Six Word Saturday -- Got this e-Mail, from ... -- A joke
It has a joke that he sent:
Date: Sat Dec 27 10:43:19 CST 2014
Subject: A sad tale of "Hooters"
To: (a bunch of us, even "Fwd'd" showing some others)
Ten years later, at age 50, the softball buddies once again discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at Hooters because the food and service was good, they had many televisions to watch the games on, and the beer selection was excellent.
Ten years later, at age 60, the team again discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at Hooters because there was plenty of parking, they could dine in peace, and it was good value for the money.
Ten years later, at age 70, they discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at Hooters because the restaurant was wheelchair accessible and had a toilet for the disabled.
Ten years later, at age 80, the friends discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at Hooters because they had never been there before.

I do remember the only time that I ever was in a Hooters. I was "chaperoning" my BIL's son when he wanted to buy himself a T-shirt. No problems.
One other encounter was when I was doing hand/finger therapy after my fall in Ireland (link). Two Hooters Girls came in with four large paper sacks. They left two at the facility saying, "Don't forget, we are just around the corner." I was sitting in the lobby then waiting for my appointment. Before I left we all devoured most all of the wings they had left us.

My Alphabe-Thursday (5th), the letter "F" — Some places I've been starting with "F"
States: (I've been to all 50)
Cities over 100,000 population where I've been:
|Fort Collins||United States|
|Fort Lauderdale||United States|
|Fort Wayne||United States|
|Fort Worth||United States|
|Frankfurt am Main||Germany|
Starting with the countries:
Finland: In the Spring of 2007 we did an eleven-day Baltic Capital cruise.
Places we visited were: COPENHAGEN; DENMARK (two days); Ship: Star Princess (Embarkation Port: Copenhagen, Denmark – 10 Days 07/01/10 (AT SEA) – THU 07/11/10); STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN; HELSINKI, FINLAND; ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA (two days); TALLINN, ESTONIA; GDANSK (GDYNIA), POLAND; FRI07/09/10 – AT SEA; OSLO, NORWAY; and back to COPENHAGEN, DENMARK (SUN 07/11/10 – morning and part of afternoon) then back to London for evening. I said that I would be blogging more about some of these as time goes by. You can search my blog to see how many I missed.
In Helsinki (link for Helsinki CC like) we spent the most part of a day on shore. Here are a couple of pictures (you can click on any and it should fill your screen):
Overheard in more than one cabin: “Now are our feet pointed forward or towards the back of the ship?”
This white church is a Lutheran church located in Helsinki, Finland. It is beautiful and also very active. Mrs. Jim and I had a snack with the ladies in the basement.
Another commonly heard conversation: “Should we eat breakfast at the buffet or in the dining room? I opt for the buffet because we have a larger selection.” “No, I prefer the dining room because I like to have people bring me my food.”
And one at the diner table: “You were wearing a straw hat yesterday on the tram, were you not?”
“Yes, why do you ask?”
“I was wondering if you ever got to where you wanted to go.”
“Oh, that was you we were riding with. We did. Thank you a lot for helping us figure out that figure eight system the have.”
This couple got off every time from the ‘3B’ tram when it got to where they got on. Had they stayed on they would have seen it switch to ‘3T’ and complete the other loop that they could not get to.

- I am in my fifth series of Alphabe Thusday. I intend to put on some pictures of my travels when I can find a few. Some are in albums, pictures I've taken before a digital camera came to me. I haven't scanned any yet.
