A bit nippy this morning and when I got into the car and put my hands on the steering wheel I thought to myself, 'it probably won't be long and I'll have to be wearing my mitts'. Under mostly cloudy skies and my hip feeling sorta reasonable, Pheebs and did our half-mile country road walk without any problems. From there we wandered around a few country roads southeast of Bayfield before heading into Bayfield and stopping at the Porter's Hill Wild Bird Seed Company. Steve, the owner was dressed for summer with shorts on and I of course was dressed for Winter and looking like I had just staggered in out of a snowy blizzard. Two twenty-pound bags of birdseed and Pheebs and I were on our way home. I wasn't long in firing up our little gas fireplace in the sunroom to take the chill off. Surprisingly, the day later warmed up to a very pleasant 71F with a light breeze.

Feeling the need for a star fix, I donned my Winter jacket Tuesday night for the first time since last Spring, tippy-toed past a sleeping little doggy, slipped out to the carport, and quietly started up the Subaru. A few minutes later I was standing in awe on a darkened country road gazing up at a canopy of shimmering diamonds in the inky night sky. Stars for as far as I could see. On the western horizon as gold as gold could be hung the large crescent Moon just a few degrees above a distant cornfield. Not a creature was stirring this cool late summer's night, not even a Mosquito.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( Little Emily was complaining to her mother that her stomach hurt. Her mother replied, “That’s because it's empty. Maybe you should try putting something in it." The next day, the pastor was over at Emily's family's house for lunch. He mentioned having his head hurt, to which Emily immediately replied, "That's because it's empty. Maybe you should try putting something in it."
At the Olympics a man went up to a competitor who was carrying a very long pole."Are you a pole vaulter?" "No, I'm German, but how did you know my name is Walter?"
