It’s been a tough week leading up to a tough meeting last night. Today (no more or less that the last few weeks), I’m feeling very flat and more than a little brain-dead. It was great to see the sun shining first thing this morning, but as the day has dragged on, the clouds have drifted in. It even snowed for awhile. I always find it comforting somehow… when the weather matches your mood. But I don’t want to drone on in my melancholy spirit…and since I am so brain-dead, I’m just going to pull out a good joke from an unknown source. Maybe someone else needs a good laugh too?

Can you believe I found a 3″ binder in my closet, stuffed full of stories, jokes, poems, and pictures…from the sublime to the ridiculous? I compiled it years ago but don’t ask me why… I really can’t remember! Have a good weekend and Remember: Keep smiling!…it makes people wonder what you are up to!
