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.

Pool time!

Thursday, June 23, 2005

We finally got the ground somewhat level, and took the pool out and
started filling it. The pool we had two years ago was a 12 foot
wide, 3 foot deep pool. It’s amazing that a 15 foot, 3½ foot pool
has almost twice the water! I’m guessing the kids really wanted to
get it filled, because son #4 was standing knee deep in the pool
while it was filling, in the middle of a rain storm, spraying son
#2 with the hose and cold water, while they and son #3 were all

I’ll have to take a dip this weekend and let you know how it is!

Have a great weekend, and
Enjoy today’s Jokes!

Hi Marty,
As a mom of grown-up boys and having followed the missing boy scout
case from the beginning; I can rejoice that the mom and dad have
their boy safe and sound again.....but from everything that I've
been hearing, this boy could have been found much sooner had he not
been so afraid of somebody stealing him. Where do you draw the line
from being afraid of strangers to accepting help from a good
Samaritan? It's sad that our society has come to this.
