Teacher:  How old is your father?

Kid:        He is 6 years

Teacher:  What? How is it possible?

Kid:        He became father only when I was born.

A father passing by his son's bedroom, was astonished to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, "Dad." With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter, with trembling hands...

"Dear, Dad. It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mum and you.

I've been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her because of her piercings, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes, and because she is so much older than I am.

But it's not only the passion, Dad. She's pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods, and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.

Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone. We'll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with the other people in the commune, for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want.

In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it!

Don't worry, Dad. I'm 15, and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit, so you can get to know your many grandchildren.

Love, your son, Joshua.

P.S. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Jason's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the school report that's on the kitchen table. Call when it is safe for me to come home!

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I looked at the calendar wrong and I don't have to be at work until 10 this morning.  I slept better last night than I have in a while.  Maybe, with God's help, today will be a good day!

I got some errands done yesterday and fixed some little stuff around the house and I finished pulling the weeds around the Rose of Sharon bushes.  Now I'm ready for the flowers!

Enjoy your day, Everyfriend!

Amy have a nice "day out"!

Hi Everyone.  Another beautiful and sunny morning.  We are expecting to get into the low 90's this afternoon.  Yesterday we had a heat index of 105.  The housekeeper is due here this morning.  After she arrives we will head to Costco for a few items.  Pat is up and dressed and wants to go with me today.  I just hope the riding carts are available. 

Here is the latest on Pat from her sister Judy: "Well Pat my dear sister is home from hospital at last.  She went home with a bad case of pink eye, however she has medication for that and will be home free soon.  Now for physio to help her get mobile!"

Gloria, those fires from Canada must have driven some of the birds South to your area.  Glad you are able to sleep late. 

Shirley, you are dry if your rain gauge is shrinking.  I will have to remember that for future use.  Sorry you didn't get to go to the Apple Farm restaurant.  They always had little cups of cider you could drink as you waited for your table, which you usually had to do.  One of our trips to Kansas City we wanted to go back and eat there but it had closed by that time.  I bet your son is a bit concerned about you using a chain saw. 

Callie, glad to see the storms missed you but still gave you a brief downpour.  We were also going to the Apple Orchard Restaurant during the 1970's.  Of course, money was tight so had to limit our visits but good for special occasions.  I have also been to the Starlight Theater in Swope Park a few times.  Glad you enjoy the bridge playing.  We used to play but it now has been a good many years and I wouldn't even attempt to do it as my partner would probably be very upset with my playing.  I always just played for fun and it was never serious.  Do you all play party bridge or duplicate? 

deAngel, I didn't see any of the golf match yesterday other than a brief bit on the Fox News Channel talking about it.  By the time I looked for it on the Golf Channel or Fox Sports last evening the round must have been over.  I will certainly be watching some of it tomorrow and Sunday afternoons.  Interesting ties you have to that golf course. I understand the course they are using is pretty tough and a challenge even to the best golfers.  It sounds like you scared that poor little mouse.  :)

Mary Ann, watching the women pros play golf can be just as entertaining as the men.  Unfortunately they don't seem to have the prize money there that the men do in their tournaments. 

Amy, glad to see you got your power back on before expected.  There were some places around her that had some golf ball size hail earlier this week.  We sure don't need that.  Glad you didn't get any of the hail that was close by your area.  When Pat hasn't been out for several days, if she feels up to it she likes to get out even if it is only to go eat. 

Jane, glad you got your weeds pulled around your Rose of Sharon.  Now if it would just stay that way. Nice to see you slept well last night.  That will probably make your lines at the cash register seem a little shorter.   

June, I think you are probably right that as we age we tend to want to sleep more.  The fellow I take to coffee is 86 years old and he can drop off to sleep in a moment.  My mother had narcolepsy and when she sat down to read the paper or just to rest she would go to sleep.  Her brother had the same condition.  Fortunately, neither my sister nor I inherited it from her. 

