Way to go Bucky! Ya can't win them all, if you don't win the first. So much for the BB pundits who rated Belmont as an upset over Wisconsin in Round One of the NCAAs.

The Badger team free throw percentage is almost a high as to odds of my sticking my foot in my mouth on the TLB. (Or that of Catfish posting a "groaner of a joke"!)

It's nice to hear the sump pump running again. Spring is almost here!

(Where's my fishing gear???)

Yes indeed Spring is on it's way. I saw fuzzy caterpillars wiggling across the road while walking last night. Time to think about opening up the camper.

And WOO HOO Bucky!

Saw a moth yesterday crawling up the picture window on the outside. Someone told me they were 'snow' moths that come up thru the snow in spring.

Bucky needed a "cut man" early, but looked great at the end!

Saw three cranes while on a drive to & from Point. Wonder what they feed on this time of year?

Comments made in the year 1955!

That’s only 56 years ago!

‘I’ll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it’s going to be impossible to buy a week’s groceries for $10.00. ‘

‘Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won’t be long before $1, 000.00 will only buy a used one.’

‘Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter.’

‘If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.’

‘When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon. Guess we’d be better off leaving the car in the garage.’

‘I’m afraid to send my kids to the movies any more. Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying D**N in ‘GONE WITH THE WIND’, it seems every new movie has either H**L or D**N in it.’

‘Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn’t surprise me if someday they’ll be making more than the President. ‘

‘It’s too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet. ‘

‘No one can afford to be sick anymore. At $15.00 a day in the hospital, it’s too rich for my blood.’

‘If they think I’ll pay 30 cents for a hair cut, forget it.’
