Miscellany for Day Two, 2008

Jade & Snow
Jade had never seen any snow until last night. It started snowing in Kingsport and covered the ground pretty quickly with a light snow. When we told her it was snowing she ran to get her coat and was soon outside with the snowflakes falling around and on her.

Thinking of Bethany
I wanted to give a special Hello to my daughter who lives in Rochester, NY. "I love you, Bethany, and wish we lived closer together."

Joke of the Day
A door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman manages to bull his way into a woman's home in a rural area. "This machine is the best ever" he exclaims, whilst pouring a dusty bag of dirt over the middle of her living room floor.

The woman says she's really worried it may not all come off.

So the salesman says, "If this machine doesn't remove all the dirt completely, I'll lick it off the floor myself."

"Do you want ketchup on it?" she says, "we're not connected for electricity yet!"
