    Was supposed to 75 today, then backed off to 73. Now backed off to 68 and it’s got 7 or 8 to go yet.

    I wish I could be that far off at work (without consequences) and still get a check.

    Cheap I like A&W too... Remember those drive-ins.

    63° with the sun out.

    Keith I will probably have to mow next week again. Seems to be growing after the rains.

    No luck on getting a deer for 12 Beers. Been pretty quiet on her side of the yard. Food and beer supplies are down again Guess I will have to replenish them. Can I claim her as dependent on my taxes? IJA

    The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because she had just gotten married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then about her new husband's occupation. "He's a funeral director," she answered.

    "Interesting," the newsman thought.

    He then asked her if she wouldn't mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years. After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she had first married a banker when she was in her 20's, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40's, and a preacher when in her 60's, and now - in her 80's - a funeral director.

    The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers.

    She smiled and explained,

    "I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go."

    Back in April my son was appraising a house and as he was leaving the structure, the last rung on the steps broke and he fell to the ground, and used his right hand to support himself (350 pounds +) on the way to the concrete walk. Thus he messed his wrist up real bad and had to see a specialist for surgery. During surgery the surgeon cut a nerve in his hand. For some reason the wrist would not heal and early this week they did a MRI on the hand and found a cyst growing in there. Now they have to go back in and get the cyst out. He has been out of work all this time on Workman's Comp. Right now his fingers can not feel anything and he cannot make a fist. For the past decade or more, he has been one of the top five producer for his company, which is part of Wells Fargo. He has a lot of options on his plate, both physical and legal.

    Meanwhile, back on the dead end road along the shores of Lake Norman, rain is in our forecast
    https://weather.com/weather/today/l/28037:4:US, with NE wind.

    Did y'all know that the Chinese do not have an alphabet ?

    FU, don't worry your little warped mind about whether or knot the Squaw likes or dislikes my Goatee. She like most gals with some age on them, has chin hair and I don't say nothing bout dat.

    Later Gators.
