Parent Humor
I called my daughter long-distance just to say hello. She had had a particularly rough day with her two boys, then aged nine months and three years. When I asked her how she was, she replied wearily, “I don’t know, Dad. I keep hoping I’m just the baby-sitter and that their parents will come home soon.”

I was just wondering…
Is there another word for thesaurus?
If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?
If a mute swears, does his mother make him wash his hands with soap?
If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

From the Sheridan Community Chorus Choir Loft
The Sheridan Community Chorus pot luck dinner will be Saturday, November 1 at 5:00 pm at The St. John Bosco Auditorium in Sheridan, NY. All chorus members/spouses/significant others and anyone interested in the future of the chorus are invited to attend. The goals for The Sheridan Community Chorus are to be ready for the 2009 Easter season. I’m hoping to have a place to rehearse, a sound system, a video projector, a DVD player, a CD player and music by February, 2009. Thus making this group a totally autonomous group. We need your help!
