A puzzle for you:

Ready for some babbling random thoughts?  Fasten your seatbelts--here we go:

Some professional golfer--I think it was Sam Snead--once had an interesting dream.  This is how I remember it:

He was playing in a major tournament.  He tees off on the first hole, a short par 3.  The ball drops in for a hole in one!  He thinks, "What a great start!"  The 2nd hole is longer--a par 5.  He hits a powerful drive, which goes a little to the left.  It bounces off a tree & lands on the green, where it rolls into the cup.  He can't believe his luck.  Holes 3 through 17, all are somehow holes in one!  He tees up on 18, confident that he's about to get a score of 18 for the round.  He swings, hits & the ball heads straight for the flag.  It drops on the green & rolls toward the hole--& stops, 1 inch short.  He's going to get a never-before-made score of 19 for the day, but he had the same reaction as any golfer would have to that shot.  He said, "Oh, shit!"
I love sunsets & waterfalls.  Several years ago (but not for our honeymoon, for that we went to Las Vegas) we visited Niagara Falls.  Magnificent!!  When you are standing at the kitchen sink in our house, you are facing due west.  When the kids were young, there was a vacant lot behind us affording an unobstructed view of the sunset.  They were too small to see out the window so while I was making dinner I would lift each one so they could see all the beautiful colors in the sky.  They all became sunset lovers, too.  When Matt moved to Connecticut, he said it took him quite a while to get used to the sun rising from, & not sinking into, the ocean.
Our grandson, Brian, who is 16,  was here this summer for a couple of days.  He & I were in my Mustang (of course, I drive a Mustang!) ready to go out to breakfast.  I asked him if he minded me having a cigarette in the car & he told me that would be OK, so I lit up.  I had another one on the way home.  I later discovered that in CA & several other states it is illegal to smoke in a car if you are carrying minors.  I had no idea that there was such a law, did you?  No, I was not stopped by the police, but I was surprised!!
I have diabetes, so my son sent me an ad for this medical alert necklace he thought I might like:

Some random jokes:

An announcement is made at a college assembly:
"The female dormitory will be out-of-bounds for all male students, & the male dormitory to the female students. Anybody caught breaking this rule will be fined $20 the first time. Anybody caught breaking this rule the second time will be fined $60. Being caught a third time will incur a hefty fine of $180. Are there any questions?" 
At this, a male student in the crowd inquires, "Er... How much for a season pass?"
A young woman tells her friend, “Paul keeps telling everyone he’s going to marry the most beautiful girl in the world.”

“What a shame! And after all the time you’ve been engaged!”
A man sat down & was seriously staring at his marriage certificate & after a long time his wife asked, "What are you looking for?"  He replied, "The expiration date!"
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine, they lay down for the night, and went to sleep.

Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend.

"Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars."

"What does that tell you?" Holmes asked.

Watson pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.  Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo.  Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three.  Theologically, I can see that God is all-powerful and that we are small and insignificant.  Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.  What does it tell you?" 

Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke.

"Watson, you must be getting old—it tells me that somebody has stolen our tent!"
How about some new definitions?

Honor our veterans!!
