Going to School

A Cool Ride
Somewhere in Columbia, South America, there is a death defying cable ride that children ride to get to school. If you haven’t seen this, it is worth watching.

I Traded My old Truck
On this past Thursday I made a trade of my old 1986 Ford F150 pickup truck. I did not trade for another vehicle, I traded for a lawn mower.

I have a lady friend that recently called my old pickup truck, “homey”. (That got me! Don’t people know you are not to criticize a man’s truck!) Anyway, I decided it was time to get rid of my old F150. Now I have a new Snapper tractor-riding mower with a big 20 HP engine.

Joke of the Day

A lawyer read the will of a rich man to the deceased's family:

"To my loving wife Rose, who stood by me in rough times, as well as good, I leave the house and $2 million."

The lawyer continued, "To my daughter Jessica, who looked after me in sickness and kept the business going, I leave the yacht, the business and $1 million."

The lawyer concluded, "And, to my cousin Dan, who hated me, argued with me, and thought that I would never mention him in my will - well you are wrong: Hi Dan!"

Jim,
That cable ride to school is amazing. And to think that we have parents here that complain about a bumpy school bus ride to school and the fact that their children have to bring home books!
