The clear blue sky is beautiful today.
I do not have an ex-spouse but maybe I can find someone else's to have a few laughs with, or is that reaching too high?
Pecans have always been a favorite nut- pecan pie, butter pecan ice cream


Other things to consider:
Air Force Reserve Birthday
Children with Alopecia Day
Dictionary Day
National Dolphin Day
National Pecan Day
Pan American Day
Pathologists Assistant Day



Oh, and Happy Birthday to the coal miner's daughter http://www.lorettalynn.com/

Re: Ex-spouses, it would not be polite to kiss and tell, would it?


I like rubber erasers, they come in many shapes and sizes. What did we do before they were invented? Would you believe bread was used?
Joseph Priestley was a man of many ideas and I've been to his mansion The Joseph Priestley House where informative programs are held from time to time. He is credited with discovering oxygen and carbonation, among other things, (leading to what we now call soda) but until today I did not know about the rubber eraser.

Thanks for the interesting facts about erasers!

I recently posted the question in Let's Play, asking if the person below me would sail on the new Titanic. Surely, this one wouldn't sink too. Or, at the least, they would hopefully have enough life boats for everyone.

I can keep secrets very well, so if you want to tell me of your kissing escape, I promise I won't tell.

I'm not a big mushroom lover, but I do eat grilled portabellas sometimes.

Also today:

National Eggs Benedict Day
National Librarian Day
National Stress Awareness Day

I don't like eggs. I always appreciated librarians since I love to read. I'm very much aware of my stress.

We bought a used Ford Mustang years ago and it was a lemon. That was the last used car we ever bought.

The only Ford that I ever owned was an Explorer SUV (which I bought new) and I liked it very much until body cancer became a problem.

A young man was pulled over by the Mississippi State Police for speeding.

The officer stepped out of his patrol car, adjusted his sunglasses, and swaggered up to the young man’s window. “What chew driving so fast for boy? You going to a fahhr? Let me see your license, boy.”

The young man handed over his license. Then the officer noticed that the back seat of the car was full of large knives. The officer said, “Tell me boy, why you got them knives on that there back seat?” The young man replied, “Well sir, I’m a juggler.” The officer spat some tobacco juice and then he said, “A juggler; well you don’t say. Boy, put cha hands on the trunk of yer car; you going to jail!”

The young man pleaded with the officer not to take him to jail. He offered to prove to the officer that he was a juggler by way of demonstration. He said, “You can even hold me at gunpoint while I juggle for you.” The officer reluctantly allowed him to prove his point while he held him at gunpoint.

Two miles down the road at Joe’s Tavern, Billy Bub was drinking it up with Jerry Lee Jones. Billy Bub soon left and got into his old, rusty pickup truck. He proceeded down the road trying his best to stay on the right side. All of a sudden Billy Bub spotted the most unbelievable sight of his life! He drove to the nearest phone booth and dialed the number for Joe’s Tavern and asked for his buddy, Jerry Lee. When Jerry Lee got on the phone, Billy Bub said, “Whatever you do when you leave that tavern, don’t go north on route 109. The state police are giving a sobriety test that nobody can pass!”
