Weather: In the 30’s.

Trail Conditions: Wet and white.

Mild temps for the next week. That’s just fine though we don’t get much traffic until after Christmas. I’ll be at Dutches until December 25th and then it is off to Fish Tales for the winter. Email me your dates for rentals, it will be snowtime before we know it.

Sister Mary entered the Monastery of Silence. The Priest said; “Sister, this is a silent monastery. You are welcome here as long as you like, but you may not speak until directed to do so.”


Sister Mary lived in the monastery for 5 years before the Priest said to her, “Sister Mary, you have been here for 5 years. You may speak two words.”


Sister Mary said, “Hard bed.”


“I’m sorry to hear that,” the Priest said, “We will get you a better bed.”


After another 5 years, Sister Mary was summoned by the Priest.


“You may say another two words, Sister Mary.”


“Cold food,” said Sister Mary, and the Priest assured her that the food would be better in the future.  On her 15th anniversary at the monastery, the Priest again called Sister Mary into his office.


“You may say two words today.”


“I quit,” said Sister Mary.


“It’s probably best,” said the Priest, “You’ve done nothing but bitch since you got here.”
