I think I have Plumber’s Crack

Weather: No rain and 65 for a high again

Trail Conditions: Good riding day

I had a productive day, I’ve been re-plumbing the house and I made a lot of progress yesterday.  I put in pex tubing and took out all the old pipe, the only thing left to do is hook up the washing machine.  Oh and check the leak I had under the sink last night.

Today I think may be grass cutting day, Becker works at the bar today so I gotta get it done here when I have time.  Good think the riding lawn mower has a drink holder.


“A man and a woman were having drinks when they got into an argument about who enjoyed sex more. The man said, “Men obviously enjoy sex more than women. Why do you think we’re so obsessed with getting laid?” “That doesn’t prove anything,” the woman countered. “Think about this: when your ear itches and you stick your little finger in it, wiggle it around, and then pull it out, which feels better—your ear or your finger?” 

Cool and Sunny in Bergland

Weather: No rain and 65 for a high

Trail Conditions: Good riding day

Now this is UP weather, high 60′s and sunny, it does not get any better than that. You can have warm sunny Florida, give me 60 and sunshine anytime. You don’t sweat, bugs are gone and your beer don’t get warm fast. I guess that is why they call it God’s country.



I was reading an article last night about fathers and sons,
and memories came flooding back of the time I took my son out for his first drink.
Off we went to our local bar, which is only two blocks from the house.
I got him a Miller Genuine. He didn’t like it – so I drank it.
Then I got him an Old Style, he didn’t like it either, so I drank it.
It was the same with the Coors and the Bud and the Leinies.
By the time we got down to the Irish whiskey,
I could hardly push the stroller back home.

Look out for the Bee’s Nest

Weather: Up to 84 today YUK

Trail Conditions: It was fun yesterday

Becker and I went for a little ride yesterday.  We didn’t get to far, I guess we were too busy visiting with friends along the way. We stopped by to check out the Car Shack, hey Bob everything looks OK except for the Bee or Wasps nest behind the shack.  We didn’t stick around long to see what the hell they were, Becker went up close to the wall in back and here they came so we got out of there quick.  I think I made Dick laugh a little.

Stormed pretty good last night, put that with the 80 degrees we are supposed to have and it should turn out to be a pretty humid day.


Maria had just got married, and being a traditional Italian, she was still a virgin.
On her wedding night, she stayed at her mother’s house, and was very nervous.
Her mother reassured her:
“Don’t worry Maria, Tony’s a good man. Go upstairs and he’ll take care
of you. Meanwhile, I’ll be making pasta.”
So, up she went. When she got upstairs, Tony took off his shirt and exposed his hairy chest.
Maria ran downstairs to her mother and says, “Mama, Mama, Tony’s got a big hairy chest.”
“Don’t worry, Maria,” says the mother, “All good men have hairy
chests. Go upstairs. He’ll take good care of you.”
So, up she went again. When she got up in the bedroom, Tony took off
his pants exposing his hairy legs.
Again, Maria ran downstairs to her mother, “Mama, Mama, Tony took off
his pants and he’s got hairy legs!”
“Don’t worry! All good men have hairy legs. Tony’s a good man. Go
upstairs and he’ll take good care of you.”
So, up she went again. When she got there, Tony took off his socks and
on his left foot he was missing three toes.
When Maria saw this, she ran downstairs. “Mama, Mama, Tony’s got a foot and a half!”
Her Mama said, “Stay here and stir the pasta.”

GB Packers host Cheerleading tryouts

Weather: 80′s today, 60 on Tuesday

Trail Conditions: Get out and ride

Blue skies this morning, just gorgeous outside. Not much went on yesterday, I worked till 7pm then Kristie came in and took over.  All I did was piss and moan all day, maybe I better start drinking Miller Lite, I think Bush Light makes me crabby the next day. Becker came home yesterday, she went to stay by her daughter’s in Iron Mountain for a week or so.

It is time to get ready for the Grouse Tournament I guess, 2nd Saturday in October. Let me know if you are interested.

Not too much else going on, I did hear the Packers have opened up tryouts for cheer leaders………



A nice day for a trail ride from Bergland

Weather: Forecast looks a lot better, cloudy and cool

Trail Conditions: Dust on the grade

What a great ride with some great people. I rode with 2 couples from the east shore yesterday, and we had a great time.  The P trail going out of Bergland is rough and slow but very scenic. Mud holes are forming so I am not sure how long it is going to be before it becomes damn near impassable again. The USFS does have a plan to move the bottom part of that trail west to a drier path. Hopefully that will get done next year. But for now it is a fun trail. After a nice lunch in Rockland at Henrys we had some trouble finding our way around Greenland, the trail is not marked very well and locals were not that helpful, they didn’t seem to know where the trail actually was. I guess they know where to go so they don’t pay attention to where the markings are. After getting lost a bit in Greenland, Mass City and Rousseau we finally found our way back down to Trout Creek.  The SB trail was graded all the way back to Bergland.  They leveled off a lot of bumps but now it needs riders to pack it down.