Lloyd, it sounds like you heat has been a lot like ours as it is just plain hot. 

Bubble, another beautiful graphic and cute jokes.  Thanks for starting us on another week.   

Sandy, I hope you also enjoy a good day.  Are you still having comfortable temperatures?

CALLIE, I forgot to mention that I talked to my granddaughter who lives in Jenks, OK (with my brand new GGranddaughter) and they didn't have any bad weather.  She had just been on the phone with her MIL who lives in Tulsa...where Ali's husband also works and they experienced NO bad weather.  I wonder where it was?

Gotta run!  I'm due in at 10.  Have a wonderful day Everyfriend!

Good Morning Everyone
from the cool and pleasant rocky coast
of Maine.   

Fortunately,  (for me) our temperatures
are holding in the mid 70's...  sometimes
Sunny or over cast with a little rain.   
June is usually very pleasant here
in Maine...    I love it. 

All  is well with me, except,  I think that
I need my cataracts
taken care of...  things seem to be
getting blurrier and blurrier.. 

Have a good day,  Everyone!!

Good morning everyone,58° and raining. I woke earlier this morning, am dressed already because today I have the NP from the company that sends the CNAs. She will be here at 10:30. Not 1 day just for me this week, very tiresome.

SHIRLEY  have no idea where the smoke came from. She never  said what direction it was coming from but it was sunrise so must have been from the east? Last night when I went to bed it dawned on me that it was Flag Day. I did not see anything about it on the TV nor anyone putting out flags.

GLORIA de  like you I would scream if I saw a mouse in here. Then a mouse is better than a rat. If I saw one of those I would be out of here as fast as I could move.

AMY  the las t job I had my boss was giving me more and more work and then wondered why something wasn't finished. Told him I still could not find that button. He asked what button. Told him I could not find the one that turned me into a robot that could get the work out faster. 2 days later I got someone to help me. Glad I spoke up to him because I never would have had help.

JANE  I had heard long ago to use a can of hairspray on a pesty fly and it stiffens their wings and the fall and the it  is a wack and the fly
hedoublell. I tried it, the can in one hand and the swatter in the other. Guess one hand was not fast enough, never worked for me.

BUBBLE  thanks for the new book to write in. Love your graphic with all the flags showing. Love the joke wih the 6 year old. Weill have to send that to my brandson who has an almost 3 year old who is already too darn smart.

Almost 11 and I know this NP is always right on time.
Hello to everyone I have not got to yet this morning

Good Morning, Everyfriend,

Janie,  didn't think about your connections to the Tulsa area.   I was speaking of that area "in general".  Also probably wasn't paying that much attention as weather gurus were doing their usual babble about the weather...and we weren't having any to talk about.

Larry,  definitely party Bridge!  Everyone plays Good Bridge but we like to talk too much to obey all the rules and regulations of Duplicate.  I get very annoyed when someone playing party Bridge tries to use some of the duplicate conventions.
Yes,  Apple Orchard was definitely a special treat, as was the Starlight Theater.   

I have been informed that the Dad's Day Dinner will be at my house - mostly because Miss Emily is coming home for the weekend and can go more easily go on from here.   Her Dad is doing ribs and chicken in his new smoker (early Dad's Day gift).  My assignment is baked beans and pasta salad.  Will do the beans in the slow cooker so won't have to have the oven on.

Off to the grocery store....

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.

Good afternoon. pleasant temperature, and sun is out

Larry there is more talk about traffic and high scores then anything else,. I have a bet the winning score will be around 5 Wind was tough yesterday

Thanks Bubble for our new start, and funny story.

