Oh I am mighty late today sorry Karla & company!

What "old wise tales" have you heard to predict what kind of winter we will have ?
When the skins on the tomatoes are tough we will have a very cold winter. I'll let ya know if it holds true as the skins were tough this year.

I thought getting through to my county officials was difficult, then I tried to reach my state rep.

Do you have a stapler in your home ?
We do

How about a staple remover ?
Of course need that too right?

Will there be pumpkins at your home this fall ?
Right after school tomorrow!

Today's Question(s):
This was suggested by one of our loyal ? family

What "old wives' tales" have you heard to predict what kind of winter we will have?


I haven't heard any this fall, but then I don't really pay attention to that kind of thing. In the past, I recall people saying that the stripes on wooly-bear caterpillars were an indicator of the length of the winter. And there was something in one of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books about the thickness of a beaver dam being a clue to the length and severity of the upcoming winter. But I think the El Nino/La Nina currents are the best predictors for us in the Midwest.

Bonus Question:

I thought getting through to
our telephone and internet service provider was difficult, then I tried to reach the bank where my late father's IRA was deposited.

Extra Credit Question:

Do you have a stapler in your home?


Yep.

How about a staple remover?

Yep, multiple ones. Five on each hand, in fact!

Just for Fun:

Will there be pumpkins at your home this fall?


Oh, yes - I am still very much an overgrown kid when it comes to carving pumpkins. And when the neighborhood kids come to the door to trick-or-treat, they usually deliver the verdict that our jack-o-lanterns are the coolest on the block. This is one I carved a couple of years ago - a little blurry, I fear, but you get the idea.

Hi everyone! I am almost too tired to post but couldn't miss the QOTD!

Heres my abridged answers:

I heard it is going to be a cold, snowy winter! At least if it is going to be cold, then I want snow too!

I have a few staplers and staple removers in my house.

Pumpkins, yes! We love Halloween!

Going to sleep now...long day and my eyes are very heavy! See you in the am!
