Black Friday.

Hopefully I won’t be considered a racist by calling today Black Friday. Or saying I want a White Christmas LOL. I would rather be in the UP where bullshit like that does not matter to people like it does in the rest of the country.

Warmer temps today and tomorrow, with a chance of rain possible. The rain will not hurt, in fact in would probably help out on the Lake. Below Freezing temps for highs from Sunday on.

A young man and his date were parked on a back road some distance from town. They were about to have sex when the girl stopped. “I really should have mentioned this earlier, but I’m actually a hooker and I charge $20 for sex.” The man reluctantly paid her, and they did their thing. After a cigarette, the man just sat in the driver’s seat looking out the window. “Why aren’t we going anywhere?” asked the girl. “Well, I should have mentioned this before, but I’m actually a taxi driver, and the fare back to town is $25…”

Happy Thanksgiving Eve.

Opps, yesterday’s post. I forgot to hit publish. Happy Thanks Giving everyone.

Twas the Night before Turkey Day,

And all thru the UP,

Snowflakes were falling,

And them temps were a freezing.

If I was talented or maybe had more Tequila maybe I could finish the poem.  My brothers are in town so there is a chance of the tequila coming out later. With the exception of Friday and Saturday temps remain below freezing, good start for November, keep them cold temps coming Mother Nature.

A guy stuck his head into a barbershop and asked, “How long before I can get a haircut?” The barber looked around the shop full of customers and said, “About 2 hours.” The guy left. A few days later, the same guy stuck his head in the door and asked, “How long before I can get a haircut?” The barber looked around at the shop and said, “About 3 hours.” The guy left. A week later, the same guy stuck his head in the shop and asked, “How long before I can get a haircut?” The barber looked around the shop and said, “About an hour and a half.” The guy left. The barber turned to his friend and said, “Hey, Bob, do me a favor, follow him and see where he goes. He keeps asking how long he has to wait for a haircut, but he never comes back.” A little while later, Bob returned to the shop, laughing hysterically. The barber asked, “So, where does he go when he leaves?” Bob looked up, wiped the tears from his eyes and said, “Your house!”


Snow and Cold.

Temps have continued to stay down but looks like a little bit of a warm up over the weekend. Nothing major, we will be fine, even if we do get a little bit of rain. The Lake is froze but the ice is only thick enough for Shawn Montie or Mark Hanson to try. (That is by no means a dare guys)

A young man was showing off his new sports car to his girlfriend. She was thrilled at the speed. “If I do 200mph, will you take off your clothes?” he asked. “Yes!” said his adventurous girlfriend. And as he gets up to 200, she peeled off all her clothes. Unable to keep his eyes on the road, the car skidded onto some gravel and flipped over. The naked girl was thrown clear, but he was jammed beneath the steering wheel. “Go and get help!” he cried. “But I can’t. I’m naked and my clothes are gone!” “Take my shoe”, he said, “and cover yourself.” Holding the shoe over her pubes, the girl ran down the road and found a service station. Still holding the shoe between her legs, she pleaded to the service station proprietor, “Please help me! My boyfriend’s stuck!” The proprietor looked at the shoe and said, “There’s nothing I can do…he’s in too far.”

Lake Gogebic Froze over.

I heard reports that the south end of the Lake is froze over. The Bay up in Bergland has been frozen since early last week. Keep the cold here Mother Nature, we need it.

Benefit for Charlie at Gogebic Lodge today. Misty and I are bartending and donating all our tips to Charlie. So dig deep because it is going to help Charlie.

An older couple, who were both widowed, had been going out with each other for a long time. Urged on by their friends, they decided it was finally time to get married. Before the wedding, they went out to dinner and had a long conversation regarding how their marriage might work. They discussed finances, living arrangements, and so on. Finally, the old gentleman decided it was time to broach the subject of their physical relationship. “How do you feel about sex?” he asked, rather tentatively. “I would like it infrequently “, she replied. The old gentleman sat quietly for a moment, adjusted his glasses, then leaned over towards her and whispered, “Is that one word or two?


Yep, Lake Effect Snow going on right now. Cool it with the Snow Mother Nature, we want sub zero temps. That will make me popular with the Locals. Looks like we only got a few inches, but there is nothing like watching those half dollar sized flakes fall from the sky.

