I had a nice movie night with my Mom, Matilda and The Goonies were what was playing.  I get sick of watching Hallmark and Life Time with her, but I do LOL. Mom is old school and it is hard trying to find a movie to watch with her that she doesn’t get offended by.  No sex and no f-bombs, sad it is hard to find a movie without those two involved. There is a time and place for everything.

I’m Looking for a roof for the Commander, I have the soft top, but it is time to move up to the hard top.  The soft top just holds too much water.  Any suggestions on which one to buy?

There were some backwoods hillbillies living across the river from each other, who feuded constantly. John hated Clarence with a passion and never passed up a chance to throw rocks across the river at Clarence. This went on for years until one day the Corps of Engineers came to build a bridge across that river. John was elated; he told his wife that finally he was going to get the chance to cross over and whip Clarence. He left the house and returned in a matter of minutes. His wife asked what was wrong, didn’t he intend to go over the bridge and whip Clarence? He replied that he never had really seen Clarence up close and didn’t realize his size until he started over the bridge and saw the sign: “CLEARANCE 8 FT 3 IN”

Temps are falling

Weather: Cool and a chance of rain

Temps are down 10-15 degrees, bring it on.  We are getting closer to freezing over night.


3 Greeks And 3 Turks 3 Greeks and 3 Turks are traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the 3 Turks each buy tickets and watch as the 3 Greeks buy only a  single ticket. “How are 3 people going to travel on only one ticket?” asks one Turk. “Watch and you’ll see,” answers one Greek. They all board the train. The Turks take their respective seats but all three Greeks cram into a restroom and close the door behind them. Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the restroom door and says, ” Ticket, please.” The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on. The Turks saw this and agreed it was quite a clever idea. So after the conference, the Turks decide to copy the Greeks on the return trip and save some money (being clever with money, and all that). When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the Greeks don’t buy a ticket at all. “How are you going to travel without a ticket?” says one perplexed Turk. “Watch and you’ll see,” answers a Greek. When they board the train the 3 Turks cram into a restroom and the 3 Greeks cram into another one nearby. The train departs. Shortly afterward, one of  the Greeks leaves his restroom and walks over to the restroom where the Turks are hiding. He knocks on the  door and says, “Ticket, please.”

More colors coming out on the trees, we have a ways to go before they are in full bloom.  If you can make it up for the Veterans ride on September 27th we should have some good colors to look at.

Three men go on holiday abroad together. The tourist office informs them that there is only one hotel in town with vacancies. The lads go along there, only to be told by reception that there is just one available room left in the hotel. They are not keen, but as it is their only option, they take the room for one evening and share its only bed.
That night, they all enjoy a good night’s sleep. In the morning, the guy on the right side of the bed says,
“I dreamt I had the best wank last night.”
The guy on the left side says,
“That’s funny, I had the exact same dream!”.
The guy in the middle says, “I dreamt I was skiing.”

Mans best friend Bhaaaaaa

Weather: Rain today, low in the 30’s Thursday and Friday

Trail Conditions: Nice day for a ride, if you have a windshield and roof

Beautiful day today, I am all squared away with my TVs and cable boxes at the bar. Bring on them Packers and Lions games.

Keep September 27th on your calendar for the Veterans run for the Colors Ride.  We will be leaving out of Wakefield American Legion at 11am and going for a ride. Extra seats to take a Vet with would be highly appreciated.

A Welshman was washed up on a beach after a terrible shipwreck.
Only a sheep and a sheepdog were washed up with him. Looking around, he realized that they were stranded on a deserted island.
After being there a while, he got into the habit of taking his two animal companions to the beach every evening to watch the sun set.
One particular evening, the sky was a fiery red with beautiful cirrus clouds,
the breeze was warm and gentle – a perfect night for romance. As they sat there, the sheep started looking better and better to the lonely Welshman. Soon, he leaned over to the sheep and… put his arm around it. But the sheepdog, ever protective of the sheep, growled fiercely until the man took his arm from around the sheep. After that, the three of them continued to enjoy the sunsets together but there was no more cuddling.
A few weeks passed by and, lo and behold, there was another shipwreck. The only survivor was a beautiful young woman, the most beautiful woman the man had ever seen. She was in a pretty bad way when he rescued her and he slowly nursed her back to health. When the young maiden was well enough, he introduced her to their evening beach ritual. It was another beautiful evening… red sky, cirrus clouds, a warm and gentle breeze – perfect for a night of romance.
Pretty soon, the Welshman started to get ‘those feelings’ again.He fought the urges as long as he could but he finally gave in and, realizing he now had the
opportunity, leaned over to the young woman cautiously and whispered in
her ear,
‘Would you mind taking the dog for a walk?’

