Jade comes home today

Excitement is in the air today. It’s getting closer to Christmas, and Jade is flying in today. She should arrive late this evening via Delta.

Taking It Easy

But I did run across some pictures the other day of some old stuff that made me feel old. I’ll share some of the pictures. If you remember them, you may be getting old also.

Joke of the Day

A banker, an engineer and a lawyer were driving down a road when suddenly, their car broke down. Seeing a farm house near by, they decided to stop by and ask if they could sleep overnight while their car was being repaired.

"Sure", replied the farmer, "...but I only have two spare beds - one of you will have to sleep in the barn."

The engineer decided that he would sleep in the barn.

Ten minutes later, there was a knock at the bedroom door.
"I can't sleep in the barn - there is a cow in the barn and I am Hindu."

So, the banker agreed to sleep in the barn.

Ten minutes later, there was a knock at the door: "I can't sleep in the barn - there is a pig in the barn, and I am Jewish."

The lawyer said "I know what you're up to, but I'll go", and so the lawyer went out the barn.

Sure enough, ten minutes later, there was a knock at the door – it was the cow and the pig.

I did remember a lot of those things you had on your journal; I remember S/H stamps, etc! and I just recently turned 51; but I look at it as not getting older, just one day closer to going home :)
