Pull up a chair, snap your fingers, "double latte" and lets hear whats on your mind. Gripes, comments, compliments, complaints, ideas? Lets get them out in the open and see if we can relate, have some fun, come to conclusions maybe, who knows.

Splinter, I think we might just pull off the "upset" this year.

CGRO, thanks, been looking forward to this trip for months!

BGJAM, are there a lot of other boats out when you're on the water now?

golfer - you're going to the Ryder Cup?! That's a bucket list item for me! Should be interesting since the US is such an underdog this time.

Road trip in the rain today. BIL involved in auto accident last week, has no vehicle and needs to go to body shop (50 miles away)to sign papers. Not sure why he did not select a shop close to his home.

Good morning Handi and everybuddy else coming in for Monday. Had a fabulous weekend, went to a trail across town with MrsCG and two friends, rode 11.5 miles, and grilled after in the parking lot. This trail is MrsCG's new favorite trail. Too bad it is a 50 minute drive. Sun I rode the local trail two fast laps before football. Packers win! They started out terrible, but picked it up for a 31-24 win!

sout, glad to hear you are feeling better. That sounds like a lot of rain.

Splinter, ya gotta do what ya gotta do. MrsCG says she isn't turning on the furnace until Oct. I will not hold her to it. She did turn on her electric heater in her office one day last week.

Handi, bummer about the Riders.

Dad was in the hospital overnight Fri. He was diagnosed with pheumonia, and plorisy. They had planned on going in a removing the liquid, but changed their minds Sat am. He was released and at home, and feeling better.

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!

Seven inches of rain over the last two days. We needed it but nothing getting done outside. Yard is way too muddy.

Good morning everybuddy, welcome to Friday. Got the groceries with all sorts of coupons last night, save 22%, and shouldn't have to go back for a while, cept for the dairy and produce stuffs. Sunday is the boat cruise my mom won at the Diabetes GALA auction. It is out of Treasure Island Casino. 10 of us family members will be going. And, we should be able to get home in time for the Packer Jets game.

wmsb, well, that sounds good.

Got lucky and only need to replace only the front door and not the whole frame too. Supposed to rain most of the weekend so I hope it doesn't rain too hard.

Good morning Handi, and everybuddy else coming in for what us working people call hump day. Raining this am, so reset the alarm, and drove to the bus. Rain was coming down on the edge of doable biking for me, but it was too late, and there was a bit of wind... Thinking the off road group ride for tonite will be cancelled. Might get to go to Erik's annual Warehouse sale and get some bike stuffs on sale.

sout, sounds like a good call, to not talk to the reporter.

The paper that I subscribe to for Sunday only delivery, is pushing electronic versions, and send me emails now that they have given it to me. I have yet to look at it.

Handi, good to hear it could be worse. Hopefully it will get better. We should be getting some Fall temps for a few days now.

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!

covered garden last night, at the moment it's 2C and our high is only going to be 10 and it isn't going to get any better any time soon --- FALL IS HERE

sou -- sore, but it could be worse, if the door would stop hitting me on the way out and my cats would learn to sleep on my right side things would be better --- but I can talk to both all day and neither listen to well -- as long as I don't lift my elbow to high, it's livable

Good Morning,

Thanks, CG. A sports reporter from one of the TV stations tried to contact me, but I do not want this to become a news story. Nothing good would come of it.

Pardon Day, I could use that.

Our newspaper is delivered by an adult who drives his car. Considering going digital.

Handi, how are you feeling?

Coffee to go.
