30 more days until the snowmobile trails open up. Hip Hip Hooray. Halloween was a bust only 1 trick or treater. But I get to eat the left over candy. So maybe it was not a bust. We had to put Mom’s dog to sleep yesterday. Sad day but Bucko was old and he looked pretty miserable. Mom took it better than I did, but I guess when you are 84 years old you seen it all. It sucks when you see everyone dying off before you , she told me that Bucko was the 4th dog she had to put to sleep and this is the first time she didn’t have to go alone. Moms are tough.
A gloomy night for the Halloweeniers. Well gloomy day anyway. When I was a kid we went at night, there was snow on the ground and that was in Duluth Mn. I remember Mom going through our bags taking out the fruit because of rumors of razor blades and Dad taking all the snickers bars because they were “bad” for us.
Brett: What do mummies like listening to on Halloween?
Brent: I don’t know.
Brett: Wrap music!
I’ve been having back issues for a few weeks now. But I gave in to my stubbornness and went to a chiropractor. After one treatment it seems I am on the mend. Another appointment Thursday so hopefully I will be back in action for work this weekend.
A shout out to the Manhattan guys that stopped by the Lodge Sunday, sorry I didn’t get a chance to say thank you and goodbye. I was probably in the back room whining like a little sally.
As you know, people have been known to haveunexpected brushes with the authorities from time to time, often on the wayhome after a “social session” with family or friends. Well, this year, ithappened to me. I was out for the evening to a party and had more thanseveral margaritas coupled with a bottle of rather nice red wine. It washeld at a great Mexican restaurant. Although relaxed, I still had the commonsense to know I was slightly over the limit. That’s when I did somethingI’ve never done before…I took a taxi home. On the way home there was apolice roadblock, but since it was a taxi they waved it past and I arrivedhome safely without incident. These roadblocks can be anywhere and Irealized how lucky I was to have chosen to take a taxi. The realsurprise to me was I had never driven a taxi before. I don’t know whereI got it, and now that it’s in my garage I don’t know what to do with it.If you want to borrow it, give me a call.
I didn’t make it into Dutches last night, I’ve had a pain in my back for a few weeks now. Guess it is chiropractor time. Hoping I can make it through the night at the Lodge.

Bud and his wife, Lucy, moved back home to Texas from California. Lucy
had a wooden leg, and to insure it in California was $3,000.00 per year!!! When they arrived in Texas , they went to their Insurance Agent, Sam,
to see how much it would cost to insure the wooden leg. Sam looked it up on
his D’ vise and told the couple, “$39.00.”
Bud was shocked and asked why it was so cheap here in Texas to insure
it, because it had cost him $3,000.00 in California!!
Sam turned his computer screen toward the couple and said, “Whale, here
it is, direct from the Texas Fire Insurance Company, it says right here:
“Any wooden structure, with a sprinkler system over it, is $39.00.”
I always did find Texas logic far superior to most others!!!
What to do today? It has to be something to do with winter, or at least getting ready for it. Looks like we still have a few more 50 degree days coming our way. Maybe a bomb fire at the garage and some Busch Lights. I haven’t seen Jose in a while, maybe he will stop by too.
Shout out to Dave and Julie: Say hi to my future ex-wife please.
With the leave mostly gone from our yard I am wondering what the next Honey-do Becker is going to come up with. It will probably something stupid like getting all my business shit off the kitchen table. Not a whole lot going on up here, we are a few weeks away from Deer season. After that snowmobile season will be right around the corner. Hopefully we will get cold weather before the snow this year.
Doing leaves today. I been putting it off but the weather is staying nice so I am stuck doing it today. Fun Fun, at least I get to start a fire.
I heard a good one yesterday, I heard a rumor is going around that I shot my toes off. Although I tend to put my foot in my mouth, my toes are still intact. Gotta love small towns and how rumors get started. I guess sometimes it gets so boring up here we have to make things up to pass away the time.
Shout out to my future ex-wife: Hey Tanya
The wedding ceremony came to the point where the ministerasked if anyone had anything to say concerning the union of the bride and groom.The moment of utter silence was broken when a beautiful young woman carrying a child stood up.She starts walking slowly towards the minister.The congregation was aghast – you could almost hear a pin drop.The groom’s jaw dropped as he stared in disbelief at the approaching young woman and child.Chaos ensued.The bride threw the bouquet into the air and burst out crying.Then the groom’s mother fainted.The groomsmen started giving each other looks and wondering how to save the situation.The minister asked the woman, “Can you tell us, why you came forward?What do you have to say?”There was absolute silence in the church.The woman replied, “We can’t hear you in the back.And that illustrates what happens when people are considered guilty until proven innocent.
Temps are dropping back down after today. Chances of snow by the end of the month. Just when we start getting a hint of winter the sun pops back out. Don’t fret, it always snows in the UP.
The Washington Redskins finally drop offensive name:
Dan Snyder, owner of the NFL Redskins, has announced that the team is dropping “Washington” from the team name, and it will henceforth be simply known as “The Redskins.”
It was reported that Snyder finds the word “Washington” imparts a negative image of poor leadership, mismanagement,corruption, cheating, lying, and graft, and is not a fitting role model for young fans of football.
