Wonder if you’ve heard this one: An old homeless man approached a wealthy looking man on the street and He asked him for some money because he said he was hungry.
The rich man said, “Get a job you no-good bum.” The homeless man replied, “But sir, all I have left in the world is this 38-caliber pistol”.”
The rich man said, “Well, how much would it take to tide you over for awhile?”
As a result of our recent ice storm, all three bridges to Panama City Beach were closed. In a word, we are stranded until the bridges opened I wrote the following Squall to our local newspaper:
Hep me! Hep me! I am stranded on a cold and icy island surrounded by thousands of voracious Snowbirds.
I have driven through Atlanta on nice days and it is still a nightmare. I can’t imagine what those people went through with the ice storm. I hate driving through Atlanta, but there is an old saying that if you had to go to Hell, you still had to go through Atlanta.
– Stay warm, Bob
