Good morning crew,

We made it, folks. Somewhere on the order of 12,000 miles round trip and I'm right back where I started.

To be perfectly honest, we were back Tuesday, but I took Wednesday off to relax and rest up after the trip. And by relax I mean grocery shop, do 4 loads of laundry and mow the lawn.

But the adventure was not without consequences. The poor wife has been suffering some kind of terrible upper respiratory infection for about a week now, so I think tonight it is going to be steam and hot tea, for her anyway.

I'm still on 'beer at noon' time.

Laugh it up,

The difference between 'Men' and 'Guys'

Guys: are not sure what they want to be doing later tonight.

Men: wear ties with stripes, shirts with buttons, and shoes with laces.
Guys: wear high school T-shirts they've actually owned since high school.

Men: balance their checkbooks.
Guys: balance their loans so that they never hit up the same buddy twice in a row.

Men: claim to be feminist but still insist on opening doors, driving, and paying for dinner.
Guys: claim to be feminists so they can let YOU open doors, drive, and pay for dinner.

Men: order wine based on more than the price.
Guys: bring their own beer.

College meals are generally unpopular with those who have to eat them, and sometimes with good reason.

"What kind of pie do you call this?" asked one student indignantly.

"What's it taste like?" asked the cook.


"Then it's apple pie. The plum pie tastes like soap."
