Tis the season for road construction

There is an old joke in Minnesota...the four seasons of the year are: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction. There is another joke about how road construction always consists of one guy working and a bunch of others watching. (The guy doing the work in Minnesota isn't named Andre, however, it's more likely Bob.)

I've driven a lot of roads in the past month and there is road construction everywhere! This is good for all the Bobs earning a paycheck and all the supervisors buying new cars. It's all helping to rebuild the economy.

I always say, "Whatever works!"

"Whatever works" -- yes. I'd like to add "Whoever works" -- and I'd like it to be ME!!! Wah!

Very funny!!!!

Ohio roads are always under construction too. The Freenway is lined with big orange drums in construction zones. Most people from Ohio call the orange drums the Ohio State Flower :-)

Dear Olde Penniwig, it's a shame you're not earning big bucks watching somebody else working. But with your computer skills, you should find something eventually.

I've never heard about the Ohio state flower, Joanna. Thanks for keeping me in the loop!
