    The View From The Mountain Top.

    Yesterday I had some work to do on some property that my father inlaw owened on the other side of the mountain. When I got done I decided to take the road over the mountain on my return. At the very tip top of the mountain is a lookout where you can see for mile's of the valley...

    Jokes Give It Away

    I know I am not nearly as funny as I think I am so learning that my jokes now seem dated and give away my age. I know I am getting older because my not so silly jokes give me away!
