Hey Kathleen, 

Being Coastal  Washington I completely understand!!!!  Not wanting to leave anyone out I'll share
"Only in America"

Things Found Only In America   
  1. Only in America......can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

2. Only in America......are there handicap parking places in front of a skating rink.

3. Only in drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

4. Only in people order double cheese burgers, large fries, and a diet Coke.

5. Only in banks leave both doors to the vault open and then chain the pens to the counters.

6. Only in we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

7. Only in we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.

8. Only in we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

9. Only in we use the word "politics" to describe the process so well: "poli" in Latin meaning "many" and "tics" meaning "bloodsucking creatures."

10. Only in they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.   

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Since fishing season opened recently  Thought I'd share this one.

A hillbilly was stopped by a game warden in
> Arkansas recently with two ice chests of fish. He
> was leaving a cove well known for its fishing.
> The game warden asked the man, "Do you have a
> license to catch those fish?"
> "Naw, sir, I ain't got none of them there
> licenses, no. You must understand these here are
> my pet fish." "Pet fish?" said the game
> warden. "Ya. Every night I take these here fish
> down to da lake and let them swim 'round for a
> while. Then I whistle and they jump rat
> back into this here ice chest and I take them home."
> "That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that!"
> says the warden
> The hillbilly looked at the game warden for a
> moment and then said, "It's the truth
> Mr.Government man, I'll show you. It really works."
> "Okay," said the game warden, " I've GOT to see this!"
> The hillbilly poured the fish into the lake and
> stood and waited. After several minutes, the game warden
> turned to him and said, "Well?"
> "Well, what?" said the hillbilly.
> The warden said, "When are you going to call them back?"
> The hillbilly said, "Call who back?"
> "The FISH!" replied the warden.
> "What fish?" answered the hillbilly.
> We in Arkansas may not be as smart as some city
> slickers, but we aren't as dumb as most government employees!

Hey Phyl...

Actually I DID attend the Kansas City symposium (there were 8 of us) where the topic was "Humor in Recovery".  The speaker was okay, a man from the Sprint Corp Training Center (Sprint University), however, he never really talked about humor in recovery.  He did talk about what personal traits one should take into any surgery to help ensure a positive outcome.  I was a little disappointed BUT my purpose in being there was to meet other ANers before I went into surgery.  I came away with a real warm and fuzzy, especially from Dave Kellogg, who is the KC ANA chairman, who had a very positive outcome.  I can now say that I also fall into that category.

Still anticipating my clam chowda!
