Our Saturday Celebration

A Good Day
We had a great time yesterday celebrating my Dad's 95th birthday. Dad had all his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren with him except my daughter, Bethany, who lives in New York. This picture shows us at our luncheon. (click on the pictures for a larger view)

After our lunch, we went back to Dad's and enjoyed cake and ice cream. Look at Dad with that big cake. We had chocolate ice cream, too. It was delicious!

We had lots of fun talking and sharing stories. Alex and I went to the garden and picked some nice tomatoes for anyone who wanted to take some home. I got 3 bags full for Beverly and me!

More About Dad
Here's the picture and article that was in the Knoxville News-Sentinel on Sunday September 7, 2008.

I've learned it's good to have quiet time to be by yourself.


Quote of the Day
Remember the difference between a boss and a leader;
a boss says "Go!" -
a leader says "Let's go!"

Joke of the Day
A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor's office.

After his checkup, the doctor called the wife into his office alone. He said, "Your husband is suffering from a very severe stress disorder. If you don't follow my instructions carefully, your husband will surely die.

"Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant at all times. For lunch make him a nutritious meal. For dinner prepare an especially nice meal for him.

"Don't burden him with chores. Don't discuss your problems with him; it will only make his stress worse. Do not nag him. Most importantly, be kind and give him all your love and attention.

"If you can do this for the next 10 months to a year, I think your husband will regain his health completely."

On the way home, the husband asked his wife, "What did the doctor say?"

"He said you're going to die," she replied.
