Warm weather brings entertainment


Hello again. I have had a full week. Hope yours was good.

The center had a trip to Camp Nathaniel on Thursday. I didn’t get to go, had a doctor’s appointment.

Some of the ladies went on a church trip. They were going to Tennessee for a women’s conference. Sure hope they had a great time.

With warm weather here, plan on taking advantage of all the local entertainment. There will be Seed Time and festivals. Also, there is usually a day for families over on Cumberland River. They have a wonderful place where Blair Lake was.

Watch the paper for notices of times and places. I will try to let you know in my column, too. Most of these places are great for the kids and grandkids.

Not much going on with me, but next week should be better.

Since I like to smile, I hope you will smile at this: Drink and drive in Georgia.

A Georgia State Trooper pulled a car over on I-95 about two miles south of the Georgia/South Carolina state line. When the trooper asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver answered that he was a magician and a juggler and he was on his way to Savannah to do a show that night at the Shrine Circus and didn’t want to be late.

The trooper told the driver he was fascinated by juggling, and if the driver would do a little juggling for him that he wouldn’t give him a ticket. The driver told the trooper that he had sent all of his equipment on ahead and didn’t have anything to juggle.

The trooper told him he had some flares in the trunk of his patrol car and asked if he could juggle them. The juggler stated that he could, so the trooper got three flares, lit them and handed them to the juggler.

While the man was doing his juggling act, a car pulled in behind the patrol car, a drunk good old boy from South Carolina got out and watched the performance briefly, then went over to the patrol car, opened the rear door and got in.

The trooper observed him doing this and went over to the patrol car, opened the door and asked the drunk what he thought he was doing. The drunk replied, “You might as well take me to jail, ‘cause there’s no way I can pass that test.”

Have a good week and hug someone. I’m sure I will.
