At Bethany's

We're in Rochester, NY. We had a wonderful drive yesterday from Ithaca to Rochester. We saw many beautiful sights including the finger lakes, the vineyards, a state park, many farms and fields with corn, soybeans, cabbage, and sunflowers.

We're happy to be with our daughter. We'll certainly enjoy our days together with her here in Rochester.

Here's picture of Beverly and I at the Taughannock Falls taken yesterday. A view of the falls is in the background.

I just love nature and the beautiful scenic sights we have all across our wonderful nation. No matter where you go in the USA you can find beautiful and well preserved state and national parks.

We don't have to do great things in life.
What's important is that we do little things in kindness and love.

Joke of the Day
Chris and Mona are flying to Australia for a two-week vacation to celebrate their 40th anniversary.

Suddenly, over the public address system, the Captain announces, " Ladies and Gentlemen, I am afraid I have some very bad news. Our engines have ceased functioning and we will attempt an emergency landing. Luckily, I see an uncharted island below us and we should be able to land on the beach. However, the odds are that we may never be rescued and will have to live on the island for the rest of our lives!"

Thanks to the skill of the flight crew, the plane lands safely on the island.

An hour later Chris turns to his wife and asks, "Mona, did we make this month's mortgage payment to Bank?"

" No, sweetheart," she responds.

Chris, still shaken from the crash landing, then asks, "Mona, did we pay our Bank Master card yet?"

"Oh no! I'm sorry. I forgot to send the check," she says.

"One last thing, Mona. Did you remember to send a check for the auto loan to them too this month?" he asks.

"Oh, forgive me, Chris," begged Mona. "I didn't send that one, either."

Chris grabs her and gives her the biggest hug in 40 years. Mona pulls away and asks him, "So, why did you hug me?"

Chris answers, "They'll find us!!!!"
