 Today's Narrative 

Today we traveled from Fayetteville, NC to Fredricksburg, VA.

Today was a traveling day on I 95. I've just finished eating some chicken fingers and mac & cheese from the Wal*Mart deli. Yummy! What do you mean, "Did I share with the Navigator?" Of course I did :)

We'll be camping in the Wally World parking lot tonight. Let's see... there's a fifth wheel rig at 3 o'clock, a Class B motorhome at 5 o'clock, a USA Truck 18 wheeler at 6 o'clock, a pickup camper at 8 o'clock and another fifth wheel (with two slide outs, fancy!) at 10 o'clock. We're surrounded by camping buddies!

 Thought For The Day 

"Airplanes are interesting toys, but of no military value" ~ Ferdinand Foch, French War College, 1911
 Joke Of The Day 

From: Sue in KY:

A Southern Baptist minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon. Four worms were placed into four separate jars.

The first worm was put into a jar of alcohol.

The second worm was put into a jar of cigarette smoke.

The third worm was put into a jar of chocolate syrup.

The fourth worm was put into a jar of good clean soil.

At the conclusion of the Sermon, the Minister reported the following results:

The first worm in alcohol - Dead.

The second worm in cigarette smoke - Dead.

Third worm in chocolate syrup - Dead.

Fourth worm in good clean soil - Alive.

So the Minister asked the congregation - What can you learn from this demonstration?

A little old woman in the back quickly raised her hand and said, "As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!"

Don't you just love little old ladies????

BONUS JOKE:

From TB in AZ:

The Rev. Billy Graham had just finished a tour of the Florida East Coast and was taking a limousine to the airport. Having never driven a limo, he asked the chauffeur if he could drive for a while.

Well, the chauffeur didn't feel like he had much of a choice, so he got in the back of the limo and Billy took the wheel. He turned onto I-95 and accelerated to about 90 MPH.

WHAM! The blue lights of the State Highway Patrol flashed in his rearview mirror. The Reverend pulled over and a trooper came to his window.

When the trooper saw that the driver was Billy Graham, he said, "Just a moment, please, I need to call in." The trooper radioed in and asked for the chief. He said, "I have a REALLY important person pulled over and I need to know what to do."

The chief replied, "Who is it, not Ted Kennedy again?"

The trooper said, "No, even more important."

"It isn't Governor Jeb Bush, is it?" asked the chief.

"No, even more important," replied the trooper.

"It isn't President George Bush, is it?"

"No," replied the trooper, "even more important."

"Well, WHO in the WORLD is it?!" screamed the chief.

The trooper responded, "I don't know for sure but I think it might be Jesus, because his chauffeur is Billy Graham!"
