We had ourselves a cloudy but clear and cold rainless morning so Pheebs and I slipped out to our country road walking spot. However, a farm tractor plowing up a harvested corn field had really chewed up the already muddy road so we didn't get a walk in. Undaunted, we did do a little countryside drive around.
Late Friday afternoon Kelly ordered us up a pizza, so at 5:30 in the darkness of early evening I piled into the Jeep and headed out the driveway for Bayfield to pick it up. Well, it's lucky I even found Bayfield. I can't even remember the last time I drove the Jeep at night but it has to be a couple of years at least. I've also never paid much attention to the glaze forming on the plastic headlight cover. When I pulled out of the Park and headed down the road it was like I was driving by candlepower. And yes, my headlights were on. One candle in each headlight. No problem I thought so I switched on my high beams and 'oh wow' it was definitely better....I was now driving with lantern power. One buggy lantern in each headlight. Well, needless to say, I dimly made it into Bayfield and back with the Pizza and didn't bonk into anything along the way. Next time I head out at night I'll be sure to take the Subaru with its much newer and more advanced lighting system and clear plastic headlight covers.

Al's Music Box:)) It Never Rains In California is a 1972 song jointly written and composed by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood and sung by Hammond, a British-born singer-songwriter. The lyrics of "It Never Rains In Southern California" tell a first-person story of a showbiz aspirant whose attempts to break into entertainment were failures, but who wants to hide that fact from those he had left behind to pursue his dreams. Instrumental backing was provided by L.A. session musicians from the Wrecking Crew. The song appears on Hammond's debut album of the same name.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A Jesuit was out for a drive and crashed into another car, only to discover that the other driver was a Franciscan.“It was my fault,” each insisted—as is only right and proper with religious men.Concerned, the Jesuit said, “You look badly shaken up, Father. You could probably use a good stiff drink right now to calm down.”He produced a flask and the Franciscan drank from it and said, “Thank you, Father; I feel much better now. But you’re probably shaken up too. Why don’t you have a drink as well?” “I will,” the Jesuit replied, “but I think I’ll wait until after the police have come.”

I work in a busy office, and when a computer goes down it causes quite an inconvenience. Recently one of our computers not only crashed, it made a noise that sounded like a heart monitor.
"This computer has flat-lined," a co-worker called out with mock horror. "Does anyone here know how to do mouse-to-mouse?"
