Heading North

New York
Beginning today we are heading north to New York State. We'll be heading to Freedom, NY for a four day church convention. After that I hope to get a little fishing done in Lake Erie with my guide and friend, Captain Matt. Next on the schedule we'll visit Bethany, our daughter, in Rochester for several days. Hey Bethany, we're on our way, girl! Can't wait to see you!

I can't promise I'll be posting a blog entry every day, as it will depend on my free time and access to the Internet. But I am hoping to get a little written telling you about our travels and sharing a few pictures along the way.

Here's a picture taken by my son and his wife (Kevin & Lesley) last Saturday. They had two beautiful fawns visit the play are in the side yard by the swings. It looks like they are enjoying the green grass.

Joke of the Day
Young Chuck, moved to Montana and bought a Donkey from a farmer for $100.00. The farmer agreed to deliver the Donkey the next day. The next day he drove up and said, 'Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the donkey died.'

Chuck replied, 'Well, then just give me my money back.'

The farmer said, 'Can't do that. I went and spent it already.'

Chuck said, 'OK, then, just bring me the dead donkey.'

The farmer asked, 'What ya gonna do with him?

Chuck said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'

The farmer said, 'You can't raffle off a dead donkey!'

Chuck said, 'Sure I can Watch me.. I just won't tell anybody he's dead.'

A month later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, 'What happened with that dead donkey?'

Chuck said, 'I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $898.00.'

The farmer said, 'Didn't anyone complain?'

Chuck said, 'Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back.'

Chuck now works for the government.
