Weather: Rainy.

Getting close to the middle of September, book your dates now. I am taking reservations for the House on the Lake. The calendar is below the little house. I might be getting another house in town too. I should know something soon.

Farmers almanac is calling for a bad winter. But that means a good winter if you own a sled. I don’t put a lot of faith in that, but who knows, I don’t put a lot of faith in the weather people either.


A Navy man and an Army man are driving opposite directions on a curvy mountain road. The army man hits a patch of sand, swerves, and nails the Navy man’s truck. They both exit their cars with no injuries, but their vehicles are ruined.

Now, the rivalry between Army and Navy is well known, so needless to say a heated argument followed. Then suddenly the Navy man changed heart and said, “Hold on, this is dumb. It was an accident. Let’s put this rivalry behind us.”

The Army man agreed this was a good idea. So the Navy man offered, “Why don’t we celebrate our new friendship over a fifth of vodka? I have a bottle in the truck.”

The Army man thought this was an excellent idea. So the Navy man, being a gentleman, offered the Army man the first drink, and told the Army man to drink as much as he wanted. Soon half the bottle was gone and he offered the bottle back to the Navy man who said, “Thanks, but I’ll wait till after the cops get here!”