Amy, glad you got your power on.  Yesterday , got a call from management that the water would be off.  Walked around to the sink to draw some water and it was already off :tickedoff:

Gloria, I did not see anything here saying it was Flag Day, but nearly everyone on the circle had their flag out.  I know you are enjoying this weather.  Went to DD yesterday and asked about lemon doughnuts and she said they do not make them anymore. I ask for 2 powder sugar and 2 chocolate, got home just had the sugar ones, of course it was the chocolate ones tha t I like

A Good Friday afternoon HELLO to EVERYFRIEND. 

Thank you, BUBBLE, for our nice new Soda Shoppe. 

I have been out pruning the flowers and it sure is hot out there.  Earlier when I was out it was just beautiful and I should have done my work then! It just started to cloud up and we are to get a few drops of rain.....sadly we need a LOT of rain to help with all the forest fires and the smoke in our air.  The smoke was much worse yesterday.  There are so many fires burning it is hard to say where the smoke is really coming from.....probably all of them. 

We had to go for blood work yesterday in preparation for our yearly physicals next week.  Afterward we went to breakfast then decided to play tourists for the day. There is a big kitty cat display in one area of downtown.  It was not completed yet, but many of them were up and I sure enjoyed seeing it. 

We met Brian and he and his dad had a quick brew in one of our many brew pubs around.  It is so much fun to just meet up with him and chat for a bit. 

Not much more to say.  Hope everyone is enjoying a nice day.

Jenny

Okay, Larry & Callie.... and anyone else that visited or lived near Kansas City in the '50s or there abouts.  I couldn't remember the name of the place where we went to dance to Les Brown & others ... was on Main Street about half way between downtown KC and the Plaza..... think it was called the PlaMor......Anyone ever go there?  I remember at least 2 trips but can't remember who the 2nd Big Band we danced to.  We were lucky being between KC and St.Louis and had Stan Kenton, Tommy Dorsey & others do a one night gig at our local "Convention Center" where we also held major dances until we finally got a new gym built that could be used for all type dinners & dances.  Callie, Woodie Herman was at the college in Warrensburg when Cas was going there.... and he had Gene Krupa on drums.... such good music! Poor Cas could not hear the beat of music, he tried & tried but it wasn't there. I'd say, "can't you hear that?" but he didn't. My body still just goes into motion when that old music comes on.   :thumbup:

Shirley,  we were living in Leadville when we spent time in Warrensburg - with 2 kids - living in a campus apartment house.  Not many trips into K.C.
There was a family from PA there at the same time for the same reason - also with kids.  She asked if we were going home for the short semester break.  When I told her how long it would take to drive from W-burg to Leadville, she said, "But you only have to go across Kansas!"  ;D
They had come across 7 states from PA to MO!!

I remember Marge and Gower Champion (the dancers) performing at OU when I was a student (1955-ish)  Harry Belafonte "opened" for them.  Nobody knew who he was!!!!

Good morning everyone...

Laundry will soon be blowing on the line and then we are off to see the sister in law for her birthday.

Yesterday was a great day, we saw a wild turkey hen, a doe with her fawn, fawn was having his/her breakfast and momma was washing fawn....so cute!

Jane, loved the photo of Emma!! Radishes are now coming up and I shall try your fried radish and let you know how I like them.


Better get to work,

Enjoy your day everyone..

Hi Everyone.  It is another beautiful Saturday morning here in South Carolina.  Last evening we had a very nice 20 minute or so shower.  There were more storms in the area but fortunately we only got some lightning, thunder and rain.  Again today it will get into the lower 90's.  The heat here yesterday was very oppressive as the humidity was high and probably will be again today.  I do have to get out to do a little shopping at Aldi's and will likely attend a meeting this morning before doing the shopping.  I plan on watching the last 2 or 3 hours of the third round of the golf tournament.  Pat is going to fix a roast in the Instant Pot so we will be having a tasty dinner tonight.

Sandy, I couldn't believe what a difference in my sight when I had my cataracts removed.  After having to wear glasses for over 60 years it is nice not to need them most of the time as just need them for close reading or very small print.  If my arms were longer probably wouldn't need them at all. 

