It WAS a Beautiful Snow

Yesterday’s Snowfall
The roads are clear now and the mess of the day after a snow fall is upon us. But it was beautiful. Those big flakes were so pretty.

IMG_1016During the snow we received a picture from Lesley showing Kara and Zachary outside and playing in the snow.

I sure wished I could get outside and join them in some sleigh riding or even a playful snowball fight. That would have been fun!

More News!
IMG_1017I now have a granddaughter that is very, very happy and excited. Maybe the  picture will give you a clue.

Do you recognize what she is holding? It looks a lot like a Tennessee Drivers License, but I am pretty sure it is a Tennessee Drivers Learning Permit. She took the test and got the permit today. That’s a happy girl.

Thoughts of the Day

In 1866, Mark Twain said, “No man's life,  liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in  session.” Those words are true today!

It is good for us to remember “Talk is  cheap...except when Congress does it.”

Joke of the Day

    A very thirsty man goes into a bar. As he's sitting down, he hears the man next to him tell the bartender, "I'll have another waterloo."

    The bartender gives the fellow a tall, well-iced drink, then asks the newcomer what he would like to drink.

    Thinking the other man's drink may be a specialty of the house, he says, "I'll have a waterloo, too." The bartender gives him the tall, well-iced drink, and the customer takes a big drink.

    "Hey," he says, "this isn't any good. It tastes just like water!"

    The man next to him looks at the bartender and says, "Well, it is water. Right, Lou?"

It's a good time for your granddaughter to be learning how to drive... when there's snow & it's slippery! If she can drive on that, she'll be good to go! Good for her... and what a sweet picture!!
