Family Birthday Celebration

We Had a Grand Day!
Karen & Pat came up from Knoxville and brought Mary today so we could celebrate three birthdays. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Outback, then back to our house for cake and ice cream. And all the while it started snowing. Here’s some pictures:

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
We were out in the car during the snow. Right now the roads are in good shape, but I wonder what will happen tonight. And I did not realize how cold it was. My car said it was 27 degrees but look at what I saw at the corner gas station. Now that’s cold!

Quote of the Day

Joke of the Day

Mom and the kids had been up in the attic together doing some cleaning. The kids uncovered an old manual typewriter and asked her, "Hey Mom, what's this?"

"Oh, that's an old typewriter," she answered, thinking that would satisfy their curiosity.

"Well what does it do?" they asked.

"I'll show you," she said and returned with a blank piece of paper. She rolled the paper into the typewriter and began striking the keys, leaving black letters of print on the page.

"WOW!" they exclaimed, "that's really cool, but how does it work like that? Where do you plug it in?"

"There is no plug," she answered. "It doesn't need a plug."

"Then where do you put the batteries?" they persisted.

"It doesn't need batteries either," she continued.

"Wow! This is so cool!" they exclaimed. "Someone should have invented this a long time ago!"

Happy Birthday to Mary, Beverly and Karen. Glad that you all got together for the celebration. We got up this morning to a big frost and very thick fog. Looked weird.
