Morris And Esther At The Fair

I received the following joke from my friend, Ken Gauthier, up in Ontario Canada. Thanks for sharing Ken and keep'm coming.
Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year,
And every year Morris would say,'Esther, I'd like to ride in that helicopter.' Esther always replied, 'I know Morris, but that helicopter ride is fifty dollars, And fifty dollars is fifty dollars'
One year Esther and Morris went to the fair, and Morris said, 'Esther, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance.'
To this, Esther replied, 'Morris that helicopter ride is fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty dollars.'
The pilot overheard the couple and said, 'Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and don't say a word I won't charge you a penny! But if you say one word it's fifty dollars.' Morris and Esther agreed and up they went.
The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, But still not a word.
When they landed, the pilot turned to Morris and said, 'By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed!'
Morris replied, 'Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Esther fell out....
But you know, fifty dollars is fifty dollars!'

New Flower Photos

With the warm weather upon us, flowers are starting to bloom all over the place. This weekend it is supposed to be around 86 degrees. Time to turn on the air conditioner. I have been practicing with the new camera. Tried some different things today. Click on the photo to get a closeup view. Here are the latest flower photos:
