Oh look, Chicken Thursday - and happy 79th birthday to my mom!!
I recently returned from 10 days of travelling for two conferences and some family visits. One of the places I flew to was Edmonton, Alberta, a city heavily impacted that day by smoke from wildfires in that province. I took this picture (no filter applied) as we descended to land. Let me tell you, it didn't smell very good in the plane!
An older lady, who lived on the third floor of a boardinghouse, broke her leg. As the doctor put a cast on it, he warned her not to climb any stairs. Several months later, the doctor took off the cast.
"Can I climb stairs now?" asked the little old lady.
"Yes you can," he replied.
"Thank goodness!" she said. "I'm so tired of shinnying up and down that drainpipe!"
I was the new coach of a Little League baseball team and had not yet learned the names of my players.
At our first game, I called each boy by the number on his uniform. When I yelled, "Number 5, your time to bat," Jeffrey came to the plate. When I called for "Number 7," Tyler jumped up. Then I yelled for "Number 1" but no one emerged from the dugout. Again I called for Number 1. Still, no one came forward.
As the umpire looked on, annoyed at this delay of the game, I shouted; "Who's number 1?"
That's when the whole team yelled, "We are, Coach! We are!"
