What a wonderful Labor Day weekend. The weather was great and on Sunday we had our last hay-ride for the year and its kind of sad to think the summer is gone, school has started and we know what is right around the corner. We had quite a load this time and went a different route which took us down by Granger and stopping by the river and it looked so calm, just ripples here and there. We all stretched our legs, walked around, jumped back in the wagon and off to son Martys house. We all got out, played with the dog as she loves to run after the ball, then it was time to pile in the wagon again and home we came and had our pot-luck supper at 8:00. It was a wonderful evening, the moon was so bright and the stars were too. Thanks Vickie and Dennis for the fun time and the nice cushioned seats you added for us. Of course we have to thank their maid who came down from Rochester to help with everything; she was excellent, always taking orders.

Face looks familiar
An old farmer was working in the field when he found a piece of mirror. He looked into it and said, Its my dad! He looked at the mirror again and again and put it under his pillow at bedtime. After he fell asleep, his curious wife reached under his pillow, pulled out the mirror and peered into it. Just as I thought, she said another woman, and an ugly one, too!

Washington is made up of equal parts protocol, Gerital and know-it-all.

A rich man is one who when his pockets are empty, his children fill his arms.

The first step in making a dream come true, is to wake up.

Just think how happy you would be if you lost everything you have right now - and then found it again.

A Tale of Tails
The cows use theirs in summertime to brush away the flies.
With pigs, theyre simply ornaments-small chunky twisty-ties.
An extra tuft of wool is all
they seem to be on lambs.
Young horses sport theirs in the wind-free-flowing silky strands.
The rooster struts with pride as he displays his feather frond.
Despite all these, my favorite tails are cattails by the pond!

To ensure great moisture
and texture in a chocolate cake, add a can of (well drained)
sauerkraut to your mix.
. . . . .
To keep cabbage odor to a
minimum when cooking,
put a celery rib or several lemon wedges in the pan.
. . . . .
If you cant sleep, because a crickets come calling,
heres a sure cure.
Put a wet washcloth in your kitchen or bathroom sink at night and youll find your noisy neighbor hiding
there in the morning.