A father and his 6-year-old son are walking down the street, and they come across two dogs having sex. The boy is shocked by what he sees and asks his father “Daddy, what are they doing?” The father, not wanting to lie to his son, says “they’re just making a puppy.” “OK” says the son, and the father is relieved that he doesn’t probe further. The next day, the son bursts into his parents’ room and sees them having sex. The father jumps up and quickly covers himself. Knowing he’s in for an interesting talk, walks downstairs with him and they sit at the dining room table. His son asks him “Daddy, what were you and mommy doing?” Again, wanting to be honest with his son, he says “me and mommy were making a baby.” His son pauses for a moment, thinking, and then replies “flip mommy over, I want a puppy!”

Cold enough?

Temps are staying down for now but we do need them much lower for a Dec. 1st start of the season. We need a lot more cold first and only then major snow. But hey it is early and I have seen good seasons start off a lot worse than what we have right now. Gogebic Area Grooming has built another groomer barn down in Marenisco to house the groomer taking care of the southern part of our trail system. The newer Groomer Drivers we have are a lot more experienced now and I think you will continue to see improvements over our trail system for years to come now. I think it is safe to say “Gogebic Area Grooming is back.” All we need now is for Mother Nature to cooperate.

Three Green Bay Fans were bemoaning the sorry state of their football team. “I blame the general manager,” said the first fan. “If he signed better players, we’d be a great team.” “I blame the players,” said the 
second fan. “If they made more of 
an effort, we’d score some points.” “I blame my parents,” said the third. “If I’d been born in Chicago, 
I’d be supporting a decent team.”

Sunshine today.

The sun is out, first time in a while. Hopefully it will melt some of the snow down so the cold weather can get to the ground. The snow is great and I know all the snowmobilers love to see it, but we need cold to freeze in the trails. We are below freezing for highs most of the time so it looks like a good start. Just hold off a bit on more snow for a while Mother Nature. (at least till my plow truck is out of the shop)

After a recent football game, the team went into the locker room to get out of their uniforms and to shower. In the showers, Bubba noticed that Duke has a cork shoved up his butt-hole. So, Bubba asked, “Duke, why in the world do you have a cork up your butt?” Duke answered, “Last night when I was cleaning my antique brass lamps, a genie came out of one of them. The genie said that I had one wish. I was really startled and I replied, “No shit!”

Lakes are starting to freeze.

Sunday Lake was froze over when I was in Ironwood yesterday. The bay on Lake Gogebic is froze too. Tis getting to be the season I think. Now we need the snow to hold off and turn down the temps. Every year I have been up here it seems we struggle with a different obstacle. We’ll see what this year brings but so far, so good. Get you preventive maintenance done on them sleds, it soon will be SNOW TIME.

A Well Run Business

Me:                   I was doing an overnight at a hotel away from home & I took my computer down to the bar to do some work. I sat down and asked the bartender, ‘What’s the wifi   password?’

Bartender:       ‘You need to buy a drink first.’

Me:                   ‘Okay, I’ll have a beer.’

Bartender:        ‘We have Guinness on tap.’

Me:                   ‘Sure. How much is that?’

Bartender:        ‘$8.00.’

Me:                   ‘Here you are. OK now, what’s the wifi password?’

Bartender:      ‘ “youneedtobuyadrinkfirst”; No spaces and all lowercase.’

A Snowy Monday

Snow continues to fall in the UP.  Another inch or so yesterday and it looks like we got a few more today with snow in the forecast tomorrow. Turn up the freezer for a while Mother Nature and hold off on the snow for a bit. Sure wish my plow truck would get done.

A lady walks into a fancy jewelry store. She browses around, spots a beautiful diamond bracelet and walks over to inspect it. As she bends over to look more closely she inadvertently breaks wind. Very embarrassed, she looks around nervously to see if anyone has noticed her little accident and prays that a sales person doesn’t pop up right now. As she turns around, her worst nightmare materializes in the form of a salesman standing right behind her. Cool as a cucumber and displaying complete professionalism, the salesman greets the lady with, “Good day, Madam How may we help you today?” Very uncomfortably, but hoping that the salesman may not have been there at the time of her little “accident!” she asks, “Sir, what is the price of this lovely bracelet?”  He answers, “Madam, if you farted just looking at it, you’re going to shit when I tell you the price.”

Veteran’s Day

Thank you to all the Veteran’s and active service men and women who will be Veterans. I can’t help but wonder how you continue to serve our country when it seems we are becoming more corrupt and screwed up with each passing day. I am sure there are good people in politics but it sure looks like we have more “bad apples” than “good apples”. God help us all. PLEASE.
