First Weekend of Autumn

Purple bagels have returned to Sam's in honor of the Ravens, available on the weekends. Or as Jean remarked on Friday, today is "wear purple to work day" so be sure to wear purple next Thursday. She always confuses me.......

I was having a coffee with my co-worker, a very respected lady, when Doug S. asked if we were childhood sweethearts! Not that there's anything wrong with that, but we have both been married for 20+ years to members of the opposite sex. Doug turned red and stuttered that it was a Freudian slip......he confuses me too! Actually, I think he confuses himself. Work on having aplomb, Doug.

A typical joke overheard at Sam's from Bill W.'s table.......
An old sailor was going to celebrate his birthday. He put on his uniform, and after a nice meal paid to spend some time with a lady of the evening. Afterward, he asked her how the evening had been.
"Well, she said, I'll put it into terms you can understand. I rated you three knots. It was not hard, it was not in, and you are not getting your money back".

In other news, Don was away in Hershey for the weekend to celebrate his birthday. Happy Birthday, Don! Needless to say, it was peaceful and quiet for a change.

Jean and Paul will be away this week celebrating their 53rd wedding anniversary. They will be attending the reunion for Paul's Navy shipmates. Congratulations!

Patty's mother has double pneumonia and is currently in managed care at Gilchrest Hospice. Patty, your family is in our prayers. You know where to reach us if you need anything.
