Bobbing For Apples

    Good Morning Gentle Readers, TWC nearly drowned a few times while bobbing for apples in old galvanized wash tubs. I wasn't worth a tinker's damn at it, neither.

    Good Morning Gentle Readers, The Boy and I had breakfast at Lake Elsinore Casino with our friend Mike this morning.
