A Father’s Day Card

About Fish
I had a wonderful Father’s Day. It started Saturday with Kevin & family taking me to the Red Lobster. Then on Sunday we we with to see my Dad & Sister. Later in the day I received a call from my daughter. Kevin & family came by to visit me later after we returned from Knoxville. And later I received a phone call from my Granddaughter, Mandy. I had nice cards and neat gifts from each.

But I have to share the card I received from Zachary, Kara, Lesley and Kevin. Here’s picture so you can see the fish.

2010-06-21 08.48.26Here’s what it said:

Holy MACKEREL, you’re one great dad!
No TROUT about it.

You totally kick BASS,
Sure, you’re a CLOWN sometimes

But you’re a hip CAT, too!
In TUNA with the times!

Without you life would be CRAPPIE!
The whole family would FLOUNDER!

go on, but long story short…
You’re the Greatest Dad Ever,

and that’s no Fish Story!
Happy Father’s Day

The back side of the card said,
Love You Heart and SOLE!

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Some said that f
amilies are like fudge -
mostly sweet with a few nuts.  I’m one of the nuts.

Quote of the Day
Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you - not because they are nice,
but because you are.

Joke of the Day

In the hospital the relatives gathered in the waiting room, where a family member lay gravely ill. Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber. 'I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news,' he said as he surveyed the worried faces. 'The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant.  It's an experimental procedure, very risky, but it is the only hope. Insurance will cover the procedure, but you will have to pay for the BRAIN.'

The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a time, someone asked, 'How much will a brain cost?'

The doctor quickly responded, '$5,000 for a male brain; $200 for a female brain.'

The moment turned awkward.

Some of the men actually had to 'try' to not smile, avoiding eye contact with the women.

A man unable to control his curiosity, finally blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, 'Why is the male brain so much more than a female brain?'

The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained to the entire group, 'It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to price the female brains a lot lower because they've been used.'
