While I have forgotten all kinds of things in my life, I have maintained an amazing capacity for remembering jokes. As a kid I was a Cub Scout. One of the perks of being a Cub was that every month I got a copy of Boy’s Life magazine. All that I can remember about the Boy’s Life magazine was that on the last page they had lots of jokes.
One joke I still remember was about two old ladies who went out to their car and discovered it had a flat tire. One of the women turned to the other and said, “Well, luckily it is only flat on the bottom”.
In my New Year’s attempt to be optimistic, I thought of that joke this morning when I saw the ice on all of our paths; “At least it is only icy in the places that we use.”
