Good 53º cloudy morning.
We ended up with .28" in the first hour.
You will love this... the disappearing car trick... sent to me by Deeewayne Honeee. (aka Duane Preimsberger! for you LASD folks.)
Jerry and I went to a party for Duane, a promotion party or birthday or something, I can't remember. Anyway, his wife, Judy, got him a Dolly Parton look-alike to sing to him. Her name was Polly Darton and she called him "Deeeewayne Honeeee". It stuck. (Eh, Duane?)
Just as a side note..... I am down 6 pounds in 14 days!!! Yaaaaaa hoooooooooo! The diet is easy and I am never hungry, and I can use my cooking creativeness .... a challenge, with prepared food. Now Nutri-System not only has dry packaged food they send frozen entrees as well. All good.
Yesterday I picked up a bunch of wood that was up on the hill and took it to the burn pile. Then I collected some rocks and put them on Yukon's grave. More to do, but enough bending over for one day. Pulled weeds. Vacuumed upstairs and the stairs. Huff puff huff puff...... Cleaned the carpet in my bathroom and blew the debris from all the winds, off the front porch.

Not a "Sleeper" Holiday. <g>
The yo-yo is certainly not a new creation; the famous toy has been around for nearly 3 millennia, popular in ancient Chinese, Greek, and Filipino culture. The yo-yo as we know it was introduced in the early 1900's by Donald F. Duncan, Sr., born on this very day. Coincidence??? LOL.
