Good morning crew,

This weekend the wife and I started the most difficult and stressful part of our trip preparations; shopping.

I am the kind of person who only buys things as he needs them, and since we will probably be doing a good bit of walking on this little adventure I wanted a good, comfortable pair of walking shoes that are a little sturdier and will fit in more places than gym shoes. So I asked the wife to take me to one of her favorite stores in the world, The Shoe Warehouse.

And warehouse it is. It is probably 4,000 square feet of nothing but shoes. Men's shoes, women's shoes, athletic shoes, dress shoes, work shoes, you get the idea...shoes.

Now, if there is anything worse than not finding a pair of shoes you like, it is finding too many. Not only did I find a great pair of walking shoes that look kind of like a cross between a boot and a gym shoe, but I also found a great pair of cross-trainers and a pair of casual loafers that fit so well I just couldn't let them go.

So I go in to buy one stupid pair of shoes and I come out with three.

Not to be out-done, the wife picked up a couple pair for herself. She didn't need them, but I think she felt like she was being left out.

Laugh it up,

Joe

Suspecting he had a serious medical condition, I nagged my husband until he agreed to see a doctor. Once there, he was handed a mountain of forms to fill out.

Next to "Reason for visit?" he wrote, "My wife made me."




*-------------- Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes --------------*

Nancy was Catholic, but her fiance, Chris, was not. Since my friends were planning to be married in the Catholic Church, Chris made sure to listen carefully throughout their prenuptial sessions. At one meeting the priest turned to Chris and told him, "Since you are not Catholic, we shall have the ceremony without Eucharist."

Later that day, Chris was noticeably upset, so Nancy asked what was wrong. "I don't understand," he said. "How can we have the ceremony without me?"
