Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

Moon and Rain

Wednesday, October 27, 2004

Tonight was a total eclipse of the moon. Last week I read about it
on the net, and sent a link to my sweet wife. I had choir practice
tonight just before it started, so I couldn’t see it, but my sweet
wife remembered. She got the kids all ready to go out and see it.
It’s getting cold here so she put on their jackets, explained what
an eclipse was, and headed out the front door. Only to get drenched
with rain. They couldn’t see a thing.

I guess it isn’t that bad because we’ve had a [* long period of
abnormally low rainfall] for the past 7 years, so rain is a good

[*Ok, last time I mentioned our ‘lack of rain’ problem in an issue,
I creatively came up with “draught” not “drought”. (British
draft/beer not lack of rainfall). I seem to remember you readers
having a good chuckle over that one, so I haven’t mentioned it
again. But the rains are here so I don’t have to worry any more
about spelling, right?]

Enjoy today’s Jokes!

Now the Cardinals are down 3 - 0 [Now it’s 4-0] and I'm cheering
for the Red Sox cuz I used to live in Boston..... Actually it's a
good thing that the Cards beat the Astros, because I wouldn't have
known who to cheer for if it was Sox vs Astros!

[So my world traveling sister, who would you have cheered for if
the Astros and Sox were playing, ‘eh? Someday my grandchildren’s
children will see the Cubs in the World Series!]

hey! don't forget the best part of carving a pumpkin is.....
