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.

Some of you have commented “what about the other boys?” [see
comments] They’re doing just fine. Son #1 is struggling in
Spanish, but he’ll pull out his grade up before the quarter ends
next week. (He’d better!) Son #2 still loves video games and reads
everything in site. He wants to be a marshmallow for Halloween
(hmm...) and son #3 is growing like a weed, and still loves to
tease son #4 whenever the opportunity presents itself. [I know, we
have to watch this, and give #3 a bit more attention... We are.]

All 3 of them still like to ‘teach’ son #4 about life. The other
day son #4 came out of his neuropsych testing to see what type of
damage surgery may have caused, and what damage radiation might
still cause. (He did fine. Some things he scored well on, some
only fair... but...) The test administrator came out for a break
at one point and told my sweet wife that son #4 was teaching her a
new song about Barney. My sweet wife said, “Oh, that’s funny, he
doesn’t watch Barney anymore.” The administrator said, “He sang a
nice little song; something about Barney being on fire...”

My sweet wife shook her head and said, “He got that from his

Hey, Marty!
Thank you for the updates on Son #4. Know that he, and the rest of
the family, remains in our prayers. (And, as always, thanks for
the jokes, too!) But there is one thing I'm wondering about: How
are Sons 1, 2, and 3? We haven't heard much about them of late...
as a long-time reader I feel left out! What are the other boys up
to? How are they responding to Son #4's illness... Inquiring minds
want to know! ;-)
Praying for you all,
~Bea K.