Yooper Vasectomy

Weather: No rain today, another great day

Trail Conditions: Nice day for a ride

Great day outside, I think I better get busy getting the fall chores done.  Don’t forget September 27th. The Veterans Ride out of Wakefield.  If you have an extra seat on a SxS and can give a Vet a ride please come join us.  Or if you just want to ride you can come and join us too.

After their 11th child, a U.P. couple decided that was enough, as they could not afford a larger bed.

So the husband went to his veterinarian and told him that he and his cousin didn’t want to have any more children.

The doctor told him that there was a procedure called a vasectomy that could fix the problem, but that it was expensive..

“A less costly alternative,” said the doctor, “is to go home, get a cherry bomb, light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to your ear and count to 10.”

The Yooper said to the doctor, “I may not be the smartest tool in the shed, but I don’t see how putting a cherry bomb in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me.”

“Trust me,” said the doctor.

So the man went home, lit a cherry bomb and put it in a beer can.

He held the can up to his ear and began to count!






At which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs and continued counting on his other hand.

Vikings are leading their division

Weather: Nice, 70’s during the day and cool at night still but rain tomorrow

Trail Conditions: Nice day for a ride

Beautiful outside, then rain.  Enjoy it while it is here, it won’t be long before that white shit starts flying.  Or maybe it won’t be soon enough, all depends on which side of the sled you wake up on I guess.

Colors are starting to turn, slowly but surely, lows in the high 30’s later this week ought to kick that in the ass.  October 13th is our 7th annual Grouse Tournament, come on up and have some fun shooting those little helpless birdies out of the sky.

September 27th is the Veterans Outdoor World USA, Veterans “Run for the Colors” ORV Ride. If you have a side by side come on up and help us give a vet a ride. See previous post from Skip for details.

Crap I didn’t say anything about the Vikings,

Do you know why Iowa does not have a professional football Team?

If they did, Minnesota would want one too!

Did you hear Jay Cutler called Aaron Rogers up on the phone Friday?

Cutler: Knock Knock

Rogers: Who’s there?

Cutler: Owen

Rogers: Owen Who?

Cutler: Owen One

I wonder what Rogers said to Cutler Sunday Night?

