Everything is big in Texas!

There once was a blind man who decided to visit Texas. When he arrived on the plane, he felt the seats and said, "Wow, these seats are big!" The person next to him answered, "Everything is big in Texas." When he finally arrived in Texas, he decided to visit a bar. Upon arriving in the bar, he ordered a beer and got a mug placed between his hands. He exclaimed, "Wow these mugs are big!" The bartender replied, "Everything is big in Texas." After a couple of beers, the blind man asked the bartender where the bathroom was located. The bartender replied, "Second door to the right." The blind man headed for the bathroom, but accidentally tripped and skipped the second door. Instead, he entered the third door, which lead to the swimming pool and fell into the pool by accident. Scared to death, the blind man started shouting, "Don't flush, don't flush!"

I had a great birthday yesterday! I got to sleep in which of course was a wonderful start, then we went to get some new running shoes since mine have so many miles on them. Then we went to a luau that the church put on and it was sooooo cool! There were probably about 250 people there! There is a Samoan family in our ward and they all put it on, the dancers were amazing! There was even the guy that dances with the fire sticks...I think the ladies in the ward were getting pretty excited about him! It was probably okay, though with all the girls in the hula skirts....hahahahaha. Man, those girls can move those hips!!! It was great. One of the little girl dancers was celebrating her birthday that day, so they had her stand up there to sing "Happy Birthday" to her, and they asked if anyone else had a birthday that day, and I had to go up there and be sung to, too. Apparently I ran up there hootin' and hollerin' like I was on "The Price Is Right". (sorry Mike, didn't mean to embarrass you!). I had a good time, though! What a wonderful day, and I am so lucky to get to celebrate my birthday on the same day as our country. I am so blessed to live here, in a land set apart by God and started by founding fathers who were so willing to risk all they had to get the ball rolling. God Bless America!!!!
