All is Well…

The Cabin
thecabin Things have been going OK around our home these past days. We’re excited about going to “the cabin” on Douglas Lake next week. It will be a good vacation for us. Most of our family will be joining us for at least part of the time while we are there.
Our stay at “the cabin” is a gift from our friends, Allen and Claudia, who live in Florida. They are so kind to offer us the use of their cabin.

We met them when Allen and I were both going to NC State College in 1961. Beverly and I lived in Married Student Housing in Apt. E22, and Allen and Claudia live just under us. We have kept in contact through the years. If you are ever interested in renting their cabin, check it out here:

We also were good friends with Monk and Lucy, who lived just across the breezeway from us in those Raleigh, NC apartments. We have stayed in touch with them through the years. Monk is a great fisherman, and I owe most of my success today from what I learned from him. He’s still involved in fishing, and has his own website store where he sells all type of fishing equipment. You might want to visit his site sometime:

Gone Fishing Today
GoneFishing2 The weather here has been stormy the earlier part of the week. And you know it would be hard for to go more that a week without fishing. So Doug and Ralph and I will be on the lake sometime this morning if all goes as planned. We may go to Watauga Lake for a change of pace. We tried Watauga a couple of times in the last few years and have done poorly. We’ll decide where to go while we’re on the road.

Quote of the Day
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.

Joke of the Day

Two guys who worked together were both laid off, so off they went to the unemployment office. Asked his occupation,the first guy said, "Panty stitcher. I sew the elastic onto cotton panties."

The clerk looked up panty stitcher. Finding it classed as unskilled labor, she gave him $300 a week unemployment pay.

The second guy was asked his occupation. "Diesel fitter, " he replied.

Since diesel fitters was a skilled job, the clerk gave the second guy $600 a week.

When the first guy found out, he was furious. He stormed back in to find out why his friend and co-worker was collecting double his pay.

The clerk explained: Panty stitchers were unskilled and diesel fitters skilled labor.

"What skill?" yelled the panty stitcher. "I sew the elastic on. He pulls on it and say, 'Yep, diesel fitter'. "
