Where We Live

Saturday, August 24, 2013

Over the last four months, my world has been flipped upside down.

Logan Joseph was born at 9:37 a.m., April 12, and since then Bob and I have been on the best roller coaster ride of our lives.

Yes, we may have lost a lot of sleep, changed a lot of clothes after diaper malfunctions, and completely transformed our schedules to revolve around this seven- (now close to 15-) pound little boy, but every minute has been worth it.

As summer rolls to a close it means county fair season is getting in high gear.

Whether you're riding the rides, people-watching, eating great foods or just strolling around to see the exhibits, going to the fair is a great experience.

The Pennsylvania State Association of County Fairs consists of 110 agricultural fairs held annually throughout our state. Approximately 5.5 million fairgoers attend them each year.

Here is some more jokes to hopefully pick you up on this Saturday morning.

A woman told her neighbor about a friend: Then she asked, "What is the best form of birth control after 50?" I said, "Nudity."

Walking can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional five months in a nursing home at $4,000 per month.

My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now he's 97 and we have no idea where he is.

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

On Wednesday, a Washington DC intern arrived at the White House, still drunk from the night before, and announced to the office his love for former Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan. The intern then took off on a mission to find the Wisconsin Republican and, along the way, acquired a breakfast burrito, lost a shoe -- and lost his job.

I'm lucky to have several lovely little girls in my life. Two are little girls I've recently met, while the third, Caroline is my granddaughter. She really doesn't have a choice spending time with me, as she is the daughter of my daughter.

The other two, Emma and Emily, are my chosen friends.

When I see them, I know I'm in for a fierce hug and I think to myself, how lucky I am to have all these little girls in my life.

The Heat is indeed on, and in more ways than one.

Recently, I blared my radio when the sound of the 1980s hit The Heat is On recorded by songwriter Glenn Frey played on SiriusXM.

For those of us experienced enough to remember, the song served as the soundtrack of the popular 1984 film Beverly Hills Cop.

When you get a chance, listen to the song's lyrics, especially the part that says "the pressure's high, just to stay alive 'Cause the heat is on."

I read with interest a pair of articles last weekend about the German response to President Barack Obama and his continuing approval of the surveillance programs being conducted the security agencies of this country against its own citizens.

When you reach my age, one of the first things you look for in the newspaper is the obit page. It used to be I'd look to see if any of my friends or classmates were getting married or having children.

Now, I look to see if any people I know have died. I also count how obituaries there are of people younger than me.

Want to hear a joke? Ask a young man to crack you one and you're likely to get something that includes sexual assault and female degradation.

Well boys, knock knock this is your wake-up call. No one is laughing but you.

It's far too easy to joke about sexual assault. When you view a female as an object the butt of a joke you detach yourself from feelings of empathy and the ownership of any possible negative impact. Objects don't bruise.
