Today's Narrative

Today we traveled from Mount Sterling, KY to Louisville, KY.

I had an oil and filter change for breakfast this morning. Kinda different :) But the guys at Wal*Mart did a great job.

An easy day today. Not many miles.

The trip will be on pause for a few days while we visit with friends in Louisville. I'm not sure when we'll hit the road again. Maybe next Mon or Tues.

The drive today was beautiful. Traveling through the horse farm area of Kentucky is always a treat. Very pretty.

Thought For The Day

Another reason you should not mess with a child...

A Kindergarten teacher was walking around her classrom, observing her students who were drawing. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.

The girl replied, "I'm drawing God."

The teacher paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like."

Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, "They will in a minute."

Joke Of The Day

From Ken and Rose, wonderful people I met in the Wal*Mart parking lot in Great Falls, MT:

A family took their frail, elderly mother to a nursing home and left her, hoping she would be well cared for. The next morning, the nurses bathed her, fed her a tasty breakfast, and set her in a chair at a window overlooking a lovely flower garden.

She seemed okay, but after a while she slowly started to tilt sideways in her chair. Two attentive nurses immediately rushed up to catch her and straighten her up. Again she seemed okay, but after a while she slowly started to tilt over to her other side. The nurses rushed back and once more brought her back upright. This went on all morning.

Later, the family arrived to see how the old woman was adjusting to her new home.

"So Ma, how is it here? Are they treating you all right?"

"It's pretty nice," she replied. "Except they won't let me fart."
