Going to Visit Dad, Mary & Princess

Knoxville, Tennessee
We’re going to Knoxville today to see my Dad and Sister (and Princess, too). Mandy & Alex and Sylvia are also going to join us there and they will drive there from Lebanon, TN. And, Kevin and his family plan to meet us at Dad’s later today also.

This will give the family an opportunity to see Jade, and we will have a little Christmas celebration by being together. We plan to eat out for lunch and then return to Dad’s place to continue our family fun.

Dad send me a picture yesterday. It looks like he has been growing a moustache? This will help us recognize him today.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Someone said that the tongue must be heavy indeed,
because so few people can hold it.
(But it’s easy to wag.)

Quote of the Day
A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away.

~Eva Logue

Joke of the Day

The man was in no shape to drive, so he wisely left his car parked and walked home.

As he was walking unsteadily along, he was stopped by a policeman. "What are you doing out here at 2 A.M.?" said the officer.

"I'm going to a lecture." The man said.

"And who is going to give a lecture at this hour?" The cop asked.

"My wife." said the man.
….. and one more….
A drunken man at a party went up to a strange woman and embraced her clumsily. She slapped his face.

'I'm so sorry,' he said, 'I thought you were my wife.'

'Huh,' said the woman, 'You'd be a fine husband to have. Just look at you - a drunken, clumsy, disgusting brute.'

'Good heavens,' said the drunk, 'you talk like her, too.'