Gloria, I hope your appointment with the NP went well yesterday.  Having grown up on a farm seeing mice and even rats was not uncommon around the barn where we stored grain for the cattle.  I still don't like them but not afraid of them.  My great grandchildren recently got a white rat as a pet, which would not be my cup of tea.  It seems that employees are being expected to take on more and more work.  However, only so much can be done in a given day. 

Callie, I could still do the bidding in Bridge but have forgotten some of the few conventions I at one time knew.  My wife and I usually played as partners unless we were playing in a group where we played 4 hands and then rotated to another table and another partner for the next 4 hands.  I never had anyone get angry at me for a misplay.  I hope you all have a great Dad's Day Dinner at your house.  Our son is working on Sunday so it will just be Pat and I.  I consider all he does for us as a great gift throughout the year and there is nothing that I need as a gift and he really can't afford one anyway.  I remember Marge and Gower Champion.  Later Gower Champion had a successful career doing choreography for Broadway Shows, if I remember correctly.

Jane, that Emma is a beautiful great grandchild for you.  I look forward to seeing more pictures.  Bubble thanks for posting them for her. 

Amy, I hope you have an equally nice day enjoying the birthday party.  I don't really see any wildlife where I live, except birds, although sure it is all around us. 

deAngel, I was shocked when I looked at the leaders at the tournament after the second round and only one player under par.  Dustin Johnson seems to be on a roll of top-notch golf as he won last week and well on his way to another win this week.  A lot of the big names didn't even make the cut for the weekend.  Is wind normal for that course?  I hope they didn't keep your water off too long.  I haven't been to a Dunkin Donuts since we moved.  Here the preferred chain seems to be Krispy Kreme donuts.  I have never liked the powered sugar donuts as prefer the raised glazed type or the pastries with a filling.  Apple fritters is one of my favorites.  I was tempted to get a dozen of them at Costco yesterday but passed up the temptation. 

Jenny, it would be great if the droughts in the West would end.  They are saying our area is no longer considered to be in a drought.  I bet the kitty cat display was interesting.  Do you use your electric cart for these type of things?  Nice that Brian could join you for a chat. 

Shirley, we lived about 100 miles north of Kansas City and the only time we went there was to visit my mother's family or my dad's cousin and family.  I did a quick search on the Pla Mor ballroom and found this interesting article:  http://www.kchistory.org/week-kansas-city-history/great-indoors .  I am not remembering ever hearing about it. I see it went out of business in 1951, when I would have been only 10 years old.

Good morning everyone. La te again. I was close to the end of a book last night and just had to finish it-at 2am. I don't know about anyone else but I find it har d to get the the best part of a book and put it down to the next day. Supposed to be a good week end BUT humidity goes up on Monday along with the heat and will be into the 90's. Will not go outsice late in the day and the AC sure will be running overtime.

GLORIA de  the same aroud here with the lemon DD. They claim there is no one wanting them anymore. To you and me they are the best ones they made.

SHIRLEY  like you I have danced to some of those big bands. Here in Providence and at the end of the pier at Old Orchard beach in Maine. That was music to enjoy, not like the noise today.

BUBBLE  thanks for the link.

JANE  Emma is adorable. I know how you feel  being so far away from here. When my daughter had my 2 grandsons I went there when they were born. Missed them when I got home but she was so good at sending me pictures all the time. Back then she had to wait for the film to be finished to send the pictures. Now we have computers and digital cameras and smart phones so easier to keep in contact.

LARRY  the NP yesterday was just checking up on well the CNAs do their job and and keep up their records in the folder they have here.

Better get moving. Have a good day.

Good Morning,

Janie,  that is undoubtedly the cutest, sweetest looking baby I've seen since my Grands were that age!!!!   

