This rain needs to go away long enough for my lawn to dry out.  I mired the John Deere this week.  I had to pull it out with the help of Dustin and my Dad's old truck.

Mary Norris is quoted as saying, "You can have friends or you can correct people's grammar."

Have a great week and take advantage of any day that happens to have some sunshine in it.
