Our buddy Jer doesn't seem to understand vacation.

Just got a PM and he is having fun, other than being bitten by the black flies.

He is getting better on his mini-keyboard. Didn't know he tuned Casios.

Feel free to add you trackings of our Dear Mr. Groot. Don't tell him, though. whistle

(I always read the "Paging" thread. I love it!)

Your dear friend Jerry is having a bit of a problem with a dinky keyboard and keeping the space bar separate from every other fricken key that seems to always be in the way. Thank God!,, that iPad three has some lady that tells me what she thinks I am trying to say. Otherwise God only knows what might be written here with all of my mistakes! At least she keeps it half way right!

The weather up here is great however, the forecast for Wednesday night is fricken 30
Degrees!!!!! What the heck!?!? I though it was summer time.


Vacation? What's that? I think the iPad will be left home next vacation.it is a pain. Especially after a couple of beers. help

you can shim below the space bar so it does not touch the keys.

as simple as that. Or you could buy the Ipad4. ...

Keep typing with the iPad, Jerry, and soon you'll say "The weather is here, wish you were beautiful!"

Take heart, Jerry, Pretoria had FROST this morning, which is quite unusual, especially for June. 3° Celsius (37°F) when I drove to work.

What little moisture was left in the air will certainly be gone now. Piano nursing time...

Jerry wasn't even supposed to know about this thread.

I was hiding it from him.

Yea, right!

Morning update on Buddy Jer --

It seems that he is still having trouble with the chilling of some delicate parts of his anatomy. He didn't exactly phrase it that way, however.

Maybe some spiked hot chocolate would help.

Jerry should have come to Florida - mid 90's and humid all week. A cool down to about 89 degrees this weekend. I don't know If I'll be able to handle the colder air.

What do you mean "all week" ?
Let's try "until November " ......

Oh BDB - I can't stop laughing!

Up by Jerry's cabin, there must be all sorts of critters which could be an option.



(I almost suggested a beaver, but thought better of it.)

Yeah! You have to be very quick Bob, in order to view the picture properly!

I'mmmmmmmmmm baccccccck! We had a wonderful time up there, DESPITE the crappy weather the first few days. Talk about cold??? I might as well have been in Alaska on an ice berg!

We got a new boat hoist, got it installed with a solar panel for the battery to crank it so that I don't have too.... loving that! Been parking it in the lake all of this time before! Not much fun walking out to the boat in lousy, cold, windy weather for a ride but, now, no problem! I even had a stepping pad placed on the hoist. Yeah, I'm spoiled, but, only a little bit!

Now it's back to reality but, ONLY for 2 weeks then I'm off again back up to the cottage for one more week of vacation.

Thanks for all of the well wishes!!!!
