Christmas Lights at BMS

Lights!!! Last night we went to see the Christmas Lights at the Bristol Motor Speedway. Beverly and I took Zachary, Kara and Jade with us.

They call it Speedway in Lights, Powered by TVA. It is a most spectacular holiday light show with m
ore than 1.5 million lights and 200-plus displays. (The proceeds from the event benefit the Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities.)

We tried to capture a little of our drive through the lights on video. Click the arrow to see the video clip.

Answer to yesterday's puzzle... The Man in the Bar
The man had hiccups. The barman recognized this from his speech and drew the gun in order to
give him a shock. It worked and cured the hiccups - so the man no longer needed the water.

Quote of the Day
“Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror,
victory however long and hard the road may be;
for without victory there is no survival.”
~ Winston Churchill

Joke of the Day
(Not really a joke but a good story)

An elderly gentleman of 83 arrived in Paris by plane. At the French customs desk, the man took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry-on bag.

"You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked, sarcastically.

The elderly gentleman admitted he had been to France previously and the Frenchman said, "Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."

The American said, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."

"Impossible. Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France!"

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained. "Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find any Frenchmen to show it to."
