"A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn't think he'd remember. You take me. One day, back in 1896, I was crossing over to Jersey on the ferry, and as we pulled out, there was another ferry pulling in, and on it there was a girl waiting to get off. A white dress she had on. She was carrying a white parasol. I only saw her for one second. She didn't see me at all, but I'll bet a month hasn't gone by since that I haven't thought of that girl."

Donaldy Trumpety sat on a wall
Donaldy Trumpety had a great fall
All the people in Senate and all in the House
Had no trouble putting Donaldy Trumpety back together again 100%, and he and his offspring ruled for 1000 years.  Because some fairy tales don't have a happy ending.

If you cut taxes to the very rich, they'll buy more stuff and hire more people and the wealth will trickle down to everyone

"Once upon a time there was a very lonely bunny who wanted some friends so he found some friends and everyone was happy. The end."

Where my millennials at?

On my first ever visit to California, I visited my mom who was on assignment in Sacramento, California.

She was thrilled to see me and take me to San Francisco for a day trip.

Never having been West of the Continental Divide before, all I knew about CA came from Hollywood movies and the stereotypes endlessly abused by my Archie Bunker class relatives.

(As in, "God is just waiting for all the fruits, nuts and flakes to move to California so he can slide it off into the ocean." --AB)

So I was having coffee with Mom the morning after I arrived, and she was all excited.  "We're going to take the ferry to San Francisco!"

I nearly spit my coffee out my nose.  "Who??"

/it was the homophone
//ring, ring!
///it's for you!
