Pant Sale or Pants Sale?

PantSaleThis ad pictured was in the Knoxville News-Sentinel last Sunday. I have never heard of such. Pant means to gasp for breath, and I doubt that they could sell that.

So it’s almost certain that they meant to say “Pants Sale.”

Did Abe Lincoln Say This?
I got the following in the mail they other day, and I like what I read and I agree with it. But I wondered if Lincoln really said those things. Does anyone know?

Fishing Report
We had a fun day of fishing yesterday at S. Holston Lake. We got our limit in Lake Trout, but we fizzled out on the Rainbow Trout. Here’s a few pictures…

Here’s the stringer. The 6 fish weighed about 15 pounds. P1050961
Some of the beautiful scenery… P1050918
It’s a beautiful lake with the mountains in the background. P1050939

I love the sweet smell of dawn -
our unique daily opportunity to smell time,
to smell opportunity -
each morning being, a new beginning.

Joke of the Day

Given that Al Gore has no job, he decided to take a sightseeing vacation to Europe. While visiting England, he is invited to tea with the Queen. He asks her what her leadership philosophy is. She says that it is to surround herself with intelligent people. He asks how she knows if they're intelligent. "I do so by asking them the right questions," says the Queen. "Allow me to demonstrate."

She phones Tony Blair. "Mr. Prime Minister," she says, "please answer this question: "Your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or sister. Who is it?"

Tony Blair responds, "It's me, ma'am."

"Correct. Thank you and good-bye, sir," says the Queen. She hangs up and says, "Did you get that, Mr. Gore?"

"Yes ma'am. Thanks a lot. I'll definitely be using that!"

Upon returning home, he decides he'd better put some of his old friends to the test. He calls Bill Clinton and says, "Hi, Bill, I wonder if you can answer a question for me."

"Why, of course, Al. What's on your mind?" "Uhh, your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"

Clinton hems and haws and finally asks, "Can I think about it and get back to you?" Gore agrees, and Clinton hangs up. Clinton immediately calls members of his old staff, and they puzzle over the question for several hours, but nobody can come up with an answer. Finally, in desperation, Clinton calls Colin Powell at the State Department and explains his problem. "Now look here, your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"

Powell answers immediately, "It's me, of course, you idiot."

Much relieved, Clinton rushes back to call Gore and exclaims, "I know the answer, Al! I know who it is! It's Colin Powell!"

"Wrong!" Gore replies. "It's Tony Blair."
