Home by 10 Kelly and I were into the Jeep at 10:30 headed off on a long rainy day drive to visit our good friends Caron and Chris who incidentally live right here in our Park. Well Okay so it wasn't a long drive but it did take us at least 45 seconds to reach their place. Karen and Chris are the folks who after reading this silly blog of mind for a number of years and seeing my photos of the Park decided to buy a place here. That was a few years ago and they haven't looked back since. I don't have all the details yet but I'll give fellow RV'ers a heads up on something here. Due to some lifestyle changes Caron and Chris are selling their beautiful 34' 2011 diesel Tiffin Allegro. This coach is in immaculate condition, well serviced, and caringly looked after. They bought it new in the States.
|I THINK CARON AND CHRIS SWITCHED OUT THE POOFY DINING AREA ON THE RIGHT FOR A MORE PRACTICAL DINING AREA BELOW|
|FISHING BOATS ARE BACK IN HARBOR FOR THE DAY OR MAYBE THEY HAD THE WEEK-END OFF|
|TUGBOAT DOCK IS UNDER WATER AGAIN|
|A FEW MORE WATERY FIELDS ON THE WAY HOME|
About a century or two ago, the Pope challenged the Jewish community of Rome to a debate. The Jews looked around for a champion who could defend their faith, but no one wanted to volunteer. It was too risky. So they finally picked an old man named Moishe who spent his life sweeping up after people to represent them. Being old and poor, he had less to lose, so he agreed. He asked only for one addition to the rules of debate. Not being used to saying very much, he asked that neither side be allowed to talk. The Pope agreed. The day of the great debate came. Moishe and the Pope sat opposite each other for a full minute before the Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers. Moishe looked back at him and raised one finger. The Pope waved his fingers in a circle around his head. Moishe pointed to the ground where he sat. The Pope pulled out a wafer and a glass of wine. Moishe pulled out an apple. The Pope stood up and said, "I give up. This man is too good. The Jews win." An hour later, the cardinals were all around the Pope asking him what happened. The Pope said, "First I held up three fingers to represent the Trinity. He responded by holding up one finger, to remind me that there was still one God common to both our religions. Then I waved my finger around me to show him, that God was all around us. He responded by pointing to the ground, showing that God was also right here with us. I pulled out the wine and the wafer to show that God absolves us from our sins. He pulled out an apple to remind me of original sin. He had an answer for everything. What could I do?" Meanwhile, the Jewish community had crowded around Moishe, amazed that this old, almost feeble-minded man had done what all their scholars had insisted was impossible. "What happened?" they asked. "Well," said Moishe, "first he said to me that the Jews had three days to get out of here. I told him that not one of us was leaving. Then he told me that this whole city would be cleared of Jews. I let him know that we were staying right here.""And then?" asked a woman. "I don't know," said Moishe. "He took out his lunch and I took out mine."What do you call it when you mix alcohol and American Literature?
