Too Bad -- Really Bad
A man had great tickets to the Texas/Texas A&M game. As he sits down,another man comes down and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him.
"No." he says. "The seat is empty."
"This is incredible," says the man. "Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Texas/Texas A&M game, the biggest sporting event in Texas, and not use it ?"
He says, " Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. My wife was supposed to come with me, but she passed away. This is the first Texas/Texas A&M game we haven't been together since we got married."
"Oh . . . I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. But couldn't you find someone else, a friend or relative, or even a neighbor to take the seat?"
The man shakes his head. "No. They're all at the funeral."

Flowers in the wild -- no, not wild flowers
[Click pictures for large size]
The rest are our little red bud tree in bloom (first picture) and the azaleas in full bloom today in the second picture. Gone are the red bud flowers and the white blackberry bush blooms.
The wild, yes, because we have let this bed grow wild. As soon as people do that around here, those blackberries move in.
