Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

The Mother Of All Strom’s


Thursday I was wishing I had not posted that Wednesday Funny two weeks ago.

Because we are paying for it now, it snowed about 11 inch’s Thursday from about 9am to about 2pm and more coming..yuk

We keep telling our self's that this is our last winter here in the snow belt. If we can just make it till spring we got it madeSmile

We had a great winter last year while we were still in the stick and brick and we moved into the 5th wheel  last April and  we knew we had to live thru the winter before I could retire and said no problem we have that global warming thing going on and we will be fine.. Right!!!

By the time we leave here next fall for Amazon we will be on the way to be seasoned full timers.

Now for all of you with a phobia of snow stop reading here….








A look out our window




Our road out front.


Now see what most of you are missing???

Angela says the only thing she misses about the stick and brick is the doggy door. We both hate having to go out and walk the dogs..burr

And we have another storm coming tonight thru Monday and Tuesday…..YUCK when will it stop…

I made it for one more.


Saturday was my 61st birthday no big deal just glad to be here to have it..

This was my birthday cake I shared some with the neighbor  while playing with the Wii game.


Saturday morning Angela made me a special birthday breakfast and boy it sure was good.


Now we are going to concentrate on my retirement in September. We are in contact with Amazon and thinking we will work from October  to December then take that money and head for the desert for the winter.

We want to see the Q ( the wood stock for old people) at least once.

Wednesday Funny


Makes perfect sense to me!

Here’s one for the last of the romantics:




Ole & Lena lived by a lake in Nordern Minnesota. It vas early vinter and da lake had froze over.

Oleasked Lena if she vould valk across da frozen lake to da yeneral store to get him some beer. She asked him for some money but he told her, “Nah, yust put it on our tab.”

So Lena valked across, got the beer at da yeneral store, den valked back home across da lake. Ven she got home and gave Ole his beer, she asked him, “Ole, you alvays tell me not to run up da tab at dastore. Why didn’t you yust give me some money?”

Olereplied, “Vell, I didn’t vant to send you out dere vit some money ven I vasn’t sure how tick the ice vas yet.”

Kinda brings a tear to your eye....No ?

Wii Is That French?


We have had the coldest temps of the winter this week we are talking like o to 4 deg a few nights.

We are having 5th wheel fever real bad. So with my birthday coming next Saturday Angela decided to give me my birthday present early.

It is a Wii game and now we have something to do and get a little exercise at the same time.



Hey not a bad score for my first time playing. We play till late Friday night (10ish) having a few beers just like at the bowling alley.

When I got up Saturday my arm and shoulder were a little sore I must have gotten a little work out from the Wii or drinking beer..


Saturday was the grandkids birthday party they turn 11 on Feb 4th. They went to play laser tag with some friends.


I told them since they are getting older they need to take turns having birthdays like trading every other year she can have one year and he can have the next year.. they didn’t like my idea.


That’s it from the frozen Midwest . Time to get my bowling shoe’s on or maybe it will be tennis today.
