Good morning crew,

I'm writing this yesterday (from your perspective). By this time I have probably just entered Pennsylvania and still have two or three more hours of driving in front of me.

I haven't even started this little odyssey yet and I'm already regretting it. I'm not as patient as I used to be.

20 years ago road trips were an adventure; new sights, new sounds, new experiences, the excitement of meeting whatever challenge the open road throws at me.

Now I look at it as 11 hours locked in a motorized, metal coffin.

Laugh it up,

Joe

I was waiting tables at a country club when an elegantly dressed woman spilled Manhattan clam chowder all over her white linen skirt. She began furiously dabbing at it with a napkin.

Having plenty of experience with getting out food stains, I asked, "Can I bring you some club soda?"

"Young lady," she barked, "I'll be the judge of when I've had enough to drink. Bring me another martini!"

A man with a wooden leg wanted to buy fire insurance for his leg. The first actuary quoted an annual premium of $500, estimating that the leg would burn once in 20 years and the value of the leg is $5,000. The second actuary quoted an annual premium of $50. When the second actuary was asked how he arrived at such a small figure, he replied, "This situation is right here in the fire schedule rating table.

The object is a wooden structure with an upper sprinkler, isn't it?"