Thanks for a great time guys, I promise to study the maps and not get us lost the next time. LOL I think we put on about 120 miles, some of that was going in circles though.

Up for an ATV ride?

Weather: 60% chance it will not rain

Trail Conditions: I’ll let you know tomorrow

Good chance on going for a ride today with some folks from the lake. Hopefully the rain does not scare them off. Easy for me to say, I have a roof and windshield LOL.

When I was looking online for a joke, the web page I went to has a category for Robin Williams jokes.  What is wrong with people?  Facebook has helped spread the word about the Ice Bucket Challenge, but then you have the dumb asses that keep sharing the Robin Williams crap. I guess the answer is to unfriend the idiots that keep sharing hurtful crap.

An old lady gets caught shoplifting. On court day the lady and her husband who goes with her stands before the judge and he says to her, “Why did you shoplift?” And she says “I was hungry.” The judge says “What did you take?” She replys, “A can of peaches.” So the judge trying to figure out how to punish her says, “How many peaches where in the can?” The lady says “6″ so the judge says ok then 1 day per peach in jail that will be 6 days time served. The judge says would anyone like to say anything and her husband says your honor, “She stole a can of peas too” 

The ice bucket challenge

Weather: Rain for half a week now

Trail Conditions: No Dust, not one bit

I was nominated for the ALS ice bucket challenge earlier in the week by Mike Peters and Brian Parpart. Thanks guys I thought you were my friends LOL. Sorry to say but Becker has been gone for a week or so helping out her daughter and I have been busy with my mom.  I have been pre-occupied with a few things so I was not able to do it at this time. So ………….. I donated $100 to ALS for now.  Besides who wants to see my fat ass standing there with hard nipples and a whole lot of shrinkage going on?

Rain and wolves in Bergland

Weather: Rain for a week

Trail Conditions: No Dust, not one bit

Our weather sure did a 180.  From sunny everyday to rainy everyday. Doesn’t bother me though, I would rather be here in the rain than down in Florida in the sun. Only bad part is it is watering the mosquitos and them little bastards are starting to come out again.  Bees are also appearing out of no where too.

I seen a wolf yesterday right up from the house on M28, that’s the second one I’ve seen this year. I tried slowing down to get a pic but it ran away.

An old man walked into the confessional at the cathedral and said to the priest, “Father, I’m 80 years old, married, have four kids and 11 grandchildren. Last night I had an affair, and I made love to two 18 year old girls. Both of them. Twice.” 

The priest replied, “Well, my son, when was the last time you were in confession?” 

“Never Father, I’m Jewish.” 

The priest paused, and then asked, “So then, why are you telling me?” 

“Hey, I’m telling everybody.” 

Miller takes lunch Money

Weather: Another fricken gentle rain coming down

Trail Conditions: No Dust

Loss for words again here, not much going on, except for Miller sneaking into town stealing kids lunch money that is.  You’d have to know Miller as many of you do.

House hunting for Mom was a bust, I thought we were going to put a deal together but it just didn’t happen.  Gonna suck for sure when she heads back to Indiana.  For now I am going to head to Duluth so she can spend some time with brother Mark.

There was a little old lady standing at a corner. She had both hands holding her hat on while the wind blew her dress up around her waist. 

A dignified southern gentleman came up and said, “Ma’am, you should be ashamed of yourself, letting your skirt blow around, being indecent, while both hands hold your hat.” 

She said, “Look mister, everything down there is seventy years old; this hat is brand new!” 

Nice gentle rain falling in Bergland

Weather: A gentle rain coming down

Trail Conditions: No Dust

It is a great day to go for a ride, especially in a SxS.  Got a roof and a windshield? It would be great riding with no dust and near 70 temps for the next few days.  Besides the rain keeps us all green up here.

It’s off to Minnesota for Mom for a few days or weeks to visit brother Mark. It will be good for her to get away and forget about the house hunting we have been doing.  Unfortunately things didn’t fall into place and she’ll be going back to Indiana for the winter.

Two elderly ladies are sitting on the front porch, doing nothing. 

One lady turns and asks, “Do you still get horny?” 

The other replies, “Oh sure I do.” 

The first old lady asks, “What do you do about it?” 

The second old lady replies, “I suck a lifesaver.” 

After a few moments, the first old lady asks, “Who drives you to the beach?”
