 Today's Narrative 

Today we spent the day in Delray Beach, FL

Got up about 10am. I had planned to drive north to my brother's, but Ralph and I got to talking again and time flew.

We left his place in the afternoon and drove to my brother's.

We'll be at my brother's tomorrow, Thu, Dec 24 and Sat, Dec 25. On Sun, Dec 26, we'll drive back to Aiken.

 Joke Of The Day 

The Inheritance

Because he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly, widower father died, Charles decided he needed a woman to enjoy it with.

Going to a singles bar, he spotted a woman whose beauty took his breath away.

"I'm just an ordinary man," he said, walking up to her, "but in just a week or two, my widowed father will die and I'll inherit 20 million dollars and would like to have someone to share it with."

The woman gladly went home with him.

Men will never learn...

The next day she became his stepmother.
