Good morning crew,

I'm having very mixed feelings right now. On the one hand it is Labor Day weekend which means that summer is just about over, and really I hardly had a chance to enjoy it.

On the other hand it is Labor Day weekend which means Frankfort's famous Fall Fest is this weekend, the highlight of which is the pig roast at Old Plank Trail Tavern.

Do I feel excited or depressed? I'm so conflicted right now.

Laugh it up,

Joe

In the British documentary 56 Up, a man shared that he had earned a law degree at Oxford. Then, in his thick English accent, he proudly proclaimed that he was now a "barrister."

My 13-year-old daughter wasn't impressed. "So," she said, "he spent all that effort getting an Oxford law degree, and now he works at Starbucks?"

My wife is a very adventurous cook. "How does this sound?" she called out from the kitchen. "Bonito, surimi, and anchovies in a decadent, silky broth."

"Sounds delicious," I hollered back. "Is that what we're having tonight?"

"No. I'm reading from this packet of cat food."
