Hasse, that looks straight off a post card. That's a beautiful shot.

Apparently it's in poor taste to tell leaving customers "Thanks for coming."

Beautiful photo Hasse, absolutely beautiful. Yes, you have winter in spades up where you live and more character than you know what to do with because of it.

Jim --- I hate you.

Mark, I'm not so fond of you at the moment either.

Fullofit, nice windows, love the stippled effect, very trendy.

ARUP, HumanDrone, and Mr_Dirt, I know what you mean about those yo-yo temps. In four days we went from -32F to +58F. What the what!

Thanks for sharing the pics of where you folks call home in all its wintery goodness. Love seeing 'em!

That would take character building to new heights.

Hasse gets a "Human Drone" award. See I, have that punny problem. Too bad mine aren't funny! (nice pic, btw, Hasse!)

When the brass says something is "building my character", how come I want to hit'em so hard their kids will be born dizzy?

But they are truly beautiful pics, even JFM's... although teeth-grindingly beautiful...

Well, let's see if i can do this.... I haven't got a more recent picture than this one from just before Christmas. We built this in 1978, been picking at it ever since. A major addition in 1992 (5 kids...), a renovation and new rooflines about 3 years ago... and so on.

Very nice place HD, and a beautiful locale. And look, you have snow too!

Except that it looks like that fake snow from the spray can. Now who’s fooling who ... whom, HD?

hmmmm, you might be right Fullofit. It does look a bit "Hollywood". Certainly not like the real snow seen in the following:

Gripping stuff, Lou! And the price is right, too.

Oh yes, a real bargain at only $12.95, (plus tax and old tire).

He's here all week, folks. And be sure to try the Reuben, it's a house specialty.

Thank you, I also do magic tricks. I’ll need one of those Reubens and a pretty volunteer from the audience.

Yup. I saw Henny Youngman do it at the Lamplighter back in '69. I won't say it's an old trick, but....

Was it a knuckle sandwich or a two-attractive volunteers sandwich?
