Good morning crew,

When you have house-quests who are on vacation, you, as the host, are kind of on vacation too.

So this entire week I have been coming home to barbecues and parties. I admit it has been a little exhausting.

But the thing about house guests is that eventually they go home. Tonight the wife and I will have our first night alone in a week. And you know what that means. With any luck we'll be asleep by 9:30.

Laugh it up,

Joe

"Delay, delay," he corrected me. "We don't use that other phrase."

A British friend of mine once found himself at a dinner party sitting next to an attractive American woman. The conversation turned to cricket, and the woman asked my friend to explain the game.

He agreed and embarked on a lengthy explanation of the mysteries of "silly mid-on," "fine-leg," "googly," "chinaman" and the like.

At the end he sat back, exhausted. The woman looked at him, shaking her head in wonderment, "That really is remarkable. And to think they do it all on horseback."
