Weather: Now no rain till Wednesday. LOL

From now on I am going to use my personal weather rock in the back yard, if it is dull it is overcast, shiny it is sunny wet it is raining out. It may rain today, it may not, it may be sunny or maybe not. Hey I can be a weatherman too.

Last day of June today, Summer is going fast and it doesn’t seen like it even got here yet. The 4th is Tuesday so get those hot dogs, hamburgers and fireworks ready, I am predicting sunny skies LOL.

No matter what side of the AISLE you’re on, THIS is FUNNY!  

Judy Wallman, a professional genealogy researcher in southern California, was doing some personal work on her own family tree. She discovered that Senator Harry Reid’s great-great uncle, Remus Reid, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889 Both Judy and Harry Reid share this common ancestor.

The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows  in Montana territory:

On the back of the picture Judy obtained during her research is this inscription: ‘Remus Reid, horse thief, sent to Montana Territorial Prison 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the Montana Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in 1889.’

So Judy recently e-mailed Senator Harry Reid for information about their great-great uncle. 

Harry Reid:

Believe it or not, Harry Reid’s staff sent back the following biographical sketch for her genealogy research: 

“Remus Reid was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory . His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed.”

NOW THAT’s how it’s done, Folks!  That’s real POLITICAL SPIN



Weather: Rain for a week.

Looks like a few more rainy or drizzly days and then it may turn nice for the 4th. LOL at least that is what it says now. Well if it is raining for your cook outs that is why God created the Garage. Some of the best parties we had were during a rainy day drinking beer in the garage.

A golfer was involved in a terrible car crash and was rushed to the hospital. Just before he was put under, the surgeon popped in to see him. jo“I have some good news and some bad news,” says the surgeon. “The bad news is that I have to remove your right arm!”“Oh God no!” cries the man “My golfing is over!Please Doc, what’s the good news?” “The good news is, I have another one to replace it with, but it’s a woman’s arm and I’ll need your permission before I go ahead with the transplant.” “Go for it doc,” says the man, “as long as I can play golf again.” The operation went well and a year later the man was out on the golf course when he bumped into the surgeon. “Hi, how’s the new arm?” asks the surgeon. “Just great,” says the businessman. “I’m playing the best golf of my life. My new arm has a much finer touch and my putting has really improved.” “That’s great,” said the surgeon. “Not only that,” continued the golfer, “my handwriting has improved, I’ve learned how to sew my own clothes and I’ve even taken up painting landscapes in watercolours.”“That’s unbelievable!” said the surgeon, “I’m so glad to hear the transplant was such a great success. Are you having any side effects?”“Well, just two, said the golfer, “I have trouble parallel parking and every time I get an erection, I get a headache.”


Weather: Beautiful

70’s and Sunny today then back to rain for a few days, but our forecast usually does change, so I wouldn’t be surprised if we have more Sunny days this week.

Minature Golf

It was at a miniature golf course on a brutally hot day when I saw a father with 3 kids. “Who’s winning?” I asked cheerfully. “I am” said one “no, I am” said another. “No,” the father said “their mother is!”


Weather: Crappy

Mother Nature just could help herself, lots of rainy days here. Looks good for tomorrow though. ATV riding should be at it finest, no dust.


It’s A VERY BIG Number

If I give you $1 billion and you stand on a street corner handing out $1 per second, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, you would still not have handed out $1 billion after 31 years!
Now read on. This is too true to be funny.
The next time you hear a politician use the word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, think about whether you want the ‘politicians’ spending YOUR tax money.
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.
1. A billion seconds ago, it was 1959.
2. A billion minutes ago, Jesus was alive.
3. A billion hours ago, our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
4. A billion days ago, no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
5. A billion Dollars ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes, at the rate our present government is spending it.
We are charged:
· Stamp Duty
· Tobacco Tax
· Corporate Income Tax
· Income Tax
· Council Tax
· Unemployment Tax
· Fishing License Tax
· Petrol/Diesel Tax
· Inheritance Tax (tax on top of tax)
· Alcohol Tax
· G.S.T.
· Property Tax
· Purchase Property Tax
· Tax on Title Searches
· Tax on Building Inspections
· Tax on supplements
· Taxes on various food items
· Taxes on Dining out
· Tax on all utilities – Phone, hydro, water, waste disposal
· Service charge taxes
· Social Security Tax
· Vehicle License / Registration Tax
· Vehicle Sales Tax
· Workers Compensation Tax
· And now Carbon Tax
AND I’m sure you can think of more……
Not one of these taxes existed 60 years ago, and our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt.
We had the largest middle class in the world. A criminal’s life was uncomfortable… now they’re in the Senate and both sides of the House. What on earth happened?
I hope this goes around CANADA, the USA and beyond 1 billion times!


