Good Saturday Morning!


Good morning. All is quiet and peaceful at our home this morning. Jade is now living with us, and I haven't seen her this morning. She was tired from all the excitement of yesterday, and sleeping in a little this morning. We had a great time at our picnic last night. We have "potluck" picnics, and there is always plenty of good food. Jade got a chance to meet many of our friends and sample some of our East Tennessee home cooking. Here's a picture taken of Jade, Beverly and I at the picnic. We have our picnics at the Eastman Recreation Area at the base of Bays Mountain which is a short drive from Kingsport, Tennessee.

Jade's up! Beverly explaining the workings of the microwave and where to find food in our kitchen. It Jade's first breakfast with us.

Joke of the Day

An aged husband and wife are sitting on the front porch. The wife said, "I certainly would appreciate a vanilla ice cream cone." Husband: "I'll hobble right down to the drugstore and get you one dear." Wife: "Now, remember, I want vanilla. You always get chocolate. Write it down - Vanilla." Husband replied, "I can certainly remember vanilla. The store is only two blocks away." Husband comes back with a hamburger and hands it to his wife. She looks at it disgustedly. "I knew you'd forget the mustard," she said.

What a wonderful thing to have an exchange student staying with you. It will be lots of fun for all of you.
