Sorry for the lack of posts. We've been very busy preparing for a gathering of friends here next weekend. There is still much to do.
I try to take a photo or two every day. You can always see the latest on my Flickr photostream.
For those of you who use RSS Feed readers, my latest photo uploads are fed here.
Mike is in town for the UK-LSU game, so I will be attending the game with him. It's perfect football weather, and despite the fact LSU (the #1 team in the country) is likely to win the game, I plan to enjoy the day.
I hope your weather is just as good, and that you have a great weekend.
A guy from Kentucky dies and goes to Hell. He had been a horrible man all his life. The devil puts him to work breaking up rocks with a sledgehammer.
To make it even worse, he cranks up the temperature and humidity.
After a couple of days, the devil checks in on his victim to see if he is suffering adequately. The devil is aghast as the Kentuckian is happily swinging his hammer and whistling a happy tune. The devil walks up to him and says "I don't understand this! I've turned the heat way up, it's humid and you're crushing rocks. Why are you so happy?"
The Kentuckian, with a big smile, looks at the devil and replies, "This is great! It reminds me of August in Lexington. Hot, humid and a good place to work. It reminds me of home. This is fantastic!"
The devil, extremely perplexed, walks away to ponder the Kentuckian's remarks. He then decides to drop the temperature, send down a driving rain and torrential winds. Soon, Hell is a wet, muddy mess.
Walking in mud up to his knees with dust blowing in his eyes, the Kentuckian is happily slogging through the mud pushing a wheelbarrow full of crushed rocks. Again, the devil asks how he can be so happy in such awful conditions.
The Kentuckian, with a big smile, looks at the devil and replies, "This is great! It's just like April in Kentucky. It reminds me of working out in the yard with spring planting. It reminds me of home. This is fantastic!"
Now the devil is completely baffled. He is more determined than ever to make the Kentuckian suffer. He then makes the temperature plummet.
Suddenly, Hell is blanketed in feet of snow and ice.
Confident that this will finally make the Kentuckian unhappy, he checks in on him again. He is again aghast at what he sees! The guy is dancing,singing, and twirling his sledgehammer as he cavorts in utter glee.
"How can you be so happy? Don't you know it's 40 below zero?" screams the devil. Jumping up and down the Kentuckian throws a snowball at the devil and yells "Hell is frozen over!! This means the Wildcats are going to a Bowl game!!"
