Hot in the Sun this morning but oh so nice in the 75F shade with a warm breeze willowing through our Park's tall Pine trees.  I had things I could have been doing outside but my energy levels were not up to the task.  Heat and humidity does that to me. 

Al's Music Box:)) Tell Laura I Love Her is a teenage tragedy song written by Jeff Barry and Ben Raleigh. It was a US top ten popular music hit for singer Ray Peterson in 1960 on RCA Victor Records.  The song tells the tragic story from a witness' perspective of a young man named Tommy who is in love with Laura and wants to marry her, so he enters a stock car race, despite being the youngest and most inexperienced driver, hoping to win and use the prize money to buy Laura a wedding ring. The second verse tells how his car overturns and bursts into flames, although nobody knows what had happened. Tommy is fatally injured and his last words are "Tell Laura I love her... My love for her will never die". In the final verse, Laura prays inside the chapel, where a church organ is heard, and where she can still hear Tommy's voice intoning the title one more time, before it fades out.  

GROANER'S CORNER:((  A Chinese person walked into a bar in America late one night and sees Steven Spielberg. As he was a great fan of his movies, he rushed over to him and asked for his autograph.  Instead, Spielberg gives him a slap and says "You Chinese people bombed Pearl Harbor, get out of here."  The astonished Chinese man replied, "It was not the Chinese who bombed Pearl Harbor, it was the Japanese".  "Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, you're all the same," replied Spielberg.  In return, the Chinese gives Spielberg a slap and says "You sank the  Titanic; my forefathers were on that ship."  Shocked, Spielberg replies "It was the iceberg that sank the ship, not me."  The Chinese replies, "Iceberg, Spielberg, Carlsberg, you're all the same."


- If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

- Why do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?
Stop singing and get on with what you were doing!!

So I walked into this bar and heard two girls speaking in what sounded like a lovely Scottish accent. I said: So, are you two girls from Scotland?  One of them said: "Wales Idiot!"
So I said: "Oh, I am terribly sorry about that. So, are you two Whales from Scotland?"  That's the last thing I remember.
