are hard to break. Like getting up early, even on Sunday. It's about 5:45 here and I'm working on my second cup of something or other. (Can't use the Coughfy word er else I'll spark a positively negative response from my buddy Les).

At any rate, I'd just like to say Good morning to everyone that stops by. And to wish y'all a good day, except for Ron/Pa. He doesn't want anyone telling him what kind of day to have.

Now, I'm not one to complain but this feud between Clod and Burrhead is getting a mite rediculous. This is supposed to be a meeting place for the family and I don't like it when you guys bring your personal problems home with ya.
So, I suggest you either exchange email addresses and conduct your quarrel in private or arrange a shoot-out down at the OK tool shed.

I spend a good bit of time out burning some high priced gasoline yesterday. But it was time and money well spent. The autumn leaves are giving off a specticular glow here in northeastern Maryland. Nancy and I went to Oxford, Pa. just across the line and stopped at a flea market and a few yard sales along the way. Before we returned home we paid a visit to two of our children and we got to see the light of our lives, the grand-children. Now, if anyone would like to know about our grand-children, please ask.

It's supposed to be cooler here today about 56 degrees. But, I think we will bundle warmly and take a hike along a nature trail down by the river. I just hope we don't run into to many bicyclers. It's sometimes hard for us old folk to get out of their way on narrow trails.

Well, that's about all I have to say. Again, have a good day.......gfp

And a good Morning to you as Alias. Would have replied earlier but the wife was up first and on the computer. As for the coffee if it ain't too late go ahead and drink my share. I don't care for it so I that leaves that much more for you all that do.[hope that don't sound negative] Thanks for the good wishes. The fued you mentioned is not getting it done got.(nuff said from here bout that) Did some driving yesterday and probably some more today. In spite of gas prices it still is some of the cheapest "recreation"( for lack of a better word) Forgive me if I don't ask about you Grandkids.(awful busy with my own) but go ahead and tell us anyway. I am fortunate when I want to go for a walk between My neighbor and brother and I enough walking and hunting without them pesky bikes. Well I see you done got the real pleasures of life figured out, it is good to see you(anyone else as well) enjoying them. Good day to all. (Ron/Pa included)

Yes, the rooster don't know from Sunday, he crows just the same.

I have a yucky house to clean and laundry facing me today.

As for C and BH, they'll sort it out. As I said yesterday, these things are inevitable. I once had a two-day battle with (someone) over crop circles. It never seems ridiculous when you're defending yourself, but go back and read it a month later. That's when you blush and feel bad.

Sounds like it was a very good day to be Alias yesterday.8^) The trees are just past peak here in NWMO but are still better than some bad years.

I find it hard to believe grandchildren can be more precious than your own kids, but I'm certainly hoping to find out for myself in 20 years or so. Hope I live to see it. Price you pay for having kids late in life.

I enjoy Clods and Burrheads posting quite a bit, just not when they reply to each other. I haven't read the latest row yet, but can imagine. How can two good people not be able to come to some agreement?

Brother-in-law & sister-in-law are here for the weekend. Enjoying their company.

Wish everyone a beautiful day, even RonPA whos weekend grump is due to end soon.

Mojo, grands are not more precious, just that by the time we have them, we have hopefully gotten our priorities in order and realize that making a living, though important, is way, way hehind our family members.(Longest sentence in my life) We realize that we are mortal and maybe by doting on our grandchiren, we can make it up to our children for neglecting them by trying to buy them the things we thought they needed. Stuff like clothes, food, and a good education. What they needed most was us. The other is important, but our time would have served them better. I am speaking for me, but I suspect that there are others that will agree. God gives us a second chance.

I enjoy reading Clod and Burrhead. I believe they are both good guys. They both have a lot of wisdom and will help folks that need some of their knowledge. Burrhead seems to detect and detest pompousness in those that are, and what is amazing is that Clod is not. He is a humble guy not unlike Burrhead. Their greatest bone of contention seems to be their disagreement over President Bush. Maybe they both are right. I have alreadey voted for him; I hope he doesn't make me regret it. (Yes Les, I early voted; I confess my sin.) I think Burr and Clod can work out their differences and probably will.

Now for coffee, I like it; it just doesn't like me. Coffee and bacon are two of my favorite morning aromas. I wish I could dring it and wish that it tasted as good as it smells.

I love the fall colors, Alias. I think my wife hates them because I am compeled to point out every lovely tree and bush that we see.(Harmony ain't easy.) BTW, that's a title of a long, short story written by Dr. Ferrol Sams of Georgia. It is one of three stories in his book, "Epiphany". Everyone on this board that enjoys reading would love this book. As Justin Wilson of Loisianer usta say, I garuntee it.

I really enjoy this board. It has some really great people on board. Those of us that lurk enjoy the shenanigans and sharing of joy and sorrows. New-Gen said some things that probably cover most of us. We tell things on here that we don't tell some of our nearby neighbors. I wish I could tell Cindi what to do. The wisdom of Solomon is needed there and alas, she will not go there. Y'all have a nice day.

Clod vs Burrhead posts interfering with Burrheads political posts, not as much fun for me. RN.

Good morning Alias. It ain't the old habits that get you up, it's the old bladder... ;o)

I bet the leaves are something up there. Best display we've had down here in years, and I know it prettier up there.

I never did ask, where are you located up there? When I was a kid, me Dad used to take us up to the Conowingo dam area every fall to look at the leaves. His Dad was barracks commander at the state police barracks in Northeast.

Alias    Posted 10-24-2004 at 03:52:45       [Reply]  [No Email]
Stretch, I'm only about 6 or so miles on the southwest side side of the dam near US Route 1.
The nature trail I mentioned is located along the Susquehanna and starts down by the mouth of Deer Creek and runs upstream toward the dam. A little further downstream is the old water mill. If you have been to conowingo, you have, most likely been to the mill.

Of course, you're right about the fall colors. They are so vibrant it's as though the Angels dressed the trees for the season. It's a shame they can't hang around a little longer but, alas, beauty fades.

I've had a couple of days when the Crappy have been biting but according to the DNR pamplet, they shouldn't be eaten except in very small quantity and only once or twice a month, if caught in the upper Chesapeake. So, I'm doing the old catch and release thing.

I'll be getting up with you later, .....George
