ST. LOUIS - Favored by few, the St. Louis Cardinals used an unlikely cast of characters to win their first World Series in nearly a quarter century.And we all remember who they beat in 1982 to take that title, don't we?? That was a fun year for baseball in 'Sconsin. Congrats to the Cards and their fans!

It's kinda fun, having a cameraphone. (Yeah, yeah, I know....but I'm just barely into the 90's here, let alone the twenty-first century. Give me a break for being slow.) I lug the phone around everywhere anyway, trying to decide if I'm ready to completely drop the landline. (Yes.) So it's fun to be able to just whip out my phone for a picture. Too bad they aren't the best quality. Yes. Snow *is* falling out of this cloud. I thought this guy must be nuts--at 36 degrees, it was awful cold out there for fishing. He probably thought the same thing about me and my bicycle, though.
...was sent by buddy Barb. I wonder if it's a coincidence that her new Pomeranian puppy is named "Snowball"?
Spotted on Camp Phillips Road « WWW.WAUSAUBLOG.ORG And yeah, it's doing the same thing here. Ugh.
Candidate touts sex with Packers in campaign - CNN.com
MADISON, Wisconsin (AP) -- Sex! The Green Bay Packers! Sex WITH the Green Bay Packers!I mean...the headline says it all. The only thing that could have improved it might have been the mention of "deer hunting". And beer. Maybe.... Sex and Leinie's with the Green Bay Packers! Wearing Blaze Orange!! Sandy would win in a landslide. LaFollette wouldn't stand a chance, political legacy or no.
The usually ho-hum race for Wisconsin secretary of state is being spiced up by one candidate's naughty tell-all book about her bed-hopping exploits with Green Bay football legends during the team's glory days under Vince Lombardi in the 1960s. Sandy Sullivan, a 65-year-old Republican with no political experience, self-published a gushing memoir in 2004 titled "Green Bay Love Stories and Other Affairs" in which she claims she was the girlfriend of Green Bay Packers Paul Hornung and Dan Currie, deflected a pass from Hall of Famer Don Hutson and was on the receiving end of a saucy comment from Richard Nixon. In it, she confides that her goal was always to marry a pro football player, saying they are "fast, sleek and clean," are built like "Greek gods" and love women. "The football players of the 1950s and '60s were every bit as 'HOT' as the men of the present day, if not more so," Sullivan writes of the days when she was a trim, miniskirted brunette who did some modeling. "Remember, the '60s was the 'dawning of the Age of Aquarius' and some women ... were thrilled to experience this brave, new freedom, and celebrate our sexuality ... and the football players loved it!"
Look out, you southern-type folks -- they're on their way. The last week or so, I've been able to hear honking nearly every night as they fly over. They're also on the ground. Leaving PILES of goose poop behind. Some of which I managed to pedal over on the trail the other day and splatter EVERYWHERE. Goose poop on a white sweatshirt is an instant laundry problem. Doesn't scrub off bare legs too well, either.
I love nature.

Yep, got over to the Demo rides and down came the rain..... and for SOME reason, Harley-Davidson doesn't think they should let us overeager possible buyers play on their toys in a downpour. Can't imagine why.... So all I got to do was dry the seats (I will leave it to your imagination as to exactly *how* I did that) of various models. Today, the Night Train is my favorite!!! Ninety-six inches (I've had CARS with smaller motors!) of throaty rumble. That "blacked-out" stealth paintjob (I never got into the chrome thing). Drag bars. Bobbed fenders. Drool. Even if it *is* a Softail. Squirrely damn things.
Tomorrow, I'll probably fall in love with the V-rod again. Heh.
