That's it! I've had it with you guys. I can't take it any more. Does it sound like I need a vacation? Last year, it seems that we were away more than we were home. But, this year, it's just been home, home, home. To say that I need a break would top The Best Jokes of '08 List. I do think that the working half of the home team could use some time off. So, we're saddlin' up and headin' into the sunset (That's west for those of you in the Midwest where there hasn't been a lot of sun lately.) Hopefully I will encounter some of the same kind of humorous events that occurred on past vacations. There have been some real Laugh Out Loud ones. Like the one at a campground Up North when a woman stepped out of her camper with a bed pan (bucket) and the stairs collapsed under her. Stuff flew in all directions and, even though she wasn't aware of me watching, she straightened herself up and acted like nothing happened or that was her normal way of leaving the trailer. Or, at a campground in South Dakota where I got the crap scared out of me by a renegade gang of wild turkeys, , as I enjoyed my morning coffee. (I think they were speaking Arabic). This vacation won't be the "camping out" type although we will probably encounter a great deal of wild life. Our campsite will be Las Vegas and our campgrounds will be Nevada, Arizona and Utah. I imagine that my first couple of blogs when we return will be written in echo as the trip will take us to the Big Grand Hole (BGH) in Arizona and another Not Quite as Big Hole (NQBH) in Utah. Get ready for some cool pictures, tall tales and hopefully, a few laughs.
I'm a retired commercial artist originally from Chicago now living in Southwest Wisconsin. I spent the better part of fifty years in advertising and related industries.I tend to find humor in most things I encounter so I thought it might brighten up some rather dull boring days if I shared "what made me laugh" that day. Please feel free to join in by sharing things that made you laugh. Only limitation is that the comments are "G"r rated. I have ten grandchildren and some of them can read pretty well. (Especially the ones in college)
