Today's Narrative
 

Our trip is on pause while we (well, me, mostly; the navigator is lazy) help a friend move into a new home. I expect we'll be back on the road Tues, May 10.

But, wait! To make up for this, there are three Jokes Of The Day below.

 
Today's Pictures

No pix today. I thought about posting pix of a huge Budget rental truck, sweating people and aching backs, but decided not to.

 
Today's Stats
 

No stats either.

Joke Of The Day
 

From June in North Augusta, SC:

An elderly Jewish woman from Brooklyn decided to prepare her will.

She told her rabbi she had two final requests. First, she wanted to be cremated, and second, she wanted her ashes scattered over a Wal*Mart store.

"Wal*Mart!" the rabbi exclaimed. "Why Wal*Mart?"

"Then I'll be sure my daughters visit me twice a week"

Bonus Joke Of The Day #1:

The Mechanic

A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a Harley motorcycle when he spotted a well-known heart surgeon in his shop.

The surgeon was there waiting for the service manager to come take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey Doc, can I ask you a question?"

The surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new.

"So, how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same work?"

The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over, and whispered to the mechanic, "Try doing it with the engine running!"

Bonus Joke Of The Day #2:

From Denise in IN:

Some thoughts on Exercising:

Walking can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $5000 per month.

My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was 60. Now she's 97 years old and we don't know where the hell she is.

The only reason I would take up exercising is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.

I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there.

I have to exercise early in the morning before my brain figures out what I'm doing.

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

I have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.

The advantage of exercising every day is that you die healthier.

If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.

And last but not least: I don't exercise because it makes the beer slosh out of the mug.
