Yesterday we attended a birthday party at Happy Joes’ in Dubuque, Iowa. The kids had a great time playing games and visiting with their cousins. We ate pizza and in typical Happy Joes’ fashion, the birthday boy was asked to stand up and the entire restaurant sang Happy Birthday. The candles were blown out and delicious cake was served. The birthday boy opened his gifts; he received some clothes, movies and a huge model of a ship to put together. He was delighted. The only thing that sets this party apart from other birthday parties that we have attended is that this party was for my father-in-law who will turn 64 on Monday.
He chose Happy Joes for his party destination not because he loves pizza and not because he likes an entire restaurant singing to him. He chose it because he knew it would be a place that the kids would enjoy and they did, we all did. So here’s to staying young at heart and celebrating in style with your grandchildren. Happy Birthday to you “Big T” and I hope you never grow up!
It disgusts me that I continue to receive mail from the AARP or American Association for Retired Persons. You can’t even join unless you are over 50 which is still seven years away for me. They keep sending membership applications and telling me reasons why I should join. What a slap in the wrinkly face. Who are these people and why do they think I’m over 50? Leave me alone AARP, I don’t want to join your club!
Joke of the Day
A panda bear walks into a bar and orders a ham sandwich. The waiter brings him the sandwich. The panda bear eats it, pulls out a pistol, kills the waiter, and gets up and starts to walk out. The bartender yells for him to stop. The panda bear asks, "What do you want?" The bartender replies, "First you come in here, order food, kill my waiter, then try to go without
paying for your food." The panda bear turns around and says, "Hey! I'm a Panda. Look it up!" The bartender goes into the back room and Google’s panda bear. The result was: Panda: a bear-like marsupial originating in Asian regions, it is known largely for its stark black and white coloring. Eats shoots and
British Words of the Day - John Thomas
It sounds like a harmless name but the meaning is deep. A John Thomas to our British friends is a penis. In a sentence it might go something like this: And then my mum (mom) screamed as the bloke (man) flashed his John Thomas (penis) and then ran away. For this reason you won’t find many people
named John Thomas in the UK.
Have a good day passengers!