Weather: Rain on and off, gloomy skies, might just as well find a nice bar stool.

Not a lot going on, slow up here, not many people around yet. Come up and see the UP, ATV riding is great right now, little dust on the trails makes for a good ride.

Shout out to Captain Asshole, I gave Becker all my tip money like you told me last night. Hopefully you turned your paycheck over to Darlene.




Weather: another perfect 70 and overcast day.

What a fun night, had a few drinks with Mom and reminiscing about Pops on his birthday. Even though Pops passed away almost 3 years ago we bought him a new french door refrigerator and a blue tooth speaker for Mom’s iPad. A night cap with Uncle Dale and then I slept till noon. Perfect.

Thanks Wood Chuck for sending me something other than titties.

A delightful angelic little boy was waiting for his mother outside the ladies room of the gas station.
As he stood there, he was approached by a man who asked,
“Sonny, can you tell me where the Post Office is?”
The little boy replied, “Sure! Just go straight down this street 
two blocks and turn to your right.  It’s on the left.”
The man thanked the boy kindly, complimented him on how bright he was and said,
“I’m the new pastor in town. If you and your mommy come to church on Sunday,
I’ll show you how to get to Heaven.”
The little boy replied with a chuckle; “Are you kidding me?”
You can’t even find the Post Office.”




Weather: 70 and overcast, Perfect.

Had a nice fire last night, Got some yard work done so Becker is Happy.

I thought today was the first day of Summer but the internet says June 21 was. But today the days start getting shorter, in no time we will start seeing snow falling from the heavens. Sorry I love winter time in the UP.

I have been looking around for a joke because I am running short on what people send me. Except for my Buddy Wood Chuck, I can always count on opening my email and seeing 10+ emails full of titties.

So sorry no joke today, gotta go get this day started, Summer will be over before we know it.





Weather: Just fricken Beautiful.

Well yesterday was a bust, no bon fire or Bush Lights, Menards had 11% off so it was off to Rhinelander to pick up the rest of the flooring for the living room. Happy Wife, Happy Life they say.




Weather: 60’s to mid 70’s this week.

Cloudy and overcast, good day to cut grass and have a bon fire. I better go get some bush light and put it on ice, what good is a fire without cold beer?

A man goes to a $10 hooker and contracts crabs.

When he goes back to complain, the hooker laughs and says, “What do you expect for $10 — lobster?”


Weather: 60’s to mid 70’s this week.

Big shout out to Brother Mark and Friend Wally for helping get Mom’s dock in.

A little cooler this week but surprisingly the Lake temp was not bad. I would like it a little warmer before trying to take the grand kids swimming but it is getting there.

It was mealtime during an airline flight.
‘Would you like dinner?’, the flight attendant asked John, seated in front.
‘What are my choices?’ John asked.
‘Yes or no,’ she replied.

A flight attendant was stationed at the departure gate to check tickets. As a man approached, she extended her hand for the ticket and he opened his trench coat and flashed her.
Without missing a beat, she said, ‘Sir, I need to see your ticket, not your stub.’

A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store but she couldn’t find one big enough for her family. She asked a stock boy, ‘ Do these turkeys get any bigger?’
The stock boy replied, ‘No ma’am, they’re dead…’

The police officer got out of his car as the kid who was stopped for speeding rolled down his window. ‘I’ve been waiting for you all day,’ the officer said.
The kid replied, Yeah, well I got here as fast as I could.’
When the cop finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a ticket.

A truck driver was driving along on the freeway and noticed a sign that read: Low Bridge Ahead. Before he knows it, the bridge is right in front of him and his truck gets wedged under it. Cars are backed up for miles.
Finally a police car comes up. The cop gets out of his car and walks to the truck driver, puts his hands on his hips and says, ‘Got stuck, huh?’
The truck driver says, ‘No, I was delivering this bridge and I ran out of gas.’

A college teacher reminds her class of tomorrow’s final exam. ‘Now class, I won’t tolerate any excuses for you not being here tomorrow. I might consider a nuclear attack or a serious personal injury, illness, or a death in your immediate family, but that’s it, no other excuses whatsoever!’
A smart-ass student in the back of the room raised his hand and asked, ‘What would you say if tomorrow I said I was suffering from complete and utter sexual exhaustion?’
The entire class is reduced to laughter and snickering. When silence was restored, the teacher smiled knowingly at the student, shook her head and sweetly said, ‘Well, I guess you’d have to write the exam with your other hand.’
