Dream Dream Dream about Gelinda the beer girl at Hilda's Gasthouse

She liked Jim better because he promised her he whoud bring her to the US but he liked Ficken the ganza nacht, the Kleine Soldad would hold hands with her and never asked her to do anything wrong other than making out some what, but I never promised I would take her to the states.  That's where Dream Dream Dream comes in.  If anything put me back at Merrill, that did.

Good afternoon Troopers ... ..

Afternoon High Temps beginning to hit the low 90's now!!  Low temps in the mid to upper 60's.

Harry:  still getting that coffee at Target now and then.

Broke out the fishing gear yesterday and walked down to the river at the campground. Didn't catch any fish, but did lose a new lure in the trees. Leopard  Frog pattern, Jitterbug , top water lure.  Oh well, such is life. A small Gator did cruise by while I was there.

Hope all are doing well, enjoy the day, take care.
