Enjoying Kentucky... Missing Jade

We're in the Blue Grass State, and enjoying our time here. Beverly is enjoying seeing family and old friends. Last Saturday I took her for a lunch get together of the girls she grew up with in Pellville, Kentucky. (Pellville is a small town east of Owensboro on highway 144. It has a population of less that 5,000.) Libby, one of the "girls", sent me a web album showing these girls. You can see them at this link: Pellville Belles. They had a great time... It had been long time, some had not been together in over 40 years.

Today we are meeting Beverly's two Brothers for lunch at the Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn which is a Kentucky tradition. We're looking forward to getting together and having some great Bar-B-Q.

Missing Jade
We talk to Jade every day and we still miss her a lot. She called this morning to talk to Nana and Papa. She was on her way to do some bike riding on the Creeper Trail in Virginia. I know she will have a great time. She is in good hands.

Dad's Birthday
Dad had a wonderful birthday yesterday. We sure wish we could have been there with him and all the gang. Mandy, his great granddaughter, and Alex, her husband, spent two nights with them. Dad's grandson, Kevin, and his family came down to celebrate his birthday. You must go to Dad's Journal today and see the movie Dad posted on them singing Happy Birthday!

Joke of the Day

Nothing Is Funnier Than The Truth
  1. Only in America......can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.
  2. Only in America......are there handicapped parking places in front of a skating rink.
  3. Only in drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.
  4. Only in people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.
  5. Only in banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.
  6. Only in we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.
  7. Only in we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.
  8. Only in we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.
  9. Only in we use the word ‘politics’ to describe the process so well: ‘Poli’ in Latin meaning ‘many’ and ‘tics’ meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.
  10. Only in they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.
