The Narrow House

Ever Feel Cramped?
While I was looking at my Mexico pictures recently I came across this picture of the "World's Narrowest House" according to the Guinness Book of Records. I took the picture from the street under bad conditions--I was facing into the sun. But I think you will get a pretty good idea of the size of this house. The house is located in Uruapan, Michoacan, Mexico.

The house appears to be 4 stores high, but very narrow. It is actually 4 feet 7 inches wide but is a little over 25 feet deep. Could you live there? No, not me! That would be worse than a travel trailer... and you've got lots of steps!

Here's a couple of links you mig

Check this picture of Jade! On Wednesday she went to a tea with Beverly at Sue B's home. A hat was required. Here's her picture. Cute, huh?

Jade's time with us is getting short. She flies out Tuesday. It's going to be very lonely around this old house when she leaves.

Joke of the Day
There were three fathers to be in a hospital waiting room, waiting for their babies to be born.

The first nurse comes out and tells the first father, "Congratulations you're the father of twins!" He says, “Great! I am the manager for the Minnesota Twins.”

The second nurse comes out and tells the second father, "Congratulations you're the father of triplets”! He says, "That's cool! I work for the 3M Company."

The third father opens the window and jumps out.

The third nurse comes out, and asks, “Where's the third father?"

One of the other fathers said, "Oh he jumped out the window.”

The nurse asks, "Why?"

He replied, "He works for Seven Up!"
