Vacation Last Week

At The Cabin
Many of you may know that we had a family vacation last week at a lovely cabin on Douglas Lake which is near Dandridge, Tennessee. The cabin is owned by some good friends of ours (Allen & Claudia) who each year give us time to stay and enjoy some good days away from home with our family.

We had a wonderful time. I didn’t do any fishing but we enjoyed time on the lake pulling the kids on tubes and skis. Here’s a few pictures from our vacation…

Kevin, Lesley, Kara, and Zachary joined us on Friday night. Karen and Pat were kind in bringing Grandpa and Mary to the cabin on Saturday.

Doctor Appointment
I had an appointment with my knee doctor yesterday afternoon. It may be that I will not be able to have my other knee replaced until next year. I was planning on late November or December to have it replaced. BUT since I had the heart attack in late May of this year, they don’t want me to be off of Plavix until 9 months or a year after the stent insertion. I will reconfirming this with my heart doctor who I seen next week.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
I overheard a friend telling a story the other day. It involved a fight that broke out between two men. One man said, “The fight started when he hit me back.”

Quote of the Day
The difference between perseverance and obstinacy
is that one comes from a strong will,
and the other from a strong won't.
~Henry Ward Beecher

Joke of the Day

A duck walked into a bakery one day and asked for a pork chop. The baker said, "We aren't a butcher; we don't sell meat here." So the duck left.

The following day the duck went back and asked again.
This time the Baker said, "No, if you come here again I will nail your feet to the floor."

The following day the duck returned and asked, "Have you any nails?"

The baker replied, "No." And the duck said, "Well, I'll have two pork chops then."
