It was a bitingly cold north wind that thwarted our country road walk plans. Arriving at our spot this morning, I stepped out of the Jeep under overcast skies and then quickly stepped right back in again. I had neglected to factor in the wind chill and not thought to dress warmer for that. I guess my mind was off thinking about other things again.
THE DARK-EYED JUNCOS ARE BACK FOR ANOTHER WINTER IF FARMER'S DON'T HARVEST THEIR CORN SOON THEY MIGHT NEED A SNOWPLOW ON THE COMBINE
In Saturday's post, I had a number of Autumn photos I had taken as I drove around the perimeter of Bayfield's Clan Gregor Square. Below is an aerial view of Bayfield including the Square. The east looking photo was taken on October 18th by Papple Aviation.
A MEETING OF THE RUMPS
Al's Music Box:)) Sleepwalk by Santo and Johnny from their 1959 album, 'Santo and Johnny'. As children, both Santo and Johnny Farina were encouraged by their father, Tony, to learn the steel guitar and write their own music. This music would be recorded on a Webcore Tape Recorder their father had bought for them. Unable to fall asleep one night after a gig, the Farina brothers decided to write some music, using the tape recorder to first record the harmonies to what would become "Sleep Walk". After adding and finalizing the steel guitar melody, Johnny Farina believed they had a hit song, so he spent a year and a half talking with various music publishers about the possibility of professionally recording "Sleep Walk".
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Did you hear about the jailed dude who was found in his cell with half a dozen bumps on his head? He tried to hang himself with a bungee cord.
- Hear about the dude who wanted to be an explorer? He bought a piece of sandpaper thinking it was a map of the Sahara Desert.
Two children ordered their mother to stay in bed one Mother's Day morning. As she lay there looking forward to breakfast in bed, the smell of bacon floated up from the kitchen. But after a good long wait, she finally went downstairs to investigate. She found them both sitting at the table eating bacon and eggs. "As a surprise for Mother's Day," one explained, "we decided to cook our own breakfast."
