A Good Day

We had a good day of celebration for Beverly’s Birthday. Here’s a couple of pictures that we took last night.

That cake was all gone at the end of the evening. It was a Baskin-Robbins ice cream cake made with world class chocolate ice cream and chocolate cake. This was after an evening out at a local Italian restaurant where we had a happy and fun time.

Beverly is recovering well from her surgery, and is getting her strength back. I, too, am feeling much better and I seem to be over the bug I was fighting for a couple of weeks. We’re definitely on the way back to normal.


And we have another family birthday today. Read on…

Trucker and His Duck
Here’s another story about interesting relationships between man and animals. This is about a Minnesota truck driver who has a pet mallard duck who accompanies him on his trucking travels.

So don’t be surprised if you see a duck in the passenger seat of an 18 wheeler as you ride down the interstate. In fact, in this day and time don’t be surprised at anything you see (except maybe a duck in the driver’s seat).

Joke of the Day

Walking through a supermarket, a young man noticed an old lady following him around. He ignored her for a while, but when he got to the checkout line, she got in front of him.

"Pardon me," she said. "I'm sorry if I've been staring, but you look just like my son who died recently.

"I'm sorry for your loss," the young man replied. "Is there anything I can do for you?"

"Well, as I'm leaving, could you just say 'Goodbye, mother!?' It would make me feel so much better." She gave him a sweet smile.

"Of course I can," the young man promised.

As she gathered her bags and left, he called out "Goodbye, mother!" just as she had requested, feeling good about her smile.

Stepping up to the counter, he saw that his total was about $100 higher than it should be. "That amount is wrong," he said. "I only have a few items!"

"Oh, your mother said that you would pay for her," explained the clerk.
