A woman meant to call a record store, but dialed the wrong number and got a private home instead.
"Do you have 'Eyes of Blue' and 'A Love Supreme?'" she asked.
"Well, no," answered the surprised homeowner. "But I have a wife and eleven children."
"Is that a record?" she inquired, puzzled in her turn.

20.0mph! I rode 10.07 miles in 30 minutes and 12 seconds yesterday. That's the fastest I've ever ridden out and back. The only time I've had a faster average was the time or two that I had someone drop me off 20 or so miles from home so I could ride the whole way with the wind at my back...and those times weren't much faster than this one. I wasn't sure I'd ever break 19.8mph, but I did it. I'm so proud of myself. Ok...enough bragging. I will now return to my normal, humble self.

After ten days on antibiotics, an allergy shot, chest x-rays, ten days on asthma medicine, a pulmonary function test and a visit with a pulmonologist (he’s a specialist, you know?), I find out I have a cold. I’ve been coughing for five plus weeks and that was the diagnosis I received. Argh! I have an appointment to see the pulmonologist again in six weeks if the cough doesn’t go away. He said he doesn’t worry about coughs until they go beyond three months. I felt rather stupid having gone to all this trouble for a cold, but, as I told him, I’ve never coughed like this before. His response? “You’ve never been this old before.” Argh! Argh! So there you have it. Nothing earth-shaking or terrible. Just a summer cold. I'm still coughing.
