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.

Oh, ByTheWay, I've got a concert tonight

Thursday, May 26, 2005

I’ve been out of the choral scene since our concert last Christmas,
which was a farewell concert for our director who died. But a
couple of week ago I got an email from a former choral member who
is in a new choral with 5 or 6 people I knew from our old choir. He
invited me to their debut concert tonight. The Choral he’s in is
called the “Sally Bytheway Choral”. (A weird, but semi-famous name
in this area – Her brother is a youth comedian and motivational

Anyway, back to my story. My sweet wife has had a pretty miserable
cold for the last 3 or 4 days, and she doesn’t seem to be getting
any better. Plus she says that son #4 has been a real handful
lately. So, when I got home, I reminded her that I was going to the
concert tonight. I thought I was being nice and to give her a break
I said I’d bring two or three of the boys. All of sudden she perked
up and said, “Oh, I’ll go!” So, I didn’t argue. She later said, “I
figured I’d get more rest to a concert with you!”

Hmm... so does that make me a boring date?

But, we had a great time. The choral was only 35 strong, but
sounded really good on their debut concert. And, I got a middle of
the week date, with the prettiest girl in town. I’m such a lucky

Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you next week. Maybe even on
Monday. (Or, Maybe I should ‘guilt’ Justin into filling in for me,
since he’s gunna chicken out tomorrow, but no, that would be
mean... hehehe)

Enjoy today’s Jokes!

What were the boys doing while the "7 adults and 2 leaders" were
playing the steal the flag game??

[Oh Hush LaMonte. Just because you’re my neighbor doesn’t give you
the right to give me a hard time... Oh, um, on the other hand, with
all the noise generated over here, maybe it does! (grin)]
