Coffee and Provocation

Since You Were Born

Is It Going to be a Bitterly Cold Winter?
That's the report from the folks who are paying attention to acorns and persimmons in this area.

He Had Wooden Balls and a Big Swinging Mallet
Billy the Kid played croquet.

The Best Option is to Hit the Deer?
When you encounter a deer on the road, the safest thing to do is hit it.  Seriously?
