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.

Emergency Call from home!

Wednesday, January 19, 2005

After our choir director died last year, some of the members wanted
to keep things going. So tonight we started up another choir with
members of the old group, and about a dozen members from the new
director’s group. We sounded pretty good, but our numbers are
pretty low. Anyway, my sweet wife and I talked it over, and since
she’s got a great voice, and the kids are ~just~ about old enough
not to burn the house down while we’re away, I took her along for
our first practice. We were still a bit apprehensive about leaving
them alone, but figured we should give it a shot anyway. But in the
middle of practice she stood up, put a finger in one ear, and the
cell phone in the other. I thought, uh oh... what’s going on. Did
someone beat someone else up? Did they actually start the house on
fire, or what? She walked out in the hall, and stayed for what
seemed forever. When she came back, I walked over to her and asked
what was wrong. She smiled and said, “Son #2 called and wanted to
let me know that he pulled 2 teeth out tonight.”

Oh, ok. I wanted to ask who punched him in the mouth to loosen
them, but I didn’t.

The rest of the night was uneventful. Some good talent, but it’ll
take some time to get used to a different director.

Enjoy today’s Jokes!

Reader Comment Section:

This week was Martin Luther King's birthday, not President's Day.
PD comes in February, around the 20 somethingth. That's because a
lot of the President's birthdays are in February. (Gives a little
boost to astrology).
Love, Mom
P.S. Got an e-mail from Uncle Frank today. The monkey-leopard
joke was his all time favorite.

Uh ... MLK Day? Either that, or you guys in Utah have a different
calendar than we do in Oregon.
~Jerry the Geek

President's Day... Martin Luther King Day... What's the difference,
eh? Just go to Canada and don't worry about celebrating either....
~Our Missing Jr. Jokester, Justin

Marty, Never missing a opportunity to correct you and your errors,
Monday January 17 was Martin Luther King Jr. or Human Rights
day. For your Information Presidents day isn't until February.
You really need to start looking at a calendar more often, or stop
sending out the JOTD so late at night. Take Care,
~Doug L.

[11 o’clock isn’t that late? Is it?]

Oh man.....bet you get a lot of emails about your saying it was
President's Day instead of MLK Day Monday. I feel sorry for you!
~Justin's Fave Sister in AZ

[Naw, don’t. Less than 2 tenths of one percent of you mentioned it.
Oh well, at least I know I’ve got 5 readers out there. Of course
those replies were from my mom, a geek from Oregon, an old buddy
from work, and 2 are kids of my neighbor LaMonte the fireman; You
have to ask yourself, how many of those really count (big grin!)]
