Today, we began the day slowly. Well, that is to say, we left to go golfing pretty late (for us), around 11/11:30 a.m. or so. We did a round of 9 holes, then went home for lunch. Continue reading
Today we went golfing! I didn’t do so badly, but had a couple rotten holes and ended with a 43….. still not a bad score if it mattered to me haha 😉
What was neat though were the little bonuses on the course: there was a roseate spoonbill hangin out on Hole 6, a tree with a large, active bees’ nest, and that tree itself was neat because it had some sort of hanging tubers that had lumps that appeared to open into a flower….. very very strange. Wow! Just out of curiosity (and not expecting such a quick result), I did a quick search for “tropical tree”, went to the first site, and guessed at a name that might fit — sausage tree. http://mgonline.com/Sausage_Tree.html Would you believe it? I think it may have actually been that kind of tree! Ahh, the internet is a wonderful thing.
After golfing, we went to our friends’ place for a pizza lunch. Very tasty, very fun. I had a tickle in my throat that I couldn’t get rid of though, so I was going nuts trying not to cough every two seconds. A couple funny jokes were told, let me see if I can remember any.
Two men got up to the gates of Heaven and were addressed by Saint Peter. Saint Peter asked the first man, dressed in a leather jacket, shades, and slicked back hair, “…..and who are you?” The man replied, “I’m Derek Smith, and I’ve been a pilot for 31 years.” Saint Peter looks at his list, exclaims, “Ah! There you are,” and gives him a golden staff, a silk robe, and lets him through the gates. The second man walks up to Saint Peter and is also asked who he is, to which he replies, “I’m John Brown, and I’ve been a priest for 31 years.” Saint Peter consults his list, exclaims, “Ah! There you are,” and gives him a wooden staff, and a cotton robe. The man pauses a moment, then asks, “Why, Saint Peter, I can’t help but notice a discrepancy here….. that man was a pilot and got a golden staff and a silk robe, while I was a priest and only got a wooden staff and a cotton robe!” Saint Peter replies, “Ah, yes. Well, here in Heaven, we go by results. You were a priest, and have made people fall asleep for 31 years, but he was a pilot and made people pray!”
hee hee. 🙂
