Beauty of Winter
We had an extremely frigid December here in East Tennessee, and a big snow also. While we don’t always enjoy those cold windy days, we all have to admit that winter time can be a time of beauty.

If you click on the picture below, you will be taken to a slide show that shows some beautiful art work of winter time. It’s a presentation by GreatDanePro.


Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Here it is the first Monday of the new year. It’s time to get busy and make something happen. The holidays are over and there’s work to be done. Are you ready?

Quote of the Day
We will open the book.  Its pages are blank. 
We are going to put words on them ourselves. 
The book is called Opportunity and
its first chapter is New Year's Day. 
~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Joke of the Day

A woman in her eighties made the evening news because she was getting married for the fourth time. The following day she was being interviewed by a local TV station, and the commentator asked about what it felt to be married again at that age and would she share part of her previous experiences, since it seem quite unique the fact that her new husband was a ‘funeral director.’

After a short time to think, a smile came to her face and she proudly explained that she had first married a banker when she was in her twenties, in her forties she married a circus ring master, and in her sixties she married a pastor and now in her eighties, a funeral director.

The amazed commentator asked her why she had married men with such diverse carriers.

With a smile on her face she explained, ‘I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go.’
