Weather: Temps cooling off tonight.

Trail conditions: Need cold and snow.

Well we survived the rain, now bring on the cold. Or at least cooler temps. Temps will cool down later tonight and we even have a chance for a little snow. Be careful out there, it is going to be icy if you are on a sled or just walking.

Reminder: People you can not ride M-28 with your sleds, cops were giving tickets yesterday to those riding the highway. Also loud pipes are going to get you a ticket. We have lost trails do to excessive noise from sleds, the DNR is serious about ticketing for noise.

My wife, Julie, had been after me for several weeks to varnish the wooden  seat on our toilet. Finally, I got around to doing it while Julie was out.  After finishing, I left to take care of another matter before she returned.

 
She came in and undressed to take a shower. Before getting in the shower, she sat on the toilet. As she tried to stand up, she realized that the not-quite-dry epoxy paint had glued her to the toilet seat.
 
About that time, I got home and realized her predicament. We both pushed and pulled without any success whatsoever.  Finally, in desperation, I undid the toilet seat bolts. Julie wrapped a sheet around herself and I drove her to the hospital emergency room.
 
The ER Doctor got her into a position where he could study how to free her. (Try to get a mental picture of this.) Julie tried to lighten the embarrassment of it all by saying, “Well, Doctor, I’ll bet you’ve never seen anything like this before.
 
The Doctor replied, “Actually, I’ve seen lots of them……I just never saw one mounted and framed.”
