A Great Weekend

Guess What?
We had Dad and Mary visit us for the weekend. They arrived on Saturday and stayed through Sunday. We had a great time. I fixed them some lake trout on the grill for Saturday night supper, and Beverly prepared all the compliments to the delicious trout. We had oven fries, green beans, coleslaw and homemade corn bread… and cake and ice cream for dessert.

After supper we visited Kevin, Lesley, Kara, Zachary and Oreo. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching some fireworks, and playing with Oreo. Here’s a few pictures of the fun…

Yesterday we went to our Sunday morning meeting where we had a pot luck lunch, and in the afternoon we attended a Gospel Meeting. Dad and Mary headed back to Knoxville in the late evening with some left over desserts, some frozen lake trout for Dad to cook sometime, and some of Beverly’s homemade apple butter. We sure enjoyed having them with us!!!

Joke of the Day

A man walks out into the street and manages to get a taxi just going by. He gets into the taxi, and the cabbie says, "Perfect timing. You're just like Vince."

The passenger replied, "Who?"

"Vince Williams. There's a guy who did everything right. Like my coming along when you needed a cab. It would have happened like that to Vince every single time.”

The passenger said, “There are always a few clouds over everybody."

"Not Vince” replied the cab driver, “He was a terrific athlete. He could have gone on the pro tour in tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star."

"He was something, huh?"

The cabbie went on, "He had a memory like a trap. Could remember everybody's birthday. He knew all about wine, which fork to eat with. He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a light bulb, and the whole neighborhood blacks out."

The passenger said, "No wonder you remember him."

"Well, I never actually met Vince." said the cabbie.

Surprised, the rider asked, "Then how do you know so much about him?"

"I married his widow." said the cabbie with a sigh.
