We got ‘em -- unfortunately. Today is Friday, August 21. Next Monday and Tuesday we are oudahere, birds included, while they tent this place and gas all the critters. So I won’t be anywhere near the computer for a few days after a Saturday posting.

Humor, real and imagined --

I dunno, this might offend some, but it really happened. This morning when Cliff got me up, I said to him that it wasn’t his fault, but I was both grouchy and grumpy.
CLIFF: What are you gonna do, vote Republican?



Three elderly men are at the doctor's office for a memory test. The doctor asks the first man, "What is three times three?"

"274" is his reply.

The doctor rolls his eyes and looks up at the ceiling and says to the second man, "It's your turn. What is three times three?"

"Tuesday," replies the second man.

The doctor shakes his head sadly then asks the third man, "Okay, your turn. What's three times three?"

"Nine," says the third man.

"That's great!" says the doctor. "How did you get that?"

"Simple," he says, "just subtract 274 from Tuesday.


  1. To Cliff: what a great line! I'm going to be laughing for days over that one!

  2. Termites: What a pain. I remember seeing them once at a national park in the Caribbean where they made HUGE mounds. Hope you (and the birds) aren't too inconvenienced by the upheaval.
