Recent conversation with Brenda while recuperating in hospital:

Me: Hey, wanna hear a joke I made up? I'm gonna tell my RN the next visit she makes.

Brenda: Of course.

Me: A stethoscope walks into a bar and the bartender starts, "Did you hear the one about..." (Stethoscope interrupting) Yes!

Brenda: (laughing) That's pretty good.

I can't recall the last time Brenda actually endorsed an idiotic joke I either thought of or merely thought funny. I might be on my deathbed and she's comforting me the best she knows how.

We're glad you're recovering. :-)

Oprah Is Immortal

I was talking to Brenda about weight recently - about how hers is creeping up and mine is creeping down. I ran across this article afterwards and showed it to her as a peace offering (man that skillet to the skull really hurts!) Thigh size has been connected to a predilection for heart disease. Go »

So, you're an executive pothead sitting around the confernce room table with all the stoner VP's. The discussion centers on marketing a product that, while overtly illegal, has such an upside in monopolizing the market and growth potential. And whose turn is it to change the bong water, anyway?

How Old Is Too Old For Santa Claus?

My daughter Lauren wrote a letter to Santa in which she asked him for nothing - just a letter to say what a cool guy she thinks he is. It has a few misspellings and a grammar error or two and it's not written with the greatest penmanship. And it's completely adorable. Go »
