All kids love to play in puddles - and so does this young elk.  He is having a great time!

A man in a hot air balloon, realizing he was lost, reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended further and shouted to the lady "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am"

The woman below replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

"You must be in I T, " said the balloonist.

"Actually I am," replied the woman, "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct but I 've no idea what to make of your information and the fact is I 'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all. If anything, you've delayed my trip."

The woman below responded, "You must be in Management."

"I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise, which you've no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my fault..."

I have received this by email several times now and again today so just have to share it in case you haven't seen it.

It is one of the BEST ads I have ever seen - inside a birdhouse.

"The Challenged Senior"
 
I thought about the six million dollar a year business I ran with
1800 employees, all without a Blackberry that played music, took videos,
pictures and communicated with Facebook and Twitter.

I signed up under duress for Twitter and Facebook, so my seven kids,
their spouses, 13 grandkids and 2 great grand kids could communicate with
me in the modern way. I figured I could handle something as simple as
Twitter with only 140 characters of space.

That was before one of my grandkids hooked me up for Tweeter,
Tweetree, Twitterfon, Tweetie and Twittererific Tweetdeck, and
something that sends every message to my cell phone and every other
program within the texting world.

My phone was beeping every three minutes with the details of everything
except the bowel movements of the entire next generation. I am not ready
to live like this. I keep my cell phone in the garage in my golf bag.

The kids bought me a GPS for my last birthday because they say I get
lost every now and then going over to the grocery store or library. I
keep that in a box under my tool bench with the Blue tooth [it' red]
phone I am supposed to use when I drive. I wore it once and was standing
in line at Barnes and Nobles talking to my wife as everyone in the
nearest 50 yards was glaring at me. Seems I have to take my hearing aid
out to use it and got a little loud.

I mean the GPS looked pretty smart on my dash board, but the lady inside
was the most annoying, rudest person I had run into in a long time.
Every 10 minutes, she would sarcastically say, "Re-cal-cu-lating." You
would think that she could be nicer. It was like she could barely
tolerate me. She would let go with a deep sigh and then tell me to make
a U-turn at the next light. Then when I would make a right turn instead,
it was not good.

When I get really lost now, I call my wife and tell her the name of the
cross streets and while she is starting to develop the same tone as
Gypsy, the GPS lady, at least she loves me.

To be perfectly frank, I am still trying to learn how to use the
cordless phones in our house. We have had them for 4 years, but I still
haven't figured out how I can lose three phones all at once and have run
around digging under chair cushions and checking bathrooms and the dirty
laundry baskets when the phone ring.

The world is just getting too complex for me. They even mess me up every
time I go to the grocery store. You would think they could settle on
something themselves but this sudden "Paper or Plastic?" every time I
check out just knocks me for a loop.

I bought some of those cloth re-usable bags to avoid looking confused
but never remember to take them in with me.

Now I toss it back to them. When they ask me, "Paper or Plastic?" I just
say, "Doesn't matter to me. I am bi-sacksual." Then it's their turn to
stare at me with a blank look.

Water was like glass and there were 5 on us on a pontoon boat.. We saw many things including a pair of Golden Eagles, a beautiful buck and his doe and yes nearing the end of our journey the Bald Eagle pair!!!! the boat was brought up to the shore and got the best pics ever of mom and dad  :eclove I will post on Flckr when I get a chance..
I totally botched the interview  (I was so nervous)   :mconfused but I gave him and told him afterward 3 times lol about our site and it's wonderous attributes! Jonathan Mumms California postcard comes out on Friday evening news at 5PM (the 2nd link in last paragraph of the story leads to the Hornby Island eagles web cam site)
