National Days – Week of August 14, 2017


relaxNational Relaxation Day – August 15th:

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, “Can I also sit like you and do nothing?” The eagle answered: “Sure, why not.” So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it. Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up…


I was coming back from visiting my son in my Miami and I stopped at a rest stop to use the bathroom. I just sat down on the toilet when I heard a voice coming from the stall next to mine, “Hey! How’s it going?” Although I was quite surprised, and I wasn’t in the habit of conversing to the people next to me in the stall, I nevertheless answered him, “I’m fine” I said “thanks for asking.” “What are you doing?” Asked the same voice. To be honest I was a bit taken aback by the brazenness of this fellow, but I would never ignore anyone so I calmly answered, “I’m releaving myself.” Then I heard the same voice again, “I’m going to have to call you back, some smart-aleck is answering all of my questions.”


Nothing reminds a woman more of the things that her husband has to do around the house than the sight of him resting.

radioNational Radio day – August 20th:

My father hated radio and could not wait for television to be invented so he could hate that too.


Radio news is bearable. This is due to the fact that while the news is being broadcast, the disk jockey is not allowed to talk.


If it weren’t for Philo T. Farnsworth, inventor of television, we’d still be eating frozen radio dinners.