A Message from Skip

I first of all want to apologize to many of you that will receive this message more then once.  Over the last several months that we have been working on the Veterans ORV Ride I have used 3 different computers, many with the same e-mail addresses in my ‘group’ contacts, yet I have many e-mail addresses that are still on one of the 3 computers.  Again, please accept my apology.
Here’s an update on the Upper Peninsula Off Road Vehicle Trail Development Association, Western UP Trails Association, Veterans Outdoor World USA, Veterans “Run for the Colors” ORV Ride.
A couple weeks ago we had one of our main sponsors pull their sponsorship of the ride.  Thus we had to quickly make some changes.
While we had already received the necessary permits from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the Ottawa National Forest, we now have applied for a permit from the Michigan Department of Transportation.  We have also contacted the Michigan State Police Post in Wakefield about our proposed route.  While we have just completed the permit application process through MDOT, wit the EXCELLENT support we have received from MDOT, along with our elected officials, we are moving forward with our schedule and route.
The ride will be a 1-day ride, Saturday, Sept 27th, 2014.  The ride will get together between 10:00 am CT and 11:00 am CT, at the Wakefield American Legion.  We will leave the Wakefield American Legion Post, go on a fun and very scenic ride toward Watersmeet.  We will then return to the Wakefield American Legion for a picnic supper provided by the excellent people at the Legion.  The date of this goes with the Michigan No ORV Trail Sticker required weekend, legislation that was led by the UP ORV Trail Development Association and moved along in our State Legislature by State Senator Tom Casperson, and signed into law this past spring by Gov. Rick Snyder.  Thus you don’t need a Michigan ORV Trail Sticker to go on this ride.
With the great support of the Lake States Resource Alliance, the ride and dinner is at NO COST to any and all Veterans, no matter what branch of the service, time of service, disability or no disability.  The ride is FREE to everyone, and depending upon numbers of participants from non-veterans will determine the very low cost of the dinner for the non-veterans.  We want ANYONE, Veteran or non-veteran to show support of our Veterans by taking part in the ride.  We are looking for people with Side-by-Sides to help us by providing a seat for a Veteran (if needed).
What is also important right now is if you can please get the word out and help us get as many people as possible to participate in the ride, and if you know of a Veteran to please help us in getting them to go on the ride with us.  We’re anticipating a very colorful ride as this is at the time of our usual Fall Colors.  This ride takes us through the Ottawa National Forest, we’re going to go by secluded lakes, and over clear streams.  Make sure you bring a camera!  We’re going to end the fun day with a picnic supper and hear from some special guest speakers.  We’ve invited elected officials, representatives from the Michigan Veterans Administration, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, elected officials and other guest speakers.  Here’s a great chance to not only meet and be with others that served, but to show our appreciation for their service.  We’ve invited the media to attend.
You’ll hear from David Kohn, from Wisconsin and the Veterans Outdoor World.  David will talk about the many outdoor activities that VOW does and has planned.  From Fishing to Hunting events.  While this is our first Vet’s ORV Ride, planned by the Upper Peninsula ORV Trail Development Association, Western UP Trails Association and VOW, we plan on making this an annual event.  
I really want to thank so many that are helping us on this first Vet’s “Run for the Colors”  ORV Ride.  Our main financial supporter of this event this year is the Lake States Resource Alliance and the Wakefield American Legion.  I want everyone to know how fortunate we have been to work with the Michigan DNR, Michigan DOT, and the Ottawa National Forest through the permit process.  I also want to thank Greg Andrews and the Michigan Veterans Agency for all their help.  Special thanks to our UP ORV TDA club member, Western UP Trails Association, along with the Marquette County Convention and Visitors Bureau.  The MCCVB provided posters before we knew about the changes in the location of the ride and the dinner, and they printed those posters at no charge. 
A special thanks to all of you for your understanding in the changes as we hope you will still participate in the ride.
The biggest thanks to goes to those that this ride is all about…our Veterans!
If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me;  My home phone number is 906-884-9101, my cell phone is 906-236-1143.

Football anyone?

Weather: Nice, 70’s during the day and cool at night

Trail Conditions: Nice day for a ride

It was cool this morning.  Turned on the heat for a few minutes to take the chill off the house.  Awe..this getting to be the season. Hopefully only a few more grass cuttings and I can put the damn lawn mower away for the year. Next week shows highs in the 40’s.

The bar was packed at 7pm last night for the Michigan games but fans were sadly disappointed I bet.  Same went for the Packer game. Things didn’t go too well. Now the only hope is for the Lions on Monday night.



Jesus was worried about the drug epidemic plaguing the world. In an effort to solve this dilemma, he decided that a few apostles would return to earth and fetch a sample of each drug, so they could understand what these substances did.

Two days after the operation is implemented, the disciples begin to return. Jesus, waiting at the door, lets in each disciple: “Who is it?” “It’s Mark” Jesus opens the door. “What did you bring Mark?” “Marijuana from Colombia” “Very well son, come in.”

Another soft knock is heard. “Who is it?” “It’s Matthew” Jesus opens the door. “What did you bring Matthew?” “Cocaine from Bolivia” “Very well son, come in.”

At the next knock Jesus asks, “Who is it?” “It’s John” Jesus opens the door. “What did you bring John?” “Crack from New York” “Very well son, come in.”

Someone starts pounding on the door. “Who is it?” “It’s Judas” Jesus opens the door. “What did you bring Judas?” “FREEZE! THIS IS THE FBI!”

It won’t be long now

Weather: Nice, 70’s during the day and cool at night

Starting the middle of next week it is into the 30’s for a low.  Hey I think the season may be becoming upon us. It won’t be long now. (that’s what the little doggie said before the farmer chopped off his tail) We ought to start taking bets on when the first snow flakes will fall.

A boy goes to the drug store with his dad and sees the condom display.

Boy: “Dad, why do they do packs of one condom?”

Dad: “Those are for the high-schoolers for Friday nights.”

Boy: “So, why do they make packs of three?”

Dad: “For the college guys for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.”

Boy: “Then why do they make packs of 12?”

Dad: “Those are for married couples — you know, January, February, March.”
