Granddaddy’s Friday

5:30 AM
I took Kevin, my son, to the airport. He was leaving on a company trip.

10:00 AM
Beverly and I went to the gym to work out. One of my knees was bothering me, so I only did 30 minutes on the arc trainer, but I did another 30 minutes on a stationary bike. We also did all out weight exercises.

Scott’s strawberries are coming in, and we stopped to buy some more. They are really good this year.

12:30 PM
ADT came to replace some batteries in our home security alarm system.

Had a little lunch, took a short nap, and took a needed shower.

4:45 PM
IMG_1478Left home to pick up Kara and Zachary for swimming lessons. Friday was the last day. The picture to the right shows them getting some lessons on how to dive.

Kara’s next step in swimming would be to join a swimming team. She’s an excellent swimmer. As for Zachary, his teacher said he should definitely be in the advanced class next year.

6:45 PM
We took Kara and Zachary out for a celebration dinner at Chili’s. After supper we went to the Marble Slab for ice cream.

9:30 PM
We took Kara and Zachary home. We had a wonderful time with them today.

Best Wishes for a Wonderful Weekend.
Keep safe, enjoy life, be happy,
and show kindness to all.

Joke of the Day

It was a cold winter day when an old man walked out onto a frozen Lake Erie, cut a hole in the ice, dropped in his fishing line and began waiting for a fish to bite.

He was there for almost an hour without even a nibble when a young At 5:30 boy walked out onto the ice, cut a hole in the ice not too far from the old man and dropped in his fishing line. It only took about a minute. WHAM! A largemouth bass hit his hook and the boy pulled in the fish. The old man couldn't believe it but figured it was just luck. But the boy dropped in his line and again within just a few minutes pulled in another one.

He went to the boy and said, "Son, I've been here for over an hour without even a nibble. You have been here only a few minutes and have caught two fish! How do you do it?" To which the boy responded, "Roo raf roo reep ra rums rarm."

What was that you said?" the old man asked. Again the boy responded, "Roo raf roo reep ra rums rarm."

"Look, son" said the old man, "I can't understand a word you're saying."

So the boy spit a wad into his hands and said,

"You have to keep the worms warm!"

If it wasn't for my friendly and wonderful swim instructor Christina. I think I wouldn't have taken to swimming so much. I'll be sure to send my kids to take up lessons with her. Where did you learn swimming anyhows?
