This pretty smiling face grew into one of the most competitive rowers I know. She was a member of the national Rowing team in 1996 and coaches Junior rowers for the KC Rowing Association. Meet Jennifer Lynne Johnson Jewett. Many people want to come back in another life as one of her dogs.

I saw a sign last night that said only 7 days left to shop before Christmas. I think we are approaching the point where "if you can't wear it or eat it, we don't need it."

How do you get your wife to go to a BBQ joint if they don't have a salad or baked Potato? I wonder if this is one of the reasons guys die earlier than women. Lets see... Dream meal - start with a dozen oysters on a half shell. (Buffalo wings for red necks) Rack of ribs, side of beans and fries, end with a small DQ cone. Dip that sucker in chocolate and there is nothing better. In the old days, It would have been washed down with copious quantities of beer and finish the meal with a cigar.

I read that there is a bus full of people going caroling and drinking beer. Hey guys, I don't drink beer but I love to sing. I would pay my own way. There is nothing better than singing with a bunch of drunks, no one notices that you are not in tune. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to work on my soup for tomorrow. Oh hell, I forgot the Okra for the gumbo. Good thing I thought about it. ADD is more than a math symbol in this family.

I read a great quote and don't have any idea who it came from. -Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Gotta run, miles to go, people to see.



  1. There used to be a pair of couples out in the country where I grew up that would get all liquored up and come caroling. Makes me laugh just to think about it!

  2. By the way, I think that little girl resembles you.

  3. I would hate to have to pick out my favorite niece. Jenn is a special person to me for a lot of reasons. I was the person that gave her away at her wedding. With only one son, that was a thrill I didn't think I would get to do. The fact that we all resemble each other was discussed at the family party. There are some things from each parent thrown in, but there is a lot in common. Thanks for the kind words. MUD
