Weekend Retreat

I am currently using a Compaq computer to access the interwebs. This computer is a good example of Compaq's line of no longer seen products. It could probably do with a backup and then formatting to remove all these bizarrely unhelpful utilities. Whatever, it's not mine.

I hope to write some this weekend. My hosts and I had plans to go engage some buckthorn in a vicious action over at Whitefish Dunes State Park, but since the temperature is currently hovering around freezing, our attack has been temporarily delayed. Given the wind and the fearsome weather predicted, our attack may be postponed indefinitely. I find myself unprepared for subzero temperatures and snow. I was told to expect colder weather but not winter weather. Perhaps I should have contacted our man in Michigan.

Crapola. I have just received word from my commanding officer that the attack is on since the buckthorn would never expect an attack in such weather. Hopefully, I will return alive and with all my fingers and toes.

he needs to add a lot more drinking if so.

I was able to procure a supply of Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss, so expect some of that in the future, Kathleen. I hope to bring a few boxes back to Genius Manor.

Good point, K-Unit. Less Hemi, more Thoreau?

I went from 88 to 38 when I came back from Vegas today.

I actually thought of draining the oil out of my snowblower last week, then thought I'd better wait until June, just to be safe. Oi.
