning and first day of Autumn it was too.

Finally, I was able to get myself into some semblance of a work mode today so I grabbed my big pail and fishnet. It was time for my annual Frog round-up. Amazingly, I caught eight frogs in less than five minutes. That, was the easy part because the remaining half dozen or more frogs left are wary and will be harder to catch. With the eight frogs in my big pail, I hoisted it into the wheelbarrow and took the scrambling froggy gang a short distance to the Park's large pond, carefully descended to the water's edge, and eased the little fellers into their digs.
AN RV PARK?? NOPE, AN OLD ABANDONED TRAILER IN THE BUSH THESE ARE THE FIRST TWO FROGS I CAUGHT MY BIG FROG PAIL IS FILLING UP FAST IT TOOK ME LESS THAN A MINUTE TO WHEELBARROW THE GUYS OVER TO THE BIG POND HERE I GO DUMPING THEM IN
After dragging my heels on the Jeep decision for over a month now I finally hauled out my cleaning supplies early this afternoon and got at the job of cleaning the Jeep up. Just as I would never go to a medical appointment without having a shower first I didn't want Libby going to a garage appointment without first getting a good clean-up either. I haven't made that appointment yet but I intend to call the garage Monday and get the Jeep booked in to fix that starting problem, whatever it is once and for all. Enough is enough is enough already!!!!

Although Kelly is doing better than earlier in the week she is still having problems with weakness. She couldn't walk too far with Pheebs this morning before having to turn around and come back. Some of that weakness may be from the hospital stay and the rest being anemia.
ALL SPIFFED UP AND READY TO GET FIXED
Al's Music Box:)) Stayin' Alive by The Bee Gees from their 1977 album, 'Saturday Night Fever'. Some people don't like disco music, but I am not one of them. To me, disco music was feeling-good music both vocally and instrumentally. I loved those disco beats and the 'Saturday Night Fever' album is a great example of those beats. That era was back in my drinking days when I loved the lighted dance floors, disco balls, and all the glitzy lighting effects. Mesmerizing. Musically, it was a visual era to behold and remember. I just wish I could remember more of it:((
GROANER'S CORNER:(( The beguiling ideas about science quoted here were gleaned from essays, exams, and classroom discussions. Most were from 5th and 6th graders.
