It was the sound of an overnight hard rain clanging on our steel roof that briefly had me awake a few times during the wee dark hours. Not the best way to start a new day. Those rains, although lighter, continued throughout the morning turning rural gravel roads into a quagmire of mud. Needless to say, Pheebs and I kept the Jeep out of all that and stuck to several paved roads for a half-hour cruise through the soggy countryside.

Al's Music Box:)) Suzanne is a song written by Canadian poet and musician Leonard Cohen in the 1960s. First published as a poem in 1966, it was recorded as a song by Judy Collins in the same year, and Cohen performed it as his debut single, from his 1967 album Songs of Leonard Cohen. "Suzanne" was inspired by Cohen's platonic relationship with dancer Suzanne Verdal. Its lyrics describe the rituals that they enjoyed when they met: Suzanne would invite Cohen to visit her apartment by the harbour in Montreal, where she would serve him Constant Comment tea, and they would walk around Old Montreal past the church of Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours, where sailors were blessed before heading out to sea. Cohen's recording was released as a single in 1968 but did not reach the music charts. The song only charted after Cohen's death in 2016.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Joan invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to her six-year-old daughter and said, 'Would you like to say the blessing?' 'I wouldn't know what to say,' the girl replied. 'Just say what you hear Mommy say,' Joan answered. The girl thought for a minute, then bowed her head and said, 'Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?'

A wife went to the police station with her next-door neighbor to report that her husband was missing. The policeman asked for a description. She said, "He's 35 years old, 6 foot 4, has dark eyes, dark wavy hair, an athletic build, weighs 185 pounds, is soft-spoken, and is good to the children." The next-door neighbor protested, "Your husband is 5 foot 4, chubby, bald, has a big mouth, and is mean to your children." The wife replied, "Yes, but who wants HIM back?"