I found some decent looking fresh green beans at the grocery store yesterday for 99 cents a pound.  Bought a "bag full" and snapped them while I was watching the 10:00 p.m. news last night.
They are now in the slow cooker with some of the trimmings from the Christmas ham that I had saved in the freezer.   
Will switch to baked beans for family first thing in the morning.  I start with canned pork/beans so they won't take as long to be ready.

5 of the 8 bulbs in the strip lighting under my kitchen cupboards had gone out.  I decided I could surely figure out how to take care of that.   Well - it involved:
4 trips to Batteries and Bulbs
1 trip to Home Depot
a mirror
a cell phone camera
a flashlight
and latex gloves
 :dizzy:  but I got it done!   :thumbup:

Projects du Jour are laundry, making pasta salad and making sure I have plates, silverware and napkins for company coming tomorrow.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day

Larry, interesting article about the Pla Mor..... hard to believe it closed in '51, guess I must have gone when I was only 16. I have photos sent from one of the girls (3 couples) that danced to Les Brown & his band of renown... and I'm pretty sure the singer that night was Doris Day. We girls were to stay with my brother & wife "just down the street on the Plaza" while the boys were supposed to get a hotel room. All 6 of us walked to my brother's apartment & they admitted they didn't have a room. We all slept on the floor & I never planned any more trips with that bunch.  We all paid our own way & were dance partners, not really dating, but I thought those guys were irresponsible. 88

It is another hot morning, my son & wife brought their camper all cleaned up to store in my extra garage. I put jacks down & slide out to get the rest of the stuff out of the closets & drawers in mine. Swept out & closed up again, I will fill with gas to be ready to hit the road for any emergency.  I don't plan another trip in this heat but my brother is almost 93 & sister 88, both of their spouses still living so if I need to go, I can. 

My son stopped long enough to connect the new computer to wi-fi............my brain is not ready for touch screen & no mouse.  Not sure why every time I plug my mouse in the curser stops working.  Maybe I need a smarter mouse?  I did have to get a new password to get in, wouldn't take the one I had before so guess I'll have to reprogram those other computers? Still no bookmarks on this one so will work on that. I don't know how to highlight & change colors, size & all so must get a working mouse.  (Think you girls could spare one, Mary Ann & Gloria de???)

Good morning. 

They say rain is on the way and we sure do need it. 

GLORIA de, Carol and I live within walking distance of each other, so if there is any storms or the like, we both get them at the same time.  I am sure glad you have your water back on.  Sure would have been nice if you could have had enough warning to get some water before they shut it off! 

LARRY, I did ride my electric cart when we were downtown.  It is wonderful to be able to get around with ease.  I would never be able to get around like that with out the cart.  I am thankful to have it.  I use the rollator as much as I can in stores.  When my friend Patti was here and we went clothing shopping the other day, having the seat to sit down occasionally was a blessing.  I just need to sit down for a couple of minutes, then I can go again for a bit.

JANE, your little Emma is precious.  Thank you Bubble for posting the picture for us to see her. 

AMY, we have quite a bit of wild life to view here in our everyday life as well, and it is so enjoyable.  I was standing at the kitchen window yesterday and a small deer went running by.  We used to have three or four of them that would graze here in our yard for hours.  I sure would love to have some of your home grown radishes.

SHIRLEY, how fun to read about the old bands and your memories of the Pla Mor.  Back in the day they used to have a lot of the big bands and singers come play at The Tracadereo at Elitches, a local amusement park.

I wish you all a wonderful day. 

We will be going to our youngest Son Brian’s for dinner tonight to celebrate Father’s Day. Tomorrow they will be with his wife Cathy’s Family.

Jenny

I  can talk to you on this computer but something caused the others to NOT let me login for Seniors.  :tissue: I have tried over & over to get the password that works on this one to work with the others but won't let me see that baby or any photos, or even do a replay on them.  Don't have a mouse to work on this one yet so am at the mercy of technology & can't do all the doctoring to get print larger & bold, etc. Maybe a nap will help, you think?
