Golfer's Complaints

A foursome of senior golfers hit the course with waning enthusiasm for the sport.

"These hills are getting steeper as the years go by," one complained.

"These fairways seem to be getting longer too," said one of the others.

"The sand traps seem to be bigger than I remember them too," said the third senior.

After hearing enough from his Senior buddies, the oldest, and the wisest of the four of them at 87 years old, piped up and said...


"Quit your dang complaining and just be thankful we're still on the top side of the grass!"

Daily Horoscope

Saturday, October 21, 2017

We have the "all clear" today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
Today you feel passionately about practically everything. But then, you are a passionate sign! You feel things intensely, and then poof! It's over. Next? (You're fast on the draw.) You have intelligent ideas about shared property, taxes, debt and inheritances today.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Because the Moon today is opposite your sign, you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others, which means you have to be conciliatory and accommodating. Well, this is easy for you to do because you are conciliatory and accommodating on a daily basis. You're "nice."

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You'll feel pleased to do anything that makes you feel you better organized. Clean up messy areas in your car, your bedroom, your bathroom. My music teacher used to say: "When sweeping the floor, take care of the corners because the middle will take care of itself." True! (Yes, I practiced me scales.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
While some people are busy working today, the truth is you would rather play because you feel prankish, flirtatious and fun-loving! Sports events, activities with children, the arts and anything to do with crafts will appeal. By all means, socialize with friends. "Hail fellow, well met!"

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
It's Saturday, nevertheless, you want to hide at home in comfy surroundings. Possibly, you will entertain at home and invite people over. Or perhaps you will just cocoon with a nice Pinot Noir and some smoked Gruyere. Ah, the good life! (And there's Netlfix.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You're in the mood for some action today! Short trips, errands and conversations with everyone will keep you on your toes. Many of you are involved with relatives and siblings today. You certainly are eager to talk to someone because you want to share an idea!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You might be shopping today. (Libra is the sign of haute couture, which is why you like to dress well.) You also love beautiful things, especially linens, tableware, home furnishings - you name it.) Basically, money is on your mind today.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Today the Moon is in your sign, which makes you more emotional than usual. But the upside is that it brings you a little bit of extra good luck. This means you have an edge over all the other signs! (We like.) Test this by asking the Universe for a favour.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
It's been a popular time for you lately, and today, even though it's Saturday, you need to hide so you can catch your breath. After all, you can't be all things to all people all of the time. Although you're pretty good at it for most of the time! Chill out.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
A discussion with a female friend could be important today. Whatever the case, you will probably be involved with a female acquaintance for some reason. This interaction might ultimately cause you to change your future goals. Who knows?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
It looks like personal details about your private life are public today. Maybe someone is doing a credit check? Maybe someone is talking about you? Just be aware of this, especially when talking to parents and bosses. You are a tad exposed.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Do something different today to satisfy your urge for adventure! The perfect choice would be to travel somewhere new and exciting. But you will also be stimulated if you have a chance to learn something new from a course or talking to someone who is "different."

If Your Birthday Is Today
Actress/writer Carrie Fisher (1956-2016) shares your birthday today. You are intelligent, charming and have excellent communication skills. You are also optimistic and inspirational to others. This is a year full of excitement and change! Opportunities will present themselves, and when they do, you must act fast. Your personal freedom will be a top priority. You will also travel this year and do things to expand your horizons. Enjoy this busy, fast-paced year!

SNOW in OCTOBER

Good Evening JAP
Well when we went to bed last evening we had a very small idea of how much snow we were getting. Could not see hubby's foot prints in the snow on the steps or the tire tracks where he parks his car at 9:30 last night.
When day broke this morning and get got light enough to see we had 5 foot drifts all around the house. Our vehicles look like the great white monster. Rocky Boy MT did not have school today and no school tomorrow. Last night we heard that all the roads in Rocky Boy were closed due to heavy blowing snow with tree down. Even Highway 2 which is a very important road that goes from east to west in upper northern Montana. It was closed also for trees down and drifts over the road. We were supposed to get around 18 inches. Instead we got 30 inches with 40 mph winds.
My truck which is a Ford 150 4x4 has a 5 foot drift on all four sides and I have a patch of snow to shovel tomorrow that is about 6 feet long by 5 ft deep. Not looking forward to do it.
