One day a little girl was watching her mom make a roast beef. She cut off the ends, wrapped it in string, seasoned it and set it in the roasting pan.
The little girl asked her mom why she cut off the ends of the roast. Mom replied, after some thought, that it was the way that her mother had done it.
That night grandma came to dinner and the little girl and her mom went to her and asked why she had cut the end off of the roast before cooking. After some thought grandma replied, that was the way her mother had done it.
Now great grandmother was quite old and in a nursing home. But the little girl went with her mom and grandma to see her and again asked the question.
Grandma looked at them a bit annoyed and said, "So it would fit in the pan, of course."

Most men in the early west carried a jack knife made by the Buck knife company. When playing poker it was common to place one of these Buck knives in front of the dealer so that everyone knew who he was. When it was time for a new dealer the deck of cards and the knife were given to the new dealer. If this person didn't want to deal he would "pass the buck" to the next player. If that player accepted then "the buck stopped there".

Officerripley, terrible situation out there, I hope everything will turn out better for your family. You continue to hang in there for them.

Well just got word from the sheriff's office that the mobile home park that my brother, nephew & niece-in-law all lived in is burnt to the ground; the sheriff's office is searching it for bodies now. We already heard that both grandnieces' & g'nephew's apt. bldgs. are gone. No word yet on when the fam. can get bk in to search for whatever might be left.

Thanks for the good thoughts. Yeah, it's been rough; so hard on the fam mbrs who, even tho still no word if their homes are even standing, have pretty much given up on the structures, but what's also heartbreaking is no one has a clue when they can get back into the area to search for any possessions that might be left. (Lot of downed power lines & melted cars needing to be bulldozed out of the way. And bodies needing to be ID'd; some in the cars.) 

Glad the "Prez." *finally* signed off on the State of Emerg. so FEMA finally got here; it's always something...

Damn. Hang in there, Ripley.

They're lucky they have you; Plenty of MY family would point and laugh.
