Wind and rain this morning so it was just a quick spin into Bayfield and back for us guys. A few Christmas photos along Bayfield’s Main street and that was it. Only a couple of squirrels in the yard today and no squirrels on the bird station feeder when we got up but, early this afternoon I heard a thump, looked up, and there was a squirrel on the feeder. Unfortunately, I did not see where it parachuted in from. Despite watching the feeder closely there were no more attempts for the rest of the day.
The rain finally quit by late morning and our temperatures began dropping. I bundled up for an afternoon walk around the pond but the icy wind kept us from going any farther.

We have a large LG smart TV but like a computer, we have never really utilized all its smartness. Kelly decided this afternoon to see what else it had to offer besides just the hum-drum TV channels and I was quite pleased with what she found on the YouTube channel. I can now watch all the seasons of ‘Road To Avonlea’ as well as Anne of Green Gables. Not only that but there is a ton of great music as well as a wealth of quality productions dealing with the Cosmos. Plus a million tons of other stuff. I’ve been familiar with YouTube on my computer for a long time but didn’t realize we could tap into all that groovy stuff on our large-screen TV with its big theatre sound. And it’s been right under our noses all the time. I’m hoping this newfound source of entertainment will play a part in helping me to make it through yet another long and miserably cold dark and dull winter.

Ellen’s Groove:)) I may have posted this before but for anyone interested, here is Ellen’s Story as told and narrated by Ellen’s dad, Hovak Alaverdyan. You will see Hovak playing an acoustic guitar beside Ellen’s crib when she was still barely able to stand up.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A husband was having great difficulty getting along with his wife – nothing but arguing and friction – so he decided to consult a marriage counselor. After they had talked for a while, the counselor said, “I suggest that you run five miles each day for a week. Then please call me back.” A week later the counselor received a call from the husband, “Well,” asked the counselor, “how are things going with you and your wife? “How should I know?” said the husband. “I’m thirty-five miles away.”

A woman was walking along the beach when she stumbled upon a genie’s lamp. She picked it up and rubbed it. Lo-and-behold a genie appeared. The amazed woman asked if she got three wishes. The Genie said, “Nope. Due to inflation, constant downsizing, low wages in third-world countries, and fierce global competition, I can only grant you one wish. So, what’ll it be?” The woman didn’t hesitate. She said, “I want peace in the Middle East. See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting with each other.” The Genie looked at the map and exclaimed, “Gadzooks, lady! These countries have been at war for thousands of years. I’m good, but not THAT good! I don’t think it can be done. Make another wish.” The woman thought for a minute. She said, “Well, I’ve been trying to find the right husband. You know, one that’s considerate and fun likes to cook and helps with the housecleaning, has a great sense of humor and gets along with my family, doesn’t watch sports all the time, and is faithful. That’s what I wish for. A good mate.” The Genie let out a long sigh and said, “Let me see that map again.”
