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.

1/10 - Blues on a dime

Wednesday, January 10, 2007

My sweet wife said that when son #4 got off of the bus-van today,
he was dejected and sad. “What’s wrong?” she said. He said, “Oh
mom, it was really bad today. It was the worst day in my whole
entire life time!” She said, “What happened today?” He thought for
just a second, shrugged his shoulders and said, “Oh, I don’t
remember.” And went inside to play.

Boy, wish I could turn off my blues that quickly...

Enjoy today’s Jokes!

Hi Marty,
Since the books & courses are work related, maybe your work will
pay? If not, have you tried eBay and/or Amazon resellers? I needed
an Anatomy book for a course I'm doing & I found it on eBay at a
much lower price. Also, I found some very good Anatomy &
Physiology CD's on eBay to give me additional background. Last but
not least, some campus bookstores resell used textbooks.
Good Luck
Regards, Ruth

[Work will pay for my books, and tuition. As long as I get a B or
better. Guess I need to go study now.]


One morning a big white goose showed up at our farm's chicken coop
and made herself at home. Knowing she had to belong to someone, I
called the state police to find out what to do. The trooper told
me to hold on while he checked. When he got back to me, it was
with these instructions: "First, preheat your oven to 400

A few years ago we were desperately trying to sell our house,
which was situated on a busy thoroughfare. Our real estate agent
decided to have open-house inspection nearly every day to promote
the sale. We instructed the children not to talk to anyone about
the house.

One evening a man took our seven-year-old daughter aside and asked
if our house had any secrets he should know. Her first reaction
was to smile and ignore his question. But he became more
persistent and, finally, she confessed there was one secret but
she could not tell it to him.

"Now we're getting somewhere," he said. "Tell me the secret. I
promise I won't tell anyone."

She looked him straight in the eye and whispered, "We have
monsters in our sewer."
