Scenery and Picasa Web Albums

I started a new Picasa Web Album a few days ago. It is just for scenery pictures that I take during 2008. Usually after I snap 50 or so pictures, I find one or two that I like. This is that kind of album. Most of the pictures will be in East Tennessee and will just include scenes around the area.

You can also access it here: Jim's 2008 Scenery Album. And, you can access all my Picasa Web Albums here at: Jim's Public Gallery.

Quote of the Day
Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.
~Samuel Ullman


Joke of the Day
This is the story of two elderly people living in a mobile home park in Strathmore. He was a widower and she a widow. They had known each other for a number of years.

One evening there was a community supper at the Club House and the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles. They had a wonderful evening and spirits were high.

The widower sent a few admiring glances across the table and the widow smiled coyly back at him. Finally he plucked up his courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?"

After about six seconds of careful consideration, she answered, "Yes, yes I will?"

The meal ended with a few more pleasant exchanges and they went to their respective homes.

The next morning the widower was troubled. Did she say Yes or did she say No? He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. He went over the conversation of the previous evening, but his mind was blank. He remembered asking the question but for the life of him could not recall her response.

With fear and trepidation he picked up the phone and called her. First he explained that he didn't remember as well as he use to. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past. As he gained a little more courage he then inquired of her. "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say Yes or did you say No?

"Why you silly man I said "Yes, Yes I will". And I meant it with all my heart."

The widower was delighted. He felt his heart skip a beat.

Then she continued. "And I am so glad you called because I couldn't remember who asked me.
