Hi gang, the rain didn't miss today. I did get the grass cut thankful for that. It was already too high. My daughter and family went to the lake today. They did get caught in the rainstorm. Linda said the rain has followed her from Chicago.

Last oddss I herd on the US open; Tiger 3 to 1 my man Fredd 50 to 1! It should be a good golftournamentt. I can hardly wait.

Did any one other than me get in the dog-house today? I left the close on the line during the rain! Did I get an ear full!

An optimist and a pessimist

An optimist sees the best in the world, while a pessimist sees only the worst. An optimist finds the positive in the negative, and a pessimist can only find the negative in the positive.

For example, an avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him.

He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, a pessimist by nature, and invited him to hunt with him and his new dog.

As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by.Theyy fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than his paws wet. This continued all day long; each time a duck fell, the dog walked across the surface of the water to retrieve it.

The pessimist watched carefully, saw everything, but did not say a single word.

On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, "Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?"

"Yes, I sure did," responded the pessimist. "He can't swim."

Thought for the day, some days you just can’t do any thing right!

Word for the day; Swatch.
