Well, yesterday, we had our son's high school graduation party from 5-9 PM. Things went off without a hitch. We had good weather for 90% of the time turning cold cold at around 9 and raining like heck at around 10 PM. Those of us that were left, headed in the house and enjoyed the remaining evening laughing and hooting it up until about 2 AM or so.

Today, the weather is "comfortable." No sun but, no wind and very well, comfortable.

Diane, that mouse standing up looks to me like he's looking for a nice place to piddle....

Here's a "PIDDLE" boat!

Actually, I have a PADDLE boat just like this, and it is so fun on a hot day cause you can stick your feet in the water and splash around!

I'm WAITING FOR A HOT DAY! . . . and waiting, and waiting! Does 7 degrees above classify as HOT! smile

Reminds me of the time we were in Disney World in Florida. I just happened to look up. I was watching the sea gulls. One was flying fairly high but, not to high to see this. All of a sudden, one of them pooped. I calculated about where it was going to land and started laughing because it was aimed directly at a tourist head. Well, I guess I drew some attention with my cackling because others starting looking up too including the man that was going to get it. He saw it coming and just took of running! Man, did I ever laugh then, watching him trying to run as fast as he could out of the way! He made it too dangitall!

Okay, now THAT was just funny! Where do you come up with this stuff Jerry! Really!

Anyways, have you seen Horowitzian? He's probably UP and about, but I don't see him anywhere? He did say he likes CATS, so maybe he's in trouble? wink . . . or
