Great Weekend

Mary’s Birthday
My son Kevin drove to Knoxville on Saturday morning and brought Dad and Mary to Kingsport. First, we all met for lunch (Kevin’s treat at local restaurant) then we went to ball game to watch Zachary and his team.


The above photo shows the team, and Zachary is Number 1 on the front row. This following photo shows Dad, Mary, Kevin and Beverly enjoying the game.


After the game we came to our home where we enjoyed birthday cake and ice cream. Mary was smiling as we were singing “Happy Birthday to You”.

Here’s a picture of Mary with Kara and Zachary before we destroyed the cake.

After all the festivities, Kevin drove back to Knoxville to take Dad and Mary back home. How’s that for a son who goes the extra mile for his family. Thanks Kevin!

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
If you don’t have family,
you are a very needy person.

All my quotes of the day this week will be from Ronald Reagan in memory of his 100th Birthday this week.
Quote of the Day
Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.
~ Ronald Reagan
Joke of the Day

Did you hear about old Joe. He read about the federal government’s  travel warnings due to the cold weather. The government suggested that anyone traveling in the current blizzard conditions should make sure they carry the following:

- Shovel
- Blankets or sleeping bag
- Extra clothing including hat and gloves
- 24 hours worth of food
- De-icer
- Rock salt
- Flashlight with spare batteries
- Road flares or reflective triangles
- Full spare gas can
- First aid kit
- Booster cables

He followed the instruction, but he looked like an idiot on the bus the next morning.

(Thanks to my friend Nancy)
