Sunshine:)) Need I say more? Well, I guess I better. Pheebs and I headed out straight away to our country road walking spot but it was more than just for a walk. I knew there to be more broken corn cobs along the outer row of the east side recently harvested cornfield. Despite the icy cold north wind, I was able to find half a dozen complete cobs and another dozen or so broken cobs. Then, to add a bonus to my corn collection I found a corn spill just up the road which, with the cobs already in my pail, nearly filled it up. Then, even a little further up the road, I found a real 'bonanza' of corn spilled beside the road in the grass. However, my big frog-catching white pail was pretty much full so I had no room to scoop it up. The first thing I did when we got back home was to check Sunday's weather and with it calling for snow I figured I had better get back out there and scoop up that corn while it was still dry and not buried under forty feet of snow. So, that is what I did. With today's haul, the birds and squirrels should be in good shape this winter, and maybe some bunnies too. I will keep my bucket and shovel in the Jeep for a while in case we come across any more corn spills. Always better to have too much than not enough.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( Joe from northern Montana, heard a rumor that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all walked on water on their 21st birthdays. So, on his 21st birthday, Joe and his good friend Brian headed out to the lake. "If they did it, I can too!" he insisted. When Joe and Brian arrived at the lake, they rented a boat and began paddling. When they got to the middle of the lake, Joe stepped off of the side of the boat... and damn near drowned. Furious and somewhat shamed, he and Brian headed for home. When Joe arrived back at the family farm, he asked his grandmother for an explanation. "Grandma, why can I not walk on water like my father, and his father, and his father before him?" The feeble old grandmother took Joe by the hands, looked into his eyes, and explained, "That's because your father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were born in January... you were born in July, dear."
