Rain ~ Larry & Karen ~ Soothing Video ~ Limericks ~ Bruiser ~ Balloon ~ Frogs

Good 45ยบ cloudy damp morning. Yesterday's rain was almost 1/4".

This is going around and I've gotten it from several folks. I LIKE it!!!

Yesterday friends Larry Tomes (LASD ret) and his bride Karen were going to be here in the early afternoon for a lunch at Tap Rock. They are on their way to Washington. Unfortunately they were going to make a pass through Crater Lake, but it was snowing up there and required chains. Detouring that, they called from Ashland and said they had breakfast not too long before that and thought lunch at this early hour was not good and wondered if I minded they kept on their long trek north. Of course not, they have a long drive ahead of them. Safe travels guys. Will catch up with you another time!
This is something very soothing... to alleviate the stress of your day... from my high school pal Mary (Fancher) Zavala...

Ok, the limericks Tuesday fostered the following ...
From Dan P:
There once was a man from Peru
Who thought limericks should end at line two
So I sent him the following:
There was a retired deputy named Dan
He was a displaced Scotsman from his clan
He liked to wear his kilt
Carrying a gun in his pouch gave him no guilt
Because we all know he's the MAN!
From Brooklyn Vivia:
There once was a nut named Sue,
Who always knew what to do.
She’d do it every day and
In the right way.
Because that’s the only way
         She knew
Dave was going to come up yesterday and fix the flat on his tractor, but it was pouring by the time he got off work. Tractor may sit up there in my pasture for awhile if this rain keeps up!

I can certainly understand why all 3 of his wives divorced him, but what I don't understand is why they married the creep in the first place! Money? Fame?

Just about 3 o'clock the rains started. Sometimes pretty hard.

The Bruise was in Dude's bed watching it on the porch! 

Dude was inside on his couch, watching out the glass door..... 

Later I looked out and saw something shiny up next to the fence. Remember when Mike saw a mylar balloon up in a tree???  Well, it's down...

I guess Yellins, Pattersons, and Corsos went to Jacksonville to the Schoolhouse Brewhouse to celebrate Dee's birthday yesterday. I had that thing with Larry & Karen that didn't work out and then Dave was supposed to be up here after 5 so I couldn't go. Will have to find out if that German Restaurant is good.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
