Victoria's Secret Trip

  • This morning, Scott was describing a delicious Attman's corned beef sandwich to Jean. In his state of rapture, he called Jean, "Dude", which made me laugh and registered in my mind as a first.
  • I invited Glenn to join Facebook, and he has racked up more virtual friends in 40 hours than most people attract in a year! For those of you not on Facebook, I will share Glenn's personal info as he listed it. "Political views: Yes Religious views: Yes." Now you know.
  • Gladys and Jack hosted a holiday dinner for their family on Saturday at the Elkridge Furnace Inn and declared it a success.
Here are some pics of last week's shopping spree to Victoria's Secret. If this becomes a new career of Don's (tour guide to the lingerie store), maybe he can offer Jack a job. I hear that Jack is looking for work with good benefits. Thanks to Don for sending the photos.
Don points out the new purchase.

Don in his natural habitat. Could he loook any happier?
(From John S, some simple math)
Once upon a time a man appeared in a village and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each.

The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys there, went out to the forest and started catching them. The man bought thousands at $10 and, as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort. He next announced that he would now buy monkeys at $20 each. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer increased to $25 each and the supply of monkeys became so scarce it was an effort to even find a monkey, let alone catch it!

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50 each! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would buy on his behalf. In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers: "Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has already collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each."

The villagers rounded up all their savings and bought all the monkeys for 700 billion dollars!

They never saw the man or his assistant again, only lots and lots of monkeys!

Now you have a better understanding of how the WALL STREET BAILOUT PLAN WILL WORK !!!! It doesn't get much clearer than this.................
