Fall is in the Air

Well, Almost
Here it is September 1, 2010. This year has been speeding by. Now it time the air will start cooling, and before long we’ll be seeing some frosty mornings. I looking forward to Fall. It’s a favorite time of the year for me. I like tha
t cool, crisp air, and seeing the fall colors. (No more mowing the lawn. No more weed eating! Etc.)

BUT I dread what comes after Fall. I’m thinking that old man winter is going to be pretty cruel this year. I have this feeling that we’re going to have a snowy and subzero winter here in Tennessee. I hope I’m wrong.

Here’s a animation of snow cover changes with the seasons.

Happiness does not come from owning a lot of things.
It most comes from appreciating and sharing the things that you do have.

Joke of the Day

A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him. The waitress asks them for their orders.
The man says, 'A hamburger, fries and a coke,' and turns to the ostrich, 'What's yours?'

'I'll have the same,' says the ostrich.

A short time later the waitress returns with the order 'That will be $9.40 please,' and the man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment.

The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and the man says, 'A hamburger, fries and a coke.'

The ostrich says, 'I'll have the same.'

Again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change.

This becomes routine until the two enter again. 'The usual?' asks the waitress.

'No, this is Friday so I will have a steak, baked potato and a salad,' says the man.

'Same,' says the ostrich.

Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, 'That will be $32.62.'

Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places it on the table.

The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer. 'Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change in your pocket every time?

'Well,' says the man, 'several years ago I was cleaning the attic I found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would always be there.'

'That's brilliant!' says the waitress. 'Most people would ask for a million dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!'

'That's right. Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there,' says the man..

The waitress asks, 'What's with the ostrich?'

The man sighs... pauses and answers, 'My second wish was for a chick with long legs and who agrees with everything I say.'
